Jen- My Addy had hiccups ALL THE TIME and was 15 days post due. So, in our case, that tale does not hold true! I'm also itching to start on baby's quilt, but seem to have so many other things that need to be done first. Are you planning on doing a quilt pattern?
Anne- your cabin does sound magical!! It sounds like the perfect weekend home :)
Rae- I don't eat nearly enough protein either. I just don't generally enjoy it! I've started boiling a ton of eggs every week just to keep on hand but I'm sure I need more. I feel like the second trimester has completely left me and now it's time to be tired all the time again! But there's still so much to do!!
Sunseeker- sad about your FIL. (((hugs!!)) Also, did you do the KC renfest? That started a few weeks ago and I've been thinking about taking the family this year. This will be our third fall in KS and I have yet to go!
Lulu & kel- oh bras. They are such a necessity but man, I hate having to buy so many different sizes during and after pregnancy. I see that you already splurged on some bravados, but here is a link to the (cheap!) nursing bras I get from walmart. I've used them now through my last two pregnancies and love how comfortable they are. I NEED full coverage and these do just the trick. I bought one last week and am buying two more tomorrow, (pay day!) so I can quit wearing my pre-pregnancy bras. Those are all minimizers, which aren't too good for me anyway, but I just can't stand saggy boobs. I should probably get over that, since I'll most likely be into a G or H by the time we are nursing again.
Sandi- your art class story is just too much! I love it! The only time I've taken a life drawing class, we had a model who was 8 months pregnant. It was so beautiful!! Kudos for you for modeling!! I think that's wonderful!
Kate- I agree on the frilly stuff. We have NO idea who these babies will grow up to be, so to try to give them a gender identity drives me nuts! I also agree with you on visiting family! I love my family, but I don't know if it's hormones or what, but when we visited last month, they drove me insane! Part of it was my dad who had a cow that I was knitting pants for this babe because to him, knit pants aren't "manly." Oh, lordy, when did decided who our kids are going to be become so acceptable?
Kel- what your son said is amazing! I hope I am raising my littles to be that unbiased and freethinking when they are 12!
AFM, I think we are finally getting used to DH being gone so much with school again. It's his fourth week of classes and the girls and I are finally not going nuts by the end of the day. Today I'm planning on finishing up the dining room as our homeschool room and we will put a real *start* to our homeschool year. I've also started thinking about bigger stuff that needs to be done before baby comes- like how am I going to do bedtime with three by myself? And how am I going to situate all three car seats in the car. I'm also making a mental note of random things I'd like at this birth and getting way too excited for it. Like white christmas lights! I plan on stringing them up all over the house in a few months.
I finally went to the chiro on Monday- sweet relief!! Last night I could roll over without vocalizing my pain. My chiro is a birth center and homebirth dad, so that is pretty neat. I'm just kicking myself for waiting to go for so long!
I also got a little teary today talking with DH that our baby could be here in less than three months. HOLY MOLY! That is sooooo soon! Some of you ladies will have babies in two months. How crazy is that to think about?
Remember a few months ago we had talked about doing some kind of Skype shower with everyone? Can anyone remind me of what that was going to entail/be?
