Mommies to be check in

Lizz, I still can't believe your DH knows the sex and you don't Wow... talk about willpower! Good idea leaving him home while you register. Do you think he can keep it a secret for the next 4 1/2 months?
Karma- have they told you that you have to stay in the hospital for 48 hours? Were you untreated with your 1st baby, or didn't have adequate treatment, or was your baby symptomatic? At both hospitals I've worked at we only keep moms & babies for that long if they didn't have adequate treatment or if the babies had fevers, etc... Interesting. Just make sure you get to the hospital in plenty of time to get 2 doses of antibiotics in before the delivery- generally if you're treated you're good to go.
Lisa, so glad you're feeling good! I hope I'm still feeling that good at your gestation

I can't wait to get rid of this OB...even though he has been my OB/GYN for 17 years! I don't want him delivering Noah either...isn't that sad? I know he doesn't deliver on Mondays. Maybe I can bribe Noah to make an appearance on a Monday

I mentioned it to a few of the girls, but didn't post it here...yes, Mike knows the sex and I don't! He really wanted to find out, but finally agreed to not ask at the ultrasound. I told the tech that we didn't want to know. Well, of course, she slipped in the middle of the u/s and Mike heard but I didn't. He is really good and won't slip up (if it were reverse, the whole world would know!). But of course he's torturing me with it. Oh well! I really have no urge to find out.
I'm so excited because I just ordered the crib and dresser today. I ended up getting the DaVinci Emily. I can't wait to get it! I also ordered a Moby Wrap today. Last weekend I got a BOB jogging stroller off of Craig's List (originally $299; got it for $75 barely used). I need to stop buying stuff, but keep finding such great deals!

Chances are, if you were negative on your first test, you're still going to be negative- that doesn't change very often. But for your own peace of mind that's the route I'd go- demand to have the OB retest you in the office this week.

My sister wanted to get one of those jogging strollers but her ex-husband's name is Bob and she didn't think she could deal with his name on the baby's stroller, LOL! Haha...that's too funny!

We went to the fair last night and had a really good time. I was able to walk to whole time w/o any issues. Apparently, Luke HATES fair food!! He was pissed when we got home. My stomach was cramping so bad. I kept burping acidy stuff and threw up a tiny bit of the acid stuff.....tried to make myself throw up more but i couldn't. i layed on the couch all night and cried and could not go to sleep. I think I got like 2 hours of sleep....maybe! I swear it was the worse night ever. And to top it off, as I was going into the living room the stupid dog was laying in the f'in walk way and i tripped over him. I didn't fall but it scared the crap out of me. Stupid f'in DOG!!!!!!!! Stupid fair food!!!!!!!!!!

As for the cramps, they could have been contractions or your body reacting to all the walking. I had horrible cramps the other night too, I'm pretty sure they were contractions. Maybe our bodies are actually making some progress!
I hope you get some rest tonight.
