Evening Primrose oil), I already had my first post partum poop (no big deal, probably thanks to the lack of meds).
And my milk is coming in strong, which is wonderful because little Indie has already lost 9% of her body weight - probably cause labour was so short she was still all full of mucous when they weighed her. So my only complaint is having to wake her up every 2 hours to BF (and deal with those killer contractions)... Tonight is the first night we'll have both our little ladies here, and Azula's sleepovers with my in-laws have completely thrown off her sleep schedule. So wish us luck! I am going to be seriously exhausted tomorrow.
Frances, that outfit is my favourite! I love the NB ones with the little sleeves that fold over. The one in the picture is a well loved hand-me-down from Azula.Azula Rosemary

@frances - Oh, sorry, I didn't mean to "ignore" you there, I didn't see your message before I posted last time! Sometimes I just leave a reply in progress for a long time and work on it in small increments over an afternoon/evening as I can snatch the time. Which is fine unless somebody posts another message and I forget to refresh the page before I post my reply. Oops. That's really terrible about your pipes. Our neighbor was telling us about another subdivision nearby where pretty much everybody in the section has problems with their plumbing, but in that case the building contractors hired incompetent plumbers. Sorry you got the "lemon" house, that's so discouraging. It really isn't the end of the world even though it totally feels like it, you'll get through! Lots of people manage to make it with houses in-progress. My husband grew up in a house that his parents had to remodel; he and his brothers tell stories about having no floor and stepping between floor supports to get through the living room, ha! Sounds like things are going well for the big boy room so that's good! Are you painting, or do you have a theme? Good luck with the e-mail, I hope you can be effective and nobody gets upset or anything!
@thunderbolt - You know I think Katie had Coral on her list all along, and it came up from behind in the end! I'm hung up on the middle name for my little girl, and I keep looking at new options, but I go back and check the old lists too, because I'm pretty sure I'll probably end up using something that has been staring at me the whole time. :-P
@kaite (and everyone) - Good news: I've had 4 babies and I totally forgot about the nursing contractions there at first. I'm pretty sure that motherhood gives you some kind of brain damage, ha! But anyway, it does get better and someday you will even forget about it.
Have a good day with both of your little ladies! Just take your time and rest as much as you can, and give yourself permission to concentrate on the adjustment as your most important job this week!
I'm working on new chore schedules this week, doing some re-organizing, and plotting painting the kitchen. And working on crocheting the baby blanket, which normally would have been long done by now but my fall was so insane I'm only just now starting it! I hit 32 weeks and I guess the nesting panic is setting in. Well, actually I've been slogging through the fall insanity waiting for this time to come so I could actually think about how I want to organize things, but now that I'm finally done with the holidays, 8 weeks does NOT sound like very much time anymore. My kitchen has been sitting in primer, with no doors on the cabinets, for almost 2 years, waiting for a "turn" among so many other projects that had to be done. But...I've had it! There's a lot I WANT to do in there but if I can at least put paint on the walls before the baby comes, I think my sanity will be rescued.
My little gal turned herself around and has been trying to stick her little butt out the top of my belly. It's so funny, even though it makes me go OW!Due March 3 - it's a girl!

Thunderbolt- Just had to add my two cents, I absolutely LOVE the name Hazel. If this baby had been a girl, Hazel would have been a front-runner for us. I like your other names too, just something extra special about that name to me.
Sara- no need to apologize! I aspire to be as thoughtful as you in your responses. (Sigh) Maybe one day, but I doubt it. Good luck on the kitchen remodel. I'm glad to know your husband grew up in a house that was constantly undergoing renovations, as that seems like our destiny at the moment.
Side note to those of you pregnant with baby boys. I don't want to dive too deep into this topic, because everyone has their own opinions, but FYI, we had to have Hal's circumcision re-done today. It has been a traumatic process for all involved, and has left me super stressed about not repeating the same thing with Kurt. IF you are having a boy, and IF you decide to have him circumcised, PLEASE do yourself a favor and find out who will be doing it. If you are concerned in ANY way, you can request the hospital not do it and find YOUR own doctor within a month of bringing baby home. Just wanting anyone else to avoid this situation if possible. Hopefully, the worst is over and Hal will be healed by the time Kurt is born and won't remember any of this as an adult.It's Official: Mother of Two, now

and Kurt Matthew!

Due Feb 3rd, Gender is a Surprise!
Did not know about this thread. We are due February 3 with #2, though it feels like it will be any day. We have chosen not to find out the sex of the baby, same as last time. Best moment of my life, looking forward to sharing it again with DH.
If it's a boy: John Thatcher
If it's a girl: Gemma Lucy or Lucy Gretchen, terribly torn between the two.
Baby is VERY active all the time and has dropped so very heavy in lower abdomen, definitely making getting around and caring for a two year old difficult. LOTS of Braxton Hicks too.

sara, just reading all your plans makes me tired! I'm waiting for that extra burst of nesting energy, but with just over a month to go it's nowhere to be found this time. Luckily there's not TOO terribly much we need to get done.
frances, thank you for the vote of confidence on Hazel! I truly think that would be the one if not for the fact that I worry about popularity. It just FEELS right, yk? And then the other night I stumbled across this poem that I love and even though it's not even really about the hazel bough it just made me feel even more connected to the name: http://www.poetryfoundation.org/poem/244302
kitkat, welcome! I commented on your other thread but I really like both your girl options! Hard choice!
