OK...

I don't have any pics, though.

I'm about 23 weeks pregnant. I'm doing pretty well, but my sciatic nerve pain has been horrible lately. My next MW appointment is next Friday May 11.

I'm not the exciting one to follow though because I haven't had, nor am I planning any u/s! I'm planning (as in the past) a home birth in theh ot tub (in the backyard). The difference is that this year the back yard may look significantly different than in the past. We're in the process of tearing out the back deck and replacing it with raised garden beds (for veggies), a patio and mulch.

I'm also organizing planting a windrow, and adding some hills and natural playscape to the Reed Memorial Playground at the local music festival, and taking a Permaculture Design Course, as well as other stuff... not much time, but at least I'm busy!

Sarah - I would never have a home birth but I think it would be cool to witness one. I was a nanny for a lady who had twins and she had a natural birth with them in the hospital but delivered her son at home. Pretty cool! My DH would freak out if I asked for a home birth. LOL!!

My pregnancy is going very smoothly. I feel so much better now that I'm in the second tri. Thank you, Lord!!!! These kids are movers and shakers. Jeremiah moves a ton and Evelyn is way deep in the bottom right and I don't feel her as much, but when they get going together, it's a crazy dance in there! I was startled the other day when one went one way and the other went the other way. It pushed my belly out on both sides. It is pretty darn cool tho!

I had an appt yesterday. Great strong heartbeats. No u/s this time, but in two weeks. I'm measuring 24 weeks and my doc says I look about like her 28 week singleton patients. LOL! She also said I need to pay more attention to my BH and if they are lasting 45 seconds and happening a lot I need to call her. Here are my most recent belly pics. These are from last week:

OMG, Kristina you are adorable with your belly!

Sara - sounds like you are keeping busy to say the least!

As for me, I just thrilled to be part of the prego update! We had first u/s last week. It was funny because my OB said he thinks he is more excited than we are! Baby measured 6w4d last Thursday and we go back again this Thursday so hopefully he can get a better look at the heartbeat. I am feeling good, just tired and nauseous in the mornings and sometimes at night. I did the "breakup" call with the nurse at the fertilitu clinic yesterday since my OB obviously wants to follow my pregnancy from the start. Cross your fingers for a good u/s this week!

LOVE that belly!!! Glad you all are doing so well. I would love to do an at home birth, but I am pretty sure we are done having kids.

I love hearing the udpates!

First for me....I am officially a college graduate!! YAY!

We're doing good here...35 weeks already, ack. It's been a fantastic pregnancy and other than ridiculous full-time heartburn I have no complaints. I had an appointment on Monday and finally starting to gain weight. Measuring a week ahead again and the OB thinks he'll be on the "bigger" side (bring it on, chubby babies are sweet!). I woke up this morning with an overwhelming feeling that he is going to be early, I'm not sure why as I've been hoping all along that he goes to at least his due date for selfish, lazy reasons.

Here is a picture from this morning, I'm down to wearing dresses or sweats - don't remember having baby so low as Kaylin stayed in my ribs the entire time. But this little guy is already locked in and ready head down and low in my pelvis!

You look amazing Rebecca! And CONGRATULATIONS on graduating!!!!!!

Ok, you all are going to jinx me!!!! I think I could be convinced to have another one, but DH is pretty happy with just the two. I really loved being pregnant and giving birth. I would LOVE to do that again!

Congrats on graduation, Rebecca! You look great. My pregnancy with Ev was similar to yours in that the heartburn never ended and he felt ready to come out for a very long time! Do you guys have a name for the little man?

Every thing she said!

Tara- your DH needs a son. With all that outdoorsy stuff I saw at the party he needs a son!

Thanks ladies Smile No name yet...and weirdly we're not stressing it. We've tossed a few around but can't really agree on one set name. I think we've decided just to each take a few to the delivery and name him when he gets here. It's driving our family NUTS!

And Tara - you need another one, c'mon! You make pretty babies Smile

LOL! I see you guys skipped asking for names from me! I guess that after taking a month after she was born to name Ivy, and another month to name Leo, you figure it's a lost cause! You're probably right, but I do have my own ideas (that are old from the previous name lists!)

Sarah - I love the idea of getting to know our babies before naming them! It seemed like minutes after Evan was born they were asking me for a first and middle name in the hospital! Thank goodness Evan was the only name we could agree on! We did do a last minute change on his middle name which added a bit of excitement! Any feelings on whether this one is a boy or girl for you?

I'm a little late with an update. It's been a crazy week!
I'm 20 weeks tomorrow! Double pump for the halfway mark!
We have our gender u/s on tuesday at 4, so I can update more then.
As for a belly pic....I'm avoiding as much as possible! :neener:

I'm so late-- but I'm here.

