Mary- Looking back at the pics of my pregnancy with Grey, I think I am growing about the same. I did start out a little heavier with Grey, so IDK if that makes a difference. How are you feeling?

Sandy- Can you believe you are at the top of the list!??!? How are you doing? How’s your husband’s job search coming?

Melissa- I must admit, I have never heard of a turducken! How was it? Jan- Congrats! So happy to hear about your BFP! Hope you are still MS-free and feeling good!

Cassie J- Nice to hear from you! How does Ben feel about the baby coming? How nice you will have help when baby comes!

Christine- Yay for a date with your little girl! Selin must have loved the aquarium! We are trying o take advantage of those family of 3 moments, too and took Grey to the children’s museum and then had special “breakfast for dinner” (That kid loves my whole wheat banana pancakes!) yesterday. So glad to hear your MS is gone! GL on your glucose test!

AFM- We are team pink! I am so excited and was shocked! :) I have more to say, but I’m out of time to post!

-Suzie :)

Christine, thanks! Sounds like you had a fun day with Selin! I sometimes go visit at Kaeden's daycare when I have a day off. Other times, we just have a fun day! Happy to hear you are done with M/S, and I hope your energy returns soon!

Suzie, congrats on your girl! Thanks for the welcome! So far, I can barely tell I'm PG, other than being hungry all the time and slight BB tenderness. They also seem bigger already, but I assume that's from previous stretching from the two previous pregnancies.

3 weeks into the month and I can FINALLY post. I hate this site!!!!!

Name/SO Name:  Alison & C

How many weeks are you?   13w 3d

Any exciting dates/appointments this month?   Just had one on Monday.  The med student who saw me first couldn't find the heartbeat, and it was the longest 5 minutes of my life. Then my real doctor came in and found it no problem!  SO relieved!  Nice and strong at 150.  :)

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

How are you feeling physically?   Pretty un-pregnant these days. Way more energy than before, not as sore, not as nauseous.

How are you feeling emotionally?    Having a BIT of "mom guilt" because of our upcoming vacation. A part of me feels like I should be home with my feet up instead of galavanting around Europe. Even though I've had the ok to travel and will be cruising for the majority, I still worry about my energy and stamina.

What's on your to-do list to get ready for baby this month?   Nothing, just keep growing!  Yay second trimester!

Do you know the gender yet? If not, are you thinking pink or blue?   Deep down I feel blue... which makes me realize how much I wanted pink.  :S

Any exciting plans for New Years Eve/Day?   Ha!! I actually had DH home with me at midnight for once (he's a firefighter; usually works a night shift or gets called for overtime).  So we just stayed in and had our smooch and then I was ready for bed!

What would you like to accomplish this year? (in addition to having the baby, lol!)    Start and maintain a regular treadmill schedule.  I always SAY I'll use it and it collects dust for the majority. I'm in "training" for our vacation next month, LOL

Sorry I haven't been on to keep up with you ladies - sooooo not my fault. (Did I mention I hate this site?!)  But glad to see some new faces and glad the rest of you are doing well!!

Suzie - I've updated your ticker. Congrats again on the girl!! Any names picked out yet?

Alison - I've been thinking about your upcoming cruise and hope that you will really enjoy Turkey! Take lots of pics! ;-)

Hope everyone is feeling well!

My face is breaking out like a teenager, mostly on my chin area but still annoying. I didn't have breakouts until after Selin is born. Of course now I'm wondering if this means we're having a boy but I know many people have totally different pregnancies and still end up having the same gender so trying not to put too much stock into it. ;-)

Suzie- I think it was you who asked about the turducken? the turkey part was yummy, the rest was yucky lol, but I think thats just the pg hormones.... have 2 ziplock bags in the freezer, which are probably going to get freezer burnt and then tossed out... I aint eating it!

Christine- Im getting pimply too!! but it could be the weather.... its so cold and dry here, that I moisturise more than usual.... so my poor face could be producing more oil to compensate.

