I started to tear up. Seriously! Full on emotion. Hello hormones!
laughup : I hear you!!! This is me today.

I feel exhausted. And emotional. I want to be hugged.

Isn't it fun to feel PG though?

I had the windows open all day. It wasn't too bad in the apartment, but I had to do laundry today and the laundry room reeked.

Wow, I guess I'm not the only one with the crazy sense of smell. I usually have a terrible sense of smell; I make DH smell the milk for me to see if it went bad.

Well, today, I was sniffing my hand, and I realized it stunk. My DH could be a drug sniffing dog, so I had him smell it. Apparently my hand reeks of sponge that was used in a metal sink. He smells it all the time and it annoys him. I didn't even know metal sinks could give sponges a smell that would rub off on hands! It's definitely annoying me too.

So I had my mw appt today, I LOVE her!! I'd never met her before, the sucky thing is she's transfering to a hospital about 1/2 hr away in June/July. I want to tell dh but I'm keeping it quiet until she transfers then saying, "Well sorry babe, I've already started with her, I guess I gotta go out there" : Bad wife..but I really love her! She's got the mindset of a lay midwife but it an herbalist and CNM. I scored pretty good! But she bumped my due date up to Dec 20th, but I'm keeping my original until I get my u/s and see what the measurements say. But I had my first craving, Taco Bell a crunchwrap surpreme. OMG it tasted so good going down but ughhh gut bomb after...guess I'll learn.

Aimee- Half an hour isn't too bad. And if you love your midwife, then you need to stay with her As for the due date I agree with waiting until the u/s. It's a little better at determining.

I made cookies tonight and now I feel like yuck. Too much dairy maybe...

Funny story...

I'm at the midwife's yesterday and we're trying to figure out my EDD and I said my last period was between the end of february beginning of april. We went on for a while and then she came back to it and started asking all these questions like was there any point that I couldn't have concieved yada yada. Then I realized what I said. I had meant to say end of march beginning of april. Poor woman was having a field day trying to figure things out. I'll chalk that one up to early preggo/ mommy brain

Aimee...I travel about an hour to my Dr b/c I love him so much!!! And if necessary, he'd come closer, but the closest hospital is still about 30 min, so it's not much better.

Where ya at ladies? Are you getting ready for MD weekend? Any plans?

I don't think my DH knows it is MD weekend. He's completely clueless. SO unless someone reminds him (I refuse to!!!) His mother and I will get nadda lol. Oh well.

Sitting on the porch watching a rain storm (hope it keeps up we're in a bad drought).

I've got my mother, mil and my brother and his wife (who is pregnant and due in Nov) coming to have what we always call "breakfast meal" at our house Sunday afternoon. I'll be cooking biscuits, bacon, sausage, gravy, eggs, cheese grits... that sort of thing. Hopefully my morning sickness won't act up that day. It seems to come and go randomly.

My girls are away at their first slumber party tonight so I'm a little worried about them. Isadora, my youngest saw me coming out of the bathroom last week with the pregnancy test and flipped out so the girls both knew I was pregnant as soon as we did. She's a social butterfly and is apparently incapable of keeping a secret (though we did try to get her to) and now everyone at her school knows I'm pregnant. I've been having to follow behind her and say that it's VERY early. I'm still so paranoid.

Hi everyone! I thought I'd join the chit-chatting.

Mommy2Austin: thats so funny, I keep doing the same thing with saying when my last period was. Only I keep saying end of april, beg. of May. And then I think, no that's not right...
I actually can't remember when exactly my LMP was or when we conceived so I'm not really sure what my EDD will be. So would an ultrasound would needed for that? I wasn't planning on having one, but if I need to its ok I guess.

I'll be travelling a bit be seen by my mws- about 30 min. or so. Well worth it for me.

Lets see, for Mothers day were going out with my mil for lunch and my parents for dinner.

Chavaleh: how sweet that your dd is so excited about the baby! I'm paranoid too so we don't plan on telling anyone until 12 weeks or so. My 5yo doesn't even understand the concept of a secret so we're keeping it from our kids too, unfortunately. If he found out I'm sure the whole world would know before too long!

I am trying to give up caffeine. Gave it up totally with my other two but I am seriously struggling this time. Starting tomorrow I'm going to try to switch to green tea.

I'm looking foward to getting to know everyone here, DDC's are so fun!

Jillybean- I don't think you would have to get an ultrasound if you really didn't want it. In all honesty you'll know when the baby is coming when it's coming lol. But if you would feel more comfortable knowing a date then ultrasound would be the way to go!

