TPBM...

The Person Below Me

We play this game on my other BB all the time and it generally gets a lot of response.. let's try it!

How it works: Write something about the person below you then the person responds with an answer (yes, no, whatever) and then writes another TPBM.

I'll start

TPBM drank a lot of coffee pre-pregnancy.

No, my husband drinks plenty for me. Wink I'm more of a latte drinker but only occasionally.

TPBM did not plan this pregnancy.

Yes. This was a surprise pregnancy. We're happy to add to our family though!

TPBM has a serious cheesecake craving today!

Yes...I was going to leave it a surprise....but then at my 13 week ultrasound the tech said she thought it looked like a girl...and now I HAVE to find out!!!
TPBM is planning a natural birth (vaginal without epidural or pain meds or induction)

Me, me, me-- since my first four were natural and we're planning our third home birth. I'm a natural birth junkie. Smile

The person below me needs a nap.

Ha! No way- my husband and I are afraid to even talk about names after the nasty brawls over picking our daughter's name. Once we find out our baby's sex we may start name talking Smile

TPBM has a crazy sex drive!!!

Not so much crazy, but, definitely stronger than usual!

TPBM can't wait to shop for this baby!

Yup! I buy something (usually a big item) each payday that way I am not scrounging around at the last minute!

TPBM has cravings of pickles!

no not really. I guess if I were to pick a craving Id say its sweet things...but Im not really craving things...Im just really hungry all the time!
TPBM is really hoping to have a boy!

I always say either is fine (and it is!) but I had a dream we found out it was a girl and I was really disappointed... guess I am hoping for a boy!

TPBM is planning a party for someone soon.

Not anymore! I just threw a baby shower and an 8yr old slumber bday party. Now, just waiting on someone to throw me one! Smile

TPBM is thinking about banking the cord blood.

Ah if there was somewhere to donate it, I totally would.. but I know we can't afford to just pay for it out of pocket.

possibly, it is not on the agenda, but its only 5:30 am and I have not checked the weather forecast yet...so its definitely a possibility.
TPBM is done after this baby is born in June.

Oh, I don't think so! I think I am the sort of person who will stop having babies after 1 or 2 more, mostly for financial reasons, but, I think there will ALWAYS be a little part of me that will want another baby, and will deeply mourn the end of my reproductive days.

TPBM knows what's for dinner tonight. (sorry, I'm a good 12 hours ahead of most of you, and I just faced not knowing what to make for dinner... )

TPBM is hoping for another girl.

Normally yes, but right now I wish I could eat anything.. The stomach flu has ransacked our house. I've had a bagel and chicken broth since Wednesday. It sucks. The flu with a three and two year old is terrible.

Yes, I am wanting to drive 2.5 hours and pay out of pocket rather than wait until the 24th.

Yes. I would KILL for a margarita right now. But I would settle for a pepsi if we had some.

TPBM is in need of a vacation

always...but vacations are actually more work than reality...because I NEVER go without my kids...and I mean all 8 kids!
TPBM will go back to work shortly after the baby is born.

YES, sometimes just once a month if I can swing it, not a fan of grocery shopping! Then hit the store weekly for milk and fruit and stuff.

TPBM is working out/staying active during pregnancy.

usually yes, but my spotting keeps coming back since surgery if Im on my feet too much...I will keep trying to at least walk...but we all know how unnerving spotting is...even when you KNOW exactly what is causing it...so Im trying to be careful!!
TPBM is delivering their baby with a midwife.

TPBM finds themselves eating something during this pregnancy that they don't usually eat when not pregnant.

TPBM is getting a gender scan this week!

