    Julie & Bug


    w/g: Still down 4 lbs

    s/c: Um, not much to complain about currently. My skin is sort of clearing up, my boobs don't hurt as bad... I still start to feel horribly sick if I don't eat regularly, though. I have to keep snacks on hand.

    Other: Not much going on there, either. Had family photos done on Saturday and they're wicked cute. Can't wait til they're ready to be picked up on the 27th. Planning for K's 1st bday party this Saturday... have lots to do at home to get ready!

    Next d/a: Routine OB on 4/23, and "big" u/s on 5/7

    Mandy & Peanut (baby girl)

    21 weeks 5 days

    w/g: Not sure, but not too much (I think). I will find out next week.

    s/c: LOTS of movement! Crazy amounts of movement! I am already feeling parts (knees or elbows) going across my belly! DH can't believe how much he can feel already too! I am already feeling movement up above my belly button! Overall, I am feeling great. I am VERY hungry lately and am trying to fill up with the right kind of calories, which is hard with all of the Easter candy and cookies that have somehow made their way into my house.

    Other: TRIGGERS!!! Today was pretty hard on me, emotionally. Today we took Gwen to her 1 year appt and they had to give her several vaccines (shots) in her legs and then we had to take her to the lab for blood work for routine tests. It is always hard to hold her while they give her shots, but that is usually pretty fast. It was literally the hardest thing I have ever had to do in my entire life to hold her down while she screamed and stared at me in the eyes as I could see the nurse digging in her arm with the needle looking for vein. I broke down while holding her and cried like a fool. Like, convulsions while crying. They almost had to call another nurse in to take my place. Then my DH made a stupid comment when he saw that I was crying and said "Hormonal much?!". I would have cried whether or not I was pregnant!

    Well, he is also sick with food poisoning or something so I have been caring for Gwen (poor baby girl, sore after her shots) and my DH all day. I wouldn't mind, except he has been throwing up and it is just gross. I can't wait until whatever this is makes it's way out of his system.

    Next d/a: Next week!!! Probably just a quick one but I have tons of Q's about my placenta previa I just found out about.

    Pam & Baby N #2


    w/g: Still about even.

    s/c: Not much here, just some bloat down in the region. LOL.

    Other: I am still somewhat in denial about this pregnancy! I've only told two friends and my sister. It just feels so weird since it was a surprise. Lots to get ready for. We will need a new car, probably move...eek!

    Next d/a: Friday for an US at my RE. Once that is over with, I will be very relieved and believe this is real!

    Julie - Glad you've got nothing much to report, that's always good.
    Mandy - So sorry about the shots and so sorry you are taking care of DH. So hard.
    Kristy - You are in the home stretch!
