I did tell DH, he was happy about it. Went to Dr office today and had it confirmed. We have a prenatal orientation on Jan 31st. Get to do the glucose test and from then they will schedule my 1st ultrasound. YAY.
Ok, at work and cant really type, will check back later.
Hope you are all well! YAY Steph on the confirmation! So glad I have a bump buddy here!
Angela - sorry about little Ethan's cough. Poppy had one at New Years and it is jarring to hear such a noise from a little one. Hoping it goes away soon!
Anna - hi! Sorry about the issue with the grandparents, that is a narrow line to walk but you are right, she can't be wet through like that! Hoping that went better. Poppy had a tooth soooooo close and it's been driving him nuts but I think there are more that aren't quite so close but coming in. I swear it's been non-stop for us too for Months! this will be tooth #8 but I think there are more coming soon as he chomps HARD in the back and sides. sigh. poor things!
Viv - so nice to have you back!!!
AFM - morning sickness abounds. But I'm armed with crackers and gingerale. I made a mistake on the U\S date - it is a week from today! yay! It will be our 1st one! Charlie is irritated because it's the day before his company has a big move but he wouldn't miss the hearing of the heartbeat.
Our anniversary dinner was lovely. He wears a tie to work everyday so he always dresses nice and I dressed up too when he went to get the food. We had a lingering dinner while poppy slept upstairs, and had a great time. Thank you all for the happy wishes!
I just finished up doing a contract work for my old company. It's nice - I do it all remotely and have a couple of hours every few months.
ok, must go back to the couch before Poppy stirs too much so I can rest a little more. attached is the new scally hat I made him the other day. My little model loves my hats!
Beth, he is soooooo cute!! I love the hat!! Will you make me one too?? Just kidding but your talents are limitless!! Yeh for ultra sound!! Hope things are going well for you, that MS is a bear.
Steph, woohoo for confirmation!! Hope you've had a good week. Glad DH knows.
Angela, love the pop- ins. Sorry to hear Ethan still has a cough, so does Jo. I never did take her to the doctor, but if its not gone by this weekend I may to make sure no respiratory infection. She's just been sick for too long.
AFM, Nothing new to report. Jo is still teething, not eating much. It was a crazy morning as I had to get us all packed for the weekend before work. We're leaving this afternoon, myself from work, won't be going back to the house. So all had to be done before work which is a crazy time regardless. DH had to dress Jo for the day and you would have thought I'd asked him to solve the world hunger crisis. Miraculously he managed to pull it off and neither was the worse for wear. So we are packed and off for another adventure. However, two weekends in a row of going out of town and i'll be ready to be home for a weekend. Just need time to get stuff done. On the weight loss front, one more pound down. I'm trying to be excited that I didn't gain anything, but after such a good start, I'm bummed it's only a pound. But I guess after my bender last weekend, it's to be expected.
Mexico looms, dreaming of white sandy beaches . . .
Have a good weekend, we will have Internet so i'll check in. . . .
P.S. MA, thinking of you, hope all is well . . . .
Beth- love the hat you made for Poppy!!!! In fact I have loved all the clothing you have made for him that I have seen. You are so talented!
Anna have a great weekend! Sounds like you will have a blast. Soon you'll be able to get Jo her own skiing stuff and she will be right next to you you on the slopes!
Angela I hope Ethan is feeling better. How is Reece?
Rebekah how are you? I miss you. I hope you are ok.
Jules/Viv hope you both are well miss you too.
AFM I have been completely exhausted the past few days. Just starting to feel nauseated but not too bad. Which kind of freaks me out. As well as the fact that when I miscarried I got pregnant in January. So please pray for a sticky bean. In the meanwhile I will try not to fret and stress. We are gonna take it easy today maybe go to the mall and get Katiebug some new shoes. I'll check back later.
Sorry I've been so scarce here this past couple weeks. Of course everyone was sick last week and then we were on vacay this past week. My mother in law came with us and, as always, was a huge help, but it has been a crazy week even so, with Ethan still coughing/runny nose/generally feeling pitiful, and me losing even more sleep than usual as Reece has suddenly decided to fight me at every nursing session. it has been frustrating, as during the first part of the week everyone seemed to be doing well, then the week sort of devolved into the nursing issues and continued sickness for poor ethan bug. I can tell I am also still fighting this illness that everyone else in the family has had. But, all in all it was still wonderful to get away from the dreary weather at home, and get into the sunshine and moderate temperatures we enjoyed this week. Yay for vacay!
