funny thing... i'm starting to notice that m/s is tapering off (yeah) BUT i have a HINT of heartburn already. lol! how ironic is that? ah, it's ok tho.. not BAD heartburn, just like a TEASING of heartburn.

well eddie's finally at least discussing names w/ me now. i'm still really glued to benjamin and eddie told me that he's always liked gabriel (which i do remember him mentioning before). so banjamin gabriel? gabriel benjamin? well again.. we have lots of time to discuss it. we've ALWASY had such a hard time w/ boys' names. i dont' know why. (can u relate, mare? lol!)

i have my first appointment scheduled for the 14th (which is next monday). and i'm REALLY looking forward to it. a lot of the moms on the nov expecting board have gotten u/s's, but i know i won't get one until about the 20 week mark. they have to send me to a different office for the ultrasound so... but the u/s tech there is VERY good. she's been doing u/s's for many many years, so i trust her. although i tell u what.. i can spot a boy on an u/s a mile away now :o)

oh and if u havne't guessed yet.. i'm BACK to thinking *boy* again. (lol, not knowing the sex of this baby is going to make me go insane, i swear!) i was tlaking w/ a bunch of women in the PP expecting chat room and i asked them if any of them had a *feeling* it was a girl. and a bunch of them said "yes" then said it was a boy. they assumed their *feeling* was from wishful thinking. one lady on there had 5 boys already! the others had 2 or 3 boys. eddie says it's a girl, but then again, he said that about joseph and he's ALL boy! i am assuming it's all just wishful thinking. or maybe it's because i KNOW this will be the last baby, so i'm HOPING. i'm for CERTAIN getting that mirena thing (like an IUD w/ hormones) after teh baby is born. i'm getting tired, and remember.. no more after 30 for me ;o) but seriously.. the main reason.. i am REALLY tired! i feel totally groggy all day now. i'm waiting for that second trimester burst to come pushing through here soon :o)

still no *poochy tummy*, but i can definately feel the uterus when i lay on my back and feel my tummy. it's halfway between my pubic bone and belly button. (which is right on target i assume). i still don't NEED maternity, but i wear eddie's sweats around the house or my overalls. i dont' feel *confined* this way.

wel sorry if some of u fell asleep reading this ;o) (((hugs)) and best of wishes to all! may God bless everyone! -jennie 11/04 #6

Hi Jennie,

I really like Benjamin too. I think it's a beautiful name! Lol, I guess it is going to be a long wait before you find out... :)

Good luck the 14th!

Sounds like things are going well even given the tiredness. Which I can relate too. went to bed right after dinner last night. Can't wait till my 4 day weeks. I hope you get your girl but I know you will be happy with a boy. I've been doing alot of thinking about what sex it is too but won't find out. Take care!

I think Benjamin is a really nice name. Donlt give up on choosing a girl name just yet though. There have been so many boys around this board, someone *has* to have another girl! And why not you?

Take care-- I hope the heartburn doesn't get too bad.

I love Benjamin and Gabriel both! But don't give up on girl names yet. I know you have one picked out already, what is it? I love Mia! (pronounced Meeya) and Mackenzie, Mikayla, and lots of others, lol.

I've also had heartburn from very early on, yuck. Buy lots of tums! I'm glad you're feeling ok though, and that Eddie is coming round, I knew he would.

The latest name Jason has picked is Porter Zane I think. I'm not too sure about it yet. We probably won't even discuss it again til we are on the way to the hospital. I like Max, but it was our dogs name, and he was mean. People would think I'm crazy though for naming a baby after a dog! So I guess we just wait and see, ugh. I'm glad you gave an update, its nice to know how you're doing.

Take care!!

B, i admire u SO much! i don't kow how u can work during pregnancy. i've done it and it's SO hard. although i am babysitting my 2 nieces and anotehr little girl, i still at least have the opprotunity to lay down here and there :o)

so you'r enot finding out, eh? i admire those of u who CAN wait. i remember haivng to wait w/ my daughter because the doctor i had at that time had a policy to not tell the gender. he said it was becasue of "liability issues". lol! i told him < 'please, i won't sue if you're wrong." noe, he still said no. oh well :o( that would have been the ONE sonogram i would have loved to have known about ahead of time.

well i hope your 4-day weeks come around quickly. i' sure u could really use those :o) sheesh, by that time, you'll robably already have that 2nd trimester boost! :oD how funny...

(((hugs))) -jennie

how ironic.. my newest niece's name is MIA :o) that's cute, i agree. i've got either katherine michelle or jeny michelle for a girl :o) i'm SET there! i've had jeny michelle since eddie was conceived (#4), but still havne't had the opprotunity to use it. we'll see :o)

hey i think parter zane is cute too :o) it's different! what about naming the baby jason? i like jason. i've alwasy liked "J" names tho (if u can't tell already). jason zane? jason luke? porter jason?

oh yes.. i had heartburn w/ all the boys too. it jsut kind of differed on WHEN i got it. w/ jonahton, it was later on and it was on occasssion. w/ eddie it was CONSTANT! i can't quite recall how bad it was w/ the other two tho :o) but i do rememeber carrying a huge bottle of tums w/ me everywhere and taking 4 each night before i went to bed because that's when it was worst!

well good luck on finding an appropriate name! sending (((hugs)) and ~~~~easy labor vibes~~~~ -jennie
