Baby decided to arrive on the 23rd. We named him Thomas Gerard. (for St. Thomas More and St. Gerard.). Baby and I are doing well and should be sent home from the hospital later today if everything checks out. I'll post a birth story once I get some more time.

Short story: this was the most difficult pregnancy and labor that I've had so far, but the best hospital experience so far. I wish I could have had all my kids here; my doctor and nursing staff were amazing!

Congratulations!!!!!! My husband and I love St. Thomas More. (We have his portrait in our home. lol!) It was one of the reasons we also used Thomas for our son's middle name, along with it being a family name as well.

God bless you and your family.

Congrats SummerSmiles!!!!! Beautiful name. Thomas is my ds#2 middle name, after Thomas Aquinas and St. Thomas More.

AFM, doing well, I actually slept all night last night. We moved ds#2 out of our bedroom last week into the bedroom with ds#1, and he went from waking 3-5 times a night to sleeping through the night in just 2 weeks. (Yes he was sick for a while and waking almost 5 times or more a night, while sleeping in our room).

I still feel really small for being over 30 weeks. Though today I felt like I was leading with my belly while walking. And sitting in a chair at work is getting more and more difficult. I am supposed to be putting my feet up at work, but it is hard to do with 2 office chairs.

Getting sick in the morning again. Sigh, luckily this pretty routine at all stages of pregnancy for me, so it at least something seems normal about this pregnancy.

Congratulations Summer Smiles! Those are both such wonderful saints!

AFM.. calling the doctor this morning and figuring out which doctor to go see. I started vomited blood two days ago, and while I didn't think it was that big a deal (it happened a lot with pregnancy #1 with a lot more blood because I have ulcer problems...) DH is pretty upset I didn't call the doctor yesterday. Of course in the morning I feel fine... and then at night I get sick again so today I'm going to call like I probably should have all along.

And maybe she'll say "hey, by the way, you're fine! You don't need to be on bedrest anymore!" It's day 12 and while it hasn't been as horrible as I imagined it would be, I also can't imagine another 6 months of this. I'm really hoping she at least gives me the okay to fly to California to stay with my family for the summer. I don't want to be on bedrest in Florida with no family around, with DH working all day in some internship and with the girls on my own...

Congrats, Pudding!! I thinks it's wonderful that you had your baby at home. If practicing midwives weren't outlawed in this state, I would have mine at home as well.

WhiteYacht, I am also 21 weeks 6 day. Maybe we will have our babies on Labor Day.

YEA! Welcome new mommies.

Today is quite a bit better. My BH are still super strong, but they have not been constant like yesterday.

Yay!! welcome to the new mommas. Blenderx, I have been following the pregnant or not thread and will pray that you find peace. I have babies born in 09, 10, and this next one in 12. But I don't have twins. So I will make you my special intention for a while.

Having BHs as well. So far it has been due to carrying my daughter or walking longer distance. Last night had couple really painful ones in the middle of the night..
