Vanessa - So sorry to hear about your friend. I had a friend a few months back who had a still birth little girl. I can't imagine delivering a perfect, fully formed little baby that held no heart beat. Very, very sad for your friend. I'd say it's best for you to stop the research on this subject until after you deliver. You don't need any extra stress or worry at this time.
I saw the pics you put op of the baby's room. I love the colour in the room....it looks so soothing Smile I think that's crazy that all the Summer babies in the Summer Forum (-yours) have already been delivered. The Fall baby forum is so packed its kinda hard to keep track of everyone! You can stop in and visit us there if you'd like!

Ash - Countdown is on for the shower, eh?! Exciting. I love baby shoowers Smile I hope that you end up with all the things you are needing. I really can't believe how close you are to having little Deagan in your arms! Do you have all the big things already?

Mo - Camilla is suach a cutie! Did your DH make it home yet? How is she sleeping for you? I sure hope you have a sweet little angel on your hands.....especially during the time that DH is gone.

AFM - Baby is getting strong. Kicks are now hard enough to move my whole belly. DH laughs when he sees it. Also, because this is my third, my stomach muscles are pretty separated and it allows me to feel the baby pretty well. DH had his hand by my belly button this morning and baby was rolling around and DH could feel something hard roll over his hand. Must have been a knee or a foot...either way it was a pretty freaky feeling for DH but he thought it was pretty cool as well. The kids both felt and saw baby move this past week. Its so cute to watch their reactions....they are getting pretty excited! Not much else new to report....been pretty busy all week. I am just home for 2 days now and then I head back out to the lake.

Tasha-Glad the kids finally were patient enough to feel the baby move! Isn't it so funny when the kicks move your whole belly all over! I love watching it! Yes countdown is on for the shower! I'm getting kind of nervous because i'm not the center of attention kind of person and lots of people give me anxiety lol. We are doing a cook out type shower so there will be 60 or more people there...both guys and girls. It should be interesting! We have all of the big stuff (except the crib mattress, but my brother is supposed to be getting that for us) just need all the small stuff now!

Mo-How are you doing? How is little Camilla?

Vanessa-Storm's room looks amazing! I love the color as well! How are you doing?

AFM-I'm hoping that people are actually looking at my registries because nothing has been bought off of them! It's mostly just small stuff so i'm not too worried about it, but we are just hoping that we don't get just clothes because we have a lot of those already lol. I guess we will find out next weekend! I'm not a big social person so i'm kind of nervous about all the people that will be there! I will just have to deal I suppose! Off topic we had to go to the ER on Monday because hubby lost function on the left side of his face. Turns out he has bell's palsy and there is about an 80% chance that it will return to normal anywhere from 2 weeks to 6 months from now! I feel so bad for him! He gets very frustrated because he cant' sleep that well because his one eye wont fully close and eating is a pain in the ass because he can't really chew on that side. The one side of his tongue went numb too so he is now talking funny Sad Such a crappy deal, but it least its not something worse. Other than taking care of him I had to go get blood work done today and I have a baby doc appointment on Monday for my 34 week check! Getting very close! I hope he comes early (between 37-40 weeks) I want him here so bad! I just feel like he is safer out here than in my belly! I'm so terrified of something happening!!!

Hope everyone is doing well!!!

Ash ~ I know what you mean on so many of those topics!! Pregnancy is so much about "trust" isn't it?! That's what my acup tells me all the time. I love feeling the kicks, and knowing that she's active and doing well Wink As for the shower, too bad you can't drink a little (a bad coping skill probably, but....) I'm sure you will do great! What is it about baby clothes? We have SOOOOOO much, from presents to hand-me-overs, she can never wear ALL of them! On one hand it seems like such a waste, but really it's out of my control. Sorry about your DH's health issues, I hope that it gets better soon!

Tash - I may join you on the Fall forum, really, I'm only one month from your group! Thanks for that! And yes, no more research.... it is what it is.... (breathe, trust). I'm glad you like the color of the baby's room, we actually painted it that color about 5 years ago, and I've liked it continuously ever since. Was happy not to feel motivated to paint again, and hubbs is going to do murals on the walls - will post when he does!