Im still so hungry!!!! last night I was up at 3am starving, had a few crackers, and then at 6am lol. and the queasiness started last week! its on and off....

My cat knows something is going on! she usually sleeps at the end of the bed right next to my feet, but the past couple of nights shes next to me, but closer to my tummy! good thing DH works nights, so its just the cat and I, because I have to sleep in the middle of the bed! LOL and in the mornings she sits on my lap, when I play on the computer.

I hope the hungry-ness and tiredness ends soon lol.

this thursday, Im working overnight( 11pm till 7am), going to need extra snacks and water I think! Ive been going to bed at 9am every night! lol

How are you, ladies?  It’s so quiet…

Melissa- Happy official 2T!  Hungry is how I define most of my 2T… I’ve been eating like crazy since about 16 weeks.  I eat lots of snacks all day and only full meals at dinner to try and counteract all the food!  ;)  I’m starting to not be able to eat at night again, so I guess my guts are getting cramped in there…

Christine- Thanks for updating my ticker!  We are starting to put together a list, but won’t name her until we meet her.  I went to the hospital thinking it was Sullivan’s birthday and as it turned out it was Greyson’s birthday. ;)  haha.  Sorry about the acne!  That stinks!  Do you have an esthetician?  I get my waxing done by one and get the occasional facial, but she always has great tips for me.  When is your u/s?  Are you going to find out the sex?

Jan- how are you feeling?  When will you tell Kaden about the baby?  If I recall correctly, you have an older son as well?

AFM- All is well here.  I found out that my friends (2 gay guys I lived with in college) want to throw a BBQ at my house for a baby party.  Its so sweet and I’m really excited to celebrate this with them since we were living states away when expecting Grey.  I am starting to make lists of what we’ll need to get for this baby.  We’ve decided not to start a nursery until all the guests have made their way through our house, so I don’t have a ton to do this time around.  I am so tempted to go crazy buying things… Gosh, baby stuff is irresistible! J

Suzie, I had a small bout with nausea yesterday, but overall, really good! I am tired, but other than that, I really can't complain. We told Kaeden the same day as we told our mothers. DH and I really stink at keeping secrets, so Kaeden was able to tell his daycare lady about the baby himself. Funny story, he actually told her two days before we told him. She asked and I just laughed it off as "funny". She had no idea how funny it was!! And yes, you recall pretty well! I actually have two older boys, who are 16 and 15 now. They are all three set to flip an age in April. So they will be 17, 16, and 4. Ugh, what was I thinking??? :) Wouldn't trade them for the world. And your baby party sounds like so much fun! How nice of your friends to throw you a party!

Hi all!  Had my first appointment yesterday and everything is doing well.  Saw the little heartbeat and everything.  Gearing up for the harmony test in two weeks and NT two weeks after that.

Christine - Can you change my due date on the front page?  I'm now 9/9/13.

Melissa - Too cute about your cat! When do you plan to tell your work about the pregnancy?

Suzie - I don't have an esthetician (man, that's a hard word to spell!) but I'm thinking with my birthday money I might treat myself to a facial. I wasn't sure if it was safe duing pgcy or not but sounds like it couldn't hurt! That is so sweet that your friends want to throw you a baby shower (and I can't wait to hear how two gay guys throw one, lol!) More on our u/s below. ;-)

Mary - I just setup the Feb. thread so if you don't mind, I just changed your ticker in that thread instead of having to do both threads. 9/9 would be a cool birthdate!

AFM - So our big u/s is on 2/18 and I think I'm leaning more towards yellow than green! I guess as the date draws near I'm getting more excited and one of my friends is giving away newborn boy clothes so I told her if we're having a boy that we'd take them. So I guess I also want to find out in case it is a boy and we can start gathering clothes for him. And we're going to have a terrible time finding a boy name we like! I have a bunch of girls names but no boys names. I haven't told DH about my change of heart in case I do change my mind again before the u/s so we'll see how the next two weeks go. :-)

Feb. thread is setup! Come on over!!
