I know we aren't a real chatty bunch yet, but anyone want to start a chat thread up?
How's everyone been feeling lately?

Starting to feel better. Morning sickness is now come and go instead of constant so I'll take it. still no weight gain. I'm tiny compared to this time last pregnancy. Where is everyone???
I know. I'm sad we don't have more chatty mamas yet. I will say, it took me a loooooong time to come back b/c I was feeling so rough. So maybe that's what happened to everyone?
That's so good your m/s is leaving you. Mine seems to be too! I'm so excited! 3 days of no puke feeling and very little nausea. We are the same exact due date so I guess that might be why.
On another topic, ugh this heat! I'm sure everyone will be complaining about it today. Here, it's supposed to be 98. We are going out shopping and then out for lunch to stay out of the heat as much as possible. I really wanted to go out swimming but I guess with a heat advisory, that nixes that.
What is everyone doing to stay cool?

I'm up for chatting.
I'm feeling okay. I thought I was feeling better, but then my m/s & fatigue seemed to come back in full force last week. I didn't start feeling better with DS until I was past 20 weeks so I am thinking it might be the same this time.
It is supposed to be 109 with the heat index here on Saturday and we are supposed to go to an outdoor wedding that evening. Hopefully, it will cool off a little bit otherwise we won't stay for too long. I get to take paddleboarding lessons Saturday morning with some girlfriends. I am really excited to try it! We live at the beach so it's like the "new thing" here that everyone is trying to learn. I ordered a new maternity bathing suit but I don't think it's going to get here before then so I guess I am going to look like a sausage in my bikini.
haha Claire! A sausage! You are too funny. Paddleboarding sounds so fun! Hope your lessons are a blast!
I have been feeling good since my last bout with M/S on Sunday. That makes 2 whole days of not feeling good so I guess I shouldn't complain. Hope it doesn't come back though!!
It's hot here too--and super dry so we have a lot of out of control wildfires. Luckily, nothing by our house but there is one big one by my aunt's house. Scary!
My m/s is good now that I started on diclectin. It was getting sooooo bad! I was puking all day and couldnt accomplish much, and was miserable at work. I hope to get off it soon. I know they say its safe and stuff but i hate taking drugs while pregnant.
It's been killer hot here too and humid. I need to get DS a new pool! One big enough for me too!
Our national holiday is July first here. I think we'll just have a nice supper/bbq, then watch the fireworks after DS goes to bed. We have neighbours a street over who always do a crazy firework show. Its nice to watch without leaving our backyard!
we got a 20 dollar pool that is big enough to sit in with little man and dh. temps here are triple digits and will stay like that throughout summer.
i had an ob appt today. hb sounded good. got resultsof nt scan. all looks normal. another six weeks till my gender scan...boo..
We're having a double birthday party for my DS and DD tomorrow. DS's birthday is June 1st and DD's is July 24th, we have a lot of family that come from out of town so it's easier to do it just at once.
I'm excited, but it's going to be in the 90's tomorrow and our backyard doesn't get a lot of shade, so hopefully we'll be able to pull it off well. I'm going to set up the kiddie pool and then fill it with water balloon's so the kids will have something cool to do.
Then for the 4th we're going to the parade in town, which DH and DS will be driving the fire truck in, and then going over to my in-law's for a family bbq and fireworks in the evening so that will be lot's of fun.
I can't wait for Friday because I'm having my ultrasound at 1:00 and we'll finally know what this baby is. My DH thinks it's a boy and I really think it's another girl, so we'll see. We're bringing the kids with us because we couldn't find a babysitter, so wish us luck!
Emily- How did the birthday party go? I hope it wasn't too hot!
I am so ready for this day to be over. I am happy to have the day off tomorrow. It is so hot and I am so tired. Yesterday I accidentally fell asleep when I got home from work from like 6:30-8:30pm! DS wasn't home last night because he spent the night out with his cousins so luckily I could have an evening to myself, but I spent it sleeping... Poor DH. I have been so moody and no fun to be around lately. I should probably try a little harder to be nice.
