Sally - that's cool that you are starting to have contractions. Hopefully you're opening up, and shortening your active labor :)
Lakeruby - I was out walking the dog the other day, and saw a dog that looked like your avatar, and my brain though, oh hey, there's Lakeruby! Oh whoops... probably not! What did you put in your freezer? My goal was 5 freezer meals. I put away one.
Kristi & Poppy- good luck! positive labor vibes!
Andaluza - I hear you on picking up the phone for family. They start getting all twitchy when they don't get updates.
Boots - so glad Lyle is doing better, and hopefully your stress level is going down and you can enjoy your babymoon. When's your next doc appt?
Penny - I'm thinking continued low BP thoughts for you! How many more days before your next appt?
I was wondering why LilyTiger hadn't posted here, and saw on the baby pictures thread that her little one arrived. Adorable!
AFM - we're 8 days old here. Miriam is a little doll and eats and sleeps and snuggles all day. She's an incredibly easy, happy baby which is a relief as she is our 3rd! My DS (2 years) is driving me nuts, though. He is taking forever to go to bed at night, waking frequently, and staying awake for over an hour, throwing temper tantrums, and generally depriving me of sleep. You'd think the newborn would be doing that, but no! She just likes to snuggle and nurse all night. My DH is on paternity leave until the 22nd, so it is great having a good deal of help with the kids. I'm not quite sure how I am going to handle everything when he goes back to work... I am a little scared!
I'm healing ok. I think I popped a stitch last Wednesday by sitting funny, and it has hurt a good bit. I have been better about sitting in a way that doesn't aggravate it, so hopefully it finishes healing soon. I am totally enjoying not peeing myself when I sneeze, and being able to sleep on my stomach! I just started that a day or two or so... at first I couldn't because my boobs were so sore and engorged.
We have a dr's appt tomorrow for Miriam - a quick check in, but we also have to repeat her PKU test, as the results came back as "unsatisfactory" which, as I understand it, means something wasn't done right with the test, so has to be redone. AI was freaking out when the nurse called me on Sunday about this, as I wasn't sure if it was a lab error, or an abnormal result.
I'm bummed the Olympics are over! I was enjoying watching them. I wish there were more replays! Anyone else watch a lot of the Olympics?
