Mary - feel free to send that appetite my way. I could use it.
AFM: had hours of nightmares last night that I went to the NT scan and was told baby has Downs and then was devastated because DH and I previously agreed we'd terminate if that ever happened. It was so weird because I'm totally not actually worried about it happening (I know some people might think it's horrible, but we really did make that agreement). I guess it's better than vivid m/c nightmares. I haven't really had any of those this time, though.
Virginia - Ugh... Those dreams are terrible. I had a TON of nightmares early in this pregnancy. Pregnancy always gives me insane dreams, especially in the first half. I haven't had quite as many lately, probably because I never get into a deep enough sleep, hahaha. At least you have a plan for what you'd do in that situation. I've tried to think of it, and I honestly have absolutely no clue what I'd do. I really doubt I could go through with a termination unless the baby would not be viable after birth... But who knows what I'd really do if I were in the situation. Hopefully I won't ever have to make a decision like that. Being it's 99.9% certainly my last pregnancy and this bean seems to be healthy, that shouldn't be an issue for me.
AFM - Nothing too exciting. Just wanting to survive the next week. We're going to visit my family on Easter, so I'm excited about that. I always love watching my kiddos play with my cousins' kids. :)
ETA: Just looking at my updated ticker. My baby is closer to 4lb and has been head-down for quite a while now. Yes to the walking funny, though, haha. :)
Virginia - ugh that's miserable and I'm with Mary I don't know what we'd do. It would probably be a contentious situation as I think DH would be ok with anything and I'm not sure I would so ya....that's a topic we kind of stay away from unless we have to face it.
Mary - Mmm I'm jealous of you eating everything LOL I'd like to be able to eat everything right about now hahahaha
AFM - I leave tomorrow. My sister was in town today so she and my mom came over for dinner and my mom was being a bit of a grouch. I know the idea of us moving isn't making her happy. Sigh. I on the other hand really want it to work out. Work Friday was miserable and I know I have to get out....soooo fingers crossed!
Good luck Katie!!!!
Virginia - sorry about the nightmares. :(
Mary - you're getting so close!
AFM - my parents just left a bit ago. I'm surprised they still decided to come for the weekend since my mom has her surgery to remove the cancer tomorrow. I guess they probably just wanted to stay busy. Anyway, please keep my mom in your T&P's for her procedure! I'm sure she'll come out of it just fine, then she has a month or so to heal before they start radiation.
Lauren - I hope all goes well with your mom's surgery. KUP!!
Katie - Can't wait to hear how the interview went! Update when you can. :)
Virginia - How is the m/s treating you? I hope you're not too ill.
AFM - I finally upgraded my dumb phone to a smart phone. It'll probably be here tuesday. I held off for the longest time because I didn't want the higher bill, but I got weak, hahaha. I hope I like it. :)
Well I scheduled room service for breakfast this morning and now I'm too anxious to eat it. Naturally. I should have gone with a light toast and fruit bowl but I was STARVING last night when I put the order in and now I have a bunch of eggs I have no interest in. Sigh. Oh well not my bill ;) I have 2 hours before my interviews start and I'm feeling all sorts of itchy to get going....Thanks for listening to me about it all it's HARD when you can't really tell ANYONE in real life. My husband, sister and mom know and one friend from work who I trust completely. That is IT. And my mom is being weird so I can't talk to her! So you cyber ladies are it haha lucky you ;)
Virginia - I think that dress in blue would be great! I love the empire waist line, Mine for my BFF's wedding was. Just remember you might have to tailor a dress like that so add on at least $50 for that.
That is awful about the dream, thankfully it was just a dream. I had some STRANGE ones when I was pregnant with Natalie.
Ashley - I didn't work out and when I tracked my calories I could barely make what I needed. O.o I was trying to put on weight so that was a HUGE struggle.
Mary - Great sounding appointment. Wow can't believe you have to go to L&D (without privacy) for a check up.
I love my smart phone, what you get?
Lauren - Good luck with the transition from your bed to his own with Ben.
Hope your mom's treatment goes well.
Mary - Yay for being spoiled with the food!
Katie - Good luck with the interview.
Got a nasty cold, scratchy throat, runny nose... hoping it clears up quick.
Working today, it's quiet right now but I will have to start working on some stuff for an up coming convention.
Amanda - sorry you're sick. I hope it clears up quickly!
Mary - yay for a smartphone! I don't have one either, but I really have no reason for one right now. I'm at home and have an iPad and computer to use, and as for the phone part of it my cell phone just sits there all day not getting used 99% of the time, so why pay more?
Katie - ooooh I hope everything went well!! Can't wait to hear from you later.
AFM - I don't know a lot, but my sister texted me that my mom is out of surgery and everything went well. I'm supposed to call my mom tomorrow when she's not all groggy from the anesthesia, so I'll know more then.
Benjamin slept in his crib til 1 am last night! It took me an hour to get him down to sleep, but then he woke up 45 mins later when we put Xander to bed since Xander will not be quiet (argh), but luckily I got him down again pretty quickly. Then he slept from 7:30-1!!! I probably couldn't gotten him back into his crib after I fed him, but I was tired and lazy and brought him into bed with us instead. haha. My only real mini goal at this point is for him to sleep in his crib from 7-9:30 pm so I can have some time at night with no kids hanging all over me. hahaha. If he wakes up after that and wants in my bed, fine. I'll get into it more when he's 4 months old and I can start sleep training. Though maybe I'll be lucky and he'll fall into a good routine on his own and I won't have to do any training. *fingers crossed*
Fingers crossed for you Lauren! And I am glad your mom is out and doing ok. Thinking of her and your family!
AFM - What a LONG day. Got there at 8:40 had interviews from 9-2:30 straight back to back to back etc. Their whole shtick is that you shouldn't feel like you nailed it which I knew going it and certainly was the case. I didn't feel like anything was totally easy or that I am a definite by any stretch. I didn't feel totally out of my league though so that was good. I do think I relied on a few of the same scenarios and success stories over and over which may not be enough breadth of experience. If so then so be it. It was a good (if exhausting) experience and now I'm waiting for my red eye. I should hear in 1-2 weeks!
I'm glad it's all behind you and went well! It's probably going to be a long 1-2 weeks for you, eh? :D
