May/Early June Mommas

As exciting as it is to finally be in 3rd tri, I am not ready for labor talk! Figured we could have a thread to pass the time with some friendly banter and get to know each other before we start labor watching together down the road.

Introduce yourselves and lets get chatting!

I'm 27+3 today, due may 17th with #1 and it's a BOY!

How are you all feeling? I can tell that I'm coming out of the "honeymoon" trimester... starting to feel heavy, tired, and generally uncomfortable much of the time. Heartburn is atrocious, I get it for hours after every single meal no matter how big or small. I had a peanut butter sandwich for lunch and 5 hours later, I'm still very full and acid-y. But despite all of that, I'm feeling so lucky to be here that I feel bad even complaining. Lol

No great idea. I'm 27 weeks today, due may 20th with baby number 4!!!! I'm not reach at all, about to start renovating for babies room, which means removed and replacement of wall, electrics, floor, damp proofing, plastering etc. needless to say it's probably not going to be done. We think this is a girl, our first if it is, both scans were not the best position so we really don't know, but both said they thought girl. So I have no clothes for her yet lol.

And a car, Eck, we have a 7 seater but given all mine are 4 or under it still tight with car seats and my eldest has ASD to lashes out so ideally need a new car (or mini bus lol)! But panicked where all the money will come from, but hey no it will all work out!

I'm having loads of BHs which are getting annoying, but other than that all is well. This baby is a wriggler, my most wriggly baby!

I'm due the day after you with my 3rd boy, sitting at the hospital having the glucose tolerance test it's awful lol
I'm not overly organised either but I've got the major bits and pieces.
I'm feeling ready lol my tummy feels like there's no more room left, bub gets the hiccups all the time. I'm talking 10 plus times a day and its frustrating lol I'm so tired yet too uncomfortable to sleep long at the night. I'm either waking from needing to pee or cause I'm in pain in my legs/hips/bump.
Loving the bigger moment though.
Should we all make predictions on when we will bub will come and size etc? I think that will be fun to look back on.
My prediction:
Due date May 18th, I think bub will come May 15th.
8pound ( I make big babies lol ) and 52cm long.

I agree – great thread idea!

I'm 28 w + 2 d. Due May 11 with my first child – a boy! I think it is adorable that my estimated due date is Mother's Day this year. I have a strong feeling that my little guy is going to make an appearance before his due date, though. He was measuring further along at the last ultrasound. For being a complete surprise, I'm having a pretty healthy pregnancy.

2nd trimester was far from a “honeymoon trimester for me. I had HORRIBLE morning sickness from about 6 ½ weeks until 25 ½ weeks. Now that I'm not throwing up my guts constantly things are looking much better. I've had some pretty icky Braxton Hicks but now that I'm getting used to them the initial 'shock' has worn off. Emotionally, the 1st and 2nd trimesters were horrible for me. Things are still tough but I'm trying to look at the bright sides of everything instead of feeding into the drama. So far the 3rd tri is a "honeymoon" for me. Haha.

I'm having the hardest time picking out a name for my little guy. I like a lot of names but nothing seems like the “perfect” name. It is annoying the father immensely but I might want to wait until I actually hold my son to see which of the names fit him best. I'm also in the process of trying to choose a hospital or birthing center to give birth at. I got such a bad vibe when I toured the hospital I was signed up to deliver at. I guess it is back to the drawing board!

I'm looking forward to a 3d/4d scan and maternity photos! I want to document my bump in a special way even if it is itty bitty! ...aren't baby wriggles the best?! Haha.

EDIT -- I see another post came in when I was typing this. Baby predictions sound great! For some reason the date "April 27" randomly popped into my head when I read that. So... I'll go April 27. 6lb 7oz. (the size is a total guess).

26+3 now, which according to my math is exactly the first day of third trimester! I'm still honeymooning, though I'm glaring at the spreading marks on my belly that appeared last week.

I'm a high risk, as I have Factor 5, translating as "clotting danger" due to a previous DVT. Belly shots of Fragmin every day for the past six months. Docs say they may want to induce me to control my levels, but we'll see...

First baby, it took 7 months to conceive and I'm so grateful that things have been going around so far. Team yellow, and so excited to find out what we're having on delivery day!

Active babe, lots of feet and elbows so far. To be an active child I'm sure.

Glad to be here with you all!

Great idea! I felt pretty overwhelmed coming over here and seeing all the labour talk!

Hi everyone, nice to 'meet' you!

I'm 27w 1d, due May 19th. After feeling really rough for the first trimester, I had a great second. I'm still feeling pretty good but baby is def getting heavier and sits very low so that can get uncomfortable. I'm also getting tired again already and have been napping everyday since Friday. I love being pregnant though, especially the wiggles!

Oh, and I'm team yellow. Gut instinct is a girl but only time will tell!

Thanks for joining me, ladies! I don't feel ready at all, but at the same time I just can't wait to meet our little man.

Misscalais - I'm glad I'm not the only one feeling like there is no more room in there already. I am actually nervous about how uncomfortable I'll be by the time I'm full term. My ribs hurt and baby is already several inches into my ribcage.

Anyone else getting painful kicks in the cervix? I love when baby is head down because I can deal with rib kicks but the bladder/cervix kicks are awful! Of course, I cherish every movement no matter how badly they make me wince.

Predictions sound fun! I'm going to go with May 7th, 8 lbs. I was a big baby and I have a feeling this guy will be big as well. Oh boy. Lol!

ETA: Karigan, when are they talking about inducing? Hoping things go smoothly for you!

Chickensoup: I've been getting tired again as well. I got through 2nd tri with a good bit of energy but the past week or so I've been just exhausted!

Hello all!
This is my first child and I am due may 12th so I am 28+1. I am having a girl. I did have an ectopic pregnancy before this one. I have been sick since 6 weeks so it's been rough and now have heartburn and it's getting harder to move around. Glad to be in the home stretch but not ready for labor yet! We are painting the nursery this weekend then we can start moving all the furniture in.

Exited to wait with you wonderful ladies!

I predict she will come on May 14th and 7lbs. Both my husband and I were around 6lbs.

Yay! How fun!

I am 28 weeks tomorrow! I am due May 14th but at my last scan they put the due date as the 9th. This is our very first after a year of trying and 4 IUI's. We are team yellow and I just can't wait to find out what this little baby will be.

I have had an extremely easy pregnancy so far. *knock on wood* I only had a little nausea, a little heartburn here and there and some sore hips. But even that has been getting better with regular yoga and strength training. I'm not exactly tall (5'6") but I'm not short either and have a long torso so I haven't felt like I'm bursting at the seams yet. I'm also carrying high so bending over hasn't been a problem yet either.

My prediction is a girl (for now... its keeps changing) and that I will start labor at night on May 10 and deliver on the 11th.
