DH/SO Name/Age: Tony

LO Name(s)/Age: see signature Lol

EDD: mid-September

How Far Along Are You: about 20 weeks!

Are You Having A Boy/Girl/Surprise? Boy!

Any Appointments This Week: nope, feels like forever since my last appt but they couldn't get me in this Wednesday and Wednesdays are the only days dh can get off so we have our anatomy scan next Wed.

How are you feeling: Pretty good! I've been really tired again the last few days but DS is sick (again!) so I'm thinking maybe I have a touch of whatever he has

Something Good: Feeling baby move regularly and hitting that 20 week milestone

Something Bad: can't really complain about much this week

Any Cravings: Reeses klondike bars and popsicles Lol I keep joking that my body is craving summer...unfortunately we had some flurries this morning even so it doesn't look like that is coming anytime soon.

Any Food/Drink You Simply Can't Stand: not really

Weight Loss or Weight Gain? gain, it was 2lbs at my last appt but that was 4 weeks ago now, I sure feel like I've gained more by now but we don't keep a scale around

Anything Else You'd Like To Share? Not much, just feeling like I've been super busy lately with just random things and now we're heading into the last month of school which is busy for a variety of reasons

Random Weekly Question - Home birth, hospital birth, water birth or other? Planning a hospital birth. The month after I had my DS they installed a birthing pool but I haven't really talked to my midwives about it yet. I always wanted a waterbirth but I'm not sure how I feel about having to leave my room to go to where I'll give birth... I guess ultimately it'll probably be a last minute decision as to whether it's a water birth or not. Definitely planning on no pain meds assuming everything goes as it should.

Good luck at your scan today Erin!!! Update us when you get back! Smile

Second Erin Wink don't joke about that Lol a car delivery is my fear, I'd rather have baby at home with an ambulance on the way than deliver in the car and once I hit transition I go FAST.

Any Appointments This Week: Nothing till week. Next appt isn't till the end of the month.

How are you feeling: Tired and moody, and sore.

Something Good: The spring like weather is finally here!

Something Bad: I think I might get hit with the pelvic pains I had with my last pregnancy. Lately it's been kinda stiff/sore down there which is how it started with Hailey. I do NOT want to go through that again, it was pure hell!

Any Cravings: Nothing really. I have been kinda wanting all dressed chips, but if I bought a bag I'd probably only eat a few lol.

Any Food/Drink You Simply Can't Stand: Nope I"m good now!

Weight Loss or Weight Gain? Technically, both. I had dropped 6lbs since finding out I was pregnant, but now I'm up 2, but still down 4 lol. It's even better that I was down 10lbs since my beginning preg. weight with Hailey.

Anything Else You'd Like To Share? The warm spring weather is finally here and all the snow is gone woohoo. 13 days till Hailey turns 1, and the day after that we're going to the circus that's coming to town. 25 days till my 3D ultrasound.

Random Weekly Question - Home birth, hospital birth, water birth or other? Hospital all the way! I'm way too much of a chicken to try anything else and I feel safer in a hospital lol.

Lawn birth!? LMAO. Around here that would give my neighbours some excitment, got an old man and his dog on the one side of the road, directly across from me there's an old couple, an we got some families close by with the odd older couple mixed in. However, the hospital is just literally down the street from me, maybe a 1 minute drive, BUT that's not where I can deliver - no baby Dr in town. If I had to they'd delivery, the nurses are still there, but I have to drive 45 mins out of town to the hospital I have to deliver at. Giving birth in the car is a huge fear of mine too, I panic a bit while in labor and that would make a nasty situation I think lol. Plus my poor hubby wouldn't know what to do, he'd be too much in shock!

I think everyone has the fear that they will deliver in the car esp. when it is not your first pregnancies.

My sister was almost born in the car but my parents had just bought it so my Dad got my Mom out and she delivered in the hallway!

There was a lady on the birthing natural board (?) who had a car birth and it was an incredible story to read - that is why I was joking about that comment.

If I was worried I was going to have the baby in the car, I would alos stay home and call the ambulance!

Mandi - I really hope I didn't offend you...

Oh no, I was completely joking Smile DH and I laugh about it, but it is a big fear of mine, I always worry because honestly labor isn't even painful for me before transition so I really have to watch contractions.

Any Cravings: Sweets

Any Food/Drink You Simply Can't Stand: Not much, but I'm not tolerating lactose at all lately.

Weight Loss or Weight Gain? As of yesterday's appointment, I'm +15 from pre-pregnancy. I'm only half way through my pregnancy :eek: and only 5 lbs left on my "goal" weight. Hope I can make it the rest of the way without gaining too much more.

Anything Else You'd Like To Share? my 2 year old is driving me crazy. I just want to rest today and he just wants to play on the Wii and he can't really do it, so I end up with a controller in my hand and he keeps taking the disc out and.... :roll:

Random Weekly Question - Home birth, hospital birth, water birth or other? Our hospital has a birthing center that is FABULOUS I've used it for the other two births and I look forward to my stay there. The staff is wonderful and my doc is more like a midwife than an OB, so I'm hoping for an epidural free delivery this time. My doc said I'm not a very good pusher, so I'm hoping to try pushing from a squatting position this time so I have gravity helping me.

Appointments This Week: Anatomy scan tomorrow, appointment Thursday

How are you feeling: Like crap mostly. Pukey from about lunch time on, and very tired. Today emotionally exhausted, had a funeral today, and last night had a long drawn out cryfest/fight with DH.

Something Good: Starting to feel more movement

Something Bad: Above mentioned fight with DH. He still feels that we shouldn't be bringing someone into the world who is going to have struggles. He doesn't get the choice though, and while he is angry, he is sticking by our family. Its just going to take a long time for him to find joy in this pregnancy again.
