lilmiss, that is terrible of your mother...I'm so sorry. I can't imagine why she is so rude to your youngest child...she is a child! And her own blood...I just can't fathom that, tbh. I'm sorry you have to deal with that.

I'm excited to re-use my daughter's old clothes! Hopefully we won't have to buy any clothes.

Seems I've been away too long! Reading the posts from earlier, so much has happened with you ladies! I've had a few recent things:

Names: Well, for whatever reason the name Alexander keeps popping up. At first I wasn't completely sold on it, but it's coming around. I've paired it with the only Spanish name that both my DH and I have settled on. As of now, he's named Alexander Vicente; unless we find something that suits him better. I'm definitely loving it!

Baby Shower: We asked my in laws to host the shower at their house and they said no, they don't want a certain family member at their house. We don't really speak to them and the intention to invite them wasn't there. So now we're stuck trying to find a location. Can't express how irritating it really is.

Oh and I'm the size of a house, finally reached the point where my normal clothes don't fit comfortably any more. I tried, but it's time to finally get maternity clothes.

Hope everyone is doing good!

Lilmiss: That's so exciting that you're almost third tri! I'm getting there, slowly but surely! And that's absolutely horrible of your mother! I can't imagine acting like that towards my kids or grandkids. I have a MIL issue of my own. She is basically cold-shouldering us, which I'm okay with, but it kind of bugs my fiancÚ. There's a whole laundry list of issues with that woman. We haven't seen her since New Years (not for lack of trying on my fiancÚ's part) and honestly, I think we're better off. Although, we will be seeing her when we celebrate our son's birthday on the 29th and I'm done walking on eggshells around her. I don't want to ruin my son's birthday, but I'm not going to put up with her crap either. Ugh.

Homegrown: That's super annoying that you can't use their house for a baby shower! Did you tell them that you weren't going to be inviting that family member? If they still won't let you host the baby shower there, it's a little unreasonable.

I just got over yet another stomach bug. Alex had it Saturday and like clockwork I caught it on Monday. Stomach bugs are the worst, but I tried to stay hydrated and little man is kicking around in there, so I know he's okay. I had to miss two days of work! Alex gets sick so often (daycare kid) we've started calling him Typhoid Alex lol! Lovingly, of course!

Oh jello, sorry to hear you've all been sick. Little kids are just germ factories. Our nephew is 4 and is sick once a month I swear. Usually it's just the sniffles but still!

Third trimester today! WOW! Second tri completely flew by!

Wow, congrats! I can't wait...then again, maybe I can lol! That last month is brutal, but at least you know the baby is coming soon! I have 5 more weeks, but it feels like it's right around the corner.

Yeah, Alex is sick all the time. I feel like we've gotten most of the major ones out of the way though, like hand-foot-mouth and whatnot. Usually he either catches a cold or the stomach bug. I would rather have a cold than the stomach bug though...it's so bad every time. Luckily we are both on the mend!

Well, it's officially V-Day for me! Only 16 more weeks left until baby boy makes his appearance (give or take a few days lol)!

I feel like this pregnancy is flying by! It could have something to do with the fact that it was Alex's birthday yesterday (he's now 2!) and we've been planning a small day out and party for him for this weekend. But I think it's just going by so quick because we have other things to focus on this time around, mainly having to do with Alex. We're in the midst of potty training right now and it's actually going pretty well. He only poops on the potty now, but getting him to only pee on the potty is a struggle...usually it's the opposite lol!

I'm still having issues with my pelvis and will be talking to my doctor about it next week at my appointment. I'm just in a lot of pain by the end of the day and I think I might have pelvic girdle pain or spd. I know if it gets bad enough, they'll put you on bedrest and I'm hoping to avoid that.

jello congrats on making it to viability! That is the best milestone

I also have severe pelvic pain and will be speaking to my doctor. It's started radiating into my back and making work/driving/sitting/walking/everything very painful, and difficult...I'm really worried about making it through these last few weeks of work (my initial plan was to stop at around 36 weeks). Ugh!

Uggghhh so much this! I tried to explain to my fiancÚ that it feels like I got kicked really hard between the legs and now my pelvic bone point thing is badly bruised. It's painful almost all the time, though it definitely gets worse throughout the day.

I'm planning on working for the entire pregnancy if I can, but I know what we plan and what happens rarely ever match up lol. I worked with Alex up to a week after my due date.
