Thanks, CB!!

I am 20 weeks today! Starting to really feel pregnant last week and I'm glad it's warm enough here to wear my long hippie skirts again...streeeeetchy!!

Mammo2sammo, we don't live far from one another! Dp is from Boston and all of his family is as well. We moved out here 2 years ago for dp's job and to be closer, in hopes we'd have them in our lives and have some help and create a strong family bond. Meh. Didn't go as we hoped! Should have learned my lesson the 1st time we tried living near them, we lived in NH for a short time 6 years ago.

We have 7 days left living in RI!! I will miss so many mamas, especially the ones I met on MDC! I'm worried our new place is just waaaaaay too rural and hope the year there is a good one. I HATE snow and yet I'm moving to a freakin' mountain. Go figure.

hello! I feel like I've been MIA in here, I check in at least daily, but don't always have anything to say.

I'm 20 week, feeling pretty good. I still feeling in limbo about moving/work. I got a job offer but am having second thoughts about moving to the middle of nowhere.

19 weeks today, had my second prenatal on Saturday It went good and hubby was able to come because he was on leave for ten days!!! I just sent him off to Italy on Monday and I will be following him in a week or two, so lots of busyness and excitement about that. I will probably be MIA for awhile after I get there while I settle into a new house, start learning the language, and figure out how to do everything in a new country

Today, for the first time in my life, milk came out of my boobs. Just one drop each, but since then I've found little crusties and they totally smell like milk. Woah dude. I think my world just changed.

We are moving to Colorado, small ski town in the Rocky Mountains. We'll be at near 9000 ft elevation! Only a year and hopefully Belize after that!


Kallyn, AWESOME!! I remember when that happend to me during my 1st pregnancy. What a great feeling Hasn't stopped as I've nursed during all 6 of my pregnancies.

Piekat, good luck! I will be moving to the middle of nowhere. Kinda scared, kinda excited...what part of the country would you be moving to?

BIA, good luck to you, too! Italy, wow, that sounds amazing! After dp's year in CO we can move anywhere the company has hotels, Italy is on the list. We've talked about it..not so sure we'd do it (we are hoping for central america for long term) but what a dream! I can't wait to hear all about it from you!

Thanks!
It's small town, rural Kansas. I think I've pretty much decided it's a no go at this point. I can't find daycare for Madi there, no job potential for DH and it's 1.5 hours away from where he works right now which is not practical for daddy-bonding with a new babe. I shared this with my potential-boss today and she asked if she could help find daycare for us. They REALLY need speech pathologists there. It's unfortunate because I feel I could do really good things there, but the logistics are rotten.

Where are you moving??

LemonJuice - are you leaving this area? or will you still be around. I now live in metronorthwest Boston and we are really enjoying it.

Oops just reread your response from earlier. I've always been interested in CO.

i forgot to say, no. i'm going to try a new practice and if they won't accept me that far along, then i feel confident i can always go back to the doc who delivered my #5. last time i called him the day i was in labor and he took me, so i'm pretty sure he'd see me, even for the first time at 28 weeksish...

Tomorrow is our big ultrasound!!!!! I'm crazy excited and we are going to have a room full of people ... me, dh, ds & both of my parents.

After the u/s ds and I are going to our local waterpark/amusement park to process our season passes and go for the first time. It's something special we do each summer and I think it will be a neat way to celebrate knowing if he's going to have a little brother or sister.

I honestly don't think I'm going to be able to sleep tonight. Our u/s is at 8am central .. and I wont be back to update until later on in the day tomorrow. I'm kinda thinking pink .. but who knows. I'm just so excited....
post #31 of 55
All the best for tomorrow mistymama! I'll look forward to your update

I keep changing my mind about getting a 20 week u/s. I want to know the sex now, but I want to be surprised at birth too By the time I make up my mind October will probably be here already

20 weeks today also and jumping back on in to this DDC after a couple of months of lurking

Things are just getting started at my house.....I am planning on starting a home preschool when the babe is born, and realizing that there is only 5 months left to renovate the space is daunting!!

DS (3.5) is so very excited about the new babe....which makes me giddy. When someone asks him he gets a huge smile on his face. He has already offered to share his room and give the babe a bath!! He is positive it is a girl and only says she and her (even though we dont know!) Don't know why I didn't expect this...but it is certainly nice!!

I will be 20wks on Sunday. Today is the first day I felt the baby move from the outside. Not only that, but when I poked the baby poked back. This is my third, but my first was a front placenta so rarely felt him, and my second was a scaredy-cat and always jumped and swam away when I poked. Also, I was 50 lbs heavier. I am still very overweight, but the reduced fluff seems to be helping with feeling.

Your DS sounds just like me! My mom was pregnant with my little sister when I was 3.5 and I also *knew* she was a girl. Everyone kept telling me that she could be a boy, but I knew that they were wrong. I remember the absolute certainty that I had, never a single doubt in my mind, and how silly I thought everyone was for telling me that she could be a boy. I have been telling DH all this pregnancy that we just need a 3 year old to come and commune with my belly so we know if we're having a boy or girl.

I'm 20 weeks today, too Dd3 is all about the baby, she keeps peering at my belly button trying to see him

Good luck at the u/s tomorrow mistymama!

Kids can be sooo cute! DD tells me that she has a baby stuck in her belly, and she tries to puuuuusssssh it out. We've been watching birth vids in preparation. The other day I asked how the baby was going to come out and she said "better call Fireman Sam!" (it's a cartoon here)

She loves to kiss and cuddle the baby too. She just loves babies!

They're so funny! It's such a joy to watch them processing a new sibling.

We have family in that area! Well, all of dp's family is out this way. We lived here for 2 years and now we are off to another adventure! It was nice to be near famiy for some time, but a bit frustrating as well. We *might* end up out here again, if so, we'd go to Maine for sure. Our hope is to save enough, buy some land, do the sustainable thing..hopefully sell some to friends and make a nice little intentional community. That'd be nice! Just not sure where at this point. We also really love the PacNW and miss our friends there and life there very much. It's just SO expensive!

Where are you moving??
What a bummer!! Yeah, that's some commute! Actually, we are moving to a mountain town in Colorado that has been taken over by tourist and the ski industry. Most locals can't afford to live there now and have to commute from the next town over, which is a 1.5 hour commute, not including the commute in winter that is extreme! Dp is there now (actually he's on his way home, he's been gone for weeks!!) and on that same drive to the airport they almost hit 1 elk, 2 deer, and a few skunk.

How far is the job from where you are now?? If you move to Kansas, we'll be in the same 'tribe'!

It takes DH 1.5 hrs to get to work. Hard to believe because it is so close, but he takes public transportation and there is city traffic. We would love to figure out a way to get us closer, but it hasn't happened yet.

I'm 18 weeks, I have my US next friday and am getting very anxious/excited. Its always nice to make sure everything is OK and I can't wait to figure out if this one is a boy or girl.

I'm making a quilt for baby, I did the same for DD and it only took me a week start to finish. This time its taking me MUCH longer (I wonder why? Having a 2 year old wouldn't have anything to do with that would it. )

We've had unseasonable HOT weather recently, I DO NOT do well in the heat, let alone pregnant in the heat. How is everyone else doing as things start to heat up outside?
