    You Can Make A Compote From Apples With Some Cinnamon. Just cut apples up, take the middle out, add some sugar (or not since you might be worried about bs) and a cinnamon stick (or up to half a teaspoon of cinnamon - your taste) and boil in water for like 30-40 min. Drain and keep in fridge up to 1 week. Apples from it are very tasty too anD can be frozen.

    Thanks ladies, !!! Week 19 to 20 felt super long, lol, but I'm already +2 days beyond 20wks and just feeling so much more relaxed about everything . We knew at 17wks ds's heart had stopped, but I didn't deliver until 19wks so it's one of those weeks along the way that I'm glad to have behind me .

    July is going to go by quickly with the holiday weekend, appts, and various planned activities. I'm also loosely starting school this week with my 7yr olds and 4yr old...lol, they've been begging to start ever since their books arrived . I'm having my 6th and 8th grader start a couple subjects each on the 14th, adding another subject in Aug, and the rest in Sept . We'll be easing back into our typical school routine after this weekend.

    Eta...oh and I'm excited to have consistently logged my food intake on MFP for 1 month and have stayed within my net goals for the macros on average . I have had a few days and even the entire first week where I was over on calories, but that's really a non-issue, especially during pg, and I couldn't be happier with the overall nutritional picture this month !

    Our power went out due to strong storms at around 1am yesterday morning and it didn't come back on until 5pm...so not too bad . The kids and I went out for ice cream, spent a couple hours at the park, got pizza for dinner, and went to the beach after dh got home...it was *such* a nice day and it felt so good to get out of the house !! I'm catching up on everything today though...lol, amazing how much builds up after just one day of not being able to do laundry, dishes, or vacuum in a household with 11 people .

    I found a seamstress type tape measure and measured my fundal height out of curiosity and it's 21...absolutely perfect . I wasn't concerned since I feel like growth is good and Mocha is super wiggly .

    This week is going by fast, woot !

    My 7yr old DD (Rachel) wanted to take pics and I thought this was a cute one from yesterday just before we left for the beach (I was thrilled my bathing suit still fits, yaay)

    I hadn't been feeling well the last couple days...I think it's a virus . Oddly, it's diarrhea/cramps/bloating, extreme fatigue, headache/bodyaches, and a mild sore throat...weird combo and I'd associate it with something else (allergies and gastritis/GERD), but my 2y/o and 7y/o have it too . Anyway, I took tylenol and maalox before bed and slept until 11:30 this morning (I *never* sleep in) and woke up feeling much better...still a bit tired and crampy/bloated, but not feeling sick/achy .

    My next appt is 2wks from tomorrow. I'm kind of meh about this one since I'm not due for any labs that I know of or u/s so it'll just be vitals, a few second of listening to baby on doppler (they don't get a count), and asking if I have any questions. I think at the following appt they'll do a growth scan, repeat CBC and thyroid labs, and probably have me do the glucose testing (not sure how or if they do it here).

    I'm starting school with my 3rd, 1st, and K4 kiddos today . They are so excited and have been asking to start for weeks...I love their enthusiasm !! LOL, I wish I felt as enthusiastic about starting as they do, but it feels like we just wrapped up last year (they were done in early April since we start early, but my older kids finished in late May and I still have to touch up their transcripts before 2013-14 is officially complete) . What I *do* feel excited about though is a 2 month break come Nov/Dec (and possible part of Oct depending on when Mocha arrives) so that is my focus and motivation right now .

    I talked with dh on our walk yesterday and we planned out a couple family day trips for this summer that I'm super excited about ! I love Lake Michigan and we're only about 2hrs away so we're headed to the beach and sand dunes on the 19th, woot ! We are also planning to go to the Toledo Zoo "for our anniversary" (19yrs )...we'll have a date night too, but we like to do something with our kids around that time...it's mostly just an excuse to plan something fun for the whole family .

    I had my morning coffee, but no breakfast yet...my stomach/intestines are still giving me some troubles today, but I feel 100% otherwise .

    I'm going to start my list today of baby items I want/need and things I want/need to do before baby comes...feeling so much more peaceful that things are going to go well and ready to get my list started .
