    Default July Chat Thread

    Hey, I actually remembered to start a new thread rather than posting on the old one for the first 3 days of the month, hahaha. Happy July, everyone!

    To answer Karen's question from the June thread... We had Sean's birthday party yesterday (how is my baby 3 years old?). Friday evening, we had a terrible storm and lost power until Saturday night at 10pm. Thankfully, we were at my parents' house for Sean's party most of Saturday and they actually got their power back in the morning, shortly before we arrived. Anyway, we made the best of it and he had a good time. Got a ton of toys, lol... I need a second house for all these toys. Today we went to the IL's for a 4th of July party and got caught in another really bad storm during the drive home. I was getting a bit freaked out, but the little ones slept through it, hahah.. I fully expected to come home to another power outage, but thankfully, we still have power.

    Happy Birthday, Sean!

    Karen - good to hear from you.

    AFM: Just popping in during a rare free moment. This week is crazy, but fun crazy. I updated my chart. No strong feeling whether I'll get that BFP or not. Maybe leaning towards not. It's interesting timing because tomorrow my sister has her follow-up with her Ob (after the ectopic) and will be asking the loaded question "will I be able to have a baby". eek. Also, Raymond got bitten by a deer tick, so now we're in the wait to see if he got lyme disease. We're in a very high lyme area, but weren't in a place where there should have been many ticks. I'm so glad I checked. Hopefully I got it off early enough. (I got bitten, too, but almost definitely got it early enough). I guess it's supposed to be a really bad year for ticks. ugh.

    Yeah sorry about the June post. I couldn't remember what I was asking long enough to move over here

    I'm glad Sean still had a good party. We were without electric from 4pm Friday- 5pm Sunday. It did come on for a few hours during the night Friday so the food in the fridge/ freezer got cold again. That wind was the closest I ever want to get to a tornado. It was scary. Thankfully James got home from work when he did because me and the boys were in the pool and the storm gave very little warning!

    Sorry so many of you lost power!! Is it as hot by you as it is here?!

    Mary - glad Sean had a good birthday weekend! Ugh, the toys. THE TOYS! I loved the picture on FB of Sean with his cake and then you see little Cal's hand sneaking in there. lol

    Virginia - oh my! Sorry about the ticks! Yeah, I heard it was going to be a really bad year for them, too... Hopefully Raymond is okay!

    Karen - sounds scary!

    AFM - Hello second trimester!! Wahoo! I finally gained a pound. haha. Funny how I gained it on the first day of the second trimester (yesterday). Guess I made it through the entire first tri with no weight gain! Not too much going on. It's still SO hot with no end in sight. Ugh, worse summer ever to be pregnant!!

    After the big black out in 2001, Ontario really doesn't get power outtages for more than a day, some small areas do but for the most part we are only out for a couple of hours.

    We are melting here in Ontario, missed the Canada Day fireworks yesterday at Canada's Wonderland cause we had to get Natalie home, the heat just total wore her out making for one cranky 3 year old. Thankfully today is cooler, or at least it seems much cooler, and Natalie is back to her normal self.

    Virginia - Have you gotten any predictions from Raymond on if you are pregnant? He seems to like guessing those things. Sorry to hear about the tick, hope it's nothing, makes me glad where I live doesn't have too many biting/stinging bugs. ICK!

    Lauren - Congrats on 2nd trimester! How are you feeling? (other than hot)

    *AFM*

    Been busy here.

    Friday I went with my grandma to the hospital, she's getting a bunch of tests done, I'm hoping for the best but expecting the worst. That night Dana went off to Vancouver with my mom (her grandma).

    Saturday we went to a check out promanade, it's a street festival that is held here every year on Canada Day long weekend. Learned about some new local stores and attractions, so that was nice. Then went to DH's grandma's birthday at his uncles house, I love visiting his grandma she is so appreciative of such little things.

