Name- Jenifer

Where are you from- The lovely city of Detroit...hahahaha

Kids ages and names- The names I try not to post much because they are pretty unique and will come up in a google search. My dh has a baby mama that I care to keep out of my business. However, they are boys-18, 16, 14, 11, 5, 4 and 1. Girls-10, 7, 3 (in 3 weeks) and one on the way.

Whats been up- not much, just getting through two funerals (dh dad and aunt) and my grandma fell and broke her hip.

What are you looking forward to- Warm weather, oldest son's prom and graduation. Youngest dd's birthday.

EDD-July 30

Team pink

Name- Evaani Josephine

Hospital birth IF I make it there. I was planning a homebirth but over $1000 in van repairs, and a $1000 water bill said NO way!

I feel good, no issues. I would post a belly pic but the last one is about 4-5 weeks old and Em looks so darn cute, me not so much.

Yes actually.. But not buttoned.. I wear them a bit low with a belt to keep them up and a hair tie around the button to keep it flat.. I just haaaaate maternity pants and tend to prefer just a bigger size jeans.. But hopefully it will be getting warm here soon! And I can switch to skirts and dresses ...
