No, we are going to finish sorting through things this weekend, have our bedroom painted and hopefully paint the nursery in February. Her crib won't be here until March. 3. How long are you going to be on maternity leave? Right now the plan is to take 4 weeks off, and the 5th and 6th week work very part-time, going back to f/t the 7th week. 4. What is your favorite food or biggest craving right now? This week it has been leftover turkey sandwiches with a little bit of Miracle whip...yum 5. What is the most irritating thing someone has said to you about your pregnancy? One of them - I can't believe how much weight the doctors let you girls gain now (my grandma, apparently when she had my dad the dr didn't want them to gain hardly any) 6. What is the nicest thing someone has said to you about your pregnancy? I am so happy for both of you, you are going to be great parents and kids are such a blessing 7. How are you feeling today? Exhausted. I haven't slept well the last few nights and have had really bad leg cramps. 8. What book or movie have you read/watched recently? Currently reading The Dresden Files series by Jim Butcher (excellent) and watched The Bride Wars yesterday, it was cute. 9. Do you feel your LO move often, if you are feeling movement yet? I feel her move off and on, I have a feeling she sleeps alot. 10. What's for breakfast? I was going to make breakfast tacos but depending on when my DH wakes up we might go out for breakfast...I don't feel like cooking.

Yay!!! Fun Poll 1. What is your EDD? May 28th,2010 2. Do you have your nursery finished yet? OMG don't even get me started. We don't have a nursery as of yet. We have a two bedroom home and DS is in one and DH and I in another, but we do have a room that is 30feet long and 15 feet wide. We are going to divide it into two rooms and add two closets in the bedroom portion of the room. DH is a good carpenter and can build a house from the ground up, but getting him started and agreeing with his ideas is two different things. She may be stuck in the bassinet in our room for a while. 3. How long are you going to be on maternity leave? I will probably take 6 weeks but am hoping for 8. 4. What is your favorite food or biggest craving right now? I crave veggies and sweets. Nothing particular just veggies and sweets. This little girl doesn't like meat. 5. What is the most irritating thing someone has said to you about your pregnancy? My goodness you are big. Are you sure your not having twins. 6. What is the nicest thing someone has said to you about your pregnancy? I am genuinely happy for you and DH and can't wait to meet your little girl. 7. How are you feeling today? Extremely sleepy and tired. I am not sleeping well at all. I have bad arthritis in both of my hips and having to lay on my sides to sleep is not helping that. The rain doesn't help either. 8. What book or movie have you read/watched recently? Here lately I can't seem to get interested in a book. That isn't like me since I write and I haven't wanted to do that either. I did see a good movie the other day on lifetime called The Plain Truth. 9. Do you feel your LO move often, if you are feeling movement yet? She moves often, but only at specific times of the day. She will move a little in the morning some around lunch and some at night. She wiggles more after I eat. I love feeling it and knowing that she is there. 10. What's for breakfast? I had breakfast at 3 am this morning since I am at work at that time. I had powdered donuts and a french vanilla mocha. I know I know, not the best choice. Hey I was desperate to wake up a little. Cool Poll!! Thanks

I have had like 20 ultrasounds, YES I am sure. 6. What is the nicest thing someone has said to you about your pregnancy? It feels really good when I get the occassional compliment on how I look. I have only gained 4 lbs so it is all baby. My Dr. told me how good I looked at my last appt. That was really sweet. 7. How are you feeling today? Kind of rough. I did not sleep well at all last night. My body is really achy and Izzie is way up in my ribs so everytime she moves it feels like she is about to breakout. I call her Renesme all of time.

I know when she is awake and I know when she is sleeping. 10. What's for breakfast? Hostess mini chocolate donuts.
