  • Not much going on here! Starting to feel baby move a little more (but still not that much thanks to my anterior placenta), belly feels like it's growing really fast now! On my way to go get another prenatal massage as a holiday prep :) The holidays are going to be a little crazy for us as we're spending 9 days 'back home', sharing our time between my family and his family (who live about an hour apart) and our friends spread in between. It's exciting though as we'll get to see some friends we've barely managed to see since we moved two years ago (6 hrs away).

    Merry Christmas to all!

  • Howdy! I have my monthly OB appointment tomorrow. I've had some vertigo/ dizzy spells and nearly passed out in the shower so it's been a tough week. OB says it's just low blood pressure typical of the start of 2nd tri combined with my own low-baseline bp. Grr. Thought this was supposed to be the golden age of pregnancy. Lol.

  • @AdorkablePixie : how awesome, another little guy :) Congrats!

    @HBMama2B : so sorry you're not feeling great. I've had to lower the temperature of my showers, and until recently, I'd go back to bed for 10 min or so after my shower because I was feeling very weak after. It may be a good idea for you to eat before your shower too if you don't do it already. It gets better though, I promise! Glad to see you here! It's crazy how time flies! I'm already more than halfway through!

  • @AdorkablePixie : isn't it fun?! We bought a few clothes right after we found out we were having a little guy. I thought I've bought so many freakin things for other people's kids, now I was going to treat myself!
    Most likely going to go pick the paint colours for the nursery later (we'll be painting right after the holidays). I'm expecting we'll be getting a bunch of baby stuff during the holidays too, so DH is telling me to hold off for now!

  • HI ladies! Quiet week for me! Technically we are only Team Green until December 31st!! I brought the envelope to the woman making the cake pops for our reveal yesterday and stood there while she opened the envelope. She was weirded out because apparently the nurse put a few clip art pics inside the card we gave her to just write BOY or GIRL. So now I'm SUPER anxious to see what's inside this envelope but alas I will wait. What's another week, when we've waited this long?

    Also I haven't realized how big I am until I saw myself in a picture we took last night! I feel like a house!

    @adorkablepixie YAY for BOY!!! SO happy for you! :)

    @HBmama2B I'm sorry about the dizziness. I hope you feel better soon!

  • @AdorkablePixie ;YAY! A BOY!! Congrats!!

    Not much happening here. Just started vacation from work and am super excited!! lol We painted the base coat of the nursery and I am busy coming up with wall designs. After the holidays we plan to carpet the whole first floor so after that I can FINALLY begin furnishing the nursery and getting it together. It's a lot of fun. Been working on my first quilt! Been shopping,,, a lot lol. Mostly decor. and necessities. Been feeling pretty good, other than some swollen feet and heartburn...

    I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas!!!

  • Love seeing all you ladies! OB appointment went well today. Little guy was hopping up and down during the ultrasound. Got him facing front so he looks like Marvin the Martian to me. :) still sick and OB says dizziness will continue but that I should take sudafed and see if that helps with the congestion at least. I'm hopeful I'll feel better soon! Thanks for the well wishes and tips!!! The 12 week scan is the profile, today is the Martian. Anyone have any amazing Christmas jammys? I'm rocking mine right now.

  • @KidShrink Yes! I am loving it. I told I accidentally bought some stuff for baby and he's like "accidentally??" lol

    @NB817 Thanks! I can't wait to hear how the reveal goes! Take pictures!

    @krbjoy Thanks! Sounds like you're getting a lot done. I wish we had our house already so we could start the nursery. I need to call a realtor tomorrow some can get on buying a lot and building or finding a decent house that suits our needs!

    @CTinNV Have a great Christmas! That sounds like it will be busy yet fun.

    @HBamama2B Aww! Sweet little baby. :)

    if anyone sees any website that have avengers crib bedding will you let me know. I want our nursery to be super hero stuff and the only place I can find the bedding is on etsy! It's super expensive.

  • @AdorkablePixie : accidents do happen ;)

    @HBMama2B : we got a bunch of cute pictures from our last ultrasound, but then somehow the tech felt the need to print this freaky picture! Why?!

    Also, DH got to feel some little baby kicks last night! That was exciting :)
