    I actually have an anterior placenta too but apparently it doesn't impact his ability to nail me in the ribs LOL I think he swims in there. I'm sure I'll miss it a bit but being pregnant isn't my favorite thing on earth.

    ALL week we've had to wake Evan up for daycare. Today no daycare up at 630. AHHH LOL

    Katie - Isn't that the way of things with kids? They never sleep in when they're supposed to.

    Mary - Hope you have fun dress shopping this weekend with your SIL! That will be fun!!

    Virginia - Glad DH isn't working so many crazy hours!

    Laura - That is INSANE! And so sad that family members have to make Claire's first holiday a PITA!! Ugh. I'm sorry that they're being like that, but I'm glad you guys are sticking to your guns and not letting them guilt you into anything.

    Lauren - Hope AF is gone soon for you!! Just think, only a few more of them and then it's TTC time!!!! It will be here before you know it.

    AFM - I haven't been sleeping well (tossing and turning, weird dream woke me up last night, etc.), so I am tiiiiired. I'm supposed to run today, but that is about the last thing I want to do! Haha. I should just go do it. I'll probably feel better when I do. At least I managed laundry today.

    Katie - LOL about Evan... Kids are evil like that, hahaha... I don't remember the last time I was well-rested, and I fear it will be a long time before I get quality sleep again.

    Jen - Did you go for your run? I wish I had the motivation to run or something, but by the time I'm done with work everyday, I am sooo lazy. But I'm usually running like a chicken with my head cut off at work, so that's gotta count for something? No... Probably not, haha..

    AFM - Sunday, I think we're taking the boys to a farm with a pumpkin patch, hay rides, mazes (made of corn, maybe), etc fun fall stuff. My parents are going to meet us there.. Should be a fun time.

    Cal is getting around well. He recently learned to sit up on his own without having to use his hands and sit in the tripod position... And it's so funny, when he sits up with no hands, he is SOOO proud of himself. He grins and coos/squeals loudly while waving his hands around like, "Look mom, no hands!" Too cute. He's all over the place and is officially getting into things he shouldn't be... Like the fireplace (we never have it on) and DH's playstation, LOL. Now I'm constantly having to keep TWO babies out of things they shouldn't be messing with. Fun!

    Sleep here is good...I mean I'm a pregnant lady but Evan always sleeps well (even if he doesn't wake up on "school" days and gets up at 7 on home days!). I should enjoy while I can!

    I just set up pictures for family/evan's 2 yr/newborn. For the Evan/family pics we'll have to be inside....probably at home....I don't know what to do to not look like we're sitting in our living room. Any suggestions all you picture people?

    Hah... I wish I could say the same. Sean sleeps great, and has for a long time.. Probably since he hit about a year old, just guessing. But even as a baby, he went longer without eating at night, and started that earlier on. Cal still likes to eat 1-3 times throughout the night. I've made it a habit of taking a freshly pumped bottle of milk to bed every night since new milk is supposed to be good for 6-8 hours out of the fridge. That way I already have one feeding ready and don't have to run downstairs to the fridge (or wait for DH to do it).

    Mary - Oliver sits, too (mine are always early at that) but when he does the hand waving in excitement he sometimes falls over. So we're still piling pillows behind him. Since he can't crawl he stays put. GL chasing 2. It's busy!

    Katie - glad you're still getting some sleep. Enjoy it.

    Jen - how are you feeling today?

    sorry if I missed anyone.

    AFM: yesterday was crazy. In the morning I was getting all the boys ready to take Raymond to school and, of course, just as we were heading out the door Oliver did a huge, explosive poop. So I changed him, got all the kids in the car and... it wouldn't start. The kids had turned on (and left on) the interior light and drained the battery I finally took out the bulb because the car leaves the interior lights on for a little bit after closing the doors, so it's hard to tell when it's actually on. Anyway, the ILs came and took Raymond to school then helped jumpstart the car. Then I took Alex to his class then picked up Raymond and walked home. Whew. Then we had the afternoon. I got Oliver asleep, tried to get Alex down. he asked to poop on the potty. he tried, but was just using it to delay and threw a fit when I put him back in bed. He woke Oliver, so two were crying. Meanwhile, I asked Raymond to clean up his markers. While I was back up dealing with the little guys Raymond colored all over the table and then peed his pants while sitting on the couch. Then threw a fit when I wouldn't change him (he knows how and I had the other two to handle). Finally got Alex down and let Raymond watch a little kids' TV after he got changed. When they both stopped crying Oliver finally stopped. Whew. Then we had Raymond's back-to-school picnic that evening. Fortunately, that went pretty well. Anyone still want 3 kids?

    Hi Everyone

    Mary - Your feeding plan for night sounds great. Congrats to Cal on sitting.

    Virginia - Sounds like a pretty crazy day, hope you had a relaxing night.

    *AFM*

    Been a pretty busy week, and the weekend isn't going to be much better, thanksgiving weekend here, we go to my parents tomorrow and host DH's family here on Sunday. At work we have a convention we are getting ready for next Friday so I decided to work the holiday Monday. I do get a long weekend without the kids in 2 weeks for a mini-vacation with DH so it is worth working now.

    I decided to try and go a week without eating refined sugar, I only slipped up once on Monday when my mom brought in some apple crumble to work. I finish up tomorrow afternoon, should be easy, I am very proud of myself.

