Ooh!  Ooh!  Did Liz have the baby?  Details????

Suzie and Mandy - That wait for your first appointment is the worst!!  I hope the time goes quickly for you both!!
Suzie - not sure if we'll wait to meet her to name her or not.  DH really does not want to wait.  I think he's afraid she'll be born and we still won't know.  I told him we wouldn't have a choice because they won't let us leave without naming her :smileyhappy:

Sandy - yay for gender reveal!!!  So exciting!  Cute bump :smileyhappy:

Ella - congrats on a wonderful ultrasound!  That's great news!!  I'm sure that brings a great sense of relief!  I agree that the worry is the worst part.  I'm so gald to be (mostly) past that part.  Granted the worry never really goes away, but at least it does ease a bit!

Jules - you call me relaxed and prepared...I call it denial :smileyhappy:  I'm still trying to grasp the fact that there is going to be another little person in our house!  I hope baby girl has flipped for you!!  It's okay to feel like you're not totally focusing on the pregnancy.  I think that's normal when you have other kiddos to take care of!

Erica - hi :smileyhappy:

Jessica - I keep telling myself I'm going to start freezer meals too and still haven't done it.  Oops!  I need to find a free Saturday or Sunday and just hammer a bunch out.  I found some great freezable crock pot recipes here if you're interested:
http://www.ringaroundtherosies.net/2012/02/freezer-cooking.html

Ruby - Happy Anniversary!  Do you live near Chicago?  Hope you have a great mini-getaway!  I also hate spending the money on things when I'm pregnant knowing they're only temporary (for the most part).  So far I have been able to get by with the bra extenders instead of having to get all new bras.

AFM - Our anniversary is this weekend as well (well, next Monday) so DH are having a date night on Saturday.  We're just going out to dinner, but I'm excited.  The big news in our house right now is that something must have clicked about two weeks ago with DS because he is finally going on the potty!  He is doing it regularly, staying dry all day with no accidents (with the exception of nap and bedtime.)  I might actually only have one in diapers in November!!

Sorry I didn't have time to post anything else before. I was a little busy with work. Anyway...

Liz- hope everything goes well for you.

Suz- I agree about buying things. I did have to get a new bra from Kohl's. However I got free shipping and 20% off so I only paid $19.00 for it. I am going over someone's house today to get maternity clothes from craigs list as I hate buying stuff from the store. I search it daily for maternity stuff.  I did get some good deals at Kohl's a few weeks ago. If you can take advantage of their sales. i think I saved like $50.00 or something when I bought a few things. I also got david a bunch of new fall stuff from a garage sale. I couldn't find anything for myself though.

Liz- Yay!  So excited for you!  Can’t wait to see pictures of her!

Shawn- Awesome that you’re almost finished with the nursery.  I love the name Stella, too!  Will you wait to meet her to decide her name?

Sandy- My gosh!  How are you 15 weeks already!  Hooray for this month being the month you find out the gender!  J  Sweet belly pic!

Ella- Congratulations on a wonderful ultrasound!  I’m so glad that all is well!  And what a beautiful writer you are, thanks for sharing your blog.

Jules- Hoping that baby girl has turned her head down for you!

Ruby- LOL about replacing bras!  I am the same way about spending money on temporary things!  I need new pants because mine are too big, but I refuse since I will start growing any day now.  Are you “out” now that you are hitting 2T?

AFM- I am getting a little sciatic pain.  Its not consistent, but I am wondering if its worth calling a PT now and seeing if I can get some help learning how to stretch and get relief?  Anyone have experience with this?

-Suzie :)

I know I'm not showing that much just yet but I wanted to show my belly pic that I took yesterday. I am taking a lot more pictures this time than I did last. Not weekly pics I but every few weeks or so.

Just thought I would post for those of you not on the FB WTTG page.

Liz just posted this:

 

"Heading to hoSpital. Let's do this!!"

 

Wishing Liz a speedy and smooth delivery. Can't wait to find out if it's a boy or girl!!

Ella- I used that word ravenous the other day to my friend. I am seriously the same way. I am ravenous from about 2 or 3pm to 8pm.... on and off. BUT I cant seem to eat much before I am back to that sick to my stomach feeling!! Anyways my friend said... whats ravenous!? I was dumbfounded that she had no idea what I meant.

The part that really freaks me out is that I had a sort of emergency/scheduled induction with Gabby. With her I had 2 Biophysicals on a Monday morning and my appt with my MW - she said, yep your fluid is low you need to come in tonight for an induction...so I went home finsihed some things up worked, packed up my bag, had dinner with the hubby he mowed the lawn and we got our inlaws to come pick up the dog and we went into the hospital that night at 6pm. the next morning I had gabby.

So no "is this contractions, is this BH" or Should we go into the hospital or not...is it going to happen in the middle of the night or during the day while I am in a mtg....sigh. This will probably end in an induction anyway, so I shouldn't worry about it but I do.

Pretty much exactly.  It seems never ending at this point.  And intangible.  I don't really know what to expect for whatever reason, even though this is my third baby!

Jules - I was thinking I had all this time and just going through the days and then I was talking with Christine and she says to me "You only have like 6 weeks if they induce you" and I totally was like "WTF" how did that happen. SO I am freaking out a bit because this remodel isn't done, but the babies room will be done. I am mostly worried about hte poly they have to finsih because it really makes this house smelly.

But I don't have her scrapbook started and I don't have all the meals finished I wanted to freeze. but My mom did give me a food saver (early christmas present) so I am excited to use that!! I am going to start those meals this weekend.

We are getting so close and yet it still sort of seems surreal and far away.
