My due date is 12/13/15, so I am currently 10 weeks,1 day. The babies will be 18 months apart. We are planning to find out the sex at the anatomy ultrasound, which I guess will be in July. We have a girls name picked out, but are undecided on a boys name. We are hoping for a girl after having 3 boys (I have 2 stepsons)!
Ive been a little worried since my confirmation ultrasound a few weeks ago. There was some sort of extra fluid, but the midwife wasn't worried, but I still am. We will go for another ultrasound after my next appt 6/2.
Overall I feel pretty good. Week 9 was the worst yet, but im back to feeling good. Lots of food aversions and super bloated.
We are currently working on logistics. Do we move DS into another room and keep the nursery for the new baby, or make a new nursery? It gets complicated because of our 2 older boys. I think, tentatively, we are moving the big boys into the basement bedroom with bunk beds, moving DS3 into the current big boys fireman room and then changing the nursery to be girly if needed. My ILs like to come stay often so then if they do, everyone will get shifted around. We really need a 5 bedroom house, but in our area thats $$$$.
I am so excited for both of you ladies that just found out! How are you guys feeling? @liv how are you feeling??
the nursery situation definitely would be stressful, Lola! We have a teeny 2 bedroom so it's fairly straightforward for us (they'll be sharing once little baby moves out of our room) but with 4 to juggle that would be tricky!
I hope the fluid thing continues to resolve itself. I can imagine that would be a little tough to not worry about! Glad you're feeling better. It's tough to feel "blah" with our J14 babies running around these days.
I just hit the third tri today, so it's getting pretty real that life is going to get a whole lot more crazy very soon! We have also pretty seriously considered that we could be 2 and done, for many reasons. DH and I are totally on the same page about that, even though before we got married we both imagined having 4+ kids. It's bittersweet to think that I'll be done childbearing before I'm 25, but I'm just enjoying the little moments and memories in this pregnancy, in case he is our last baby.
He's moving a lot now, starting to get to the point of obnoxious when I feel a THUD THUD against my pelvic floor and ribs, like he's stretching out. Mentally, I am picturing Junie's birth and integration into our family when I think of his arrival. It's so hard to imagine that this will be a totally new person, not just another Juniper! I feel a little intimidated having a boy, like will it feel different? Will I bond with him and know how to deal with boy-related issues that come up? Typical expecting mom fears, I guess.
Lola, keep us updated on your next ultrasound regarding the fluid levels. I'm sure it's hard to not be worried, but if your midwife wasn't concerned that's a good sign. Glad you're starting to feel better too. Liv, I can't believe you're in your 3'rd trimester already! I can tell you that having a little boy is awesome, he's so different from my older daughter, and he's just so much fun!
I'm pretty much still in shock and disbelief. I keep thinking that the test was wrong. I'm not feeling pregnant at all, and I know it's early but I guess that has me a little worried. My unofficial due date is Jan 17, so DS and this baby would be about 18 months apart. Thinking about the logistics of everything has been interesting-think we will keep DS in his nursery and use our guest room for the new baby. Have you all looked at double strollers, etc yet?

+ 1 for shock and disbelief. Also target was a bust on finding a "big sister" shirt WTF. I guess we'll just go the traditional here is my pee stick route.
I'm pretty apprehensive about the timing of new baby's due date. January kinda sucks in terms of me being able to take off the most possible time from work, I was hoping for April or May and then being able to take off the rest of the school year. But I do feel very blessed to be pregnant again and know that I will make it work with whatever time I can get off from work.
DD will be a little over 18 months old which I love because they'll be close in age. I secretly hope we have another little girl so they will be close in age but always pictured myself with boys so win win!
Also, is this really happening? I swear both tests I took have to be wrong? So crazy and exciting!
surfmama106 I only took one test and was in disbelief until thr ultrasound confirmed it. I sort of thought I'd get to the OB and her tell me I wasn't pregnant. It's so crazy!! I can't wait to hear what your hub says.
In some ways I'm sad that June will have to be the "big kid" in the house at 12 months, but it's going to be a sweet time for everyone to just be young and together for a couple years. They'll always be close in age so in some ways we'll be able to enjoy the baby/toddler age more fully. At least that's what I'm telling myself.
I decided I'm not taking any chances and getting back on BC until after our (2 years later) honeymoon in Sept. Bring on the all inclusive resort!!!
That's funny, we think alike. Friends of ours had a destination wedding so Mike and I decided to put off trying for a baby until after their wedding, because booze and fun. We were pregnant within 2 weeks of coming back home

Yea I'm a little nervous I haven't been feeling differently but it's still super early and I still don't have my period so there's that. I literally keep forgetting that I'm pregnant. Also I have a feeling that it's going to fly by! Summer, holidays, baby! Ahh!
Liv, is this pregnancy going faster than the first? I can't believe you're already in third tri.
I know! You and me both. I think I would say yes overall. Some days feel endlessly long, since I'm chasing Junie around and have a much more demanding PT/from home job, but the months seem to be going by quickly!
