OkiMom my doctor is always happy to prescribe something to me over the phone, could you call and tell them how awful you are feeling and ask them to call something in for you?

Congrats to all of the moms who are feeling better and to all of those still struggling. We can do this mamas!

Good to hear that you are feeling better debra. I'm starting to feel more energetic, if not less pukey.

I had my nt scan today. Baby is so cute. Everything looks great. No clues on the sex though. I'm happy.

Glad everything went well! I was thinking about you and hoping you got in for your appt before the babe grew too much.

Does anyone know any good recipes or ideas for zuccini? My FIL keeps dropping them off at our doorstep and I can't think of anything tasty (and easy) to make. I roasted 3 tonight (and ate ALL of them, oppsie) and I guess I can make muffins or something but I have 6 huge ones left...and I'm sure tomorrow will bring some more, LOL...

If i have a lot of zucchini I grate it and freeze it then use it all winter in zucchini bread (my favourite) or you can toss it in soup, stews or pasta or whatever. I think I put some in a frittata once?

soup would be good -
do you just use a cheese grater? I don't have a food processor or anything fancy.

I'm on edge and waiting patiently for my US results from last Friday. I called my midwife's office earlier to get them and the receptionist said she had them but the midwife would call me back with the results. I know their office closes later today (8pm) but it's after 9pm and I am getting impatient....

oh my, how can they just leave you hangin like that? I got real lucky that I was given my results right away. I'm so sorry they are making you wait. That's the pitts.

My baby is measuring one day ahead so at the nt scan I was 13w6d. Talk about cutting things close, I mean really! It all worked out and no finger prick or blood work.

My poor DH, I dragged him and the kids with me to San Fran for the scan. We had to get up at 6:45 to be out of the house by 7:30. I didn't find out until after the scan that my friend had called him at 2:00am needing a ride home from the ER. What a good friend my guy is.

I love to sauté zucchini, mushrooms, and garlic together and then add them to spaghetti sauce.

oooh me too, with stewed tomatoes and ground beef. I had that for dinner last night. Bell peppers go well too.

my filtering device was turned off today. I can't believe the stuff that came out of my mouth without having passed through the brain first. I emailed my daughters' dance school a message intended for my MIL

Can I blame pregnancy hormones?

Tomorrow can't come soon enough!

So I still haven't heard from my midwife!!! Argh...

I don't know if I should call back or what.

I wouldn't normally be super worried but due to my age which already puts me at high risk and getting a marginal measurement I'm really anxious to know either way.
post #52 of 91
Yep, just a cheese grater for the zucchini
post #53 of 91
Michelle, I would call back. It is possible that she had to attend a birth and forgot to call you back. Also my old midwife only called if test results were bad, otherwise I had to wait until my next appointment. SO maybe your test results are great!

ugh so today my midwife couldnt find the heartbeat (13 weeks, 4 days and we heard it at 9 weeks). so after a long talk of "what ifs" I pleaded with her to try again...and she found it! she didn't record the rate but put it down as "yes" as to hearing it.

now I need to recover from that....

Oh my...I can imagine how scary that must have been! I'm glad all is well!!

Zucchini - we LOVE zucchini fritters. Grated up and squeezed dry and mixed with some flour/egg/feta cheese/grated onion/spices and pan fried in a little oil. So good!

This is another one we really love. I'm dying to make it but I've been avoiding the oven so the house doesn't get hotter than it already is!


3 eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup vegetable oil
3 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups white sugar
2 cups shredded zucchini
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 pint fresh blueberries

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease 4 mini-loaf pans.

In a large bowl, beat together the eggs, oil, vanilla, and sugar. Fold in the zucchini. Beat in the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon. Gently fold in the blueberries. Transfer to the prepared mini-loaf pans.

Bake 50 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a knife inserted in the center of a loaf comes out clean. Cool 20 minutes in pans, then turn out onto wire racks to cool completely.

Ultrasound video. This is so amazing! Dancing around in there, I could watch it all day. And the kids thinks it's really cool as well!
post #57 of 91
oh pixie that is just awesome to watch! And you still are so toned!!! My goodness, you are a lucky one
post #58 of 91
Aww, great video, I love little squirmy babies!

Slightly off topic but, I would love to give a big hug and thumbs up to Judge Vaugh Walker who found that the California ban on same-sex marriage (Prop 8) violated the constitutional due process and equal protection rights of gay and lesbian couples and ordered an injunction against enforcement of the law. "Proposition 8 fails to advance any rational basis in singling out gay men and lesbians for denial of a marriage license," Walker wrote in a 136-page ruling.

Score one for the good guys!

Pixie - cute video! My babe was so well behaved at our US, LOL....

Thanks for the recipes and ideas. I baked some with garlic and olive oil and onions last night and paid the price dearly...LOL...heartburn galore. Awesome. Maybe muffins might be best? LOL...the Zukes are multiplying...need to bake.

So I called my midwife back kind of like WTH...and she answered the phone. LOL. So I got my results....1:810 for downs and 1:10,000 for tri 18/13. Which is awesome considering my age risk for ANY chromosomal issue is 1:80.

Anyways, I need to go put away about 9 loads of clothes (ugh) but the 2 pints of haagen daz in the freezer are calling me...

I can't agree with you more nintendork, it's great news!

It's my baking day again. Tonight it's blueberry muffins. I need some to bring to my spinning and fiber group tomorrow night and some are for my neighbors (I'm bartering baked goods for childcare while my husband is away).

I'm only 11+ weeks now, but I am feeling MUCH less drained, thank goodness!
