Tomorrow is my ultrasound. And of course I'm a nervous wreck today. I've had tons of symptoms today but not sure if they are pregnancy related or stress related. It doesn't help with my DH's job and I've been trying not to stress about everything but it's hard. I told myself when I got pregnant this pregnancy would be stress free and the news of DH's job came about a week later.  Anyway as long as all goes good we'll be telling the family tomorrow after the ultrasound.

Name/SO Name: Amy and Rob.

How many weeks are you? 3 weeks 5 days :smileyhappy:

Any exciting dates/appointments this month? I am calling the clinic on Monday. Then once I know when I am going to the clinic I will call the new OB I want to see for an ultrasound and see if they will do a VBAC with me. If not then once I know how many are in there that will decide whether I stay with this OB or go to a midwife here who is willing to do VBACs.

Do you feel like you will go early or late? I REALLY hope I go late! I do NOT want an early baby again! Although having a baby on my wedding anniversary would be fun since the twins were born on our dating anniversary lol!

How are you feeling physically? Yucky lol. Lots of nausea, I have thrown up twice already. I am exhausted. I have this gross metallic taste I cannot get rid of.

How are you feeling emotionally? Over the moon. I am so excited and happy to be pregnant. Terrified. Praying so hard this works out!

What's on your to-do list to get ready for baby this month? Nothing. Too early yet. :smileyhappy:

Do you know the gender yet? If not, are you thinking pink or blue? We are teem green but I would be happy either way. I love our girls name, but I would also love another boy. So we'll be happy either way! :smileyhappy:

**What tricks have you used to stay cool while PG in this unbearably hot summer? Staying inside with the A/C on LOL!

CassieJune: I can't remember if I said congrats, but congrats!! So excited for you. H&H 9 months. The nutrionist is fine. I pretty much pay her 80 bucks an hour to look at my numbers, tell me they are fine, but going high, to eat more fruit (which I already know) and most likely I am going to have to go on a higher dose of meds. I am on a 2.5mg dose of glyburide at night, so I am sure she will add another 2.5mg during the day. My numbers are okay, but they tend to be higher. I am cheating a bit and I know I shouldn't but it's so hard. having to go through all this stress of the house remodel (see below) and since I stress eat with sweets it's no good. I really need to crack down. but like tonight I was good and I ate 1 taco with mostly meat, cheese & spinach and a small bowl of grapes and I was at 134 and I need to be below 130. so I don't know...ugg! So hard to tell.

Sandy: good luck with your ultrasound. I am sure everything will be fine, especially if you are feeling pregnancy symptoms.

Amy: Congrats! I So can't believe you are pregnant again!! are you freaking out. I know I would be totally freaking out if I was going to have four kids all young ages. But I wish you a H&H 9 months as well!

Jules: Hope you are doing well. I can't believe how far along we are

Elyse: GL on Monday and I hope he makes his way before monday can't wait to "meet" him.

Ash: I seriously can't believe you are 36 weeks! Where has the time gone??? I wanted to let you know it's still freaking warm here in MN. I wish I was in Germany with you. I am SO DONE with this weather.

Waving hi to everyone else!


AFM: I am so freaking stressed out!! OMG. Our remodel which was supposed to be done back in February is STILL not done. the past three weeks not much has been done, just a few minor things. I left message, emails called the owner etc and I FINALLY got ahold of our main project manager on Tuesday morning, he said he was on the phone with the carpet guy and would call me back, 3 hours later I still didn't hear from him. WTF. So i had to call him back. He "said" that we would be getting our front door, garage door, HVAC/AC and electrical all done next week or the week after. I will believe it when I see it. I am so so so so afraid to get my hopes up. We are having a birthday party for Gabby on the 18th and we were HOPING it would be done but I really don't think it will be. but we will see. I need to hope right???

I worked some things out with my boss for my maternity leave. I will be taking off 11/20 (or earlier depending on baby) until 1/7. I will come back for 1 day and then off for four, so I can start accuring PTO and go in the hole a week. I can't do that while I am still considered on "leave". Then I will work 2 days the following week and home for 3 until I go back full time. So I will be off a full 7 weeks and then part time for 3 until I get back to work or something like that. Luckily since I am now a full time telecommuter, DH and my parents will work out a schedule until 2/4 when the baby can start daycare to be at home with her and I will be able to nurse her part of the time. I it will be so nice to be home. I am so glad I am able to work from home. Now if this remodel will just finish up so I can get my permanent office set up.

I am but not for the reason you think. I am really just worried about having another miscarriage. I am thrilled to be pregnant and at this point, after having had twins, I don't think it's going to be as big a change as going from 1 to 3 was lol. Unless it's twins again, then, yes! Going to freak out! lol!

CassieJune - I don't guess we have officially "met" on the board! H&H 9 months to you!!

Elyse - Hope that boy makes this easy for ya!

Jess - we are nearing that 3rd trimester!!! I'm glad you got your mat. leave sorted out. I also feel you on the renovation DRAGGING ON FOR ALL ETERNITY.

Ash - You are so close and those nice, moderate temperatures are making me JEALOUS.

Sandy - KUP on your u/s today! I'm sure everything is great!!

Amy!!!! Congrats!!

AFM - I'm so cranky and generally over everything right now! Pregnancy generally treats me like a bad dog and this one has been no different. I will be delighted when November shows up and this little girl makes a happy and healthy appearance. She still doesn't have a name - it's getting to be a source of much humor with the kids. They will suggest something wild and crazy just to see the reaction on our faces! Other than that, the kids are stir crazy and ready for school to start (ME TOO) and we are still working on our old house to get it ready to sell. I'm sort of ready to murder DH for not letting more of it go to contractors, but what can I do? The man makes his mind up and it's just done. I told him that I refuse to continue the weekend commute in my third trimester and after the baby is born. I hope it lights a fire. I want that house GONE.

Jules - Happily married and Momma to DS, DD and expecting our Caboose Baby 11/24/2012

Here is a picture. Also finally told family. Sent email/text with David wearing a big brother t shirt. different picture than on here. he's actually smiling. I may change the picture on my siggie to that one instead but I don't know where they are on the computer,  so I will have to get the camera.  It will be the same pic when we announce on FB. We only told grandparents, my aunt and my brother. My sister in law has a big mouth.
