DH/SO Name/Age: Bruce, 32

LO Name(s)/Age: See siggy, too lazy to type it all out lol

Any Appointments This Week: U/S tomorrow at 12:30pm EST. Montly next Friday.

How are you feeling: Tired and irritable!

Something Good: Morning sickness is all gone and I don't get queasy very often anymore.

Something Bad: When my dad called to wish me a happy birthday I told him that I'm pregnant and got a few not so nice comments. I got "You need to put a lock on those things" and "I thought you didn't want anymore kids" AND THE KICKER "Question is can you afford another one?" UGH.

Any Cravings: Nothing really although the other week all I wanted with our suppers was baked potatoes loaded with margarine and onion powder! I couldn't help it, they tasted sooooo good! Hubby bbq'd hotdogs/hamburgers and I made him bbq a few potatoes with it just for me. :drool: :drool:

Any Food/Drink You Simply Can't Stand: Nope, I can pretty much eat/drink everything now, just in small quantities or I end up donating what's left to someone else or eating/drinking it later.

Anything Else You'd Like To Share? Nothing much really I don't think.

Random Weekly Question - Are You Showing Yet? Being a plus sized person I usually think I show around the 29th week or so. However, last night hubby told me that my belly is bigger and I'm starting to show. I said no I'm not, I'm not even half way yet, no way I can be showing, he said well you are. Good thing we're telling people this weekend because people will be able to figure it out soon. To me, I'm NOT showing, but he says I am and he says it's NOT because he knows I"m pregnant he's saying it. He also says I'm carrying kinda high at the moment, which is how I was with both girls, always high. Hmmmmm!

Yay on both! This one didn't seem officially "good" until I heard that hb, even though I had other indicators that it was going well.

Your Name/Age: Mandi

DH/SO Name/Age: Tony

LO Name(s)/Age: see siggy

EDD: 9/17-9/21

How Far Along Are You: about 18 weeks...I think, I guess I don't really keep track, need to see my ticker Lol

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

Any Appointments This Week: nope

How are you feeling: pretty good, I've been having a good amount of heartburn in the weekends, which is scary this early...I can't imagine once I'm out of room what it'll be like.

Something Good: Baby's kicking a lot harder the past week! Pretty happy about that

Something Bad: Seems like one thing after another is pushing back baby purchases. Fixing my van and now we have to replace our garage door and dh's truck too! The IRS is still holding up our taxes (and we filed in early Feb.), and I was hoping to do spring/summer shopping for the kids soon so now rather than coming out of our taxes we'll be paying for that too. Just irritated...

Any Cravings: twice baked potatoes, popsicles, Dairy Queen blizzards

Any Food/Drink You Simply Can't Stand: Well, I really haven't felt like a lot of the 'heavier' dinners lately, trying to think of lighter stuff is tough

Weight Loss or Weight Gain? 2lbs gain so far

Anything Else You'd Like To Share? Think I about covered it. It's DD2's and DH's birthdays as well as Easter this week so we're very busy.

Random Weekly Question - Are You Showing Yet? Lol I am definitely showing, but I still am not sure it's completely obvious to strangers. I saw someone I went to school with at the grocery store and we talked for a good 15 minutes about my kids but she never asked if I was pregnant Lol I'm normally thin so I'm sure she either suspected I am pregnant or thought I've just gained a ton of weight since we've been out of school. Though someone I don't know at all when I went to vote with the kids at the beginning of the month said "Number 4?!", so maybe it depends on my outfit? DH joked last night that "Your baby's showing", so he must really be noticing lately.
