September Chat Thread!

How is it September already???

Katie - Very exciting! It sounds like an offer is imminent!

Sean is still on the peanut thing, but had some sort of reaction again yesterday. It was like 7 hours after his peanut dose, though, so I'm blaming the lunch we ate at Panera. He did okay with his dose last night, which I was worried about, and so far today has gone okay. He's supposed to go Thursday for a dose increase, though, so I'm scared. They say these reactions are more common early on, so I'm just hoping we can get past them and get to a point where he can tolerate a larger amount of peanut.

AFM - Lyme appointment in 3 days... Not that I'm counting down or anything.

GL with both appointments, Mary!

Wow, September? Here's hoping I make it through the month with nothing going wrong. I'd like this baby to actually come in October.
All the kids have their first day of school tomorrow. Raymond starts kindergarten, Alex goes back to preschool, and Oliver starts preschool. Eek. I think the whole day will just be set aside to figure things out. It's going to be pretty crazy.

ETA: just found a height predictor and had some fun.
http://www.babycenter.com/child-height-predictor

Raymond: 6'2"
Alex: 6'0"
Oliver: 6'4" (yikes!)

kind of funny, because at birth Oliver was my shortest and Alex my longest.

Out of curiosity I found another which predicted Raymond as 6'4", Alex as 6'2" (didn't go below age 4). I'm looking forward to family photos in about 15 years with at least 5 men towering over short, little me. Wink

All the kids are at school. DH took the younger two and I walked Raymond in. It was a lot harder saying goodbye to Oliver, heading to his first day of preschool, than walking Raymond into his kindergarten classroom. I can't believe how grown up Raymond is. And that Oliver is big enough for school.

Raymond saying goodbye to his brothers......Oliver off to preschool.......Raymond at kindergarten
...........................

(can you believe how similar Raymond and Oliver look?)

Sad news... I know she rarely posts here anymore, but Pamela is on my fb and she just updated that she has been diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer. Wtf? So sad and angry for her. Sad

Virginia - adorable! Sean's first day of preschool was yesterday and he did great! No tears and his teacher was proud that he already knows how to write his name. :). Oh and holy crap you're going to have some tall boys!

ETA- AFM, I'm sitting in the waiting room at the Lyme doc's office. Please don't let this be a waste of time/money!! He's wearing jeans... I'm not judging, just saying... docs usually wear dress pants. Hell, I'm wearing dress pants. Lol! I really do not care... just surprised me.

Poor Pamela!

GL, Mary. I hope you get some answers!

Mary - I really hope the peanut thing works for Sean. Do you know if Calvin has an allergy?

Hope you find some answers at the Lyme doctor.

I have Pamela on FB too I really hope that the treatment goes incredibly well.

Virginia - Hope the boys first school day went well, did you get some nice relaxing time alone time?

Wonder how accurate those predictions are, if so Nat will be really short. This is what it said for Natalie "Your girl will likely be 5 ft. 1 in. at age 18."

*AFM*

Dana's first day of highschool was Tuesday, she has enjoyed her first two days, likes her teachers and has made some new friends. She loves the fact that she only has four courses to worry about.

Dropped off Natalie to her first day of JK today, she was in awe at the amount of kids in kindergarten but loved it, she entered the kindergarten yard (they are fenced off from the bigger kids) and started playing right away. When the bell rang she got in line then smiled at me and cheerfully said good bye. Can't wait until tonight to hear how her day went.

I am at work right now not much going on, just getting stuff ready for an up-coming convention.

I have been gluten free for 2 weeks and have see some improvement in my stomach and it's almost completely removed the foggy brain and fatigue. Mary have you considered gluten intolerance? My BIL is severely sensitive to gluten and got lots of really nasty side effects, far worse than anything I have had.

Amanda - I'm glad the gluten-free diet is helping you.
I think the predictions are probably pretty accurate. DH is 6'1", my baby brother is 6'2", and both grandfathers and DH's brother are 5'11" to 6'0". Oliver's might be wrong because they're still measuring him lying down which tends to overestimate. I'd guess he'll be closer to 6'2" than 6'4". And this baby sure feels long right now!

