Quoting LayLu:" This is me today.. 35 weeks 4 days: I don't think I'm getting any bigger.. my stomach looks the same ... [snip!] ... gaining weight). And I just noticed I'm wearing the same pajama pants that I was wearing in the last belly pic I posted. :lol:"


slightly jealous.. ur tiny!!! ahhhh screw u lol jk I gained 4 lbs in ONE week lol lucky duck!



that's all I'm wearing anymore is stretchy pants, pj pants, and hubby's t-shirts. The XL shirts I got for myself are too tight :( I gotta steal his XXL shirts and of ocurse he's losing weight so he's been wearing my XL ones.

nope no belly mold/cast thing for me. never wanted to do it. I wouldn't know what to do with it afterwards anyways. I usually take weekly belly photos... been real bad this pregnancy about that, and my friend scrapbooks so she takes them and adds them to a book for me. I only get maternity pics done as something special.

lmao You're the first person to call me tiny, that's for sure! Thank you though. :) I definitely don't feel tiny hahah I feel like a swollen whale.



And when I'm not at work, I'm in PJ pants and whatever shirt I decide to wear. Lately it's been a lot of random tanktops (these aren't even maternity tops, they're just crazy long so I can still wear em hahah) and giant band shirts that I'm happy I never threw away. Luckily, I already had a collection of baggy pajama pants so I've been set on those. :P

I'll try to get a belly pic up tomm, gotta wear something that fits right so you can see. But yay Alisa! Can't wait to hear how things go and see some pictures! That's pretty exciting. I'm having so much cramping at night and I swear she's getting more antsy..



Waiting out these six more weeks is gonna be tough. Wish I was sooner.

Yes, both of you definitely need to post belly pics! Alisa, I'm so excited for you! If I were you, I'd go out to eat or have some sort of a date night and enjoy one last night with your LO still in your belly. Definitely post pics as soon as you can! :D



And I can't believe I'll be 36 weeks on Saturday.. and they want her out by 39 weeks so I've only got three more weeks left. She better come out on her own! With my last pregnancy, I went into labor at 36 weeks out of nowhere.. I had no signs of early labor or anything, then one night he just decided to come.. no warning or nothing. I'm hoping that happens with Layla because as of right now, it seems like she's never going to come out.

Well just back from the docs, the source of my pain is my big ol' baby's HEAD!! He went to check my cervix and was like umm that's a head! My cervix is still closed though so she's just really low. He sad I can take Tylenol aa much as I need to relieve some of the pain nut besides having the baby there is nothing he can do to help me. He scheduled my next ultrasound for he 28th and other than that, everything looks good. :)

lol you ladies are getting me all worked up. I can't believe how close we are all getting. I'm so excited for Alisa I can't even explain. I would love to be able to be in her shoes and be able to hold little Claire tomorrow. So envious!!!



But yeah, I just got to hubs' work and we are eating our bagel breakfast so i'll get to that belly picture.



And yeah I dunno why it seems like she's only low mostly at night for me, and once she's awake she's like "ehh, i'll float up top." because I swear she's a bit higher when i'm up and at the end of the night she sinks. I think she's tired this morning because she's low and i'm having problems with walking again. Maybe i'm just imagining things.



But yeah my husband's niece and nephew are graduating from high school this year and I don't think i'm gonna be able to attend. The baby keeps giving me this feeling of uncertainty because these nights keep getting harder and harder. I was having cramps again last night and I honestly have no idea how to distinguish a contraction or BH or whatever.

That second picture was my side still, almost looks like the front but I had to crop it because of how horrible the shine of my shirt showed through. So at my fullest looking I might resemble the second picture but.. these are both taken just now. I thought my tank top would show better than my top layer shirt.



I swear when comparing bumps I feel like i'm doing something wrong.

Ok, so here's my update... I went in for my 34 week appointment on Monday. They estimated she is weighing about 6lbs... So no sweet tea or soda for me :/ she is head down though, so all is going good. Now the fun part of the update... Tuesday morning about 4am I woke up needing to go to the bathroom. Our bed sits pretty high and somehow I fell getting out of it. I landed wrong on my left foot, it went sideways and popped and I couldn't move it. Luckily I didn't hit my belly! Anyways, went to the er and after they xrayed it, said it wasn't broken and sent me home with crutches, and told me to put pressure on it... I couldn't even lay my foot flat on the ground. I get a call a few hours later from the er saying the overview of the xray shows a possible chip in the bone below my big toe. My whole foot is swollen and bruised. I finally get an appt with an orthopedic surgeon this morning. I fractured my foot in a couple places and have torn ligaments. I'm in a boot cast for at least 6 weeks. I'll probably be having this baby with it on... I swear I have the worst luck ever. The hospital up here is probably one of the worst places ever to go, Greenbrier valley medical center, also known around here as death valley... Real nice huh? And this happens regularly to people. When I was about 14 I broke my ankle but when I went in, they put me in an air cast and told me to walk on it, only to find out I shouldn't be walking at all on it. They really need to get their shit together.... Rant over guys. Hope everyone is doing well. I've just recently started noticing what I'm assuming are bh contractions. We don't have much longer to go ladies! I can't wait to hold my little girl. I just wish I wouldn't have been so clumsy and done this to my foot. :( tylenol doesn't help at all so I just have to deal with the pain.

you are tiny! so cute.

Thanks Danielle, I certainly don't feel cute. lol.. I feel weirded out. I'm a tall and heavy person so I always assumed i'd be like the chewing gum girl from Willy Wonka who blew up like an air balloon. So far, it looks like i'm not nearly as pregnant so most of the people in my family aren't as excited because it doesn't seem as real to them just yet. =/



But aww Lyndsay! I was wondering why I haven't heard from you, woman. I'm sorry about the streak of bad luck. I don't blame you entirely though, because now that we are getting bigger and the babies just hitting us the wrong way, I hear it's common for women to lose their balance at this stage and such. I almost tripped myself on our stool the other day and it scared the crap out of me. It's funny you mention the sweet tea because I can't seem to stop drinking those or honey green teas. (Even though our other mommy is right, I should really watch my green tea but I just drink one glass a day maybe.) I just can't stop wanting sweet drinks. I don't care about soda so much but I want smoothies, starbucks iced coffees, sweet teas, juice..



And dang Alisa, I'm so excited for you! Woohoo!

Just out of curiosity, has anyone here had or thinking of having a steroid shot in case the baby comes early? A friend of mine was telling me I should get it because she herself had complications and back then she was worried i'd have the same and I dunno. I think I'm just overthinking things, but like I said, I'm a preparedness freak and I can't shake the feeling she might try to come early.



The shot i'm talking about is to speed up her lung maturity and I guess you have to get two shots 24 hours apart? I don't think my midwife will let me get it but I was going to ask her about it when I go in next week on Tuesday. Is it a bad idea to be precautionary?
