So I don't have any pics to share with you ladies, Layla didn't wanna cooperate today. She's head down and wanted to keep her hands over her face the entire time. :lol: They looked at everything, said all of her organs are perfect, but she is measuring a little big (which is kind of expected, considering I'm a diabetic). They said she already weighs about 4 pounds 13 ounces! :shock: I feel like that's really big..

Quoting Mama to Lexi & Madie:" YAY can't wait to see pics! And Im not sure about the twice a week appoinments..I know mine are every two weeks and it usually take 30-45 mins once im there. Same for the ultrasounds.."


I probably have to go twice a week because I'm a diabetic, I'm not sure if they do the NSTs both days of the week or if one day is an NST and the other is a regular check up. I know I had to do it with my last pregnancy though.

She was 4lbs at 30 weeks I believe. So Im assuming she close to 5lbs now?.. if that makes any sense. We are just gonna have some chunky babies mama! As long as they are healthy Im okay with a chunker. :D

Hahah, well I figured she'd be a chunker. My angel baby was a month early and he weighed 7 lbs. 13 oz. On top of that, SO's mom had three kids and her smallest was eight pounds.. so I'm destined to have a fat baby hahah. Looks like I gotta stock up on some 0-3 month clothing and ditch the newborn stuff. I have a few newborn onesies, but I have a strong feeling I won't need them lol.

Yeah I feel ya. My DD1 was 7lbs 15oz and was 4 days overdue. This one if I make it to 40 weeks will be almost 9lbs! I dont know if I can push that out! LOL I have only a few newborn outfits most are 3-6 months..I am thinking that if shes anything like her sister..she will be 12 lbs by 3 weeks old! lol

Perfect too bc kids will be at school til 2pm. Ugh I hear ya on the miserable sleep. Dd1 kept us up til after 2am then fell asleep in our bed n woke everyone up at 530am bc "well the sun is up and so am I". ... She even woke dd2 up who is NOT a morning person and has been grouchy since. Tnite- NO kids in our bed no matter what. They will sleep in their rm together even if I have to duct tape them to their bed!!! (Jk). And I've got 1 male bunny gone, another on hold til may bc he's too little still. So down to 7 babies left. Minus 2-3 I wanna keep= 4-5 left. Plus 2 to sil?=2-3. Not bad. Getting there. Baby shower sat. at noon. Picking my cake out tomorrow too.

I'm 31 weeks and 4 days right now.. it sounds like she's a few ounces bigger than she should be. And yeah, she refused to move those hands from her face. She's still a girl though! lol The ultrasound lady kept saying "he" and I was like, "What..?!" lol She said her first ultrasound this morning was a boy and she's been calling all the babies "he" all day lol it freaked me out so I made her double check.



Congrats on closing that loan! Sounds like it's right on time, too. Ugh, I'm jealous your baby shower is so soon.. mine won't be til May 11th. I feel like I'm waiting way too long.



And oh my GOD.. as I'm typing all this I hear a grinding noise, I assumed my dog was chewing on a bone, I look back and he's fucking grinding his teeth on the hardwood floor chewing on it. What the FUCK!!! :x

That rascally dog of yours.. lol.. I don't know how you can put up with that. Because I ended up taking over the garage studio, my brother has had to move upstairs to the house with the dogs and so when he lets them out they do nothing but bark all day and it makes the baby move inside in a way that makes me think she hates it. It drives me CRAZY. I get so mad.



I ate the hell out of some fast food just now getting back from the test and docs, and my husband had a box of see's dark chocolate a customer gave him so i'm like all over it even though I like milk chocolate and not dark.



I hate being starved and how I look afterwards. And yeah I'm wondering why you ladies are having cute little chunky babies and it looks like you guys have gained zero weight, but me i've gained like 38 pounds here in my week 30 and baby is only about 3 pounds. I look so incredibly fat and disgusting. I'll have to do a before and after pic for you ladies to show just how you all must have robbed all the pregnancy glow and beauty there is, since I have ZILCH going on in that dept.



Haha.. but yeah, I'm not sure about the glucose test today. I kept getting repricked by some lady who did not know how to draw blood. The first lady who helped me was amazing and so accomodating, even getting me a bed to lay in and put a trash next to me and box of kleenex and even a blanket. I was like geez, can I take you home with me so you can just take care of me for the rest of my pregnancy?

