    We do have names in mind but we decided to keep them a secret till she is born. We are down to 2 names and will wait till she comes out to pick which one we think suits her best.

      I'm glad to hear everyone is doing good and hanging in there.
      Martha - I hope the D thing goes away soon! Take care of yourself and keep us posted.
      Sarah - that's so exciting that you find out soon. Alot of us will find out very soon.....so exciting!! I hope my doc doesn't make me wait til I'm 19 or 20 weeks!!
      o.k., so I wake up at least 3 times a night to pee - every night! It sucks!!! I also find myself laying on my back alot. I try not too, but when I wake up in the middle of the night and I'm there, it freaks me out a little and I move immediatly. I told James if he catches me on my back to roll me over :) LOL!

        the weight of your uterus can put too much pressure on your Vena Cava which can cut off your circulation to the lower part of your body.

          I asked my doctor about sleeping on your back (and I've read in several books) that said to try to avoid sleeping on your back, but you'll wake up if there's too much pressure or anything like that. If you are a back sleeper, it's easy enough to have a small pillow partially under you so you aren't completely flat (incase you're worried).

          I'm a side sleeper, unless I'm passed out drunk, which hasn't happened since getting pregnant. :)

            See I thought it would cut off circulation to the baby. So it's only cutting off circulation to MY lower body...nothing to do with the baby?
            I still have alot to learn. That's why I love you girls!

              "Most women find that laying on their right or left side is most comfortable during pregnancy. Laying on your back is not recommended, as this can compress your inferior vena cava. If you compress this vein you'll find your blood flow restricted and you may feel lightheaded while laying down or upon rising. The left sided sleep position is easily achieved with a pregnancy pillow.

              Most doctors recommend that pregnant women lie on their left side. This promotes optimal blood flow to your body and uterus. If however you find that you are more comfortable on your right side, there is no reason you shouldn't sleep on this side. Most women will also find they need added support while sleeping. This can most easily be accomplished through use of a body pillow. You may find it helps to tuck a body pillow under your belly and legs, and then also use a smaller pillow to support your back so you don't roll over on your back while sleeping.

              If you do find you rolled onto your back while sleeping, don't panic. Simply roll back onto one of your sides and go back to sleep. Most women will find a position they are comfortable enough in to catch some zzz's. Some women find they do best in a semi-reclined position. You may for example find that you sleep better in a recliner or in a position similar to that a recliner might put you in. If this is the case, go for it. What matters is your comfort, not the exact position you fall asleep in."

                Mo, if you really want to eat some deli meat, find some Boar's head, supposedly that's the better one...but I avoided it pretty much all together.

                  Ok so why can't you eat deli meat? Perservatives or something?
