Have you bought anything for the baby? Just a little giraffe sleeper.
How are you feeling this week? Pretty good. The weather is HOT! We are trying to get out to the pool several days.
Any new developments with the baby? Just lots and lots of movement. So nice to know what this baby is and to have a name for her so we can start calling her by her name and connecting with her more.
Summer plans? Trips/holidays/vacations? My parents are coming at the end of the week for a visit. We plan on doing a few fun outtings while they are here. And then the peeps and I are hosting playdates every other Friday with a big group of friends. Trying to have a theme each week for them to do crafts/read books/movie time with. This week it is insects.
Anything else going on atm? DH has a 2 months break for school, so we are working hard at organizing/purging the basement and doing a few other projects around the house. We spent all day on Saturday in the basement and I sorted through all the baby girl clothes and found all the burp rags and newborn cloth diapers and carriers and stuff like that and know exactly where they are, so they will be easy to grab in a few months.
Age: 33 (for another couple of weeks...)
Due Date: October 15
Do you know the gender or team green? Girl!
Next appt: July 19th--it'll be the Rho/GAM shot, glucose test, etc. Fun!
Name chosen yet? Yes, but it's a secret
Have you bought anything for the baby? Just a little giraffe onesie (jinx, Wendy!) and a crib sheet
How are you feeling this week? Aside from feeling like I'm getting laryngitis this morning, fine!
Any new developments with the baby? Baby was sitting on some veins causing some awful swelling the past few days, but I seem to have gotten her to move enough now. She's been very active, although still in a more mellow way than her sister (more thumping, less crazy acrobatics so far) although this morning she seems out to prove me wrong on that...
Summer plans? Trips/holidays/vacations? We already took our big summer trip to CT/NYC. It was lovely!
Anything else going on atm? Yes! I'm about halfway through DD's birthday bedroom transformation--she's getting a big girl bed for her birthday, and I'm totally rearranging everything in her room, bought some new shelving, etc. to update the whole thing to a well-planned out BIG GIRL ROOM rather than a hodgepodge of baby stuff. She's LOVING what I've done so far, although we're saving the actual bed for her actual birthday.
We are also renovating our kitchen this weekend--well, changing the countertops and sink to butcherblock counters and a white ceramic farm sink. I am SUPER EXCITED about it! All this work is making me fall back in love with our little house again Guess we know where all that nesting instinct is being directed...
Due Date: 10-18

Any new developments with the baby? still active, no more news on the placenta previa yet
Summer plans? Trips/holidays/vacations? not really, unless the previa moves. I'm not sure how comfortable I feel traveling, so we're most likely sticking to day trips.

Next appt: July 5th
Name chosen yet? ugh. grr.
Have you bought anything for the baby? YES. I have. We have a lovey consignment store around the corner that I've visited 3 times this month, I've maybe spent $100 on dresses and fun pink flowery girly frilly stuff! I promised myself no more (maybe once more) until after baby shower.
How are you feeling this week? She must have had a growth spurt, because the peeing every 30 min to 1 hour has kicked in...I feel like she's just sitting there poking and bouncing on my bladder!
Any new developments with the baby? Just lots and lots more movement. All the boys have gotten to feel her kick which is cool.
Summer plans? Trips/holidays/vacations? We might go up north and visit the sequoia national forest for a couple days in August. My hubby's birthday, our 10 year wedding anniversary, then my birthday all back to back in August so we need to celebrate!
Anything else going on atm? I am on my last week of homeschooling! So I am trying to get next year completely organized before the end of August, that way it makes things easier when she arrives. Reviewing curriculum, creating lesson plans, and organizing shelves/drawers in the school room (future baby girl's room!).
I also host a mom's book club on Thursdays, so that's coming up tomorrow night...I love having my friends over for fellowship and encouragement! It's a great book too. Called Give them Grace, it's a Christian based parenting book.

Any new developments with the baby? Just growing...making my belly button sore!
Summer plans? It's winter here now, and foofing freezing. They boys and I just spent a week up with Andrew up in Darwin which was lovely. Nice a hot, I even got a little bit of sun burn on my boosies!
Anything else going on atm? My house is revolting because we are in the middle of having a big clean up and moving rooms around. Will be nice once it's all done though.
