Oh poor baby!! I feel so bad for him! He's being so good and going potty and ends up with a terrible injury! I want to hug him.

i wanted to take a picture of his first potty injury but he was whiney and didn't want me to so i backed off. it looked terrible. DH was trying to get him to "man up". I just scooped him up and let him cry on my shoulder on the couch for about 10 minutes. He's such a little momma's boy!

Well, of course, I mean, just look at us. We ROCK!

It won't be much longer and you'll know for sure. I'd likely just go by the time you think is your due date, based on when you got a + and when you think you O'd and call that your due date. You know your body best Anna! That way you can just jump on in to whichever board. ORRRRRRR, we can just be your BB again!!!! Remember, I made that suggestion already!!!!

That would be April 4th. I'm also not fond of being so close to the beginning of the month or the end of the month. I'm just whiney I guess. AND I'm not going anywhere. You will be subjected to all of my pregnancy complaints and celebrations. Every u/s pic, etc. I will force it on you all!

i hope your test comes very soon!! then you will know

Eeek! I'm so excited! I knew it was too soon for it to arrive today, but I was hoping it would be here anyway when I checked the mail. I stalk my front window waiting for the mail to run!

I think we want to be bothered. :mrgreen: After all, it keeps up the baby fever. Besides, we're love to talk about anything and everything.

So I have this spot on my lower tummy, starting at my c/s scar and going up about 2 inches wide that is completely numb. It has been since the c/s. At first I was hoping the feeling would come back eventually but it's been 10 months. . .

i still can't feel around my c/s scar. the scar itself and about an inch all around it. it's really annoying. it's been like that for 13 years now.

((hugs))

I've heard it's common. I don't have any numb parts, but my OB did tell me that it's common and normal to be numb in areas for awhile (if not forever). Nerves were cut and there's no way of knowing how they ran and such.

i think for some (or all?) it will be that way. when i was talking to my SIL she said hers was still numb and her son is almost 4. My mom said hers is still numb too.

Around my scar I can feel, but I don't feel the same way as the rest of me if you know what I mean. It's not numb, but it's not as strong of a sensation as it was.

So I need ideas on how to tell DH that I'm pregnant whenever it does happen. He told me this past weekend that he wants something more exciting than me crying on the couch and telling him to look in the bathroom. (He thought there was a huge spider in there :lol:)

i'm at the end of AF and she was horribly nasty this month so yeah, it's too soon to hope. i am going to get online tomorrow and order a boat load of OPK's and HPT's. i know me and i know there will be lots of early testing so might as well get some cheapies!

I had no idea it was so common. That's really comforting actually. If it's that common, I'm sure my OB likely mentioned it and I was either too drugged or excited about my baby to notice.

i wanted to do something really cool when i found out i was pregnant with DS and DD2, but in the end I just blurted it out. since this will be our last, maybe i can contain myself this time. so, i guess i really don't have any ideas, but i need some too.

I can embroider a t-shirt for Aiden that says "Not an only child" or something. OR you can make some kind of dessert with an announcement on it. . . . hmmm I know I'm more creative than all this, my brain stopped functioning about 3 hours ago.

I was in such shock the first time I just ran to get him to make him look at the test. This time was similar. I really wanted to be cute about it, but I couldn't even contain myself. I mean that very moment I immediately grabbed my camera to post pics on here!

Honestly? My best friend Becky (the one due in Dec) will probably know first followed by y'all. Then DH. ROFL
I just don't see him enough and if I tell people that it's safe to tell I can get away with not telling others for a lot longer.

Ugh. That took forever. Teagan is finally asleep. I changed things up a bit and nursed her to sleep in our bedroom. I usually do it on the couch with the TV on. I'd rather that didn't continue to be our bedtime routine so I figured I'd read her a few books then nurse her to sleep. An hour later it finally worked.
