Congrats to you too!!! Are you going to find out the name? We won't because they don't want anyone to tell them they don't like it ahead of time.

Thank you April, yes they decided on Jada, they're just not sure on how they want to spell it yet.

Congratulations Cluless on your new granddaughter. Love the name Jada.

April- DS and DIL wouldn't tell the names they were thinking of either for the same reason as yours.

Looks like both of you get to start shopping for cute girlie things.

Ours is still the elephant in the room. Since we lost the first pregnancy and they have no answer yet what is wrong with her heart, we cannot talk about the baby. Saturday we went over for a family party. There she is, all pregnant belly, and no one dare mention it. No shopping, no happy talking about pregnancy. Tuesday we find out more.

Clueless-So funny about being warned about the girlie clothes. My kids still have to remind me every once in a while that I don't have to get the grandchildren everything I see I think they "need".

I've been busy! Update from us: they went to fetal cardiologist who did an echocardiogram for an hour and found nothing wrong!!!! He said they could come back again if they wanted but to just continue with the OB with the expectation everything is fine. She must have outgrown the problem. In the meantime, she is jumping around like a little bean and mommy is MUCH happier!

Sorry I've been MIA.

Glad to hear new mom's-to-be are doing good. Hope all grandma's are doing good too.

April, what a thoughtful MIL you are. Such a pretty ring.

Very happy to hear it's all good April. Little peanut is starting to move quite a bit and is hurting and not making poor mommy sleep Grandma just smiles and responds "Ain't Karma a Biatch" lol ( I'm not so mean, I am hugging and kissing her while I'm saying this lol)She has a Dr.'s appointment on Thursday and starts getting followed at the high risk clinic on Friday.

Well the birthday present went over very well! Time is flying by ( for me, not her) and she looks great! All is well. On the other hand, I am having my knee replacement of 1.5 years redone on Tuesday. By the time I recover again it will be near time!

lol sorry April see what happens when one assumes, she is precious. We wanted to have the baby shower this week-end also, but because of the long week-end many of her friends won't be here and a few others have weddings to attend. So if all goes well her's should be for Sept.21.
