How Is Your Appetite? pretty good, getting smaller as the belly gets bigger though

How Active Is LO? he's definitely active, not quite as active as my DS1 was but he's pretty cooperative and predictable when it comes to moving, which is nice because so far I haven't had any of those 'baby hasn't moved in a while' scares without him reassuring me pretty quickly.

Well, I really dislike feeling like I can't do everything for myself. Not being able to get comfortable, feeling like I can't even think about food without getting heartburn Lol I have been starting to get the 'you look like you're ready to pop' comments lately too, which is irritating to say the least

How Far Along Are You: 28 weeks Wednesday!

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

Baby's Name? *If you're willing to share*: At this point I think she's going to be nameless forever :(. We went through baby names again last night and after going through the list starting from C we came up with ONLY 1 name that we both thought was alright :(. so many cute girls names and we can't really agree on anything. Sigh.

Any Appointments This Week: Yes, prenatal appt Thursday.

How are you feeling: Sore, Tired and hormonal!

Something Good: 28 weeks this week, we soon get to know who we buy for, for the exchange and Canada Post is back to work!!!! Yahoo

Something Bad: I get lots of contractions and had lots on Saturday that made me consider going in to get monitored. They settled but still there was alot of them. I have a feeling that Thursday when I tell her about the bad RLP and now the constant every day contractions, she's gonna do like last time, put me on moderate bed rest and tell hubby and the kids they have to take over doing mmore work around the house :(.

How Is Your Appetite? Eh. Some days I eat quite a bit, other's not much. Depends on the day I suppose. I kind of hate not eating because I fear that she's not getting enough, but I was the same way with Heather & Hailey and they were fine when they were born Smile

How Active Is LO? Some days it's none stop action, other's she's quiet. Oh and when you're trying to get her to move for an ultrasound she's very stubborn Lol

Weight Loss or Weight Gain? I haven't stepped on the scale yet, but I suspect I'm still down at least 5lbs. Haven't really gained/lost just staying the same. Be interesting to see how much I weigh after having her, was down a good 20lbs after Hailey was born :eek:

Anything Else You'd Like To Share? We bought baby girl a cute little dress on Saturday. It's size 0-3 months but not sure, she might be too little when she's born to wear it so I may have to wait till later on, but hoping not. It's really cute and despite not knowing how big she'll be, I couldn't resist buying it lol. I'm happy that our postal strike has ended, I ordered a nursing bra online for a really good price and I'm anxiously awaiting it's arrival so I can see if it's any good and possibly buy another one, and maybe buy another, non nursing one, once all is said and done. We're also going to paint our bedroom and it's going to sorta be 'girlish' colours, it's called Radical Raspberry and has a light pinkish trim. It'll be perfect to have her in our room with those colours, be kinda like a nursery, just with the parents lol.

Random Weekly Question - Besides the typical annoyances of people's comments, actions, etc, what else annoys you while pregnant? Smells, etc

My husband. Seems when he eats he bites too hard or something so his teeth clank together. When I"m not pregnant it's not 'so' bad however, when I'm pregnant I seriously dread him eating ANYTHING. I feel so bad, but I sometimes make remarks his way, because I just can't tolerate it :(.

My hormones. Hubby and I got into a small argument Saturday morning when we left home, and instead of me just being me and firing back comments, I tried to do that, but ended up crying, and it was over the silliest of things too. I think I cried a good half hour off and on, and felt rediculous, but it was hormones talking and I just don't deal with anything well while pregnant.

3 letters: M - I- L. Nuff said.

Anything Else You'd Like To Share? I had a huge weigh gain this week (>5 lbs) and it doesn't seem to be going down. I'm not noticing swelling and my BP is still 100 (or less)/60 so I'm not too worried but I can't wait until we get our new insurance card this week so i can make a appointment.

Any Appointments This Week:Thursday morning

How are you feeling:Good. Actually have pretty good energy. LOVE summer break! Get to play outside a lot. Being outside makes me a lot happier.

Something Good:DH will be home TOMORROW! I have missed him so much. He's been gone for 6 days to his 20 year class reunion. On Thurs. we get to go to the Dr. and then shopping and lunch for our anniversary, which was Friday and he was gone.

Something Bad:DH has been gone for 6 days. Being the only one to care for Kelly has been frustrating. I appreciate having someone else take over when my patience is running short. I feel bad that I lose it with him sometimes because he is just being a toddler.

How Is Your Appetite?Not great. When I am alone, I tend to have a pretty poor diet. I HAVE to eat breakfast, but other than that, I just snack throughout the day. Lately I have been only eating pasta salad for lunch. :oops:

How Active Is LO?pretty active. I am getting some body parts in the ribs at the moment.

Weight Loss or Weight Gain?Still -1 from pre-preggo. Going up slowly...YAY! I gained most of my weight with Kelly in the last month of my pregnancy, so I am sure the same will happen.

Anything Else You'd Like To Share?I just saw a chipmunk climbing on our wall. Maybe that is what has been chewing on our garage door weather stripping.

Random Weekly Question - Besides the typical annoyances of people's comments, actions, etc, what else annoys you while pregnant? Smells, etcKelly throwing his food on the floor. I am getting really tired of cleaning it up.

I just can't get comfortable in any position... standing/sitting/lying down, etc. I'm really not feeling well these days. Low blood pressure is giving me a lot of trouble (prone to passing out, exhaustion, etc.).
