How are you feeling? Good overall. Just missing my energy and having a hard time with what my body can't do anymore. I also am trying to be better about resting when I can to avoid more ptl scares.
Any LOs/Fur babies at home? How are they doing? DD is testing limits and having a hard time with naps/bedtime but other then that she's fantastic and such a joy to be around.
Any recent or upcoming appointments? H17 shot this week, monthly mw appointment next week, complete with GD screening, and I likely won't have a baby sitter so that will be interesting!
Baby Name(s)? John Anthony
Baby buys? Have you done anything to start preparing for baby's arrival? Last thing I bought was some sleepers and outfits about a month ago. I have been looking at some things in consignment stores. Need to find a way to save for bigger ticket things.
Anything else you'd like to share?I cannot believe how fast time is going by or that I only have ONE more week left in the second trimester! How does this go so fast?
Recent picture? Will add one Thursday. Biggrin

How are you feeling? Sooo tired of being on bedrest. But other then that, feeling pretty good. Haven't had any further bleeding/cramping.
Any LOs/Fur babies at home? How are they doing? DD is really having a hard time with mommy being on bedrest and not being able to pick her up or bath her etc. She is really trying DH's patience.
Any recent or upcoming appointments? Have an appt with my OB in the a.m. on the 9th and then another u/s with the maternal/fetal specialist that afternoon. Fingers crossed that I can go off bedrest then!
Baby Name(s)? ugh.. we are no further ahead on this. DH and I still disagree on names.
Baby buys? Have you done anything to start preparing for baby's arrival? I feel bad because I have done NOTHING. I have paint chips here to pick a color for the nursery, but we still haven't chosen one.
Anything else you'd like to share? I have a million things that I need to get done to prep for baby and I can't do any of it! It's so frustrating!
Recent picture? I need to take one soon.