    Went to Natalie's parent/teacher interview on Wednesday, she is doing well and fitting in with her class. The teacher finds her a wonderful student.

    Mary - I did go for my run! But I so wasn't feeling it and quit after a mile! I ended up getting Owen out of the stroller, and he walked the whole second mile back to the beginning of the path!! Granted, it took us ten years because we had to stop and look at every rock, stick and squirrel , but he still walked it. Yay for Cal sitting!

    Virginia - I feel fine! Aside from being pretty tired, I feel totally fine. Boo. I felt like I was going to puke all day on Wednesday, but I've been fine since. My chart is ticking me off, too. Just not feeling it this month! LP temps are weird, I feel like? I don't know. It's annoying me and I already feel like I'm going to be getting a BFN in a few days! And what a day you had! I think I would've thrown the towel in after the car didn't start.

    Amanda - Glad Natalie is doing well in school! That's awesome you've given up refined sugar for a week! It's in everything, I can imagine how hard that is. Happy Thanksgiving to you!

    Katie - Yay for setting up your photographer! Are you doing the newborn/family pics at the same time? I would say do it in your home because it's a natural setting, but you don't necessarily have to be "sitting in your living room" or anything. There are lots of other places you can incorporate... like the bedroom, etc. It all depends on what you're looking for in pictures!

    AFM - Well, read my comment to Virginia above, and you'll see my AFM. Sooo not feeling it this month.

    ETA: I looked back at my chart with Owen, and at 6dpo (like I am today) I had a PLETHORA of symptoms! Backache, cramps, bloating, dizziness, sore boobs, fatigue... I feel like I have just about NONE of those! There is no way I could be pregnant!

    Jen - I'm still crossing fingers for you!! Thanks for the suggestions. B/c NB pics can take so long we're going to do one sitting for the NB (while Evan is at daycare or with Daddy) then another family/2yr old session. I didn't get NBs with Evan and I wish I did for about $100 it seems worth it to me! Bedrooms are a good idea too. I wish we could go to a park or something but it just seems unlikely in Dec! I MIGHT try a few pics in the front yard with Evan if the weather is decent enough but I don't think we'll want the baby outside that long. I may also see if we can get a picture of our family AND dogs out on the deck. Crazy but I really want a full family photo!

    Amanda - YAY on Natalie being such a good girl! She sounds like a great little girl

    Virginia - Life is crazy in your house I can relate though most my crazy revolves around wrangling 10 dogs and 1 toddler LOL Did I mention we're now fostering a 6 mo old puppy? haha DH is THRILLED with that one He's a wild man but very sweet.

    Mary - I hope Cal starts sleeping more soon! Must be exhausting. I'll be there soon

    AFM - nothing too exciting. I'm taking Evan to a dog adoption event today. Oy that could be great or totally horrible. If he's in a good mood and ok with me being distracted a lot he'll be fine. If he's feeling needy and doesn't want to stay in one place he'll be a disaster and we'll have to head out early. But that puppy I mentioned I'd REALLY like to get adopted so I want to try and go! I kind of committed to 2 more dogs in a couple weeks so I'm going to be a creek with DH if this puppy isn't adopted before then! Being a puppy USUALLY they get adopted quickly which was my thinking but you never know. DH will want to strangle me if we add 2 more to the 10 we have.....

    LOL... Me! The fever has been at fever pitch lately, lol. With my two good high school friends both having babies within the last month, my college roommate just found out yesterday she's having a girl, a girl I went to elementary/HS with just found out yesterday she's having a girl, a couple that went to my HS (they were high school sweethearts) and ALSO went to the same college as me (she's a pharmacist too)... They just announced that she's pregnant with their second baby. OMG, I'm losing it with the baby fever over here. And every time we DTD, I imagine fertile signs (usually O pain) for the following 24-hours, LOL.

    Amanda - Glad Natalie is doing well at her school! I keep trying to decide if I want to send Sean to preschool. I'd like to, but it's SOOOO expensive... A woman that I work with sends hers to the place I'd probably send mine (it's right down the street and we get a discount through work).. She sends her DD only 2 or 3 half-days a week and it's still like 1K+ per month. I have trouble wrapping my head around that one when I have free childcare at home, haha. But I do want him to have some time with other kids to learn social skills and all that. I dunno...

    Katie - Good luck with the dogs! I am forever impressed by your ability to wrangle SO many dogs! I can't handle the one I have, hahahaha.

    Jen - You never know! 6dpo is WAY early to feel symptoms, assuming the fertilized egg takes at least that long to implant... Probably longer. I knew I was pregnant before my BFP with Sean because of one symptom... A deep, ANNOYING tingling in my nipples starting at I think 8dpo. I had never had anything like that before and knew I had to be pregnant. But... With Cal, I had nothing. I swear I spent the whole pregnancy with no symptoms. I never really got nauseated, never felt him move much, no weird nipple tingles, nothing... So you never know!!!! Can't wait to see what your HPT says!

    AFM - Just waiting around to go look at wedding dresses with SIL. MIL should be here soon and I'll be driving the three of us, then we're meeting one of SIL's friends there too. In fact, there is MIL and FIL now. SIL spent the night here last night. Time for dress shopping!
