    Default December Chat Thread

    LOL... Every time I start one of these, I accidentally type chat "threat" and have to fix it. Anyway, happy December! Hopefully our little board will have a baby this month (Lauren!).

    Happy December! We had a lovely snowfall yesterday, decorated our (small, fake) tree, and baked gingerbread cookies. I'm trying to get all the 2ww distraction I can.

    Virginia: ROFL about finding a dance studio for Raymond! Hey at least he has interests! Good luck keeping yourself occupied in the 2ww, that is always tough! And you may have inspired me to make gingerbread cookies today.

    Mary: LOL you should leave it Chat Threat one of these times. I have a few words that I always mistype like that because my fingers and brain aren't working together. The word "though" being one of them, I also add a "t" to the end because it's automatic. I even did it when I just typed it. Anyway...

    We have my niece for half the day, so DD is getting to skip her nap so they can play. Could be ugly later especially since our kids were up until 10 last night (we had friends over and they were playing with their kids) but she slept in until 9:45(!) today so hopefully an early bedtime will even us out. My niece is 4 so her and Brekke have a blast playing together. Otherwise just trying to finish some Christmas decorating, at least what I have motivation to do. Dane is pulling all the ornaments off the tree that he can reach so I only did part of the tree where he can't reach and tried to go for a "stripe" look so it looked less weird....


    Can you tell my kids decorated the bottom? LOL. We currently have random toys and things in there too. Oh well!

    Virginia - Too funny that Raymond wants ballet lessons. He's going to be a little genius with his ballet and chess hobbies! Good luck distracting yourself with the 2ww... Not much longer now!

    Ashley - That's so funny... I do the exact same thing with "though" and "thought" hahaha. I have several words I do that with too. Your tree looks better than mine, hahaha. It's a pre-lit artificial, but we can't leave the lights plugged in because the kids keep trying to unplug it and plug it back in. We're afraid they're going to electrocute themselves. So no lights. There's a star on the top, some garland and a few bulbs on the top 1/3, haha. That's IT.

    AFM - SIL is coming in from Northern MI to visit. She'll be here sometime tomorrow, but I won't be home from work till 11pm, so I'll just see her long enough to say "good night" haha. She's spending the first night at our house, then Tuesday she's going to come with us to take the boys for pictures with Santa. I really have some other stuff that I need to get done that day, so I don't know how it's going to work. I need to get something to wear to a wedding this weekend... Seriously NOTHING fits me right. Especially nothing dressy. Blech. Oooh well.

    ETA: Mini-rant. I *hate* unsolicited advice. People on my March board who are pregnant were talking about what they need for their next baby. I commented that after EPing for two, I could probably use a new pump, but that mine might be fine if I got a new power cord. The cord fits a bit loosely now and causes the pump to restart if it gets moved and loses power for a second. I *think* a new cord could fix the problem, but my kids have tattered the bag that it goes in and it looks a bit rough and because of the power cord thing, it runs a bit rough now. So I might get a new one, I'm not sure yet. And she starts in about how I should switch to some other brand because they're hospital grade and that won't happen and blah, blah, blah. She has not EP'ed, and she certainly has not EP'ed twice, so I'm not sure how she thinks she's qualified to give me advice when I didn't ask for it, but it irritated me, lol. I already have a TON of the parts to fit the medela and I certainly don't want to replace all that stuff for one more child. Jeez. End prego hormonal rant.

    In happy news, I think I've been feeling the baby move more here lately. It's still light and subtle, but yay!

    Yay for movement, Mary! I was clearing stuff off my computer last night and found a couple videos of Oliver moving at 35 weeks... the ones where you can clearly see his leg outlined. So cool. I really miss it.

    So... temp jump today. I've been hungrier, sleepier, and grouchier than usual the last few days. And my cervix is high, super firm, and as closed as it ever gets.
    I'm surprised FF has me at 7dpo (O CD12). I had O pain CD13 and then some brief, random, pink spotting CD14, which is very rare for me at O.

    Sounds like good signs Virginia! Fingers crossed!!!

    AFM - Calvin just scared the CRAP out of me. DH left the room and I thought Calvin was with him. He had been BLASTING Christmas music and so it was impossible to hear much of anything. He came into the room to tell me something and he was like, "Where's Calvin??" Then we heard water running full blast upstairs. OMG, my prego butt has never bolted up those stairs so fast. I didn't know how long he was there and had visions of him drowned in the tub. OMG. Thankfully, he was just standing there beside the tub with his hands in the water. Can't take your eyes off of them for a second. Holy crap.

