She def has her hands full with that little baby. She seems tired. Poor friend. What can I give to her to show my appreciation? A spa day gift card with a babysitting coupon from me? I know she can't use it right away because the baby is still nursing almost exclusively...she takes a bottle every now and then. Any other ideas?
    the spa idea would be awesome.....having a newborn is definitely exhausting.....I hope you find something to show her your appreciation, I'm sure she already knows how much you appreciate her!

    Well, today wasn't quite what I expected... Yesterday after lunch I got this excruciating pain in my upper abdomen. It's happened before. It usually lasts a couple hours then goes away. Yesterday was different... It just kept hurting and hurting so I went to the doctor. Next thing I know, he was sending me to the hospital to have my gallbladder removed. So, here I am. They'll remove my gallbladder tomorrow. Not exactly the way I hoped to start the school year.

    Um...WOW Amy! That's not good. How long are you going to be out for?

    Leslie-My Belly band was my BFF when I was preggo. I think I bought a black and a white one, but I returned the white one and got a second black one.

    I've had a very busy week or so. DD started daycare this week. She's not a fan. We were originally trying full days 2-3 days a week. But we may have to go to half days if she doesn't stop crying.
    Last weekend I had a wedding. In Vermont. We were so worried about the roads, but they really weren't too bad. I, however, could have been in better condition. AF was late and I thought I might be PG. I took 2 tests before I left and they were negative. The ceremony was at the top of a mountain (elevation 4000), and on the way down on the tram, I nearly passes out. So now I REALLY thought I was PG. But finally, 2 more negative tests later AF showed up Monday morning. I'm guess the elevation, dehydration, not eating etc, just got to my during the wedding.
    DH and I have decided to put an addition on the house instead of moving. The architect was at the house last night and the plans look good, but we have some more changes before we're ready. I'm finally getting a master BR that can fit my furniture and a second bath with a Walk In Closet!!!!
    Lastly, my Aunt in Ireland needed a liver transplant and a matching liver became available on Monday. She had the surgery and is doing well!

    Amy- I'm sorry to hear about your gallbladder surgery. I hope you are recovering well today. Take care and feel better!

    Lesli-Hope your DH made it home ok.

    Deirdre-That's exciting that you guys are doing an addition to your house. I worked on a lot of additions in Chicago, they are fun but challenging. It will be fun to see your existing house transform into something new. Sorry you got a BFN, not sure if were hoping for a BFP or not...but BFN's are never fun. I'm glad that your aunt is doing well. That's so awesome that she got a transplant.

    AFM-Failed my test. Bummer. DF passed his, so I pretended to be happy for him, but I'm half jealous inside. I have to wait 6 more months to retake it. I'm going to start studying for a different one soon. I'm not as upset that I failed it as much as I am upset for having to pay for it again. They are $210 and there are 7 of them. Blek.

    Thanks for the advice about what to give my friend that's throwing the shower. I thought about a cleaning service, but she pays her mom to clean and take care of the baby 2 days a week and I didn't want to step on any boundaries there. I'm starting to think food might be a good option, because her boss just bought her a mani/pedi session. But the spa still might work bc I was planning to include a massage. This same friend had a pregnancy scare this week. She was having weird pains and her doc told her to take a HPT before coming in. Well she took one and got a faint positive. But then took 2 digitals and both were negative. I guess having a 11 week old is one instance where you are happy to get a BFN.

    Got my engagements today. Here's the link if you are interested. My hair looks kind of bad in some of them...but oh well.

    he is still there, will be until end of next week

    that would be so hard to have not pass a test that your DF did, I can totally understand how you are feeling! Ugh, I would feel the same way about having to pay for it again too!

    the digitals aren't as accurate in detecting pg especially early on....so she may still be pg....has she been to the doctor yet? yeah def one instance where a bfn would be welcome!

    and.....your engagements are GREAT! So cute!
