Also... this is baby #3 AFTER a 9 year gap and lots and lots of trying and heart ache. We are over the moon excited for this little miracle and cannot wait. Big Sister is 12 and Big Brother is 9... I look forward to connecting with you all.
Welcome! I'm due Sept 7th with my second son! Hope to hear lots from you!

So I think we're officially changing the baby's name. I figured this might happen, but I'm still a little bummed. I really like the name Bennett, but my fiancé had never really been big on it. Luckily I really like the other name we have been throwing around - Samuel. Sammy for short.

My fiancé still won't commit fully to Samuel, but we've been through thousands of names, and Samuel and Bennett were the two we liked the most. So it's Baby Sammy for now, though it might change again

Samuel is a great name as well! Sometimes men can be the worst and so indecisive with names. DH keeps suggesting names and I’m like, no. We have our list!!!

Our name seems very set too. We are already calling her by it! Lol

Hi, ladies! I hope everyone had a great Mother's Day!!

Had my 21 week scan 2 weeks ago and everything is looking great! Baby is growing large(1lb, 4oz), but still on schedule for Sept. 7th, which feels soooo far away but just right around the corner. Starting to feel a lot of aches, pulls and pains. Been visiting a floating therapy center once a month for relief, it's been helpful in so many ways; especially for relaxing and focusing on just ME!

No mention of baby names, our son calls him Alexander every time someone asks him what his baby brother's name is.

The baby's room has made HUGE progress and I'm almost done! What a relief it'll be to finally have it painted and set up!

No news on our baby shower, kinda losing hope on it; but my aunt might be willing to let us use her house again. So more news on that much later!

Overall, been feeling great, he's super active loves to kick me to sleep! Can't wait to hold him in just 4 months! Eek!

Things are well here - we've got baby girl's room almost ready to go! Starting to feel super close to July haha. I am definitely getting antsy for it. Getting uncomfortable and bit and sore and being done with pregnancy haha. And the weather is getting warmer which is lovely but also hard, being pregnant. Baby girl is very active but her kicks and movements start to hurt sometimes (I still love it, it's my favourite thing about pregnancy hands down). But most positions (except laying in my bed) are uncomfortable these days which is challenging since I still need to work and generally get on with life.

Glad to hear everyone is doing well! We're doing well here too, for the most part lol. Alex just got over having Fifths Disease and I'm getting over having a cold, but I'm hoping it's smooth sailing from here on out!

We just bought the baby's car seat on Amazon and it should be here on Monday. Now all we need is a co-sleeper/bassinet and he should be all set! We're also planning on pulling Alex's old clothes out of storage in July to start washing them and getting them ready for the baby to wear. He will be staying in our room, so we're working on getting that ready too. Luckily the room is big enough where he can have his own little space and we can have ours, but we need to rearrange some furniture and whatnot, and I'm beginning to feel like we're running out of time. Yikes!

Oh yes we need a bassinet, I have one but it's a hand me down and the mattress in it is very soft and padded and I've always thought brand new babes need hard surfaces? So I hoping I either get one at our baby shower or maybe we'll buy one after, just something small and easy for our room as baby will sleep with us the first while!

I'm feeling more unready for this baby than with any of my others lol. We don't need too much, just a car seat and a crib, but it's actually getting the time with four other LOs to get stuff... not to mention the energy lol. I already have enough clothes and a stroller from my previous kids. I was also going to hand down the swing from my last baby but I think I'm going to buy another one because I didn't really care for that one. It rocked back-and-forth and I'd rather have one that rocks side-to-side. I tell ya swings are amazing for the first 3 months.

Agreed, swings are a lifesaver! Alex loved his so much and would often times fall asleep. As long as I wasn't about to fall asleep too, I let him stay there

We're trying to decide between a bassinet or a co-sleeper right now. Bassinets seem like they're usually smaller, so we would save some room, but Baby Boy is going to be big and we're not sure when we're going to move Alex to a toddler bed yet, so the crib is occupado. A co-sleeper might be the better option, but Alex only fit in his until about 5 months or so...decisions, decisions.

Hopefully we'll have Alex moved to a "Big Boy Bed" in the fall or around the holidays. I think that timing will work out...fingers crossed! LOL
