    Katie - Sounds like a pretty good day to me. I probably would've wanted to skip a dinner like that too, especially with the kiddos. I'm skipping our family thing tomorrow. It's an hour and a half away, and I am NOT up to traveling in the state I've been in the past several days. I've actually been really sad that I haven't felt like doing pictures. I have all these cute little hats and things to put on him for pictures, and I know that "newborn" look is going to be gone soon. I want to get on it, but I can barely get off the couch. I've never been in such bad emotional shape. Ugh. I think I would feel so much better if I had a good obvious cause for why I started having the tingling in my hands and feet, but since I don't, I'm convinced it's MS and I'm going to have to live with a horrid debilitating illness. Ugh. I just want to enjoy my babies. This sucks.

    In other really crappy news... Our washer broke a few days ago, so we haven't been able to do any laundry. DH and FIL fixed it today, and I kid you not, the freaking DISHWASHER broke immediately thereafter. I pump about 7 times a day and the baby eats at least that much... So imagine all those pump and bottle parts, and OMG. We ran our dishwasher at LEAST twice a day. Now we'll have to hand wash them all. OMG. DH ordered a part for it as well... Should be here Tuesday. I hope it works. I'd rather not buy new machines that will likely just stay with the house whenever we move.

    In other crazy news... A 15-yr-old girl who goes to the high school I went to was horribly beaten at school by another girl student yesterday. It was on her birthday. Everything is hearsay, but supposedly it was so bad that she was having seizures from having her head bashed into the floor. All of it over a boy. Crazy...

    Ugh Mary!! I know things like washers and dishwashers aren't huge deals in the grand scheme but really WTF? Why do they have to break right when you need them most? Total BS. I felt guilty b/c I know my family always likes to have the kids there and we hadn't all gone out as a family to this place for mother's day since we lost my gram in 2007 (it was her favorite place that we all took her to every year) so this was the first year everyone could handle the thought of going back. My mom said everyone had fun and missed us but understood. My gram would have loved my boys, her own boys were her favorites (my uncles are 11 months apart and of course she didn't ever say that but it was always the family joke than Jerry and John were her favorites) so I know she would have gotten a total kick out of my little men.

    I hope the neurologist gives you the all clear ASAP so you can relax a bit and take lots of baby pics! This girl has raging baby fever but I'm SO torn on when to TTC. I think I will definitely wait until after my sister's Sept wedding but from there.....Oct would = a July baby which would be awesome I'd be off July-Sept then DH might take off Sept-Dec since I work full time now. But we'd have more than a year of 3 kids in daycare. Financially we could do it.....if we waited a year though Evan would be in school.....but then they'd further apart. It's my last baby no doubt there so I'm torn.

    And all that being said I have no desire to be pregnant or deliver. Rory was a giant I felt like garbage and I had serious fears I had a prolapsed uterus. I didn't post about it but I had some serious paranoia b/c had discomfort and like pressure down there for weeks. I googled images that made me want to cry. So I have this deep potentially irrational fear that if I have another big baby (and my babies are like gargantuan big I mean Rory NEVER wore newborn in diapers or outfits they had to call pediatrics for size 1 diapers at the hospital....) I'll wind up all prolapsed. Ugh. I have never gone back to the doc post-Rory maybe I should go and tell him my insane fears....

    Happy Mother's Day!

    Mary - Logs of hugs for you today! Anxiety is horrible, especially when you think you're dying or seriously ill. Been there, done that. Not fun... I hope the meds kick in quickly and your dr can reassure you so that you can get back to enjoying your new sweet baby and the boys again.

    Katie - it probably wouldn't hurt to let your doctor know your concerns, just so you don't spend your entire pregnancy worrying about it. I would've skipped a dinner like that too. Xander is in bed at 7-7:30 and there's no way a 6pm dinner would fly.

    AFM - I can't believe the weekend is over! I don't feel like I accomplished anything, yet I had so much to do... I at least got my plants purchased and a bunch planted - then as I was digging around my DH got a weather alert on his phone saying we were now under a frost warning! WTF!? UGH! So I stopped planting and we brought what I hadn't planted inside. The rest has sheets over them... THey'd better survive or I'll be po'd. I spent so much time outside and I don't have time to spare these days!

