How far along? 36w2d
Weight gain: 27lbs
Cravings / aversions? Not anymore
Is your hospital bag packed? Ugh, no not yet. I need to do that this week.
What do you have left to buy? I think we just need the double stroller and then we will have everything we need!
Is the nursery ready? Almost - painting is done, moved the dresser and changing table in this weeked. It was our guest room and we are actually moving the guset bed back in for the first couple weeks after she arrives since we will have people staying here and she will be in a bassinet in our room. Then we will move the bed out and the crib in and hang all the stuff on the walls once everyone leaves.
Do you or your doctor think you will go early? I don't think so - I didn't with Ava. My doc won't be checking me for dilation or effacement since i'm a scheduled c-section so he has no opinion either way.
Are you happy or sad that the pregnancy is almost over? HAPPY. I strongly dislike being pregnant and can't wait to meet this little lady!
How are you feeling physically? Not so great. The swelling has started in my hands and feet - luckily it doesn't seem to be as bad as it was with Ava. I'm just very uncomfortable these days and doing much of anything is very taxing. And she seems to be positioned in a way that when I walk around, she shifts directly onto my bladder and pinches it - and OH MY does that hurt!
Appts: Going weekly now, so appt this Friday at 11am.
Other: Starting to feel very nervous about how Ava is going to do with all of this. Wishing I didn't have to leave her and be in the hospital for 3.5 days since it is a c-section. I'm going to miss her terribly. My parents will be here with her and I know she'll have fun with them but I still think its going to be hard for her.

How far along? 35W5D
Weight gain: A lot! Like 40 lbs. Yikes!!
Cravings / aversions? Carrot Cake!!!!
Is your hospital bag packed? NO! I don't know why but I keep putting this off...am I in denial???
What do you have left to buy? Nothing - as far as I know. I am sure I am forgetting something. Maybe a "going home" outfit.
Is the nursery ready? Almost, our dresser/changing table has been on back order since Jan. 5th...and it is FINALLY in, so we are picking it up on Wednesday. Once that is here and I have all her clothes in it, we are 100% done!!!
Do you or your doctor think you will go early? We really haven't discussed yet. I go back next Monday for my 36 week check up and they are going to do the strep test and told me they can check my cervix then if I want them to. I do want them to!!
Are you happy or sad that the pregnancy is almost over? Happy!!! I have enjoyed it, but am OVER IT! Very ready to meet her and I can't wait to move around without pain and I want to excercise really hard and sweat. Haven't done that in forever!!
How are you feeling physically? Not great. My back is killing me and this going to pee every 45 minutes sucks...especially at night! Not getting good sleep at all.
Appts: Going in next Monday and from there weekly.
Other: Just getting nervous about the delivery. My doctors keep saying everything is perfect but I just don't feel like they have enough data to say that. All they do is measure my belly on each appointment, check blood pressure and have me pee in a cup. How can they possibly know that everything is OK? And, I am now starting to get nervous about the pain - especially the tearing part....for some reason I cannot get that out of my head! Ouch!!!! I will have drugs, but the whole thought of that makes me really grossed out. And, I am nervous about breastfeeding and really hope it works for me!