Things have been crazy at work and I'm just digging out. Baby and I are great-- I'm to the point that I feel huge and a bit tired, but it is hard to separate pregnancy fatigue from working crazy hours fatigue. I've had so much travel coupled with late night events and then I interviewed for that new job (a 9 hour interview one day and another few hours the next day with the VP = exhaustion.)

We had one last event on Friday night that had me working a 14 hour day (better than last week when I had a 21 hour day!) But we had to move so much furniture and was on my feet so much that I was wiped.

We leave for vacation on Saturday and I'm so ready. Taking our annual fly to Florida and sit on the beach for the week trip. We'll return when I'm exactly 36 weeks....and then I can think about having a new baby--lol.

Hi everyone! I know I haven't been on here for a long time but just wanted to tell you guys that I found out on Sunday that we are expecting #4! This wasn't a planned pregnancy. We did the deed one time without protection and now here we are! I'm happy though I have been wanting another one for a while now. My EDD is February 1, 2013

I'm not going to spill the beans for Alison, but she did post it on the Sept board.

I don't have much of an update, I will next friday at my next MFM appt. But I will post a belly pic. Bare belly - yuck, lol! But I would only post that here. Not that I don't think bare bellies are cute, mine just isn't. I'm damaged goods. LOL!

Congrats, Amber! So exciting and fun!

Love the name Sydney. We are still nameless over here.....hoping Trey settles on something in the next couple of weeks.

I'm still feeling good-- no complaints here. I have no expectation that this baby will arrive any earlier than his siblings Smile Can't imagine he'll be here before the 16th or so.....

Congrats everyone new!

Audra - June 17 and 19 are great days! June 17 was Reed's birthday (and Father's day like this year), and June 19 is my birthday. I'm voting for those two!

As for me, I still haven't had a belly photo. I seem to be on the wring end of the camera these days. I have my next appt with the MW next Wednesday and will be about 29.5 weeks then.

I'm voting for June 13 (my birthday) or June 14 (my sister's birthday) so she can end the suspense early! Wink If we have to go late, then my vote is for June 20 (Kieren's birthday).

Isn't June a great month? Wink

(My dad is also June 3, and my mom is June 28th)... methinks something's in the air in September! Lol

I love it. I'm totally okay with the 17th-- as it is father's day. Though I have in my mind June 16-- that way we can keep this weird pattern with birth dates going (6/26, 3/23, 5/15,-- 6/16 just goes, don't ya think?) Plus June 16 is the EDD and it would be fun to have TWO due date babies.....lol.

That said, I'm really quite comfy and sleeping well. So I'm not out to rush anything along. Smile

OMG Rebecca! I cannot believe it is about your due date already! Pregnancy goes by so much faster when I'm not the one pregnant! lol

I agree ladies, it does go by SO much faster when we aren't the pregnant ones! Rebecca, you MUST keep us updated. Do you have a birth buddy on the June board? If so, she should post over here too! I like to know things ASAP!!! Same for you Audra!

Sarah, I'm always on the wrong side of the camera too. Heck, from Christmas day there is not ONE SINGLE PICTURE of me! It doesn't help that DH doesn't like to use the good camera, he's afraid he will break my "baby"! LOL

Yay, Laurie! That is so awesome!!! I'm thrilled for you! Congrats!

All is well here. I'm really pregnant. Made it to the gym this morning, and just walked at lunch. This little boy is sitting SO low that he rubs his head on my cervix and it hurts! Today is my last day in the office, though. WOOT! Looking forward to a few days with our big kids-- we plan to lay low, chill at the pool and just relax. I'm looking forward to it!

Kristina - each u/s seems to have a different due date for me! Yesterday's u/s showed a due date of December 18 which would put us at 12w3d today! One of these days I will get around to putting up my ticker...lol. This one seems to be flying by compared to Evan! How are you doing?

Audra - Enjoy your time before the little man's arrival!!

You just amaze me... 39 weeks pregnant, with 4 "big kids", and you still made it to the gym this morning, work, and a walk at lunch?

Can I say that I consider my walk from the parked car to my office to be my "walk" for the day? What do you do at the gym?

And you say you "just" walked at lunch... were you going to go for a run? LOL! Heck, I remembered my lunch which was a big bonus!

Dec. 18 is my daughter Mimi's birthday!! She's such a wonderful girl, has the best personality in the entire world... sweeter than sweet, helpful, adventurous yet girlie.... I love Sagittarius (sp?)! Smile

So so happy for you that all went well with your screening!!! Now you can RELAX and enjoy this pregnancy! Smile
