Thanks for doing this, Jill. I just realized it was December and was coming to restart the thread myself. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
I hope everyone is doing well. I am feeling pretty good, all things considered. I am getting anxious for February. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Almost all of my Christmas shopping is done - just need to finish off stocking stuffers, find something else for my sister, and sew a bag thing for Garrin's grandmother. I have never been done this early - it feels odd.<br><br>
We are slowly going through everything in our house and getting rid of things, packing stuff up, etc. It's exciting to be getting ready for our new house, but at the same time, I'm sad. This is the house I grew up in. I have lived here since I was born (and a brief detour to my parents new house for 2 years when I was 16, then back home at 18). It's the house Gideon was born in - the only place we have that he ever lived, even for a moment. That really gets me. It's hard and emotional. But I truly am ecstatic about the large, beautiful new house we will have. At least it will be on the same land, so we're not totally ditching everything. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
It's still snowing. The snow yesterday and today have made me feel incredibly comforted. I'm glad, because I was quite sad leading up to Butterball's due date, and I felt almost relieved yesterday with the snow. I've taken some pictures and posted them on Facebook <a href="http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=2079320&id=49008371&l=709d05049d" target="_blank">here</a> - anyone should be able to view them. Snow this heavy that lasts this long, especially this early, is just such an incredible novelty here, and I love it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
Well, I guess I've talked everyone's ear off. My goal is to keep up with this thread better this month - wish me luck! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
I hope you all are having an amazingly wonderful start to your December!

How exciting, Jay!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/banana.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="banana"><br><br>
I am 25 weeks now and doing fine. Baby has several really active days in a row and then a couple of slower days. The kids are keeping me super busy so that is at least helping the time pass quicker. Still can't wait to have this baby safe in my arms. They have me doing monthly u/s now because of my age, so at least I get that reassurance that all is ok for the moment.

I think I'm finally ready to admit that I can move over to this thread. I got a bfp over 3 weeks ago, but I'm still very guarded. Today though I had a wonderful ultrasound that showed a healthy looking little one with a great heartbeat of 173! So, I am ready to join you all <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> Please put me on the <b>due in July list</b> Thanks

Happy December!<br><br>
Thank you Jill for the new list!<br><br>
MommaSomday- that's tough. I had a hard enough time leaving the house my family was in from when I was 5-18! I wish you a smooth, easy, transition and joy in your new home <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> Being on the same land would be a consolation for me, I hope you find peace in that as well.<br><br>
JayJay- I'm stoked for you!! I was in the Jan DDC for a brief period and I've been following you since. You are just such and inspiration and I am so so so happy Isobella is almost earthside.<br><br>
Manessa- Welcome! It's awesome to see you over here!! congrats on the great ultrasound<br><br><br>
AFM: 14w 3d, not that anyone is counting.... I almost passed out yesterday.... that was unpleasant and new <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked"> As far as I can tell the baby is fine, but since I'm not feeling movement I still freak myself out every once in a while.<br><br>
I had horrible nightmares last night about accidentally suffocating my newborn baby girl while breastfeeding <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/bawling.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="bawl"> it was awful. Followed by a miscarriage dream, followed by a dream about leaving the new baby at home by accident when we went out to a show. UGH Needless to say it was not a restful night.

It's finally December!! I can't wait to meet Isobella! I'll be 37 weeks on Sunday. Henry is free to come after that. I'm hoping for mid December. He's very deep in my pelvis. Boy am I feeling it. I feel so much pelvic and rectal pressure. I know it's good news. I hope it means he'll be arriving soon.

