Well, it IS November, hope it's ok to start this. . .

I planned to take today off of work. I'm soooo glad I did! I've been teaching for 7 years now, and haven't worked a November first ever. It's not fun dealing with post-Halloween kids. So I faked a specialist appointment. : I don't feel too bad, it really is a mental health day. In any case, I'm so freaking exhausted today! Planned to get lots done around the house, but here it is 2pm, and I've done nothing but hang out with dd.

Failed my GD test, no big surprise. I had gestational diabetes last time, too. I go next week to speak with a doctor and a nutritionist. Last pregnancy I was able to easily manage it with diet and exercise, I just *hated* having to do the finger prick 7 times a day! :

So how are all of you feeling?

TIRED! I'm trying to get out with the kids since we're having such gorgeous weather (only a tiny bit of rain in the last 2 weeks), but I have to be so careful of overdoing it. I remember that last pregnancy, around 30 weeks as well, I pulled a groin muscle and was limping around all over the place. I DO NOT want that to happen again...

GOOD MORNING LADIES!!!

Yes, its is 5:30am and yes, I am awake. Have been for about an hour. Will I sleep today? Ummm, probably not. I feel awake, awake. Not the usual, "omg, why are my eyes open?" awake.
30 weeks pregnant last time around found me downing tylenol like crazy, watching my leg turn different shades of blue, and wondering how much it was going to swell. Yippee, no blood clot for me this time around(cross your fingers ut stays that way)
My dd was sooo moody last night. Hyper, then grumpy, wouldn't do her chores (I know, 3 years old, its mainly wishful thinking ) She ate so much candy yesterday...well, so did I I'm going to try to not give her any today and see how she reacts. Moodwise, that is, she's not going to be happy about the lack of candy

waiting on the power of the three wolf moon.

Good morning! Well we're finally enjoying a bit of "fall" weather (at least as much as Florida is), and I'm so happy! I have all my windows open and am blowing the stink out of here, LOL! I had my MW appointment yesterday and am growing along nicely- just waiting to hear how my GD test went. Having PCOS makes me a bit nervous about it, since it's an insulin disorder and all that. Guess I'll find out soon enough! I finally got our changing table put together and am going to buy baskets for all my cloth diapers today! I'm so excited to finally have something set up, makes it feel more real and exciting!

Have a great weekend! We're getting ready to start our 48 shift with the boys (ugh, they aren't behaving very well lately), but I hope the rest of you have a good weekend!

Hello. I hear you on the tired. My husband was just commenting that I seem to have way less energy with this pregnancy than with ds. Thanks! I know I'm dragging along! I am really trying to find the energy and will to start walking now that it has cooled off, but so far no luck. I haven't even been doing yoga consisently, which actually energizes me.

Is anyone else feeling like this pregnancy is going by extremely quickly? I don't know if it is because it is the second time around, but it is kind of scary. I'm almost 28 weeks, and it is November. With the holidays coming I feel like we are just going to wake up and be having a baby. Which is kind of exciting, but a little scary considering I still have a lot of getting ready to do.

Yep, it seems to be going be quickly. I cannot believe I have less than 10 weeks left. (haha, that's going to 40 weeks though and my last was 11 days "late" but a girl can dream)

Anyone else noticing a harder time getting up and getting to your feet? This pregnancy is so much different and that is one huge difference. I guess because all of the weight is in the belly and its just so big. In any case I get sad when something falls on the floor. lol

I'm definitely noticing how hard it's getting to get up and bend. My DH keeps laughing at me for grunting when doing normal things like getting into the car. Evil man. Shaving my legs yesterday was trickier than it once was.

holy cow, is it november already? that means it's only 3 weeks till thanksgiving (USA), 7 weeks till the holidays, and then, it's baby time. wow. that's almost a little scary.

i'm feeling fine, pregnancy-wise, albeit pretty grumpy today. DH went out of the country on business last night, and the boys decided to throw a wide-awake party from 1230 till 245. usually not a big deal- we sleep late, and it all comes out as a wash. except that one of my dogs got the runs, and needed to be let out every hour (or more frequently) all night long. and he still made a mess all over his sleeping crate. so mama didn't get much sleep last night.

but the baby is dancing up a storm, it's a beautiful, cold day here in new england, and we're going out for a hike. if i can make it the full way and back...

guess i gotta make a vet appointment.

sheesh. november...

