Hi all! Been on vacation and then had a busy week at work when I came back. I've spent some time catching up on the general threads this morning.....Hope I caught everything :-D

Melinda...prenatal vitamins....I had my preconception appt and my dr didn't give me anything...hmmm...come to think of it, he didn't even mention anything but folic acid. Which I've been taking for over a year. I'm also taking a daily OTC multi-vitamin. I guess I probably won't get prescribed prenatal vitamins now until after I'm pg....Also, you posted about Aug (and, man, it does seem like we have a lot of Aug/Sept grads). We originally chose August because of when that would make me due. Of course we're not guaranteed to conceive in Aug, but that meant if it was Aug, it would be like May, Sept, June, Oct, July...I think you get the picture. I didn't want to give birth in winter so that I could be outside while on maternity leave :-D Starting in August meant a longer window of opportunity to give birth in nice weather!

Jamiepea.....thanks for the update! Sounds like you've done a lot of thinking, and a lot of planning, and I think your decision is made from a very mature mother's heart :-D It was good to see your name, and hopefully we'll see you around here waiting a bit :-D

Sarah....I hope bedrest is not too difficult. I never thought that sounded like fun. I'll be thinking of you and your baby!

Tammy....Good luck on the TTC, I'm sure everything will be fine! And, regarding your post about making room for an unconceived baby, I'm doing just that! We have a spare room that is our "throw" all room. I'm working on cleaning up the books and papers and scrapbooking stuff in there so if we need to be in the apartment when we have a baby, we are that much closer to having room for him/her. I think it totally shows a nesting feeling :-D

JenP....Tell your DH to back off! If you want to temp, you want to temp. It is good to be a knowledgeable and prepared mother. That includes mothering before you are even pg. Hopefully things are better now, and you're still on track for trying in Aug!

Laney....your inlaws sound just trying. Wishing it gets better for you....

Yvonne....those pics were awesome, thanks for sharing. Ian is adorable!!!

Amy....congrats on going off the pill!!!! That's a GREAT first step!
