Cocacolapanda - yes exciting, but still doesn't feel real...Oh well, guess when I'm up at 2:00 in the morning I'll feel it lol!! Congrats! How exciting that your baby could come any day now!! I hope you both all the best and a safe and quick delivery!

Trying - That's exciting, starting the third trimester isn't it?!  It felt SO real when I hit that stage!

Well It looks like any day the little girl will be born.  The baby can't get any lower, I'm 75% effaced and 2 cm diolated.  My body is right about where it was when I went into labor with my son.  I can't even sit comfortably anymore.  I've got 3 weeks left from yesterday but my midwife said see you in a week or sooner.  I'm kind of looking foreword to a sooner timeframe!  

how is everyone else doing?

Yippiee...just looked at my tracker and it says third trimester, I'm 28 weeks 3 days!! Can't believe I'm there at last! Well, still a little sick :-( other than that no major complaints except that sometimes Olivia doesn't move as much as I think she should lol!

Hope everyone else is doing well!

anxiouslywaiting910 - My EDD of my miscarriage was on my husbands and mine 4th wedding anniversary :(  We celebrated a few weeks early and on the weekend of it I was at a bridal shower.  Your also almost half way there!  Hopefully after your 20 week ultrasound you'll start to relax and enjoy it more, I know I did!

MissmyAngel - I'm surprised with having false labor they didn't check you!  I didn't bother making her check me at my last apt but I do plan to next week Wednesday.  My midwife did actually "feel" the baby and "guess" how big she would be.  She thought she might be a little smaller than my son, that gives me hope that maybe I'll make it closer to my due date.  I can't afford to pop yet, I've got WAY too much to finish up!  I've told DH he needs to just get a list of a few names he really likes, I'll pick one and that will be the end of it.  I don't have time to stress about the name anymore.  Boy with all the stress I've had this pregnancy my little girl is going to be one strong little girl!

Its been really quiet here lately. I have been busy as well getting the house ready for my little man. I now have pretty much all of the big stuff I'm gonna need, now just need supplies and some pants/sweaters. I was getting antsy thinking I wasn't going to have a baby shower, but my DH told his Mom I was sad about it and so she is going to be throwing me one. Almost 33 weeks now. :)

anxiouslywaiting-aww, that would have been so upsetting :( I wen't out for dinner on my old EDD and remember being so sad because I was really hoping to be pregnant before then, but got AF two days before. I'm so sorry you had to go through a double whammy like that.

Amy-He went head down and I dropped when I was 26 weeks. I remember freaking out that he was gonna be born early lol. I guess thats because he was transverse before that, so guess when he ran out of room decided that it was easier to flip the proper way. I've been having a lot of painful braxton hicks and had a false labor scare. I have no idea if I'm effaced or dilated yet, the doctor hasn't checked. I really hope you can come up with a name soon! Though if not, I'm sure when you see her, the perfect name will pop into your heads! Have you asked your son if he can think up any cute names? I named my little brother because my Mom couldn't think of a name for him.

Dolphin-I'm so sorry to hear about your loss :( As Amy said, we are due for another string of BFP's, we haven't had any in awhile.

I've been MIA for a while, lots and lots of stuff going on in my personal life.  Well I'm now 35 weeks as of yesterday!!  I can't believe how quickly time has gone.  I had my dr's apt yesterday as well and it went well.  The baby is head down (YES!!!!), and she's dropped (Ugh, I think she dropped a few weeks ago, no wonder I feel like I need to live on the toilet!).  I'm 50% efaced and 1 cm diolated!  If only that would be a good indicator of when I'll go into labor.  With all these changes I'm kinda starting to freak out a little, we still can't figure out a name for her.  DH said that he's hoping she turns out to be a boy because we love our boys name and can't agree on a girls name.  We still need to convert the toddler bed to a crib, make the packing list for the hospital, etc.  This weekend I hope to finally be ready for her if she does make it early!  Also, last weekend School started.  I"m so excited to be back in school, it's only 2 credits but after this semester I can start my core graduate classes.  All the stress from the past few weeks is just starting to slow down.  I want to enjoy what time I have before the baby comes.

