    Mary - Good that you got your winter wear shopping done early.

    We have a hand-me down coat from a friend for Natalie, still have to get her pants though, it got really chilly Saturday so she had a chance to wear it.

    Yay for the Keurig, they seem so convenient.

    Can't believe Cal is already mobile! Where has the time gone?

    Virginia - That is just weird, maybe it is you sleeping light and waking him when you don't DTD

    Sandra - Good to have you back.

    *AFM*

    Last Thursday was probably one of Natalie's worst days, most days she is good with a couple of trying moments, her outgoing and eger personality are somethings I love about her but somethings it causes trouble. She was back to her usual self over the weekend.

    I had a crazy theory on my AF the other day, I know often if women (especially related ones) live together their cycles sync. I have a 12 year old in my house with horomones going crazy, maybe that is putting my cycle off... Told you it was crazy. Anyway still haven't heard from my family doctor or the OBGYN on when an appointment is set to talk about this. It takes up to 4 month to get an appointment I'd just like to know when sooner rather than later.

    At work today getting ready for a show in a couple of weeks. Really nothing exciting.

    Amanda, it is normal for women who live together to sync up. Or at least that's what I've always heard! Glad Natalie is back to her old self!

    Mary, horray for the keurig! I'd love one of those since I'm hte only one who drinks coffee M-F and it'd be easier to make my one cup that way instead of brewing a 2 cup pot. Glad the lump went away.

    Laura, yay for a good u/s!!

    Jen, ugh, I could use a good cleaning day like that!

    Sandra, glad you like the stroller! Hope all is going well with hubby back home!

    Virginia, interesting theory on dtd/sleep. Glad you got a good night of sleep! lol at thinking about more kids after just one night of good sleep. heh.

    AFM, DH caught the cold too, but we're all pretty much over it now. Just the end-of-cold congestion that'll pass in a day or so. Started spotting today, so AF will be here in a day or so. I didn't think I'd be, but I got kind of sad since I was supposed to be TTC this cycle and didn't want to see AF. Obviously it's good that we're waiting til Dec/Jan since I need this ct scan, but I think I'm going to be kinda bummed every O and AF until then.

    Mary - that sounds like a pretty normal day to me, actually. Told you it was a crazy feeling.

    Sandra - good luck! I hope you get the result you want.

    Lauren - hope AF is short and easy.

    Amanda - not crazy at all! My 2 sisters and I all started cycling at the same time. I think my older sister and I pulled our younger sister along for the ride because she was pretty young to start. We must have driven my mom nuts.

    just made the theory better... I bet DH is sleeping better so he doesn't wake either of us. I swear, he wakes me every time he rolls over at night.

    Just jumping in vent...

    MIL is crying and throwing a fit because we won't be there on Claire's first Christmas. WE HAVE NEVER CELEBRATED ON ACTUAL CHRISTMAS ANYWAY! THEY'RE ALWAYS WORKING! And she's mad because we're not staying until Claire's first birthday. She should be proud that we're coming up there anyway! I'll be 20 weeks pregnant, Claire will almost be 1, etc...

    I'm LIVID!

    MIL is crying because "Claire won't know her!" and DH is standing up to her saying, "Well you've only come down here as much as we've been up there!" HA! I'm SO proud of him for standing up. She's being a baby and I can't stand that. If she wants to come, then VISIT dang it! She tried saying that hotels are expensive, BS! It's more expensive for us to fly there!

    Great, after all this crap I *can't* wait for her to come this month.

    sorry she's being a pain, Laura. I'm glad DH is sticking by you and standing up to her. Have you tried offering some other holiday instead of Christmas (Thanksgiving or something) to help appease her? I'm lucky, DH's family is sort of Jewish and my family is sort of Christian, so my family automatically gets Christmas. We do Thanksgiving with his parents.

    Laura, sorry your MIL is crying over all of this. Grandparents are tricky to navigate, aren't they? We've decided not to go up for Christmas this year now that Xander's getting older and it's NOT going over well. I have a feeling we're going to have OUR house full because everyone's going to freak out and come here instead. Guess we'll see! lol.

    Virginia, sounds like you've got a good theory!! No tossing-and-turning DH probably helps everyone sleep!

    AFM, not much going on here. Xander had a fever last night, but it's gone now. AF is pretty heavy and crampy, oh joy.

    Laura - Ugh. I'm livid for you.. I've grown to hate the holidays because it always ends with an argument between DH and I over this sort of thing. It doesn't help that I usually end up having to work a holiday (Thanksgiving evening this year, yippee..). Blah. I like the holidays and the festivities and all that, but I just hate trying to divide our time when we're already strapped for time together as it is. At least your DH is standing up for you!! Mine has ZERO balls when it comes to his parents. He won't stand up to them even if they're being totally absurd. It's so beyond annoying.... He constantly walks on eggshells with them.

    AFM - SIL will be in town this weekend for wedding dress shopping and I'm going for that. I don't think I've been to a wedding since my own, so I'm excited to see the dresses and see if she picks one. It's funny... She lives in St Louis, and I bought my wedding dress there (lived in IL, so it was a relatively short drive). I live in Ohio and she's coming here to buy her dress, haha.

    Laura - ohh that sucks!! I think I'm lucky DH works the Friday after Thanksgiving so we don't go to his family's for T-day b/c it's a pain to go out and back. Christmas until Evan we spent Eve with my family and Day with his but it was a lot of running around. Once Evan was born we stopped the hauling around, Eve with my family and then Day we stay home, my family is all local so they come over and we have dinner. We go to his family before Christmas for his parent's tree trimming "party" (it's just family) and that seems to suffice. Luckily neither side throws fits in our case I don't think DH or I would tolerate that well LOL

    Lauren - sorry AF is being a witch, ugh!

    Mary - sounds fun!

    Virginia - sounds like a possible theory there Hope DH is working a bit less

    Busy here with work and house stuff and dog stuff etc. Not bad but I'm tired. The baby moves NON stop and I feel constant kicks I swear this kid wants to walk already! I'm not horribly uncomfortable which is nice but I am feeling tired of being prego.....

    Katie - I'd take a day from you if I could! I miss baby kicks so much. DH is working less this week. It's awesome. He worked something insane like 70 hours last week.

    This!! I miss it too. And Cal was so docile in the womb, not to mention I had the anterior placenta... So I barely felt him move. Boo! Our 3rd (most likely final ) baby better move a LOT, or I'll be sad! Sean moved so much, and I miss it!
