Haha!  YES!!  I feel like I am eating all the time right now.  I told my husband I am eating like a hobbit!  I'm not looking forward to morning sickness, but at least it will keep me from gaining too much weight. 
So excited to be here! We are expecting #3!! I have been married for 8 years, and I have two adorable little girls (4 and 16 months). We just started TTC this month. I got my BFP on Monday, 5 days before my missed period. I could hardly believe it! Not quite sure on the due date yet, but it looks like it is somewhere around July 19th.
Decided against posting this.
I decided to wing it with this birth and it worked. I had to keep moving. I leaned with both hands on the back of a chair, the bed rail, and the shower bar while rocking my weight from one leg to the other. I also moved my hips around in a circle - like very slowly hula hooping. The contractions felt the worst when I had to be tethered to the bed for monitoring.

Congratulations! Enjoy your new little lady!
Millicent Edith "Millie" was born on Monday, June 29, 7lbs 8oz, 20 1/2 in. My water broke at 6:15 AM, I was in active labor by 12:00 PM, and we were holding our little girl at 3:49 PM.

I had an episode of false labor on Wed. night too. The contractions were strong enough that they kept me up all night, but they were irregular. Then early Thurs. morning I had about 2 hours of regular, 8 min. apart contractions. DH started packing, my mom came over for DD, and I got in the shower - where they stopped cold turkey!! Beyond frustrating! I didn't realize how lucky I was to just have my water break last time.

I had a lot of bloody show this morning, but I am not letting myself get too excited. I've had so many "signs" and still here I sit!!