AFM, went for a walk tonight, and I am such a slow walker now! I used to power walk, now, I AMBLE.... Besides that, just grateful to have seen the chiro today - she keeps me in good shape as I get larger and less mobile. The weather was very warm today, and I had to participate in an outdoor activity for work. My feet swelled, and I overheated, had difficulty cooling down! Won't do that again! I'm having my second shower this weekend, this one local to my house, maybe 25-30 people? Ash - sorry to post this, but we HAVE gotten a lot of our registry things! Totally blown away by our friends and family's generosity! I'm going to use AMAZON for any type of registry in the future - it's really easy, i love the free shipping, and I have fun cheating and looking at what folks have been buying for us! BONUS, is that most of the gifts get shipped to our house, so I don't have to do that lengthy present opening thang at the shower (not to sound ungrateful, but it's a lot of attention and I find it kinda tiring!). ANYWAY.... all's good that I know of, sending good thoughts to all of you!

Mo ~ hope DH has come home, and that Camilla is being a perfect lil' baby! I saw your post about fitting into your pre-pg shorts, and wanted to write something snarky, but really I'm just impressed (and still a tad jealous!) Good for you, I know you worked very hard to gain only 28 pounds, and you look great!

Ash - I can't believe that you are now over 35 weeks! Has reality set in that it could pretty much happen almost any given day now??!! You must be getting so anxious, excited, scared. I've read on FB that you've been having a hard time with the heat?! That sucks....Try a lawn chair and a sprinkler Smile That way you don't have to try to get up and out of the bathtub! I'll just hope for you that the weather is a little better for you this next month so that you won't have to suffer too much. It looks like your baby shower was a huge success!?

Mo - How is Camilla doing? Sorry to hear that you are having to cut out dairy. Poor thing (I'm talking about you and baby here)....I can't believe that a month has already passed! Jeez, the time sure flies once the babies pop out Smile I hope you're enjoying every minute of her!

Vanessa - So glad you joined out Fall Forum Smile

AFM - not much to report. I'm heading off today to spend some time at with DH at the air base. This is the first week I go that I won't have to drive back and forth within a short amount of time. I've pulled DH out for the last week of school which means I shouldn't have to make the 2 1/2 hour drive home again until my next baby doctor appointment in early July. I'll be checking in to see any messages on here....I know everyone is busy and doesn't have much time to write and seeing as we are all on FB I guess we don't really need to get on here for all our updates anymore.

Ash - I'll be waiting to hear about Deagans birth! I'm so excited Smile

Hi Ladies!
I see that all of you are doing well.

Ash: Any day now, I am so excited to meet your little guy. So happy you were able to get a ton of stuff at your shower.

Tash: I will be thinking of you with your next dr appt, things are really starting to go quickly. I can't believe how far along you are. I enjoy seeing your pics on FB, you have the cutest prego belly:)

Vanessa: I know there is a lot to be worried about but I hope you realize that you are in the best hands possible, Gods. I am not a religious phanatic but I do believe in God and I do believe that he is watching over you and your family. Everything will work out and you will have an even more gorgeous family in no time at all.

AFM: Things have been really busy with trying to get the nursery completed, which took a month. I plan to post pics today. Then, DH has been on a week and off a week so things are really crazy with that because when he is here, he's not really here, b/c he is working late or we are trying to get 80 million things done in a small amount of time. Plus, there are so many birthday parties, or other events. My sister and her family are back in Germany but it was so good to see them. Camilla has been doing really well but like anyone, or any baby, some days are better than others. However, I count myself lucky b/c she sleeps a good bit at night, I couldn't believe Sat into Sun she slept 8 hours, that was Chris' father's day gift but I was really thankful too:) Anyway, I have not followed the dairy thing b/c I don't think that was the issue and so far so good. She is sleeping really well and doing well so we shall see. Time will tell. I am not going crazy with stuff but I am not cutting everything out either. I don't even eat a lot of dairy, Infact I have to substitue, but the day before DH and I went to Brusters (spelling) and I had their small cone which is about 5 scoops of ice cream and I think that is what did it since I don't eat a lot of ice cream or dairy to begin with. Other than that, things are well. Hope all is well with you ladies, I hope to check more often.