    For the record, I always thought having a peanut allergy sucked. Yeah..... Nothing compared to a soy allergy! It's in everything! I've lost 4 pounds since finding out because there are SO many foods I can't eat. I basically have to make everything from scratch - my own bread, mayonnaise, salad dressing, etc. Baaaaah. And I still haven't finished deep cleaning my house. Last week was just too busy with Xander's procedure. Oh yeah, I haven't even posted on that yet.

    Everything went smoothly and he made it through the anesthesia and dental work just fine. I'll give a warning now for the rest - you know that he's fine and absolutely nothing bad happened, but the rest of this might be hard for some of you to read and I just want to put that out there - but I kind of need to get it off my chest.

    I went back with him while they put him to sleep and it was so horrendously heartbreaking, I just can't even describe. I held it together and held his hand and was actually the one to tell him to breath in and all that, because he kept trying to play with the mask (they'd given him a "kiddie cocktail" so he was basically acting drunk and silly at this point). But watching him go limp like that......... Not cool. I was actually okay when they told me to go, but then all these nurses started hugging me and telling me it was going to be okay and I just freakin' lost it and started bawling in front of an entire room of people. I wish they'd not ambushed me like that. I get that they care and that's nice, but I would've held it together had they not done that. I found out after the procedure that almost no one ever requests to go back with their kid at this point. That seems so strange to me, I guess I couldn't imagine NOT going back with him, even if it was hard. My dentist said in 35 years she's only had a few want to. I'd do it again, though. He wanted to hold my hand while we went back there and I wouldn't take that from him. So all went well and they said when he came out of it that he'd most likey freak out for a few minutes as most kids do (it's just the nature of coming out of anesthesia), but that they'd call me after that part. Well they couldn't calm him down and they were going to sedate him (this is after the procedure), but my dentist ran out and grabbed me and dragged me back there. I had no clue what was happening and then I heard him from across the floor screaming "MOOOOMMMMMYYY!!!" at the top of his lungs over and over again. He was in complete and total panic mode when I got there, trying to rip out his IV and thrashing around. They set him in my lap, I asked them to take out his IV, which they thankfully did, and he was calm within a minute and just cuddled in my arms for an hour or so. He was still loopy, obviously. It was the saddest thing I've ever seen. He was a little crazy for a few hours after that, laughing at everything and just acting, well, drunk. heh. We drove home and by the time we got home he was okay. He ate pretty much everything under the sun (that was soft anyway) and recovery was okay for the next few days. Now he's totally fine and loves his new shiny teeth. Geez. heh. I can also tell his mood and personality have changed a bit, which I'm thinking is because he's not in chronic pain anymore. Or maybe I'm reading too much into it. I don't know, but I hope that's the case.

    So I'm sorry to have unloaded that on you all, but I just kind of needed someone else to know. I haven't talked to my mom yet since she's starting radiation tomorrow.

    Lauren: I can't believe more parents don't go back with their kids! Irregardless of how it was for me, I would want to be there for my child until they wouldn't let me any longer. Strange. I'm glad things seem to have gone well and he is doing much better and is happy. Sorry about your frost warning, that's annoying! GL getting the deep cleaning done and I'm really still feeling for ya with the soy allergy because I see that warning on almost everything that is MAY contain soy.

    Katie: I can't blame you on being nervous to be pregnant/deliver again with that situation. Yikes. That would scare me too. I dated a kid back in the day named Rory so it'll always be a boy name to me too. I love it but obviously could NEVER use it personally

    Mary: I'm so sorry you are going through that *hugs* And YIKES to your dishwasher and clothes washer breaking...WTH! Not cool. Hopefully they'll both be quick/cheap fixes. I hate appliance issues.

