How far along are you? 36 weeks, 5 days

What will you remember most about this pregnancy? Being tired all the time.

How are you emtionally and physically? Emotionally all's well; physically I've got some annoying water retention and occasional heartburn, but all in all, I think it's going well.

Is baby head down? Yes.

If you have other children... who will take care of them while you are in labor? My husband's parents. They live a couple of hours away, but we're not expecting a fast labor. If things do take off, we've got backup plans.

Will you be giving birth at home? hospotal? or birthing center? Hospital.

Is your bag packed and ready to go? Naah... I keep thinking perhaps I ought to do something about that, but on the other hand, I was a week late last time, so I'm not really expecting this baby to come early.

Do you have any odds and ends you want to tie up before baby comes? Sure -- we have a bunch of cleaning up and organizing we'd like to do, which I expect we'll mostly get done after Christmas, when the in-laws will be staying with us for a few days and looking after our daughter so we can get stuff done.

How far along are you? 35 weeks

What will you remember most about this pregnancy? Unfortunately, how uncomfortable I've been the whole time

How are you emtionally and physically? So very done. I'm grumpy, try as I might not to be and my hips hurt all the time

Is baby head down? Between my knees, almost!

If you have other children... who will take care of them while you are in labor? I have several friends who have all offered, 3 of which are excellent choices. Probably she'll be with us with one of the friends dedicated to taking care of her.

Will you be giving birth at home? hospotal? or birthing center? Hospital, but very much like a birthing center

Is your bag packed and ready to go? No, but it's making it to the top of the list, so it will be this week or next


Do you have any odds and ends you want to tie up before baby comes? Yes, a little more cooking for freezer meals, some house cleaning. The biggest would be to get the car seat cover washed, the seat all put back together and installed in the car. Anything else will be OK if it doesn't get done.

Anything else you want to add? I joked last night at a restaurant (dh and I got to go on a date!!) that probably the one thing I'll miss about pregnancy is the way other women get out of the way for you when you are this largely pregnant and headed to the bathroom!

They do? That's so cool!

I guess this is one of the disadvantages of being one of those women who doesn't show that much -- random strangers don't necessarily see me as being very pregnant.

I'm huge (but have actually gained less at this point than I did w/ dd #1) AND carrying really low, so I look like I could go anytime. Maybe it's fear that's making them move instead of compassion for an overly compressed bladder!

Not for me! I am HUGELY, obviously, "are you pregnant with twins?" pregnant and just had to wait in line several times at a work training. I was thinking there should be a seperate bathroom for very pregnant women!

Hmm... maybe it's not the belly, then. Maybe I look that miserable!