AFM: the first day of school wasn't perfect. Oliver has a temper and the school was a little surprised (not sure why because last year he threw tantrums every drop-off and pick-up for his brothers for a few weeks straight). He did a bit better today, thankfully, and he loves going. I hope he figures it out quickly and it helps his speech. He still barely talks (but can "read" books to himself from memory). We had bus issues, too, yesterday. Raymond didn't get off the bus until 45 minutes after school got out. I really hope they get faster.
34w tomorrow (or Sunday, depending on whose idea of my EDD you use). I need to start getting baby stuff out this weekend!

Mary - Hope your appointment went well...I'll be curious on your thoughts! Glad Sean is doing well

Virginia - the pics are adorable glad the boys did well, sorry about the temper though....I totally understand that! Both my boys have tempers they are triggered differently but phew they both have 'em

Amanda - Your girls are getting so big! Glad the GF is working!

Pam's diagnosis of breast cancer is just so sad I've been following on FB and it's so brutally unfair.

DH had lasik surgery today so he's recovering not that it's so bad he said really it's not. Tomorrow we go to NC but I still don't have an offer which is frustrating me. I feel like it's kind of silly to bring my whole family w/o an offer but apparently this is relatively normal. I'm not impressed but whatever. I don't get a vote LOL Here's to hoping my children don't do anything completely off the wall when we have breakfast with the senior VP and his family. I'd really prefer it not be one of those things that lives in infamy. I told the recruiter if they are still evaluating me as an employee I'd much rather come with OUT my kids...if they want me to evaluate the area I'd much rather do it WITH an offer. Oh well...time will tell!

Any news, Mary?

Good luck, Katie! Seems a weird decision on their part. I hope everything goes smoothly and the kids behave perfectly.

AFM: Thankfully, Oliver did a lot better at school Thursday and Friday. And Raymond's bus got him home 20 minutes earlier. Whew.
34 weeks. That was my main goal. Now I'd love to make it to 36 and then 38 and somewhere along the line get cleared for a vaginal delivery. But, at least at this point the baby's prognosis, if born now, is as good as for a full-term baby (after the NICU time, of course).
some pictures from yesterday:

just done with my camera's timer yesterday. I have to try to get DH to take some of me with all the boys (and Alex not sticking out his tongue). We'll see if it ever happens.

Virginia - Cute belly.

Just peeking in on my lunch break. Nat is on day 3 at school, and was happy to go.

Virginia - Love the belly! Glad school is getting better. I used to have a ridiculously long bus ride, probably 45 minutes if not longer... And I lived within walking distance of my school! I was glad when I hit high school and my parents finally let me walk.

Katie - Still no offer?! Good luck with taking the family down there.. I hope it goes well!

Amanda - I have considered trying gluten-free, but I haven't gotten around to it yet. I'm dealing with other dietary restrictions also... One of my antibiotics interacts with calcium, but I have to avoid dairy within a few hours of my doses and also, I felt like I might be on the verge of thrush yesterday due to all these antibiotics, so I'm trying to avoid foods like milk that might make me more prone to that. I'm also taking probiotics for that. So basically, I'm dairy-free right now with the exception of plain unsweetened yogurt. I've cut back a lot on wheat/gluten, but not entirely yet.

AFM - The appointment was okay. I don't know.. He was a little weird, but whatever. He changed into dress pants before I came back... LOL. Anyway, I was in there almost 3 hours from start to finish... Most of that time was spent actually talking to the doctor, so I at least got my money worth, haha. He gave me three antibiotics to take in high doses. I've started two of them so far (he told me to stagger the start of them each by a few days). One of them is plaquenil, which I'm not totally enthusiastic about taking, but if it helps, then so be it. I can't tell yet if they are helping. The first few days were rough, but that's how it was the last time I took antibiotics also... A few rough days, but then noticeable improvement. So I'm hoping that's what happens this time also. He ordered me a TON of lab tests for both Lyme and autoimmune disorders. I haven't gone for the blood draws yet. I was going to today, but didn't really want to go to the lab, so I didn't.. Maybe Thursday before work. Another one is an interesting urine test that I have to do at home and then mail off. Blah.

