September Chat Thread
I see a lot of you posted in the August thread today, oops!
Katie, wow that does sound exhausting! Three days on your feet at 30 weeks does not sound like fun!
Mary, sorry about the crayon incident. Brodie ate some hot pink Play-doh last week, but luckily I didn't realize it til he came out. haha. He's usually sensitive to food, especially wheat, so I was surprised he didn't get sick!
Ash, sorry about the lack of sleep. Hope tonight goes better!
Karen, also sorry about the lack of sleep!
Laura, you have 9 months to prepare, you'll have it all worked out by then.
Oh geez, now I'm forgetting what everyone else wrote over the last few days...
AFM, been doing a mega cleanout of the basement so I can set up a playroom for Xander. I've decided I'm taking my living room back! haha. I'll let him keep like 3 or 4 toys up here for when I'm doing dishes, otherwise it's all going downstairs. He's become addicted to TV and I won't let him watch it all day, so he spends allllllllll day (when we're not outside) whining for me to put the TV on. And I won't. So he throws a tantrum. Ugh. But DH lets him watch TV all weekend, so he doesn't get it. If he's away from the TV then he doesn't think about it, so I'd rather his play room be TV free. It's coming along nicely! It'll probably take me another week or two to sort through boxes and organize, though. AT least junk day is coming up so we can get rid of tons of junk!!
Otherwise, AF just started today... That means in about TWO WEEKS I could be pregnant! Like holy wow, I can't believe it's time!!! YIPPIE!
Yay Lauren it's TTC month for us!! :yahoo: Yay for AF! I should be getting her in about 14 days and then I will be joining you!! :D
Katie - I hope you get some rest after that! That sounds terribly exhausting, and I'm not even pregnant! :lol:
Ash - Hope tonight is better for you! Lack of sleep is awful!
Karen - Lady, you need to go back to sleep when it's 4am! Yikes!!
Laura - Sooooo freakin' excited for you!!! :D You are gonna do GREAT!!
AFM - Busy, busy, busy!! I had a family shoot last night, a newborn shoot tonight, and then the wedding I'm shooting is on SUNDAY!! :eek: I, weirdly enough, am not stressing about it, though! Haha, I'm actually stressed that I'm NOT stressed! I feel a little too blase about it. :lol: But I think part of me feels that if I overthink it, I'll screw up. So I'm trying not to plan every single second of my day and just shoot the emotion I see, which will be plenty! :) So, here's to success! Hopefully I can pull it off!
Oh, and just to reiterate... I officially TTC in 2 WEEKS!! :woohoo: Which means, I will be adding a chart to my sig then. :D
Holy crap it is Sept! Moving fast!
Lauren - I'm jealous of the basement! I kind of wish Evan was a tiny bit more interested in TV.....I can leave it on all day if he sits at it for 5 minutes it's a lot. I sometimes put it on PBS or Disney for a little in the morning b/c a few songs catch his interest but he really could careless if it's on.....DH can't sit in the living room w/o the TV on though so it's on whenever he is home! Sometimes like today when I have a ton of work to do I selfishly wish he'd watch something LOL
Jen - GL at the wedding very cool!
And YAY TO TTC for both of you!! whoohoo POAS time coming soon I LOVE IT!
Hope everyone is doing okay! Just a brief update.
Darian started pre-school the other day, he stay calm the first day but now everyday he doesn't want to go to school, he says he wants to stay with me :confused:
Twins are doing good, I think they are going to walk very soon. Kaylie weights 20.5 pounds and 29" long and Brian weights 19.8 pounds and 29" long also. Kaylie says mom, dame wich means (give me) specially with food hehehe :rolleyes:
I can't believe they will be 11 months tomorrow! Time does flies!
I will try to post often!
Take Care all!
Oops, I accidentally posted in the august thread AGAIN. lol...
Just wanted to say hi and...
Grenet... I can't believe your LOs are almost 11 months already!!!
ETA: I just copied this from the other thread since I posted there by mistake...
Wow, I need a do-over for yesterday. Horrible day, for the most part. We took Peanut to an emergency vet bc ours couldn't get us in till 11am today. So they did xrays, and nothing was stuck in there, but they said they could see some MASSIVE diarrhea ahead. They said he was probably already dehydrated from all the vomiting, and would continue dehydrating when the diarrhea hit. If we brought him home, we'd have to do subQ fluids (didn't even know you could rehydrate subQ... seems like you'd have to do multiple injections to get enough fluid into them?)... So anyway, we opted to leave him there so they could do IV's and take care of the diarrhea. I had to leave straight from there. I was supposed to be at work at 2pm, but told my mgr that I'd be in by 4 when he had to leave. I left with plenty of time to be there by 4... But then my commute to work took almost TWO HOURS when I got stopped in traffic. I came up about 10-15 minutes after a fatal accident on the highway and they had the highway shut down. I eventually got past, and the accident looked horrific. This poor 62-yr-old woman's car was just flat. There was a big flat-bed truck up on its side. The stories I'm reading now said that traffic was stopped (rush hr) and she was sitting there in traffic and the flat-bed truck didn't stop and rear-ended her. Soooo scary. So anyway, I didn't get to work until probably 5:15. My poor mgr had to stay there and wait on me when he was supposed to be out at 4. I felt sooooooo bad. Ugh. I guess I'll just owe him one. I got home after work last night and Sean came to the door yelling "Peanut!" He thought I had the dog with me, and I didn't, of course... It was soooooo sad.
