Thank you
Our miscarriages made things worrisome enough, but then losing Elli has just added a whole other (and bigger) fear/worry on top of that. This is definitely going to be our last pregnancy, we just can't go through this again. I don't know for sure it will be the last baby, but last pregnancy.

I won't have my u/s for another couple weeks, at least. I'm they'll get me by 24 weeks, but I expect they'll figure out a way to get me in for 20-21 weeks. I'm only anxious right now when I really think about it, and remember what we've seen on that screen before. So for now I just try not to focus on it!

It's a vicious cycle.
My hair is very thick and heavy - when it gets to a certain length it gets too heavy for my head/neck and I end up having constant migraines from it Otherwise, I love having long hair!

We're terrible for decorating. The kids all just have whatever room they had when we moved in here (6 years ago!).
Our babies sleep in our room for a good while (Levi is still in there now, although that's because we have no more bdrs at the moment), so we don't ever decorate for baby - poor things, lol.

Ooo, good suggestion! We had a border in DD's room in our apartment that was sticker, like that. It was perfect - got to decorate and change the room without ever painting or doing anything permanent (which we wouldn't have been allowed).

AFM: Another Dr appt this morning, then bloodwork, and I'm planning to get the kids from their swim lessons (our school buses them to town every Friday afternoon for swimming as part of our phys ed component). DH is going to come into town after work and we'll go to his parents house for supper and a visit It'll be a long, busy day, but that's okay!
