    Lauren - Yay for big kicks! When my girls did their kicks everyone got to see/feel. My sister nicknamed Natalie Ripley because of the movement (think the alien movies).

    Katie - Glad you enjoyed your vacation, going back to work does stink. Hope the job starts getting a bit better, I hate it when work sucks too. It would be so cool getting pics done with the whole family, including pets, hope you share some.

    Erica - Hope you can get Lily back into a potty routine, sometimes they slip up.

    *AFM*

    Natalie had several accidents in her pants this week, most of them have been happening at summer camp I think the summer staff at her school aren't as diligent about getting her to go on a regular basis and she's not comfortable asking.

    On the potty-training front, we are still chugging along. We've gone out the last two days for a few hours each time, with no accidents. The first day was grocery shopping and a trip to Target. Yesterday we went to buy a new potty (I hated the one we had... It had a foam seat cushion and I NEVER felt like it was clean and it disgusted me)... He does prefer to use a small potty when possible, so I got him one of the small, solid plastic baby bjorn ones. I was hesitant to get it, but I love it because it's so much easier to clean and he apparently loves it because he peed AND pooped in it within 20 minutes of having it home. We also survived a trip to old navy to buy them a few clothing items and.... drumroll.... a trip to a sit-down restaurant, with no accidents! Yay! If anything, he's a little overzealous and asks to go potty sometimes when he doesn't really have to, but I'd much prefer that over not telling us and waiting until it's too late. Today, we're going to the zoo, so it'll be our biggest trip yet. I'm going to be sure to take lots of extra clothes, undies, etc. Hahaha...

    I will share in potty training stories (we are an exciting bunch of wild mamas). Last night Evan pooped on the potty!! We had no accidents at home yesterday! We haven't ventured out w/o diaper yet and naps/bed time is still totally diapered. But I may send him to daycare tomorrow with extra shorts and undies.

    When you're out how do you take them to the potty? The thought icks me out LOL

    So, when Owen PT'd back in March, I was terrified to take him anywhere. I was freaked out by the thought of public restrooms, plus Owen was NOT a fan of "big" potties back then. I was also afraid he'd pee everywhere! I gained some confidence through a friend who told me to slap a pull-up on OVER his underwear when we went out. That way, he still felt the "wetness" of peeing, but you didn't have a crazy mess to clean up in public! Also, when I take Owen to public toilets, I pull his pants to his ankles and hold him under his armpits so that he's leaning over the toilet, and let him go. That way, (most) germs avoided!

    Yay! We survived a trip to the zoo in undies with NO accidents! He did great at telling us when he needed to go. As far as using public bathrooms, I do pretty much what Jen does... Pull his pants down around his ankles and sit him on the seat. I support him just a little under his armpits... Then LOTS of hand-washing (his favorite part).

    I think the public toilet thing freaks me out the most about toilet training.

    On the topic of public restrooms, he pooped in a toilet at a restaurant last night, woohoo!!!

    hey all. I'm going to jump in here. I'm not going to have a chance to catch up too much (thanks for the PMs though).

    First, it's Alex's birthday! 3 already. Wow.
    AFM: vacation went better than I expected. The MW upped my zofran to 4x a day and that has mostly done the trick. In the past week I gained back the 4lbs I lost the week before! But, I'm still terribly tired and if I miss my dose by even an hour the m/s peeks through again. So, still have symptoms, no bleeding. Thank goodness for the u/s or I'd suspect everything was going well. I have my follow-up Tuesday morning then we'll figure out the plan. It's gotten a little tougher since I started feeling better. I'll be 9w Tuesday, I don't want to have to go back to zero and start over again. I still feel pregnant, I'm starting to bulge a little, but in a week I likely won't be pregnant. It's a weird feeling. But, I'm still doing okay. I have to do some research on d&cs to find out what I'll likely be going through in a few days. eek.

    Virginia - big (((hugs))) for your appt on Tuesday! I'm glad the m/s is at least taken care of so you don't have to go through all that, too...

    Mary and Katie - glad PT'ing is going well!!!

    Amanda - sorry Natalie had some accidents. Hopefully the staff starts to ask her a little more frequently. I'm sure they'd rather take her potty than have to clean up.

    On the public potty thing... I bought Xander a travel potty seat - you can get them at Walmart or wherever - it collapses and fits in my purse. He'll let me hold him on the potty, but I like the seat since he avoids all the germs and stuff. haha.

    AFM - just got back from camping for the weekend! Xander did GREAT! He's never done so well at the campground before. He had a blast at the beach and at the parks and stuff. Plus the weather was gorgeous (for once). A good weekend!

    I look freakin' huge! I need to take my most recent belly pics off the camera... Maybe during nap time today. I feel like I got giant in the last week.
