    I have an ultrasound coming up on May 24, I'm excited but not sure if we should find out the gender or not!! I guess we'd better decide!! LOL. I have pretty much decided that this baby is a girl, I believe this so much in fact that I've pretty much stopped thinking about our boy name entirely and will probably fall over if this baby is born with a penis, lol.
    Not that I would mind, of course, but I really feel that it's a girl this time.

    All my cravings have moved into the fruit, vegetable and tuna fish sandwich category, morning sickness is pretty much gone (knock on wood).

    At my last midwife appointment there was some protein found in my urine (+1 on the strip) and my blood pressure is low (110/48 or something) so we're keeping an eye on that. I'm also going to have my iron levels and such checked out soon.

    So I think we're doing pretty good over here aside from the desperate “need“ for tuna I'm feeling right now hahaha

    The lovely thing about your MW, they will have the information from the radiologist (including the gender), but will hold off on sharing it until you are ready. And you can ask at any time. No need to rush into a decision.

    Cookies aren't given out any more. They haven't been for over a year. Sorry about your luck!

    Finally got a reading for the heart rate - if the old wivestales are true I should be having a girl at 149 BPM. Although.... I am not convinced at this point. The ultrasound is around the corner so time will tell! This little one is starting to get pretty active though!

    Both my boys were 144-153bpm.
    This one is 153bpm, so if this baby were to follow the pattern then I suppose it would be a boy too! I'm feeling fairly confident it's a girl though.
    Wouldn't it be funny if we all had girls??

    Just saw my MW today- actually official due date is Nov. 4 (I am 15 weeks along) but I tend to go early (so far 10 days early, 1 day early, and 1 week early)... so ya never know. I don't know about this HR thing, today my babes was 150 but I remember my other boys being around that too Hope you are all feeling well!
    I have 4 boys ages 7, 5, and 3 and newborn

    Holy jeeperz, I had forgotten about how limited my mobility gets when I'm pregnant.

    Took DS and the pup for a walk today down to the park, it's about 30 minutes to walk there, but me and the dog are a bit slow so took us about an hour. Once we arrived DS went off and played and the dog and I sat in the shaded grass. After a bit we headed home.

    Once we got in the door I ended up cleaning the livingroom a bit. Now I am so unbelievably sore. My hips, thighs, bum, and back feel so stiff.... Ugh, I'm thinking a bath is in order once my munchkin's in bed.

    We've hit the halfway mark with 2.0! Though I still don't know how long I'll end up carrying her...we may deliver closer to the end of October LOL.

    HOLY COW! Half way point here!
    I cannot believe how quickly this pregnancy seems to be going by. I remember feeling like I was pregnant forever with DS, but these last 2 pregnancies have been so fast it's nuts.
