I have a Jeep Patriot and LOVE the heated seats.  I traded in my beloved Montana for it because we only had one small child left at home so I figured I didn't need all the space and it was better on gas, little did I know! We found out the gender with our daughter's as well. The only one we didn't know until after birth is my little one because she was adopted at three days old and our match wasn't made before birth. I have been drinking Traditional Medicine Pregnancy tea right from the beginning and it is so yummy!

 I want a woodstove.  That is all.

I'm not that cold, but am in TX and it's ridiculously warm still.  We do have our heavy blanket out, and for a couple weeks I was wearing fleece pants to bed, but then it got back up to the 80s and it's not bad. 

 

Skin is so dry though!  Got some cocoa butter lotion and everyone says I smell like chocolate :) I don't mind that!

Thanks Kawa!  BTW I just love dancing Veggies!

Hey icicle mamas, two words: Yak Trax! I was born and raised in the midwest, spent many years in Chicago where I walked and took public transport everywhere, and I still walk like a stiff, clumsy penguin when I'm on ice or even think there might be ice around me. I know I'll fall any second! But with Yak Trax I can RUN on the ice, no joke. The best $20 I've ever spent.

 

Kawa, don't find out! You should listen to your DP and let him announce it. It's fun to plan when you know the sex, but hearing it from an US tech is nothing compared to being in the glowy, exhausted, relieved, lovey space of holding your brand new baby and hearing your DP's excited announcement of the sex and/or the name of your baby! It's really worth it and if he's so into waiting, you'll be even happier that you let him have his moment. You can do it!

 

So we moved last weekend, the day before I threw my DD's 6th birthday party. DF was laid out after a moving accident (er...moving the washing machine up icy porch stairs?? They should have consulted me...) so me and my super-nesting energy took over and I moved the couch, the dining room table and chairs and 3 packed van loads of our belongings and stayed up all night unpacking and making our new little house into a home! By the time I was done, everyone thought I was lying and we had lived there for weeks. lol I love nesting. Why can't I be pregnant all the time?? It's funny, even after living in our last house for a few years, after only a few days, this place feels sooo much like our home. All of our things fill it perfectly and flow so well with the peaceful energy of this house. Even the dogs seem to be happier here. I couldn't be more excited about this house. love.gif Well, maybe if I had a wood-burning stove...

 

The party turned out to be my DD (regally decked out in her super fancy princess dress/creche/hooded cape from my mom, sparkly pink cowgirl boots from me, and a homemade felt crown from her little boyfriends), one of her girlfriends, and a house FULL of 6yo boys. I'm talking, boys in every closet, in the basement, under the beds, behind the couch. I never knew boys were so LOUD. I thought my girls were loud and wild, but they regularly mix it up with quiet with doll play or something. These guys climbed the walls at the top of their lungs for like 4 hours! omg please let this new baby be a girl! lol!

 

So glad to hear everyone is nearing the end of their MS and seems to be so upbeat! Have a great weekend! :)

I am still flip flopping back and forth between hot and cold so I can usually be found in a tank top with a thermal on top of it and sweatpants.  It's snowing and icing here, and seeing as how I'm a bumbling clumsy person to begin with I'm attempting to be extra cautious.  I'm so totally not ready for the holidays.  I decided to knit the women in my family socks for Christmas (that's 5 pairs) and I'm still not done with the first.  So everyone will be getting to see their pretty yarn on the 25th with the promise of transformation into nifty socks sometime in the coming months.  My mom has gone mad buying things for this babe, I swear she's on craigslist hourly, and admittedly has gotten some good deals.  I picked out some onesies this last week, and am eyeing books with baby knits in them :)  We're still undecided about the 20w scan, my OB encouraged but isn't forcing the issue.  My niece and nephew are moving back from AZ this week and I'm super excited because she is 20w so we'll be having our wee ones within a few weeks of each other!

 

Wishing everyone a safe and happy holiday season!!!

post #29 of 53

so the big news over here this week is that we found out we're moving to NYC just a couple of months after baby is born. And we're in Switzerland now, so it's a big move...both distance-wise and culturally. Very exciting, but also a little overwhelming to think about shipping all of our stuff and living in a hotel temporarily etc. Never a dull moment with us...haha!

 

anyone in NY?

