    I have a bit of spotting this morning. We will see but this is right around where I have mc'd twice before so I'm not feeling hopeful. I had just contacted a birth center and started to feel excited. We will see....spotting doesn't make me hopeful

    I hope it works out, Katie. Do you have any more tests around? It could give you an idea of where you stand. With my 5w m/c my test when I started spotting was way lighter than I'd expect. I've never spotted with a viable pregnancy, but I know many women do. Good luck.

    AFM: we're in the midst of registering Alex for kindergarten for next year. Crazy! Arthur has another cold (head cold this time) and his sleep has been terrible again. DH and I are having trouble agreeing on where we want to go and what we want to do when we move. It's really stressful. I didn't know how hard it would be for me to face potentially moving away from family, but now that it's getting closer ever time he brings it up I get really anxious. I hope we can find some compromise (I've never lived more the 3 hours from my parents and right now everyone is within 1.5 hours of each other. I love it!)

    Come to NC I could use a mama friend It is hard good luck with your decisions. I don't regret moving but it is a challenge and making friends as an adult who is very happy to be home has its challenges.

    Well I had the light spotting yesterday morning but nothing since. I only have digital tests. I will just wait....I can't change things so we wait. If things do go ok I did find a birth center an hour away where the boys would be welcome and I think despite the drive hassle we will go with that.

    Our ny house is close to back together. What a huge hassle...It has been one stress after another I need a break!

    can you drive an hour during labor? I know after this most recent one finding some place close is going to be my highest priority if we have another baby. I'm glad the spotting stopped.

    I think I can so long as I air on the side of caution which I suppose may lead to a false alarm or two but with Rory I knew I was in labor around 6pm I didn't go to the hospital until after 1am but I could have gone earlier. So I think I can make the trip I just have to not hang at home. They said they have people come from much much further than an hour often, she wasn't phased by an hour at all, or kids, she said her daughter was there for her birth. We have a tour planned in Feb (tour is required prior to first appointment).

    No issues this weekend so yay to that!

    I'd have loved a birth center, but with my medical issues and the fact that my labour is so fast and the nearest center is over an hour away it couldn't have happened.

    Keeping my fingers crossed for you Katie that the pregnancy is healthy.

    I'm hoping we can do a birth center if we have more. I've always wanted one, but haven't had one nearby.
    I'm glad your house is back together!

    Yesterday I kept running into people who mentioned they came from a big family (6-7 kids) or had one (a really nice old lady I met). It sounds so nice, but like so much work.

    Well Virginia I definitely think if any mom can do it you clearly can! You have 4 all 2 years apart and seem to do it was relative ease.

    Things here seem good. Maybe the light spotting was implanting? I don't know but it never came back and I officially felt coffee aversion starting this week and that's my sign LOL THe only time I ever don't want coffee is the first trimester. I have had none today and the idea makes me feel barfy. That and I'm drinking gallons of water. I'm feeling excited and nervous and all those things!

    The house should be ready to be shown mid week! DH is going to NY to see everything and be sure we're happy with it all. We're still waiting on insurance but it seems like it's fine though I keep bracing myself for the fact that could change ? Either way the house is just about complete and that's a relief. What a stressful month. DH also got a job. He has mixed feelings he has loved being home and the boys have had a wonderful time. On one hand he knows four months home is more than many dads (or parents) ever get and on the other he wishes it could be more. But it is a great paying job that has no travel and seems to have limited stress/after hours responsibility. So we'll see. With the baby coming we'd like to get the NY house sold and buy here so we'll see how it all comes out!

    This baby has me EXHAUSTED I have been asleep on the couch by 9 every night!
