Virginia - Yay! That line looks even better! :yahoo:
Amanda - You'll have to post a pic of Natalie in her dress. :)
Ashley - Ugh, I have no clue on names for either boy or girl. It's strange to me that I'm focusing so much on boy names. Not sure if it's just out of habit or intuition, I'll be anxious to find out, haha. It takes me forever to fall back asleep now too (hence it's 4:40am and I'm up posting, ughh... Tomorrow is going to be a long day).
Katie! You might TTC in April or May?! I thought you were saying not until like Fall?! HAH! I can't wait. :)
AFM - UGH. I woke up at 4am obsessing over a Rx from last night for a 3-day-old baby. The dad told me the mom nearly died in childbirth and had to have massive surgery and lost a lot of blood. The baby apparently lost blood too, and the rx was for an iron supplement. There was some question on the dosing because the dr wrote it for an archaic dosage form that no longer exists, and when I called her to change it to the current form, she adjusted the dosage and the dose was right, we calculated it together... But I couldn't figure out why she dosed it SO much higher with the new dose than with the old dose.. Here she had written the rx wrong to begin with, and it took me ALL night to rationalize it. I finally figured out what the mistake was.. She had originally written the dosage form as 12mg/ml (the old form), but jeez, that wasn't even the old form. It *actually* came as 12mg/0.6ml and I KNOW that's what she was thinking of when she wrote it, because 12mg/ml never existed. It doesn't seem like it could make a huge difference, but it does when talking about dosing a 3-day-old baby fractions of a milliliter. So anyway, it kept me up ALL NIGHT LONG, because the way she originally wrote it and what the dose ended up being, it looked like she nearly doubled the dose, when in actuality, it was only the difference of 2mg per day, which is not a big deal and was basically just from rounding. OMG. So I've been up since 4am and we have a wedding 2+ hours away today. Fun times. :(
Mary - I always lecture people when they get on the "I want to be a pharmacist that makes so much money for counting pills" rant. This is a great example. My most awful day at work still never consists of doing anything that directly impacts health, I remind myself of that when I want to freak out over things! I hope you have fun at the wedding and aren't too tired.
Yaaaa I'm thinking spring now LOL I don't want to be HUGELY pregnant for my sister's wedding in mid Sept and I do not want another Nov/Dec baby. 2 is enough in that span! So I want to wait until at least Feb due date. I'd really like a late spring/summer baby but so I might try and hold out but i will probably cave, I'm weak. I had a dream I had twin girls though and we were trying to figure out how the heck we were going to make everything work - daycare, cars, car seats it was rather stress inducing even as a dream! Then I had a dream I had to kill a guy it was really vivid and REALLY bizarre. I didn't know the guy and now I can't recall WHY I had to kill him but I did and it seemed rational in my dream but I was still really upset about it. All in all not the most restful night and of course Rory went 8-8 so I should have gotten great sleep! Figures!
Virginia - congrats! That's a lovely line. (:
Katie - talk about a stressful dream! I can't even imagine having twins, especially when you already have two at home! I'd freak. Haha
Mary - sorry about the lack of sleep, but I'm glad the dosage was okay.
Amanda - the dress and doll dress sound too cute! Can't wait to see pics.
AFM - yeah I did have a prob with bh's during my last preg, but that was early on, like 25-28 weeks. Then they stopped and I didn't really have any more. This time around I had some earlier, but not many. It's just been recently that I started getting a lot. Though today I haven't had too many...
I'll be term tomorrow! I can't believe I'm 37 weeks and it's almost time for me to have a baby! Aaaaaahhhhhh!!!
I've had a cough for two weeks now. This is getting rediculous! It just won't go away... I'm not sick otherwise, though. I definitely need to talk to my dr about it on Monday because I can't stand this anymore. And I want it gone before I have a baby. I'm not sure if my heartburn is causing it or what. It's just SO annoying!
I hate those coughs that have no purpose, they are just there. Can't believe you're so close to having your baby!
Mary- I must say I'm very curious to find out the gender of your bean. You & DH make the cutest boys though!
Virginia- There is def. no denying the BFP on either test. Congrats! Sending sticky vibes your way!!!
Katie- Are you shooting for a Dec. baby again?
Katie - It's funny, I told DH that story about work, and he was just happy that I was up worried about actual pharmaceutical stuff for once and not worried that some angry drug-seeker was going to come back and shoot me. I love my new store. No store is perfect, but my old store in the ghetto was pretty much the worst thing imaginable, haha. I can't believe I managed to do it for 3 years. The store before it was pretty ghetto too, and I spent 1.5 years there.
Boo for the crazy dream. I've been having a TON of them lately. The most recent memorable one was one where DH told me he was HIV+ :WTF: That one left me WAY stressed out, because then I was SURE I must have it too, and it left uncertainty as to whether the boys did also. So effing freaky. The twin dream was kinda fun though... Who knows, maybe it'll come true?!!?
Lauren - I hope the cough subsides. At least if it IS from the heartburn, it ought to be gone within a few weeks once you get that watermelon-sized baby out of your belly. :)
AFM - I slept until 10 this morning. I definitely needed the extra sleep after only about 4 hours and a loooong day yesterday. I still feel tired. But I hate sleeping so late... I feel like I wasted my day away, haha. DH found a plot of land available that he wanted to look at for us to possibly build on, but now he seems to be finding imperfections with it. He does that every time, and I understand being picky after the fiasco with this house, but it's just discouraging that it's so hard to find land that is exactly what we want...
