Hang in there, momma! :) I know what you mean about all baby's movements feeling uncomfortable now...it almost hurts when she moves now.
What a good idea to start this thread. I agree, the board has kind of died.
My update for today....
The bad news: I'm feeling a bit down. I had an appointment yesterday and was told by my doctor (whom I LOVE) that she has to undergo surgery the beginning of October and won't be back in to work until November. I was fine in the appointment until she gave me a hug, and then I just broke down crying. I know the chances of her actually delivering our baby wasn't a 100% thing (unless I was induced and it was scheduled that way...), but just knowing now that there is a 0% chance of having her there makes me a little sad. Especially considering I've never met any of the other doctors. I'm going to start seeing a different one in 2 weeks, and then start going weekly after that. Just a little bummed out. I don't know what her surgery is, but I hope it goes well. She is such an awesome lady!
Good news: I'm proud of my weight gain thus far. I had one bad week (over labor day and our anniversary), but overall I've gained 25 lbs. (I'm 35 wks). I've been doing some brisk walking on our treadmill 4x a week for 30-45 min. and my DH and I have been taking walks outside in the evenings on occasion and it's been helping me feel good and keep the weight gain at a good level. I have my last baby shower tomorrow -- so excited! Can't wait to see my cousins that I haven't seen in so long and of course get all that great baby gear!
I'm definitely ready for her to be here....just want her to wait until she's 37 weeks though. I am freaking out that we don't have a car seat yet. I've been holding off because my DH said his work is giving us a $250 gift card to BRU and he thinks his man "shower" (lol) will be this Friday or next Friday. Praying it's this Friday because I want to go use the 10% off the remaining items on my registry and the gift card. If she comes before we have the car seat, my parents said they'd go pick it up for us. Anyway, it's so close for us all! :)
Good luck ladies!
