Thanks girls! MA, I love the house! But HA makes a good point, can't be too careful. There has actually just been a situation on another thread where apparently a member has been either lying about or exaggerating a serious illness for weeks now... Weve all been praying and thinking about this person and now there is question over who the person really is... A lot of girls had shared a lot of personal info with her, etc. it's terrible that we have to worry about that kind of thing but definitely take care everyone!
Ma, I am sorry I did not get to see the house (the link is gone). But I am so excited for you and sooooooo envious!! Good luck with the photo shoot. Can't wait to see the shots!!
Speaking of, shots of a different kind, Jules, Jo never so much as ran a fever. It is SO much harder in us. And CJ makes a good point. At this age they don't know what's happening so it's over before they even register it. I found some baby ibuprofen, couldn't find baby Advil. They have it in the baby medication isle and t's good to have on hand. It was a life saver for teething. Love the picture of you and gabby!! She looks so much like you!!!!
Angela, how ya doing today??
Ma, one more thing... One of the cruelest twists of life is the male female weight loss cycle. We're the ones who stress about it and yet we are the ones who struggle with it the most ( weight loss). My DH can just think about a sit up and have a flat stomach while I can do 1,000 crunches a night and still have a pooch. What the heck!! Hang in there girlie! You are doing a great job of eating healthy and exercising when u can. That's all anyone can ask.
Steph, wow crazy work story!!!! Sorry about the breast pump. Did you explode??? Good luck with the party, Easter, and the house hunt. Glad family is comming to give you a hand.
Happy Auntie!! Hi! You make an excellent point about posting links and pictures. It occurred to me a couple of days ago that I posted a naked picture of my daughter. Am I a bad mom?? It was done in all innocence but there are crazy people out there. I am not on face book but some day I will have to be to monitor Jo. Don't want some 40yr old pervert stalking my daughter. So scary the world we live in. Sorry about the other thread. You are right a lot of us post really personal information assuming this is a safe place to vent out frustration, talk about our fears and sadness. Sometimes it's the only place you can say certain things knowing these women will understand when no one else will. So sad.
Svet!!!! There you are!!! Missed you and hope all is well!!
AFM, took an unpaid day off work yesterday and hung out with my girl all day. She's been spending so much time in daycare lately I just couldn't bear the thought of another day when my parents couldn't take her yesterday. So I got a precious mommy baby day!!! Made a lot of baby food. But quick question. I made a cantaloupe /banana batch but the banana part turned brown. Any ideas of how the keep the bananas from turning brown or is it enviable?? Other than that nothing to tell.
Anna, So sorry that you didn't get to see the house. Once we finalize everything I'll get a pic up of the place without and actual address. Thanks again ladies for the heads up.
On the vegetarian home front....I have to say that my sex drive has gone from nill to twice in one night. With the hormonal imbalance of PCOS I've had this problem for YEARS and all of a sudden I have this amazing sex drive that my own husband can't keep up with. The book mentions sex drives of both male and female would get better but I always ignore that stuff because it's never worked before. Umm, something's working. I also have the excess skin but everything's floating downward so I can't see any loss. Also, just under my chin is starting to sag and I feel as though my face looks bloated. What's up with that?!
Well, had the photo shoot today. Too funny! Here is a sneak peek:
Bek, try taking measurements instead of only following weight. I noticed that when losing my weight, sometimes the scale hadn't budged much when in fact I was gaining muscle and losing fat (muscle weighs more than fat) so the measurements were where the changes were happening!
And yay for sex drive, LOL! Looking forward to that returning here... With my contractions that have been going on for 3 weeks, I've avoided intimacy at all costs in case it is enough to convince my body to go into labour I did much better this pregnancy compared to the last one!
Ma, LOVE the photos!! She is sooooooooooo cute!! I love the setting. She is just precious. What a cutie!! And beautiful dress she's in!!!! Also woooohoooo for sex drive!! It may be the change in diet. Did u ever see the movie "super size me"? This guys eats horrible for 30 days and at the end he can't get it up. I'm not saying you guys ate badly but it does make the point that diet has a really strong effect on the sex drive.
Also CJ is right I would measure too. Sounds like you're loosing just in inches not necessarily pounds. And CJ I'm sorry I don't want to come off as a know it but muscle and fat weight the same, a poun is a pound is a pound, but in size they are dramatically different. A pins of muscle takes up a lot less space than a pound of fat.
Ok that's all for now. CJ how you feeling?? Sorry about the contractions. And the no sex. Take care girlie. How are Zoe's teeth??
Jules, how did the shots go? We're they today???
AFM, nothing new to report, going to easterass with friends and will put the girl in a dress. It was a lastinute decision so I don't have time to go shopping for a cute Easter dress but we'll just have to make due.
Sorry, meant to say that same amount of muscle takes up less space than fat, hence the measurements changing and not the weight.
Nathan had the monitor last night (I had 8 hours straight of sleep, no bathroom needed!), he's home until tomorrow then back up North. The next time I see him will be the night before the C-section. And we took our chances on inducing labour Just realized we won't have opportunities for intimacy until 6-8 weeks after the C-section since he's out of town!
The contractions have slowed down, I repacked the hospital bags as I had forgotten some stuff, and worked on ZoŽ's big girl room some more... Feeling great in general, such a change from third tri with ZoŽ!!!
