    Thanks! It does feel fast....I haven't told work (or anyone but you ladies and DH) and I am going to need to soon. I have a 10 week appointment and I'm hoping I'll hear a HB and then I can tell people. YAY for you TTC again Keep the baby train rolling!

    Uff DH and I have had a bit of a stomach bug this week. Not super fun on top of already feeling pregnant off.

    Still waiting to hear on the house. The potential buyers asked us some questions so they are still interested just waiting on an official offer....

    could be TTC. DH is totally not on board yet. But, I had crazy baby fever yesterday after Arthur slept 8 hours straight! His sleep has been screwed up by cold after cold, but whenever he's feeling better he reminds me what an awesome sleeper he can be.

    Oliver has been backing off the nursing. He went two weeks without asking then started again. The other day, out of nowhere, he asked to nurse while we were out at his brothers' dance class and tried to pull my shirt down. I don't think so. Not in public at almost age 3. I mean... you have to draw the line somewhere, right? I haven't NIP with him since he was maybe 14 months, but he also hasn't asked in all that time.

    Speaking of NIP, Arthur won't do it. He gets too distracted, so he'll only suck a few times (just enough to get let down, of course) then start looking around as milk sprays everywhere. Of course, as soon as we get home he screams to eat and pigs out. It's really weird.

    I'm pretty liberal on BF'ing but I see your point with a 3 yo in public I mean to each their own if you were comfortable go for it but I can see asking him to wait.

    I'm sure your DH will get on board 8 hours YAY!

    We accepted an offer on the house. Less than we had hoped, sigh, but a solid offer, they have a conventional mortgage nothing funky to deal with and we negotiated a good bit to both of our limits so let's DO THIS!

    awesome news, Katie.
    Oh, and I'm totally getting a girl vibe for you.

    Yeah, I would have no problem with someone BFing a 3 year old in public, except that the only time I saw someone BF a 2+ year old she was on her cell phone at the same time. Personally, I know he can wait and I don't want to make other people uncomfortable (it would have been in the middle of a wide open waiting room) so I distracted him with regular food.

    DH feels like 4 is enough, but sometimes admits he kind of wants another. I figure even if he doesn't agree, sooner or later we'll manage to forget to prevent. (not that we're currently preventing other than BFing on demand)

    I got to talk to my sister. She said she's doing daily injections, so it sounds like they didn't make her do a month of BC first! I have my fingers crossed for a niece or two in November, Not that I would mind a nephew. She has essentially 0% chance of getting pregnant naturally (no tubes), but the doc said her odds are around 50% per IVF cycle, which is awesome.

    DH has always thought a third would be a girl. I don't have a real vibe. I would love a girl but obviously a third boy would be fun too. Now boys are what I am used to! Anything else seems odd

    Glad your sister has such good ivf odds. I really hope first time is a charm

    That breast milk research is really interesting. I am looking forward to another nurser...I am generally looking forward to the whole newborn thing....well minus the lack of sleep I suppose.

    I swear Evan would eat all day right now. We are trying to keep options healthy and let him be full but Jeesh it is non stop eating!!

    Oliver isn't much of an eater. He often declines offered meals, but about once a day he'll suddenly start eating a lot. It's weird compared to the others who want 3 meals and 2 snacks a day. Oh, and Oliver practically lives on bananas, apples (2-3 a day of each), and cheese. He'll do crackers/pasta, carrots, yogurt, and milk, but not as often as the others.

    So quiet around here...

    Hope everyone is doing well. It is in the 60s here this weekend and just beautiful. It makes some of this moving stress worthwhile Spending the day outside enjoying the beautiful weather is good for my mental health.

    Inspection happened yesterday and all seems well. I think there are a couple more tests to come in - the house is well water so the water test wasn't in house but we drank the water and tested it while living there so hopefully all will be well. I was a giant ball of nerves yesterday just b/c it feels like we've been on a crazy roller coaster and I'm just ready to be done, get the house sold and move on!

    This coming Friday I have my first midwife appointment. I'll be 10 weeks, I hope I can hear a HB....I eager for something to confirm for certain. Then I have to tell work, ugh LOL I think they'll be fine but it is always a bit awkward.

    DH started work and while we sell and buy it makes sense for him to work but we have been seriously discussing him going back to being home once the baby arrives. It worked well, it made us very happy, we just need to be sure financially it's comfortable.

    I'm glad things are improving, Katie. I hope you MW appointment goes really well.

    DH took some time off last week, so I wasn't on my computer much. And Arthur still doesn't sleep well at night (although he's a champion napper!). I got hit with crazy baby fever yesterday. We were at a museum with the kids and at one point I looked around then counted the pregnant women I could see. From where I was sitting I could see about a dozen, and only one woman who wasn't (visibly) pregnant. Crazy. Of course, DH had Arthur in the carrier, so the baby fever hit. Holding Arthur is usually a pretty good antidote.
    We would just have to figure out how we would survive the morning sickness again. I'm all for hiring a nanny so I can spend a month in bed.
