I'm still measuring on the big side. I measured 35 weeks today which has been pretty consistant with measuring 2-3 weeks ahead each time (I'll be 32 tomorrow if my due date is right.) I didnt have a period for 3 months prior to getting pg so we arent 100% sure on my due date so the midwife said anytime from mid Nov-mid Dec is a possibility. LOL So we'll have to wait and see I guess!! She is going on vacation from Oct 20-Nov 6 and the week she gets back is my "36" week home visit. It's getting so close! Baby is head down, butt up, feet on the left. LOL <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/heartbeat.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="heartbeat"><br><br>
It's almost baby time for all of us! I cant believe it! Hasnt it gone by fast?!

Oh and I gained 1.5 pound since last month......putting me at about 20 pounds total so far. Urine checked out good (no glucose, no leukocytes, no protein) and no swelling and bp is good. This is soooooooooooooooooooooooo different than my son's pregnancy (I had everything under the sun with him, GD, pre-e, swelling, high bp, the works).

i've been measuring 3.5-4 weeks ahead for the last couple visits, too. we're not entirely sure of my conception date, either, so my due date is really between dec. 15-25. k was evicted against her will at 39 weeks, so i'm not too worried about going any earlier than that! plus, a's big final is on the 12th, so i have to keep him/her in until that's over! :LOL

My belly is measuring right in track...my butt needs a new zipcode!!! I have gained about 35 lbs but I gained 70 last time and I am starting to get the weight gain lecture when I go in. grrrrrrrrr.....i can't help it its all this Halloween candy!<br><br>
I woke up around 4 am and as I was laying in bed trying to go back to sleep I was thinking....its halfway through October already. Almost November.....then that could be baby month (I"m really expecting a Nov. baby since I was a little early 1st time) Its so exciting and scary all at the same time!!

DesireeH, congratulations on your healthful pregnancy thus far. How exciting that you may not have as much time left as you originally thought!<br><br>
I had kinda set up Halloween as my mental deadline to be ready for baby and Christmas, since November is such a crazy month with birthdays, holidays, etc, and I'm due in early December.<br><br>
I'm nowhere near done with Christmas shopping, and while baby's NB dipe stash is all set, I'm just getting started sewing the smalls, not to mention the organic bedding I wanted to get sewn . . .<br><br>
I keep reminding myself that baby doesn't care how much I've got planned; baby just wants a calm, loving mommy's full attention. If it were not for that, I'd be in full tilt PANIC right now :LOL<br><br>
Everything else will take care of itself . . . right?<br><br>
Anyway, best wishes to ya! Hard to believe it'll only be a few more weeks before we could possibly start seeing birth announcements on our board!

I'm measuring 2-3 weeks ahead as well, but we know our conception date exactly! Still, I'm hoping I give birth a little earlier than later. It is exciting to think of a November baby. My bday is in November, so I'm really hoping this one is born 2 days before my bday as DD was born 2 days before my DH's bday. Or it would be great if they are born on my Dad's bday, which is 3 days after my bday. Is this starting to sound like a math word problem from 3rd grade :LOL ?<br><br>
Anyway, as for my butt - yes, it needs it's own zip code as well. I've actually outgrown some of my good old reliable very large maternity clothes! Yikes!

I was measuring big, but at my last OB appointment I measured right on target. We know, at least, when my last cycle was so we have a pretty good idea on when we conceived. My son was born at 38 weeks and I suspect this one will come a little early as well. I've been having a LOT of BH ctx which scares me into thinking I'll be way too early since my twins were born at 32 weeks and it's a fear of mine.<br>
The good news is we decided on a new hospital with MWs delivering instead of doctors. The hospital also has an extremely low c-section rate and lets the mothers pretty much run the show for delivery. My husband can even catch the baby! Crazy for a hospital, but it IS in San Francisco so maybe that explains the liberal attitude.<br>
The bad news is that it's an hour away. Oh well. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
I've only gained 6 pounds this pregnancy and people don't seem to realize I'm pregnant, but I do get a lot of second looks. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue">
