I wore overalls the last month of my november baby... totally worth it :D Maybe ebay will have something that would fit you and not cost as much as new?

Weliveintheforest, we must hve posted at the same time! This morning I actually threw up from, I think, a combination of empty stomach and heartburn and I still have been nauseous all day. This has been such a bad pregnancy for sickness. It just never wants to completely go away!
I have reached the point in my pregnancy where my partner laughs at me every time I take off my clothes. Can't really blame him; I agree I am funny looking. I keep thinking of the Visible Woman, a model my mom (former bio prof) has; she has clear skin and you can take out all her organs to see how they fit together, or you can make her pregnant by replacing all her normal organs and tummy skin with a big uterus that opens up to show the baby, other organs shaped to fit around it, and big convex tummy panel. I look like I have swapped my usual tummy for a replacement one, while everything else is the same.
I ordered diapers and started washing the baby clothes, even though we don't have the storage space cleared out for them yet. Partner claims that the influx of stuff will help to motivate him to start moving stuff. I hope so.
Ocelotmom, congratulations on the job offer, and I hope you can work something out that is good for your career without being too stressful.
What are all these hot flashes about?! They are super obnoxious! Also, I think I have a yeast infection...boo. Not sure how I would've gotten it and I have never had one that I know of but I seem to fit the symptoms.
I would think so, but this has been an ongoing thing through 4 pregnancies now, and there have been numerous other people who didn't realize until I said something. I just don't get a cute round obviously-pregnancy belly, but one that looks like a standard non-pregnant big belly.
I think it's obvious, and totally ridiculous that people can't tell, but reality doesn't seem to agree with me.
I was finally recognized as pregnant by a stranger (that is, someone not familiar with my normal shape) yesterday, at 30 weeks 5 days! Of course, I've been wearing a thigh-length down jacket a lot of the time I'm out in public....
I will be seeing a hematologist about the anemia, but meanwhile my bloodwork identified a low Vitamin B12 level. I had been taking B12 before pregnancy, but once I knew I was pregnant I was taking only the amount in the prenatal. After just one dose of the additional supplement, I feel perkier already!
both kids are clingy now, feeling the "impending doom" of another baby arriving. DD typically has always either been doing her own thing or sleeping it seems like but now everyday when I get home she wants to hug and snuggle, sit on the couch beside me and hold hands.. instead of being her very independent self. DS has always been more clingy, even while sleeping, so not much difference but just a bit more serious now.
Becca, I'm sorry about your fall and your discomfort at the hospital but glad everything was okay. I was always SO scared of falling in the snow and ice.
I haven't managed to go to the OB here, even though I need a GD test. There's also a concern over health insurance. I haven't been able to sign up for benefits with myself as the sponsor as we're within 30 days of DH quitting and jumping the gun could cause months of paperwork kerfuffle if his benefits have not stopped. I don't think I need to worry about paying out of pocket for a C section right now.
DH has the flu. Being that we're staying in just a hotel suite it is making it a little hard. The kids are tired of being cooped up and just adding a bit to his misery so tomorrow I might try to walk them down the river walk or take them to the zoo if it's a decent day.. if it's the forecasted 5 degrees we'll probably be walking around the indoor mall instead..