I'm getting so tired of it.. I'd love to have him trained, but we still need so much for Layla, I don't see how we could afford it. Plus SO is really attached to him.. I'm afraid he's going to resent me if I get rid of him. I don't know what to do though, he's destroying our house! And this is the first place we've ever had of our own, our first actual house we've lived in other than our parents.. so I take pride in it, and it really pisses me off that this dog just fucks it up. :x



I would love some fast food right about now lol. I got denied for food stamps (they said we make too much) :? so we're broke as shit and don't have a lot of groceries at the moment and I'm starvinggg! And, girl, I love some dark chocolate. My mom got me these dark chocolate eggs around Easter time and I still have some.. sssooo good!



And I've gained more weight than you have, so shut your mouth. :lol: I've already gained about 40 pounds (probably more, I haven't gotten weighed in a while) and I HATE it. I'm going to dread looking in a mirror once Layla gets here. And I don't think I got much of the pregnancy glow lol my hair is all gross and frizzy lately and my chin has been breaking out like CRAZY for like three weeks now. I just feel gross and tired and I'm ready for this pregnancy to be over with!

lmao.. me and you both, sister. We sound like twins. Good thing we don't live near each other or else we'd have to besties and drive our men nuts together. lol



But yeah I'm pretty much at the same place you are, so you can't really compare there! Only difference is, I'd be better off being starved with how badly I keep eating. It's hard though. I don't know why i'd rather not eat if you give me something healthy and all the not good stuff tastes more tolerable. I mean I still love salads and stuff, but I dunno why it seems like when i'm ready for something healthy there's always something not so fresh about it. Sounds like an excuse, I know. :D



So did you apply for WIC too? Or no? Or does not making it for foodstamps means you can't get WIC either? I love fruits like crazy so I can eat that happily but meh. I don't do the snacking rule very well. Like how you should just eat smaller meals.

lol I don't eat salads or anything.. but I eat fruit just about every day and I try to eat a lot of protein.. like I'll usually eat some string cheese in my lunch and some light yogurt or something, so I wouldn't say I don't eat healthy.. I just don't eat as healthy as I should lol.



And no, I didn't apply for WIC, that's an entirely different application, but I'm sure I'd qualify for that.. even military qualifies for it, so I know I could. I just gotta carry my happy ass up there and do it.. and it's a pain in the ass because the social services office near me is always packed full of people, there's always a huge line and there's usually only one person at the counter to help everyone. :roll:

Yeah the offices are usually super hectic. I try to go first thing in the morning but it seems to just always be busy. Maybe you can take one of the days you need to go to the docs or something and just try to see if you can get it all done. Just check beforehand what kind of documents you need so you can be ready to go. This way you can get cereal and some food to help yourself out and such. =T

Call and schedule an appt for WIC. That way ur not there for forever. Go on ur .gov site see if u can apply online too. Ull get WIC. U really have to make a shit ton to not qualify even for a family of 3. Some days I wish we still got WIC but glad no more appts for that ugh gets old after awhile lol

Thanks ladies! I got WIC with my last pregnancy but didn't really have to keep up with appointments since LO didn't make it.. I think I had like one appointment after I got them but that was it. I heard something about WIC giving women breast pumps if they ask for one? Have you guys heard of that..? I guess it would make sense since they give you free formula. And yeah, I'd have to go in on one of my days off.. lord only knows how long I'd be in there. I didn't know you could make appointments first though, maybe I'll try that. And I already have all of my financial stuff together in a folder.. every bill I pay, my lease which shows how much rent I pay, all of my medical forms.. it's all in a folder together, so that's probably all I'd need. And I know I'd qualify.. if military can qualify, I don't see how I wouldn't hahah. It's just a matter of getting it done.



So how's everyone's day going so far? I'm playing hookie from work today.. SO called out because apparently there's a bunch of shit going on with his company that he just doesn't feel like dealing with (they have an inspection coming up, apparently no one's working at his job site today cuz no one wants to deal with it so he jumped on the band wagon), and when I woke up this morning I could barely get out of bed.. I tried rolling over and had these super intense pains in my lower back, I just about screamed. SO jumped out of bed so quick, he thought I was going into labor lol. He said I got his hopes up lmao (he's so ready for the baby to get here).