You can add me to the <b>due in July</b> list as well.<br><br>
I'm about 8.5 weeks now and waiting every moment to feel sick. I seem to get a little nausea in the evenings, but with every other pregnancy I've been sick as a dog by this point. This is the one pregnancy I'm not thinking I'm lucky to not feel so bad. I WANT to feel sick so I know things are looking okay! I'm anxiously awaiting my checkup on Friday, it just can't come soon enough.<br><br>
I'm supposed to be packing for our move this week, by my two year old has been really sick with a double ear infection and we just got a call back from the hospital lab that he does NOT have any version of the flu, pneumonia, or RSV. Good news! And of course, now I've got some form of cough/cold and I'm absolutely exhausted! I'm not one to spontaneously fall asleep, it almost has to be a conscious effort to relax enough. But I was out cold as soon as I finished the dishes tonight and sat down to help my girls comb the tangles out of their wet hair.<br><br>
I do have to share a slightly proud moment. A good friend of mine has two daughters and then has struggled with infertility for eight years. She is due three weeks before Lily would have been and I'm so excited for her. The week before I found out we'd lost Lily I'd started a crocheted sweater for her little babe from a pattern my grandma passed on to me from the 1920s. I actually finished the sweater in the hospital the day after we held Lily. I've partially put off getting it to her, but called her this morning and gave it to her this afternoon. It felt good. And I'm so glad it did. I was worried that it would be harder than it was, but I'm so relieved to see that I can still be happy for her! (There are pictures of the sweater on my blog here: <a href="http://mickismenagerie.blogspot.com/2009/09/crafting-therapy.html" target="_blank">http://mickismenagerie.blogspot.com/...g-therapy.html</a>)<br><br>
Anyway, I'm hoping that December holds some fabulous news for all of us and I hope we can all enjoy the holidays together! Big hugs! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/grouphug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="grouphug">

<b>Mickiswing</b> That sweater is just too precious!!!!<br><br><b>Manessa</b> Woohoo!!

Well I turned 38w on Monday, Isabel came at 38w 5d, my sister came 2 1/2 weeks early, I was 3. So my family seems to like to make an appearance earlier rather than later. The scans seem to point to the 6th or 8th as a possible birthday.<br><br>
Naturally this time knowing I can go early I am mostly ready, prepared and just sitting here wondering when it'll happen. I sort of half got out of my slump and am feeling a little better. In the bathroom I nearly packed away my pp pads that I'd just go out, I was in an 'I'm never going to have a live baby' type mood. Then I did realise even if something goes wrong there's going to be bleeding so I'll need the pads. I think right now I'm half in denial, yes I am huge, yes I've a squiggly thing poking limbs out, yes I have BHs all the time. But all those things are just what I do at this time of year, it doesn't necessarily mean I'll have a baby to look after. I think I'm just sort of starting to try to protect myself, just in case...<br><br>
My OH is being very good though, especially when I tell him I just feel really grizzly and hormonal. He tells me it's OK and not long to go and than within a week we'll most probably have our baby.<br><br><b>Rachele</b>when we moved out the house earlier this year I also felt sad. Isabel was in that house with us and you do sort of worry that their spirit doesn't know where to come to be with us. But also being down here (and closer to hospitals and doctors) I also feel we've made a clean break and started afresh. Those snow pics are amazing. We'll no longer get snow outside our house here but there's a ski resort only 2 hours away so we can get a snow fix if we want!<br><br><b>Jay</b> keep your legs crossed for a bit though, me and Britt are first so lets have no queue jumping from you! Can you believe we're all about to graduate from this though. Who would have thought all those months ago in TTC that we would get pregnant, and get to the end of our pregnancys, and with a small amount of sanity left.<br><br><b>Bubblette</b> our minds play crazy tricks with us. I've had loads of awful dreams like that and it's really hard to shake the feeling the next day. I've put this little guy in a crib with a dead Isabel in my dreams.<br><br>
Yesterday my missing parcel arrived along with the replacement. So I have 3 sets of TENS electrodes, plus 250g of RRL tea, and another packet or two coming at the end of this week. We've pineapple, RRL and EPO so I my body should be fairly ready when the little guy decides it's time.<br><br>
Welcome to the new ladies, nice to see new people moving over to this side. It's always such a shame we have to be here, but nice that there's a new bunch of rainbow babies on the way.

