Nidia, glad to hear that all is well!!
Alissa, I painted them a pretty purple color (Big Spender by Essie). I always stick with red, hot pink and purple for my toes...lol. I like them to be very cheerful.
I'm glad that the doctor didn't find anything serious with the cramping. I bet it was just growing pains. Don't you just love all the random crazy pains you get?! lol The bottom of my uterus has been so sore the past few days. Ouch! Baby Boy has been kick boxing in there and I think my uterus has had enough!
Jessica, Yay! So happy that you had a nice trip with your mom. I'm sure it was really nice to relax and spend some quality time with your mom. I agree that parents like to treat when they can and it makes them really happy.
When does your DH come home? I don't really like being home by myself for more than a day or two either. I miss my Hubby when he's gone but shhh...don't tell him that!
I have a recipe for healthy verde chili that I love. Not only is it healthy but it's so easy to make. It's not a crock pot recipe but it only takes about 30 minutes to make. I'll post the recipe on the recipe thread.
Lynn, Hi!! How are you? The nursery is coming along....slowly but surely.
AFM, Just been really busy around here. We've had birthday parties to attend and another b-day coming up this weekend. We've also had tons of contractors in and out of the house it seems. I have to take my car to the dealership and drop it off today. Ugh...sucks because I really need my suv this weekend. Hopefully the loaner they give me is an suv. I'm going to request one.
The nursery is coming along. The painting is done. The crib showed up yesterday and Hubby set it up and I LOVE it! Oh and the rug is here to. The mattress is supposed to show up today and tons of other baby stuff I ordered should start showing up soon. Though, the glider won't be here until after Christmas. Boo! I booked a newborn photographer so I'm pretty excited about that.
Hmmm....oh yeah, I have my 4d scan and glucose test tomorrow. Wish me luck!
Anyhoo, lots of exciting stuff happening. I have a feeling that it's just going to get busier from here on out!!
I hope everyone is well!!!
Here are some pics of the nursery. Not really much to look at yet.
Jina - very cute nursery so far! Love the rug! I read that chevrons are very "in" for nurseries right now. Good luck on your glucose test tomorrow! I so so so hope that you just pass the 1 hr and can be done with it. If by some tiny chance you don't pass it, we can exchange war stories.
You MUST post your 4d scan pictures asap!!!
Lynn - How are you feeling these days? Any m/s kicking in?
Jessica - I know what you mean! With T, I was barely even aware that the main point of the anatomy scan is to make sure that everything looks okay because it might not be; I was really just interested in finding out the sex and getting to see the baby. This time around I am much more aware that it is a lot more "serious" than just a gender scan. It will be great though. We'll get to see our babies, see that everything is developing exactly as it should, get to see our sweet babies, and finally find out what we're having. It's going to be great!
AFM - I am feeling a little foolish today. I totally went off on one of the bosses where I work yesterday. Turns out it was a misunderstanding (on my part) which is why I feel foolish, but I still maintain that if the situation was what I thought it was, I had every right to be upset (although I probably could have handled it better.) I swear, pregnancy hormones are making me really crazy this time around. I don't remember being this way with T. I was mad at DH over nothing (even I admit it was nothing) all freaking weekend, and then I come to work and start blowing my top at the bosses.
Luckily, this guy is very easy going, and I've worked here for 10+ years and have never freaked out like that, so they know it's not a pattern of behavior, just kind of blew a one time gasket. Hopefully one time. LOL
Alissa, as far as blowing your top, there's been quite a few times when my voice gets loud and I start waving my arms, but generally I walk away because I just wanna yell, I'm not *really* mad. Well I'm mad, but not to the point where I just go off. BUT, I have a couple times. And it irks me to NO END when people are like.. OMG you sure are pregnant!!
I wanna smack the $hit out of them and be like no..it's more like OMG I sure am RIGHT!
Okay.. it MIGHT have something to do with being pregnant...but ...that's my call. LOL
LOL about waving your arms. I said repeatedly "That SUCKS, Joe!!!!! It SUCKS!!!!!" LOL I was on a roll yesterday.
