    Was talking to my BFF yesterday and today.

    Long story short here, a several years back my BFF got burned severely and her relationship with her fiancee fell apart. About 2 years ago she met another man they got engaged and married this passed August. She started her TTC journey in January, and is not pregnant yet, I hope things happen quick for her and the pregnancy isn't too hard on her body (she has other medical issues not related to the burns).

    Amanda - Good luck to your friend. Glad she has found someone new!

    AFM - 31 weeks today, omg. I'm starting to get that panicked not-ready feeling. I hope it turns into nesting or something, hahaha. I've gained more weight this time than I did the other times, so I'm not loving that. Feeling like a whale at the moment. Oooh well, I suppose it's worth it. At least I know the little baby has plenty of fat stores for the milk, lol.

    Amanda: glad to hear your friend got a fresh start! Hopefully her TTC journey will be fast! My dog seemed to be in the puppy phase for the first three years we had him. I don't plan on ever buying another puppy, its way too much work (of course never say never).

    Mary: Pretty sad about the guy you work with. Hopefully them chemo wipes that nastiness out. I can't imagine being a guy and having to pee into a bag forever - I mean, us women are used to inconveniences and could probably be used to it quickly but guys are just so used to "whipping it out" wherever. I saw the post on your BB, hope thy are able to stall her labor and keep baby baking! We have a baby on our board who has been trying to come for a month now but they've managed to keep her in (she's 26 weeks today). I can't imagine not learning about twins until 20 weeks!! Shocker!

    Virginia: sorry you didn't get to the doc but yay for HB!

    I bought a $15 single serve blender and am going smoothie crazy. I have a big blender but it leaks and I never use it. This one is perfect because I can just mix and drink it straight from the mixer cup. Kind of like the magic Bullet on TV but cheap The kids have been begging me for "shakes" all morning...gotta love when you "trick" them into eating healthy. We're just doing fruit right now but I'm working on finding some that have veggies in them too. Anyway, we're having people over tonight so I better go clean a bit.

    Mary - your poor co-worker, I hope everything goes smoothly for him in the coming months. I can't believe you're 31 weeks already! Crazy!

    Amanda - I hated the puppy phase, too. Zuul destroyed many things in our house during those years...

    Ash - I love shakes, too, but haaaaaaaaate washing the dang blender! If it'd just come apart and clean itself I'd be happy.

    AFM - the pediatric dentist appt went about as bad as it possibly could. First of all, he freaked the H out. He had to sit over my lap and have his head on the dentists lap while I held his hands (gently, not like holding him down) and his just screamed while his eyes darted around frantically. I seriously thought he was going to pass out, I've never seen anything like it! I wish she would've just gassed him with that happy gas, but I guess they don't do that just to look. I dunno, in his case I think it's kind of necessary. Not that I WANT to gas my kid, but he just couldn't calm down. )c: Second, his teeth are BAD! Poor guy got my teeth. Genetically I just have bad teeth (from my dad) and he seems to have gotten it from me. I take awesome care of my teeth and always have, and I take awesome care of his teeth and he doesn't eat many sweets... But that just doesn't seem to matter for him. He's going to need 4-6 crowns on his molars (I guess they put crowns on for even small cavities with molars since they have to last them til they're 12) and he has some smaller cavities on other teeth. She also said he has an overbite and will need braces when he's older. And the worst part is they have to do it at a hospital and PUT HIM UNDER because he freaked out so bad and there's no way they'll be able to do it with just happy gas. So great, I get to put my 3 year old under. And he's going to wake up and just freak out with a numb mouth and be in pain. And we have to have it done hours away, so we have to stay at a hotel (with a baby!). This entire situation just sucks. So now instead of brushing his teeth twice a day, I'm brushing them three times a day (four if you count the fact that we have to brush them twice at night w/ two different tooth pastes) and I have to start flossing his teeth. And NO sugar for him. She said since he's prone to cavities he just can't have any. Not that he had a lot, but occasionally we'd bake cookies or something. Yeah, no more of that. She doesn't even want him eating his yogurt tube in the morning anymore... So I bought plain yogurt that I'm going to blend with unsweetened strawberries. We'll see how that goes. heh.

    Lauren - Uggghhh... Sorry he has to be put under and go through all that dental work. Calvin had to be put under for his arm thing, and I was a nervous wreck. Thankfully, it went okay. He slept pretty soundly for a few hours afterwards, but then he woke up with a huge appetite, ready to eat (they had withheld food/drinks for almost 24 hours by the time he got to eat). But it was fine in the end, I'm sure Xander will do okay. It still sucks and is worrisome. I really need to get Sean in to see a dentist just because he never has, but I dread it. He freaks out too. He freaks out for a little haircut, my god, I can't imagine them poking around in his mouth.

    Ashley - Glad to hear the girl on your BB has made it to 26 weeks. The odds get better day by day at that point. A girl on my Feb11 board had a friend who was pg with twin girls. They swore she'd never make it to 24 weeks, the docs thought she was going to lose her babies... They ended up hanging on that long and then actually a lot more than that. I love it when it works out okay in the end. Your smoothies sound good! I've been on a fresh pineapple kick. LOVE it. I know people try to use it to induce labor, but I'm not concerned about that. I ate a TON around 40 weeks with Sean when I was trying any and every trick in the book, and nothing worked, haha.

    AFM - Just working my weekend away, blaaah. Nothing much new or exciting.

