So cute! :) I think I'm just going to try to hold it in now until we know the gender. It kind of sucks but we won't be seeing anyone till then. I guess it all depends on how quick I show with this one. I showed pretty quick with ds...

That is the best reaction I've ever heard :) Since you don't have it on camera, write this in the new baby's book --- this is a memory you'll definitely want to keep :)

I'm still breastfeeding my nearly 18 month old so I probably will breastfeed this one as well unless something happens and I can't. I breastfed my oldest for a much shorter time but I did try so that made me happy. I feel like my 2 bio kids are healthier because I did.

I breastfed my first until she was 3.5yrs old. She asks me now if the newb will drink my boobies too, I told her yes they will, and she asked if I could give her some in a cup. I told her sure, if you really want it.

Not gross or weird, just not my style. Sometimes I'm a bit too heavy-handed on the sarcasm.. lol

Went in for my first appt today..measuring right on Target Aug 13th..well the u/s said Aug 10th but my first baby was 8lbs 9oz so I figure I am good to go. For some reason I was freaking out that they would do the exam and there wouldn't be a heart beat..but all is well and it has little arms and legs. I love that my dr does a U/S with each exam so its fun to watch them get bigger.

I am looking forward to breastfeeding again. I BFed my daughter for 2 years. I think she has such a great immune system because of it. I hope it goes as smoothly with the second.




How much maternity leave are you working moms going to take? I'll lose my health insurance beyond 8 weeks which we can't afford. I'm worried about going back to teaching full-time so quickly. (I had almost 4 months because my DD was born in May.) I hope it doesn't interfere with breastfeeding. Pumping sucks.

I'm allowed to take the usual 12wks, but I will only be paid for the amount of sick, vacation or comp time I've accrued. Between my loss in Sept, visiting back home in dec (which was planned before we got PG), and this week of issues... I think I've zeroed out that balance :(



So, by the time the baby's born, I'll probably have about 2wks paid (if I'm lucky & don't need to take any more time off). Which means, 10wks unpaid. Or else I go back to work after 2wks. Hubby & I discussed it & he wants me to take the whole 12wks and that we'll make it work (even though it will be a $4k loss to our income). We're going to save everything we can between now & then and just be cautious w/our money. I love him lol

I take 6 weeks and pumped twice at work while I was breast feeding. I didn't notice a huge decrease until we starting putting her on solids and she wasn't needing as much from me. I only last 1 year..my right side was pretty much a goner by a year and I was ready to not hassel with it.
