Love the Thanksgiving double-up so you can do something different on the actual day. Sometimes I get two holidays if my side of the family meets after the holiday. Lots of fun and extra food! ;)

I didn't have any m/s with Tim and only a bit of nausea, so don't worry about feeling fine! Sometimes a healthy pregnancy actually feels healthy for the mother. ;)

Hi everyone!
Looks like I'll be checking in on t1 for only about another week or week and a half. So maybe I'll check in two places this month :-D I'll be 11 weeks on Sunday if you go by the u/s and Tuesday if you go my my LMP. So, whatever. Claire was born at 38 weeks anyway so I don't expect to see my due date buuuuuuut you never know.
We have our second prenatal appointment new Wednesday. DH was wanting to take a day off work and took Wednesday on a fluke. So now he gets to go with me to my appointment. Last time, he only went with me to the initial appointment and to the 20 week u/s when we found out the gender and got to see the baby on the big screen. So having him at a regular appointment will be nice.
I'm feeling pretty good. Got kind of queasy late this afternoon, but I've actually been nervous since for about a week I've been feeling fine. I'll feel a lot better after Wed's appointment. I'm not really showing much at all, although DH thinks I am looking "pregnant-er" hahaha I'm starting to feel my uterus get a little harder down there, but comments from friends like, "you look great! with my second, I popped right out!" are meant to make me feel good, but they actually freak me out. hehe I'm sure everything is fine but I'm a worry-wart. I told the staff at work, it's FB legal and my whole family knows but I'm trying to keep the news from the kids in the choir as long as possible. So far, none of the suspect, and one girl who does, isn't talking (which is a complete shock in middle school). It'll be obvious soon enough, I'm sure. :-)
Thanksgiving- not sure what we are doing! It has been at our house before, but last year we went out to a restaurant. Sometimes we do that. One year we went out to breakfast on the beach. It was a lot of fun. DH's family always gets together for the big turkey dinner, though, but on the Saturday after TG. So even if we do something unconventional like going out to eat or go to the beach, we don't miss out on a real TG dinner because of DH's family.

Big hugs and prayers for the dental visits and the dr's appt. Ben had a hydrocele for the majority of his first year but otherwise I know very little about those parts. ;) I'll be praying that there's an easy fix.

Well I'll check in to say having Strep Throat while pregnant is the PITS!! Oh man...it totally wiped me out. I had to stop taking my prenatal vitamins for a couple days because I was so sick to my stomach I couldn't eat, and taking those on an empty stomach would have just made me throw them and my antibiotics up.

I'm glad to say I'm finally feeling better today and back to work :) I'll be 7weeks on Monday and feeling very pregnant...all my pants are tight, and I have no idea where any of my maternity clothes are!! I think it's time to send DH diving in the storage area LOL.

We've got a Hayride/Bonfire thing tonight, and I'm only 50/50 on weather or not I'll go. I love this, we do it every year, I'm just not sure I should since I've been sick and it'll be cold tonight. It's just so much fun!

Got some appointments coming up for the boys and I. James goes in next Thursday the 10th to have a cavity filled, but we had to go to a pediatric dentist because he wouldn't let ours do it. So I'm not sure what they'll do here...

Then the next week on Wed. Jonathan goes in to have his testicle looked at. His left testicle never dropped, and he's now old enough for them to take a look and discuss options. Please say a prayer that they can just get it to come down without having to do surgery!

Also that same Wed. I have a root canal scheduled O_O I'm very nervous. I had my wisdom tooth pulled a few weeks ago, so this isn't the 'first' major thing to be done now, but it is the first root canal I've ever had. I've only ever had fillings prior to my extraction.

Once all that is finished, prenatal appointments begin on Dec. 13th! and then our life gets a whole new busy :)

One other thing, please say a prayer that Daniel can come with me to Jonathan's appt on the 16th. I'd really like him to be there. I'm not sure why I'm nervous about that, but I am.
