17 weeks with baby girl # 3

So much going on lately with the new house. moving, and vacations! My morning sickness went away around 15 weeks. Phew! but my low energy still lingered until 16 weeks, but hasn't gone away completely. :( I still can't drink much water without it making me gaggy. My belly button is popping out more this week, and I'm starting into the " I look pregnant not just fat" phase. I'm feeling like I have a LOT to do! I'm starting to think of nursery decorations. Well, not really decorations but all things nursery, or better yet girls room. We are going to paint the walls and add in baseboards! and re- finish our hardwood floors Oh, where to begin!? I want to make sure that through all of the crazy mess I still document our baby girl .

Any names?  We still have the same list from Piper, with a few added to it.

Any Ultrasounds?  Quite a few when she was a teeny little thing,but none recently.

Have you heard the heart beat?  Of course we have!  We hear it at every appointment and I have a doppler at home. I never tire of it.

Who do you think it will look like?  Since she’s a girl Maybe a mix of Chloe and Piper?

Any complications?  Nope.

Formula or Breastfeeding? Breast is best! I plan to pump and nurse around the clock to keep a supply in the freezer, and Keep my supply high.
