    Ashley - yay for good BP! At least if it stays down you can decide yourself what you prefer -- waiting or induction. And your last induction went really smoothly right? So that's always tempting LOL I can't believe you're so close!!

    Virginia - So true on teh shade/sun! I have the perfect yard for a garden. I just need to pull my act together and do it next year. Glad the boy had fun. We skipped fire works this year maybe next year we'll try it.

    Mary - adorable pic! And I agree you look great!

    Lauren - Saw some pics on FB so cute

    One more work day before VACATION! Yay for 3 day weeks become 2 day for the holiday then vacation LOL I also ordered 2 glamourmom nursing tanks today. I hope I like them. Baby Steals had them and I LIVED in my nursing tanks with Evan and I'd like some better ones this go around since I know I loved them. I went with mediums.....that might be a bit too small initially when I'm fat and engorged but eventually they should work when I balance back out. Evan is still snuffly. Poor kiddo. He went to bed early tonight he seemed tired we figured the rest would hopefully help. No fever though and he ran around in the yard like a maniac all evening so he must feel mostly ok. Just super runny nose.

    Ash - sorry you didn't have more progress. personally, I'd avoid an induction unless really necessary. But I haven't had the best experiences with them.

    Katie - yay for vacation!

    AFM: Raymond saw a very pregnant woman today (she's having baby by c/s in 2 days!). It set him off again. Again he told me I'm going to have another baby soon. Since we'd just been talking about whether he thought the woman we saw would have a boy or a girl (she's keeping it a surprise) I asked him what kind of baby I'll have. His answer? "Joseph." He also announced that he had boy/girl twins in his tummy. Kids are so much fun.

    Virginia - I have partial sun in my backyard, I do wish I could grow things well there but it doesn't really happen, I only have a few peppers in containers in the best spot for sun. I like the shade cause it also casts over our house so our A/C isn't nearly as costly as being in full sun.

    Katie - Yay for Vacation!

    TMI - 2/3 of my animals are sick.

    What a frustrating couple of days, last night Dana and I spent 2 hours cleaning up after Sadie (our dog) and Silver (our older cat). The dog was being ill all day, plus she has a lump on her hind quarter that needed checking out. The cat was peeing blood.

    So today I brought the pair of them to the vets. The vomiting happened to the dog about 1.5 years ago, they never really knew what caused it, she has a sensitive stomach so likely got into something she shouldn't have, so he's just doing the same treatment as before since it worked, an anti-vomiting shot and antibiotics. He was far more calm about the mass than I was said it seems like a fatty deposit, but would like to remove it and test it, so I think we will be talking to him about that on Saturday when we bring Mal (our kitten) in for his shots.

    Silver isn't the cleanest of cats, her bottom was quite the mess and because of that she got a UTI, a round of antibiotics for her should bring her back up to health, I asked about wiping her bum with baby wipes and he told me that might help prevent them. I asked about her weight and he said she is heavy for her body size but he's not concerned about it at her age (9 years).


    AF hasn't shown, I was a bit moody today, though I did have reason to be, but I hope that is a sign she will be here, really not liking the irregular cycles.

    On to the more positive stuff, my grandpa's party on Saturday went well everyone appeared to have fun. It was at the horse track which has a casino attached, dinner was paid for so we brought $40 to bet on the horses and got $10 in credits for the casino (part of the party dinner plan). DH and I left only $10 short of what we walked in with, I was happy with that. The best part of the night was that my grandpa LOVED the picture of the girls I printed and framed for him, though I didn't spend much on it I think it was his favourite gift .

    Virginia - Joseph is a good name with your other boys! Maybe Raymond knows something you don't? LOL!! Here's a link to the 2 albums on FB - you should be able to see them that way. Lily Album 365 Album

    Katie - yay for vacation! I hope you like nursing tanks - let me know. I almost ordered them today, but second guessed myself. Maybe they'll wind up in the archives.

    Ash - sorry you haven't progressed. At least your BP is down. I hope something starts happening soon! I'm excited to find out the name your DH picks.

    Lauren - Glad you had a good time. I'll have to check your pictures on FB.

    Mary - I love the waterfall picture! You look better with a 4 month old than I do with a 10 month old! I rarely shoot in anything but manual mode on my camera, probably because I am so used to shooting film. I really want to work on my post processing - I have Lightroom and Photoshop but have no cluehow to use either one well.

    Amanda - hope your body gets it's act together. Weird cycles are no fun if you are used to predictability!

    AFM - spent the afternoon in the park with a friend and her baby - it was hot, but we were in a nice shady spot so it was perfect. The girls were so funny having "conversations" with each other. It's so much fun watching them interact with each other.

    I totally forgot, Dana and I started making a tutu for Natalie today, we are going to a superhero party at the end of the month and Natalie is going as a Green Lantern (bought a shirt online) thought I'd make a green and white tutu as part of her "costume".

    Katie - Wooohooo for vacation! I hope you have a good time away from work!

    Amanda - I hope the costumes turn out great... You'll have to post some pics. Sorry your animals are sick. I hope they feel better soon! Peanut is due for his checkup... I've been procrastinating on that, oops.

    Erica - I have Lightroom, but not Photoshop. I used to have an old version of photoshop on an old computer. I liked it, but I really like Lightroom better for my purposes (just quick, easy adjustments). I don't really do any crazy heavy editing, so I don't need the full functionality of Photoshop. I don't know if I ever would have bought it, but I posted on the Photography board here for a bit while I was on mat leave and had extra time to kill, and a girl there gave me a code to get it for 99 bucks. It was too sweet a deal to pass up!

