OMG I'm glad we got the groups together.. fun having girls further along and just starting out!! Gives us a broader range of subjects and support...
I suck at personals...... I usually quote each person and respond individually...
Amanda - you look great, and yay for the awesome doctor's appointment. I think it's cute that the baby was being shy... gives you yet another great surprise to look forward to.
SD welcome, welcome, welcome!!! Love that you're due at Halloween!! Always wanted to paint my belly... we're going to Mexico next month and I might let the girls paint me for a day on the beach. LOL
Lou - we did not do the amino. We decided we would terminate at 16 weeks if it turned out the baby had something terribly wrong.... something that would be a life of pain and suffering. However, a Down's baby would still be a gift and we would welcome it with an open heart. With all we went through I was not prepared to take the chance of something going wrong and losing a normal, healthy baby. Not everyone's choice.. but I don't have another three years and $40K to do this again... the cards were in our favour for a healthy baby.
Mellow - Wow!! Two girls!! LOL oh wow you have some awesome memories ahead of you! Congrats!!!
Gina - Gorgeous belly full of gorgeous baby!!
Rio - yep, I'll put the intros on soon. Thanks for the kind words!!
I'm sure they would have called you if something was wrong. Good luck with your level II! Oh and thanks for the great EDD list - BTW I'm having a boy!!
AFM: Baby had a quiet day without a ton of kicking. It made me a little nervous but a quick doppler check proved he was just fine. Ugh. I think it's because I wore super comfy clothes today and didn't have the pressure on my tummy that makes either him kick more or I feel it when he does. LOL
