I am so excited - I will be out there all summer enjoying the breeze without swarms of mosquitoes and wasps that hang out in our backyard!
School is still kicking my butt big-time, but I am enjoying it and I'm glad I'm doing it. We went and looked at a preschool we want Meadow to go to in the fall, and I have such mixed emotions! I know she will love it, and I am not sure how I would handle a newborn, a toddler and my classes, but I will miss spending my days with her. Except the days she's driving me crazy
Hope everyone is doing well, and I'll post Thursday after our ultrasound!!
I was thinking about preschool for DD in the fall, but she won't be 3 till october. And I have mixed thoughts about sending her to school so close after having a new baby, I don't want her to feel kicked out or replaced. I'm hoping my MIL will take less hours at her job and maybe watch DD for me on a set schedule a few mornings/afternoons a week. Might be better for everyone, ukwim?

Very fun when you can see the little fist hit you and then feel it!
One bad thing is still my right ovary. It was really big in the first ultrasound, but I can't remember how big.. and it's currently 8cm at the biggest. That's nearly 4 inches. Really a big excessive.
The funny part about that is that I've been thinking that mass was my baby's butt - nope! Ovary :P We've been cuddling it nicely!
Appointment in about two weeks with the midwives so we'll see what there is to know then.
Also, I just ate chili and it was So. Good.
Holy crap on that ovary! How funny you've been cuddling it! Whats the next step? Just keeping an eye still?

He did take me out to buy a few baby things with our wal mart gift card after.
Hugs! Sounds tough all around, except for the new baby things. Maybe getting everything out is a good thing though, keeping things bottled up isn't healthy either. Sometimes a good cry is just what we need to reset things.
AFM - Still over the moon about our boy news! I'm super happy. I was *right* all along! Such fun. Trying to get Nora more involved and refer to the baby as her "baby brother" and it's kind of catching on, lol. Might take a few more days, considering she still says "baby sister", lol!
I don't feel like doing ANYTHING today. Baby is hanging out super low causing me a lot of pain in my groin and in my sacrum. I feel like my sciatic nerve is about to blow apart into pieces, and all I want to do is sit online and shop and look at baby names.
