Kelly - congratulations! WElcome, Kerrington! The photo shoot is just adorable. She's beautiful I love the pics with your hands in them (or DH's) that show just how small she is. And pics of her on your DH are so cute!
Summer, she's so cute! And a full head of hair too Congrats again!
I forget - are you pronouncing it Meeka or M-eye-ka?
Someone asked about names: we have about 5 on a short-list so far so we're working on middle names for each of the 5 names. Boy names were so hard for us, so we're happy about agreeing and liking 5 girl names together! I don't know if they'll change so we're not sharing them right now. We're going to try to just do it together and not be influenced. It's a big decision.
Bisha - exciting about Gavin's first smiles. Those are so precious
Angel - ouch on the stripping membranes... sounds brutal.
Amy - I can't believe that Austin is a year old. I think I was around when you had him - yep, I would have been already planning our wedding. And I was probably already peeking in on this thread. Happy Bday Austin! And congrats on Baby #2. When are you due?

Otherwise the doctor says finger tip dialated, fully engaged and fully effaced. So... the end is definitely coming, but this little girl has been an unpredictible one the entire pregnancy so I fully plan on labor being the same! She'll probably be forced to come out. She seems quite comfortable with her hinder buns under my ribs!!

Trisha- I know how you feel, I'm terrified too! But, I must admit- I'm really looking forward to this baby coming out. I'm sooooo swollen, it's difficult for me to walk. I tripped and fell going up the stairs yesterday because it was difficult for me to fold my ankle; they're huge!!
My DH and I start our classes at the hospital today. Tonight is L & D, next week is Baby Care Basics, then my last one is Breastfeeding. We also started putting the baby furniture together, so it's nice to see everything coming along finally!
I hope everyone else is doing great!

Kev's Girl- It's pronounced as me-ka
I'm finally not bombarded with company..As nice as the help has been, it's so nice to just have my house to myself right now! We've had people staying here since Mikka was born..Two weeks ago! So it's been a long time since I've been able to even get on the computer much. And I figured I should finally put up a delivery story...
My water broke at 1 am, my uncle and his wife were staying with us so I just crawled into bed. I felt like a rubber band snapped inside of me, which Nick's mom told me that's how it felt when her water broke so I kind of started panicking and got up and ran to the bathroom it was kinda just trickling at first then I sat on the toilet and it just gushed out of me...It was rather gross. Nick was downstairs watching tv still so that made me more worried cause I couldn't just yell at him because my aunt and uncle were sleeping. I grabbed the towel off the rack and held it between my legs so I didn't dribble all over our hardwood when I went to yell at him. I had a false alarm of my water breaking before and now I know there is no mistaking it at all...It just wouldn't stop, it was gross! My doctor wanted me to head to the city for the delivery because of my blood pressure (even though it smartened up on it's own earlier) and also because the size they were expecting her to be. (Although, he kept telling me he didn't think there was any way she was over 8 pounds because I'm a rather small person, and my stomach really wasn't huge) So he wanted me to stop in at our hospital just to get checked and make sure that it wasn't false labor, or as it was in my case if my water broke that the cord hadn't started coming out. Then we had a two hour drive to the city. My contractions weren't too strong yet, but were coming every 3 minutes so it was a very uncomfortable drive. (The fact that my water was still coming out was also VERY uncomfortable!) We got to the hospital at about 3:30 in the morning. They checked me and I was still only at two cms which is what I was at my last prenatal appointment. If my water hadn't have broke, they would have sent me home..but because we live so far away and my water broke they kept us there. They gave me a shot of demoral in hopes that it would help me sleep because I hadn't slept yet and was already exhausted. I woke up at about 8 (I think) and threw up all over myself and Nick. I'm not sure if this was from the demoral even though there was gravol in the shot too, but the nurse figured that meant that things were probably starting up more. I was at 3 cms then and they told me to get into the tub. I soaked in that for about four hours and it really helped at first but when the nurse popped her head in to see how I was doing I asked when I could get an epidural cause my contractions were getting to be unbearable, even in the hot water. So I got out and they checked me and I was at 6 already, I was ticked that I probably could have gotten the epidural about an hour earlier! I got the epidural and slept for four hours. When I woke up I was feeling the urge to push, and they checked me and I was ten. So I started pushing..and pushed..and pushed.....For three LONG hours. At two hours the nurse had to call the dr in because at that point some might need the help of forceps or vacuum, but the nurse was certain I was still progressing on my own and they didn't need to use those yet. Thank goodness, so two more hours of pushing and finally Mikka came!! The nurses couldn't believe how huge she was and said it was no wonder I had to push that long. Mikka didn't cry for them, but was alert and looking around so they weren't concerned about her, but when they handed her to dad you could hear she had liquid in her lungs or something that needed to come out, they were going to call the nicu nurses to come look at her, but the nurse managed to get her to cry finally and she cleared her airway on her own. Thank goodness, I was getting worried! I tore pretty badly, so they took awhile to stitch me up. The doctor wouldn't even tell me how many stitches she gave me, I'm assuming I probably don't wanna know!! She was definitely worth all the pain and pushing! I was hoping not to have an epidural, but so glad I got it or else there is no way I would have been able to deliver her vaginally, I would have been way too exhausted. She's so content and sleeps awesome, I wouldn't have been too tired leaving the hospital if we could have gotten a private room. They were all full and so we could only get a semi private one, and the people we shared with's baby cried constantly! It was nice to get home and get some sleep. Mikka only wakes up about every four hours to eat and goes right back to sleep, we're so lucky! Hopefully it just keeps getting better!!
She was already 10.5 at her first check up, she's changed so much already!!

As someone whose first post on this thread was way back on page 7, I wanted to come back and see if anyone else is on baby #2 like we are! So far, I haven't seen anyone. It is great to see so many of you that I recognize from planning your weddings on this thread!
If I can remember how to add pix here, I'll update my baby (who is 13 months now!). I hope to check back more often!
You are one of a few on #2. Nicole and Tammy (Host) are also expecting. I think that might be it - maybe. A few of us are trying, so I'm sure it won't be long for more to come.
Congrats ladies on your new bundles of joy! Just precious!

I just wanted to let everyone know that if you plan on nursing and you need a cover up I have a promo code for a free one from Uddercovers.com the code is Planning. You just have to pay shipping which is $7.95 the code saves you $32.00. I have used this and I got a pink one. They are cute, I wouldn't pay $32.00 for it but I def. would (and have) paid $7.95! Hope this helps someone! Happy 4th!

Lisa~ So great to see you again! Your siggy pic is so cute! Good luck on trying for #2! It is so different being pregnant the 2nd time! The first time, the pregnancy was my whole focus, and now, it's Austin! Very different! Glad to be past my first trimester, and hoping to get some energy back!
On a sad note, found out today that my step-bro and his wife received terrible news about their baby. They're due on Thanksgiving, but found out today that the baby will either die or have major developmental issues. I don't know the details, because I got the info from DH who got it from my step-bro, and I just can't bring myself to talk to step-sis-in-law or step-mom about it yet. I am SOOO sad for them! This will be their first child, and they were SOOO excited to be parents and give Austin a cousin! I'm hoping the best for them!
Take care, Everyone!

Congratulations Alyssa!! It goes by so fast so enjoy it while you can. So exciting!
So after my routine appointment my midwife notices my bp is high. After a nst she determines bed rest is the best thing for me right now. No fun. She was afraid of pre eclampsia, after further testing I do not have it but still need to stay on bed rest until I deliver in a few weeks!
