    Well I mean you want 3 right Mary?? LOL! I wonder what my body will do. I started ovulating again at about 7 mo PP but I didn't work at 12 weeks like I will this time I think that may change it. Plus Evan loved to EAT. I have no BC plan so if you figure something out let me know LOL One of the nice parts of being preg is 9 months w/o worrying LOL

    We're heading out to the inlaws around nap time. 2 hour drive, 2 hour nap that should work well since BIL isn't arriving until about 1 and he's the point of the visit.

    Evan has a runny nose. We have a vacation planned next week. I'll keep an eye on it but Thurs if I'm worried we're heading to the doc, no sick babies on vacation! I'd rather go and be told he's fine then get to Cape Cod and have him miserable. Right now he's acting fine though and it's just really clear runny nose. I worry about his ears though.

    Today is beautiful I kind o fwish we could stay home and enjoy it. Oh well... DH's brother only visits once a year or so I can't complain too much

    Katie - I hope it's not going to get to his ears. Being sick while you are away from your doctor wouldn't be great. Hope you have fun with your BIL. Your new yard stuff sounds nice - it will be a great summer there. I wish I had a yard.

    Mary - sorry your body thinks it needs to revolt against your BC plan. I'm using your plan right now too - abstinence and no ovulation, I don't know how long it will last though, at some point I'm sure I will wind up Oing again. I should start paying attention. Look at how different he looks! I started a 365 yesterday. I have to decide where I'm going to post them. I took a bunch of pictures yesterday, but I don't think I want to do that all the time, I need to just take better shots so I don't haveto weed through them. I have to do some post-processing though, I didn't change my WB and the picture is really off in terms of color.

    Virginia - love your mommy pick up lines. I'm painfully shy so it's always hard for me to meet new people on my own. I guess I'll have to get over it until Lily is old enough to make her own friends.

    Lauren - Poor Xander! I'd be guilty of that probably (well not a flaming hot cheetoh, but probably something like wasabi) but Lily likes spicy food and strong flavors.

    Ash- hope the BH turn into some real contrax soon!

    We had lousy weather yesterday so we didn't do anything we had planned. Not sure what we'll do today - the weather looks iffy again. I just want to get out of the house. Maybe we should go try the new ice cream place in our neighborhood. I love how my plans generally revolve around food

    Quick post here since I am at work, got through reading on my lunch but didn't get to personals, sorry.

    I'm on CD35 today, funny thing I knew this cycle would be long. Wonder what is going on with my body. I figure if I get to CD40 I will call my family doctor and get things rolling on seeing a specialist, this is not normal for someone that has been regular their entire life.

    Erica: most of my plans revolve around food as well
    Katie: sorry you are "stuck" inside. Hopefully Evan's runny nose is just annoying at most and doesn't turn into anything.
    Amanda: hope you had fun at the street festival
    Mary: boo to the EWCM, lol to your "do not ovulate" plan
    Hi everyone else!

    Hope everyone is having a nice 4th! We are up at our condo just enjoying the long weekend - my mom took DD for one night so we had a night to ourselves before this baby comes. We took her to a firework show last night which she was only mildly interested in but I was just glad it didn't scare her. Baby boy has dropped low & making life somewhat more difficult since I get lightening bolts of pain shooting down there when walking completely making me stop in my tracks. Plus I've had the worst heartburn imaginable at night lately and not getting much sleep (think: regurgitating a ball of fire), but otherwise I feel great for 38 weeks so I really can't complain! Hoping to see some progress @ my appt tomorrow but not holding my breath since my contrax haven't really changed, just on and off random BH's. Oh well. Not much longer to go either way.

    Decided to let DH pick the baby's name out of the 3 that we both like...he likes one way more than the others so that will likely end up being it, but he said he promises he won't decide until he SEES our little guy. At this point, I don't care - I like them all just fine so whatever he chooses will be it. Plus maybe it'll be a fun first bonding experience for DH & the baby.

    Erica - Good luck with the 365! My white balance sucks on most of mine, hahaha. The picture I posted from the start of mine is way yellow. I tried using the tungsten setting indoors to get rid of that yellow, but then it's waaaaay blue. I didn't have any editing software until maybe a month ago and I'm still learning how to use it, so most of mine are unedited and I'm never happy with my white balance. My goal is just to keep learning and improving. I guess that has been my goal since I got my DSLR. I've never used it in auto mode because I want to really know how to use it... I love it when I learn something new and have a little "a-ha" moment.

    Ash - I hope you've made some progress at your appointment! I can't wait to hear what name your DH picks. It's getting so close!!

    Katie - I hope the trip to visit the ILs goes well. I didn't realize yours were 2 hours away. About the same as mine. Yours don't visit EVERY weekend, do they? Hahaha... I hope Evan isn't getting sick!

    AFM - So glad to be done with my weekend to work. I just hate working weekends. This one wasn't terrible... But with it being a long weekend and also the first of the month, I'm expecting to get my butt kicked at work tomorrow. Ugh! DH is mowing right now and the boys are both asleep. I've been home about an hour now and they've both been sleeping the whole time!

    ETA:
    I just thought this pic was sweet. It's me and Sean playing in the water on his birthday.

    Ash - have you had your appointment yet? Hope you've made progress!

    Mary - that waterfall looks like so much fun! How's the "do not ovulate" plan going?

    Amanda - weird that your cycles have suddenly gotten unpredictable

    Katie - hope he gets better soon

    Erica - I'd love to see some of the pictures you take!

    AFM: had a fun 4th. It was too hot, but otherwise good. The boys loved the fireworks. While waiting the played ring-around-the-rosie together. Adorable. And while watching, they kept giggling and saying "boom!". Oliver slept through it.
    Now I just have to explain to the older two that fireworks don't happen very often. They keep asking to go see more tonight.

    Mary, great pics. You look amazing, I wish I could've dropped that much weight when Xander was 4 mo's, but my body does the opposite of what it should while BF'ing and I held onto a lot of weight until I weaned - theeeeen it dropped off like crazy.

    Virginia, lol at the boys thinking they'll get to see more fireworks. I hope they're not too disappointed!

    Erica, hope the new ice cream place was yummy.

    Katie, I'm jealous of your new furniture and gazebo! We have zero shade in our backyard and it's full sun, so it can be brutal.

    AFM, had fun camping (camper camping). Xander did really well and had a great time with Grama and Grampa. I'm glad he's happy to play with them and not be all clingy on me like he used to be. He did good at the beach and even went in the lake for a bit. The pool was kind of cold so that made him angry. Now I'm just playing catch up with laundry and cleaning and all that...

    you all are adding shade to your backyards... ours is pretty much all shade and I kind of wish we had some full sun so I could garden! The grass is always greener, huh?

    I had my appointment, but no progress still. The 1/2 cm that I've been dilated is probably just since this isn't my first pregnancy, not a sign of anything "happening". I'm a little bummed, but what do ya do. Next week at my 39 week appt, we'll talk about whether or not to induce or wait it out a bit longer. The good news is that my BP is still awesome and baby looks great (other than that I'm measuring 39 weeks! )