    Had a nice Mother's Day. DH (well the kids) got me new running shoes which I need SOOOO badly so I'm looking forward to breaking those in soon. We spent the first half of the day running around seeing DH's family, then my mom came over in the afternoon so that was a lot easier. We're all still trying to get 100% healthy and the kids seem to be more grumpy/moody than usual. Today I'm working on backing up and clearing out all of my cameras (video & regular) so they can be ready to roll for the big day in a few weeks. Pretty nuts how fast that's coming

    Lauren - I'm so glad everything turned out okay with the dental work. The soy allergy must really suck.

    Mary - I've been thinking of you. I hope you get the anxiety under control soon. I know how nasty it can be. If you feel like taking pictures of your boys I would love to see them! You do such an amazing job.

    AFM: Mother's Day wasn't great. DH completely failed to let me sleep in (it's been months, it's all I really wanted Instead, he and Raymond had an argument yelling over me (one standing on each side) because Raymond had stepped in cat vomit and DH wanted him to take a bath. And somehow it ended with them both yelling at me. It got better from there, but I'm exhausted today.

    and a couple photos from last night (thought of you when I took these, Mary!)



    ETA: my big u/s is Friday but we're having the tech write it in a card and I probably won't have the news or pics to share until Monday.

    Lauren: I really can't believe most parents don't go back, that's kind of crazy to me. I can TOTALLY imagine Evan going nuts like that waking up alone in a weird place with strangers. I'm glad he's feeling better now! Blah to the soy, that sounds super hard!

    Mary: Hope you're doing ok!

    Ashley: YAY for new shoes.

    Virginia: Holy cute kiddos! Now I'm picturing a 4th little boy face in there...but you never know

    Nothing too exciting here....survived Monday!

    Mary - Hope you figure things out with what is happening to you. Crappy about the Washer and the Dishwasher, glad your hubby can fix them.

    Katie - I am sure if you get pregnant again you can let the doctor know your concerns, they could induce early, not that I support that but medical reasons are valid. DH's SIL delivered a nearly 12 lb baby, after a difficult and long labor.

    Lauren - Yeah it's frustrating when epmathetic people cause you to cry. Sorry to hear Xander had a meltdown at the dentists office at least it was coming off of the sedation, good to hear the surgery went well.

    Ashley - Glad your Mother's Day was good. How are you doing with packing for the hospital? Can't believe you are now considered full term.

    Virginia - Sorry your Mother's Day started out with a battle, glad things got better. The pics of the kids are cute.

    *AFM*

    I keep thinking I posted then find out later I didn't, yay me!

    My Mother's day was good, Natalie actually managed to keep her gift a secret, she gave me a keychain and bath salts, she made them at school. Dana headed over to the mall and got me some wrap around headphones for when I am running.

    I am soooooo glad that Natalie is done at this Montissori school in June, last week I found a used needle on the ground, then on Monday one of the signs was broken and on the ground (and it's a big sign), as of this morning it hasn't been moved. I will be reporting the school in June, don't have care for Natalie until then so I don't want to force the topic and deal with facility closures. The teachers are great, but the management is doing a horrible job on up-keep for the building, and it's an old building so it needs a lot of work.

    I need to get Natalie enrolled in summer care through another program, I know there are spots available so that's not an issue. My biggest issue is they want the money up front, and I just hate to put it on my credit card.

    Katie - I'd talk with the doctor about it. Hopefully s/he can help you get over the worry. I'd be worried too if I had gone through that.

    Mary - I hope you're starting to feel better.

    Amanda - I hope you find a new school quickly.

    AFM: hanging in there. I can't believe the u/s in just 2 days away. Wow. DH is super busy at work again. He really needs a break soon. It's getting insane. He's only sleeping 4-6 hours a night during the week.
    And, on top of that, one of our cats is sick. He's been peeing blood, which is really not good for a male cat. We've had him at the vet (got an antibiotic and another med) but beyond that we can either do a bunch of expensive tests and potentially surgery or just see if he pulls through on his own. We're taking the wait and see route, because as much as we love him, he is a cat. And his behavior is just fine even though it's been over a week since this started. Just more stress on top of everything else.

    Your cat may just need a change of diet. I know foods high in ash cause male cats to get UTI's.
