aleatha - I'm so sorry about your little guy! That must have been terrifying for you to have him so sick and be hospitalized. Having a child in the hospital, at any age and for any reason, is downright scary. I have no experience with Kawasaki so I can't offer you any help there. I hope that he's recovering well.
Max'sMama - I'm 18w2d and I don't look pregnant at all. I just look like my normal chubby self. I've actually lost 26 lbs, and gained 1 back in the last 2 weeks, but still no baby bump. One of my fellow nursing school students didn't believe me when I told her that I was 18w pregnant today! She kept looking at my belly and saying, "There is NO WAY that you are pregnant!!" I would like to have at least a little belly at this point. But, knowing my body I won't start looking pregnant until about 24-26 weeks.
Josie - you'll have to update us on the sono and let us know what you found out!
As for me... the first week of a new semester is always stressful with the new classes, new schedule, new instructors, new expectations, and of course the new homework. Added to that, I had a child support hearing yesterday that was absolutely brutal. Not only was I sitting in a court waiting room from 8 am until 2 pm, I was informed that my ex-husband won't have to pay child support for our children. EVER AGAIN. And the $55k in back child support is pretty much a lost cause too. He's on disability and the kids each get a small amount from Social Security every month, which essentially replaces child support. And, all the money they've ever been paid will be subtracted from the total amount of back support due and he'll have to pay only that amount plus interest. Except, they can't garnish from SSDI so he'll have to pay it of his own volition. Yeah, that will never happen.
And then I found out that baby daddy of the belly bunny hasn't paid our cell phone bill for 2 months. So, not only is the phone that I need for school not working when I absolutely need it, the phone bill is $600!! That I will have to pay out of my pocket with my student loan money.
At this moment in time, I pretty much hate men. I hate irresponsible people. I hate liars. I hate people that talk a great game but can't back anything up with actions. I want to do nothing more than crawl in my bed and stay there indefinitely. However, because I have children and school and pets and responsibilities that I cannot walk away from, I won't do that. I will keep doing what I'm doing while other people in my life do nothing of what they're supposed to be doing.
