    Default Happy August - Chat Thread

    Well these are a little sparse these days but since folks do seem to check in I figured I'd start a new thread for August.

    Next month is baby month for me and I'm starting to get really excited. I'm just starting to feel a bit awkward in size and movement. This has been a seriously easy pregnancy. At my last visit the midwife thought he was head down but wasn't 100%, they have a little portable u/s machine they check with at 37 weeks if I want it so I will probably do that to be sure.

    DH and I volunteered to be soccer coaches for Evan's U6 team. Well an e-mail came out that enough kids for 10 teams signed up but enough coaches for just 3 so either they randomly picked 3 teams worth and dropped the others or more coaches needed to offer. Since I want to meet people anyway I figured why not? I did warn them we would run in to a week or so along the way the baby will come and we might need back up but the coordinator said once things are running usually other parents are happy to help and cover. So what the heck, they are under 6, how hard can it be? HA!

    I've been on a sell things on Craig's List binge. We had a really nice double stroller I don't expect we'll use much. Rory has never been a big fan of being in a stroller and Evan is too big. Rory isn't going to stroll if Evan is walking so I figured we might as well sell it and use it to buy a new infant carseat. Sold that last week! Then I decided the couch we had up in the attic storage wasn't realistically going to be used any time soon. We thought it would be good when we refinish the attic room as a spare room but that is a year or more off. So I figured if I could get what I wanted for it (it was used for about 8 months, ugh, sad waste of money lol) I'd sell it. And we did! I really don't enjoy dealing with CL people but it has been a nice little bonus! I think I'm officially out of random things to sell now though so that's the end of my windfall.

    We interviewed a nanny last week and have a part time back up potential person coming over today. It's nice to think we'll have some kid coverage soon! Of course now we want to test both out and I need to think of a fun date.....I'm so programmed to have the kids with us outside of a nice dinner I just can't think of much!

    And in other exciting random news Rory is out of diapers except for naps and bed!! He had one accident at daycare Thursday and one Friday but he tells us when he has to go pee and is doing great! If he gets really busy he will have an accident but all in all he is diaper free! Poop is a work in progress though he tends to do it at night in his diaper, it took Evan a full year after being potty trained to reliably poop in the potty so I'm just rolling with it.

    That's all from here....

    all great news, Katie!
    so, DH and I each lived with our parents for three weeks, closed, moved in, and almost immediately went on vacation. Things have been pretty crazy and so... well... guess who might be in the 2ww? I seriously have no idea where any of our BC ended up. I haven't been paying much attention, but I'm reasonably sure I Oed a couple days ago. I haven't had PPAF yet and usually don't have a competent LP right away so I'm not too worried.

    Virginia - Oh boy I wonder if you will have your oops You have always suspected it could happen! I will be curious!

    I'm feeling ready to meet my LO. Just itching to have him here but since I have a history of being overdue I probably better settle in and wait!

    All else is calm. We should be on vacation right now. Sigh. Instead we cancelled when DH's father passed away. I did find a local photographer to do family pics once baby is here. I'm pretty excited. We're not doing newborn shots, it will be mid november. I'm looking forward to family pictures

    7dpo and feeling fine. I'm tired, but that could just be from staying up unpacking. I finally got out my thermometer this morning and my temp is definitely in post o range. Either af will show in the next few days or I'll test at some point. If I am pregnant I should get really tired and kind of grouchy and anti social anytime now. And we're supposed to go but a car tomorrow.
    Timing wouldn't be great because the m/s would hit just as the kids are all starting school at new schools.
    I can't believe you're so close, Katie!

    Arthur is still nursing on demand a bunch (including one or twice at night), so I'm surprised to be at 7dpo. My first lps after the others were 4, 4, and 6 days.

    Aw crap. It's only 5 pm and I'm ready to lie down on the floor and take a nap.

    8dpo and twiddling my thumbs. Bought a honda odyssey, finally. Temp is still up and all.
    But, I thought of something today. The morning if Aug first I had a ton of ewcm (with spotting) and I had been having sore ovaries and o pains for a couple weeks. But, that afternoon I did a half mile swim. I'm no exercise fanatic, so that's way more than normal for me. Then my fertile signs disappeared. So, maybe I oed, and maybe I scared my body into giving up.

    I was wondering if you upgraded to a full sized van! We're debating it. I'm hoping we can hang on we have 0% financing on our Highlander and it will be paid off in a couple years, the same time our lease is up on the VW (which we leased quickly when we moved, don't hate it don't love it). So we were thinking it would be nice to have the Highlander paid off and get a van and just have a van payment. But that means a couple years of 3 kids across the back.

    Lazy weekend here. Rainy and grey so mostly just hanging out. Let the kids watch too much TV but sometimes you just need to veg. I meant to get to a store to look at infant seats but didn't. I meant to dig out Rory's hand me down clothing too and sort it. Didn't do that either. aw well I have a little time
