    I'm finally starting to feel the baby which is both cool and weird all at the same time, she's more active when I am sitting up at work instead of lying down. Some other ladies who are as far along as more »

    I told him no, sorry-can't go this year. My sister also agreed that I am not crazy and first babies are often late so there's a good chance I'll be in the hospital that weekend or just getting out of more »

    Oh WPP-thinking of you! I hope this doesn't last too long and you have your baby girl soon! And I'm assuming you mean me, IPW-thank you! I figured I wasn't being totally nuts here but I just need conf more »

    Am I being weird that I'm not really crazy about the idea of DH going away for a whole day to go to a video/board game convention a week after my due date? I mean, yes I have family around (by that I more »

    Since I don't know many people around me who put there kids in daycare, I asked a friend who has worked at a bunch of centers in the area just to get started somewhere. I know we have to go check them more »

    Thanks Med. We made up our minds last night and we have to do what's best in the end, think with our heads and not our hearts. The only good thing I can is that according to my insurance policy, this more »

    Hey Med-I'm not up to talking about it much right now but no, things aren't good. The test didn't come back in our favor. Lots to decide at this point. "I'm always thinking one step ahead. Like a carp more »
