lol- as I tucked my girls in tonight I asked my 7 year old if she thought it was cool to see her little sybling on "tv" (u/s) today. She thought about it for a minute then said "Meh. I just like babies being born and holding babies". Cute.
Where is everyone today? I had another vivid dream last night, this one was not necessarily bad, just strange. I dreamt that the baby was actually a girl, and she came out a teenager! Nicholas came in confused and said "Where's baby brother?" (That's what he calls him) He had no idea that this was supposed to be his sister-- older sister, nonetheless. And she was giving me attitude already. I told her we wanted to name her Samantha, and she said, "No, I don't like that name. My name is Julia!" I was just crying because this was not what I wanted, I wanted a baby not a teenager!! I was sad to have missed out on all the baby years and felt bad that Nicholas didn't have someone to play with. Crazy dreams
Steph- isn't it funny what your mind will do when all you want is rest?? I have crazy dreams like that sometimes. Like my kids are all grown up and I am wandering around wondering who's who?! You are just getting restless to meet your new baby!
AFM- got school today. I am an assignment one day behind I worked yesterday but with the doc appointment and all I waited until evening to start then my computer went fritz for a couple hours. So I said "forget it" and went to bed! So catch up today!
Random dream there Steph, from what i know though from friends who have girls, they may as well be teenagers from the age of 2 with the attitude!! What are you girls like Coy?
I had a horrible nightmare last night. It was actually based on the program True Blood. Do any of you watch it? It's not usually scary but it's the second time a program like that has given me a nightmare!! Vivid dreams are not a symptom I am liking!!
Coy - love your bump pic, there's no doubt that's baby!! and huge yay that the scan went well. Must have been scary when they couldn't find the heartbeat, Bubs is obviously a little wriggler!! Can we see some pics?
Laura- yes to the attidtude! My 7 year old THINKS she is smarter than anybody right now...and she drives me crazy with the knock-knock jokes But my girls are very intelligent, they have adult vocabulary by the time of two- two and a half. In fact when they tested her for kindergarten they said "skip her to third grade" as her math and reading were scoring so high but we said "no" and only went so far as grade 2!
Yes, the scan was a relief, I will post pics today soon!
Ahhh...I just had an awesome "moment" lol. I actually had time to just sit on my bench on the front porch in the waaarrrrmmm sunshine and eat frozen purple grapes. Mmm. It didn't last long. Before I knew it I had a 3 year old on my lap and she was kicking my legs with her swinging feet and talking talking talking, lol I love my girls
Laura- Ugh... sorry about your nightmare. I know them too well these days. No, I don't watch True Blood, I'm not into the vampire thing! I'm sure I'd have all sorts of nightmares if I watched it though. I try to watch more light-hearted or funny tv shows and movies and not anything too intense, especially during pregnancy!
Coy- Wow, so your daughter skipped 2 grades?? And they wanted her to skip 3?? That's wild.
Steph & Laura- great idea to avoid scary stuff in pregnancy lol! I don't watch vampire stuff either--too many nightmares as a kid! I used to have horrible warewolf dreams (shiver) so try to avoid horror films of any kind. I do watch Blue Bloods though (totally different blood thing ) and Person of Interest is pretty awesome.... That is if I have time! I am usually doing school.
Yep, they switched her up until she was "challenged" as she was bored with the other stuff. And she is really smart...I don't have to help her with math, she understands it already lol! She understands all the different periods of the earth, knows all the "saureses" and etc...9/10ths of it I don't get
I am glad I was able to schedule for dh to come with me yesterday...and scary as it was glad he saw baby on the u/s. Now he said he stresses a lot less than he did before because he saw the baby moving, etc. He is already picking out sports gear, cigars (for when baby is born ) and imagining what (s)he will look like
Gonna try to get off to bed now ladies - trying for an early night tonight! "see" you all tomorrow!
Good late morning ladies! Crazy day so far..I tried to cook breakfast while altering my pants Two hungry girls and I refuse to cook in my robe, lol. Btw, I hate peeling boiled eggs. I try the cold water thing and it doesn't seem to help
Ashley - I would've thought it'd be ok to get started on the Provera now... I'm not exactly a medical genius though so don't take my word on it
Laura - I've never watched True Blood... not really into the whole vampire thing. I'm useless with scary films/TV anyway. I used to refuse to watch The Ghost Whisperer at night so I didn't go to bed with the story playing on my mind
Coy - I'm really glad the scan went well and you saw baby so active in there... very reassuring
AFM, I've been ridiculously busy lately, getting the house ready to move back into. It's not been lived in for three months because I came to stay with my Nan when I was so sick and Mom was having her cancer treatment in a hospital an hours drive away so stayed with her parents. Hopefully we'll be back in our own home in a couple of weeks. We have a trial run this weekend, just so we can work out our routine now I'll be caring for my Mom full time xx
