Alyssa - I am so very sorry for your loss :(

Christine - an appointment on New Year's day sounds so nice. I can't wait to hear Selin's reaction to the baby news, any idea how she will react?

Alison - I remember that first trimester tiredness! I had never been so tired in my life! Don't worry, it passes eventually. Good luck at your appointment Friday, I"m sure it will be great! :) What kind of work do you do that allows you to work from home? That's my dream!! DH works in retail so he has a different schedule than me, and at this time of the year crazy long hours. So that complicates dinner/cooking/meal planning for sure. My in-laws I think are planning to build a house now, so when they come up in January they will just rent at first. Phew - no 4 dogs in my small apartment! :)

Suzie - oh nooo! I'm so sorry you have the flu! :( Yuck! Get well soon!

AFM - I have been SO unmotivated at work lately! It's terrible, I do as little work as possible and just wait around for 5 pm! I can't get myself out of this funk. I also just feel a little tired and depressed in general, and irritable some days too at home. I have been doing FLYlady to clean/organize for about 2 weeks now and I think it's making me resent my DH every time he's even slightly messy! Ugh. Pregnancy-wise my belly has exploded lately. I have starting running into things with it, and getting "wow, you're getting big!" comments from people. I'm only 21 weeks, how big am I going to get??? Eeeek.

Suzie - Aww, sorry to hear you have the flu!! I think you should share your minibump. ;)

Erin - I do design, invites & stationery. Mainly wedding invites & stationery locally, but I also have an online store and do a lot of digital designs (gender reveal parties, birth announcements) and holiday photocards. Definitely has its pros and cons and I'm very lucky to have a hardworking hubby to support me in all ways! The downside is barely seeing him and zero income stability. And the nights spent alone, too! I have a feeling I'll go into labour in the middle of the night when he's on shift and can't get away from a fire call for 8 hours and I'm stuck calling a friend to take me to the hospital. Anyway! I think it's only natural to be lazy at this point. :) I think we need to see "how huge" you are too!!

Alyssa - So sorry to see you 'go' from our thread. :( I'm sure you'll be pregnant again soon if/when you and DH decide to try again.

AFM - Our appointment & ultrasound went perfectly!!! Saw the little flutter heartbeat. Measuring exactly how I thought (7 weeks this Sunday) and due July 28. It is SO surreal!!!!!! Couldn't believe I was actually seeing an ultrasound and the Coffee Bean is MINE!! I think I was overwhelmed because I got pretty cranky afterwards. (After crying tears of relief, of course.) Just keep staring at the picture! :) Now I'm awaiting a referral from my regular doc for an ob/gyn since the fertility doctor said he would only refer me if my regular doc didn't. Hopefully I'm done with that clinic and that d#$^&bag FOREVER!

Alyssa - I'm so very sorry you're leaving this thread. I also apologize it took me so long to update the first page but iV wouldn't let me log on all week. :-(

Alison - I will add your ticker tonight when I'm back on. Glad your first appt. went well!

I forget who asked but we just told Selin this morning. She wanted to "open my belly so she could see the baby" and then she peeked down my shirt thinking she could see into my belly. And of course she's convinced she's getting a baby sister. Hope she won't be disappointed! LOL

Christine,

Selin's reaction was so cute!  I love that she wants to see her now.  Before we had Charlotte, Fletcher was very vocal about not wanting a sister.  Now he absolutely adores his baby sister.

So quiet around here! Hope everyone is doing okay.

AFM - I am just hating work lately, can't snap out of this funk. It's Final exams week for our students and I proctor exams for students with disabilities so I am just slammed this week, going in early and staying late a lot, blah. Highlight of my day today will be leaving for a dentist appointment at 3! Whoo hoo!  My gallbladder issues are being managed okay, just have to eat very carefully and small amounts at a time. I worry sometimes because it's hard to get enough calories in a day when you're eating super healthy foods and I haven't gained any weight at all since my last doctor's appointment.

I will share a belly pic soon I think.

Alison - So cool that you have an invite business! I'm glad your ultrasound and appt went well, what a relief!

Christine - I asked! :) I love Selin's reaction, so cute! I hope she gets her baby sister. How are you feeling?

E it has been quiet around here. I am demanding a belly picture soon! come on!! I am wondering who has gender scans coming up. I am having an elective one on Sunday morning!! Cant wait! Hope this baby isnt a shy one! I am thouroughly exausted lately. Not sure whats going on lately. :/ I need a nap or I cant survive the day. lol! I signed up and got WIC today. The amount of food that they give you is nuts!! I cant believe it! They gave me 7 gallons and 2 quarts of milk a month. Then peanut butter, bread, cereal, veggies and fruits, eggs, cheese, its just crazy! I am happy to be able to have a little help. Times are tough right now. But we are hanging in there. DH and I have been struggling with deciding wether or not to make our holiday trip to So Cal and disney. With money being so tight we dont know if it is a good idea. Our tickets have already been purchased and we stay with family. But he has to take time off of work and then pay for gas and such. It just doesnt seem like the greatest of ideas. :/ I dunno what we are going to do. We may just push the trip out to February. (our birthdays) BUT we really wanted to see disney at the holidays. Blah I am sooo torn. DH really wants to go....and thinks we can make it work.

Alison- yay for a good ultrasound!  Nothing like that little flicker to make this whole thing sink in.  J

Christine- Selin’s reaction is precious.  Are you getting pink vibes from baby?  How are you feeling?  Now that Selin knows, are you announcing the big news?  Whenever you have time, will you change my ticker’s EDD to May 25?  Thank you!!

E- Sorry this week stinks.  Hopefully, the holidays will get you out of your funk.  (And the students will be done with exams, so that will help a little at least!)  I wonder if you could see a nutritionist to help you to find the right balance for you?

Mandy- I am sorry you and DH are struggling right now.  Sometimes I have those moments where I am like, dang- being a grown up and dealing with finances really bites.  DH and I are on a pretty strict budget because I would rather stay home as long as possible with baby than have extras right now.  So, anytime I’m tempted to spend money on something not necessary I think about adding to our stay at home savings account and the choice is usually easier for me.  Good luck at your u/s!

AFM- I am finally feeling like myself.  Flu and pregnancy are a really awful combination, so it was about 10 days before I started to feel better.  Its nice to finally be “out” with the pregnancy.  I announced at school right before Thanksgiving and on FB just last week.  I pulled out my maternity clothes and found out some bittersweet news.  I started this pregnancy thinner than my last so my pants are two sizes too big so I have to get new, smaller ones.  As much as I love shopping, I hate how overpriced maternity clothes are and how hard it is to find petite sizes.  I’m hoping to get some giftcards for Christmas, so in the meantime I am passing off black yoga pants as acceptable work clothes.  lol  J
