Ouch andrea that sounds bad. :( it might of been something that didn't agree with you or someone was sick and went out to dinner. Wish people just stayed home if they are that sick ya know? Hope you feel better.

I fly home bright and early tomorrow morning. I'm happy to be going home. Maybe I'll get more than 4 to 5 hours of sleep haha.

Thanks. I feel much better today, but still not 100%. Since I've done nothing but sit on the couch the last two days, I have finally been able to get baby boy's movements on video!! They aren't huge, but can definitely be seen. I can't wait until DH gets home so I can show him!

Becky, I hope you made it home safe and sound.

Glad you for home Becky and that you are feeling better Andrea. That's so cool that both of you can see the baby move from the outside....I'm not quite there yet, but it is nice to feel the little movements here and there- stupid anterior placenta. lol

The biopsy went well this morning. It honestly did not hurt one bit, which was a relief. The doctor scheduled me to see him on Monday evening where he said he'll look over my stitches and go over the results. Fingers crossed this will all be behind me come Monday night.

Babydust, I'm glad it wasn't painful! That's a plus. I'm anxious to find out the results!

You're telling me...I'm just thankful I have the gender reveal party on Saturday and going baby registry shopping with DH and our mothers on Sunday to keep me busy.

Yes, good healthy distractions Babydust!!

Becky, I'm glad you slept so soundly! You must have reallllly needed it.
My cold has changed a bit. Not achy and exhausted anymore, but my nose is pretty stuffed, and my throat is still sore.

So I'm really excited because I've already gotten 4 things purchased off my registry! I don't know if I already told you, but my mother in law got us our pack and play, and car seat/stroller/base set. Then my brother got us our swing and mobile! Ahhh I'm getting soooo excited!!!

That's awesome! So far all we have is the glider and pink little pool baby float a friend handed down to us.
Do you ladies know anything about your shower? Are you having one? Whose planning it? My mom and mother in law are "in charge" of mine, but DH was telling me that my mom wants to do the shower at our house, which is a ridiculous idea because my guest list is around 55-60 people and there is no way we'll fit everyone in my house. It's tough because neither one of our parents have tons of money, but my mom can be a little tight with the purse string so I think she figured having it at our house would be the cheapest idea. So on Sunday I'm planning on talking to both moms and letting them know that DH and I don't mind chipping in if money is an issue, but that I think we should do the shower either in a restaurant or a catering hall. I wish my mom would be a little more generous and just agree to do it at a place, but it is what it is.

Baby you can always do it at a park! Usually parks are big enough and it's outside so it won't be to loud. My mom wants to do mine but I already bought a few items hehe. I'll probably have mine at my house. My guest list won't be more than maybe 20 people. I invited like 60 people to my wedding and only like 10 showed up besides my family. That was an eye opener for me. So it will probably be the same with the baby shower lol.

That's awesome! I wish I could do a small shower, but DH comes from a big Italian family and its not a pretty situation if you leave someone out. Plus, I have a lot of girlfriends from home and college that invited me to their showers so I have to do the same. The only good thing about lots of people is more gifts....lol. That sounds horrible, but so true.

I think it's a good idea to offer some money if you think that would change their mind about the location of your shower. Although I would really hope they would get the idea, and tell you that's not necessary, and just cover the cost themselves.

My mom, mother in law (DH's step mom) , and sister in law are throwing mine. I'm pretty certain it will be in a restaurant, unless my mother in law, or sister in law offer to host it at their house. I know my mom never would. I have found it really odd that my actual mother in law, hasn't mentioned anything at all about the shower. Of course if she doesn't offer any help, no one would ask her for it. But I think she's going to feel like a huge jerk, and maybe a little left out when she realizes she never offered ANY help at all. But who knows, maybe it's not too late, maybe she will.

Becky, I think a park is a nice idea, however, I always worry about weather. It would be a huge bummer if it got rained out.

It's crazy that showers really need to start getting planned soon!! I feel like time is flying by lately!

Biopsy came back negative for cancer!!!! I have an inflammation of the breast and dilation of the blood vessels, they think it's harmless and just pregnancy related. Thanks for all the support! I feel beyond relieved!!

Woohoo!! I'm so glad to hear that!

How have you both been feeling otherwise? Getting big bellies!? I feel huge! Over the weekend, I met up with a bunch of girls I graduated high school with, who all have kids or are pregnant. It was so cool seeing everyone, and all of the babies!! There was one girl who is 2 weeks from her due date, and I swear, in one of the pictures we took, my belly looks as big as hers!

I've had what I think is an upper respiratory infection for a week now, and my cough is sooo bad at times. I think I finally need to go to the dr. But the problem is finding the time. Otherwise, nothing else to report. Just lots of kicking happening here, and I'm loving it!!

I hope you're both doing well!
