Thanks. smile.gif. That's my old faithful...an Ulli Storchenwiege. It has made it through wrapping 4 kids so far without a single complaint. I love that thing!

lol GISDiva. I hope you get to hear your little one today.

 

 

As for me I heard a hb of 152-155 this am.  He showed me where my uterus was and that its in the right place for 15 weeks 3 days.  He said its my diet that's keeping my numbers low which is excellent.  He said I was doing fine.  Yay!!  I also drank a kombucha because it was calling my name and it was yummy. orngtongue.gif

Me too- I'm 16 weeks today and I'm pretty humorless about being sick constantly. Well, that's not true- I make inappropriate jokes all the time to make myself feel better, but out of patience is definitely correct.

Cathy, have loved all your last few posts about heartbeat and drinking kombucha- very informative. I have definitely had it while nursing, but I don't drink it regularly.

My next appointment is Wed. I have heard heartbeat twice, but looking forward to the third!

Jacksonmom, also love the wrap in your photo. I am very unknowledgeable about wraps. I have a Moby that I wore constantly with DS until about 3 mos and then I switched to Ergo. It was only lately I found out how many kinds of wraps there even are. I'm sure there's a mothering forum about babywearing that explains all the wraps, right?

I'm 13 weeks today! it looks like I'm going to get offered a 6 mos contract position! I haven't told them I'm preg, but will after I get formal offer. I briefly talked w an employment lawyer today, and she suggested that being upfront once all is said n done is best practice. I felt horrid this morning, but got involved in a project which distracted me. I craved hot tamales all day, but was too lazy to go to car to fetch my half eaten box. Also found out that there is a pyromaniac homeless guy camping on our back porch! Unacceptable! Sent off firm email to landlord demanding speedy resolution! I think there is a correlation between my rage n preg? or maybe just my boredom.

Will visit grandmother on Wednesday or maybe for dinner tomorrow. All of these sad grand parent passing away here are so upsetting.

Cardigan, I'm craving cinnamon candies, too! I just realized it while reading your post, though. :-) I've been picking the red/yellow Jelly Bellies out of the carton we have all week!

We heard it, we heard it!  165 bpm!  Baby was very sneaky at first and then finally sat still for a good long listen.  :)

 

Much Facebooking ensued.  lol.gif

 

Hurray for the good news, Askew!

Well, I think the main difference between wraps is the give of the fabric.  A Moby is a knit, so it stretches.  Some people find them more comfortable when baby is new.  The Storch wraps are made in Germany, by a textiles company that weaves the fabric for the wraps.  I spent all of pregnancy number 4 buying fabrics that mimic the movement of the storch - no luck.  It's strong, but gives...very strange.  I have big babies - ds was 9lbs, dd5 was over 10...so stretchy wraps make my back hurt after a little while.  

 

You tube was my best friend when we first started wrapping.

Yay askew and GISDiva!!!  So happy for y'all!!

 

 

Jacksonmom - I will have to look into those.  All my babes are big too.  This might be the wrap for me.
