I've noticed that there are quite a few threads in here that aren't the most positive. Probably because we're all feeling large, uncomfortable and sweaty! So I think we should all post things that we love about ourselves. Not just about being pregnant either. Let's dig deep and spread some positivity!

Anyone want to share some self love?

I actually got some stuff done today! I am a major procrastinator and its been something I have been working on for a while. Today I made a stuffed animal "chain" using twine and clothes pins so now all the kids stuffed animals are up and off the ground! I CAN be crafty sometimes so it was a nice boost to my day when I could show DH that accomplishment.
I also love how after DH and I have a disagreement we can still laugh, cuddle and even DTD afterwards Its nice to have learned from my parents (and he from his) about how we DON'T want to handle things. We literally discussed an issue for an hour and ended up very passionately making up afterwards! I am very proud that I have become a person who can apologize, admit when they are wrong and not resent the other person for being right. I was SO not that way as a teenager-DH and I like to say we trained each other to be better people since we have been together since I was 17 and he was a little over 18.
Today I also took all 4 of my kids to a local store all by myself and everyone did great. It was not stressful, they all behaved great and we didn't have any break downs over not being able to have something and my 5 and 4 yo's did not wander off. (THe other two were in the cart)
That is all I can think of right now since its stuff that has happened in the last couple days!
Good thread idea!

Baby has been moving like crazy today. We got a new camper last night because of the new addition to our family we outgrew our old one. My kiddos are super excited. I also found a really cute diaper bag that I love and a blanket and coming home outfit for our little guy. It's been a good week!

I am ECSTATIC to be moving and finally in a stable position to buy a house! We were supposed to buy a house a few months back but DH's job was talking lay-offs so he just got a new one!! We have to relocate but it's worth it.

Happy Birthday Manda!!

See, we just got to dig deep!

I for one am completely impressed with myself today. I have cleaned my entire house from top to bottom. I mean windows, floors, cupboards, you name it. And I haven't passed out yet!

I also had an amazing OB appt on Thursday. I still haven't gained a pound! I actually went back down the four pounds I had though I gained. Baby is healthy so my OB isn't concerned at all. Being below my pre-pregnancy weight makes me feel amazing to be honest. Everyone though I would blow up really bad and I have proved them wrong!

I love this thread idea!

Some non-pregnancy related positives: I like to think I have a good sense of humor. I am a good cook. I am a loving person to my family and friends.

Not really anything to do with me, really, but something that made me smile today: I was pushing my littlest two stepkids on the swingset. My 6 yo dsd was on a two person swing and my 4 yo dss tried to join her, but he didn't know how to help push so she quickly asked him to get off because he was too heavy. She then looked at me and smiled and said, "When Evelyn is here, she could swing with me on here". She was also asking me when Evelyn will be born, and I told her it would probably be either late August or early September depending on when she decided to show up. Dsd has late September birthday, so I wasn't sure how she'd feel about a new baby potentially encroaching on her birthday month, but she said, "I really hope that she comes in September!"

It just makes me really happy to hear my stepchildren express excitement about the baby. It's so tough to introduce a new family member, especially in blended family situations. I'm happy and hopeful that integrating all of the kids may go more smoothly than expected.

*Excitedly expecting baby girl number two!*

Thank you to Babydoll213 for my fabulous siggie!

That's so cute! I'm glad your step-kids are getting excited! That really is some feel good stuff!

You reminded me, I didn't post non-pregnancy related things!

Hmm, well I always seem to have people laughing, even when it's not my intention. I naturally demand the attention of a crowd or group of people. I'm also the person my friends and family come to for advice and I love being able to help and support them.
