Love the thread...

I'm thinking your lie is the hot dogs ...cause the laundry thing is totally believable at my house

1. My due date is my son's 2nd birthday

2. I want to live at the beach.

3. I'm not going to eat a dessert tonight.

I'm guessing Jess's lie is #2 - I mean, little man WAS born in September, so that's out - and what pregnant woman passes on dessert?????

1. I MET my ob/gyn on accident at the hospital today (as in, I've NEVER met him before!)

2. I'm a 'summer' vegetarian

3. My husband rubbed my feet EVERY day last week.

Julia(34), Mommy to: Maddie(10), Grace(6), Charlotte (3) and our only Little Man (due 2/23). 

It's a crazy life!

Winnie- Hmm I'm thinking you haven't gained 8 pounds.

Mine:

1. My due date is the same date as the day I got married to my exhusband.
2. I've begun reading to my unborn child
3. Watching the food network makes me feel quite grossed out

Oo, fun! Thanks, Octobermoon!

Let's see, Liz. I'm going to guess that you're going to try to trick us with the food network thing. Are you like me, and you're not feeling nauseous?

1. I switched to decaf coffee as soon as I found out I was pregnant.
2. If my baby is a week early, it could come on my birthday.
3. I'm hopefully going to be 8 months pregnant when I'm matron of honor at my best friend's wedding.

Tag, you're it!

Tear78: I dont think you switched to decaf. (I cannot stand the smell of coffee right now although I guess I could go for a Starbucks Frap!)

1.I am craving OJ and Apples
2. I cannot stand the smell/thought/sight of asparagus right now
3. I havent vomited yet this week

You're right Octobermoon, I don't drive a minivan. We currently have a Honda Civic. Once the new baby comes, we need a new car though. Our baby carseat won't fit behind the front seats, unless I drive super close to the dashboard. So maybe a minivan is in our future! ha ha.

Tear, I'm guessing that your baby won't be born on your birthday.
Mab, my guess is that you have thrown up this week.

1. My belly is so bloated at night that I look 4 months pregnant. It's fun to pretend that I'm really showing that much!
2. Our daughter is really excited to have a baby brother or sister.
3. I just ate a piece of pie for breakfast.

lizard28, that's right - i've lost 2 pounds.

Ravenstar - guessing that you did not have pie for breakfast? (I know I certainly look waaaay more pregnant at night so that one is possible!)

1. I have been exercising regularly
2. DP is going to take off 10 weeks pat leave when baby comes
3. I laboured to 9cm in the hospital waiting room with DS

I have been wicked nauseous but the food network makes me salivate. I woke up dreaming about pulled pork, so I'm thinking of making it for dinner tonight.

I'm guessing that your husband doesn't bring you tea every morning.

You are right for those that guessed. I didn't eat pie for breakfast. It was more of a mid-morning snack.

Octobermoon: yours is hard too! It's hard when we kind of know each other. It's good though, because now we're learning new things. I'm guessing that you like camping.

1. I broke my arm jumping off my bunk bed at age 5.
2. Right now I love the smell of brussel sprouts.
3. We have a cat who eats shoe laces.

lol, this is really fun.

Ok, I didn't switch to decaf right when I got the BFP, I've been drinking !@#$#@ decaf for months and months, just in case. lol.

Let me see...Ravenstar, I'm guessing brussel sprouts make you wanne :Puke right now. Octobermoon, I don't know why, but I would say that you LOVE camping. Harpercait, conceiving after xmas dinner.....really? I'm always completely bloated, and by the way...at my parents house. eew! lol...

1. I've slept 10-11 hours the last three nights.
2. I'd rather spend a week lying on a beach in a resort than hiking in the wilderness.
3. My SIL is due within a week of me.

Heh heh.

Actually:

1. TRUE He brings me tea every morning in bed, and has for years. Only exceptions are if he leaves before I'm awake, or I get up and get it myself first.
2. TRUE (I think) looks like turkey is the super conception food.
3. FALSE but complicated. I am technically my mother's only child. However last year we were reunited with a son she was forced to give up for adoption when she was young. He had 1 son already, and one on the way making my mum an insta-gramma! She's been trying to wrap her head around the role, and adjust to being Grand-Mere, and it's been tough, but she's getting the hang of it. SO my baby will make her a grandmother again in a different way, but technically she already is!

Hi there.
So yes, brussel sprouts smell horrible to me. At Christmas dinner I asked someone to please move them out of my smelling zone! That might have been a sign I was pregnant except I generally don't like them anyway.

Octobermoon, I'm guessing husband bringing you coffee. hmm.

1. I have my first prenatal visit with the midwife today!
2. I finally took a belly photo yesterday.
3. We have a cat who can open doors.

Mab Mama, you are correct. The only doors he can open are the sliding closet doors. He is a silly boy. He loves to eat shoe laces and now we have to keep all of our shoes in the closet, with a stick in the door to keep it from sliding.

Here's some more for me:

1. I think I got carpal tunnel from wearing my sea bands 24/7.
2. We have about 7 inches of snow on the ground and more is still falling.
3. I have lived in 4 states.

I am going to guess #3 as it seems plain enough to be made up.

Let me see.....
1. my puppy dog won't go outside without his doggy shoes on anymore
2. my 4 yr old is planning for a brother named Lucy
3. I have never gotten morning sickness

mamamia, I'm going to guess you don't feel rested when you wake up. I'm exhausted all the time! And, no, unfortunately, you're wrong. I DID eat icecream before cereal the other morning, promptly leading me to my first almost :Puke of the pregnancy. lol. I deserved it. :
