    Virginia - sorry about the bfn,but it is really early.

    Molly - glad things went well with Santa. We will see how it goes for us this weekend.

    Amanda - happy anniversary!

    Katie - gl getting stuff done around the house. Sorry you've now caught the cold.

    Mary - such a cute love story!

    AFM - been having a lot of BH contractions today. If I stand they are practically one on top of the other. If I lie down they pretty much stop, I just get a random one every so often. Guess I did too much this morning... Glad its almost nap time! I'm hoping they completely go away then... I just don't want this to turn into the real deal... I'm 36w5d, so even if it did I'm sure everything would be fine since I'm practically term. But still, I'm not ready yet! I'd like this baby to wait til after Christmas, preferably. (: ahhhhhhh!

    Good luck, Lauren! Let us know if it turns into labor.

    AFM: hmm... I don't know. I impulsively took another test and... I don't know. It's either the faintest BFP or the cruelest evap ever. I tried to take a picture and I can't catch it, so I'm guessing it's an evap.

    Funny story. I got up at 5:30am and decided to test. Watched it for a bit. BFN. Ick. Went back to bed. Alex came in and snuggled. When DH woke I told him and we talked about things. At 7 I got up, glanced at the test and said "actually, wait a minute..." found better light "huh. Maybe we did get one." DH looked and concluded he saw something which wasn't nothing and wasn't clearly pink. I tested again and...

    that one I can see. It's super light, but looks pink to me.

    ETA: and yeah, my temp dropped a bit, but the heat went off last night (darn old furnace has a loose part) and it was only 59F in our house this morning. Brrr.

    That looks like a BFP to me Virginia! I don't even have to squint and tip my lap top screen, it's clearly PINK! I'm thinking baby #4 is on its way Crossing everything for you!

    VIRGINIA!! That is soooo definitely a pink line. Lots of sticky vibes for you Sending you tons of good thoughts.

    Lauren: I hate BH contrax. I get them bad my whole 3rd tri and they are so annoying. Hope baby stays put a while longer for you!

    OMG Virginia - That is undeniable! And it's on a cheapy test, I'll bet it looks great on a FRER. Woohooo!! Sending lots of sticky vibes your way.

    Lauren - You had crazy BH's with Xander too, didn't you? When did you go into labor with him? I've never had a lot of BH's (I do have them here and there later in pregnancy, but not repeatedly over any period of time).. If I did, I'd probably think labor was on the way, haha. I hope your bean holds out a little longer, but good luck with the Christmas thing... It's going to be a close one, I'm sure!!

    AFM - I can't believe tomorrow is 18 weeks for me. A few days ago, I suddenly started feverishly looking for boy's names. I usually try not to think about names at all until after we know what we're having. And just today, I referred to the baby as a "he" when I usually get on DH for doing that same thing and tell him, "We don't know yet." It's so weird, I don't know where it came from. Every time I do a prescription for a male at work, I pay extra attention to the name and try to decide if I could use it, haha. It's either mother's intuition or the universe making me do all this crazy thinking for no good reason.

    In other news, I've been experiencing (also over the past few days, what is wrong with me?!) a strange heightened sense of awareness when I'm asleep. The only other time I've experienced that was when my other LO's were newborns, for the first few weeks. It makes me sleep very light and so my sleep is not fulfilling.. I don't feel rested in the morning. It's like I'm in fight-or-flight mode all night long. Ugh... It made sense to me that I felt that way when the kiddos were newborns, but why now? I guess I'm just getting an early start, haha.

    Mary: I'll be very curious to see if this search for boy names is intuition. Do you guys have any leftover boys names you might still use? We do for a boy but for a girl...wow we are starting from scratch. DH seems to be in zero hurry to think about names and its driving me nuts. Sorry about the crappy sleep. I sleep horribly when I'm pregnant and my kids seem to be waking up a ridiculous amount lately. I think Dane is getting teeth again because he'll just cry and cry in the middle of the night for no reason (totally not like him) and Brekke is having nightmares but that's nothing new. They aren't like they used to be and I can settle her pretty quickly but now if I get woken up, it takes me a solid hour to get back to sleep. So annoying.

    Molly - Glad that your Santa visit went well.

    Virginia - I see a faint line, hope that keeps getting darker over the next few days.

    Katie - Hope you got lots done with the boys gone.

    Mary - I never felt much early on, Natalie I felt a little bit but nothing overly obvious.

    At least you are pregnant already when having baby fever.

    I was convinced Nat was a boy, my instincts were SOOOO wrong.

    Lauren - Not sure what you are like with BH, I started getting them around 35 weeks with Natalie, I was induced ath 37 weeks 5 days. So it's not always a sign that baby is going to come soon.

    Ashley - Hope you can get the kids sleep sorted out.


    *AFM*

    My friends baby was born yesterday, the new dad posted a pic on instagram, little boy is adorable.

    Hung out with my BFF yesterday, she told me that her and her DH are planning on TTC in the new year.

    All this baby talk is giving me serious fever!

    Got Natalie a dress to wear for Christmas (It has a matching dress for he doll), it's not the standard green and red, most of the ones I saw were either really expensive or UGLY so I went with one that is black with pink accents.

    My baby fever is so much stronger when I have time to read here You are all a bunch of bad, pregnant influences (I am of course kidding!). I won't be trying until at least April or May though so I need to keep it together!

    Rory had his 1 year old blood drawn today and I was expecting a freak out. He didn't even flinch. He sat on my lap, I wrapped my arm around him to hold his free arm, they pulled a band on his other arm, poked him, filled to vials and he was done. He just watched with interest. It was crazy. Evan went nuts for his if I recall correctly. Lots of crying and trying to pull away. The phlebotomist was even amazed -- to her credit she was so fast it helped.

    I took another test and it's clearly darker than this morning already.

    I'm pretty darn excited and DH is over the moon. EDD looks like around August 20th. Interestingly, this LO was conceived right around my birthday, we found out right around Raymond's birthday, and assuming things go well he'll be born right around Alex's birthday.
