post #161 of 166

We just did a quiet Thanksgiving at home this year.  Since I was having panic attacks just in the last couple of weeks, I didn't want to wake up at someone's house screaming in the middle of the night. Not to mention the inlaws are stressful enough and not something I needed to deal with right now (not that they mean to be).  DH was so sweet. He usually cooks the turkey but we did chicken this year seeing as how he's raised so many.  So he cooked the chicken and most of the side dishes. All I had to do was a waldorf salad and we had a great meal and have enjoyed lots of leftovers. He cooks most of our meals anyway but that he took on such an important meal pretty much by himself was really great.

 

I've had two nights of sleeping straight through the night. Yay!  I'm feeling relaxed and actually started picking up the house a bit today.  During most of the first trimester (13 weeks 5 days) I've not done anything more than survive.  This time I started with our bedroom because it always gets neglected since it's easier to lock guests out of and everything gets thrown in it. It will be our birthing suite so I'm determined it's going to take a higher priority.  I'm going to continue to organize it for the next few days and then move onto the kids room and the playroom. Maybe wishful thinking but we'll see.

haye had a fever last night...i checked on him, got in bed to watch the royal tenenbaums, fell asleep and woke up to him screaming and crying (so weird...he usually comes to our bed to sleep with us). he said he missed me and must have had a bad dream so i slept up in his bunk with him. i noticed he was super hot and stripped him down (he usually wears his long johns to bed)...finally at 6am after zero sleep between him complaining and being itchy and me being just generally uncomfortable from getting his knees in the back all night long i went to bed. we got up around 8 and i knew he was sick instantly...cancelled our playdate and pulled him out of school. he didn't eat anything past 3pm (neither did i, we're both just feeling crappy) and i monitored his fever all day. it got up to 100.8 at one point (i think it was a bit higher in the night) and at 7:30 pm it was still 100.5. an hour later and it was back to normal! hoorah! i didn't want to treat it until it hit 102 because i want his body to fight the infection but it was a long day. i hope he sleeps well tonight!

 

anyone else have a super active baby during certain hours of the day? mine is very active between 8 and 11 pm. there have been a couple times where i have been busy during those times and subsequently didn't feel any movement. generally though i am laying on my side watching a movie during that time so that must be why i'm feeling it so much. pretty sure i'm going to have a night lover on my hands! i wonder if those of you who aren't yet feeling your baby is because they are really active during a time that you are most active? interesting thought...

I still can't feel my baby.

 

I wonder if it's the retroverted uterus or an anterior placenta or soemthing. I know it's moving in there because it kept moving away from the doppler last appointment.

I know it's frustrating.  I think I am about where you are.  My uterus just recently popped forward from retroverted, and I MAY have felt some flutters but I don't know.  I'm not really expecting it as I didn't feel DD until 18 weeks and I am almost 14 weeks now.  I know mine is moving too, but...  Hang in there you are not alone.

i'm not feeling much either.  occasionally i think i feel something but it's nothing i can definitely say is the baby.  however, i'm only 14 weeks and i didn't feel dd until 19 weeks and the twins until 18 or 19 weeks!  so i'm trying to stay calm but it's going to be a long week until my next appointment unless i feel something soon.  

 

it does help to know i'm not the only one not feeling anything!

Eventful week.  We lost power due to a windstorm, preceded by a snow storm on Monday afternoon didnt get it back till wed late afternoon.  We actually had to stay in a hotel tues night because the temp was in the teens and our generator and space heaters just couldnt keep us at a temp I felt okay having the toddler in.  It actually took time and a warm bath to get our body temps back up to 98.+ even after we got to the hotel.  It was a whirlwind to get everything ready for Thanksgiving dinner or Thursday afternoon, but I ditched making rolls from scratch and used store bought crusts, so that helped.  Everything came together though, and it was a great day.  Then we had a friend spend the last couple nights.  She is a buddhist nun and we havent seen her since she was ordained so we had a lot of catching up to do.  It was so sweet to see how DD took to her considering the shy phase she is currently in.  It usually takes her a couple days to even warm up to her grandma who comes every 4-6 weeks.  She actually fell asleep in her arms.  It was like she had some type of  special buddhist touch ;) 

 

Havent felt baby as much the last few days so I pulled the doppler out.  I know it's just because Ive been so busy, but since babe was so active prior it was really freaking me out.  Im hoping that now that everyone is gone and things are settling back to normal Ill get to enjoy more of the movements.  rylee, this babe is also really active at bedtime, between 9-11.  And then Ill get a little spurt around 3pm - very similar to DD.

 

I did some black friday shopping on Thursday night.  Pumpkin patch is one of my favorite kids clothes places but its too expensive for me to buy at regular price, everything was 40% off and alot of things were marked down significantly beyond that.  I was able to get 16 pieces of clothing and 9 pairs of socks and some headbands for 100 bucks with taxes, so that made me happy.  I also got hubby some stuff from the gap's sale.. so Im getting closer and closer to finishing everything.  Im completely finished with DD.  I might make her night clothes, but Im not sure yet.  Ive been so tired lately, I just dont want to overcommit.  I usually send out 7-10 packages of cookies and homeade goodies to friends every year and that is kind of a marathon so Im trying not to exhaust or stress myself.

 

What are you guys getting your men?  My hubby is so hard to shop for, he never wants anything.  He made a list but my mom bought most of the stuff on it already.. Im buying him his own down comforter because dd always steals most of ours.. and Im making him some flannel sleep pants lined with bamboo velour.. but Im drawing a total blank on anything else besides the stuff I bought already, a merino wool sweater and some layering shirts from the gap.
