Everything seems to be going well over here. I wont get to half way until Saturday. It stinks being at the end of the month- its like the kid who doesnt turn 16 until their Jr. year! haha. Baby is super active and my fundus is right at my belly button so I'm assuming it is growing appropriately. We have our 20 week scan next Friday. We dont want to find out the gender but I'll be watching closely just to see if I can catch a glimpse. My feeling is that it's a girl but I'm not as convinced this time as I was with DS- I just knew he was a boy. Part of me hopes for little girl (hence another little Hanna Andersen sleeper from Costco this am just in case) and part of me hopes for another boy for DS to rough and tumble with!
It is trying to be spring here. 50 and pouring rain, sun breaks, high wind warning, pouring rain, sun breaks... repeat until July.

I cant eat much these days! we went out sans DS yesterday with some friends and I was totally stoked to just eat whatever I wanted on the menu. I could only eat just a little before I was totally full. :( LAME

Question: Would anyone be up for having a monthly chat thread as opposed to the weekly ones? It seems like once we get started with the chatting, it's time for a new weeks thread to start.
I get twinges over my belly. Im sure its my tired old muscles but it kind of hurts- its like when you turn your neck wrong only down the side of my belly. It always makes me jump. Plus my belly has been really sore to the touch. if it gets bumped it is quite painful. Not all the time, but I dont remember it being like that with DS. Other than that, no complaints here.
I'd totally be up for monthly, or bimonthly threads. I can never remember to go to the new one and always keep going back to the old one.

What are you waiting for!!! Buy away!!

I remember with DS I'd gain a pound for one month then like 10 for the next. It was distressing at the time but it evened out in the end. Plus since we're all getting to the early 20's gestation wise, that's when baby really starts to grow and add lbs too. Eat up!
