Fairydust well that sounds like some good news!! I will continue to pray that your bean digs in nice and tight!!

Claire I would have to be a millionaire to feed these guys if I let them eat the way they want to.... I also know if I let them eat like that they would never eat the meals I put out on the table!! Grrrr Oh well they are not going to suffer if they wait for their snacks and meals LOL Though they complain like they are dying LOL

Good luck ladies on your scans next week! It must be the time for it as I also have one.

Donna - have fun shopping!! How exciting!

Melissa - Must of been quite a shock, please try and relax and rest up.

When I was about 6 or 7 months with #3 we were getting ready to go out somewhere. I walked out of the bathroom after doing my hair and my DH said '' Aww don't you look beautiful!! '' Well I just BURST into tears! And then of course he starts back peddling thinking that he has upset me by implying that ordinarily he doesn't think I am pretty. I then through the sobs tell him I'm not sad, I'm happy that he said such a nice thing. But to a man crying =sad! To a woman crying can mean of lots of things and In this case it was a mix of pregnant hormones, feeling awful about my self and happiness!! Haha what these men put up with!

It is Thanksgiving weekend here and we are on a little mini family vacation. My DH has been working away so I had the kids stay home on Thursday and we headed up to stay with him. We are staying in a hotel with a pool, which to my kids is as exciting as Disneyland! In the wee hours of our first night here I had to take ds 8 to the ER where they told me had croup. Quite a relief actually because I was worried it was whooping cough. So we decided to stay another night as we are only a 2 minute drive from the hospital here. Last night he was much better and feeling more himself. Thankfully my DH gets the next few days off so we are going to head home today and start defrosting our turkey. I don't have family around given that the are on the other side of the world, but I am so thankful for my own little family and all the blessings we enjoy. Happy Thanksgiving xx

We are having our dinner on Monday evening. Our whole family will not be there but a good portion. So we will be having turkey, ham and a tourtiere, then of course all the trimmings. I plan on making a Gluten Free pumpkin cheese cake pie. I am very excited about that!!

Happy Thanksgiving to those celebrating this weekend!!

thanks ladies! no more plug so far and woke up feeling fine. no back ache, pressure, or cramps. probably will take it easy til my apt Thursday and see what she thinks. of course I googled it for an hour last night and scared myself half to death which I know is not the way to go.

my 18 week bump this morning.... it almost looks smaller than my 15 week did but for some reason it looks smaller in the morning and by the evening I look twice as big. so taking the pic first thing this morning compared to my last one that was taken in the afternoon is the difference. not sure why it grows every day, but does that with every pregnancy

donna- you are so awesome for staying I cant ever wait to know!

sacha- your boys sound just like mine!!! I have to admit, im a little afraid for teenage years when I hear they eat 10X as much

Fairydust- the beginning of this pregnancy I was very exhausted in first tri. seemed even more so than usual. do what you have to to get through!

Claire- that sucks! hopefully something happens very soon!

feisty mel- don't be so hard on yourself! you're growing a human and that takes a lot of hormones

Happy Thanksgiving to the ladies celebrating!!!

I've been in a frenzy looking for a turkey, of course I left it to last minute. Well I had a good excuse. I was planning to get a deep freezer then I would have had space to put it (the deep freezer was long overdue) but it didn't come until Friday. Went to Walmart last night, sold out, 3 different supermarkets, sold out! As luck would have it, my son pissed of a neighbor by trampling a couple of his already dead flowers that border our property, and I lost it (last week a neighbor tried to hit him & called police on him & that neighbor shouts racial remarks at my kids & black members of our family) so I just literally lost it. I started screaming, I told them no one is playing outside or riding bikes or doing anything, and I expressed to them that our lives are so much better in recent years but they behave worse & worse. When we were dirt poor, no money, no car, very little food etc, they were such angels. I felt like they are so ungrateful. So I got so angry I just pushed past my husband, jumped in the car n drove. Upside, I stopped at a big supermarket that I don't normally go (not as close, a little pricier) and they were STOCKED! I got turkey, prime rib, a ham, 2 pumpkin pies , and all fixings! LOL. Glad they p'd me off!

Ooh & have my scan Wednesday as well, which is the repeat anatomy one. So it really is scan week! I have come to terms with it that maybe my last one was done a little to early & maybe if they had booked me a couple weeks later, all the heart drama wouldn't have happened, but hey they booked the appts not me. Happy Thanksgiving to all those celebrating!

iesha- I felt that way as well!! my dd's are from my first marriage. their dad left us one day and we didn't hear from him for a few months. he was never a good husband or dad, so it was probably a blessing. my girls were 1 and 2 at the time. money was tight and there was no room for extras. I barely made bills, food, and gas for the car. I didn't meet my DH until they were 4 and 6. so in between that time they seemed so well behaved and never asked for things at the store. always listened to me and were very sweet little girls. when my DH and I moved in together he spoiled them (well us) and it seemed like for a few years they just constantly asked for more and more. like nothing was ever enough! it amazed me how different they became. anyways... they eventually got the idea that they weren't owed every single thing their hearts desired and are now very grateful again. I would have eventually lost it if that change wouldn't have happened! I was over it. yay for getting your thanksgiving dinner sorted out through it all though!! hope your scan is great!!

Ugh!! I weighed myself for the first time this morning. 13 FREAKING POUNDS!!!!!! I was thinking maybe 10 at the most....This puts me at only 7lbs under than what I was at the END of pregnancy #3. I guess the upside is (Im reaching here...) Is I feel like I am on an upswing from the MS. The vomiting has stopped and at 10 weeks, feels like the nausea tap was switched off and is much more manageable now. So with any luck I wont be eating as much, but I still eat WAY more than I did pre pregnancy. I am so embarrassed about the weight gain. My dh has been super sweet, but I know what I look like. Im short and was a hair overweight to begin with. I will now go have a cry and eat some more.....

It's all good Mapleroo- the weight is extra fluid, extra blood, bigger boobs, enlarged uterus; all those wonderful things we need to support baby

I put on 14lbs by week 14 and now 18lb at week 20 this time, but last pregnancy it went on even quicker as I had terrible nausea and the only time I wasn't actually sick was when I was eating something, xxxx
