Hi all! Sorry I haven't been around lately. I haven't had a second free from my daughter in forever and I keep falling asleep on the couch when I finally do have some computer time. I'll try to come back with individual responses soon. Hoping you are all feeling well! Congrats to the few of you gra...

Re:

Hi Ladies! 11w3d here. My tight jeans are starting to be just a little too tight--today I gave in to wearing them unbuttoned with a hair tie holding them together. I should probably pick up a bella band at some point, but this works for now. LTP, have a great time in Napa! Are you planning on tastin...

baby name re:SS list and popularity

I read that there is a much wider diversity of names than there used to be, so even if you're going with a name in the top ten, it still is not as common as a top ten name would have been 30 years ago. One of our girl names is a family name that didn't used to be common but is now in the top 10. Eve...

Re: "Just Barely" Pregnant PS''ers

How cool that you guys have friends pregnant at the same time! I have a couple who are, but only one is local and she's due next month, so well ahead of me.

We got to see the baby at our appt this morning! Woohoo!

Re:

LTP, so thrilled for you!!! My sympathies to the ladies who are having bad morning sickness. I have lucked out on this pregnancy. It hasn't been bad at all, especially if I eat every few hours. I am hungry pretty much constantly though and my boobs hurt like hell. I'll be 10 weeks on Sunday and I ha...

Re: "Just Barely" Pregnant PS''ers

Woohoo! Congrats, Marlie! I had my intake appointment on Tuesday--it was mostly just information on nutrition, the midwife program, and genetic counseling options. They also took height, weight, & blood pressure, as well as blood & urine samples for my prenatal tests. My bp was elevated for ...

Re: I just love Leslie Knope.

She is my hero! I love Parks & Rec. Can't wait to see what they do with the final season!

P.S. Ron Swanson is amazing. My favorite bits in the show are the moments when he is gleeful about something.

Raise Your Hand for an Engagement Selfie

Interesting article. Wondering what PSers think of it. Personally, I can't even keep my nails painted, so I'd never shell out for plastic surgery on my hands.

Re: Need car suggestions

I drive a 2003 VW Jetta TDI Wagon--it gets ~50 miles to the gallon and runs great, even with well over 100,000 miles on it.

Congrats on the good scans, ladies! I can't wait for mine. It's not happening until the 11th--2 and a half weeks seems like ages!

Good ideas! I had a spritzer last time we were out with friends, similar to the cranberry & soda water trick. Last night we went to a housewarming party, though, and it was a little tough. It's like "hey, I make wine for a living but I'm a teetotaler..."

I don't know if it counts as real morning sickness, since I'm not vomiting or anything, but I sure feel a bit under the weather. I'm hoping bubbly water and a good d...

I have also been craving avocados like crazy. I have eaten an inordinate amount of guacamole. Chocolate, on the other hand, is making me...

Re:

I'm also stressing every time I do (or don't) have a symptom. Yesterday I felt a carsick, today I'm ok, so I'm like "oh no, something must be wrong". I hit 12 weeks on July 27th and it can't come quickly enough. It's amazing how protective I feel over this little life growing inside me. It...

I can't wait until I hit the 12 week mark so I don't have to keep my excitement in check quite as much. I'm glad that you haven't had any more spotting. Also, so funny that your husb...

As far as symptoms, I feel like I'm peeing a lot and I'm tired, but that could be because of my marathon last Saturday.
