Hi Viv!!! Congrats on the pregnancy!! That is so excited. I too remember morning (more like all day) sickness very well.

Angela - I love the photos! Ethan is so big and so is Reece! Hopefully everyone is still healthy in your house hold!

Madelyn is 6 months old and I am still in shock that I had a baby 6 months ago. It really doesn't seem that long ago.

Katelyn turns 3 in 3 weeks from today so I am now in bday party planning mode. Trying to make is simple. I rented a bounce house and may get a few additional toys and calling it a day!

How is everyone else doing and the other pregnant ladies??? I miss everyone!!!

Hugs,
Steph

Steph I agree, keep the parties simple, and everyone (especially mommy!) will have more fun! We did the indoor bounce house (because of weather and timing here - March 1 is very unpredictable weather in Atlanta). But ALL the kids loved it and we had so much fun! I'm sure Katie's party will be AWESOME!

Can't believe Madelyn is 6 months already! I have those moments too, where I'm thinking, is Reece really already over a year old??? By the time Ethan was 16 months (like Reece is now), I was well into 2nd tri with Reece. Whew. It goes by so fast!!

WOW so many of you are back!!! I am so happy to see this!! Everyone sounds like they are doing well. General consensus we are all sick of winter!!! This has been by far the worst winter I can remember since moving to the East.

Soooooooo I am 33 weeks!!! I am huge and uncomfortable and hating pregnancy just as much as I did the first time round.

The pregnancy itself is going really well. I am just in a lot of hip pain so sleeping is very difficult. I literally wake every 45 min to turn over (which is no easy task). Then there is the heart burn and the 5 pee breaks per night. I am also starting to be ravenous 24/7 and can't sleep from hunger. Good times.

I had an ultrasound last week at 32 weeks because of my age and because at my 20 week I had marginal posterior placenta (previa). Well, the placenta did not migrate like suspected but apparently there is just enough room for a vaginal delivery (4cm). Not that I am thrilled to go through that again, but I am terrified of a C-section so I was quite relieved. Little mister is head down and in position. He has dropped into my pelvis already and his head is smashed against my cervix (ouch!). They tried everything to move him up to measure where my placenta was (double ouch!). I don't know if this means he's coming sooner than later, but I have always had a feeling this whole pregnancy that he'd be coming to the party earlier than his sister (she was 39 weeks 2 days). I finish work on the 17th... so he is not allowed to come before 38 weeks. Momma needs a few days off to herself...

Sophie is doing amazingly! 2 1/2 and just soooo smart it's unreal. I am so in love. We are potty training but really just following her lead. She has been pee pee potty trained since before Christmas (with the occasional mistake), she even stays dry at night most of the time! We just can not for the life of us to get her to poo poo in the potty. It's getting frustrating. I was hoping she'd be out of pull ups before her brother arrives, but it's not looking liking and I'm sure his arrival will further delay the process. I am getting tired of paying for pull ups... but we really only use maybe 2-3 a day. But still!!!

She talks up a storm, but then always has. Must be a girl thing She's super into counting and has mastered her ABC's. We'll be out shopping and she'll spell out sign names. She's still mixing the two languages (French and English) but seems to know the difference between the two. Thanks to Dora she's even learning some Spanish now! LOL

She seems to be excited for her baby brother to arrive but we'll see. I am talking about it more and more now to get her ready and tell her he's coming soon and is going to sleep in our house. We'll put the crib up this weekend to get her accustomed to the idea as he'll be sleeping in our room and most nights she still comes in to sleep with me at the wee hours... Never figured out had to stop that

So that's my life in a nutshell. I am HUGE. I mean, my bump is massive, almost the size I was full term with Soph! I have also already gained as much as I did with Soph and I still have 6-7 weeks to go! Oh boy..... I have to say though, I don't feel I look fat though.... but once this little guy is out I will!

Speaking of which, he still has NO name. My husband and I can not agree on anything. I wanted Noah, he wanted Samuel. Then there was Benjamin but he's always changing his mind. Right now he's liking nothing. I am thinking Maxim or Alexei. We are Ukrainian and I like the Slavic names. Plus they are bilingual (French/English) which for some reason is important to my husband.... Maxim Samuel Martyn or Alexei Samuel Martyn... What do you think? I know Max Martyn sounds a bit weird but I really like the name Max.

Hi, wedding was great I will post photos at some point or you can stalk me on facebook, Vivienne Wood Christchurch.

So many preggers and new babies about it's amazing, congrats to all.

I must admit right now I am hating being pregnant as you know with a toddler it is so much harder when all you want to do is lie down quietly and die somewhere.
I had it bad last time but I blocked it out, Can't imagine why!!!!!!!

Just praying 12 weeks is the magic mark for me otherwise I don't know what I'll do.


I'm on several different drugs to calm the vomitting but the nausea is unreal. Did anyone else use drugs?????

Yes Viv, I did use Zofran the entire pregnancy with both boys!! So never fear! It is SO much harder the second time if you are sick, because you really do need to just rest but of course can't w a toddler running amok. I feel for you. I remember it well!

HUGS!!

Chris, that is so funny about the baby names - we had the same struggle. Neither of my kids was named until the day they kicked us out of the hospital and we HAD to fill out the paperwork LOL!

How neat that your heritage is Ukrainian! Though I hope you don't have family there now that is being affected by all this horrible unrest over there Such a scary situation.