In other news, Sean and Calvin have a full-body rash and Sean has nasal symptoms also. He's going to miss a day of preschool already, and tomorrow is only one week since he started. Not entirely surprised, but jeez... Why are kids so damn infectious?? Bah!

Mary - I hope you and the kids feel better soon!

AFM: doing fine. My hips ache like crazy, but I'm really happy that things are going fine still.
I spilled the beans on the names we're considering over on October 2013, if anyone is curious. I'm stumped.

I've had a stressful week or so getting school started. Yesterday the bus failed to stop for Raymond in the morning and I had to spend a ton of time calling people to try to figure out why. It was also really late getting him home and I got to wait in the rain for 40 minutes. Ugh. Today went smoothly for all the kids (woohoo!) but when we got back from meeting Raymond at the bus there was water pouring through the kitchen ceiling! Thankfully, I was able to turn the water off and the plumber was able to come quickly and fix it. And we don't own the darn house. I am so, so glad I wasn't gone more than a few minutes when the leak started (old corroded pipe cracked) and that it was easy to access. I keep thinking of how bad it could have been if it had broken when we were away for a few days. Or even a few hours!

Mary - I saw you got your blood draw done today, hope they figure things out and get you on the path to recovery or treatment. Hope the boys feel better soon.

Virginia - That does sound like a tough week, hope the weekend is a million times better.

*AFM*

The girls are still enjoying school, so that is going well.

I'm pretty sure Dana has her first boyfriend even though she keeps saying they are just friends, they talk all the time. I told he as long as she is honest with, us, herself and him about things I don't have a problem with it.

My hip is still sore from when I pulled it in June, it's odd cause it will feel better for days and then flare up again, I'm not sure what is aggravating it since I've tried resting it, stretching it and using Advil on it at night (which seems to have the best results. Before I started running I used to get cramps in my calves at night on a regular basis it went away for quite a long time but that started up again this week and I haven't stopped running, wondering if this time it's related to the hip. I'm going to call my family doctors office see if I can get in and get a referral to a physiotherapist (hoping they let me pick the therapist, have one I really like) and see if I can get my hip sorted out.

PS Virginia
I looked at your name list, hope you don't mind them here.

My order would be Zachary, Theodore, Arthur.

Amanda - GL with Dana's boyfriend! That must be a huge step for a parent. Wow.

My order on the names keeps switching. I've told DH if he wants to just choose one of the three I'd be fine with it. 35w MW appointment today. Everything looks great. We get to check on the placenta next week and then talk with a doc and figure out a plan.

ETA a rant: I am so tired of the PTO at our school already. My kid is in kindergarten. I don't really feel like paying you dues so you can put on performing arts things with the older kids. Maybe ask me again in a few years. In the meantime, stop asking and especially stop making it seem mandatory when it isn't! Oh, and stop asking me to volunteer weekly in my kids' class or take on some huge fundraising or organizational task. Maybe you have worlds of time. I'm going to have 4 kids under 6. Only one of your volunteer opportunities looked remotely interesting and you scheduled that one for my due date. Sorry. Now stop trying to make me feel guilty.
I'd block their e-mails, but 1 or 2 of the approximately 30 I receive each week is actually worth reading. Ugh. And they should stop abusing mass e-mail lists. I really hate that.

Mary - saw the fb blood draws phew!! I hope you are feeling better! And get answers

Amanda - seems crazy your kids are getting so old! What we all have to look forward to!