    Sunday (Canada Day) we took it easy in the morning and then headed to Canada's Wonderland, I would be lying if I said it was a good day, definitely had it's good moments, but Nat was miserable for the most part, probably cause of the heat, we headed home early and missed the fireworks. Once home DH and I got Nat in bed and just had a relaxing night.

    Today we got off work because of the holiday landing on a Sunday, we went back to Promonade to check out some of the shops from Saturday, and have mostly just taken things easy. At home Nat and I played in the back yard she climbed the rock and was so proud of herself.

    I'm a bit on the tired side, probably cause of all the walking around, but the extra long weekend has been mostly fun.

    Amanda - sounds like a fun weekend! No predictions from Raymond yet.

    AFM: I did a ton of research about ticks today. Good news is Raymond probably only has a 15% chance of Lyme disease and it's usually easily treated. We're supposed to watch him and bring him in at the first sign of any illness. Bad news is I think I have a 15% chance, too. Just what I need when I might be pregnant. ick.

    Virginia - sorry about the tick! What's scary is that deer tick nymphs are actually responsible for the majority of lyme cases and they are typically missed b/c they are the size of a poppy seed. I try hard not to be too paranoid b/c you can't put your kids in a bubble and I live in a high tick/lyme area (I mean deer walk through our yard) but it does occasionally freak me out. An adult removed quickly would worry me less than finding a nymph! And GL on the 2 WW! When will you test? Not that I'm excited for you or anything!!

    Mary - I can't believe Sean is 3! WILD! When did he get so big?! Glad you got through the storms!

    Lauren - you are amazing! I gain weight breathing when I'm pregnant! Sorry the weather is so HOT!

    Amanda - Hope you enjoyed Canada Day!

    Weird night last night. I thought Rory was off all day. DH definitely thought I was being paranoid or something. Then at bed time poor Rory threw up (all over our bed....twice, ugh). He finally went to sleep, draped across me (so I went to bed too) and ate a bunch in th enight with no issue. But was totally restless. Poor monkey. Finally got my bonus at work! WOOOOT! My VP did grab me and ask me if I'd be willing to consider coming back full time. I haven't discussed it with DH but I told him if the opportunity was right I'd think about it. I'm torn. It's a good chunk of change and I think I'm in a position to negotiate a bit - get a raise, get a day of work a week from home (kids would still need to be out of the house but it would be more flexible), I'd probably also buy vacation (we get 3 weeks, we can buy 2 more weeks). It would be a good time to set myself up. But it would give up my 2 days a week home. We'll see maybe the opportunity won't even surface. That being said this is only a 2 day week for me, WOOHOO

    Katie - I'll be testing Saturday. I won't get a chance until then.
    odds are these were nymphs (it nymph season, not adult season). They were a little larger than poppy seeds, but I think that's because they had eaten. Ewww. The other odd thing is my bite has a small local allergic reaction which means I've been bitten before and never noticed. That's creepy.
    But, yeah... the odds of lyme with a found deer tick nymph is apparently 15%, since only 20% are infected and some are found before they transmit. I'm hoping we're both lucky.

    Katie - you may gain easily during pregnancy, but you always lost your weight super fast! Mine hung around until I weaned, so I had 14 months of extra weight I had to carry... So I'd rather gain less this time around. heh. What a great opportunity at work! GL thinking it through with DH.

    Virginia - Sunday already? I can't believe it's almost been 2 weeks! So are you supposed to go see a doctor after x number of days to get tested for lyme disease?

    Amanda - Xander is a huge crank when he gets overheated too. Sorry you guys missed the fireworks. At least you got some time off, sounds like you guys had a good time (for the most part).

    AFM - I'm feeling good. I was super duper exhausted last week, but that has since gone away. Now just normal pregnancy exhaustion. haha. I can't wait to not feel drained all day! But I guess I still have a ways to go... Anyway, so I'm 90% sure I felt the baby moving last night! It definitely wasn't gas or something. Not much longer til I feel it regularly!