    Virginia - LOL... I love Raymond's baby fever. He's great at naming babies, BTW! Speaking of baby fever... For maybe the first time ever, I had baby fever WITHOUT the pregnancy fever, just the other day. My "baby fever" is often just missing the feeling of a baby moving in my belly and associated pregnancy stuff... But I think because Cal's pregnancy was just really not fun, I'd almost rather just skip the pregnancy thing and go right on to baby.
    Oh, as for my "do not ovulate" plan... I'm not sure. I don't THINK I did, but I did have EWCM for about a day and a half, so I guess it's possible. I'm not temping or anything, so I suppose we'll find out in maybe a week and a half if AF shows up.

    Ash - Sorry for no more progress. Maybe you'll be one of those chicks that go from zero to full-blown labor overnight.

    AFM - I have the day off work today (woohoo!) but I have to go to the dentist for a filling (boooo! ). I don't think I had had a cavity since high school, then I had one after Sean and one now after Calvin. And all I remember is that nurse telling me that getting pregnant and breastfeeding so much, so close together can make my teeth fall out if I don't get enough calcium. I thought she was being overly dramatic and didn't really bother increasing my calcium intake... And now, a cavity after each?! I haven't changed my dental hygiene routine, so it makes me wonder if I should have listened to what she said. Soooo... I have started taking calcium + vitamin D just in case. I'm certain I'm deficient in both.

    Mary - ick to cavities! I had one after Evan but I get them here and there. I don't have great teeth in my family so I should probably take calcium. I do floss/brush etc I was just thinking I should probably set up a dentist apt for Evan

    Virginia - Raymond is too cute. I agree Raymond, Alexander, Oliver and Joseph sound great together Now if we could come up with a name. UUGGHHH We can't even talk about it right now we're so far apart on names sigh...

    Amanda - sorry about the pets. That is no fun at all. My cats have been puking lately but they do that from time to time. Hopefully the critters all stay healthy for the petsitter!

    Poor Evan is still wicked congested. No fever but I may run him to the ped tomorrow just to check his ears. I just don't want to wait and then have him get worse just before we're ready to leave. If everything is fine great, if not I'd rather get him started on something for the ears tomorrow and have him all healthy by Tues when we head out. If we didn't have a vacation I'd just ride it out and see how he did but it's our first family vaca ever and the first real vacation DH and I have taken since our honeymoon in 2007! Evan needs to be healthy!

    Katie - I'm so excited to see your ticker... Halfway day tomorrow!! Are you feeling the baby move? Sorry if you've mentioned that, I've been a little more MIA than usual lately. I hear ya on the name picking... DH and I had a relatively easy time picking Sean's name. It was hard, but nowhere near as hard as picking Calvin's. We really never agreed on ANY names for him. DH's #1 pick (Calvin) eventually grew on me, so we went with it... Now, I can't really picture him with a different name. It's funny how a person really "becomes" their name after a while. It'll come to you eventually!

    AFM - A little annoyed with DH. I'm within like 3 lbs of my pre-preg weight which is an exciting thing for anyone. So I announce it happily earlier and he gives me this look of despair. He did this after Sean too... I have weighed the same weight for the last ~12-14 years now, aside from when I'm pregnant. It so happens to be a few pounds underweight for my height. But it's just where I naturally fall. I'm not doing anything to try to lose weight. I'm too lazy to exercise, lol, and I still eat burgers, fries, pizza, ice cream ALL the time... I eat huge portions by anyone's standards. I am in no way deprived of anything... But he focuses solely on the BMI, blah blah blah, and wants me heavier. So my joy of being mostly back to normal after gaining 40lbs and carrying a baby is met with him sighing at me like it's a bad thing. End rant.

    I'm such a slacker at work today. Last day before vaca and I'm down in the meeting rooms so it's easy to slack off between appointments

    Mary - kind of funny that you're upset that your DH wants you to gain weight LOL I'm not sure my DH has ever mentioned my weight good or bad haha he's very PC on that one

    Yes feeling movement and I love it! It's still a bit sporadic and I can't poke him to make him move like you can when they get bigger lol So I sometimes feel anxious waiting for movement (b/c I am crazy) but it's still fun! I'm starting to look really prego too. I can't believe I'm 1/2 way.

    Erica - beautiful photos! I hope you mean maybe Raymond knows I'll have another boys someday. I better not get pregnant soon. Oliver needs his milk.

    Amanda - GL with AF

    Katie - Oh my, you make me miss movement so much! we don't agree much on names, either. Actually, I've wanted to use Joseph somewhere with all the boys, but DH never wanted to. Maybe Raymond can convince him for the next one. Little monkey is already sure he wants Joseph Zachary.

    Mary - My whole family does that to me! I've been around 100lbs since high school. They keep asking how much I weigh and are thrilled when I say I'm still at 110lbs. I plateaued there with the others, too, then it suddenly dropped off between 4-6m PP, so I'm not too optimistic it'll stay.

    AFM: Speaking of PP size, I don't think I'll ever fit into my pre-pregnancy pants again. It took 3 kids, but I think my hips got bigger. I tried some pre-preg pants this morning and could barely get them over my hips. Oh well. It might be nice to finally be out of juniors sizes.

    I have to order something on Amazon and it comes to around $24.75. I refuse to pay shipping, so I need to find something cheap. The only thing I can think of is OPK/HPT and I am not going there.