Joined: 07/27/06
Posts: 722

Yes...my anatomy scan is Thurs...Im a little worried though...they are supposed to be done b/t 18-20 weeks...Im going to a Peri for mine...the doctor scheduled the appointment and by lmp I will not be 18 weeks yet. By ultrasound Ill be 18 weeks 3 days....I know my doc did NOT change my due date in my chart...yet he scheduled my ultrasound a little early if you go by lmp. I just dont want to waste my time and money going to an appointment if its too early....plus with my anxiety...the fewer appointments...the better. Smile But Im sooo excited to maybe find out the gender this week...that I want to just go!! The doctor actually told me he and the perinatologist have had a discussion about my case...so they both have to be aware of the situation...I guess he is assuming the ultrasound is right...who knows....that was a long answer for a yes!! Smile
TPBM planned on June to be the month for their baby on purpose because its such a nice time of year to have a baby....weather wise and sickness wise.

(My doctor told me betwee 17-20 weeks, so hopefully you will be okay)

NO WAY did I plan for a June baby. I live in the desert. It's hot. By June we will be hitting 100 degree days (although, if it was like last summer, maybe high 90's by the time I have baby). I guess June is better than July or August though... no thanks to being hugely pregnant when it's that hot outside.

TPBM has been eating whatever they want, whenever they want.

Kind of I carly...not the other one...I try to not allow my kids to watch that stuff...mainly because its waayy too old for my littles...my older kids are old enough for it...Im just not a big fan of TV.
TPBM knows what music they will listen to during delivery.

Yep...I sure do...Kenny Chesney's album "Be As You Are"....I live in Northeast Ohio and that album will help me threw the crap winter...makes you smile just thinking of sunshine and palm trees very chill....lol

TPBM will watch American Idol this upcoming season? Sorry I am trying to be random lol

Joined: 07/27/06
Posts: 722

not really...we dont watch too much tv ...dont laugh but what we probably will watch is Dance Moms...the show is outrageous!! But my girls do competition dance...so I do find it amusing...if nothing else. I am NOT like the dance moms....although I guess there are some moms in our studio that are! Im pretty naive...because I dont have time for that kind of drama....I have too many kids to worry about silly drama with the other moms and dancers in our studio! Smile I did used to love American Idol though.....

Yes to both. Mainly contacts, which I wear 24/7, then for a while I'll give my eyes a rest and wear glasses for 4-5 days.

no!!!! I think it's wrong to have them up past new years. And to put them up before Thanksgiving!!

TPBM is freaking out about finances.

A little. My oldest starts high school which means I am just around the corner from college....9 kids going to college....we are already in the reality of braces and ipods and cell phones...but we still have college in front of us. If I pulled my girls from dance....we would be fine. Such a hard decision when the activity is their entire LIFE! They dance 20 hours a week...and all of their friends are there. THe baby will not add much at all...until he/she is ready for college...the rest hopefully we can deal with....hopefully.

OMG> I am having such a hard time. Worked my butt off this morning with some light manual labor and am taking a break. I still have 20 something monitors to take out of the box and assemble. So wish I could have slept in. Especially since I couldn't fall asleep last night. I bet this baby's middle name on the LSU/Alabama game and dh wants to use Rudy for a boy and Judy for a girl. Our last name rhymes with both. Anyway, not much sleep.

The person below me can't wait for their baby shower.

doubtful that there will be one...I had one for Madeline (my oldest dd) and then I didnt have another until Jacob...he is the last little guy I had...and it was more like a sprinkle...just a few girls from book club that made book club into a mini shower. It was really nice though,....it made me cry! Smile
TPBM watches the baby story or one born every minute...one of those reality birthing stories...

I love One Born Every Minute... I used to watch Baby Story when I was pregnant with DD, but I really like OBEM (too lazy to type it out again, lol!). I think it's on tonight... I had to set a timer on my TVGuide app so I wouldn't miss it cause I kept forgetting and we don't have DVR.

TPBM is suffering from heart burn and/or acid reflux.

I have recently had heartburn once or twice. But not ANYTHING like I had with DD. I really hope it continues this way! I could do without it!

TPBM wishes she could buy a new bed/mattress to get through this pregnancy. (

I just got a new one a few years ago when I was pregnant with DD, so I'm lucky enough not to need one yet!

Can't say that is true, at all. I like the Dixie Chicks, but I think they are the only band/artist that comes close to being classified country that I like.

TPBM has drunk enough water today/yesterday. (NOT me...I need to drink some!)