Virginia - ugh what the check do working parents do?! Sounds crazy! GL with the name

As for me ... I got the job!! And accepted! It feels nuts now! We are trying to find a rental that will take the dogs to avoid living apart. One is promising, in a great area short commute a full acre the house itself is large but looks a bit run down though in a super nice area. Of course my sister's wedding next week delays my ability to go down in person a week. My husband is calling back again tomorrow as we don't want to give any approval info w/o confirmation the private owner is legit (rental scams are everywhere) I have a relocation realtor in the area I sent everything to as well for another opinion. If it worked out we would all pretty much go down together which is my goal. Life is crazy right now!!

Congratulations on the job Katie!!!! How exciting!

Mary - I'm glad you started on some antibiotics and are getting lots of tests done. I hope you get results quickly. How long will you be taking all these antibiotics? That's gotta be rough on your system, but definitely worth it. kup

Virginia - I love all the names! Something tells me you're just going to *know* when he is born. Sorry about the leaky pipe... We had a lot of plumbing issues in our house before we finally replaced all of the pipes with pvc, so I feel your pain. There's nothing worse than discovering new leaks and puddles!

AFM - busy busy busy! We're still trying to find a routine since starting school, but we're getting there. He's only a total crankypants when I wake him up about 50% of the time now. haha. I started him on a new high quality vitamin with veggies and probiotics in it, in addition to the normal stuff, so I hope that does something. He's seemed sooooo run down for awhile now, even before school started. We also switched him to a twin bed instead of a toddler because he was sweating SO much that his sheets/mattress pad/pj's would be soaked through every single morning! I think the crib mattress was just too hot for him. He hasn't be drenched since we switched him, so I'm hopeful that was the problem. But it's only been a few days... Yet in those few days he has seemed more chipper in the morning, but it could be coincidence. I'm hoping with those two things that I'll see an improvement.

Virginia - Hope you get the named narrowed down, guess having 3 options is better than having none. How annoying about the school harassing you.

Katie - Congrats on the job, hope you find a place for you, your family and the dogs.

*AFM*

First hockey thing of the season was last night for us, Dana had an evaluation skate, since she's in recreational hockey they assess all the girls and then balance the team.

We bought Natalie's equipment on Saturday, shes so tiny the shorts are HUGE on her we had to buy suspenders to hold them up. She is excited to start soon.

I cleaned Dana's gear up found out she needs a new neck guard and new pants, though I am going to see if we can just buy a shell for the pants, since gear for a 5' 6.5" person is expensive.

I had another previa check today and got some pretty good news. My previa has not clear yet. But it has moved 1cm in the past 3 weeks. It is now 1cm away at the closest and mostly 2+cm. I have one last check in 2 weeks at 38w. In the meantime, I met with an obstetrician. He has yet to go over the u/s and talk with the MFM specialist, but barring any surprises when he sees it, he is fine with me attempting a vaginal delivery (likely with an IV and possibly an epidural in place in case I hemorrhage and need an emergency c/s). I'll be talking more with him tomorrow about the plan, and we'll confirm it after the next u/s. My cervix is still 3.75cm, so nobody is particularly worried about labor any time soon. Heck, I may even go over. Wink
Baby is estimated at 5lb14oz and they gave us a cute 3-D picture of him resting his face on his arm.

Virginia - Sweet pic, and yay for possibly getting to have a vaginal delivery!!

Katie - Congrats! :woohoo: How long until you move??

Amanda - Can't wait to see pics of Natalie in hockey gear.. I'll bet that's cute!

Lauren - Sean has been tired since starting school too. It's our fault... We put him in a preschool an hour from home where we want to move. Plus he has to get up at 6am anyway to get his peanut dose and have his 2 hours of rest time afterwards before school starts. omg.

AFM - My nerves are shot... Constantly. Everyone has been sick. Sean had a dose increase on his peanut yesterday, and now I can't tell if his chest congestion is from his cold or from an allergic reaction. I had to call and check on him at preschool today when I was at work because I was a nervous disaster and couldn't focus.

