Wellll, my parents already knew, but none of my siblings did, so that was fun. Everyone feels obligated to say "Don't you know what causes that?! Har, har." Groooooan. I think people were happy for us though. Thanks for the compliments, ladies, you made me smile
Greci - I'm off to check out Penney's in a sec. I bought shorts there this weekend for Ivy for next year for about $2 a pair (BAM!), but they didn't have maternity stuff in store.
Sarah - Darn, I missed the pic! I check out for a few days, and I miss TEA PARTY pics?!
Otter - No, she never, ever stops moving. Not even in her sleep! I think she was doing a booty dance and flapping her hands in that photo. I mean, what else can you do when you have 3 mirrors in one tiny room?!
Tuitree - Ayla's room sounds very similar to Ivy's. It's a little darker than dove, with white furniture and a couple different shades of teal/pink/purple. I figure if baby is a boy, all I'll have to do is roll up the rug and switch out the pink baskets
Rookachoo - Oh my god, hugs. Lots of them. Both of my babies have really enjoyed playing hide and seek with the doppler and it. is. TERRIFYING. I'm sorry you're having such an awful time with illness, and can only imagine the stress that puts on you I know you said you've tried nasal rinses. Does that include a netti pot? Because I totally second that recommendation, just make sure you use distilled water to avoid putting additional bacteria in there. Also, if you have seasonal allergies at all that might be irritating things or perpetuating the infection, you might try rooibos tea with raw honey. Rooibos can help with inflammation, and has really given me relief with my seasonal allergies as long as I drink a cup in the morning and evening. I'm sorry that I don't have more advice!
tintri - You look amazing! So freaking adorable! The way you carry the baby is so different from woman to woman, I really wouldn't worry. People just feel like they have to say something, and sometimes they choose the most obnoxious/annoying things! I'm so glad your scare wasn't real, but that is one hilarious tale to remember. I once showed up at work with a pair of underwear (men's, no less) attached to my pant leg. Yay for static cling and not checking the mirror before I left the house!
Sarahmezz - thanks for updating the first page!
Milasmommy - Glad to hear that baby's doing well! Good luck with getting everyone recovered from jet lag.
Frances - I'm sorry that it wasn't a good visit with the in laws. It's amazing the amount of stress that some people can put on others without a second thought (I may be reading this wrong, I'm just basing it off of what I think I remember from previous posts). Only 10 days until your gender scan, yay!Tara, proud mama to a Honey Badger

MilasMama- Haha, NO! This one has me so confused. At first, I would have sworn it was a girl, because my N/V has been way out of control (not like with Hal) and my acne is awful as well (also, not like the first pregnancy.) However, if you take those away, everything else is exactly the same as my first, the way I'm carrying, how much weight I've gained, the way my clothes are fitting. I dreamed that I sent my blood off for a gender analysis and I got back this 1,000 page report and I was tearing through all the pages trying to make sense of all the charts and graphs and I STILL couldn't figure it out what the sex of this baby was. Hopefully the wait is almost over and they can get a good enough picture to know for sure. We are frantically trying to decide on a potential girl's name, because I want to announce both at the same time. It is an odd feeling, though, not knowing. Somehow, I just knew all along with Hal that he was a little boy, even from the very beginning. In some ways, even though we waited to find out with Hal, I feel like this baby is my true surprise.
P.S. Thanks for all the supportive comments about the in-laws. I needed that this morning ladies!It's Official: Mother of Two, now

Hey ladies! Lots of boys coming since I was last on here! We still haven't scheduled our anatomy scan - I am hoping it will be in about 3.5 weeks though. I am starting to look a little more pregnant (almost 16 weeks) but still not feeling baby move, boo. Neither myself or hubby have a guess yet as to whether we are having a boy or girl! Haven't brought the maternity clothes bin out of the basement but I think I will have to soon, at least for longer shirts
Hope everyone (and their kiddos) is feeling better and recovering from their sinus infections, eating hairbrush pieces, etc!!! My almost 19 month old has gotten really into the word "no" over the past week so that's what we have been dealing with in my house...yikes. We finally finished putting up all the decorations in her room - we moved just over a month ago now - just in time to find out if baby #2 is a boy or girl. Meaning we will start getting the nursery ready and need to get her out of the crib. Ahh! Not a transition I'm too excited for. Someone please tell me their child did great with it, all the no napping stories got me scared. That's the only time I get to myself! Maybe she will surprise me...Kennedi

@tk - Oh, sorry you missed the pic! I'll post it again. I only have this one from a camera phone but you can get the idea ;-) STILL waiting for the photo people to get me some real pictures!
Here's a bonus...I "debuted" the bump this weekend. I "popped" enough all of a sudden that I couldn't really "hide" it anymore, so I decided to just settle the question for all the "suspicious eyes" people. I broke out the maternity tops and wore the bump as an accessory, haha. All of the ladies said I was so cute, and all the men who saw me wrestling my 17-month-old said, "You have your hands full." I didn't manage to "zing" anybody with a snappy comeback because I actually was too busy with the kids, but one time I actually was thinking on my feet and informed the guy that I have 8 siblings and I'm not even close to having my hands full yet. I wish I had a picture of the horrified look on that guy's face, it was soooooo funny.
My husband has gotten the "you know what causes that" comment from time to time and he has two responses. One is to grin and say we know exactly what causes it, we enjoy it very much. The other is to act all confused and say, "No, no really we have no idea. Could you give us a pointer or two??" Bahahaha. It's such a stupid comment, I mean, do people think they are clever? We've heard it a million times before from all the other "clever" people. If you feel like you HAVE to say something, "congratulations" is always appropriate.
@frances, Sorry about your rotten weekend. Hope you get a good peek at your upcoming sonogram!! I can't guess what mine is. I have such a weird hodgpodge of strange symptoms that as soon as I talk myself into thinking it's a boy, I consider the other strange signs and wonder if it's a girl! Your dream made me giggle...ahhh such a typical pregnancy dream! I know a couple of people who announced Baby's name after the ultrasound.
@corajsb, best wishes for your ultrasound, too! It's exciting to see the announcements as they post.
@milasmommy - Oh, it makes me tired thinking of all that traveling and jetlag, with a pregnancy and a toddler?? Hope you get some good rest, lady.
@trintri - yes, how did it go with the doctor's office after that embarrassing little escapade?
@ottilie - feel better, are you still sick in bed?
@kenzing10 - I missed your message! Personally, I don't bother to move kids to a new bed until THEY seem ready. I think it's just a lot of hassle and lost sleep, and if you wait it out a couple more months, the kid decides he/she WANTS the "big kid" bed anyway. I'd rather spend my parenting energy on things like teaching the kid to come when I call, no matter what -- THAT could save his/her life someday. I'll just use a bassinet, or pack & play, or maybe I'll buy another crib used and wait it out. There's a whole lot to parenting that involves just choosing which battles are worth fighting. Each parent does what they think is best though, so whatever you decide just stick to your guns :-)
Hope everyone else had a great weekend.
