Good luck tomorrow, Mary! I'm glad you have someone who can fit you in.
Ashley - I hope he doesn't keep you waiting much longer.
AFM: we can wait and watch and it it doesn't continue to improve he'll need some xrays. He just had xrays for his wrist a few months ago, so I want to avoid more if at all possible. He has improved a lot since yesterday, so hopefully it'll continue.
Virginia - Glad the knee is better. I hope it's even better tomorrow.
AFM - This situation with the tingling could drive me insane. Ugh. Today, my left hand has been much worse. Definitely worse than my right today, and it actually has pain associated with it. It was just tingling originally, not with pain. Ugh, I hate this. I did do some pictures of Sean and Nolan today (Calvin was napping). They're on fb, but I'll share a few here.
And one of Calvin sleeping:
oh wow, they look so alike! I can't wait to see one of all three of your boys. :)
GL with the doctor tomorrow. I hope s/he can help, or, better yet, reassure you that it's not neurological.
ugh, we've got a heatwave coming. I'm going to be useless.
Mary: good luck with the neurologist today!! *hugs* Such cute pics of your boys too :)
Virginia: send that heat our way! It's going to be in the 50's and 60's all week here :thumbsdown:
We literally sat through a monsoon last night at the soccer game but had a great time anyway. Sort of hoped all the craziness would bring on labor but it's getting pretty obvious this kid is comfy as can be. Most of the time, he is facing my left side with his body on my right and digs his heels into my left hip then up and down my stomach on that side. To say it doesn't feel good would be an understatement but I'm trying very hard to enjoy these last pregnancy moments ever.
Ashley - you can take the heat! I can't stand anything warmer than mid-70s right now and it's supposed to be mid-90s! ewww. Sorry your little guy seems so comfy. Feel free to send me all the long-3rd-trimester vibes you want. I'd love my 3rd tri to go well enough for baby and me to be able to reach the EDD (or even go past).
Is anyone else TTC soon? I'm going to get pretty darn lonely as soon as Ashley has her baby. I'll be the only pregnant one!
AFM: found another promising-looking place up for rent. I'm going to try to check it out and hopefully we'll hear from our landlord soon. I don't want to have to push him, but he needs to tell us whether we'll be moving or not!
Mary I'm so glad you are getting in and I hope they can make it stop so you can get back to feeling good and enjoying your boys.
Virginia - GL with the place I hope you don't have to move though
Ashley - 39 weeks sooo close! It is hard to enjoy being that pregnant
AFM I'd love to TTC lately LOL It's been on my mind ALL the time lately. I want a third baby. I'm just so torn on when. We both work, even with three kids in daycare based on our salaries it would be a major loss for one of us not to work. Taking 3 months off of work again would be really hard on work. I have a lot of responsibility now and I just can't decide when would be an OK time to have a baby. Not to mention the idea of adding a third to daycare is a total PITA. We could look at a nanny....blah it's all a bit crazy. But I am thinking maybe October and November JLIH (which is kind of TTC b/c I know my body too well) then Dec-April off b/c I would rather not have another kid Sep-Jan and then pick back up in May.....mind you I haven't returned to the doc since Rory was born....whhooopppsss And he is 18 months on the 2nd. He can talk in full little sentences he's getting so big....
I wish Oliver would use full sentences and he's 25 months. I say just go for TTC. Everything else will work itself out. ;)
Rory is my talker. Evan was not. I mean he wasn't behind but he was probably on the slower side of normal with talking. At 18 months he mostly repeated what we said and had a few little words. He was more a parrot. Rory talks non stop and can articulate all sorts of things. It's new and lovely b/c Rory has a temper, life is much better now that I know what the heck he wants! He was never happy as an infant. But it does make him seem so far away from baby-dom. Maybe October will happen right off the bat and I'll be planning my july baby....
On my phone, just wanted to say that the neurologist got me scheduled for a brain MRI and MR venogram tomorrow at 11am if my insurance will approve it by then. If not, they said we can do it Friday. I'm terrified because I feel like I already know what I'm going to hear. :( I guess it is better just to know, but I'm just so scared and depressed about it all. I should be enjoying three sweet little boys and my DH, not dealing with this. So sad. :(
Good luck, Mary. I'm glad you'll have some results soon. I'll be thinking of you.
ETA: Raymond is so sweet. I was reading one of those "your baby this week" things to him and when he heard that the baby is starting to be able to hear sounds he leaned down and told the baby "you need to stay in there. Don't come out until October 8th." Not sure why he chose the 8th, but that sounds perfect to me. He knows the baby might come early. He has seen photos of himself in NICU (at term, just for monitoring after a difficult delivery) and knows the baby might need some help like he did.
