    Nothing exciting,just the normal pregnancy stuff. I have noticed that my skin has gotten itchy ,I will talk to the Dr. tomorrow about it. Hopefully that's nothing. Today I have been doing lots of laundry b/c I got out all the baby clothes that I had put away.
    Hopefully you had a good weekend.

    It was a busy monday. I can't believe its almost march as well
    Heather and baby Aubrey
    33w6d
    w/g: about 32-35lb (ugh- thinking about still having another 3-5 wks of 1.5-2lb wg not looking forward to it)

    Nothing real exciting here either. I have had a few problems with pain and pressure and I had very timeable painful contractions on saturday. Pretty sure it was lack of fluids. But thankfully after I got home (it was during date night no less). I was able to lay down and that helped. Ive noticed that I am getting more stretch marks too. Fun times. We have our baby shower for family/friends on sunday so that should be interesting. Oh and Lee is going to get his tattoo tomorrow with Aubreys name so we can announce the name. I did end up telling my mom since she won't be at the baby shower due to work and a 3 hour drive but she did say she was going to work on being here for carsons birthday and birth of aubrey which is cool. I haven't seen my mom since august.

    Hope all goes well at your appt!

    You must be excited to see your mom soon.That's great. My parents are coming for Allison's birth too. Last I saw them was for Thanksgiving when we went to Florida.
    Hopefully you will feel better but that's kind of hard at this point.
    My appt went well,next time they'll do the Strep B test.

    Gotta love the strep b test . This time I don't have to do it. My ob said that she doesn't see the point since aubrey won't be going down that road. Some ob's will still do it but she said we don't have to. Thats awesome that your paren'ts will get to come up.

    Boo for the stretch marks.We are doing a wonderful thing,bringing amazing human beings to this world and what do we get,stretch marks. Are you using anything? I use Bio-oil,I like that stuff in general for scars. I have a small burn in my arm and bio-oil helped a lot,I can barely see it now.

    I have never tried it. I am just using either the cocoa butter lotion thats supposed to be for stretch marks (can't remember the name). Or I use an unscented lotion. I am considering using coconut oil though because i've hear its really good for the skin. I bought some just haven't used it yet. Definitely boo for stretch marks. Its only fair that the guys should get stretch marks instead I think since we have to do all the hard work
