Can I join you ladies? I haven't been following through with this thread as I haven't had consistent internet access (other than my phone) in months. But for now I'm borrowing from a neighbor so I can hopefully keep up.
3times, the whole experience with your doctor sounds quite miserable. I'm glad you are through with all that ridiculousness and can just see the midwife with your negative HIV test. How annoying!
camera, I'm sorry about your ILs. Some people have a really difficult time seeing outside of themselves it seems. I'm sorry they came and wrecked your evening with your family, it isn't right at all.
lizsky, I understand about the anxiety. Nothing is ever certain, and I think just being pregnant in general can remind us how true that is. The hormones surging through our bodies can certainly add to it. I have a prenatal yoga dvd, I think I might pop it in and see if I like it this time around. I didn't use it a lot last time, but I did like it when I did. Should make more time for myself.
I'm definitely feeling baby kicks through the day, I'm 18 weeks along. I have very little appetite lately though. Nothing sounds good to me to eat. I'm not nauseous anymore, but food in general just sounds yuck. I don't remember having this problem the past 2 times, and I am eating but probably not nearly enough. Hopefully the vitamins are helping me out here. I have an appointment with the midwife on tuesday, so maybe she'll have some good advice for me.
Thursday I get to take my 2 kiddos to the dentist. My 6 year old has to have some cavities filled, ugh, and my 4 year old just recently had a bad bike accident and has a brown front tooth. After talking with the dentist, I am worried she is going to have to have some kind of procedure to keep the tooth viable until the permanent tooth can come in. We won't know anything for sure until an xray is taken and we can see what is going on, but I'm just worried. I have some really bad memories of an oral surgery procedure when I was young, and I just don't want my kids to have to go through something traumatic like that.