Lol yep - just a small amount of sanity left. I'm hanging on by the strap of my straight jacket here <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
I'm aiming for the 28th of December. I'll be exactly 38 weeks. That's what I want. At the very least I want to go before the new year... Hopefully my cervix is nice and ripe and we can induce around that time! Honestly <i>by</i> that time I think I am just going to be screaming for her to be here already. Here, out, safe...<br><br>
Anyhow, must get kidlets off to school. Then nap. I am enormously tired these last few days...hugely tired... Xxx

<span style="color:#0000FF;">Well done on the Christmas shopping. I'm just waiting on a couple of things being delivered (ah, the joys of internet shopping) and then I'm done. We're heading to my parents for Christmas dinner this year - a treat for the 8 months pregnant lady <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> so I haven't got much to do in the feast preparation department.

<div style="font-style:italic;">I am 25 weeks now and doing fine. Baby has several really active days in a row and then a couple of slower days. The kids are keeping me super busy so that is at least helping the time pass quicker. Still can't wait to have this baby safe in my arms. They have me doing monthly u/s now because of my age, so at least I get that reassurance that all is ok for the moment.</div>

<span style="color:#0000FF;">I'm having monthly scans too which has really helped my anxiety levels too. Your baby sounds like mine - several manic bouncing days then a day or so to recover, which doesn't do much for mama's stress levels!<br></span><br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

<span style="color:#0000FF;">I think we have the same EDD - 30th January? I thought I was a Feb. mum at the start and by the time the scan rearranged my dates slightly, I'd sort of settled into the Feb DDC so I stayed there! I've having a planned section at 38ish weeks so I've got less than 8 weeks too. And yes, I am so ready. May these last few weeks pass swiftly and peacefully for us both</span><br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

<div style="font-style:italic;">AFM: 14w 3d, not that anyone is counting.... I almost passed out yesterday.... that was unpleasant and new <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked"> As far as I can tell the baby is fine, but since I'm not feeling movement I still freak myself out every once in a while.<br>
I had horrible nightmares last night about accidentally suffocating my newborn baby girl while breastfeeding <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/bawling.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="bawl"> it was awful. Followed by a miscarriage dream, followed by a dream about leaving the new baby at home by accident when we went out to a show. UGH Needless to say it was not a restful night.</div>

<span style="color:#0000FF;">I fainted for the first time in my entire life during Emma's pregnancy - turns out it was an iron issue for me.<br>
(((HUGS))) Those pregnancy dreams are horrible. I've had a weird mix of very vivid, happy dreams and very vivid, horrible stillbirth dreams.</span><br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

<div style="font-style:italic;">It's finally December!! I can't wait to meet Isobella! I'll be 37 weeks on Sunday. Henry is free to come after that. I'm hoping for mid December. He's very deep in my pelvis. Boy am I feeling it. I feel so much pelvic and rectal pressure. I know it's good news. I hope it means he'll be arriving soon.</div>

<div style="font-style:italic;">Well I turned 38w on Monday, Isabel came at 38w 5d, my sister came 2 1/2 weeks early, I was 3. So my family seems to like to make an appearance earlier rather than later. The scans seem to point to the 6th or 8th as a possible birthday.<br>
Naturally this time knowing I can go early I am mostly ready, prepared and just sitting here wondering when it'll happen. I sort of half got out of my slump and am feeling a little better. In the bathroom I nearly packed away my pp pads that I'd just go out, I was in an 'I'm never going to have a live baby' type mood. Then I did realise even if something goes wrong there's going to be bleeding so I'll need the pads. I think right now I'm half in denial, yes I am huge, yes I've a squiggly thing poking limbs out, yes I have BHs all the time. But all those things are just what I do at this time of year, it doesn't necessarily mean I'll have a baby to look after. I think I'm just sort of starting to try to protect myself, just in case...<br>
My OH is being very good though, especially when I tell him I just feel really grizzly and hormonal. He tells me it's OK and not long to go and than within a week we'll most probably have our baby.<br>
Yesterday my missing parcel arrived along with the replacement. So I have 3 sets of TENS electrodes, plus 250g of RRL tea, and another packet or two coming at the end of this week. We've pineapple, RRL and EPO so I my body should be fairly ready when the little guy decides it's time.<br>
Welcome to the new ladies, nice to see new people moving over to this side. It's always such a shame we have to be here, but nice that there's a new bunch of rainbow babies on the way.</div>

