Name/SO Name: Christine/DH

How many weeks are you? I'll be 18 weeks on Monday.

Any exciting dates/appointments this month? Big u/s on the 18th! First glucose test tomorrow, boo.

Do you feel like you will go early or late? Hoping for right on time like last time.

How are you feeling physically? My belly is starting to ache if I'm walking a lot or on my feet a lot. Isn't it a little early for that? :-P

How are you feeling emotionally? The pgcy hormones have kicked in this week. I was feeling weepy the other day for no reason and actually cried myself to sleep that night. And I have my moments where DH just irritates the heck out of me, lol.

What's on your to-do list to get ready for baby this month? Hopefully find out the gender!

Do you know the gender yet? If not, are you thinking pink or blue? I have no clue!

Any exciting plans for Valentine's Day? DH and I aren't big "Hallmark holiday" fans and my birthday is 5 days before V-Day so it's usually a joint celebration anyway.

Name/SO Name:  Mary/Joe

How many weeks are you?  8 weeks, 4 days!

Any exciting dates/appointments this month?  I am scheduled for the new Harmony blood test (for chromosomal abnormalities) on 2/13 and the NT Scan on 2/26.  I'll be glad when all of that is behind me and we have good results.

Do you feel like you will go early or late?  I think I may go a little late this time, just because I think my due date is a little early based on when I know I ovulated. 

How are you feeling physically?  I'm feeling much better than I did with my last pregnancy at this time.  However, I'm still feeling the occasional food aversion and definitely fatigued at times.  Other than that, I feel pretty fat and bloated.  I will be glad when I have a true baby bump.  :)

How are you feeling emotionally?  I'm tired of having to hide the fact that I'm pregnant from friends and co-workers.  I'll be glad when we spill the beans to everyone next month.  I'm nervous about how my 2.5 year old is going to handle a sibling.  He's definitely king of our household now!

What's on your to-do list to get ready for baby this month?  Nothing, really, other than trying to keep squeezing in my regular clothes!  I might pick up a few pieces of maternity here and there.  I think I'm going to show a lot quicker this time.

Do you know the gender yet? If not, are you thinking pink or blue?  Nope.  I'm thinking pink, but will accept blue again.  :)

Any exciting plans for Valentine's Day?  It's all up to DH!

Name/SO Name: Suzie/Joe

How many weeks are you? 24

Any exciting dates/appointments this month? Just a regular one on 2/13.  It may be my last monthly one though since I am rapidly approaching 3T!  (Holy cow!)

Do you feel like you will go early or late?  DS came 2+ weeks early, but I've decided this PGcy is nothing like my last.  So, we'll go with LATE!  ;)

How are you feeling physically?  Great- practically no complaints right now!  I love 2T!  I also have been doing yoga which I must say really helps stretch me out and ward off aches and pains.  I highly reccommend it!

How are you feeling emotionally?  All over the place!  Hormones stink!  hahah

What's on your to-do list to get ready for baby this month?  Look for a glider chair and a few little things.  Maybe do a little clothes shopping!  :)

Do you know the gender yet? If not, are you thinking pink or blue?  PINK!

Any exciting plans for Valentine's Day?  DH and I are having an overnight at the beach the weekend after Valentines.  We're excited to get away and didn't even realize it when we planned that it was anything other than President's Day weekend! 

Mary- So glad to hear your appointment went well!  9/9 is my anniversary, so its a great EDD.  :)

Christine- Only a few weeks until your u/s!  I'm glad you are probably finding out because I'm curious!  lol  I'm so impatient.  I always want to immediately give people the gifts I buy for them instead of waiting for the birthday/ wedding/ Christmas. 

AFM- I kinda have plan for maternity leave.  I decided I would rather wait a little longer to be a SAHM.  We are doing great with saving money and have put ourselves in a good place.  If I stay home now, we'll be scraping and scrimping and I would rather save more money and wait for DH's next promotion and SAH when we can do so comfortably.  Also, after going a year with our house empty, we know that too much our financial situation could change easily if our house goes unrented/ unsold again.  Anyways, I will use my personal/ sick days at the end of the year (if baby comes around my EDD, there are only 10 days of school.)  Then I will use my FMLA to take 8 weeks at the beginning of the year.  All in all, I will get to be home for about 4.5 months, which is not too bad.  My principal also has agreed to flex my schedule to come in later in the day, so I can help DH with morning craziness.  She also shared that its her dream to have an onsite daycare and has a meeting about it next week.  How amazing would that be?!?!  I'm crossing all my crossables that this works out.  I would love to be able to nurse baby sometimes instead of pump from work and omigosh!  A daycare of teachers' kids steps away from my classroom. 

-Suzie :)

Name/SO Name: Jan/Shane How many weeks are you? 6 weeks by LMP Any exciting dates/appointments this month? Yes, first appt is February 12th! Do you feel like you will go early or late? Late, but who really knows. How are you feeling physically? Tired, Hungry, Back aches, but no M/S, so that is good! How are you feeling emotionally? Decent most days. I did cry during the Super Bowl, so I don't know. That might qualify me as unstable. Haha! What's on your to-do list to get ready for baby this month? First Appt, and some new clothes. I am already outgrowing my bras and the pants are getting snug. Do you know the gender yet? If not, are you thinking pink or blue? Blue, but hoping for pink. I have all boys, and would like to have a girl. This is my last chance. Any exciting plans for Valentine's Day? Probably dinner with the hubby, which might wait until the weekend. AFM, I am afraid I am going to be huge. I have definitely outgrown my bras already, and the pants are getting snug. That wouldn't be a huge deal, but I am required to wear black pants for my second job, so I have to at least handle that. I am also wishing I could quit the second job already, but am trying to hold on.

I don't know if any of you guys remember me from WAY back in the day, but I still pop in here and watch what you all are up to, though I usually don't say anything. We are still trying to get our little girl that we are adopting home, but I found out last month that after 3+ years of not preventing, and not expecting anything... heh... I'm pregnant! Crazy right? So, by the end of the year, we will have two kids, with pretty good spacing. Even more exciting to me is that many of my original waiting to try summer 2009 group are in this forum, pregnant again! So cool, I get to live it out with you guys after all.

*If none of that sounds familiar... I used to post lots of surveys lol!

Name/SO Name: Lisa and Blake

How many weeks are you? 8 weeks

Any exciting dates/appointments this month? We had an ultrasound appointment yesterday. Everything is measuring right on, and we saw the flicker of the heartbeat, so all is well.

Do you feel like you will go early or late? No idea lol!

How are you feeling physically? Fairly good. Kind of a underlying nausea all day, that gets worse at night, but other than that, (and being tired) feeling good.

How are you feeling emotionally? All over the place :p

What's on your to-do list to get ready for baby this month? Really just take care of myself for now, and more things geared towards getting our daughter home from Ghana.

Do you know the gender yet? If not, are you thinking pink or blue? No guesses yet, but we are hoping for a boy.

Any exciting plans for Valentine's Day? On the day itself we have a double date planned with some friends to do minature golf, go carts, etc. The night before we are having a nice dinner, and then early March we are celebrating with a hockey game.

Good to see you all again, and we'll see how active I am, but I wanted to share our news with the people that first knew we were trying... back in 09.

p.s. I'll work on getting a new sig and a ticker soon, but I have to get my bearings on these forums first!
