Hi girls! Here is your October chat thread. Talk about anything you want: fears, worries, concerns, people's annoying comments and reactions.... you name it. Ready.... go!

Here's a question to get you started: Are you on the yellow or green team? Finding out baby's gender, or not?

Hi, Ashley. I’m feeling great, thanks! So I gather you’re waiting for your insurance to kick-in so you can go get your US and find out the gender? I’m a planner, too. We’ve found out with all of our kids, and it’s been so fun to bond with them and call them by name from about 20 weeks on. I’m excited for you, and can’t wait to find out what you’re having!

Hi, Kelly. How exciting! I can’t wait to hear what you’re having! Your little ones are SO cute. We also have three older kids. They look like siblings, but are all so different, from physique to coloring to personality…and I am SUPER curious to see how this little one will fit into the mix! Looking forward to your post tomorrow.

Don't apologize! It's great to get to know you better! The only "bad" thing is, it leads me to want to write my novel in return! I'll spare you for now, since I really want to save it for when I can refer to my baby as she or he, but you're in for it!

Thanks for the compliments on my kids -- I can see differences in them for sure, but they do REALLY look like siblings!

HI Everyone,

Kelly, how exciting about the gender scan! I can't wait to hear! I am a green teamer so I like to live vicariously through others when the gender is announced.

Ashley, I'm glad you got some validation about movement. I'm feeling it too and have been for a bit but just today got the 'for sure' movement. It's such a nice feeling and makes the pregnancy feel so real! I can't believe the insurance nightmares in the states. I hope you get your u/s soon.

As for me, I'm on day 19 of bed rest and counting. I am still bleeding daily and they can't figure out why. My placenta actually went from completely over the cervical os at 14 weeks to not at all over the os and just low lying at 15w1d. You'd think that'd be great news, but with the continual bleeding and constant bed rest it's hard to celebrate. The baby is doing great though which is a relief.

Tomorrow is my bro's wedding and I was cleared to go to it so long as I opt out of the wedding party and just sit. I'm still technically 'in' the wedding party, but won't be going to pictures - just resting in between and leaving right after the dinner. I am stressed about it because the last thing I want is more really heavy bleeding episodes and I know I'll spend half of the day worrying about that happening and the other half of the day in the bathroom checking to see if it's happening. After tomorrow it's back on bedrest until at least my next appointment November 4th. If things haven't changed by then I foresee even more bed rest! AHHHH! I'm going to lose my mind.

Anyways, sorry for the novel. I'm glad to read all of your updates!

So, I was going to do some dramatic thing with the spoiler tool, but my little BOY made no secret of his gender, so I guess I won't either!
