I totally see something too!
And Evan hates the hand driers too -- and now when he hears them he thinks it's an auto flush and double freaks out.
Bronx Zoo? I had to laugh when we went there last year I think my dogs have more space than their wild dogs ;) I keep debating if we should go visit my sister with the kids this fall...Rory is just such a needy man I'm afraid we'd all be up all night long if he freaked out and refused to sleep.
Lauren AwW for feeling kicks!
not bronx zoo - we will go there next week when DH takes some time off - we just went to the little one in our park - Lily likes to see the sea lions eat breakfast so we go a lot!
Lily does surprisingly well with sleep when we visit family - we still cosleep though, so that probably has a lot to do with it. I think we are probably going to start thinking about a bed for her.
Lauren - Oh I sooo miss baby kicks. Calvin didn't kick much (well, anterior placenta probably didn't help), so I really hope baby #3 ends up being a big kicker.
AFM - I broke down and peed on another stick tonight. Someone please lock up my pee sticks and my money cards so I can't buy anymore, LOL. It's still faint, BUT it did get darker from the one I posted a pic of. You don't really have to try too hard to see the line now (IRL, that is... I'm guessing it would still be faint in a picture).
Lauren - I ran on the treadmill today. I try to coordinate napping and get 30 mins/3miles in. It's hit or miss but I keep trying! I do sometimes take them out and run but I really don't like not having my arms. I'm a horrible runner, I look like I'm dying and it's worse if i'm pushing 50lbs of kid/stroller!
Erica - that sounds like fun! I wish we had something like that close! Rory cosleeps too but if he's out of sorts it's hard to get him to really relax even with us. So different than Evan who loves to sleep in his own space - he can't settle at ALL unless he's alone.
LOL... I'm a terrible runner too. Well, I was a terrible runner the last time I attempted it, which was probably about 6 years ago. I doubt I've gotten any better at it since then, hahahah. ;)
Why do I seem to get logged out all the time??? I check the remember me box, but it still logs me out all the time - so annoying.
I can't run at all - bad knees and ankles.
JUst came to see if there was a pee stick with FMU posted yet. Did you POAS this am Mary?
I did POAS this morning:
I'm pretty well speechless, lots of thoughts and emotions on that... Haven't had time to process it yet, LOL.
Same here with the bad ankles and knees. Well, one bad ankle (stupid me, got drunk one night in college and decided to wear flip-flops out in the rain... fell and probably fractured it, but never saw a doctor, lol). My knees have been terrible about dislocating (my patella) over the past 10 years now, do I do MUCH better with low impact stuff... I love the elliptical machine.
Natalie is also terrified of the self flushing toilets, I now cover the sensor with toilet paper while she goes to avoid it happening. She has no issues with the ones with handles at this point since she can tell the difference.
She also hates the hand dryers, we just avoid those.
Erica - Yay for your DH being back, I am sure you will get into a routine soon enough.
I'd start with the PTing at home, worry about the public stuff once you get that down.
Mary - I most definately see a line.
Katie - I think it's great that you are working on running with two young kids. I really need to get back into it.
Most of the blood tests were routine stuff, there is also a hormone test because of my periods being all over the place for most of last year (27-35 day cycles).
The hearing test is for ringing in my ear, and I truely think I may have some issues, I often misunderstand things being said especially if they sound similar, hearing in noisy places is more difficult than it use to be too.
When I started running my knees and ankles acted up BAD after just 2 weeks they were doing way better, I've been out of it since june so I am not sure how things have deteroraited since stopping.
Amanda - Sean is the opposite... He LOVES the hand dryers, haha... I have to stop him or he'll run around activating all of them if we're in a bathroom with several of them.
I hope all is well with your hearing. That's kinda stressful.
AFM - I have officially packed my first tote of stuff in preparation for getting out of this house. I still don't even necessarily have a definitive plan to move, but mentally I'm outta here, haha. I packed a 25-gal tote of movies and DH's PS games, and we still have some more to be packed up, grrr... TOO many movies and most of them probably have only been watched once. Grrr. We rarely ever buy movies anymore, though... Only stuff I know we'll watch more than once, like Harry Potter series (love it!). Anyway, it's only one tote and we still have a TON of stuff to get out of this house, but it's symbolic and feels good to be started. And it took my mind off of this positive pee stick for a minute......
Mary - eek I see a line! WTG packing that first tote, I bet that felt great!
Amanda - hope all the tests go well!
Katie - I'm not a runner, either. I go for long walks outside and I'll occasionally jog, too, but no running. I'd rather use my elliptical. I also time my workouts with nap time, though I'm not sure how that's all going to work once the baby is here. At least I know I can always workout at night once DH gets home, though.
Erica - oh how cool that you have a little zoo by you! Xander LOVES the zoo, especially the smaller ones. The bigger ones always seem to overwhelm him and he's more into running around than looking at the animals.
AFM - SO tired today! I didn't sleep very well last night... I think I might skip my workout for a nap in its place. haha. Though then I'll probably sleep bad again tonight because I took a nap. Vicious cycle. haha.
