Wowww Beth, that's wondreful news. Congratulations, yeeeaaahhh.. Sure thing that the babydust one of you blew did work cause 3 pregnancies in one month. )) By the way I might be wrong and maybe the HCG levels in the US are different but from 170 to 1300 is a really high jump in 2 days. Can it be twins??? Looking fwd to updates from uuuu. BTW we are trying to sell and buy too. Hahaha funny all our lives are overlapping this month. I couldn't log in because of that. It is very stressful and time consuming. We did the pictures and just started the viewings. Very stressful to keep the place tidy every time right?
Hey Steph, I'll add the videos I used for Shirin. I used to alternate all techniques. Even really gently jump (more like move up and down on my tiptoes) while I had her on my shoulder cause a nurse told me the gas is like the bubble water trapped in a labyrinth like pipe. You need to dislocate the bubbles and encourage them to move upwards. Warming it helps. Rolling the baby didn't always work but definitely helped. I would sometimes roll roll roll than as soon as I put her on my arm and pat "BurP"
Thanks for this Skye!!! The first video is what I normaly do. I will try the rockin method in the second as well. I'm so sorry to hear about one of the twins. Please keep us posted. Are you ok? You have a great deal going on so please take time for you.
Skye, so sorry to hear about one of the twins. I also am praying all is well with the second. House hunting and keeping your place clean can be a lot to take on, especially with a toddler. We sold/bought last fall and it was a process. We ended up moving into my parents mountain home temporarily because the stress of having to keep the house perfect every day before work was just too much. Lots of hugs to you!!
Oh, and to answer your question, Powell was closed because of our government shut down. All government agencies (federal) are shut down until a budget can be worked out. National parks are included in this and Powell is a national park. They essentially had to evacuate the lake. At least we didn't have a grand canyon rafting trip planned. That's a 2-3 week trip and a lot of $$. They let people launch up until last Wednesday, then told everyone else on Grand Canyon trips, too bad no go.
Beth, how are you today? When is your next appointment again?? Hope all is well and as I said to Sky, I feel your pain re:house hunting/selling. But in the end we are sooooo much happier. Love and hugs.
Angela, how are you doing? How are e boys? Is everyone healthy?
Chris, thinking of you. When is your scan.? I think it's coming up. Hugs!
Steph, how's it going new mama? How's the burping going? We used the drops that Angela mentioned as well. Hugs and hope you are surviving two.
Plum, how are things? Haven't heard from you in a while. Hope all is going well in your world.
AFM, well when it rains it pours. Camping was ok. Jo got incredibley sick in the car on our way and we had to pull off the highway, wash her down, clean out the car seat as best as we could, line it with a blanket, and finish the drive. I think she drinks too much milk sometimes and it comes back up. The only other thing I can think of is car sick. Camping was ok, beautiful spot, but it was much colder than we expected. Final straw was Jo's sleeping. We bought a kids air mattress to put on the floor of the he camper, but she rolled off it every night ending up in the dog bed without a blanket, or once by the door to the trailer with no blanket, shivering in the cold. Poor little but once we brought her into bed with us she would toss and turn. Ugh!! No sleep for three nights. Needless to say we're done camping until we figure out the sleeping thing. We're also going to cut out the bottles once and for all, it's time and I think will help. When she gets up at night the first thing she says is, "bottle of milk.". Anyway, I feel bad complaining about having four days off and camping, but as it was my fall vacation, it was far from relaxing. We were home to watch the bronco / cowboy game, so silver lining. Anyway, back to the grind stone today. Girls weekend in a few weeks and fingers crossed the government can't screw that up.
Anna, can't believe they just canceled without a proper warning. They should announce it on the paper tv etc no? I bet there was a lot of people that got effected including the businesses around the parks (cafes, hotels etc) Btw do you still give Jo the formula? Is she not on cow's milk now? She might also be car sick as you said. I used to get car sick a lot when I was a kid. What are you doing for the girls week. That sounds fun )
Thank you girls for the support
House viewings are completely stressfull on both ends. Keeping the house tidy as Anna said. And also searching at the weekends. I want my bed most of the time
Beth what's going on with the numbers? Soo exciting ))
Skye, thanks, yes the trip being cancelled was really disappointing. And there was no warning, other than we knew that if the government couldn't decide on a budget then a shut down was a possibility. And the effects are far reaching as you've said. Hotels, restaurants , etc. As for Jo she'd gets cows milk. I think she's just drinking too much at one time. Getting rid of the bottle should take care of this. Think I'll bite the bullet and do it this weekend.
Sorry house hunting/selling is so stressful, I can't imagine it pregnant!!! How are you doing BTW??
Girls weekend is in Southern California. We have a friend whose family has a beach house on seal beach. Laid back community, should be nice and relaxing. Also good to see all my girl friends that have moved away. I don't know what DH is going to do. I leave Friday and come back late Monday. To the best of my knowledge he's never gotten her ready for school or packed her a lunch. I keep trying to get him involved, like telling him to sing to her if she won't be still getting dressed, it distracts her and she likes it. But I don't think he's paying much attention. Oh well, she may live in PJs for four days, but she'll be ok.
Beth, I'm anxiously awaiting news as well....
AFM, not much to tell. Hope everyone is having a good week!
Steph, I'll be in seal beach, flying into John Wayne airport. I would LOVE to see you!! I'll have access to a car. Are you at all close to there?? How are things going? Has the burping gotten any better. I used to have the worse time with gas with Jo. Hugs an hope you are well! I will be flying in early on Nov. 1st, leaving the afternoon of the 4th.
Beth, how are you?? What's going on? I get nervous when I haven't heard from you in a while. Hugs!
Chris and Skye , how are you guys???
Angela, hope you are well!
AFM, another year older today. Had date night last night. Something we need to do more of. Had a good weekend, think I did a mountain of laundry. Ok at work, better run. I have a work up-date but my wi-if isn't working and my honor is being screwy too. Maybe something to do with the snowy weather?? I'll up-date more later. Hugs to all!!
