    Sorry I've been MIA ladies. My laptop keeps crashing and DH still needs to set up my pc from the move. I royally hate my iPhone but it's my only option atm. Glad to see everyone is doing well. Love the bump pictures! Our next scheduled scan is March 20th. I honestly think my family is more excited than I am to find out the gender. I want to know, don't get me wrong, but I'm still having trouble bonding. I've been feeling movement for several weeks now which gives me peace of mind but it still doesn't feel entirely real. Especially with my MS easing, I don't feel like my life currently revolves around being pregnant. I really don't feel that pregnant. I just feel bloated and it's a little hard to put my shoes on.

    Great bumps ladies!
    I am also team yellow merristems, don't stress about getting everything done. Once baby is here you will realise they don't need much at all apart from lots of cuddles. And milk!
    I am struggling to bond with this baby too, don't feel excited or really want to talk about it much. Hoping this changes soon

    oh my don't even mention lists....i feel like mine is never ending. I am in the process of moving so my house now is a mess with boxes and it's driving me mad. we get the keys next week so once we move and get settled, that will be the first check off from my list. then its planning the baby shower, designing invites, getting the nursery furniture delivered (thank goodness its already picked out and bought), setting up her room, buying some clothes, etc, i can keep going and going, lol. we are almost at the halfway mark of our pregnancies ladies!!!! where did the time go!! :)

    Hi ladies, how are you all feeling-yippie half way its gone really fast! My belly button hurts and is trying to poke out! I like my bump its getting quiet hard now. I have spd :( Been struggling since 13wks with it finally got a physio referral for next week! Swimming helps alot walking spoils all the help swimming does! My 20wk scan is on monday really excited to see lo again. I have been given tons of clothes, mostly boy stuff but never mind if i have a girl she can cope with being a tom boy until shes bigger!!
    Hope everyone is ok xxx

    Today I had a sharp pain on the right side of my abdomen when I was getting out of my moms car, I basically doubled over in pain for a few secs and my mom freaked out! Good ol' round ligament pain....not! Lol!

    I scheduled my sono for April 4th, but my gender reveal party isn't until April 13th so we are waiting until then to find out! I'm going to have the tech write it down and I am going to give it to the lady who is making our cake. I am so excited!

    As for my bump, I love it! Lol! I'm sure once I get to big and uncomfortable I won't love it as much. My belly button hasn't piped, but it didn't last time either, I think I have a deep belly button! But I feel huge too!

    Baby has been kicking up a storm and moving like crazy, it's the greatest feeling ever! DH hasn't been able to feel it yet, but I'm sure it won't be long!

    Here is my latest bump pic...

    Ok ladies I have officially felt my little girl kick!!! All those bubbles I was feeling the past few weeks have now turned into me feeling her and seeing my tummy "bump". I still get startled but I am sure over time I will get use to it. :)

    Hey ladies. Love the bumps! My belly button went from an innie to a flatty. Not sure if its going to pop or not but I know I'm seeing parts of it that I've never seen before. Lol. Anyway, we went for our scan yesterday. Everything was perfect! Phew! Also we found out it's a boy!!!! :) We couldn't be happier! I think it's really helped DH to finally get to see a scan with some movement. I think we may have decided on a name. Now I can start focusing on the nursery and putting away clothes for him. Here is a 4D face shot. He has his pouty lips going on. Probably because the tech kept poking him to get his hand away from his eye. Also he has his face burrowed in my uterus so it came out a little distorted.

    That's my biggest fear right now - that my milk won't come in! I didn't attempt to BF with DD so I'm not sure how its gonna work out for me.

    We only have two bedrooms so lucky for us this is another girl. They will be sharing a room which means DD has to rearrange her room! She is very excited. We are re-painting her room this weekend and starting the re-organization project. But we need to get a bigger dresser for them to share and I can't do that until I can pick up our new SUV - but they're taking FOREVER to register it! (I work for Toyota and this is an associate lease vehicle). Blah!

    I'm baking 3 batches of cupcakes tonight. Double batch red velvet with homemade cream cheese frosting and one chocolate with homemade chocolate buttecream.