Drowning in snow here, feeding and watering animals in the snow is not fun. We have a Christmas party/8 th birthday for our Kellen tomorrow and I cannot get to the store. We shall see today. We also got a foster calf for our milk cow to raise, but she is now being stingy and holding up her milk for us, LOL. I am so frustrated w/ dh, it took him almost 4 hours to get to work today. Honestly, why wouldn't he call in? Ridiculous!

post #31 of 53

Our snow is coming this weekend.  I feel for you though.  I was complaining about feeding and watering the alpacas just in the cold cold.gif  Of course all 40+ of them were quite content in their umpteen million inches of fleece rolleyes.gif  I wish they would make maternity Carharrt!

post #32 of 53

painefaria, so happy to hear that you are feeling better!

 

citymagnolia, glad your move and dd's party went well.

 

calynde, exciting move. 

 

Mamatoabunch, sorry your frustrated with dh.

 

Buddhamom, i love alpacas! wish i was closer i would come and give you a hand.

 

AFM: dh had a terrible flu and worked from home the past 3 days. it was interesting having him home. luckily i think ds and i some how managed not to get sick. i have a little cold (or allergies), but i'm feeling better every day. so i bought the baby 2 halloween onsies. i must confess, i have a love of everything halloween and ds wears halloween clothes all year long. and this is the time to buy halloween clothes.

That's awesome! I lived in NY for eight years, let me know if you are looking for good moms groups or anything. It really depends on which neighborhood you move to. Every neighborhood has its own groups and its own vibe :)

post #34 of 53

wow, calynde! not in NYC, but sending you a congrats and good luck! international moves are a big deal. very exciting!

 

astar: what a great image, with those halloween onies!

...

 

I think I have started to transition from looking a bit fat to actually showing. I had two people I am friendly with ask me (very excitedly) if I'm pregnant. I'm a little embarrassed that I'm showing soo much at not even quite 16 wks yet, but it is pretty fun that the word is kinda naturally getting out, if you know what I mean. Snow is piling up around here. My feet are cold, but the dog is very happy.

We are new to New Mexico, we moved from Okinawa, Japan where it is just a tropical climate all the time.  I am with all of you who are freezing.  I'm struggling a bit eyesroll.gif!  Oh well.  I must confess that because we moved as soon as I found out we were pregnant that Thursday was my very first OB appt.  and she ordered an ultrasound right away to compare dates.  I was selfishly disappointed to see that we have another baby girl on the way.  I know that sounds awful and believe me I FEEL awful for feeling that way.  I was just really hoping for a son since this will probably be our last baby.  I know God's plan for our family is perfect, I was just hoping to have that feeling of being the mother of a son.  I hear so many women talking about their sons and it makes me a little sad that I will most likely never know that.  Bash me if you must...I'm just being honest.  I am already over it and in love with my new daughter growing inside of me, I just had to share.  Thanks for listening :)

Welcome! I have lived in NM 12 years. We live in the East Mountain area.

 

Today is our Kellen's birthday. We are having a birthday party/pre-Christmas party. Lots to do today! I am scrubbing walls right now, taking a few minutes break. Boy can a few little ones make the walls filthy and it is quite a workout, just as hard as the exercise dvd I did this morning!

hi presslermom,

 

i think we may have been in the july 2008 due date club together...i remember you being in japan. 

 

well, for a wee bit of commiseration, it appears i may be on my 3rd son in a row and this is definitely our last. i am actually ok with it, but i see mamas with their cute little daughters and i wonder slightly longingly what that would be like. on the other hand, it feels kind of special having it the way it is, too...like what are the chances of that!? ha!

 

i've always harbored daydreams of santa fe, NM as a great place to live...but you guys are all making me think it must be miserably cold down there!

My dh works in Santa Fe. It took him 4 hours to get to work yesterday and 3 hours to come home. He supervises the postal carriers, bad work day.

I have boxes and boxes of RRL tea and an entire box of RRL waiting for me. I started drinking it back at like 5 weeks but I was having cramping with it, so I decided to wait until I was in my second trimester. I believe that today is the perfect freezing cold, rainy day to start drinking my tea again :)

Hi everyone!  Its nice to hear that morning sickness is easing up for some of us - it really gives me hope! 

 

I have been very sick this week - actually developed pneumonia and was in the hospital for most of the week.  I had to get antibiotics and was much more dehydrated than I would have thought so they helped me rebound from that.  Sigh... still feeling a bit crappy but sooooooo happy to be HOME!!!

 

I am with all of you who are cold all of the time.  I have been wearing layers and layers!  Here in Chicago it hasn't gotten out of the teens for a while. cold.gif  I need to move already!!