Anna, I hear you on the teething. Poor Ethan has been getting absolutely hammered with new teeth just one after another after another. We are having to give him Advil almost every day just so he can eat! I'm with you... Does it ever freaking end? Poor munchkins!! I know he's hurting when he refuses to eat. Hope Jo gets over it soon as well and these kids can get a break!
Steph, I'm still SO excited for you and Beth, and I am praying all goes perfectly for both of you. I hope that you don't have too much nausea, but at the same time i know it is scary when you feel like symptoms subside, etc. Did you say they do the glucose test this early? I hate to think of you having to drink that stuff when you are already nauseated!
Beth, happy belated anniversary and hugs! How are you feeling sweetie? LOVE the cap on Poppy and I am so amazed at all your baking, cooking and knitting skills! I am knitting an afghan, but it is literally a three or four year project already,..and no completion date in sight lol!
Rebekah, like others I'm praying you are doing well, and are getting out and spending time with your sweet girl and hubby. Update us when you can. And be sure you are taking your vitamin d!
Viv, SO good to see you post here again! Congratulations on the engagement! And Callum is just precious. Such a cutie!
Jules honey I hope you and sweet Gabby are well!
Well ladies, my mother in law is taking care of Reece overnight for us so we can catch a little more sleep, so I'd better run and take advantage of that gift. Hugs and love!
Steph, I know it's hard, my lack of pregnancy symptoms really freaked me, but not every pregnancy is the same and not everyone gets sick. Sending lots of sticky bean dust your way!!!
Angela, I'm so happy I'm not the only one giving my kid pain relievers. I feel like Jo gets Tylenol daily. So happy MIL was there and gave you a hand. Vacation sounds awesome! I hope you got a good nights sleep! Hope everyone is on the mend, but sorry you are fighting it too. How are you feeling today? How's Ethan? Those darn colds that linger. Lots of hugs to the little man.
AFM, well it was a weekend of the good, the bad and the ugly. W were in Wolf Creek and I've never been there before. It's beautiful and the group we were with was really great. The weather could not have been more gorgeous, with temps feeling like spring. Jo on the other hand had a rough time sleeping and ended up spending the night in our bed two nights. And she is not a quiet sleeper. Any one traveling with a tot and have any advice? It's never happened before, and now I'm worried about Mexico. We could tough it out for a few nights, but not for a whole week. It wouldn't have been that bad if I hadn't gotten yet another round of stomach flu.
Yesterday we went for a long cross country ski and I felt fine. Came home, took a shower, and still fine. Then around dinner time didn't feel that great, an hour later I was curled up on the couch with fever and nausea. By the end of the football game I was done, made it to our room and tossed everything (sorry TMI). Luckily that was the only time I threw up and my fever broke a few hours later, but sharing the bed with a restless toddler was the last thing I needed. I'm week today and REALLY don't want to go to work, but all will work out. I'm just in survival mode today. Anyway all told the weekend was a success and we got some great cross country skiing in. Plus with all the sunshine , good hit of vitamin D.
...speaking of, MA, you've been MIA. I'm a little worried. Hope you're just spending time with DH and Amelia.
Oh Anna I am so sorry about the stomach flu! And yes, traveling with these little people is definitely an adventure all in itself. We are driving home now, and so far today we have seen or done all of the following (in many cases, more than once): packed up the condo and car with not one but two screaming children (I actually think that may have been what I consider Ethan's first full-blown, red white and blue temper tantrum, and before 9 am to boot), one screaming howling dog (who despite never once being abandoned in the four years we have had her, always thinks she will be left), approximately eleventy-billion snotty kleenex from poor Ethan's constantly running nose, one infant carrier/carseat and sleeper COMPLETELY wrecked from a poop volcano, a cleanup that (much like peanut butter) got absolutely everywhere and on everything before it got better...(sorry if anyone was eating lunch! ) and an infant whose poor little head got whacked on the seat belt buckle when daddy, trying to be helpful, yanked out the boppy that I had positioned to keep exactly that from happening. Throw in some assorted crumbs and salt all over the console of my new car from where hubby (ironically, not the children!) turned over the Zaxby's fries, and it's been a fun afternoon! all first world "problems" of course, and no big deal( but traveling with little peeps sure is never boring! Meanwhile my poor monkey Ethan had had only some goldfish today (all he would eat despite being offered both breakfast and lunch so far) I think between this never ending cold and his teeth he is just over food. Poor kid. He is going back to the dr this week if he is not better soon. I think his cough is getting worse instead of better.
Anyway, Anna on the sleep, will she sleep in a pack n play? What did you do for her sleep last trip to Mexico? Ethan does well in his pop or have you seen the peapods? Very cool for camping etx and we have one though have not tried him sleeping in it yet.
