Below is a list of participants. If I missed you or you're new, tell me your EDD in your post below and I'll add you to the list.
I know participation has slowed down in this thread. My due date is rapidly approaching so looking to pass this along when I bow out. Congrats to everyone in advance if I do not log in for a while postpartum

How far along are you? 38w2d How are you feeling (emotionally/physically)? Getting close! My back pain is back to a manageable level, which is great. Emotionally I am more anxious/weepy than I remember with the last two pregnancies. I am worried about not realizing I am in labor/not knowing what to do. Other updates? Thoughts, vents, baby preparations, etc.? We need to put the bucket seat base in the car and move a couple carseats, but otherwise I think we are "ready" for the baby. Still need to lock down plans for the big kids in the fall (new preschool) and double check with HR about my leave. Upcoming milestones or appointments? Regular check this afternoon. This will be my last appointment with my OB before he takes leave for spinal surgery. I'll be seeing someone else from the office for the last couple appointments. QOTW: What is your favorite spring holiday/event? How do you plan to celebrate? Looking forward to celebrating Easter with my family this year. It will be nice and relaxing, which is what I need a few days before my due date. My boys are also excited because they know it is getting closer to "parade season" - they love parades.
That's so exciting that you're so close, greenmonkey1! How far along are you? Week/Fruit/Whatever: 30 weeks +4, large cabbage
How are you feeling (emotionally/physically)? Pretty good, though I'm starting to slow down a bit and have a harder time moving around. Up until now I haven't felt like my giant belly has really impacted me. Yesterday was a day trip with flights and a presentation and then home with the kids in the evening, and that normally wears me out, but the exhaustion is a lot worse now. Two more air travel trips and one driving trip until I'm finished with travel for awhile, and I'm counting down.
Other updates? Thoughts, vents, baby preparations, etc.? Got some cute bins for the shelves in our temporary baby room, so that looks a lot more organized, and bought a new infant seat since our old one will expire while this baby still needs it.
Upcoming milestones or appointments? Had a growth scan Monday. We hadn't had an ultrasound in months so it was really fun to see the baby and confirm that things are on track. Baby is measuring average size. My two others were measuring huge, so that was a surprise.
QOTW: What is your favorite spring holiday/event? How do you plan to celebrate? We have lots of family events in May - both DH's and my birthdays, and our anniversary. My birthday and our anniversary are always right around Memorial Day, so that's fun. This year I could have a baby around that time!
