  • Hi all! It's great to see so many positive updates!  I have been so totally swamped with home and work stuff the last few weeks so haven't been on here much and have missed a lot of intros.  Sorry to have been AWOL.  Hope to catch up over the next couple of weeks.  Best wishes to all of you with recent BFPs getting through those worry-filled early weeks and also the morning sickness.  I hope it ends soon!  

    @2redtulips congratulations on almost v-day!  woo-hoo!

    1) Due date? How many weeks are you? What size is baby?   5/7  - 37 weeks today - winter melon, whatever that is.

    2) Age at delivery? (optional)   39

    3) Any other children? Furbabies?  2 cats

    4) How are you feeling? New symptoms this week?   Physically, really pretty good, considering.  Having to get up around 4-5 times most nights isn't the best, but ... at least I can usually get right back to sleep afterwards.    Otherwise ... stress stress stress but it's starting to improve as the light at the end of the tunnel comes into view.  For the past few weeks we were getting things ready for my mother in law to arrive (staying for 5.5 months) but now that she is here things are going pretty well so far.  Thankfully she is very very nice.  And it's nice to have someone else cook.  :)  Tomorrow is my last day with students before mat. leave and there has been *SO* much to get done.  It won't all get done but at least when tomorrow is over I just have to accept that.  Then April vacation is for cleaning up the classroom/doing the student paperwork I've fallen behind on so that things are ready for the sub, and doing a ton of aggravating paperwork for our burdensome new teacher eval. program.  So LO had better not be more than 1.5 weeks early!!  My leave/vacation/time to do stuff to be more ready for baby at home will start at the end of April vacation when everyone else goes back to work.  
           On the plus side from the last few weeks, my coworkers had a lovely shower for me 2 weeks ago and totally pulled it off as a surprise (It was a "staff meeting" with a totally believable ruse for moving to another classroom after the first 10-15 minutes of it) so that was really nice.  Of course, I haven't quite finished all the thank-you notes, so that's another thing on the to-do list, but ... it's still good.

    5) Any upcoming appointments, milestones, rants or raves?  BPP, growth scan, and weekly check-up on Friday.  I think I already exceeded my rant/rave quota on the previous question!

    QOTW: Where did you go/would you like to go for your Honeymoon?  Nowhere as cool as the rest of you!  We did a very small, simple wedding in September (almost 10 years ago now - yikes!) and couldn't take very long (school) so just spent 2 days on the outer Cape (Cape Cod) - it was pretty and relaxing and nice to be there without the summer tourist crowds.  Then at Christmas/New Year's that year we spent a week skiing in NH that was supposed to be more of a "real" honeymoon but really the first one was nicer.  Partly because dh and I got into a stupid fight on New Year's Eve ... one of many bumps in the road over all these years but we're still here and together so I guess it wasn't so bad!
    Me: 39  DH: 44  together since 2000 married 9/2004 TTC #1 since 2/2012
    BFP #1 6/5/2012  m/c 6/15/2012 about 5w3d   BFP #2 6/?/2013 m/c 7/1/2013 5w 3d
    BFP #3 8/25/2013  EDD 5/7/2014    DD A. born 5/8/2014!!  Love!!!!

    QOTR
  • 1) Due date? How many weeks are you? What size is baby?

    August 27th. I am 21 weeks as of yesterday. At my anatomy scan last week she was 13 ounces

    2) Age at delivery? (optional) 

    36

    3) Any other children? Furbabies?

    No other human children. We have a lab mix named Belle who is very much our first baby. She turned 11 today but you would never know it aside from her grey beard.  Full of energy and healthy. Our 11 year old puppy. :) 

    4) How are you feeling? New symptoms this week?

    Feeling pretty good for the most part. I have been having really crappy ligament pain where it feels like ive pulled my groin severley. Other than that no complaints...yet. 

    5) Any upcoming appointments, milestones, rants or raves?

    I have a follow up to my anatomy scan on May 8th as well as my glucose test. Also in the last few days I have starting to feel her moving a couple of times a day. 

    QOTW: Where did you go/would you like to go for your Honeymoon? We actually never had a honeymoon. We moved from Seattle to Boston 4 days after our wedding. So I suppose that drive across country was our honeymoon. We are planning a trip to Scotland for our 40th bdays so we will call that our honeymoon. lol Only 12 or so years late :)
