    Julie & Little Dude


    w/g: 9 lbs

    s/c: Hip pain/back stiffness if I sit for too long, which means I'm constantly getting up from my desk at work just to walk down the hall and back. Lots of BHC. Nesting kicked in over the weekend. My closets are SPOTLESS, haha!

    Other: Have 8 bug bites after our day trip to a local lake on Saturday; DH forgot the bug spray. So itchy!! On the plus side, DS got to swim quite a bit, which was new and very exciting for him

    Next d/a: The 13th for a routine OB
    Julie (28) DH (36).

    Becky & baby Josephine (trying it out!)
    16 wks 3 days
    w/g- 6 I think!! (vent- was 2 pounds, but family has been visiting for past 4 wks, tons of fast food/eating out (8 houseguests 3 of us, didn't want to try to cook/clean for 11 people! Discouraging b/c I know its mostly fat, not baby weight! Plan to get back to walking asap and hoping to even things out a bit )

    s/c My lower back and RLP are sore and annoying this week. We have traveled a lot (3 trips 5 hrs or less each way in the last 2 weeks). No concerns but just tired of being sore! Otherwise I feel pretty good right now and I am just so thankful everything is going well!!

    next d/a- I think the 13th for a routine OB
