I figured I'd gain a lot more with this pregnancy since I hit my delivery weight 3.5 months ago. I haven't tried to not gain or lose anything but I started back to work in August so that probably helps me out!



You'll be fine!! 30 is perfect!!

I wasn't super tiny at all. In fact, I started at the same weight I did with my son.



I'm 5'1" and generally stay around 153lbs. Hoping that with the help of breastfeeding I can stay more around 135/140...and lower if I add exercise to it.

Quoting Freckleface Watermelon:" We got T the ixl last year and thought it was a great transition for the DS! I think he's ready for ... [snip!] ... thing for his big bro bag but idk what it'll be! I think I might give him an outfit (boring, I know) but it's angry birds! lol"


LOL Landon loves Angry Bird, too! He'd be pumped if it were like an Angry Birds shirt. Now.... something cute & striped, forget it lol



Yeah I'm wanting to get Landon a new game system but that's why we decided we'll just keep the iXL & get him Skylanders for the Xbox. We also have a handheld PS something that Landon plays on.



We found these little random Zombie characters in a 3pk for like $3.49 at Target the other day. NO idea what they are but he loves them. So I was thinking of getting those with maybe one of those $15 Lego boxes and an outfit.... or something? I'm not sure. I was kind of wanting to write him a letter or get something "brother" oriented but not sure if that'd be cheesy or how it'd work out in the hospital lol

That's not too terribly expensive! I love it!! I bet Landon would like something like this. So it has room underneath for storage & stuff right? Plus the cool slide!

HAHAH trust me, we normally *DO NOT* know what sex is in this house. I can count on both hands the amount of times we've "done it" this pregnancy lol but I was like "Oh hell, let's just have sex to get things rolling".... and it some what worked lol

We weren't going to buy him skylanders but after my husband played it yesterday he thinks he wants to. My bil has 18 of those stinkin' add on toys so I told him I think we should buy him a couple and then "rent" some 2 at a time from my bil. He wouldn't even notice they were missing....He's spoiled.




And I was going to be cheesy and do big bro stuff.....but I decided I wanted it to be all about him, by himself. Not tied to baby. So he can have his own fun and surprise. I won't give it to him right away either. I don't want anything to take away from the moment of him meeting his brother and us having some family time. Can't wait!!

I've gained 40 which isn't bad for me. I gained 80 last time. I'm happy because I know I'm not going to even come close to what I gained last time.

Yep. It's a loft instead of a bunk bed. We would be able to get the rest of his toys out of the living room to make room for the baby swing and other baby things that we'll want in there. Also, Gage always wants a tent in his room so it would be like he had one all the time with the curtain. He could even put a sleeping bag on the floor and sleep in there if he wanted. Plus the cool slide. He would love that! My in-laws are sending us $100 on Monday to put toward it for Christmas. I think we can manage to come up with the rest. Then we'll have the toddler bed for Riley when he's big enough and Gage won't have to feel like he's giving up his bed for his brother.