<span style="color:#0000FF;">We're all ready to welcome you to the world little man, whenever you're ready. Claire, I went shopping for all the gumpf for my hospital bag - pads etc. a week or so ago. I filled a basket and then nearly put it all back, thinking "I'm never going to need all of that" until it occured to me that I'll need it all regardless of outcome. It's definitely a "not getting your hopes up" sort of thing. I'm glad your package arrived and that you're ready to go.<br><br><b>AFM</b>: 31+ weeks now. Trying very hard to hold it all together now. I have another growth scan next week and I'm going to try and get the consultant to confirm my section date. I've had a provisional date since the first trimester but I want it booked now. DH & I are also going back to have a session with our counsellor too - specifically talking about the birth of this baby and what we might want to expect afterwards. I know I still have issues around the way this baby needs to be born and I'm hoping that airing them now might help avoid some of the suffocating me in the pp period. We can hope, eh? Otherwise, I feel BIG - like I did with my DS and achey. Walking to school and back with the kids is already becoming a bit tough. But - as I said above, less than 8 weeks and 2 of those are holidays so I can hopefully rest up then.<br><br>
Happy December to you all <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/cold.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Cold"><br></span>

welcome to all the new mommas <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy"><br><br>
Thanks <b>Jill</b> for starting December up!<br>
like you and <b>sew-crafty-girl</b>,<br>
i feel like my body was really unprepared (with only 3/4 mo recovery) and is really taking a beating this time! last time i felt so great really almost until the very end but i am so much bigger now (it was all my mom could say at TG-how much bigger i was this time! sigh.) now i can barely walk the dog for more than 15 min. have horrible pelvic pain when i sleep and i think my stitches from last time are tender from hormones/pressure because sometimes when i get up fast (ha! not really that fast) i feel a shooting pain in my whohoo! ouch! i just wish i felt stronger because i want to carry him until he's ready not until i can't take it anymore!<br><br><b>(((HUGS))) Rachele</b>- moving sounds like a great new beginning to go with all your new beginnings to come but also hard to leave the home where Gideon was born. i have thought of this when i think about us someday leaving this house and the place where Milos lived even if only briefly <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br>
but Jill is right his spirit will move with you! p.s.. so cute to see your hubby+kitty+puppy!<br><br><b>Jay</b>- whow! she is going to be here so soon! i can't wait either! so stoked for you! counting the days until... your rainbow! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"><br><br>
go! semper gumby! all these mommas so close it's amazing!<br><br><b>bublette</b>- i have had some rough dreams too over the last several months it's so hard for them not to feel real after what we've been through but they are just dreams and our psyche is just working out our intense feelings, it's only natural. go easy on yourself! (((HUGS)))<br><br><b>mikiswing</b>- i've just taught myself how to crochet to keep the active negative mind away. that sweater is adorable! don't know if i am there yet but i did make a little baby hat the other day, now i want to add ears <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> DH calls me crochet queen now not because of skill but dedication! it has really helped my anxiety <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br><b>AFM</b>: 30 weeks tomorrow! feelings afraid of labor... my therapist and i were talking about PTSD and labor after a loss. i am afraid panic will set in reliving the feelings that brought such emotional pain. it's sad because it was a beautiful labor with Milos until that horrible moment... just crossing fingers we all make it through this time to this little guy pink and loud!<br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> to all!
