EDD: 12-26

How far along are you? 17 weeks 1 day

How are you feeling? Really good. Energy is coming back finally so I don't feel so tired all the time. Only pregnancy symptom at this point is constipation.

When is your next appt...what is it for? July 25th for or BIG U/S!

How are you finding sleep these days? A little difficult actually. I was hoping this wouldn't happen until later.

What's the best news you have heard this week? I really haven't gotten any good news this week.

The worst news this week? Worst thing that happened was our ceiling collapsing last week. Making sure the leak is fixed so we can then fix our ceiling.

Are you having cravings? Nope, not yet.

Have you started on the baby's room? The baby will be in our room at first so we aren't doing a baby room this time around.

EDD: 12/5

How far along are you? 20 w 1 d

How are you feeling? Feeling pretty good! I do get tired easily and I'm hungry all the time but I have much much less symptoms with this baby than with my DS.

Weight gain/loss? I haven't been weighed since 6/22 but I have an appt tomorrow and I'm guessing about 10 lbs. That is pretty normal for this stage I hear so that is reassuring.

When is your next appt...what is it for? Tomorrow... just a monthly check-in with the midwife.

How are you finding sleep these days? I wake up 1-2 times a night typically to pee and eat or take care of DS... although he doesn't wake up at night all the time, just every so often. He had a nightmare last night Sad

What's the best news you have heard this week? That I have a HEALTHY baby girl in there! Smile

The worst news this week? Not really "worst news" but I'm getting sad that school supplies are coming out at the stores! That means summer is almost over!

Are you having cravings? Oh yea... my typical. Green chile, pickles and tomatoes. I really crave carbs too... and COFFEE!

Have you started on the baby's room? It's a disaster in there! But I just know in a couple of months I won't have the energy to work much on it, so after my DS's birthday party this weekend, I plan to get really serious. Got a new dresser for the baby though, so we just need to paint and start putting stuff away! And I guess I need to start buying girls' clothes! Smile

When is your next appt...what is it for? This Friday, the 22nd. Routine midwife visit.

How are you finding sleep these days? Not too bad. Although I tend to wake up at 5 am-ish and can't get back to sleep. :confused:

What's the best news you have heard this week?

http://www.cbc.ca/news/world/story/2011/07/12/china-coma-toddler-awakes.html

The worst news this week? Fortunately, I can't think of anything off hand. So I guess that's a good thing.

Are you having cravings? Not really. Occasionally the odd random thing.

Have you started on the baby's room? Um, no. It's currently DS' room and we are going to have to move him into his sister's room before we can prepare the baby's room. Probably will work on that around September.

How are you feeling? pretty good

Weight gain/loss? As of my last appointment up 3 lbs

When is your next appt...what is it for? Next Wednesday - the big u/s! Day after that is my regular OB appt.

How are you finding sleep these days? Easily!

What's the best news you have heard this week? Um. Our son won the coloring contest at the circus that we went to over the weekend! That was fun!

The worst news this week? none?

Are you having cravings? Pretty much anything I see. lol I saw bacon on tv and I've been craving that for days! I'm not a bacon person but might have to buy some.

Have you started on the baby's room? Yes. We had to move our son out of the nursery so the baby can take that room. Did that, finally! The nursery is totally empty (besides the dresser and changing table, and a few things I've bought in the closet) and I've wiped everything down (dusted, washed window, etc). I'm trying to decide if I want to paint the walls, but otherwise will probably use everything from before since it's all neutral. Hoping to kick our son out of his crib sometime in the near future so the crib can go back in there.

I am so sorry Shelia. It is always so hard to lose a pet, buddy & friend.
Just know that he will be done w/ pain once he is gone. And that you gave him a wonderful life & a lot of love.

Oh Sheila, I'm so sorry to hear about your beloved pet. Animals truly are some of the most special members of the family and it is so hard to think of losing them. Sad take care.
