    Sandra - It's great to hear from you! I was just wondering how you were doing.

    Lauren - good luck with your PET scan. I hope it goes well. I hope the holiday weight come off easily, too.

    Oh, DH isn't "on board". We haven't had much luck finding a "perfect" form of BC and so he's kind of accepting an eventual oops. We're using spermicide and, honestly, I'll be surprised if we make it a year of regular cycles without conceiving in spite of it. The failure rate is around 20% and we're definitely on the fertile end of the spectrum. I'd like to at least make it to summer before having an oops. I like the idea of a "surprise" baby, but not just yet.

    Yay I can finally jump in! And hopefully keep up.

    Katie - Hope you had a great birthday! I can't believe you stayed up to watch the ball drop, seeing as you have a newborn still demanding your attention during the night. Even *I* didn't stay up! Okay, well, DH woke me up at 11:58.

    Amanda - Boo for AF, but glad you had a great time with the girls!

    Sandra - Hi!

    Mary - I know, winter has been sooooo warm so far! Everyone keeps saying January and February are supposed to be "bitter and snowy", so we'll see. So far it's been true here! It was seriously so cold today, I wanted to cry just putting the groceries into the car! We got some snow, but it was just an inch or so. I'm ready for more!

    Virginia - I'm sure there will be an oops before summer. I personally think you're insane!!

    Lauren - Good luck with the PET scan on Monday! Keep us posted! We'll all be thinking of you, I'm sure. And yeah, I'm sure I gained some weight over the holidays! I haven't been on the scale since before Christmas, so I'm not actually sure. As of the last time I was on, I'd only put on 1 lb. of the 3 I'd lost during the first tri! So that was good. No official "gain" yet, but I'm sure Christmas and everything shot that to crap.

    AFM - Not a whole lot going on here! Now with all the holiday stuff out of the way, we have some time to breathe! But now I'm excited to start planning Owen's birthday party next month! I can't believe he's going to be two already! It's insane. Time really does fly!

    I've been feeling the baby for the last few weeks, so that is totally cool! It's nothing more than a random poke once or twice a day, but it's nice to feel! Saturday night, after a piece of ice cream cake, it freaked out for a good 15 seconds, so that was awesome. Of course, it's been quiet the last two days, which always freaks me out. Even though logically I know it's still so small, moving half an inch can make it impossible to feel. I felt one little jab at lunch, so that was nice. But I can't wait to get to the point that I'm feeling strong movement all the time!

    Jen - Woohoo for feeling the baby! That's the part I always miss the most about being pregnant. I loooove the movement! (except hiccups... for some reason, I always found them painful. they're still really sweet, though)

    Lauren - Glad you're getting your PET scan soon. I wish I would've gained 4-5lb over the holidays, haha. We had to do stupid health testing for our insurance this year for a discount on our deductible, and I came up underweight.

    Virginia - My DH wants an oops, haha. Maybe not RIGHT NOW (although I told him the other day I forgot to take my pill the day before, and he still tried to molest me... luckily the kids woke up, hahaha... I am NOT ready for an oops).

    Sandra - Welcome back! How's everything going??

    Katie - Love the pics! Rory has more hair! I see some similarities, but some differences too.

    Katie - Both your boys are big compared to my girls at that age. Rory looks like he's a bit more physically developed too.

    Sandra - Hi, hope to hear from you more.

    Lauren - Hope your scan goes well. I've struggled to put on weight since the Dystonia started, so the holidays really didn't do anything to me except help me maintain.

    Jen - Yay for baby movement, can't believe you are at that point already.

    Mary - On birth control I missed pills plenty, not once in 9 years did I get pregnant. Yet if I go off them and DTD instant-preggo.

    *AFM*

    Just been working this week, we aren't overly busy but there are things to keep me occupied with so it makes the days go by fast but not stressful.

    Virginia - I'm sure you'll have an oops if you don't convince DH to have an intentional first Me on the other hand I think I may go the BCP route in a bit - I'm totally on the fence about a 3rd at this point and definitely don't want one right away

    Sandra - good to "see" you! How's Andrew?

    Jen - yay for movements! SO fun! I'm trying to get my body back. Sigh 25 lbs to lose uugghhhh

    Mary - I've got plenty of weight for you right now

    Amanda - fast non-stressful days are the best work ones!

    I've been able to get things done around the house today. I feel very productive but I've really only accomplished the "normal" chores. But compared to what I've been able to get done since Rory came home it's a step in the right direction! We finally got around to getting a new fridge yesterday. We had a mini fridge and the basement freezer so we were just going along and frankly being lazy LOL It arrives Tuesday and is basically identical to what we have - how exciting can a fridge really be?

    Mary - DH always force-feeds me when we have some sort of health thing coming up which requires BMI. You better stay on top of those pills if your DH is that sure he's ready for more!

    Jen - yay for movement! Do you have your big u/s scheduled or will baby be a surprise?

    Katie - I'm glad you're sort of getting back to routine. How's Rory doing?

    AFM: I have some work to do for family so I might not be on much for a bit (not paid, just family obligation stuff). Also, Oliver
    is pulling up and trying to cruise. Mostly he falls down and bonks his head. He had his first hair cut, too. I'll try to post pics evenutally.

    Hey ladies! I still keep up with all of you, just no time to post! We just celebrated Claire's 1st birthday! And Cooper is over half-baked! He'll be here before I know it!

    This week should be less hectic, I'll try my best to post more!

    Hi everyone! I haven't been on the computer much the last few days... Work and the boys are keeping me busy, I guess. That, and trying to get this house in some sort of order after the holidays.

    Laura - I can't believe you've past the halfway point in your pregnancy already!! Holy moly!!

    Virginia - Can't wait to see haircut pics! Hahaha... I can't imagine one of my babies ever needing a haircut that young. My kids stay bald for SOOOO long.

    Katie - Woohoo for a new fridge! LOL.

    AFM - We're trying to work out a little vacation this summer. My mom mentioned in an email last night that they're going on a beach camping trip with my uncle/aunt and their kids in June, to a beach in SC. It so happens to fall on the week that I'm on vacation. But unfortunately, they are leaving over the weekend, and I work that weekend. So I'm trying to switch a weekend with my partner that I work with, but unfortunately, the weekend he wants me to work happens to be Sean's birthday. I REALLY don't want to work my kids' birthdays, so I'm not thinking I'll do it, but I really want to go and take the kids on a little trip this summer.

    ETA: Bah, n/m... I think DH is too skittish about taking the boys on that long of a drive. So we'll probably just stick around here for my week off. Not quite as fun, but whatever. It's a lot of work taking one baby on a beach vacation as we learned with Sean... Probably much the same, and worse, with two...

    I had a dream last night that I gave birth at home, unassisted... To triplets! LOL. In the dream, I easily could've made it to the hospital, 5-10 minutes down the road, but I lied and said they were coming too quickly because I knew my OB wasn't going to let me attempt to deliver them vaginally. The first two were born about an hour apart and the third was born about 45 minutes after the second. I don't know the genders, but they were all nice and big, hahaha...

    I'll post personals later this afternoon, but i've gotta say, not pleased this morning with 4.5 hours of sleep. Andrew apparently had other plans other then sleeping.

    Did i mention i'm out of k-cups for my coffee?
