Any funny story to share about being preggo with this baby (so far)? Yesterday my hubby and family waited for my appt to end out in the car after my u/s. Silly hubby turned the car on without starting to put the windows down and then left the battery run. When he finally thought about it, guess who's car was dead! (it has a bad battery) LMAO The baby wouldn't show us the goods, then I come out to a dead car. Talk about the start to a hilarious birthday. I laughed until I hurt yesterday.

What are you most looking forward to in August? I get to have another u/s to check on his growth since he was measuring small at his 20 week u/s. I am not really worried about it since he is only measuring 5 days behind his due date so I plan on enjoying the extra u/s and seeing my baby again.
