    Any big plans for anyone today? We are taking the kids to a pumpkin patch. I'm looking forward to a fun day with the kids! It's a bit chilly out, so we'll all be bundled up, but it should be a good time!

    I'm sure abuse/neglect cases are WHY the GP rights law was established. But it's very, very often abused as a control method by grandparents who are just pissed that they got cut off for reasons they deem ridiculous. Go check out the Dealing With the Inlaws board on BBC, it's full of crazy stories of grandparents just like that.

    We're going to my MILs for my SIL's birthday today. It'll be nice to just get out of the house. But Jason and I had a massive argument this morning and now I'm in a weird mood and don't really feel like going. I have to though, Brandon is so excited to see "Ganma".

    The pumpkin patch sounds fun Holly, I hope you stay warm and have an awesome time.

    Taylor - I totally believe there are whack jobs for Gparents out there that totally abuse the GP laws, sad stuff. I"m sorry about the argument and the mood. I hope the party lets you get out of your funk and helps things cool down so you won't have an awkward evening.

    We aren't doing much today. Once I (hopefully) get DD down for a nap in a little bit, I plan to try and get some writing done, clean out my car and maybe work on my office which is always a mess while DH mows the lawn. I did good with groceries this week but it took way longer then I wanted it to.

    I start an 11 day stretch of working starting tomorrow. The weekends will be especially busy. Hopefully all will go well. In the middle of it I have 2 doc appts.. should be an ultrasound in in 8 days or so to see how my cervix is holding up with the twins pregnancy. I am definitely relieved as they start to get bigger and enter a more viable stage. I was really nervous around 22 weeks about preterm labor. As they get bigger those worries are starting to go away which is nice.

    Headed over to my in-laws for dinner tonight. It is really nice going over there, because they are so good with DS and it is pretty laid back. Before we had kids I would get bored out of my skull going there, but things change. Now, I am happy for a few bored out of my skull moments.

    We had a great time although it was a bit chilly. Lauryn refused to pick out a big pumpkin though. She wanted a "little" one, so I grabbed one for her. I know she'd be heartbroken when the time came to carve them if she didn't have one.

    Tiffany, hopefully the next 11 days will go smoothly! And hopefully your cervix is holding up well.

    My 4D u/s is on Wednesday and I'm so excited! I cannot wait to see this LO again. Our gender reveal party is this weekend, so that should be a lot of fun too!

    Holly--the pumpkin patch sounds like fun! DS got to go to a pumpkin patch for a field trip and pick out a small pumpkin to bring home...he was a bit bummed that he didn't get to choose a big one. Oh well! I can't wait to see pics from your u/s!

    Taylor--How was the party?

    We had a busy weekend here. I spent all day Saturday cleaning...or most of it. We went thru all of Jenna's clothes and put some in boxes and put the others away in an orderly fashion. She had too many to take care of (for her) and I was tired of the mess. Yesterday we went and hung out with DHs family. It was nice and relaxing.
    I haven't been feeling very well in the mornings lately. My tummy feels yucky and the heartburn kicks in a few hours after I get up. This is going to get old in a hurry! Hopefully my tummy at least feels better soon!

    Taylor - I hope you had a good time at the party and that your week is off to a good start.

    Lisa - I hope you get some relief from the stomach ache and heartburn soon.

    Tasha - I think all of us are getting tired easily at this point. I swear the last stretch of pregnancy (and all it's annoying symptoms) creep up on you so quickly!

    Last night DH and I were talking about how freaking close we are to having this baby. It hit home yesterday when I realized my appointments should be going to bi-weekly at this point. The last trimester goes so quickly and we haven't had the cash to stock up on things as early as we'd have liked. DH was getting worried about it but I was reassuring him that there isn't that much we need for him right away, and that I should be able to get some good deals at the consignment event on Saturday. Hoping my appointment today goes smoothly though I don't see why it wouldn't. Poor DH and DD both have a cold so no one's sleeping but I oddly feel rested.

    Mia, hope your appointment goes well today! I can't believe you're nearly 28 weeks already!?! Time is definately flying, and you're right. Once those bi-weekly appointments start the last tri goes so fast.

    Lisa, I hope you feel better soon. The HB has started here too. I forgot how uncomfortable it is. We're getting close to the home stretch, so there's relief in sight soon!

    We've bought a few things. We finally bought a pack of bottles, a box of nb diapers, a pacifer, and a couple of outfits. I have a tote full of yellow outfits and jammies, so baby can use those for the first few months. It'll be cold, so really sleepers work well anyway. The only big thing we still need is a stroller, and we're working on saving for that right now. I'm also contemplating buying a few cans of formula to have on hand. I just worry that LO will have a sensitive stomach and the formula will go to waste. Normally at this point I'm freaking out about getting a nursery done and everything, and this time around I'm so laid back about it. We know the baby will be in our room for the first 4-6 months, and we're not sure which room to put LO in yet when s/he moves, so I'm in no rush. I've found a cute bedding set, but if we don't get it, I won't be bummed. I know that the first year all they use from the set is the sheet anyway. I dunno....I just feel more laidback this time around, like we'll get things together as we need them. I've got the necessities lined up, so we're good for that. The rest will fall into place. If you ask me again in a few more weeks, I may be freaking out a bit

    This!!! I am just like you. Last time I think we had the nursery all ready by this point. As of right now, I haven't done a darn thing to prep for this baby. We have all the necessary stuff already from DD, and all of our newborn clothes are gender neutral already because last time we didn't know the sex either. The only thing I have bought for this baby is a snowsuit because the infant one we had was size 9 month (DD was a June baby so she was 6 months old before we had to use it) and even that I just bought today. We just had a new carters/oshgosh store open in my city last week and today was the first day I ventured out. OMG I think if I have another girl I am serisouly going to be broke. Their girls clothes are just adorable! The only reason I went shopping was because I had a appt. with my OB this a.m. and the store is right by her office so I took advantage of being able to "be free from bedrest for an hour" hehe...don't tell my DH! Anyway I go for another u/s this afternoon to check on the placenta abruption and to check my cervix again. She said depending on what the u/s shows I might be able to go off bedrest, thank goodness! (crossess fingers) I'll keep you all posted as to what the u/s says.
