    Default General updates :)

    I wasn't sure where to post this so I just thought I'd start a new random baby updates thread.

    I am thinking little miss may have finally turned head down last night??? Who knows if she'll actually stay that way, but it gives me hope! I'm feeling a lot more pressure in the low center rather than to either side, and just had a case of hiccups right above my pubic bone...that seems promising, right?

    I hope you're right and she stays there for you!
    Nothing exciting going on with baby here. He was a little quiet this morning but has definitely gotten his kicking in since then.
    Oh, and we still need a name. I haven't been able to get DH to cut our list down past 18 names yet. I could probably cut it to 2-4, but feel like he should at least be there when I do that... and he never wants to talk about it.

    Hm, that's frustrating! Can you give him the big list and just instruct him to pick his top five? You do the same and see what matches? That's kind of what we did for DD1 and it worked like a charm

    I think the problem is that we realize it doesn't matter too much what we choose as long as we both kind of like it.
    I had it down to two names (we've certainly discussed boy names before!), but then he wanted to go through a baby name book. I should have told him I couldn't find it.

    So cool! I was sitting here with my computer (doing some math puzzles to combat pregnancy brain ) with my hand resting on baby's bum and he's practice breathing! It is by far the most amazing feeling (other than that first wiggle).

    On both counts--it's my absolute favorite part AND I felt it for the first time with this pregnancy today! Sweetest feeling in the world...

    Dang we are all getting so close! I have no clue if baby is in head down position, but we have plenty of time for that I guess. We all caught a nasty cough and I've been cooped up in the house for a week now, which is hard when it's 90 degrees and there's no air!! Whatever, the Lord has me here resting for good reason...I won't be getting much down time once baby #4 arrives!
    I did all the baby laundry a couple days ago, just to take inventory...and we have WAY too much already! Not sure how that happened...but I have a pretty big baby shower coming up on the 21st and I have a feeling everyone will be getting us more clothes! So it looks like I'll be blessing a couple other pregnant friends from church with all the extras, which is always fun.
    Joe also bought me a chair for the school room so I have somewhere to sit and nurse while the boys quietly and calmly do their schoolwork! Haha yeah right! We start on Monday, I'm excited to break open the new books and relearn some basics this year!

    Yay for (we think, but sounds like it) head down!!!

    That's unreal feeling the practice breathing. I've never felt it before. I love that.

    Boo for the name thing too. A and I spoke about names earlier on and he liked the ones I had picked, but a few weeks ago he's tried to tell me that we've never had that discussion!! So re-told him the names, and now he's oohhh, I don't know?!?!?! I said no way. In my head it's either ....... or ....... when I think about the baby. I can't be changing it now! Lol.

    As for my LO, it's being nice and calm today. No contractions at all, so I'm taking the opportunity to properly vacuum and maybe wash the floors while the boys are at kinder and school.

    Yay for a calm baby and body! Don't overdo it, though. Get a few things done and then get your feet up for a while

    Yeah, mine totally went transverse again yesterday evening, but now I think she's down again...as long as she's starting to spend time in that position, it definitely eases my mind, though.

    Sorry I haven't checked in here the last couple of days. I have been up to my neck in sewing working on the girls' Green Ridinghood Capes for our family pictures and a matching vest for DS. I have one cape completely done now and one almost finished. Trying to figure out how to resize the 2-4T pattern to newborn size because I have enough fabric to make one for Baby Laney as well! I have been brainstorming props for the family/newborn pics this week too and have some great ideas, I think. I am so excited about our pictures... DH just chuckles at me. The 2nd and 3rd weeks of October are supposed to be the best weeks for Fall colors in our area and that is exactly when we have our shoot scheduled!

    Had an OB appt. this am with the lovely ole GBS swab and my MW checked my cervix too... she said it was soft, but not dilated at all (I told her I would be super surprised if I were dilated even a tad!). We ended up running almost a few minutes late... and I forgot the kids' activity bag on the way out the door so they didn't have their Kindle/books/flashcards to keep them busy like I had planned, thankfully, they did well just looking at parenting/travel magazines while we waited. Baby is still head down... and busy as usual.

    I think we have pretty much everything ready for baby now. I just need to wash all the nb cloth diapers this weekend, start packing the hospital bag, bring the bouncy seat up and check the batteries in it, sterilize the breast pump parts, and bring the baby bathtub up from the basement. Everything else is ready to go. Even have the cradle set up in our room with a clean sheet on it.

    Yay for babies moving into position! We have been doing schoolwork for a month now and are getting into a good groove... need to plan out the next 2 weeks sometime this weekend. DH and I also need to work on DD2's birthday present. We are making her a light table for her birthday and the party is next weekend. I figure between sewing things, last minute baby gear prep, DD2's birthday, and then a friend an her three kids coming for a visit for 3 days the following week, I will have plenty of things to keep me busy the next 2 weeks... which will be great. As I am already starting to go stir-crazy, wondering when this baby is going to come.

    Husbands and Baby Names... What's the deal? Thankfully, my DH has been pretty easy going about it all...

    Those of you having baby showers will have to post pics so the rest of us can live vicariously through you!