I cant believe its november already either! We went to the Science center today. It was really cool and the boys had a great time. The little one is passed out in the car still and I am watching him through the window while my oldest is playing in the yard.

I am finding tying my shoes and changing diapers on the floor to be increasingly more difficult as well! I have so much to get ready still for the birth of this little one but all is well so far. I would do it now to get it all over with if I could but of course baby needs more time. I hate waiting! At the same time though I do love to be pregnant.
Have a great day!

Anyone else just not really wanting to go through labor again? Yeah, I lived in denial, happily, for most of this pregnancy but now I am coming out of my nice little land of happiness and bliss and realizing the whole, work part of getting this babe out.

I just got booted into the here-and-now today and realized I have less than 2 months left until this babe is here! Ack! : And I REALLY feel pregnant today (yes, I know I'm no more pregnant than I was yesterday) - waddling, groaning when getting up or down, and my stomach feels HUGE! My fundus is up to my ribs now, so there's no place for baby to go but OUT, and that means possible stretch marks...

Of course, the after-dinner coffee I accepted at dinner last night (bad, bad idea) plus the time change has made me one tired mama today. And we hosted dh's whole family (16 adults and 5 kids, all under 3) for lunch, to boot.

I think I need to go to bed now.

Well last night I moved the living room around. I moved the stupid tv 3 times before I was happy with it. The furniture isnt hard to move but I cant pick up the tv without my belly getting in the way. I was going to wait until dp gets to come and visit and have him do it but it was driving me nuts and I cant really count on him to come visit so I decided to do it myself.
The good thing is I really like the room now! Im tired and sore today and still feel like cleaning!

Tomarrow night I am going to a showing of "The business of being born" and I am so excited! It will be the first time I have been away from all 3 of the boys since the begining of June. Im sure I will miss them but I think I can handle it!!!!

i just got back to my apartment in miss...from being at my mother's for a few months and i feel the need to clean everything..the first thing i did when i got here at like 10 last night was clean the stove. the funny part is i am notorious for being messy and not cleaning...haha. now that i am here i am reorganizing everything.
we went to Gator Growl and the UF homecoming football game this weekend...funny how i forgot to wear sunscrean and wore and necklace shaped like a gator...now i have a big white gator on my chest completely surrounded by bright red. i feel like an idiot. it makes me feel like i look like crap...i have had strangers say stuff to me about it. i feel like i suddenly gained 5 pounds this weekend from eating crap...it sorta makes me feel bad because i shouldn't be just downing halloween candy and cookies and stuff. and i dont' want to gain weight that is from candy. i want to gain good weight. oh well i'll try to be good this week and exercise some of the candy off. and eat good foods.

I didn't eat quite as crappy this weekend as I usually do on the weekend (homemade french toast swimming in butter as opposed to Wendy's!) but I'm feeling like a total veggie hater. I managed to eat some in a frozen shrimp pasta dish the other day and felt totally virtuous. I'll only want to eat them if they are covered in cheese sauce. Bad me.

We don't have a chest of drawers for the baby yet but I'm so anxious to play with the baby clothes that I cleaned out one of mine just so I could arrange, rearrange and gaze adoringly at all of my newborn baby diapers. It's pathetic, I know. But now I'm trying to find a place to arrange all the baby sleepers and outfits too. I don't really need to put my clothes in a drawer right? They can all live in a laundry basket!

I had a bad dream the other night that the baby never turned out of his transverse position and I had to have a c-section. I don't think my husband understands how devastating that would be to me. I know that what's important is a healthy and alive baby at the end but one of the reasons I wanted to have a third child was to go through the whole experience of being pregnant and giving birth again. I need to relax and let go of some of that fear because worrying isn't going to make things any better.

Looks like this next week is going to get cold here! Well, cold for Atlanta in Nov. My dh is rejoicing because as soon as Halloween is over he goes Christmas crazy. He's already "christmasfied" his computer with holiday wallpapers and loaded up all his Christmas music. I've tried to get him to wait till after Thanksgiving but he claims Thanksgiving is just the warm up for Christmas. It's a bit hilarious to me that my hardcore atheist husband is so bonkers for Christmas.

