Oh, wow, Kat, you could have that baby any time now!
Did y'all see the video I posted on FB of the two Dutch guys who experienced simulated labor? It was funny and very interesting. The one guy who went all the way through looked and sounded just like a woman in labor.
Carrie ~ Sorry about the infection.
Did they tell you what it was if not strep? I guess at the end it doesn't really matter if you need abx either way.
Interesting, though, that the doc would have diagnosed strep based on a visual exam when it wasn't. That's how they diagnose lots of things like flu deaths. They don't test for the flu. They just assume flu if you present with "flu-like" symptoms and then call it an outbreak and try to scare everyone into getting the vaccine.
JJ ~ D wears soft soled shoes and he still falls down a lot. He doesn't get seriously hurt. It's all part of learning. He likes to run, which is the cutest thing, but he falls more often. He also likes to climb on everything and almost always falls off at some point.
Have any of you tried taking your LOs somewhere where they could wander a bit safely just to see how far they'll go? Studies say that, although they may look like they are wandering or running off, most toddlers will only go a set distance (I can't remember what the distance is) before they come back. D will walk a bit ahead of me. Sometimes I get nervous about it but as long as I don't freak out and go chasing after him, he doesn't usually run off. He will run off if he thinks/knows I'm going to stop him from doing something he wants to do but that's normal.
We signed all the papers for the refi. Now it's just a matter of waiting for them to be reviewed and approved and then our current loan paid off. I wish we had done this 2+ years ago. Two realizations I have come to this year: one, don't wait for dh to make a decision about something because he won't. Two, don't let dh do anymore home repairs because it always ends up costing us more when we have to have a professional come in and fix his mess.