Got a call from the vet this morning that Peanut is doing well, but had profuse diarrhea last night and is still on IV, nothing by mouth. Her plan for the day is to stop the IV and start offering small amounts of water/food, and hopefully he can come home by the end of the day. We'll see...
Yaaaayyyyy! My BFF from high school (who I haven't seen in years, but keep up with on fb) sent me a message at midnight to say she's at the hospital and they're keeping her, but she's only 1cm. She didn't say why they were keeping her if she's only 1cm, so I'm not sure if something else is going on. At my hospital, they'd make you walk around for an hour and see if there was any progress, unless something else was going on. But... She is like 3 days past her EDD, so maybe they just decided to go for it since baby is well-baked already.. Either way, it's baby day, woohoo! Baby fever, whaaaaat??! ;)
ETA - She just messaged me back a couple minutes ago saying they started pitocin about 40 minutes ago. She said her BP was slightly elevated and she was having so much bleeding that they couldn't tell if her fluid was leaking, so they kept her, especially since she's already past due. Baby day! I'll bet her DH is a wreck... He lost his last wife in childbirth with his second son (who is a healthy pre-teen now). :eek:
Laura - Don't feel bad, I loved growing up with a sister so close in age, we were 18 months apart and I had a best friend in her for many years. That did change as we got older because our personalities are so different, but we still do have a strong bond.
Ashley - I know in Canada the infant/toddler passports are a minimal fee ($25), I know its still a hasstle but I like the security they bring.
Mary - Sadie gets ill at the drop of a hat, my vet can't find the source so we just have to deal with it when it crops up, I think she just has a really sensitive stomach. Hope peanut is feeling well soon.
Lauren - Glad you got Xander his on space, my house has been invaded by toddler toys. :eek:
Yay for the possibility of being pregnant in 2 weeks, keeping everything crossed for you.
Jen - Great to hear that you are feeling not so stressed about the photo shoots.
Yay for TTC, hope things go quick for you.
Greda - Good to hear an update, sounds like everyone is doing pretty well. How are you feeling taking care of 3 young kids?
DH got back from his work trip early, came home Friday night instead of Saturday morning. :D
Hockey season has started again, Dana's team had power skating all week and then practices in the evening, she's definatley rusty, going to have to work hard get her self back in game shape.
Normally Natalie's Montissori school keeps the children with their teachers but both of Natalie's teachers are moving on to something new so she is going to be getting a new teacher in the fall. When asked by the school corrdinator I requested one of the teachers Mrs C. because I really like her she is good and organized. The coordinator (who is an unorganized mess) told me that teacher would be upstair which has inconvenient access to washrooms so we both agreed it best to put he downstairs with another teacher Mrs B. I missed the orientation last week because DH was out of town so I didn't get any information, but on Friday when I picked Natalie up from thier summer came I find out that Mrs C. is on the main floor, now I'm wondering what is going on, I'm a little upset that I was told Mrs C. was going to be upstairs and is downstairs, I like all the teachers but Mrs C. is my favourite from my experiance with the school. The teachers and the school itself is excellent, but the coordinator is just horrible at her job, guess I'll see what's really going on on Wednesday.
I just fixed up the PAFG list, and just realized that only 1 baby in our group here left to be born this year, where has the time gone? :eek:
Anyway if there are any corrections or new info to add just post in that thread.
Jen and Lauren - Good luck! I can't wait to see some more BFPs.
Amanda - GL with the teacher issues
Mary - I hope peanut gets better quickly and your friend has a quick, easy labor!
Grenet - almost a year already? wow.
hi, everyone else!
AFM: vacation was great, but crazy with the 3 kids. I spent most of the week unable to imagine ever having more kids because it was so overwhelming. It's easier being home where things are babyproof. Whew. of course, seeing Laura's BFP makes me wish I could see one of my own, soon. :rolleyes: Maybe in a few years. Raymond's school starts in a couple days and Alex and I will be taking a class together this year, too! I can't believe it's getting to be fall again already.
Mary - just read Sean's 6m stats. That's my guess for where Oliver will be at his 4m appointment this week.
So... 2 close together isn't too bad. I felt like I missed out on Raymond from 12-14m because of the m/s, but it worked out fine. with 3 close together I feel like Alex really misses out. Raymond doesn't nap, so I get time with him while the others nap, and I get time with Oliver while the others play together, but I rarely get time with just Alex. Since I was also middle of 3 growing up I feel terrible about it. I'm glad I've got a class scheduled with him this fall. I think that's one of the main reasons I want to wait a bit for #4. I want to make sure I can devote enough 1 on 1 time to each kid and right now I'm not managing it.
