    Just had my 38 week appointment this morning and an ultrasound before that. Everything looks good, baby is growing well, lots of fluid still. My weight right now is 229, about 2lbs heavier than when I delivered Kenton, but oh well, still way under the total gain I had with Kenton! Doc was asking how I'm doing, wondering if I'm getting fed up with being pregnant! She goes "Still willing to let it happen naturally?" I was kinda shocked, but I guess lots of women get tired of being tired and achy and just want a date to be done. I told her right now, I'm still good, don't feel the need to force things.

    So she did a check and I'm almost 4cm! She stripped my membranes a bit, so maybe we'll see some action soon. Then she asked me to make an appointment for next week, but I got the feeling she doesn't think I'll be needing it!

    Getting excited here, but also anxious. I can't believe we'll have two little ones in the house soon, and with Kenton and his energy, I won't be able to rest like I did with Kenton. I think it'll be a good thing in a way, but it's also quite possible the Lupus will flare after the birth and I get arthritis pretty bad when that happens. I remember with Kenton I was having troubles with some of his outfits, those stupid snaps were hard to get together when your hands are all achy. At least I don't have to climb stairs to go to his room or even the bathroom this time! DH is going to take a couple of days off of work after baby arrives, I'm going to try to convince him if it's on the weekend, to still take off the next two days as well. But that should give me some time to recover a bit before being left to my own devices!

    Well, thats pretty much it for now!

    Default Growth spurt

    My belly's had a growth spurt! I'm hoping that means the baby's had one, not just my stomach I weighed myself this morning for the first time in about 3 weeks and I've gained 6 lbs! Before that I've only gained 3 lbs the whole pregnancy. Which brings me to a grand total of 9 lbs.

    Over the past week I've noticed my stomach's gotten bigger. I need to either push my seat back in the car or adjust the tilt of the steering wheel. When I lay down at night my stomach feels lower against my legs. In fact, I've thought a few times lately that Ethan was cuddling my upper thigh only to realize it's my other baby LOL

    I'm not growing anywhere else. If anything my new bra has gotten a bit bigger on me... So I really don't think I'm gaining fat, but the baby is! Also I've felt less movement the past week, and babies out of utero sleep more during a growth spurt so that would make sense too. And for the past week if I don't eat every few hours, I get really weak and shaky. I've just felt like my body has needed the extra food. Which would also be consistent with a growth spurt...

    Still hoping to be able to get my 3D ultrasound. And SOON! I wanna know what this baby is!!! S/he needs a name!

    Well I figure I better come here and update.... I'm close to ovulating (within the next week or so, most likely) and I'm not sure if I want to get pregnant this cycle. I would LOVE to but I really want to spend my b-day out with my mom (it's my 21st) and I know how special it would be for her (<-- sounds immature but I'll be 21). And I mentioned it to my mom and she wont really like it if I get pregnant anytime until next year So if I do get pregnant this year it's safe to say she won't really be happy.

    Well after looking at my temps if I have another high one tomorrow it will show crosshairs and that I Oed a couple days ago so now I'm in the waiting game. We BD before and after the "O" day it would say but I'm not stressing or "hoping" for a BFP this cycle. I've decided that if it happens great, if not, no biggie

    So I said I wouldn't obsess.... but now I'm starting too (AF is expected to show on Friday)..... I think I'm obsessing more than I expected (but not as much as last cycle) because DH is pushing it. I've had really bad heartburn the past 3-4 days at night and he kept saying "maybe you are pregnant," then my bbs have gotten a bit bigger (sorry tmi) so he mentions that too. ?? I was stupid and took a test today (I'm only 10dpo) and it was a snow white negative (Dollar Tree) I was going to wait until Wed (at 12 dpo) but of course it was calling my name. Anyways, my temps are still high but like with Callie I didn't get any symptoms besides a late AF so it's not like I could get m/s and know for sure...... oh, and I'm ALWAYS hungry, but that could just be me
