"Been a long weekend - I told someone about what happened with the ultrasound and she said it probably is a miscarriage and they are just waiting 2 weeks to see if I need a D&C or something. This is going to be a very LONG 2 weeks! It wasn't something I wanted to hear so now, of course, I'm freaking out about it.
Slap that B(*&h up the side of the head!!!!!!!!
Steph I really feel for you with the MS it is the pits, but from it comes such a wonderful creation.
Ang, mastitis and a sick baby thank goodness for MIL, heaven sent.
MA meat all the way at least two times a week or I feel week, especially during my period as I no longer take the pill and I suffer from menorrhagia (overly heavy periods-one tampon an hour plus maternity pads. TMI I know ). My iron levels drop drastically so meat meat meat!!
Anna, sorry to bum you out with weather but it really is fantastic!!! Annnnnnnd you are still nauseous ???????
AFM still living the single life, Callum has gone down today without a peep for the first time in two weeks. Actually I had better get him up soon for dinner (he's been down 3 hours) bath and bed again!
Glad Callum had such a good nap!! Did he go back down again ok? How much longer are you single? Every time my DH goes out of town it makes me truly appreciate single moms. I don't know how they do it.
AFM, snowy and cold, but that's how we like it. Not that I'm not dreaming of my Mexico beach and spending my free time googling what to do in Mexico, but if it's going to be cold at least snow. Plus it's our bred and butter. If you're going to live in a ski town, you'd better like snow.
Jo is good but got up at 5am this morning. DH got up with her, but I woke up too and couldn' t turn off my brain off. So I got up and DH went back to bed. Reason for my a.m. wheels turning is Jo's verbal. She is just falling way behind in the speech area and I think it's because she is using sign language as a crutch. They teach a lot of sign in day care, but my friend and mother of three little ones in California says that now the experts believe that too much sign language delays speech. I'm guessing that's what is happening with us. Now I just have to tackle day care and try and get them over to my side. I'm going to email my friend and see if she has any sources on this topic, articles I can print off and take into day care with me. She will talk eventually, but she is really behind now.
So that's all from me, hope everyone is well! Steph and Beth, hang in there!!
Beth, thinking of you this morning and sending lots of hugs and good thoughts that this is one sticky bean and all will be well!!
Thanks for all the MS well wishes! I truly appreciate it.
Angela - how are you feeling sweets? How is Reece and how is Ethan? Is he finally over his cold?
Viv - Good to hear from you and awesome that Callum went down for his nap without a hitch. Fingers crossed this is a recurring thing and at night as well LOL! Question what how much time is Callum awake between his nap and bedtime? I ask because sometimes Katelyn will take a 3 1/2 hour nap and when it is time for her usual bedtime it will take 45min to an hour to get her to go to sleep.
Anna - Why do you think that Jo is delayed in speech? I hope you are able to get some good information on sign language and speech development. If you want I can ask some of my friends as well. I have friends in the child development field and would be more than happy to see if there is any information for you.
Beth - please let us know how everything goes today! I will be thinking of you today and tomorrow!
AFM - I need to get some more ginger stuff to keep the MS at bay. I am good as long as I am eating. I go in for my prenatal informational tomorrow where they will do the first part of the gloucose test YUCK! They also schedule the 1st ultrasound then. I will keep everyone posted. Katelyn woke up at 4:30am last night and it took an hour and some crying on her part for her to go back to sleep. The night before she was up at 5am and then same thing, I had to force her to go back to sleep, which she did, but still.
Not sure what is going on with her sleep patterns of late. I hope that it is a phase and that by end of February she will be back to sleeping at least until 5:30 before waking up and wanting to get into our bed...
had my blood test this morning, will find out the results tomorrow. Thanks for all your prayers!
Selfish post right now as I'm so very upset for my sister. She is a few years old than me and has 4 kids right now and found out a few months ago she is unexpectedly pg with their 5th. they are nervous but excited. She had that DNA chromosome test done and all was clear and is a girl. Charlie and I are to be godparents, baby due in june. My mom just called me to tell me that this past ultrasound she had, it doesn't look good. Seems there is only 1 kidney and only 1 vein and artery in the umbilical cord, not much amniotic fluid, and the NT test indicated downs, as well as she having a small chin, which I guess is also another marker of downs. They told her most likely she will be severely disabled with mental ******ation. I am so upset for her. She is so confused because the last ultrasound was fine! She has another ultrasound in 2 weeks, the dr say, it may be distorted because there isn't a ton of fluid in there. There is nothing on either side of downs, so who knows where this is coming from. What scares me is that Charlie's older brother had severe downs and passed away when he was 3 months old. Now I'm freaking out and I feel so terrible because that is SO selfish of me to think of myself at a time like this. So please switch any prayers from me to her, she and her little girl need them more than I do.
ok, I'm crying too much to see straight. Charlie is kinda mad that mom told me right now when she knows I'm waiting for the next ultrasound but I told him I would want to know, it's my sis!
Thanks Steph - she is not going to have it because the risk of miscarriage with it is higher with her - her uterus is paper thin and they are afraid of it happening. She wasn't supposed to get pg again as she has some issues with her liver when she does and the fact that her uterus is so thin. So she is going to stick with the next ultrasound and see what happens. I hope they are wrong and this next one shows no issues.
Beth I'm so sorry and will be praying for BOTH of you!
Sorry ladies. I have so much I want to say but keep needing to sleep whenever I can between feedings; got no sleep last nite due to cold. Hanging in, hoping for better days soon! Reece to dr tomorrow for checkup and first shots. Lord help me!