Mary: Yikes! Sorry you lost sleep over it but I don't blame you, I probably would have too. I always lose sleep obsessing over things (yours being a lot more important than most of the things I get mentally blocked on). Good luck with the land!
Katie: eek, stressful dreams! I have some pretty wild dreams but rarely remember them. DH on the other hand remember minor details of his dreams. Sorry you didn't get to enjoy Rory's 12 hour stretch...that's just how it always goes, huh? :rolleyes:
Lauren: you definitely should talk to your doc about it. I had a cough once for 2 1/2 months and tore muscle in my rib cage from the force of coughing...let's just say one of the most miserable experiences ever. Not to mention I went to instacare for help (dumb!) and the doc there thought I had a blood clot after seeing my lab results (which ended up being due to my BCPs which she KNEW I was on) and made me go to the hospital at 11 at night for a scan of my circulatory system. Not fun. ANYWAY...coughing sucks! Hope your doc can give you something to suppress it! PS happy full term!! :woohoo:
DH took Brekke skiing today while Dane and I hung out in the lodge. It was in the teens temperature-wise, but DD still did pretty awesome despite the weather. Dane is still in a teething funk or something (it's been four or five days now) and I'm so ready for whatever is bugging him to take a hike because he is so clingy and whiny...it's like have DD be a baby again (lol).
Katie - Glad the 1 year old blood draw went well. Happy Birthday to Evan! :cake:
When we were planning for Natalie she was supposed to be a spring baby, didn't turn out that way she's smack dab in the middle of winter.
Virginia - Yay for a darker line! Keeping everything crossed for you.
Mary - After my trip to the pharmacy on Thursday, I felt really bad for some pharmacists and just thought others aren't cut out for the job.
There were 5 of them on staff at the store two were filling prescriptions the whole time the other 3 I saw working with customers, 2 of them did great, making sure people were getting the right informations.
The other gave a lady a bunch of perscriptions but spent 10 minutes letting her know that she'd need to come back in a few days for the stuff that was not in stock, the lady was understanding which is why it shouldn't have taken so long. In fact the assistant got annoyed and started packing up the drugs that were in stock so the customer could be checked out.
My perscription that I called in and said I would show up in 1 hour wasn't ready when I showed up late by 30 minutes, took them another 30 to get it ready. Though I can understand why with how busy they were, just would have been nice to know that when I was on the phone. I was polite about it since I saw how busy the place was, can't say the same for other customers around me in the store.
Sorry about my rambling on.
How did the wedding go?
Lauren - We need a pic of you at full term, really adore your belly it's so cute. Having a cough during pregnancy was never good with me, my girls loved sitting right on my kidneys.
Ashley - Can't believe Brekke is skiing already, though it's easier than skating and she's just a little bit younger than Natalie who did that.
Hope what ever is bothering Dane is over with soon, cranky kids can be no fun.
Had a mostly good weekend, not too much hockey for once.
Saturday we went to DH's works Christmas party for kids, it was alot of fun for Natalie but there wasn't much for Dana to do. They each got a gift from the company, Natalie got a colouring set which she LOVED! Dana was glad to get a gift but disappointed cause she got a purse and bracelet while the boys were getting headphones, I can understand the disappointment.
Yesterday we had DH's family over for our annual tree decorating. The actual event went well. Though my SIL caused even more trouble with wanting to celebrate Christmas on the 24th, DH's niece and nephew from his sister aren't available that day, their Dad is taking them to visit family of his long time girl friend. Anyway it's causing a lot of trouble, so I am just pissed.
Random: It's snowing!!!
Yesterday we had thunderstorms and a ton of rain. Welcome to Indiana.
I read stuff, but... the exhaustion has hit me like a sledgehammer. oof. I called the MW and, unfortunately, got a MW I adore, but not the one who told me she'd get me in right away. So, I have betas next week Monday and Wednesday. I was hoping to get them this week. My plan is to find out if the MW I wanted is in either day and, if so, call and talk to her. She said she'd get me an u/s as soon as my numbers hit 2000.
ETA: tests so far
Ashley - I saw some of your pictures from skiing, too cute! :)
Amanda - Ahh, typical day in the pharmacy, hahaha. Fun times... Not. ;) Sorry about the Dec. 24 fiasco, blaaah.
Virginia - Beautiful lines!!
AFM - Nothing too exciting. I left work at 3 today.. I get to leave at 3 once every other week because Saturday is a 9-hour day for us, so we just make another day 7 hours to average it out to 8. I came home and passed out on the couch for a while. I was just so tired all day that I had to struggle to hold my eyes open while driving home. It sucks because that happens more often than I'd like to admit. I'm truly scared I'm going to fall asleep sometimes. Yikes.
In happier news, I ordered us stockings with our names embroidered, and they arrived today. I got one with no name on it, I figured we could add the name later for baby #3. :)
ETA: The gender scans have started to roll in to my BB, and now I'm DYING. Mine is coming up on the 19th, but we're waiting until Christmas to look at the result. Ugh. And now I don't want to wait until Christmas. LOL, I know it'll be worth it to wait and it will make a special Christmas memory, but still. Come onnnn! I'm impatient.
