    Sparky is 6 and is a female. Little nervous about bringing another female into the house since it's always been the 5 nephews.

    3) What does your dh do now that you're preggo to make life a little easier?
    He starts my car every morning to make it warm, goes food shopping with me so I don't lift anything and is all about the garbage!

    Virgo - very detail oriented!!!

    2) How old are your pets and are they male or female?
    Dunkin fat cat is 7ish and my big boy. Hes super jealous so I dont know how he will react to 3 new beings in the house. Charlotte is my tiny girl (avatar) she is literally brain dammaged so everytime she sees the babes it will be new to her. LOL

    Poor guy has to do everything with me on bedrest but I know he hates doing the cat litter the most, hes been doing that since we started fertility treatments.

    4) What is your strongest astological trait?
    Pisces- Soooooo sensitive and a huge worry wart.

    5) How many brothers or sisters do you have and where do you fall in the birth order?
    1 brother and I am two years older than him.

    That was fun, who's next?

    A little bored (and lazy) here, too. It's raining and DH is OBSESSED with the NCAA tournament. I enjoy a little basketball, but we are talkin' both TV's and his laptop simultaneously devoted to college basketball, it's a little much.

    1) When is your anniversary?
    September 2, 1995 (We will celebrate our 10 year anniversary with a new baby, never would have guessed on our wedding day that it would take 10 years to have our first baby)

    2) How old are your pets and are they male or female?
    Ely is 13 and a big, fat lazy boy cat with attitude, very friendly and self-assured. Milo is 7 (on Tuesday!) and is huge chicken, afraid of everyone except me and Jeremy, afraid of the vaccuum, plastic bags, his tail.

    3) What does your dh do now that you're preggo to make life a little easier?
    Goes grocery shopping with me or does it himself, does all the laundry, a lot of the housework (ok, just about everything that the cleaning lady doesn't do, I am so lucky on this one), cat box cleaning, cat barf cleanup.

    4) What is your strongest astological trait?
    Aquarius-friendship is very important to me, optimistic, unpredictable

    5) How many brothers or sisters do you have and where do you fall in the birth order?
    2 sisters, I am the oldest at 35, middle sister is 29, youngest is 10
    Jen 36, DH 36
    TTC #1 5 years. IVF #1BFN, FET #1 BFP!

    So lucky to be an AHM!

    Hi all, bored at work...

    anniversary: Sept 20, 1997

    pets: 2 male cats: Farley is my older fat cat, he's 7 and Casper is my baby cat, he is 8 months old. My older cat, Scooter, had to be put to sleep in September for a large tumor on her throat/mouth, she was 12 1/2 years old and I miss her!!

    DH does the cat litter. Other than that, NOT MUCH!! I have to let him know all that your DH's do so he can comply

    I am also an Aquarius and friendship is very important to me.

    I have 1 biological sister, 2 half brothers that are twins, a step sister and a step brother. I am the oldest of my sister and twin brothers, my step siblings are quite a bit older than I am (step dad's kids from a previous marriage)

    Perfect timing for this post as my dh has gone out bowling (first time without me, wow!) and I was just gonna have a bowl of my Corn Pops and off to bed...

    1) When is your anniversary?
    May 15th, 1999

    2) How old are your pets and are they male or female?
    1 dog, Roxy, 4.5 yrs, female border collie and lab mix. I have one fish at home, it's about 1 year old and I have about 10 more in a pond outside but they sleep through the winter.

    3) What does your dh do now that you're preggo to make life a little easier?
    We always shared chores 50/50 but since I am pg he got me cleaning lady and he changes my dd diper as I gag when I have to change #2. He bathes my dd and does all the heavy lifting like shopping or laundry. He also takes care of the dog more now as my pooch is crazy and I can't handle her right now.

    4) What is your strongest astological trait?
    I don't know - I think Aries cause I am very stubborn.

    5) How many brothers or sisters do you have and where do you fall in the birth order?
    1 sister who is 2.5 years younger but gets pissed off because everyone thinks she is older (she just looks more serious). She is a very good person and I wish that my dd would have a sister like that one day (maybe Tuesday???).

    good idea...we went out to dinner tonight with friends, but the boys wanted to keep on hanging out at the bar, and i'm just not bar material anymore i'm sure the pregnant belly would get some strange looks.

    1) When is your anniversary?
    May 29th, 2004

    2) How old are your pets and are they male or female?
    homer and trei will be 4 on april 28th. they are fat lazy cats. homer is a yellow tiger, and trei is a dark tiger. mulligan will be 3 on july 24.

    3) What does your dh do now that you're preggo to make life a little easier?
    he does all the poop control (cat and dog). does the dishes during the week, puts the laundry away. does basically anything that i ask (with maybe a little bit of griping). he actually does more when he's not asked then when he is. it's better when he thinks it's his idea!

    4) What is your strongest astological trait?
    i'm an aries....totally.....i'm the 'bull-headed ram' they talk about. i like things my way. i'm very anal, and like order in my life. dh has made me a little more relaxed, but i'm still pretty anal.

    5) How many brothers or sisters do you have and where do you fall in the birth order?
    i'm the oldest. i have a biological brother who is 22, and 3 adopted brothers who are 8, 6, & 2.

    My turn... our nursery was painted yesterday too, I LOVE it!! It's the prettiest blue called "morning breeze" from Home Depot. (DH wouldn't let me paint -sometimes he's OVERprotective and I wouldn't let him paint - he's a lot of things, but handy is NOT one of them!! The first ceiling smack or drip on the carpet would've been the end of the world!)
    Michele, I am so sorry about your Scooter! That is so sad and so painful!!

    When is your anniversary?
    May 31st, 2003 (best day of my life so far-think about it everyday)

    2) How old are your pets and are they male or female?
    My sweet little Digby!! He's a 3 year old Bichon. Our first born and best friend. He goes to work with me everyday. So, when we do leave him home he does suffer from a little bit of seperation anxiety. Doggy Prozac? I think he'll be great with a baby.

    3) What does your dh do now that you're preggo to make life a little easier?
    He does all the grocery shopping (but he always has since he says he can go sooo much faster and spend sooo much less than when I am along ), he vacuums and sweeps the hard floors, takes out all garbage, lifts anything heavy and gets mad if I do (ie: shelves last weekend!).

    4) What is your strongest astological trait?
    Virgo - very detail oriented!!!

    5) How many brothers or sisters do you have and where do you fall in the birth order?
    I have one older brother who is 35

    Who's next???
