Zoe!, Zoe!, Zoe! Come on baby girl!!
Yay for BH, I agree, Zoe will be here by tomorrow :)
I chose Wednesday on the poll but I hope you're all right and I'm wrong!!
Migraines are the worst--I know I've mentioned this recently but I had them all through my pregnancy (I normally get them with AF, every 2 or 3 months) and it was awful. After one over the holidays at 14 weeks that lasted for five days, I broke down and called my doctor in tears and she told me to take Excedrin Migraine immediately and not to worry about it for one more second. I took a half dose with a cup of coffee and it actually worked, so that's what I did from then on whenever they'd pop up, and I never suffered for more than a couple of hours again. I read a study recently that said there's something unique about the combo of aspirin/acetaminophen/caffeine that is MUCH more powerful against migraines than any of those alone. You should definitely ask your doctor first, of course, but if this keeps happening, know that it can be fine to take that.
We had a totally awesome weekend, and I am so excited for Thanksgiving! Super busy/important week to get through first, but it's only 3 days, so I'm already mentally skipping ahead to Thursday. ;)
I'm so thankful for living near family. Yes sometimes it can be a mega pain in the butt, but other times it's the best thing EVER. Addy got to play with her cousins both Friday and Sunday this weekend (she is old enough now to be able to REALLY play with them, and each time it was over, she would cry for the next several hours "I'm so SAD! I miss my cousins!!!" Awwww...), and she went to my mom's while we went out for my SIL's birthday on Saturday night. A fantastic time was had by all. I can't wait until these girls are big enough for sleepovers.
That's good to know about the migraine medicine, I will definitely ask if I get more of these between now and my next appointment. Tylenol doesn't really do much of anything. My head feels better today, but I can feel the pressure lurking just below the surface and I am just really nauseous. I had better be feeling well by Thanksgiving, I want to be able to enjoy the big meal!
That's so sweet that Adair likes playing with her cousins so much and so nice to be close to them. My mom and sister always made a point to get together for a week or longer every summer or Christmas when I was growing up, so me and my siblings are really close to my cousins. We had so much fun playing together and would look forward to seeing eachother again between every visit.
That was me too--I only ever saw my closest cousin at Christmas, but we played like CRAZY the whole visit every year and I loved and anticipated seeing her so much! Those are some of my best childhood memories.
We had them over to our house on Friday and it was awesome because they pulled out all these toys that Addy never plays with (they're 3, 5, and 7 so they're into dressup and elaborate imaginary games) and Addy was right in there with them like "Oh, THAT'S how you play with this stuff! Cool!" It was really cute, and she was actually playing much more independently the whole rest of the weekend after that, too.
And that's really sweet about her missing her cousins. One of the reasons why I really wanted to stay here is for Aiden to get to spend time with his two cousins that live here (5 & 10). He has 3 more out in Colorado (26, 11, and 6) that I doubt if he'll ever really know though. My poor kids will never have cousins near their ages unless for some reason I'm still having kids when my sister finally gets around to them in 10 years (doubtful).
I did have cousins all around my age and although I only ever saw them 2-3 times a year, we always picked up where we left off and had a blast together. My closest cousin is now a doctor (he's in his residency) and refuses to talk to any of us anymore though. :roll:
Oh so my 3cm sorority sister? She went into labor naturally last night and I think had him about an hour ago (I don't expect her husband to answer me straight up just yet lol)! I'm really excited for her! Though part of me can't help but look at my belly going "Really Zoe?! This boy's EDD isn't even here yet! Can you take a clue?" :lol: 9 days till 42 weeks, so she's got plenty of time still at least.
From my BFF. Her LO just turned 11 months.
"My kid just ran over to the dog bed, climbed on it, jumped off the edge, fell down, and got up laughing!
I'm very scared for the future."
I grew up close to 2 of my cousins and my niece (we're 9mo apart). The 4 of us stayed with our Aunt & Gma a lot together. Good memories. Madison has 2 cousins on each side close to her age one she sees everyday at daycare and the other about 4-5 times a year.
