Dioramamama, I think we have the same mom. My mom's reaction to my news was to tell me about someone she knows who has to have a very late abortion because they just found out her child has no brain. I haven't figured out a response to that yet.
He pretends he is a baby and says "I am a baby, goo goo ga ga." He also pretends to be various animals. He will wrap up his cars in some way and pretend they are presents for me and him and we will pretend to open them. He pretends to be asleep. I love it when he pretends, I think it's really fun!

I've been taking 1,000 mg/day since Jan 1, haven't been sick since, and probably conceived right around then. My doc said it was fine.
As you said, campus administrators have already done the legwork and know there's demand... so I don't think showing more demand (through petitions) would prove anything. Building a new building is not a small undertaking--it's a capital project that will alter the physical plant of the college for decades to come. (Yes, I'm a college administrator too.) Where is the money for the building going to come from? Colleges usually finance their buildings, sometimes through...

I think the...

Even if I doubled up bedrooms, 4 still wouldn't fit where I live now and it's a rather nice place. This is #2 and I think we'll stop...
Ugh. I've always drank a ton of water, I'm one of those people who always has a water bottle with them. But lately I think it's disgusting. I don't know why. It's just gross! Anyone with me? Any tips to make it more palatable? I'm off to get a refill on my ginger tea anyway (thank goodness for ginger tea). At any rate it makes me think I must be having a girl, I had no nausea with my son.
No, it's totally unacceptable.
I did the elliptical until a week before I gave birth, I had been a runner and it was a concession to my own paranoia (my doc had said running was fine). This time, I'm still running. But, I've been running regularly for ten years. I don't think pregnancy is the time to start any strenuous --new-- exercise routines, but if it's something you've been doing, you're feeling good and listening to your body (no cramping, shortness of breath, spotting, etc.) go for it!
