Re: Mommy and Mommy 2B monday!

  • For Mommies-to-be: 

    How many weeks are you? 
    21+0
    When is your EDD? 
    December 7th
    How are you feeling? 
    pretty good. lots of movement. I'm still not showing much, so I'm starting to get a little annoyed with comments that I "don't even look pregnant" and that there's no way I'm 20 or 21 weeks. Sorry y'all, it is what it is, I certainly feel pregnant. 
    What are you craving? 
    ice cream. I'm trying to be really good about not overdoing, so far my weight gain is on track and I'd like to do what I can to keep it there. 
    What is grossing you out? 
    still meat. I need to find more ways to get protein into my diet, which is hard because H is getting tired of dishes with eggs and he won't eat things like lentils and beans. I had a quinoa and almond salad for lunch yesterday, that was a good start. 
    Have you bought/received anything for the baby lately? 
    I picked up a lot of 23 BumGenius Elemental AIOs for $150 on friday. 
    Ultrasounds? Betas? Appointments? 
    no medical appointments this week, Mom and I have an appointment at BBB to set-up a registry on thursday
    Have you / will you found out the sex? 
    Its a girl!!
    Any names picked out? 
    I've got a list, H says he likes some of the names on it...we've not gotten further than that. 
    How is the nursery coming along? PIPs? Themes? 
    the basement is cleared out, construction can start as soon as we have a W9 from the contractor to present to the bank so he can get a check for the materials. he thinks he can have the basement done in 2-3 weeks, depending on the electrician's availability, then we can get started on the nursury.

    Hi ladies, sorry I have been severely MIA. I haven't been good about checking out social media/the internet since I've been on maternity leave. No baby yet, but I am definitely getting anxious!
    How many weeks are you? 40+5 

    When is your EDD? 7/22/2015

    How are you feeling? Done being pregnant! The carpel tunnel has left my right middle finger numb almost constantly. The heat is ridiculous these past two weeks, and I don't feel like baby has dropped, no contractions, and I've been at 1cm for 3 weeks now. I'm over it. /endrant

    What are you craving? anything cold. Sonic happy hour is my friend. Slush and shakes for the win!

    What is grossing you out? nothing

    Have you bought/received anything for the baby lately? not really

    Ultrasounds? Betas? Appointments? I was supposed to be induced tomorrow, but L&D is full. So now I get to see the Dr, and go from there.

    Have you / will you found out the sex? Little girl

    Any names picked out? Olivia

    How is the nursery coming along? PIPs? Themes? It's done, I'll try and upload a picture.

    Anything else you would like to add or PIP? I have been having some lower back pain the past day which is new for this pregnancy. It comes on and off for about 1-2 hours, then goes away for many hours. Could those be contractions? I hear about some people talking about "back labor" so I'm just curious.

    Sorry I have been so MIA! We have had a lot going on with our summer plans and it's been pretty crazy for us!

    Best part of week: we had her baptism this weekend and my sister came to spend the weekend with us. The whole weekend was amazing!
    Worst part of week: It's not really the worst part but I'm stopping BF and pumping completely so I'm now trying to dry my milk up

    Milestones: LO can sit like a tripod for a few seconds on her own, she is trying to scoot when on the floor, she is on a pretty good sleep schedule, and she is eating Sweet potatoes, carrots, butternut squash, peas, apples but hateesss bananas!
