Anna SO cute! And yes, she looks so happy for being up all night

Beth, adorable photos of poppy!

So yes, my scan is tomorrow. Our clinic does not allow children, period, and I was unable to find childcare so hubby will be staying home with Ethan. As long as everything is fine I'm okay with that, but if something is wrong, I will be VERY upset to be there by myself. The good news is, I've had no reason so far to think anything is wrong, and my MS is now so intense (and all day and night like last time) that I feel like everything should be okay. I'm just praying! scan at 2 tomorrow. I looked back at my 6w2d scan with Ethan to remind me what I can expect to see. I'll be 6+4 tomorrow. If everything looks good I am DETERMINED to relax and try to enjoy this pregnancy (first tri ms misery notwithstanding) and stop obsessing and spending so much time googling and worrying. You would think having done this once before, I would not be so nervous, but nope! Never a shortage of worry for me.

Hugs to all and happy Monday!

Angela, you know the MS is a good sign, but I know it's hard not to worry. Just stay off the Internet!!! Except for here of course. Sorry DH won't be there. Also sorry for the crazy MS. Another boy perhapse??? Take care of yourself!! Picture of Jo was taken last night before the total melt down.

Have a good one. Anna

Hi girls!

Anna, Angela - I know you are both so right about the weight loss..it's just so depressing not having anything that fits. I'm so tired of living in stretchy pants My husband, bless his heart (he is a big guy!) tells me that I am beautiful no matter what weight I am and he likes me with a lil chunk!

I'm just going to keep at it and hope for the best and try not to stress. I just hope it eventually comes off!!

Beth - I love the pic of Poppy in the blue hat! He is so precious. Has he had his 2 month check up yet with shots? Gabby is getting her shots on Monday - if she cries it will break my heart!
Your night time routine sounds very similar to Gabby's routine - starting at around 7pm we start making the house just a little quieter. She gets a bath, eats, naps in my arms (or Tony's arms) up until around 10pm or 11pm and then she's swaddled and in her bassinet.

I've been reading books to her lately - she's smiling a LOT lately. It's amazing how much of a fool I will make of myself to get a smile out of her! LOL.

Anna - Jo is beautiful! That is a great picture of her in the tub!

Angela - I wish I could come with you to your scan. I know how nervous you must be I'll be on in the afternoon to see how things went...I have everything crossed and you will be in my thoughts and prayers my friend!!

Thanks Anna! I do wonder if it's another boy. Will be excited to find out!

And I think the ms is going to keep me out of even walking the color run. Unfortunately, I'm feeling pretty ill these days till at least after lunch, and the run starts at nine am and is 1.5 hours each way from my house. I hate to disappoint my friend and waste the reg fee but I just don't think I could do it, not at 7 weeks. I do want to get back to at least walking for exercise once the nausea passes, just not there yet.

Hey ladies!

Beth, I'm glad you and DH had a good chat and that the omeprazole seems to be helping.

Jules, it took me 15 months to lose my baby weight I think I used the BF'ing excuse to keep indulging longer than I should have... Will not make that mistake again! Plus I had PPD, so didn't actually start working out until ZoŽ was almost 5 months old. This time around, I can't wait to start running again, so I am hoping to start slow jogging 8 weeks after the C-section. I agree, give yourself a bit of slack, it'll come off!!!

Angela, and good luck tomorrow! I was alone for ALL scans during this pregnancy, as DH is living 4 hours away for school I was really nervous given the bleed I had at 6 weeks plus the complete absence of all symptoms... Turns out my body is just handling this pregnancy so much better than last time and I learned not to complain about my lack of symptoms Keep us posted!!!

Anna, I HATE teething! Was up 3:45-5AM with a very unhappy ZoŽ who is cutting her 2 year molars. I'm so tired Oh well, only 7 days of actual work left so I can't complain too much...

Anna, Jules and Beth, thanks for the baby photos, you've made my day

Hi to everyone else!!! OK back to finish the load of stuff on my desk...

Jules, we cross posted. Thank you so much and I will report back as soon as I gt home tomorrow!

CJ thank you too! At this point I honestly feel about like I did with my pgcy with Ethan, so I feel good about things in that sense, but am really missing the lack of nausea and the enjoyment of lots of food that charactized weeks 5 and 6! we had our family and Ethan's portraits done this satruday (I can't wait to see and share those!) so I took a zofran that day so I wouldn't LOOK as awful as I'd been feeling. I felt SO much better I was even able to go out for Mexican with hubby and ethan and I thought, oh that's right, THIS is what it feels like to want to eat again lol! I don't want to complain though, I'm so thankful to be pregnant again and at least this time, with the perspective earned from my first pregnancy, I can remind myself it's just temporary and I don't have to worry it will go on forever, like I worried last time.

And I just want to say, you are amazing juggling all that you are doing right now! Working full time, taking care of Zoe with your hubby gone most of the time, getting ready for baby and still finding time to KNIT! Lol! I saw your journal post and couldn't believe all you are balancing! Although I knit too, and could see where that may actually be a soothing project, except that you have a project deadline!

LOL thanks, I think I've been in survival mode since DH left in September It's amazing what you can get done when you really have no choice! As for the knitting, don't laugh but a lot of it is done during rounds at the hospital I only get about 30 minutes done per night as I unwind and watch 1 TV episode...

Hi Ladies,

I have been MIA for the past week and half. Work has been super duper crazy! When I get home I have just enough energy to play with Katelyn give her a bath and put her to bed! My boss is out this week so I have some breathing room here to read and post!

I have been trying to catch up on what everyone is doing and have posted to some of your FB pages this week so I am trying to keep up to date with that!!!!

Hi Happy Auntie!!! I hope you are well. Thank you for the update on our friends on 35+ and thank you (and Angela) for the update on Heartree!

CHarmaine! I know I am about 8 pages late, but your girls are GORGEOUS!!!! I just want to squeeze each of them!

In fact all you all that have posted photos of your little ones lately they are just too cute for words!

Angela - Let us know how your scan goes!!!

CJ - So excited for you.

Anna - Sorry to hear that Jo is keeping you up with teething. I love the photo of her in the tub though!



I am trying to get all the last minute preparations for Katelyn's birthday together, but been having trouble finding time. My Step son had his birthday last week and we had a party for him this past Saturday and in addition to all of that, we are trying to do a shortsale on my house (which was approved and if all goes well we have to be out by April 13th!!!!!) and look for a rental in the mean while! We found a couple that we liked. One that has a great backyard, but is kind of small on the inside, however we can store things in the garage. Another, that is roomy on the inside, but no garage thus, we would need a storage room. It has just been a pain in the ass frankly especially since we are on a time crunch. If we had more time we could probably find something that was a better fit, however I am leaving it in God's hands. He will put us where we need to be!

On top of that my family is flying in this week for Katie's bday! Gonna be another busy week. I am hoping by April 16th the house situation will be done and we will be in our new spot. I will try and keep up with you all this week. Sorry this post is mainly about me.

Hi to everyone else, Jules, Beth, Happy Auntie, Carole, Laura, Rebekah

Love,
Steph

Steph honey that is a lot to get done in two weeks! I know how stressful the party planning alone can be, can't imagine a two week short sale and move on top! I wish I lived closer and could help you somehow!
