How many weeks? I am 19 weeks as of today!

Boy, girl, don't know? We are choosing not to find out.

Baby names that you want to share? We're not spilling the very special one but as far as for the other babies we haven't agreed on one...

How's it going? BP? It's scary..but going....no news is good news, sort of right?

What's one (yeah, only one!) thing you want to do before the baby arrives? Complete the nursery and stay out of the hospital!! LOL.

O.K. I'll be the newbie on here!


How many weeks? 8 + 3 (but whose counting so early right :p)

Boy, girl, don't know? Way too early to tell, gut instinct girl. We are not planning on finding out....but we go back and forth. My plan is to have the u/s tech write it in an envelope at the 18 week scan. Then for New Years I am going to bring the envelope to the baker and get a cake made with "happy new year - happy new...." and have the inside frosting be either pink or blue. If everything goes well this pregnancy I will be 24 weeks on New years eve and I think that would be a nice way for the hubby and I to find out :)

Baby names that you want to share? nope

How's it going? BP? :sheepish: I haven't checked my BP at all! I see the MFM wed and I am going to let him worry about it. I need a new machine too. Def. a scare with a subchorionic hematoma that seems to be getting better :fingers crossed:

What's one (yeah, only one!) thing you want to do before the baby arrives? take some time and try and enjoy being pregnant

How many weeks? 33 weeks, 3 days

Boy, girl, don't know? It will be a surprise!

Baby names that you want to share? Layne Thomas for a boy, Ava Magdalena for a girl.

How's it going? BP? Not too great but hanging in there. BPs around 130-140/85. Had a trace protein reading last week (last 24 h urine was 250). Baby does quite well on the NSTs but is only in the 25th percentile for growth. Waiting and praying for the best...

What's one (yeah, only one!) thing you want to do before the baby arrives? Finish up some last minute projects and cleaning.

How many weeks? 32 weeks today

Boy, girl, don't know? Boy #3

Baby names that you want to share? Undecided

How's it going? BP? Kidney stone surgery at 30 weeks which means that I have to have another surgery at 36 weeks. We are hoping for lung maturity at that time so they can get the stint, stone and baby out at the same time. But if lungs aren't mature then we will have to have at least two more surgeries....Maybe three.

What's one (yeah, only one!) thing you want to do before the baby arrives? Get this kidney stone out!!

How's it going? BP? Admitted to the hospital overnight 2 weeks ago, BP good at home and bad at the doc's office, trace protein.

How many weeks? 29

Boy, girl, don't know? A very well documnted little boy

Baby names that you want to share? Robert Jonathon (family name)

How's it going? BP? Good! I had one little scare this week where my blood pressure shot up (while camping in a different state, I should add) to 127/85. Luckily, it has gone back down to its "norm" at 101/61. I'm hoping it was just the stress of camping, etc. etc. and not the beginning of labile readings.

What's one (yeah, only one!) thing you want to do before the baby arrives? Buy a car seat. And somewhere for him to sleep.