    Lauren - Natalie was so tiny I did disposables for the first 3 months, after that she fit in the one size bum genius so I got those, used them until she was potty trained.

    Virginia - Too cute that Raymond wants ballet lessons. I have two girls both interested in hockey, Dana is in her 8th season playing right now and Natalie really really wants to play, no gender stereotypes here. Good luck with getting pregnant, to me those "symptoms" sound promising.

    Ashley - The tree looks good, mine is always an odd looking mess since we let our kids as well as DH's nieces and nephews decorate it.

    Mary - Hope you have fun with SIL, maybe she'll shop with you for a dress, or even better watch the kids while you shop. Yay for feeling more movement. Kids can move fast, and get into trouble easily, glad Calvin was just causing trouble and not harmed in any way.

    Natalie was supposed to go to the bathroom last week and then get us when she was ready to get in PJ's, she does it alone every night no problem. DH went to check how she was doing and she had poured half a bottle of nail polish remover, which was on the top shelf of our bathroom cabinet, all over herself in an attempt to clean the polish off her nails. Thankfully she only ended up with it on her legs and hands.

    Happy December Everyone!

    As of tomorrow DH and I will have been together 16 years, wow how the time has passed!

    Another hockey weekend, filled with Dana's team SUCKING, Dana is pretty fed up with it.

    We also went to my parents for dinner last night, the girls decorated the tree, it was too funny Natalie found some christmas balls with smiling snowmen on them and said she was putting the cute christmas balls on the tree.

    Another cute thing Natalie did this weekend, the following conversation between her and I.

    Me: Are you beautiful
    Nat: Yes!
    Me: Are you smart?
    Nat: Yes!
    Me: Are you modest?
    Nat: No

    Mary: holy crap that is so scary! I've had a few panic moments like that and they are the worst. Our tree is pre-lit artificial too. Dane bothers with the bulbs but not the lights oddly enough so at least the lights are on. I usually do a huge bow on the top but don't feel like dealing with it this year. Woohoo for more movement. I can't wait for that!!

    Virginia: sounds promising for sure!

    Amanda: sorry about Dana's team. That's too funny what Natalie said

    Brekke is driving me nuts playing "pretend" games because she is so bossy LOL She is like "say this" "tell my baby that" makes me nuts. Anyway. She had a preschool Christmas performance this morning (sort of strange to do it in the middle of the day IMO) and it was so cute. She didn't know all the words to the songs but she knew all the hand actions haha

    I had a long discussion with the dermatologist yesterday. Tomorrow I get to take Oliver in for a skin biopsy to hopefully determine whether his weird "birthmark" in in fact a really weird birth mark or is actually an indication of a genetic disorder (not a terrible one, thankfully). I'm pretty nervous.

    Virginia - Good luck. Do you know how long it will take to get the results? KUP.. I hope it's nothing big.

    Ashley - How are you feeling these days? I see you're embarking on the 2nd trimester, woohoo! I've been doing a LOT better lately as far as nausea goes. I actually went a whole week with no nausea meds, but then yesterday I needed a zofran because I wasn't feeling well at all. I think I'm getting back pretty close to "normal" now though, thank goodness. Funny about Brekke bugging you with the pretend play. Sean keeps pretending he's cooking various foods for me and he'll bring me "plates" of food (toys piled on top of a frisbee) and make me pretend to eat them. He gets really persistent if I don't do it right away, hahaha.

    Amanda - Sorry about Dana's team sucking. Booo! I remember being on a losing softball team as a kid. It was nice as I got bigger and had better teams, though.

    AFM - We took the kids for Santa pics today. We had to see Santa twice because the first time, Sean death-gripped us and WOULD NOT do it. Calvin was somewhat cooperative, so we did get one of him. After that, we went to Macy's and I tried on some regular clothes and they were just hanging all ugly on me because of the belly. I guess I have more belly than I thought. But I got sooo lucky and DH and SIL found a maternity section upstairs (while I was trying regular clothes on) that I never knew they had. I've looked there before, but I either overlooked it or maybe it's new. I found a dress that fits, woohoo! We went back to Santa after that and there still wasn't a line, so we tried again and actually got a pic of Sean with a small smile on his face. We got one of him with Calvin then too, but Calvin was pouting/crying, hahha.

    Now I'm just waiting for DH to run out and grab me some dessert, hahaha. He says he'll do it before Rudolph comes on tv, which is at 8, but grr, he's taking forever. I could've just baked my own dessert by now. I have a sweet tooth.
