    Weight gain: 19 pounds (3 pounds in a week UGH!)

    Symptoms/Conditions: Had a pretty good week other than the cramping. Seem's to happen everyday and I'm not sure if it's my herniated disk bothering me or being pregnant. Other than that just minor rib pain.

    Other: DH went back to work today after 2 weeks vacation. I already miss him being home all day with me

    Next appointment: July 31st MW.

    w/g: 13lbs

    s/c: ECP is really coming on strong specially since LO has his feet stuffed in my cervix. DR said at my appt last week that i have a low-lying placenta so i hope that corrects itself.

    other: painting rooms so we can move our DD's into the bigger room and this LO into DD's old room.

    Next Appt: August 14th, 1 hour glucose

    Erica and blue team baby...still no name

    23 wks

    Weight gain: 10 lbs (since my last appointment which was 4 weeks ago, had to push my appointment to next week due to a scheduling conflict with work and I know my weight gain is going to be every bit of at least 5 lbs if not more)

    Symptoms/Conditions: ECP and horrible hip pain. It has become really difficult to do the steps at home because of my hips but I still keep trucking on and I continue to walk my mile everyday.

    Other: This baby is going to come out a soccer player or acrobat or something for how much he is flipping, kicking, jabbing and moving around these days. He is already making my belly move with his kicks!! I love it though.

    Next appointment: July 23rd ob
    Erica (29), DH (31), DD (4) and baby No. 2 on the way EDD 11/14/12 blue team!!!

    Weight gain: Very little due to going swimming regularly

    Symptoms/Conditions: Butt and leg pain and extreme fatigue from camping all last week.

    Other: This little guy won't stop moving. He's always doing flips and is kicking my bladder. I had to pee enough without him kicking my bladder now I have to go twice as often.
