I'm 32 weeks, so maybe I should join both threads! Haha!
I have to say I've been feeling pretty good. Sleeping fairly well, not too many aches and pains, still have a decent amount of energy - and it's a good thing too! I haven't done too much to get ready for baby at all.
We don't have a nursery, so the bubs is just going to be rooming with us. I'm supposed to go pick up a co-sleeper from a friend who lives about 45 minutes away, but I keep procrastinating. I think we'll need to get a new mattress for it, and I'm not sure if she's giving us sheets/mattress protectors/etc. I have been picking up clothes here and there - I'm honestly not too worried about those yet. I want to see how big this little guy is going to be. Having my shower next Saturday, and I'm kind of waiting until then to make too many purchases. Already have a stroller... supposed to be getting a car seat and a breast pump through our insurance program.
Sometimes I feel a little antsy, like I wish I already had everything set up and ready to go. But not too panicked about it. Ultimately, the baby just needs warmth, sustenance, sleep, and someone to clean its messes - and of course lots of love! I figure I can provide all that from day one. Still, gonna try to get a little more prepared in the next few weeks!
I can't really say I've had a strong nesting urge. I mean, I think about the things I need to do pretty often, and have been managing to get some of them done - clearing spaces out and cleaning, reorganizing. But I'm not, like, down on my hands and knees, scrubbing the baseboards, or painting the ceiling or anything. I wonder if it will hit me at some point, and I'll just be frantically trying to overhaul the entire house in a week?!
Anyway, thanks for letting me peek in here. Hope you are all having a nice day!

I'll join in girls I'll be 30 weeks on Thursday! Had my 4d scan last week and my princess is perfect, can't wait to meet her. I'm starting to feel more tired now and am working full time, can't get comfy in bed and suffering from heartburn! I'm finishing work 22nd march and due 2nd of may, only finishing then as got annual leave to use up.
We've made a start on the nursery but hospital bags are not packed!

Not long to go now girls...the final countdown!

Hi ladies

I'd like to join too if that's ok - I'll be 30 weeks this Thursday and waiting for my first (team blue).

Sarah, I feel guilty now as I've been on mat leave since 4 Feb and I'm not due until 29 April! I just wanted some time for myself and was so tired working (50 hour weeks in a stressful job etc). I'm so pleased to be finished for a while!

I know that I shouldn't feel guilty, I've had a few complications throughout my pregnancy (spotting) and it's always connected to work. I should enjoy having a month to myself but I'm such a bloody workaholic that I have a hard time taking that step back.

On a more positive note, anyone else cloth diapering?

I'll join in! I need this for the final weeks I think my hubby and mother are tired of me constantly talking about baby and how many weeks I have left lol. I'm 31 +2 tomorrow! Feel pretty great besides being tired halfway through the day. But I do have an almost 4 year old so that explains it.

I'll join in as well, if it is okay.

I am 31+1 as of today, and due to medical reasons my little girl has been scheduled for induction for April 16th. Other than severe back and hip pain I am doing alright at the moment and am looking forward to spending the last few weeks with you all. Not long left!!
