I am seeing my gynae this Thursday.
Baby has been extremely active recently, sleep is disturbed by his frequent movements. Daughter has also been very clingy, I guess carrying her has also contributed to my backache and tummy pain...
Counting down to my maternity leave on 12 Sept! So so tired
Are you going for natural birth or c sect?
I think it all depends on how comfortable are you feeling. For myself, I am drained from lack of proper rest, taking care of daughter, work and so on... To prepare myself for child birth I give myself almost 3 weeks rest (since 37 weeks onward is considered full term). Secondly, I also intend to start preparing my coming baby's stuffs during my maternity leave. Like cleaning the cot, washing and packing the clothes, last minute shopping etc. It kinda make me happy doing those hehehe....
I also intend to take 16 weeks straight cause I want to focus on breastfeeding. If I start my maternity on 12 Sept, by date I should return to work on 1 Jan 2011 but 1 Jan is a public holiday while 2 Jan is a replacement holiday so I am only going back on the 3 Jan =P
My baby also active especially after meal and there is music on, my EDD is 29 Oct. I'm still thinking how to plan my maternity leave. am thinking taking 1 week before i start my maternity leave on 24 Oct.

1 week is good if you feel comfortable enough.
I have a strong feelings that I shall also give birth earlier this time since my daughter is born 8 days before my previous EDD.
Just make sure you have sufficient rest, you will need those energy to push lolz
I've gotten most of my baby stuff cuz 50% of them are from my cousin. Just need to get a few more things, wash the clothes and clean the items, setting up the nursery area n clear the mess in the room. I get a nice feeling from it too guess it's a nesting instinct..
I'm also taking 16 weeks straight so that I can spend more time with my baby. Am also going on full breastfeeding was thinking of taking at least 2 weeks before as I have this feeling she might come out earlier
Heard my friends mentioned that baby gals will be earlier than EDD date whereas for baby boy will be delayed by at least 1 to 2 weeks.. dont know how true it is thou..

This is one very useful website for breastfeeding mom.
Where will you be delivering? All hospitals should have a lactation consultant whom you can request to see during your stay. They will teach and guide you if you are first time mom
I have lost my body image totally. Was tempted to get a maternity photoshoot but now I think I can give up that idea.
Looking at myself in the mirror is depressing enough!
I am seeing my gynae tomorrow... wondering how much more weight have I put on >.<"
My colleague who's EDD on 6 September was admitted to the hospital this morning... just pray that both baby and her are in good condition...
