    I think we're more like 4-5 months apart...real months, not every 4 weeks. They've been dying to tell us for over a week, but have only seen DH and didn't want to tell him without me. :love: So she was telling me that she was dying to call and ask about how weird her b*oobs are feeling! lol I cannot describe how crazy excited I am...It's actually making me more excited about Lily--I'm still freaked out more than anything though.

    DH has become really good friends with a fellow teacher he works with and he and his wife and 2 little ones moved VERY close to us and she's pregnant too! It's like all of a sudden were in the parent club.:thumbsup2

    Oooh! I saw that fan at Lowe's yesterday and was gushing about how perfect it would be! lol A new one for the living room has to come first though, since it brokedown at the end of summer last year...

    Thats 23 items for $24! Thats roughly $1 an item, not even thinking of tax. And you got the gift set too!

    Just think... if you do get all that stuff at your shower, you can return it. Target will let you do 2 targets under 1 ID (DL) without receipt.. and i think something like up to $30 worth... so you definitely have room to make a return! If youve already done all your returns, use DH's drivers liscense.

    You did well! Glad you could rack up on a few things. Hey, and even if you score too much of that stuff-- theres always upcoming baby showers! At that price, throw together a bathroom basket type thing and you've just made a cheap gift!

    Awesome maternity sale at Sears!!

    All of their clearance clothes are 50% more off the already discounted price. I got like 4 sweaters for $3.99 each and some short sleeve shirts for $2.99 each. They had some other stuff too. My store didn't have a sign or anything. Another shopper told me after I helped her pick some stuff out. I double checked with a price scanner and it was true!

    So for anyone newly preggers or anyone who works in frigid AC like I do, you might want to take a look. Of course this may vary from store to store, but it's worth a look.

    Nah. basically the one same shirt in a few different colors...It's some kind of blend that is more dressy than a basic t-shirt. It's also thinner and softer...None of the colors were exciting, but for $2.99 I can't complain...there were also some dressy shirts with short sleeves, but they had rhinestones and other things I wouldn't buy. The sweaters were mainly light-weight and with 3/4 length sleeves. They also had a lot of lounge-y type pants and hoodies.

    The entire store was on sale BTW, so you could definitely find some steals in the reg sections too and baby clothes of course. :teeth:

    There's a bunch of stuff on the website too, including shorts and capris for $3.99-$9.99!

    How exciting! That's really great news! I know you were having some worries because they were having trouble conceiving so it's wonderful that you can both have kids and not too far apart in age either :goodvibes

    I know how that feels. I am the first one out of my group of friends to have a baby so none of them can really relate. We're all college aged too and a lot of them are still into partying and going out which obviously I can't do anymore ;) That's not to say they're not supportive because they are all really great and can't wait to be honorary aunts and uncles but I definitely can't talk to them about pregnancy stuff like I can with you guys. That's why it's so nice to come here and have ladies to talk to who can relate to everything that's going on right now :goodvibes

    Woohoo, I actually didn't get a ton of that stuff!

    I got 1 Huggies Gift Basket, 1 of the same gift sets I bought at Target and my mom got me baby powder, creamy baby oil and baby lotion (none of which did I get!) Not too shabby at all!

    Someone however got me a pack of solid white newborn (as in 5lb-8lb) onsies... I'm thinking those might sit in a closet and wait on another baby because there is no way Lucas will ever need those. :rotfl:

    Thanks so much for the heads up on that deal. It just worked perfectly, since we don't have a Target here, and we were headed to Pittsburgh Friday. I won't have to buy that stuff for awhile! :thumbsup2

    Totally agree with every word. My best friend basically stopped coming around when I got married because she got tired of me saying "I just have to check with Tom first..." or "I need to see what Tom is up to first.."
    She was there today though and it was great to hang out with her some more. She went through a rebellious stage (drinking, partying, going out clubbing, etc.) after we drifted apart and she seems to be coming back to her normal self. We're totally going to go see the Hannah Montana Movie together here at 9:30! :rotfl:
    It's totally great to come on here and chat and talk and feel like someone else out there is in my shoes, too! :hug:


