Name/Age:Erin, 35
How far along are you?:15 weeks
Next doctor's appointment?:Big u/s on October 4th and OB appt some time around October 7th (have to call and schedule next week cause my dr didn't have her schedule done yet
How are you feeling?Really good! Minus some hip pain I don't really even feel pregnant!
Have you bought anything for the baby yet?Yep, bought a stroller and I LOVE it! probably won't be buying much else until after the baby shower
How are you coming on names?Well, about the only thing that is certain is Thomas as a middle name for a boy (after DH Dad that passed away 9 years ago). We do tentatively have our girls name as Madison Joy and boys name as Chase Thomas. I really like both names, I just haven't fully committed to them yet!
Anything else fun and exciting going on?:We bought a minivan! It pretty much was a necessity with the new baby coming. A teenager and 2 carseats definitely wouldn't have fit in the backseat of my VW Jetta! We LOVE it so far...don't know why we didn't buy one a long time ago!

Have you bought anything for the baby yet? I just bought a Mizzou sleeper for the baby yesterday. Nothing else yet! We will have to buy all new stuff though (except the crib) b/c we got rid of literally everything after we had Elliot. Oops!!
How are you coming on names? I think we finally have first names decided! Emerson (Emmy) for a girl and Marshall for a boy. Middle names are up in the air!
Anything else fun and exciting going on?: Car shopping! The mini-van will be officially outgrown when babe gets here Smile Good thing my husbands job has a sweet car allowance!

Have you bought anything for the baby yet?No,I was so worried about m/c at first, and now I'm going to wait till I find out boy/girl because I still have a lot of stuff from my boys
How are you coming on names?We have 2 girl names and no boy names. So once we find out boy/girl then we will settle on names.
Anything else fun and exciting going on?: Just can't wait till I find out boy/girl. Also my DS#2 will turn 4 on the 27th of this month so I have been party planning. Smile[/COLOR]

Next doctor's appt : Sep 19 to meet with midwife and consider transferring to her from my OB, Sep 21 my regularly-scheduled OB appt...maybe my last with her! I'm really thinking I'd prefer a midwife this time.
How are you feeling? Still throwing up 1-2 times per day, but that's actually a vast improvement compared to a couple weeks ago! Yesterday, the pelvic pain started...same type of pain I had with my first pregnancy (it's a shooting pain in my groin when I'm up walking around, and apparently nothing to worry about...it's like nerve pain from the weight of the uterus pressing on things).
Have you bought anything for the baby yet? Nope! We have all the basics, so I'm waiting to find out the gender before I buy any fun stuff, like clothes or nursery decorations.
How are you coming on names? Pretty sure it will be Oliver if a boy, but no clue on the middle name. I really like Clara Joy for a girl, but DH isn't convinced.
Anything else fun and exciting going on? I just got back in town after a four-day getaway with my best friends from college. DH wanted to fly his mom in to help him take care of DS1 while I was gone, but I told him that was ridiculous, and he could do it by himself. So, he did, and they both had a great time! I am so glad they had that father-son bonding time, and now DH will be more confident caring for him by himself, which is good, since that's going to become his responsibility more and more once this new little one arrives! Smile

How far along are you?: I'll be 15 weeks tomorrow!
Next doctor's appointment?: September 27th
How are you feeling? Just when I thought the morning sickness had passed, :puke2:. I'm still waiting to feel better without assistance from meds. I'm feeling a lot of fullness in my belly. At my last visit, the doctor said I'm measuring at 20 weeks, but the baby is normal size. Soooo, I may just be filling up with a lot of fluid again like I have with my past pregnancies, more so with the last.
Have you bought anything for the baby yet? My husband bought some super tiny Dodger booties that were on clearance at Target. He's a huge Dodger fan.
How are you coming on names? Thinking, but not too much. We want to wait to find out what it is first before we stress over the perfect name.
Anything else fun and exciting going on?: My son got an award last week in school for being a Super Reader! So proud. Smile
