I have gotten many comments this pregnancy, today one lady stopped me at work and asked if I was pregnant (LOL, we wear smocks so it is pretty hard to see unless I am taking the smock off which I was).  I told her I was 28 weeks and she told me that I look great.  So nice of her!  Other women have commented about how I am carrying all in the front (which I am compared to DD) so it really makes DH and I wonder if the old wives' tale could be true for us again this time.  I got huge with DD and not so much this time, could just be my body though I guess...older, not underweight this time, etc.  It would be great to have a boy, but we are definitely happy with whichever gender we are blessed with.  I just can't believe it is getting so close!  Another lady at work told me her daughter was born at 29 weeks and she is a thriving 8th grader now...:)  Makes me feel good that we are well past the viability stage... 

On to the sweets...I haven't craved sweets much this pregnancy (with DD I did, sweets and pickles) but today I bought a bunch of girl scout cookies.  Something I should have thought about beforehand was if I passed my 3 hour GTT or not...I called and I did pass, if not those cookies would have had to wait!  

I also talked a bit with DH about how quick things are happening this time around, we could have a baby in 8 or so weeks!  He was a bit shocked at that (as am I) and knows that we have to get things going with the baby's room.  It is almost cleared out, but there are quite a few things that I will have to "find" a place for somewhere else in the house...

So much to do...:)


  1. Awww! I'm glad you're getting compliments. That must feel awesome. Enjoy your cookies! Yummy!

  2. OMG, we still haven't done anything either. We actually cleaned out the guest bedroom (soon to be nursery) closet and now it's got baby stuff in it rather than our junk. But not like organized or put together or anything. It helps that we have all the stuff from Charlie so we don't have to buy much- but we do need to put the bassinet back together and get clothes and linens ready and diapers. And we have no crib for the new baby, the plan is just to stick him in the bassinet in our room for a few months and reevaluate whether Charlie can move to bed at that point or whether we need to buy a second crib. So much to think about!

  3. Stinnie - It is a lot to think about...:)

  4. I have someone living in our nursery right now! I'm going nuts! LOL. Good luck, hon!
