Rings on or off?
Belly button in or out?

What are you researching?

So I’ll go first!
How far along are you? 25 Weeks, 3 days
Baby Name if you are sharing? Lena Renee 🙂
Symptoms? I’ve been having some pain in my groin lately. Feeling lots of kicks! I think the belly has popped- people have started asking me if I want a seat on the train.
If you are having a shower, when is it? My shower is April 22
Where are you registered? Amazon.com
Nursery Theme? No real theme- our “nursery” is more of a baby corner, and the colors match the decor of our living room- yellow and green.
Weight gain? 25 pounds… Oy.
Stretch marks? None yet. I have been diligent with the Palmers “Tummy Butter”. My sister has Terrible stretch marks, but she didn’t do any sort of extra lotioning during her pregnancy. I hope this helps!
Rings on or off? Still on, but getting tighter and tighter. It’s really hard to put them on first thing in the morning….
Belly button in or out? I’d say it’s neutral- not “in” but not “out” yet either. Sort of… flat!
Sweetest thing Darling Husband has done for you while pregnant? I told Darling Husband that one of my apps said that by now you should be able to hear the baby’s heartbeat with a stethescope. I was saying how it would be nice to just be able to listen whenever I want. Well, a few days later what was waiting for me in the mail? A stethescope! It was even sweeter because Darling Husband has been out of town working for the past 3 weeks. It made me smile 🙂
What are you researching? Right now I am reading “Happiest Baby on the Block” by Dr. Harvey Karp. Basically it’s just about tricks on how to keep colic/crying to a minimum. It’s good! We’ll see how good it is when I try to put these tricks to practice!

@bwaychick: Thanks for starting the new thread! Love the rollcall. 🙂 You don’t have me or SimplyChic11 down. I believe both of our due dates are the 24th and both boys. I dont think they moved simply’s date yet…
Post # 6
@MrsDW: Thanks! Sorry- I must have copied and pasted the roll call before you guys found out. Added!
Post # 7
I’m not on the list – 24th so far but that may change after this week- baby’s big! Boy 🙂
How far along are you? 25 weeks 2 days
Baby Name if you are sharing? Dominic (still undecided middle name!)
Symptoms? Morning sickness with vomiting every few days, leg cramps, sciatica, new and lovely mini contractions if I over exercise since this past week. oh and pukey burps- let’s not forget those. Generally feeling huge and squished with little room to breathe.
If you are having a shower, when is it? not sure. I don’t think we’re having one at all but may be getting together with a select few.
Where are you registered? Target so far- needing to go back and edit though since we got a lot of our big items already online
Nursery Theme? classic pooh bear
Weight gain? – no clue lol- I don’t look anymore but I know I’m slightly over 20 lbs.
Stretch marks? a few on my bum and right hip 🙁 thankfully they aren’t too bad and seem to be fading.
Rings on or off? stuck 😛
Belly button in or out? out- definitely.
Sweetest thing Darling Husband has done for you while pregnant? Wake up with me at 3 am to rub out my back and feet after getting cramps in them. 🙂 Also pregnancy massage as a birthday gift last month.
What are you researching? More on breastfeeding and making baby things at home- lotions etc, with all natural ingredients like raw shea butter and coconut oil.

Sweetest thing Darling Husband has done for you while pregnant? Gets in the shower with me and rubs my back and he’ll massage my feet. The back rubbing though is the most amazing thing, and I feel better enough to sleep for a bit after which is always great.

Post # 10

Stretch marks? some are showing up on my belly, not sure if they are new or just re-appearing.
Rings on or off? on! And it feels bigger than normal.
Belly button in or out? was really deep but its slowly getting shallower. I was hoping it would stay in!
Sweetest thing Darling Husband has done for you while pregnant? completely cleaned out the babies room on his off day after I had a meltdown. Or that he bought a belt with speakers so we can play little man some music.
What are you researching? starting to look into breast pumps (need to see if insurance covers one), and how being rh negative could effect my labor/delivery/future babies.

Belly button in or out? Mostly out.
Sweetest thing Darling Husband has done for you while pregnant? He told me “You handle pregnancy so gracefully, I don’t know how you do it.” :’) He’s been doing little sweet gestures here and there like making me “egg mcmuffins” for breakfast before work and one day he stopped in to visit me at work and brought me a decaf iced coffee, I thought it was sweet.
What are you researching? Breast pumps (and how my insurance handles it), baby gear on craigslist and stuff for the nursery.

Will do roll call tomorrow at work when I can copy/paste easier on th computer.
Just needed to say that I’m sooo uncomfortable tonight! Baby boy has made a nice home for himself up under my ribs and they are so sore! I cannot gt comfortable at all, not even laying down on the couch is doing any good 🙁

@MrsDW: I am loving your stash and everything anotherbee posted! It makes me want to shop shop shop!
So we have decided to get a changin table afterall. We are having a friend who is a carpenter make it for us. With the cloth diapering I though it would just be easier to have a space specifically for changing LO when we are home.
Post # 16
@Sweethart: we were going to buy a changing table until the inlaws bought us the dresser aka changing station. I can’t wait to see your homemade one! 🙂 the shopping is dangerous! I feel like I have tons now. There’s probably another stash like that in the basement. I’m waiting to wash it all after the baby shower to see if I should return anything.