GinaGi - I'm glad you know what's going on, I hope you join this list quickly and have better luck!

Dolphin05 - I'm so sorry to hear about that.  Good luck with the recovery and I hope you'll join this list soon too!  Were due for another group of BFP's I think it's been a little while.

anxiouslywaiting910 - It's so hard to get past that first date.  I know for me when I made it to that date I was thinking that things really did work out well in the long run.  It's hard to think of the baby I lost, but I know he/she is being well taken care of as is the rest of my family.

GinaGi-Hope that when you TTC you get your BFP ASAP! I really hope that they have gotten to the bottom of this!

trying-Everyone thinks I'm weird but I actually liked the juice you have to drink. I did feel a little nauseous afterwards, but I did before I even drank the juice anyways because it was a hot day and I was wearing pants (I rushed out early in the morning to beat the crowd at the lab)

anxiouslywaiting-I know its hard sometimes; My old EDD and my LMP for this pregnancy are within a couple of days of each other, and sometimes I think, wow, I'm seven months pregnant, then think, wow, my baby would have been seven months old. It does really help to have our little ones to think about though :)

wannababy-glad your u/s went well. Sounds like a nice sticky bean you have in there :)

Hello ladies, been awhile since I've been on here as new rules at work make computer use difficult - stupid boss lol - anyway, all is well with me and Olivia at 25 weeks 3 days, she's kicking me a lot now and you can see my stomach jump a little!! I had a doc appt last week and have gained a total of 8-9 lbs - so I'm a little behind but catching up! I still eat every two hours just to be sure and am still sick a couple of times a week :-( I have my gestational diabetes test on August 31 and am so not looking forward to that - I've heard a lot of horror stories about that drink lol!! Oh well, it's worth it!! Just can't believe I've made it this far already! 15 more weeks to go!! Hope everyone is doing well, congrats to all the new moms and bfps!

Made it through the EDD if Angel #2... spent the weekend focusing on my current blessing. Knowing that my SS and this baby both have a guardian angel to look after them. I still can't not believe I would have had my second baby this weekend, but Gods timing is perfect and he has a reason even if I am not aware of it now. Hope you all are doing well.

Had my u/s today, baby measured 8 weeks 1 day with a hb of 177. I still have the subchorionic bleed, although it has gotten smaller... I had spotting a couple times last week so I was so nervous for u/s, but all is well for now! Dr said the spotting was to be expected with the subchorionic bleed and not to worry... Hard thing to do when you have miscarried before... Now, just waiting till September 1st, my first appt with my regular ob!!

Hope everyone is doing well, and lil beans are doing even better!!!

Amy-Ah, that would most likely be why then. I started noticing I could see the outline when he turned a couple of weeks ago, he is head down already. It is definately distracting when he moves while I'm trying to have a conversation! Though he is generally a pretty quiet baby so it doesn't happen too often.

Steph-Wow, time flies! It seemed like yesterday you had her, although it seems like its taking forever for me to get to the end of this pregnancy! Glad to hear she is doing so well :)

So my test came back finally for the gestational diabetes. Its negative :) A big relief for me; I was so worried!

Hi ladies! Just stopping by to say hi.

Treatgirl- so sorry to hear your sad news, but very glad your doctor is going to do some testing.

Many congrats to new preggers and all other good news!

I'm enjoying this precious time with my baby, she is so amazing.  She is breastb feeding like a champ,and only wakes me up once a night! I can't believe she is 2 weeks old already.

MissmyAngel - Ah, well if it's a family thing with water retention that could very well be it.  Your dr might not check your thyroid while pregnant if he/she isn't worried, but if you have weight issues after pregnancy it might be a good place to start.  

Most of the time I can't see the outline of the baby, but that's just how the baby's laying she hugs my spine a lot of the time and hangs out int the lower part in a ball.  When she's stretched out we can see a little more of the baby, although mostly it's just limbs sticking out.  It is pretty cool watching the baby, although when I'm in the middle of talking to someone at work and she goes crazy moving it defiantly distracts me.

