33 week bump pic!
In our work-in-progress nursery. We're working on it I swear!

My pelvis feels like it has been blown apart in the last two weeks. It pops when I go upstairs or flip in bed. It's incredibly difficult to get comfortable even with my little SI joint band I got for support.

How's everyone else? I'm starting to reeeeeally hope my belly measuring steadily two weeks ahead since they started keeping track with the tape measure will work in my favor and she'll be two weeks early. I'm starting to be preeeeetty uncomfortable.

^ Yeah I'm pretty much the same fisher, uncomfortable and my pelvis hurts, I have mild SPD so I just take it easy but I'm stubborn and still try to get a zillion things done in a day. Nesting nesting nesting. I'm also hoping mine comes a few weeks early to but I'm measuring a week behind fundal height, I was measuring up to 4 weeks behind with my son and he came at 40+4.

How is everyone else?

Looking great Fischer!!!

I too am very uncomfortable now - swelling in my hands and feet, well actually everywhere as I notice it in my arms and calves too!! And my lower back is aching all the time now

I had a scan a few weeks back and baby was 4 lbs 12 oz so 59TH percentile so measuring on track to be a "good" sized baby! Had my GBS swab last week and will get those results on the 20th.

Nursery is coming together, crib should be here within the next few weeks and my rocking chair should be here early in March! Honestly I am just READY for this baby to come out. I have decided 37.5 to 39 weeks is the PERFECT time for him to arrive!!

My little fellow now weighs 5lbs 15oz, although some of his weight in oz is due to a little bit of fluid he has. Nonetheless, he's definitely 5lbs! He's also now taking 1.5oz of milk! He continues to be stable. His little lungs are still catching up, and they're continuing to work on his nutrition, but overall he's doing great!!!

Thanks for the update - do they think he will go home around your original due date? (I know they sometimes use this as a rough estimate). So glad he is doing so well!

Desires that's great news! He's exactly where he should be weight wise for a 36 weeker! I hope he can come home soon with you. Do you have any pics?

Great news, Desires! He really is a fighter! I just went back and read your birth story from a few pages back since I'm dealing with my own pre-term labor issues now (although fortunately later in the pregnancy). I went in for a routine NST last Monday at 31 weeks, 3 days and I was apparently contracting every 3 minutes (I had no idea). I was dialated 1.5 cm, so they admitted me right away. They put me on some pretty nasty meds with horrible side effects. There I stayed until Sunday when they finally released me to strict bedrest at home. I was still 1.5 cm dialated on Sunday, so they think I might just be someone who contracts early but doesn't really progress. Our goal is to get to at least 36 weeks.

So bedrest is not as sweet as it sounds. Poor hubby has to do EVERYTHING, although he's always been good about cooking, laundry, cleaning, so he's handling it. It is quite an adjustment to try to keep up with my work, but luckily I can do a lot from home. My shower last Saturday had to be canceled, but the one scheduled for this Saturday is being moved to my house. It is now a "pajama party" in honor of my bed rest...should be cute I'm hoping.

Sorry for the novel. I hope everyone else is doing well. There is going to be a baby boom in here in no time!

It's looking like he'll be home 42wks+ as his lungs are still inflamed and trying to catch up, and his nutrition is still something that they're working on as well. The Drs initially said he be home somewhere in btwn 40-42wks, but after getting labs and xrays results yesterday they're now saying 42+wks. His protein levels are low, so they are supplementing some of his feedings with a high protein high calorie similac. So, they alternate his feedings btwn the similac and my breast-milk every three hours. Also, due to nutrition problems, he has some edema. As soon as his levels get to where they need to be, the edema will leave. In the meantime, they're giving him diuretics to pull off the fluid. His lungs are taking some time because he had pnuemonia at one point. They've tried him on CPAP twice, but he wasn't quite ready and had to be intubated again both times. But, as I said before he's stable, and is doing well for the most part!! Of course I have a multitude of pictures. Everyone says that he looks like his dad...I think some days that he looks like me...