Wow, I must be feeling babbly today.

i'm pleased with the fact that i can still wear my stretch workout pants. and i wear my maternity shirts with pride, knowing i've got a baby growing in there. but when my panties don't fit anymore, well, that's just plain depressing.

sigh. oh, the petty things i complain about sometimes. i have much to be thankful for, and i know it.

oh well...

I'm finally getting something accomplished...2 months before my EDD. I bought bookshelves and got most of the books out of the baby's room closet. My dad got the ceiling of the baby's room painted today (still have to do the walls)...and I'm going to look at a dresser off craigslist tomorrow. I REALLY need to do some exchanging after my shower. I got ALL sleepers! BTW, does anyone know how to tell if your sleepers have been treated with that fire retardant cr@p?

All you guys are preparing so much! We have done NOTHING to prepare for this baby! (I had a hormonal crying thing about it this weekend) Part of that is AP parenting - we will co-sleep, so no need for a crib, we already have lots of diapers (but I have did get 8 KL0s in the mail today!), no need for bottles or anything. We are going to pain and re-arrange our bedroom somehow, but we are going to paint it first, so can't do that yet. I am also not nearly as anctious for this babe to make an appearance. I love being preg and feeling the baby move and getting taken care of, and this is most likely our last so I am really try to savor it - plus it is MUCH easier to take care of the baby now than when she is out

Kinda rambling, sorry

Yep, I feel the same way. I've also been happily pushing the thought aside that I'll be giving birth-----oh it's MONTHS away! An eternity! But now it's around the corner. 7-9 wks. : I've been doing some prep with a doula and stuff but I'm still nervous. The truth of the matter is, I had a traumatic birth with dd#1, and a very difficult postpartum. I want it to be easier this time. : I'm nervous. At the same time I figure oh well, I HAVE TO go through it, there's no getting around it. : I tried to prepare for it so much last time but it only went so far. And I learned that with birth you have to go with the flow. So we'll see.....

Dh and I are also airing out our dirty laundry from the past 2.5 yrs since dd was born and trying to reset our compass for the next several years, to keep our relationship on the radar in some fashion. Growing pains. Ouch.

I'm tired all the time. I'm excited my baby shower is coming up. I'm wrapping things up at work and will miss the adult stimulation and intellectual stimulation. I'm eager to have this baby and try to get some semblance of a body back so many dh will look twice at me. :

i can't believe that we are getting so close...some people are really close...i have anywhere between 8-11 weeks...since we are having another boy i guess there isn't really as much to do to get ready...but i feel like there is...i have so much extra little stuff that i want to get done.

i have also been a little apprehensive about the birth...unlike pp my first birth was great and went way better than i could have imagined, but this time around i feel like i should't expect it to be all great. i worry that there will be some sort of surprise. i really don't want to get transfered to the hospital. i talked to the midwife and she said not to worry about that. the chances of being transfered to the hospital after having successfully given birth out of the hospital before are very little...but i worry that this baby will end up breach or something and we will end up being that few that do get transfered.
i don't remember being worried about a breach baby at all last time....this one is still moving all aoround in there at this point...when do they pick a position? i isn't it usually after 32 weeks.

So I have been having contractions for a few hours...nothing regular but they are real and not braxton hicks. I'm not worried just aware. Anyway, my aunt calls just to say hi and I mention them, because these coupled with me gettings my kids cold and I am not pretty this morning. She asks me, "Are you sure they are not just stomach cramps?" : Um, this is my THIRD child. I think I know the difference between stomach cramps and contractions by now thankyouverymuch. Stomach cramps? Seriously?

Yikes! I hope that this isn't preterm labor,Happymomma. Maybe its just due to that cold you caught? hopefully everything settles down for you.
So, I have an odd question for y'all. Does your belly "click" when your baby moves? My belly actually makes a clicking noise every once in awhile when the baby around. At first I thought I was hearing things, but sure enough, its clicking. Or unsticking? It has a definate wet tone to it. I don't remember this my dd.

Tannis....no, mine doesn't. My hips make noise though. Have you ever had abdominal surgery? If so, I'd say maybe the baby is releasing some adhesions in your abdomen. When scar tissue is broken up, it makes a very distinct popping sound.

nope , no abdominal surgery here. My kness click too but then, they always have. Is the amnio sac attached to the uterus? No, right? Placenta is attached....I wonder if its just the amnio sac unsticking from the uterus? And is that even ok? Do I have bubbles in my belly? that didn't come out quite right, but thats all I could think of.