    ...I also POPPED!!!!!!!!!!! What a great day this is. Baby shower, popped belly and DH's MARINE CORPS CONTRACT IS UP TODAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :banana::banana::banana::banana:

    Congrats Patsy-I know you were holding your breath over the Marine contract!

    dd9 is mad at me right now. We were supposed to go see the HM movie yesterday. Too bad my hospital stay got in the way-how selfish of me!:confused3

    Wow, what a great day! The room and you look so cute.

    I am exhausted today, I think it is this gloomy rainy weather.

    Happy Easter to you all before I forget.

    Totally. It hit me in the middle of the shower (while I was eating cake, screw you ticker ;)) and I jumped up and everyone looked at me and I was like "HE'S OUT!" ...

    Geesh.. Hannah Montana will be there later. Too bad it's not on right now or I'd tell her it's a concession. Hope you feel better soon. :hug:


    Thanks.
    It's sunny here.. stinks that you got gloomy rain. :headache: Wind is chilly, though.

    Happy Easter back!

    My entire family is meeting at a restaurant tomorrow. Not sure how "Easter" that will be.. :confused3 We'll see.

    Yeah...we wanted that fan forever... his grandmother sent us $100 so we're like "We're goin to get the fan"... The whole time we looked at it, it was $76. The day we finally got it, it went to $89. Our luck.... but I love it!!!


    Patsy! Great pic!!

    We took Ella and her brother to see the Easter Bunny today. Stood in line for nearly 2 hrs, and my back is killing me!! Although Ella cried, her brother looked awfully cute :)

    Yeah I have been through a similar situation. My best friend actually lives in Virginia but a lot of my close friends here have kinda drifted away. I think they expect me to just all of a sudden go back to my partying ways once I have the baby and I'm all "uhhh, no, doesn't work that way guys." It's hard for them to relate to well...parenthood. I am so glad I met ya'll :hug:


    Aw, Patsy you are flippin ADORABLE :goodvibes And the room looks great! I bet you and DH are relieved to have his contract up. I have nothing but respect for the men and women in uniform but it can be a really tough life, especially with everything going on in the world right now.


    ETA: I REALLY REALLY wanna see the HM movie. I am going to force my sister into going with me! lol

    Nope, not out of the norm at all. New moms need help and understanding. Besides having a tiny totally depedant human being to care for, your body needs to physically recover from having and carrying that baby. Plus you have 3 other kids to take care of (including another 13 month old baby!)

    Sitting down with him and letting him know exactly what you need and want help with might help. Boys (and men are just older boys) can be totally clueless. What seems obvious to most women is often totally not even seen by most men. For example, I bet it never occurred to him that dishes and laundry are going to further hurt your already hurting back.

    Tracy, I don't have anything to contribute but a :hug:. I hope things get better for you soon.



    ....on a side note, is anyone or has anyone used a sleep positioner? Have one to suggest?
    Thermometers?

    :grouphug: Hang in there, you are not weak and I don't think you are out of the norm. To say you have a lot on your plate right now is an understatement. I would try to sit down with your boyfriend and tell him in a non "you are doing a crappy job helping me" sort of way. Maybe find a handful things can do to help. He might be clueless and think you are SUPER MOM and can handle it all by yourself. Sometimes it helps to say, could you please help me with....A, B and C. Then he knows what you need. Good Luck!!!

    Happy Easter everyone!!!

    This is off topic but I got tagged!!!! Yippie skippy!!! :cool1::cool1::cool1:


    Piecy, I haven't found a single thermometer that I liked. From what I hear you can't win because if you get the kind that you put on the forehead to read it, if it isn't in the exact right spot it doesn't read accurate and that their ears are too small for the ear kind to get an accurate reading. I really don't want to stick one in his bum :scared1: I think I'll go with the ear kind.
