We're thinking maybe Stella but I'm not sold yet.
Aw, I like the name Della

I'm so crazy hormonal lately, luckily not mean. Just very emotional, everything makes me bawl my eyes out. My oldest had her kindergarten recital, and when she came out and started dancing, I completely lost it. A big giant mess in a crowd full of people, my husband is like, "why are you crying?" Everyone else was cheering, hah. I said, "i thik it's because I'm pregnant, hahaha."

We have our nxt ultrasound on the 23rd, (this would be the big gender unveiling, but I already had that early.) I wonder if I'll cry at that too?
Yeah, I've been more emotional too, but usually just a bit more crabby. And not wanting my daughter to crawl all over me, poor girl.

Yesterday I felt baby kick from the outside for the first time! I was lounging on the couch when I got a really hard kick, and I SAW my belly jump, so I put my hand there and got a hard bump a few seconds later! Baby kept right on kicking, so my mom (who is visiting from AZ) and my oldest daughter got to feel baby too! I started getting all teary... there's really a baby in there!
Yay for strong baby kicks, I can't wait!!!!!

Can you guess why it took us so long to name DS? every time we'd talk names DH would suggest ridiculous ones! and he is totally kidding before you think I'm hurting his feelings lol
Oh my, yeah, that's really helpful name suggesting LOL. I have stopped looking at names for now. I have so much else to do and I just figure if we find out gender first I'll have half the work to do!

I was so happy to find out yesterday that I can eat salad again!!! I am a big salad eater, but early on it started making me nauseous and gaggy. So yesterday I had two big salads. So glad to have that way of getting lots of veggies again!

I have been craving salad a lot lately! I even eat it for afternoon snacks LOL.

I'm starting to get leg cramps at night. I've had this before in pregnancy, but usually closer to the end. I'm taking a prenatal vitamin, but time to up my potassium I guess.

I have an anterior placenta this pregnancy and the us tech said its middle to high in my uterus. Its so frustrating to not feel movement as frequently as I'd like. When she is feet down, I can feel the kicks, but then she will reverse and I wont feel her for a day or 2. Not good for the mama nerves.

It never gets old feeling those kicks, no matter how many you have! I am 19 weeks and DH felt the baby on the outside yesterday. Its so awesome. I have my scan the 27th on my 30th birthday! So pumped about it. If we have a boy I am pretty sure he will be named Davis. I don't have a middle name. My other boys are Miller and Grant. I obviously have a thing for last names as first names Miller is my maiden name. DD is Evie June. I don't know for a girl. I like Mercy Claire, or Nora Claire. We will see in a few days!!!!!

That stinks! Hopefully as your uterus moves up you'll be able to feel her kicks more.
I'm pretty sure my placenta is near the top and a little in front too, because as hard as this baby has been kicking I've almost always felt it near or under my pubic bone-- and my uterus has been at my belly button for 2 weeks now. When I finally got to feel the kicks from the outside baby happened to be sideways so the kicks were the highest I've felt them-- about halfway between my pubic bone and my belly button. I guess I'll see if I guessed right about the placenta on Wed.

It doesn't! This is my fourth too, and everything about it is as intense as my first. I worried just as much in my first trimester, get just as excited feeling the kicks... and I'm probably even more excited to meet this little person, because already having three I know how amazing motherhood is! I love your kids names, so beautiful and classic.

Re: Weekly Chat 4/16-4/22

I have to wait two more weeks for an ultrasound appt. I would be okay with team green, but I'm leaning toward finding out just because we have so much rearranging to do. During my appt last week, baby was so active that dr. had a hard time getting a hb, but it was nice and strong. I feel flutters every once-in-awhile, but not a lot just yet.

Still adjusting to this pregnancy. Not totally excited, but not as bummed out either. I feel guilty for not being totally ecstatic, but I'll get there. I have a lot of supportive friends and family who are with me where I am now. I feel very fortunate for that.

Don't mean to bring anyone else's joy down. Hope everyone is doing well.

That's so exciting that some of you are feeling kicks on the outside already!! Vinny is starting to kick all throughout the day now, but notstrong enough to feel it from the outside yet. It's still pretty faint just for me to feel it.

Re: Weekly Chat 4/16-4/22

Yay, another week has gone by, I'll be 18 weeks tomorrow. Two more weeks until we find out gender (pleas cooperate, baby!). I had a good birthday this week, DH took me out for both lunch and dinner (he didn't want me to cook on my birthday and didn't feel like cooking himself). I also discovered I can eat hummus again. Yay! My DD was sure glad I made hummus again, she's been snacking on it for two days now. Good to have another source of protein.
These mood swings are cazy, I'll feel awesome one minute and half an hour later I'm crabby at the world! DD can really sense my moods, too, I try to reassure her that I'm not actually crabby at her, but to please not invade my space anyway LOL

Re: Weekly Chat 4/16-4/22

I have started to feel tiny flutters, but that's all. It bugs me that I have almost no other symptoms, so I've been using the doppler no less than 3 times a day. As for names, if it's a girl I have no idea what her name will be. I like Jackson for a boy, and it was on parenting's 10 most hated list today, with no explanation why... I don't think it's over used, and we won't be spelling it funny.