OMG Finally!! Someone else with a click! LOL Yes, I can hear a click when he moves. All my babes clicked when they moved. Everyone always looks at my like I am insane but yes, indeed they click when they move sometimes. Not all the time but sometimes yes, there is a click....I was totally freaked with my first when this would happen.

I think the contractions are just from me being exhausted. They are still lingering but not as frequently as this morning.

Funny to read about the clicking. About a day or two before my water broke and my labour started, I heard this sort of gurgling bubbling sound in my uterus...like air bubbles escaping water from somewhere. I thought, "hmmm...." and quietly said to myself that something was happening with my water, I'd monitor the situation and see what happened. It was unexpected to hear "sounds from the womb" like that. Interesting that others have heard things as well (albeit different from what I heard)....

Hope you get some rest happymomma. And kehliouise I hear you on feeling a little nervous/apprehensive about birth #2. I think many feel a mix - excitement, apprehension, etc.

Happy November everyone! I am feeling like I'm in the thick of the third trimester here. Rolling over in bed requires a crane and at least two union workers, my waddle is dangerously close to getting me pegged a duck, and holy crap does my back hurt!

This kid is still posterior. My mw assures me there is plenty of time for the baby to spin around. I'm not taking any chances this time; I spent most of yesterday reading articles on spinningbabies.com and did exercises to try and get this kid lined up properly through CSI and Without a Trace last night.

I told DD that the baby can hear her the other day, and now she screams at my belly several times a day : "HI BABY! I JOPHESINE! COME OUT BABY! BABY! I GO POTTY!" : Cracks me right the heck up.

That's so cute. I love the name Josephine. We would have gone with that had this baby been a girl. My kids really love sitting one of their My Little Ponies up on my belly and then watching the baby make it wiggle or fall off. Apparently this is the most hysterical thing in the world to the 7-8 year old set. Happy to be providing such amusement. At least it means I don't have to move.

I committed a serious Pregnancy Transgression today. My DH brought home a GIANT Gingerbread Latte from Starbucks this morning and I gulped the entire thing down with a bacon/egg/cheese biscuit from McD's. Off to a super healthy start this morning! Go me! Should jazz the babe up for the next several hours though.

Please dont let this freak all you clickers out, im not saying that I think this will happen to you at all but when my h2o broke with my first 2 sons I heard a definate pop. I dont know if anyone on the outside could hear it but its like humming and you hear it in your head well I heard the pop. So maybe there is just some kind of internal noises going on that you are hearing.

i sometimes can hear a bump when baby kicks particularly hard. My oldest son loves to put his head on my belly so baby can kick him. He just cracks up laughing. There was a family guy episode where Peter got kicked in the head by Joes wifes baby and my son brings that up every time!

Not much new here, just getting bigger and more out of breath when I climb the stairs! I can still carry my youngest 2 to bed when the fall asleep on the couch which I treasure. I cant carry my oldest anymore and it makes me sad that that time in our lives is over, but we are making an effort to snuggle more and give each other more hugs!

MMMM, pumpkin pie latte sounds so good right now.

I spent all day yesterday running errands and getting groc (we were about at the Old Mother Hubbard's bare cupboards point). So after a whole afternoon of stops and then getting tons of groc (my monthly trip, plus lots of basic things were were out of) all with 2 kids in tow, I could hardly walk by last night. I felt like my femur bones were going to fall out of my hip sockets! Thank goodness for my heated leather seats or I am not sure I would have made it home. I am still sore today, but not as bad - I think this is proof that the third tri has really set in

This weekend we are going to steam all the wallpaper off our bedroom walls!! I rented a steamer yesterday, so hopefully we can get it all done this weekend. We have this really nasty brown grass fiber wall paper that DH's grandma put up in the 40s. Pieces of it have been falling off the walls (sometimes with help ) the entire 10 years we have lived here. DH finally broke down a couple of weeks ago and said we could rip of all off and paint the walls!!! I am so excited. Our bedroom is this funky shape and with dark brown walls it is kinda like a cave. I am not sure what color we will paint it, but something light.