    Mary: sorry about the boring work weekend...blah!

    Lauren: yikes, huge bummer that the appointment went to terribly and that his teeth are needing some work done. Yuck. And NO sweets?! Gotta be tough with a little kid even if he doesn't get them a whole ton. Also, I agree on hating cleaning the blender, which is why I got a single serve one; it has a lid with an opening so you actually drink it out of the blender bottle so then I'm only washing the one thing instead of a blender AND a cup I drank out of, so it doesn't seem like a big deal. My previous blender had the "smoothie tap" on the front and was the biggest PITA to clean.

    Warm weather here (is 45 warm?) and we're doing yard work. Yippee.

    Crappy day for me yesterday. I got up at 8am to get ready for work, and instantly felt like death. Massive nausea and diarrhea (tmi, haha).. WTF? Anyway, so I took some zofran because I thought I'd never make it through my work day. Got to work, and hoped it would improve over time. It got worse. I felt like death. Sat on a stool as much as I could. I tried to call my partner to cover for me (yeah, the one with bladder cancer who lives 50 minutes away.. I was desperate). He didn't return my call, which I didn't expect him to. So I tried to call our boss. He never answered, and he's sorta intimidating, so I didn't leave a voicemail. He must have seen the missed call, so he called back to the store and asked if someone tried to call him. I told him yes, that it was me, and I was at work dying and didn't know what to do. He gave me the name/number of another pharmacist to try (NO ONE else is close... this guy still was probably 45-60 minutes away). I tried him, but told him I fully understood if he couldn't and that the boss just wanted me to try everything before closing down a pharmacy. That's the crappy part of no longer working in the city... There were always a plethora of people really close who would jump at the chance for some overtime pay. I hadn't ever really been sick quite like this at work, though. I was getting dizzy to the point that my eyes were blurring. It was bad. So finally after talking to the boss and he told me to do what I needed to do, I decided to close the pharmacy at 5 instead of 6. I hated to do it, but I just physically could not take anymore. I called DH and asked him to make the hour drive with the boys to pick me up because I didn't feel safe to drive. So they came and picked me up and we went straight to the hospital. I laid on the fetal and contraction monitors for a few hours, and got some IV fluid and phenergan. That was my main reason for going. I had managed to hold in only maaaybe 8 ounces of fluid all day. It was like the most painful IV of my life, but I was thankful for it. I ended up there until sometime between 10:30-11pm. It was nice to just lay in the bed and doze in and out. The nurse told me one time she checked on me and I was out cold, haha. I was soooo worn down by that point. Ugh. Anyway, I have to work again tonight. I'm not feeling that profound nausea anymore. Was able to eat a banana and drink some apple juice, and I'm going to try some toast. Hopefully I can survive the work day this time, then thank goodness for the day off tomorrow. I have my appointment tomorrow and we're supposed to start scheduling my NST's. Turns out I got one early, haha. Speaking of which, the nurse kept commenting on how great the baby looked on the NST, which is great. Calvin was always a bit lethargic. But holy crap, this baby was SOOOO active yesterday... Like more active than he has ever been. I swear it just made my stomach feel worse because he was constantly kicking and rolling. But I'm glad he's doing okay. Oh, and they checked my cervix... Totally closed, woohoo!

    what crummy day, Mary! I'm glad baby looked good, though. I get days like that occasionally after the m/s "ends". it's never fun.

    Lauren - sorry about the teeth. Raymond just had a bunch of work done. He needed I think 6 fillings? maybe more. It was crazy. I think for us it was raisins (plus bad teeth, which run in my family but I missed). I hope everything goes okay and he adjusts to his new diet. That will be tough.

    hi, everyone else. I'm hanging in there. I've been feeling better for at least part of each day, but this afternoon hasn't been easy. I got slammed with nausea and fatigue right after lunch, put Oliver in bed, put on a movie for the other two, and took a nap. Ugh. And when it's sunny and warm, too. I have to take Raymond in to the kindergarten tomorrow for testing. I hope I'm doing okay for it.

    Mary - that sounds awful, I'm sorry you felt so crummy.

    Ash - horray for yard work!

    Virginia - I hope you feel okay tomorrow to take Raymond in.

    AFM - still feeling uneasy about all this dental work. You know when you just have a weird feeling in your gut about something? Yeah, it's that. Not necessarily because we have to knock him out - I get that, he seriously freaked out and I can understand how it's in his best interest to do it that way. I guess I just don't see why he needs CROWNS! Why not fillings?! For as bad as my teeth were as a kid (and are now) I only ever had fillings and all of my molars held up fine. She seems to think that omg if he doesn't have crowns his teeth will absolutely crumble before he's 12........ And she looked in his mouth for just a few minutes since he was screaming, so I guess I don't see how she would know for sure that that's what is necessary. I don't think she's trying to swindle us or anything, I guess I just don't want my kid having a mouth full of metal teeth (though I would never allow a front crown, thank God he doesn't need one). It's just that he's SO shy and I already worry about what he'll be like in school with other kids. He's so sensitive and I'm always afraid he's going to get picked on as it is... So now we're going to give him a bunch of metal teeth that a bunch of awful kids will make fun of him for? I'm not saying that that's what is going to happen, it just depends on what types of kids he's in school with I guess. *sigh* Being a parent seriously sucks sometimes! Worry worry worry...
