My family is showing up this weekend so we're not doing anything xmasy until this weekend. We keep it small and simple though

Filling up my hours of boredom reading homebirth stories on the web. LOL

We had a great day! But I got really frustrated at the end. I'm so touched out. Payson is teething and just a mess. She's crawling around now happy which is so nice.

Hoping today is a good day. Have to give my kids disappointing news that family is not coming this weekend but we'll do something fun to "distract" them. I am filled with anticipation for my first appt on Monday.

I enjoy grocery shopping

Dh woke me up at 5:30.... we had an early day before he went to work. Had issues w/ the bank not depositing our money so we had to drive back home and get all that situated and then leave again.

Small nap this afternoon, always get headaches afterwards.

Getting light headed after standing up too fast.

Tired.... so dog tired.... Can't wait for bed tonight. Can't wait for Monday. DH doesn't feel like this pregnancy is real. I need that 1st appt so that it's real in his mind.

I think we agreed on a boys name.

i dont mind grocery shopping most days, but with all the boxing week sales everywhere it was crazy out there! oddly enough costcos wasnt too bad, so it ended up being better than i thought it would be

what name have you picked (if you share before hand) so exciting youve found one already!!My hubby is the same way, its not real for him until after appointments start

We've never gone shopping this early before so we were really surprised when we found a lot of meat on sale. I told DH we need to shop earlier so we get the good deals and he agrees

DH and I *never ever ever* agree on a boys name, but my intuition tells me this is a boy. So much that I waited in the parking lot 30 minutes before the store was even open to buy the test just so I could save a few bucks and not buy the expensive one, meditated and heard "boy" too!

Anyway, he said the name Lyren and I fell in love. We both like Oliver, so I'm thinking Lyren Oliver.

No, this is going to be a surprise!! I'm so freaking excited We found out with the girls, but not this time.

I told DH that having something "new" each time gives me encouragements in labor. With dd1, well she was my first kid so it was all new and exciting. With dd2 it was my first homebirth. With this one I don't want to know the gender so I have more encouragement to push baby out to meet him/her

i wish i was patient enough to be surprised! I love the idea of waiting until birth, but the actual waiting part is torture! maybe if we had a 4th id wait.... id seriously consider it atleast! Its a good way to think of it, as encouragement, it would sure make me want to meet that baby asap

do you have any girl names picked?

Can't agree on a girls name.

Our girls have 2 middle names and they're both R.L. initials

Kailey Rose Lieselotte
Nola Rain Lila

So finding a girl name to flow and fit with the initials is a pain so I'm going easy on girl names haha!

We had such a hard time with Payson's pregnancy agreeing on a boys name. We had an elective us to find out gender, I wasn't connecting her pregnancy was very unplanned. I needed to connect, they told us she was a boy. So we hashed out boys names forever! He wanted Cornelius. And he would not budge, I hated it! We finally agreed to Hudson. I was really upset at having a boy at first, so when we found out she was a girl I grieved the boy we were having. It was such a roller coaster ride.

I was upset at the big U/S. I thought we would just confirm. But I almost fell off the table.