Ugh, the swelling has started!  8 more weeks, my right foot is starting to swell up and it's driving me nuts!  It doesn't help that it's one of the hottest weeks :(  We have a heat advisory for this afternoon, I have no air in my car and I'm defiantly looking foreword to a nice cool fall!

Amy-Ha, ha. I love orange pop! IDK maybe its a family thing, my cousin said she liked it too, and I've been dreading it for weeks because everyone told me how horrible it was! No, I haven't had my thyroid checked. My OB didn't even mention the weight gain at this appt. I was sure I was going to be in trouble again since I've gained just as much as last time :/ I found out from my cousin that everyone in my family seems to have problems with water retention though, which could also be the cause. My belly is measuring perfect, though my thighs are covered in stretch marks from all the bloating. I'm down to appts every two weeks now, so maybe I should ask about my thyroid at my next one.

1angelbaby-Woo Hoo! You've reached the stage of potential viability :D Now is when the time starts to drag by though lol ;p

So since my birthing hospital is in a different county than where I live, its taking forever to get the test back for the gestational diabetes! Its been over a week. Hope it comes back soon!

So everyone nearing the end, can anyone else see the outline of their baby when they lean back? That is so cool and strange at the same time :D

Pips - Yes, it's great your off bedrest!  I hope your test went well!

MissmyAngel - I can't believe you liked the stuff they gave you!  It was over carbonated and tasted like orange pop (which I have never been able to stand).  Also, have you had your thyroid tested lately?  I've heard that it's not un-common for mothers to have issues with it later in pregnancy or to find that they have problems with there thyroid after pregnancy.  Un-treated a thyroid problem could easily lead to weight gain or loss.

treatgirl - I'm so sorry for your loss :(  

Wow, tomorrow I'll have 8 weeks left!  After this weekend I know thing's will start to speed up because every weekend till my due date is booked!  (And even a bit after due to school).

Quiet board lately, everyone must be enjoying the summer!

need _answers-congrats on joining the blue team :)

wannababy-grats on the great u/s :D My little mans h/b was 116 @ 6w 6d, so your little one is doing great! I hope the bleed gets absorbed too.

Pips-I know what you mean, time is going by so slow now! The first 25 weeks flew by, and now it seems like time is standing still. Glad to hear your off bed rest now.

Well I just did the gestational diabetes test this morning, I actually liked the juice they give you, lol! I'm worried about the results because I've been having problems with sudden overnight weight gain, my OB is gonna kill me. I got in trouble for gaining 8 pounds last month, and was doing real well this month until the other night I suddenly gained 8 pounds overnight :/

Hello everyone!  Wow ... It's impossible to keep up with this list, much less post regularly, I don't know how you all do it!  Barn ... you amaze me with keeping track of everyone!!!

Congrats to the BFPs, the genders on ultrasounds, and the new babies ... I feel like there are too many to list, and I'll miss someone ... so I'm sending a congrats to you all!  :)

I now have 13 weeks left ... weird, it seems like yesterday that I was 13 weeks, but yet 40 weeks still seems so far away.

I'm still on progesterone for contractions, and it's working pretty well.  I did have to up my dose from every 12 hours to every 8, but aside from some side effects (tired and dizzy at times) it seems to be going well now.  I spent about a week on "modified bed rest" but because things calmed down and the cervix wasn't effected my doc took me off.  It's been a really busy week at work though so far, and I'm starting to get some random contractions again ... decided to take today off and stay off my feet.  We will see...  I guess I'll at least know when labor will start, when I stop the meds!  I've been measuring really big, so my doc said we'd just deliver early if it was a big baby.  My daughter was 7 14 at 38 weeks ... so she would've been big too.  At 26 weeks though I was measuring 30.  Eek!  Docs not concerned though, says he'd rather see big then small.  Glucose test is this week ... a little nervous about that.  Had gestational diabetis with #1, but not #2.  Crossing my fingers.

Ok ... enough rambling.  Hope everyone was is relaxing and feeling well!