So I won't be on for a few days probably. We're going on an impromptu/last minute/emergency trip to Virginia to help a friend move. Long story short the people she was living with decided not to pay the bills and since her husband (the guy that has been staying with us) is here already we're just gonna drive out and get their stuff. We're supposed to be back on Wed. and yes we're taking Austin : That's gonna be sooo much fun (dripping sarcasm). So I'm not gettin nothin for mommas day except a huge headache and a cranky roadtrip yay!

All sarcasm aside I don't mind helping them out. They are our best friends and they'd do the same for us. I'm just pregnant and cranky : Hopefully Austin will be good and we can get there and back without any problems.

ETA: Yeah so scratch this. We don't have to go We came up with a different plan that doesn't involve us driving at all yay! I might get my mommas day after all!!

Our church had a potluck lunch to celebrate mother's day, and all the moms got to go through line first. We haven't told anyone yet so of course I had to wait. It was totally not fair to make the starving pregnant lady go through line last!!! I guess there are benefits to spilling the beans early on.

My DH made it up to me, however. He bought me earrings for mother's day!! He's bought me jewelry only a couple times ever, so it's really special to me. Seems like he's getting more excited about the pregnancy too. Anyone else's DH/partner do anything special for mother's day?

Hi ladies - I'm still a bit in shock...we only got the BFP yesterday, after me wondering what was taking my AF so bloody long to come... uh, hello.

But my wonderful dh took the kids and me to Butchart Gardens for Mother's Day - a beautiful 55 acre garden site just 30 minutes north of us. The kids behaved SO well, we saw lots of gorgeous flowers, I took lots of pics, there was ice cream - Mother's Day ROCKED this year!

We just got back from the best Mother's Day weekend ever.

May 9th was our 4th anniversary, and I convinced DH to take me to a little bed and breakfast and leave the girls with his parents, so we could celebrate properly. So... Friday afternoon we drove the two hours to his parents house and dropped off the girls. Then we went to a little bed & breakfast which was only five minutes from his parents. I got a nice relaxing bubble bath in the HUGE whirlpool tub before we went out to dinner. We both ate so much for dinner that we didn't want dessert right away... but we both knew we'd want it later. So we stopped at a grocery store on the way back to the inn, and bought two pints of ice cream. We left them in the cooler I'd brought to store pumped breastmilk, and ate them later that night.

We had a wonderful relaxing evening together and I ended up falling asleep sometime between 12 and 1am while watching a movie. I woke up about 8am... engorged, but totally rested. A full hot breakfast was brought to our room and we ended up checking out early because we missed our girls.

Then we spent Saturday relaxing with DH's family, and my MIL went on a nice long drive with me to help our girls take a nap. When I got up Sunday morning and went to get breakfast there was a pile of presents at my place along with a small bouquet of tulips (my favorite flower!!). That was the 4th time since I met my husband that he bought me flowers. (Once while we were dating, once the day he proposed, once right after I miscarried in 2004, and then this Mother's Day!!!) We went to church with DH's family, then all the men cooked dinner for the women. It was wonderful to see everyone, and not to have to cook.

Such a relaxing weekend!!! I think I'm ready to get back to business now... hopefully that weekend will last me a few months, because I'm not sure we'll have time or funds to do it again for a while.

Mmmm Mamas, those Mother's Days sound so nice! It's good to hear examples of dh's showing their love and affection, and mamas getting to relax some. How lovely!!!

This Mother's Day I got a bouquet of faux flowers from dd (made from colourful straws, construction paper, a paper towel and gold string) as well as an adorable card that says I LOVE YOU MOMMY and MOMMY BE HAPPY (?). It's covered in her scribblings and her KISSES! She put lipstick kisses all over the card, it's covered in her cute fat lips! SO ADORABLE!!!!!!!!! This made my day.

I was a bit surprised that dh, who normally pamper[ed] me [BEFORE CHILD WAS BORN] did zilcho. We were standing in line at the store buying Mother's Day cards for our mothers, and he turned to me and said, "You don't mind that I didn't buy you anything, do you?" : :

Dh ended up taking me out for a lovely lunch and bought me a video game I wanted for mother's day.

Today I started spotting. I've been crying all day even though I tell myself not to worry because it's not bright red or gushing. I have been cramping so thats what makes my fears worse. If it happens it happens, but I'm just really low today so if ya'll could say a little prayer for me I'd appreciate it.

That's soo cute I can't wait for DS to be old enough to do that stuff
