understand the pee thing :/ and sometimes when im standing there is pressure on my bladder , which makes me have to go even more. before he turned he always kicked my bladder. LUCKILY, i have not went on myself ! Packing a bag for the hospital has to be the hardest thing. I've read so many different things on here. i think i'm just going to pack a little of everything. id rather have something unnecessary then not have something i need or wish that i would have packed. Off topic, but does anyone have any advice on the swelling feet and ankle issues?

i'm due on the 11th, just passed my 34 week marker on friday. sleeping isn't so bad but i do need at least one pillow between my knees or a body pillow & i do get up twice during the night/morning to go pee. anyways i'm anxious for my baby boy's arrival but at the same time i have worries & scares, but i can't imagine what it'll be like not to feel him move inside of me now that i've gotten used to it, he moves a ton. i don't have stretchmarks & my feet haven't swollen.. yet. but i do have somewhat of a difficult time breathing here & there, especially if i've been up & walking for a while, sometimes i find myself trying to concentrate breathing & tolerating backpains, which aren't so bad.



i had this dream the other night, it's helps motivate me to give birth naturally & helped ease my fear of birth.
i found myself laying in the hospital bed with my legs in the stirrups ready to give birth, no doctors, nurses, or my boyfriend was in the room only a bright light above my legs. i'm not feeling any pain or discomfort of any kind then i feel a sudden moving but shifting pressure (if that makes any sense) i thought it's my baby boy on his way out! "but wait, aren't i supposed to be in dreadful, horrific pain & screaming???" i didn't care, & all i felt was the need to push, i kept pushing until i felt myself open up, i grabbed a glove from the glovebox right next to my bed & felt down there. i felt the circumference of his head, pushed a couple extra times & felt his head pop out, i pushed a little more. at this point i'm on my side with one of my legs out of the stirrups trying to prepare myself for him to quickly slide out, almost past the shoulders. one little push & that's all that it took for him to slide out. i cut his cord & got myself out of the bed, cleaned him myself, wrapped him up in a blanket & laid back down to get a good look at him but that's when i woke up :(

am 35 weeks as of today and Im telling you I cant sleep at night anymore. He is soooo active and I get contractions a lot at night. I literally sleep from 5am til 3pm. Im trying to do a lot of walking cause I feel like its killing me. Im starting to get sick again as well, not like a bug, but from the pregnancy... I thought I was over that. Im done counting 5 more weeks, I skipped onto days... I want to have a 4D ultrasound done soooo bad, I think it will help me cope with this back pain. I hope all you ladies are doing atleast half way decent by now!!!!!

I am 35 weeks today too, Due Jan 6. I think she will be here sooner! :D This is my 3rd and we finally got our little girl! Sleeping has gotten so difficult in the last week, my legs hurt and cramp up really easily, and then she keeps me up because she is a little wiggle worm lol I am getting my tubes tied after this one, I am a little nervous other than having my kids I have never been in the hospital for more than a sprained ankle.

I got really lucky. The lady who does my ultrasounds just did them. This is the 2ND time she has done them for free. She is great! :-) I love the 4d u can see everything so perfect!

I had a NST today and baby girl got the hiccups and started moving around like crazy!! The nurse had to come and turn the sound down because her movements made it so loud lol



Side note: Are all you mamas doing your regular Christmas shopping? Me and my boyfriend won't really be able to afford much because of the little one coming anytime around then, we still need just a few things. I wanna acknowledge the people who have been super supportive about my pregnancy like my mother, she's been there every step of the way. Maybe like a candle or something? She loves her candles lol but it's just stressful, I love going all out for Christmas but this year our budget won't allow it :(

I won't be able to go Christmas shopping because of my bed rest, so my husband has done all of it so far...he still needs to shop for our two older ones and his side of the family, it's been stressful for him but he will manage. Plus he is a last minute shopper.

In my past pregnancies I didn't start lactating till my babies were both born, but I also go early (34 weeks was when I delivered my youngest) and it started I'd say about 12 hours after I had him.

Hi...I am new here. I am due with my 3rd (a boy) after two little ladies. I have been feeling pretty good. I have my 33 weeks doctors appointment tomorrow and I am super excited to hear the babies heartbeat and ask the doctor's my long list of questions (like I haven't dont this before). Besides the normal round ligament pains and headaches I have been losing bits and pieces of my mucus plus starting on Saturday. Nothing crazy just little bits...i know TMI. Hope all of you are feeling awesome and that everything has been going well.

I'm new around here and due on January 6th with a girl. It's been 7 years since I've had a baby and I feel totally lost. I had to go on Google today just to figure out how to get the car seat separated from the base. :lol:



I've been having Braxton Hicks since mid-October and anytime I go out to the store, I get horrible lower back pain and cramps. I've also had a constant pain on the right side of my ribcage for a couple of weeks now. Trying to sleep comfortably is almost impossible, especially since she's decided to become more active at night instead of during the day like she was before.



I still have to organize the nursery and wash all the clothes and bedding, but I'm such a procrastinator. My mom thinks she'll come before her due date, but I think she'll be late with my luck. I'm just hoping these next five weeks fly by. It was going by fast before, but it seems to have slowed down a lot lately.