Alissa, I hope I pass it too. Ugh! It would really suck if I had to go on a special diet. I like eating healthy and I do 90% of the time so hopefully I'm good.
I love cheveron everything but I'm going to try really hard to not over do it! lol
Ugh. Crazy hormones! You get a free pass. No need to feel foolish. I'm sure they all know that you're very easy going normally. Plus, I'm sure the boss man has been through it all with his wife. LOL
Jessica, yay! your a/s is one day after Alissa's. I'm going to be stalking you both that week like crazy. What a fun week it's going to be espepecially with Thanksgiving!
Jina, I know! It is going to be such a fun and exciting week to find out what I'm having, find out what Jessica is having, and then we get to tell our families on Thanksgiving. I am really looking forward to it.
So what time is your 4d scan? *Can't wait!*
AFM - I'm feeling very sleepy today. T had to come wake me up at 7 because I kept hitting snooze on my alarm clock. Even now just sitting here my eyes feel all heavy like I could just lay my head down on my arms and take a loooong nap. LOL Other than that, not much is going on with me. I'm going to make myself go do half an hour on the treadmill in 2 minutes, I swear....
So.. I was gonna get on here and write about my day. But now I'm not going too because I'd take up 5 pages. Suffice it to say that I went OFF on my boss today (theoretically he's my boss because his position is over me, but I've known him for YEARS even when he wasn't my boss and he knows how to push my buttons just RIGHT) and I'm sick of work! I'm sick of the "men" that work there. Seriously, they were dumping crap everywhere and ...they were just gonna leave it! I was hot! I go in every friggin day and sweep and clean and organize and...they just dump $hit everywhere. UGHHHHHH. Anyway, *whew* okay...breathe.. I thought I felt baby while sitting at my desk...it was definitely a feeling that I could believe was baby, except it was up way too high. Like near the bottom of my boob and I don't think baby is quite that large yet. Someone said yet again, "You are sooo pregnant"...but it was our HR person, so I couldn't very well smack her and tell her what I think about people saying that. I'm so angry!! Wow!
Sorry you're having a rough day Jessica.
People can be so clueless sometimes.
In good news, I have convinced myself that I can feel the baby higher up than you would expect (like up closer to my ribs) because I have been feeling a TON of movement in that area lately. I have convinced myself that this is physically possible because the baby is kicking upwards and thus disturbing the stuff that is now sitting up there, which then bumps my skin from the inside. That's your diagnosis from Dr Alissa - baby is kicking your organs and you can feel them moving. Like pool balls hitting off each other. You're welcome.
Dr. Alissa, thank you for your report!! LOL It really felt like the "popcorn" everyone speaks of, but it was only once and it was high up, so...I sat there with a confused look on my face.. but then shook my head and moved on. I keep thinking I'm gonna feel something down low, near where the heartbeat is.
Alissa, did you make it to the gym? I've put away my treadmill...lol. It's sitting in the garage and I expect that I won't use it again until Baby boy is at least a few weeks old.
Jessica, happy 19 weeks!
AFM, My u/s was meh. I think I'm going to schedule another one in a few weeks. Baby boy was folded in half and was hugging his legs/feet to his face. So his face was covered by bunch of fingers and toes! We finally got a so so shot of half of his face and I'm sure I'm totally biased here but OMGosh, the cutest thing I've ever seen.
Here is a pic. You can see his knee touching his chin...lol.
Anyway, he's measuring spot on and the amniotic fluid level was good too. I'm also measuring 27 weeks so that good. BUT, he's breech so my OB wants to see me back in 3 weeks then I go every other week. Wow, I can't believe it's going to be D day soon. Eeek! I got the whooping cough vaccine yesterday and oh man my arm is soooo sore! It feels like I got tons of stiches or something and I can barely move it. It kept me up most of the night because I couldn't get comfortable. It's supposed to get better in a few days...I hope sooner!
I'm making cake pops today for MIL's B-day. I'm making 2 flavors so I think it's going to take all day to make them. I'd better get started soon.
I hope everyone is having a great day today!! Oh and it's FRIDAY!!