And me... Well, still struggling with my nervous system.. ugh. Yes, I had 29 vials of blood drawn for various autoimmune and tick-borne illnesses, and also did a lyme test (igenex) that required me to collect a sample of my FMU for 3 days and mail it off. Just anxiously awaiting results, but it might be a few weeks before I hear anything.

Had Nolan's well-check today. His 4-mo appt, but I had to reschedule it, so he's really almost 5 months. He was 17lb 6oz and 26" long with a 16.5" head... little chunker! It's funny that he was my smallest baby at birth, but is probably about the same size as Sean (my biggest) at this age.

Tomorrow is Calvin's follow-up ortho appointment for his elbow... I hope it's his last... Each time, they talk as though maybe the next appointment will be the last, but then when we come back they find cause for concern. I really hope it doesn't cause long-term damage.

Sean is loving preschool. Smile He comes home singing cute little new songs and talks about his friends, Austin and Carson. Unless there happen to be two boys named Carson, I believe Carson is the grandson of one of my techs at work, so it's cute that they are buddies. I have no clue who Austin is.

I have been totally crazy busy but I have been checking in! I hope everyone is good, yay for a chunky baby Mary!

I finished my last day of work last week and then Saturday my sister got married which was beautiful. Monday I left for NC to find a place to live which I accomplished today and tomorrow I go home and we have two weeks give or take a few days to plan the actual logistics. Kind of mini miracle we found a nice home in a beautiful area willing to rent to us. There are some draw backs...no fence tiny kitchen and old carpets but overall for a year it will be fine. If our house can sell fast we'd love to build but one thing at a time. And let's be sure we are happy here first:) but hey at least the move seems to be coming together !

Yesterday Natalie's school had their open house, so we go to see the class and see what she was doing in JK. I am not impressed since Natalie is well above the material, probably closer to a SK level, and her teacher isn't willing to change things up for her. What really gets me is she's in a mixed class with both JK and SK students. They have a teacher and a teachers assistant in the class and the assistant sounds like she wants to help but unfortunately the teacher is in charge of the curriculum. I am going to give the teacher a call see if we can get her to give Natalie more advanced material if not I will take it to the Vice Principal.

We started in the class room, went to the book fair and then back to the class because Natalie wanted to. When we got in the room the second time there were quite a lot of parent/students in there and the teacher was on the computer, and the assistant was trying to help the parents out, that just upset me more with the teacher that time is for the parents to meet with teacher she shouldn't be on the computer for any reason.

She is friendly with the kids they have a good time in class but she really needs to figure out her priorities, assess kids get them learning at their level and when parents are around help them out and take care of their concerns. This school is one of the best in our city, only 1 bad teacher in 10 years with Dana and it was her grade 8 one, and yet somehow I got a teacher that doesn't seem to care in Natalie's first year.

Mary - Yay for a chunky baby! I hope Calvin's elbow is fine. My never had lasting damage (I broke it through a growth plate at age 7) although I did have frequent follow-ups for a while.

Katie - woohoo for finding a house!

Amanda - GL with the teacher. We had back-to-school, too. Raymond is way above what they're teaching at his school, as well. They're learning counting and letter sounds. He can add/subtract/even multiply some, and is reading. But, he seems happy. And he needs some social skills, so it should help with that.

AFM hanging out. I think this baby could easily be happy in there for another months.

Once we get to North Carolina we need to figure out something for Evan. Technically pre school is next year for him since he isn't four until December but he has been in daycare since right months old and I think he will be a handful without something part time. Rory can spend they year hanging home with the hubs.

Amanda I hope they can help you it sounds like she is a bright one!

Virginia - 37 weeks yayy! I hope you can keep him in a bit longer. Man your pregnancy felt fast!!

So it is my in between week coming up. A week off to pack and situate things we don't want to leave totally to the movers. Then 7th movers pack 8th they load 11th I fly back home 12th our 8 dogs 2 cats and 2 kids all ride down to NC! Feels crazy but good. I'm happy dh will have some time home and hey no winter. Now just hoping our house sells quickly!

