    Karma- We didn't get a drop of rain! We could have used some rain, but I am so happy we didn't get what the Houston/Gavleston area got.

    My best friend's -day is Nov. 7th...she wants Noah to be born on her b-day. Maybe they will both be born on that day!


    Our co-ed baby shower is this Saturday and I can't find ANYTHING to wear. Everything at Motherhood is for the winter....we don't get real winters here, especially in September....what the heck am I to wear?

      Karma - I think a scheduled induction is a great idea under the circumstances. I'm sure it is completely stressful not knowing when you will go into labor, having to deal with the kids and a business you can't leave alone. I'm sure your doctor will understand.

      Martha - I'm SO glad you guys didn't get bad weather. Wow - I can't believe you didn't even get rain. Crazy! We got a ton ton ton of rain and lots of wind. All was well here - just a long storm. I went to Motherhood to get a dress for my shower and they had a ton of things on the clearance rack. I got a cute dress for like $30. Did you hit the clearance racks?


      I had my sono yesterday. He's still a boy He was too cute, sticking his tonge out at us. She couldn't really get a get shot, but here's a couple. She said he is 3lbs 15ozs and is measuring around 32 weeks....his head is measuring 33w1d. Great, huh! She said all looks great and he had the cutest little lips. i think he has my nose but James said I couldn't tell. I say yes I could cause I'm the mom!

      His eyes are up in that triangle thing so you can't see them, then you can see his little nose and lips and chin and his fists are up by his head.

        Mo- Thanks for the reassurance and positive story! That makes me feel a lot better!

        Martha- Wow, that is crazy that you guys didn't get any rain. I'm happy for you though. It rained pretty much most of Saturday for us, but it was like a light rain on this side of town all day. Have you tried Old Navy or Gap? Lisa is right about the clearance racks. I got a really cute sleeveless dress at gap for like 29.99 when it was normally 80 a few weeks ago.

        Lisa- Ah, what a cutie pie! Hannah likes her hands by her head too. Looks like we will have to keep mittens on our little ones.

          You know I just found out that Gap carries maternity clothes. I've been having luck at Target too. I'm trying not to buy anything else, but I will most likely need some long sleeve shirts...

            Lisa, Luke is a cutie! I want another sono, but don't think I am getting one. Booo!


            I had my OB appt today and I am not leaking amniotic fluid, just regular discharge...He said the baby is still way up there, so that's good. He said my pain was "normal." I idn't get a good visit today....they had to reschedule everyone that had appts last Thurs and Fri because of Ike so I think they were busy....He didn't even measure my belly/cervix like he always does.

            I go back in 2 weeks then I start the weekly appts! I am getting so close! Woohoo!

            Oh, I found a cute dress on sale for $15 today! Unfortunately, since we moved back from S.A. to Corpus our Gap doesn't have a maternity area. I seriously only had Motherhood and Target, oh and JCP to choose from yeserday. I looked at the sale stuff at Motherhood, but a lot of it were the summer dresses that had spaghetti straps and I can't wear those.

            The dress I bought today isn't maternity, but it's so comfy and cute.

              Thanks Karma! I will definitely have to keep his nails trimmed and keep some mittens on :)

              That's great that you found a dress Martha! It just sucks looking for things that fit these days. Luckily I have 2 huge bags full of hand me downs, so every once in a while I will look through them if I get bored with what I'm wearing and I find something decent to add to the mix. Of course there are NO cute dresses in the clothes (of course!)

              That's great that you're not leaking and Noah is still up high. You really don't want to deliver too early. I've been having alot of discharge too. It's gross! Sometimes I wish I bring extra panties to work because it's just so much some days....I know...tmi...rofl!!

              We had our first child birth class last night. We just went over some things in the book adn anatomy. Kinda informative, but not so fun. Next week we will do a tour and see delivery rooms, etc. She also let us out 45 minutes early....uuummm hello...I paid $85 for this class and I want to get my $$ out of it. I was a little disappointed - but oh well.

                Lisa, that sucks. You paid for it so you could learn! It's not like it's a college class that you hope and pray lets out early....Hopefully they don't do that next time!

                Was your shower last weekend? How did it go? Ours is tomorrow. I am so excited to see some friends I haven't seen in over a year! Should be fun.

                How is everyone else?

                  I had my family shower on Saturday. It was my last one. All my showers were so much fun. I haven't posted any pics yet, but I will in the next few days. We got some great stuff, but still need to buy all of our big items and tons of small things. I will need to make a list of things I still really need and use my gift cards. Thank goodness for gift cards.

                  I did my first load of laundry last night - baby towels and wash rags. Too cute!! We have like 8 towels and like 20 wash rags. Do you think that's enough? I am also so confused as to where I'm going to store and organize all these things....

                  Martha - How did your shower go?

                      I love reading this thread. Reminds me of when I was pregnant.
                      I can't wait to have another one.
