    • How far along? EDD? 34 weeks this week. Where is time going?
    • How is everyone feeling this week? Feeling ok. Def starting to get more and more uncomfortable. Can't even sit on the couch without a pillow behind me. Also feeling run down 1/2 the time these days. Probably due to numerous bathroom breaks now. Last night I was up at 4:30 and couldn't sleep then all the sudden I was starving. So today will be fun! 
    • Any upcoming appointments? Nothing til next week, then weekly appts start. 
    • GTKY: Anyone started packing their hospital bag yet? If so, any "must have" items you are bringing? I just started packing my bag. Got several outfits for baby. I'm confused on what the "going home" outfit should be like. So packed cute onesies and a couple of dressier things we got from our aunt. Today, I started putting all my makeup as I used it into my travel makeup bag. Also, put the boppy at the bottom of the stroller so wouldn't forget! This week I'm planning to pack any sleep stuff, robe and my going home attire. Part of me feels like it's way too early, but my biggest fear is her coming early and not having anything ready! And I don't trust MH to pick things out for me lol

    • How far along? EDD? I'm 33 weeks 3 days today. I am in denial that there are fewer than 7 weeks left until my due date... I feel like there's so much to do still!
    • How is everyone feeling this week? I'm fighting a cold (again), so a bit more tired than usual. Also I think I'm dealing with my first pregnancy hemorrhoid (SO GROSS I FEEL SO GROSS SAYING THAT). Any tried & true relief that anyone suggests?! SO GROSS.
    • Any upcoming appointments? Thursday, NST and then OB visit. 
    • GTKY: Anyone started packing their hospital bag yet? If so, any "must have" items you are bringing? No! But I need to. Must haves = fuzzy socks, chapstick, some snacks, phone/charger/tablet.
    • Don't forget about HDBD or PIP your nursery!

    • How far along? EDD? 34 weeks--I can't believe I'm second on the list. Crazy!
    • How is everyone feeling this week? Same! Almost done with commuting into NYC for work and I get to work from home for a couple of weeks before the baby comes. 
    • Any upcoming appointments? next week sometime I think
    • GTKY: Anyone started packing their hospital bag yet? If so, any "must have" items you are bringing? Yikes! nope! haha I'll probably wait until at least March 1 to get things really ready, like install the car seat, pack a bag etc.

    Congrats @darkstar42!! 

    How far along? EDD? 
    30 + 2. Due 4/20.

    How is everyone feeling this week? Is it possible that baby moves too much? I swear this kid is already testing me. I was on a conference call yesterday and he kicked me so hard that I said "oh my god". Luckily my clients thought it was funny! 

    Also, lets talk about spray tans. I'm in MN and am in desperate need of some color before my baby showers. Anybody get one during pregnancy? I plan on asking my OB tomorrow but thought I'd ask here as well!

    Any upcoming appointments? 
    OB appt tomorrow. The last monthly appointment before we move to bi-weekly. Yikes!

    GTKY: Anyone started packing their hospital bag yet? If so, any "must have" items you are bringing? 
    I haven't started packing yet but I did splurge on the XL Madewell transport tote. It's so beautiful. @kristimh80 I also have no idea what to pack as far as a 'coming home outfit'. I'm sure for me it'll be leggings and a top, but the babe needs something cute/fun!

    Don't forget about HDBD or PIP your nursery!

    ETA: spelling.

    hitched 5/2009 -- Me 32, DH 37

  • @madasm0530 Yes...I sometimes wonder if this baby is testing me too! If my arm is across my belly, she'll kick it off and has also made me jump in the middle of corporate training last month. As far as spray tans. I haven't gone to get one, but am the queen of fake tanning at home just to have a little color!

  • @darkstar42 Yayyyyyyy! <3 YGPM
    People think we become mothers when we give birth but the truth is we become mothers the moment we start calling our babies to us in our thoughts, dreams and prayers. Some paths are short and some are so long that you can easily forget where you were headed.

    • How far along? EDD? 33 weeks 4 days.
    • How is everyone feeling this week? OOOF. Been out with a stomach virus all week. Brutal. Feeling better now. I got freaked out by some very frequent braxton hicks, but turns out these were from dehydration from vomiting a lot. A very nice nurse talked me through it on the phone and I didn't need a hospital visit, for which I'm grateful! 
    • Any upcoming appointments? Had to cancel my OB appt this week - rescheduled for next week.
    • GTKY: Anyone started packing their hospital bag yet? If so, any "must have" items you are bringing? I've just started gathering/washing stuff for this. I have the baby clothes picked out, and I'm bringing some stretchy pants and nursing tops for me. Also got a really soft terry robe. I think I'll start actually packing things pretty soon.
