Hugs leson! I'm so sorry to hear about your cat. DH and I got a cat when we first moved in together 10 years ago, and he just passed away this past fall. I know how hard it can be to lose a loved pet. I wish I had the words

By this point after all the ultrasounds etc, I'd reckon that Charlie is 99.9% healthy in there.

My hormones have been going wild too. I broke down crying last night over the littlest thing. I've been feeling huge and uncomfortable lately. I am ready for this baby to make her entrance. I'm 32 weeks tomorrow, but DS1 and DS2 were both born in the 38th week so I potentially only have 6 weeks to go if she follows the same pattern as her brothers.

How is everyone doing this week?

33 weeks tomorrow over here. Time is both dragging and flying. The day by day is getting tough chasing after my two toddlers, but the weeks are going by in the blink of an eye. I can't wait to see everyone's little ones begin to arrive. Not much longer now!

Wow, 33 weeks already sil! Not much longer at all now!

I'm okay, baby is measuring a week ahead at the momentum but I still expect to go overdue. Lol. I had a pretty poor consultant appointment this week but I've picked myself up from it and have got my fight on for next time I see them at 35 weeks. I've got to see my midwife in a couple of weeks so I'll be bringing it up with her too.

How are you finding things with the boys? You eldest is a similar age to my DD and it just seems to be a bit of a trying age right now.

How is everyone else getting on?

Hey girly.. you're right not much longer how.

AFM, or shower is in two weeks and we finally got the nursery started... Her crib/ glider/ and dresser-changing table are complete. Now we just have to change the light fixture, add the canopy and letters to the wall, put the mobile up and do window treatments. Still plenty to do but I feel like I'm getting somewhere.

We had our shower today and it was a lot of fun, but my bp is up tonight and my feet are swollen so I overdid it - as usual. DH is getting angry with me because he keeps saying I'm overdoing it but it's hard to stay down and rest with a busy two year old. We've done a lot of beach trips over the last couple weeks.

We bought a dresser at the thrift store and hubby still needs to do some touch ups on it. I want the blue paint removed and DH wants to put a natural stain on it.

What are you planning on putting baby to sleep in?? With DD1 she was a December baby so she was in fleece footie pjs so I have no idea how to dress a summer newborn! So tiny they don't regulate their own temperatures, but I worry about over dressing her if I stick in her full pjs. Would a baby gown be good, or a onesie with one of those wearable blankets?

Sounds like you're really getting there in the nursery gagr!

I'm glad you had a good shower dragonfly. DD was an October baby so she just had a cotton sleepsuit and a grobag to begin with. Depending what the weather is like for us in July, I'm thinking sleepsuit or vest and sleep gown. Baby will be in our room until Christmas anyway so I'll judge it night by night I think.

I'm thinking cotton onsies/sleep gowns and muslin swaddles will be good for summer. This is my first, but I think that's what my friend did a few summers back with her baby.

Thanks ladies, I'll hold off on buying the sleep sacks and see how our summer turns out. So far we've had a crappy spring that's been cold and wet, but I'm hopeful for a nice summer. We have a cosleeper that goes in the bed between us so I'm hoping just a gown will keep her warm between us and I plan to have a fan running in the room.

I wonder if this one will like being swaddled. DD1 would never stay swaddled, she would burst out of them from day one, I remember the hospital nurses giggling over how determined she was to not be swaddled. Just a peak at her sassy personality she's growing into

Girly, things with the boys are a bit exhausting but good. My 22 month old is going through a huge sleep regression and is only sleeping 8:45pm - 5:45 am most nights (his typical sleep was 8 pm - 7 am). My almost 4 year old is in a pretty good phase right now thankfully, but he has his days. He wants to be picked up all the time suddenly though which is getting tough.

Gagrl, have you had your shower yet? How'd it go?

Dragonfly, both of my boys were summer babies (late June and late July) and I always slept them in a onesie and a swaddle.

As for me, I had my last ultrasound today! I'll be 35 weeks in just two days...both of my boys were about 2 weeks early, so if she follows their pattern, I only have 3 or so weeks to go. Crazy!

She is currently estimated to be 5 lb 11 oz.
They saw a bunch of hair on the ultrasound
