WLL hasn't been on in over a day... 36 hours to be exact! I think it is so funny that when we don't hear from her, I immediately think, "maybe she's having those babies!!!!!!!!!!" Either way, I hope you're doing well, WLL!!!!
Spughy- rhubarb-prune smoothie?! That actually sounds pretty good. I LOVE rhubarb! :D Glad the mini vacation went well. I am slightly jealous of the pumpkin caramel pudding... yam and ginger icecream?!?! UGH! I want some. :D (I just realized I should eat breakfast...)
BUKO! We miss you!!! Or, at least I do! :D
writermama- Sorry for the rotten sleep. I hope your physical ailments get better soon. Also, I wanted to weigh in on the mother situation, but didn't know if I should. I have a dad like your mom. The situation may be a little different b/c of the difference in the mother/daughter and father/daughter relationships, alcoholism and the fact that he goes for years at a time without talking to me... But, it eventually got to the point where there was a "straw that broke the camel's back" and I had to cut off all contact. Not fun, but doing so has been extremely helpful. I don't know what the answer is for your situation, but I am sorry you have to go through this with your mom.
Clumsy- I think it is safe to say you get the reward for making all of us laugh yesterday with mention of your sexy bedtime routine.
beatifulnm- I am thinking of you. Hoping all is well and that your water hasn't broken yet! Keep us updated!
Chapsie- Thank you for the copy of the stomach massage. I think I am gonna have DH read up on it. He greased up my itchy belly last night and it felt so good. I think it would be even better if there was a method to his greasing. lol.
LightForest- I have been reading the micropreemie article a little bit at a time. It's been good so far (I am halfway through part 2). What a hard choice to have to make...what a tough road to have to travel. I am only able to ttake it in a little bit at a time because of the heaviness of it all... (I haven't even been able to watch The Wonder Years lately because of my evening mellowness....) I am not depressed so much... just VERY effected by anything remotely sad.
babytoes- I like the idea of starting a fb page.... I just really want to be careful that the DDC doesn't become a desert before all of the babies arrive. I want to make sure the late marchers (some of whom won't have babies until April) have our full support throughout their pregnancies. So I am torn as to when to start that up... hmmm...
Granolamama09-I am so glad you are back!
chocolatechip- I am happy your trip went well. Your description of your brother and dad's reactions to baby are soo cute! And, yeay for functioning kitchens on the main floor!!!!!!
Scruffy- WOW! That doctor sounds amazing. I am glad you were able to meet with her. It is always such a surprise to me when an MD takes their time and shows compassion and caring like that. My first experience with that as an adult was the doctor who "diagnosed" my second miscarriage. He was so amazing and sweet. Actually gave me a real and non-awkward hug and everything.

AFM- Not much to report... I had a chiro adjustment on Monday that was AMAZING!!! Actually, all 3 of her children were born at home, so we had a lot to chat about. The only weird thing was that the woman was not much older than me... So weird to see the age gap bw me and healthcare professional slowly closing. Also, I found a white hair...on me! It was an eyelash, so maybe doesn't count? But I think that and the similarity in age b/w me and the chiro mean I must be an adult or something. (Not to mention the marriage and 3rd kid on the way!!! Just weird. I don't feel like a grown up, just like a Jodie!)
I am grabbing lunch with a friend today. She adores my kiddos and just so happens to be the midwife I had for DD2. Always so nice to see her. And I can't wait for my subway sandwich! :D
Hoping all is well with all of you!!!!!!
