Girl

Daphne

Sleepy

Pizza. All. The. TIME

Not really.

Something good:
Blood pressure is holding nicely.

Something not so good:
I feel like my pelvic organs are trying to fall out.

Do you have a shower planned yet and if so when:
No. We have a "1 shower per mama" policy in our family. Anything above that is considered rude. Don't know why, but they will only have/invite people to ONE shower for you. I guess my friends could have one for me, but I don't expect it.

Last baby purchase:
2 onsies on clearance. I hate buying things full price and I guess I am terrified we will see a penis on the big anatomy scan coming up in October.

Anything else you would like to add:
No, not really.

Age: 26

SO/DH: Jeff

How far along: 20 Weeks tomorrow already!

Boy/Girl/Surprise: Surprise Smile

Do you have a name picked: HA! We haven't even begun. And somehow we don't really want any of the leftover names from our options for DS

Any other children: Ronan, 8 months

How are you feeling: Great really. Tired sometimes, but work and school and an 8 month old will do that to you. Oh yeah, and being pregnant will I guess too Wink

Can you feel LO yet: Oh yes- I love having this posterior placenta- with DS it was anterior and even though I felt him starting at 18 weeks, it was rarely strong movements

Cravings: Milk and chocolate

Aversions: Certain mushy textures

Something good: Time is flying by this pregnancy- good for not dwelling on worries too much

Something not so good: Time is flying by this pregnancy- it may be our last, so I'm not in a huge rush for it to be over!

Do you have a shower planned yet and if so when: Even though I had one last Halloween we may get a sprinkle as some friends and my sisters have already brought it up

Last baby purchase: For JUST the newbie? Some girl clothes I couldn't pass up JUST IN CASE!

Anything else you would like to add: Right when we told my older sister about the new baby this past weekend she started bugging us about finding out the gender! Maybe it's good that we waited to tell her- so we avoided those extra weeks of being pressured!

EVERYONE in dh's family is hoping this is a girl and honestly, we want another boy. i mean we'll be fine with a girl, healthy is the goal. I am kinda worried that if this is a boy we'll get a blah-eh/disappointed reaction from his family. my bff however responded to my text about the u/s with a 'I am so, so excited for you, either way, this is awesome!" and i made me feel good :)!

Age: 35

SO/DH: Chris

How far along: 17 weeks 4 days

Boy/Girl/Surprise: No clue yet.

Do you have a name picked: We have a girl's name, but lately DH is not sure if we will still use the name. Nothing chosen yet for a boy.

Any other children: Yes, we have 8 children and the one on the way Smile

How are you feeling: Exhausted...and lonely. I moved to a state where we have no one. I can't even find a good provider here Sad

Can you feel LO yet: [COLOR=Magenta] Yes, I have felt LO for a while now.[/COLOR]

Cravings: None really...except chocolate milk. I don't drink milk at all...but for now, chocolate milk it is.

Aversions: Some days I can't stand anything,lol.

Something good: [COLOR=Magenta] Our baby is moving and growing, with a wonderful heart rate Smile[/COLOR]

Something not so good: Not being able to find a good birth provider here. One who is willing to take on a VBA4C. I have not had a check up since 6 weeks beyond the two ER visits and u/s they did. My appointment with a doc yesterday in Tulsa went down hill. He is sure I can find someone who will take me on with my history for VBA4C....although try as he did, he couldn't think of a single doctor anywhere Sad

Do you have a shower planned yet and if so when: No shower. We have children already, so I guess a shower is not happening for us. I can't blame anyone for that. Besides, we have no one here or even close for any kind of support, much less a shower Wink Though I do love to see when others have showers...and pics of their loot,lol!

Last baby purchase:

Anything else you would like to add: [COLOR=Magenta] Nothing I can think of except I'm now an emotional wreck lately. Too much stress and being pregnant with all the hormones roaming around. Lol.[/COLOR]