Hello all! I love reading the updates about school for everyone. This is Sean's first year of preschool and he LOVES it. He has mentioned a few friends... Austin, Carson (my coworker's grandson, so that one is neat for me), and most recently he mentioned a little girl named Britt(?) that he rode the see-saw with, haha. It's so cute to see them learn new things.. he comes home singing cute little songs and stuff.

Katie - I can't believe you're moving so soon!! Will your DH work outside the home?

Virginia - Soooo close! It would be great if you get a natural birth after all this previa business. Smile

AFM - DH and I had a little getaway last night, kid-free, for our 5th wedding anniversary. It was nice to have a night not worrying about who needs diapers, who needs milk, etc. We had a spa day like we did on our honeymoon... 80-minute massages, a facial, mani/pedi... The whole thing took 5+ hours... Very relaxing. One of the massage therapists had a family emergency and couldn't come in... Thankfully, they were able to call in someone else... We just had to wait maybe 20 minutes and they let us sit in the sauna for that. It was nice. The spa was at the lodge where we stayed, and we ate at their restaurant too... Spent TWO hours eating dinner, lol... We normally eat as fast as we can and get out of there with the kids... But we had appetizers, dessert, pre-food salads, and probably too much wine, hahaha. It was good. Smile

Mary - That sounds wonderful!! Happy Anniversary!! The goal is to have DH be SAHD. He has some flexibility b/c he's a computer guy so he may do some contract work either for the company he currently works for in NY or for other companies as he pleases remotely on his own time but the goal of me taking this job is for him to basically be home. That might get screwed up if our house doesn't sell or something or he may want to go back to work but between the raise I got and the reduced cost of living it's feasible with a little effort for him to stay home, assuming our house sells in the 6 months we have mortgage coverage for. In an ideal world (ha like that ever works out perfectly...) DH would stay home do some contract work on the side to make a little extra for savings etc and next fall I'd get preg with #3 the last baby and he'd spend like 6 or so years home between the three kids working as he wants on contract stuff. but who knows. The idea of not having to get kids to daycare, deal with sick kids at daycare, pick them up etc is appealing. And there are some really excellent public school magnet options BUT there is no bus to them so it might be worth it to ensure we can do all of those things for the boys. I'm excited for DH to have some time home.

Speaking of that the house we're renting is like 1800 sq ft vs the 2500 sq ft house we live in now. We also have a basement (not finished but very clean/dry good for storage etc) and NONE in the rental. ACK. So we're thinking we might try to room the boys together and leave the 3rd bedroom as a spare/playroom/. We're going to have visitors so having a room people can sleep in would be good and in NY we have a family room & a living room so lots of toy space. In NC we'll have a smaller living room, no family room. So a play room upstairs would be good. I'm just wondering if I'm going to totally regret trying to get them to sleep together....Virginia do your kids share? How do you manage it?! I'm a little sad about losing space but it's a nice rental in a nice area and it's very affordable so once our house sells we'll have a lot of flexibility to save and buy or build exactly what we want. We are thinking if we're happy in the area we may build which would be exciting!

Mary - I'm glad preschool is going so well!

Katie - giving up space sounds hard. Yes, my boys are all in one room. It actually works really well. They rarely wake each other up, although they do often keep each other up at bedtime. Usually we put the older two down first and then add Oliver (who naps during the day) after they're asleep. Raymond and Alex have shared since Alex was 6m and it has mostly been easy. We don't have toys in their room. It's just for sleep.

Not having toys in there sounds smart! That is a good tip! I think we will try it.

I am off this week but actually not having a job off is so weird! So much of my job tends to come home with me it feels so strange to be unemployed for a week. I'm working on some house sell stuff mostly painting. I am feeling very excited about life with dh home, half the commute and nicer weather. My mom is being weird but there isn't much I can do there. My mom and I just have a strange relationship
I know she's sad about us moving and if she said that it would be fine instead she gets angry acting. Oh well we had a nice day with the in-laws
