June Chat Thread
It's my baby month officially!! :woohoo:
Katie: I'm having a June baby and am leaving town at the end of June AND the 4th of July. I've traveled at 3 weeks with both others no problem. I just try to wear them as much as possible to keep people away ;) Sorry the baby bug is hitting you so hard!
Mary: :bigarmhug: :bigarmhug: :bigarmhug:
Virginia: No luck with DTD either but we'll keep trying ;) It's just so much work at this point (LOL) buuuuut I keep reminding DH that we'll have to take the next month and a half off so we're going to do it dang it! He knows I have other motives too of course... It's never worked for me in the past in getting labor going but that doesn't stop me.
Happy June girls. Still nothing going on labor wise over here, my body just loves to hang onto these babies I guess! I'm thinking the kids and I will plant a few flowers and plants today since the weather is supposed to be nice and DH is stuck at work all day.
YAY BABY MONTH!! You will have a new baby this month! CRAZY! Really on the travel? That's cool...I'm not sure a week at the beach a month PP is my dream but you're right it could probably work. We rent a house, what's the big deal? Even if I stay back sometimes and DH take E&R to the beach...it could work :) You are all better wives than I am at the end I was giant and miserable and DH got NONE LOL
I wish my fertile time in Sept wasn't the week before my sister's wedding putting her wedding smack in the middle of the 2WW. BAH! LOL If I got preg in August and was....about 9 weeks preg at my sister's wedding...I think my dress would fit...right? :)
Katie - Your dress would probably fit, but 9 weeks is where I'm usually at the worst of my nausea!!
Ashley - Can't believe you're 2 days from EDD! Come on out, little one! good luck with the traveling!
AFM - hoping for some news tomorrow. good news preferably, but with the way i feel, it's pretty impossible to be optimistic.
Oh Mary I keep hoping you'll post that things have totally turned around and you're feeling so much better :( If the scans all come back normal do you start looking for other causes because I agree...it sounds like something beyond anxiety. Good luck I'm still hoping you can find some treatable cause.
Hm I tend to forget about m/s b/c I have never had much....I didn't throw up once with E and maybe once with Rory.
Rory did decide to remind me how fun babies are though. He was up at 10:30, 1:30 and 3:30 last night. (He sleeps 8-6/7 with out fail and has for the last 6-8 months). He's cutting his eye teeth which I remember from Evan were brutal. I finally tylenol'd him up and let him cry b/c he was crying whether I held him or not. He did sleep until 8 though and took a good nap today so maybe he's feeling better now. It was just a little reminder of all the fun a newborn is....
I found a little motivation and applied to 2 home based (with travel of course) jobs today. Not sure either will have any real chances but at least I'm trying....
Katie: awe poor Rory :( (and you!) My 2 haven't handled teeth well either. I'm dreading Dane's 2 year molars that should be coming around soon. I think a wedding in the middle of your 2ww would be perfect because you'd be occupied for a few days of it, but that's just me!
Mary: sending all the positive thoughts I can towards good news today for you! :vibes:
I have an OB appt tomorrow morning and we'll set an induction date so I'll have an official end date in sight! I'd still love for this kid to come on his own, but at the same time, I'm so ready for him to be out too. I feel surprisingly good and everything, but just feel like my life has been in limbo the last couple weeks waiting to see what happens... Ended up spending all day Saturday planing flowers and doing yardwork and have a little leftover to finish today (couple plants didn't get put in the ground, was too tired yesterday to go roast in the sun again!). Might make some cookies or something too...just trying to make the day go by quickly!
good luck, Mary. I'm hoping you get good news today.
Ashley - I hope you're making real progress and don't need an induction date.
Katie - I was 8w pregnant (with Oliver) at my sister's September wedding (yes, with hyperemesis and, thankfully, zofran). The dress fit fine. I found someone who could do fitting the week before the wedding just in case. September isn't too busy so it was pretty easy to put off the alterations and still find someone.
I agree that the wedding should help a 2ww pass!
AFM: hanging in there. I'm enjoying every day.
I do think I felt a kick to my cervix the other day. Not sure how that would be possible because there's no way the placenta could have moved so quickly.
Ashley - Hope baby comes on his own soon, if not I hope your labor is nice and easy for being induced.
Virginia - Did you have a good time at the wedding?
Mary - Did they do any hormone tests, maybe that's what's causing all your trouble. Hope things are sorted out soon.
Katie - Hope you can figure things out, I was not good at waiting, and I don't think I could be at TTC. Do these people leaving jobs leave room for you to advance and is it worth taking? That can be a positive spin.
The dog MIL is getting now I am pretty sure is from a backyard breeder, don't get me going on that.
Did my 5K run for Dystonia, my cousin and Dana (DD1) came in 3rd in their categroies. Everyone had a good run. Unfortunately my pulled hip got irritated by the run, I'll have to go easy for a while, bit of a challange with a 4 year old.
I am in the office today the computers are being a royal pain, and since I am the most knowledgable, I have to deal with them. Yet I am still very limited in what I can do cause I am far from an expert.
I'd love to go home early and just sleep today.
Ashley - Waiting patiently for your LO to arrive!!
Virginia - Glad you're able to enjoy the pregnancy despite the concerns. I hope it continues to go well.
Katie - Good luck with the job search! And yeah, teething sucks. I still don't think Calvin has his 2-yr molars. I need to check again.
AFM - I called the doc around noon to see if the results of my neuro tests were in. The woman who answered the phone told me she just got them and was getting ready to put them on the doc's desk, and that he should get back to me today or tomorrow. Ugh... The nerve-wrecking wait continues and this headache is killing me... :( I have so many worries about the health situation. I *NEED* to be healthy for the boys, ya know? I've always been healthy, and to just feel like it has been ripped from me is just the worst. I woke up with blurred vision in my left eye this morning again. It comes and goes. I just cried in DH's arms. :'(
In other news, we took the boys to the allergist today. It was Calvin's first time. He tested only mildly allergic to milk and egg. She said since he already does milk and doesn't have problems with it, we can continue it... Thank goodness! She said his egg allergy appears mild enough that he could still eat it baked into things, like cakes or whatever. She wants us to get him blood tested to get a more precise idea of how allergic he is, then we'll schedule an oral challenge in the office. We'll bring a baked good with egg in it to the office and they'll feed him small amounts of it and observe to see if he tolerates it well. He tested negative for peanut/tree nut allergy, but I really doubt he has ever been exposed, because we avoid it for Sean. The allergist seemed confident that if he were going to test allergic to nuts, it would show up by now, so she doesn't think he's going to have problems with it. But since I have concerns about it, we'll do an in-office oral challenge with him on those too.
I'm scared, because she said Sean's numbers for his peanut and egg allergy are still quite high. :( I asked about the "peanut free" tables and such at school, and she said she does recommend it for him, at least for now. She said usually by 1st or 2nd grade, they're able to understand the need to be careful with their foods enough that they can sit with the other kids. I just hate the thought of separating him. He's also testing allergic to tree pollen and mold now. I figured he had acquired some environmental ones because he has been sneezy and itchy acting this Spring. Blah.
Poor Sean. I'm glad Cal's allergies are more mild.
I'll be thinking of you, Mary. I hope the doctor gets back to you soon.
Tests came back normal, omg!!!!! Doc will continue to monitor me, but said the tests looked perfect and he can't see anything horribly wrong.
