Whats bubble water, Katie?

Glad you have had a good visit with your mom. Hopefully some day I'll get to do that with my daughters. joy.gif

Lol. It's what's my kids call the water I make with my soda stream. Basically homemade seltzer.

My BF had her baby this morning!! So
Excited that I can't go back to sleep! Lol. Can't wait for my little squishy one!

Wow!  what an awesome way to get even more excited about your baby joy.gif

 

Sparkle, I agree about going to the hospital that you are more comfortable with; I mean, what are the chances that the OB that you have will actually deliver your baby?  Meaning, are they part of a practice?

 

The Farm?!  So cool!

 

I know nothing about chamomile tea so I cannot be helpful with that.  I do have a pregnancy tea and then a ginger with tumeric tea to help with nausea.  But it makes me throw up.  Go figure. 

 

A student the other day gave me a huge hug and told  me that I've looked awful the past couple of weeks.  Rundown and sick.  Um...thank you?!  :)  I love this student so it was not a big deal and the truth is she's right.  I can barely find a new clean pair of underwear to put on every day.  But when I do I feel like I've accomplished a LOT. 

 

I told my dear friend who is ahead of us on the adoption track.  i don't know w hy I was nervous about telling her as she's thrilled for us.  She also told me to "strike while the iron is hot" since DH told me that he definitely has room in his heart for four kids.  I don't know that I can fathom four kids right now.  I never thought I'd have two much  less three and I just need to wrap my head around four.

thanks for that, onemore! I'm having a hard time because after a while I find water SO boring, but I'll try that in this glas jar I use for sun tea.

Ugh. The nausea has kicked in in full force over here. Sucks! But does make me reassured I guess. I got called into work last night (after totally forgetting I was on call! Lol. I got a text that someone was sick and I thought, why are they telling me! Haha) and I spent the whole shift sucking on lemon and peppermint candies. I made it but I was all sorts of crabby. So glad I don't work clinically for a couple of weeks. I really wanted to take a peek with the ultrasound since I was there but we were so busy there were no empty rooms! Oh well it's early anyhow and I would have been stressed if I hadn't seen a hb.

In other news I decided to call the Farm on Monday!! There is a new documentary out about the Farm and I'm a little afraid they are going to be getting overwhelmed with people wanting to deliver there so I want to get
There early. I have been reading lots of birth stories from there (including yours Hapersmion! So wonderful!) and I think I could really feel safe and comfortable there. I am excited to visit. It feels like going somewhere famous!! Lol.

My friend keeps texting me about newborn snuggles and soft skin. I can't wait!!

Ugh Katie me too greensad.gif these preggie pops are the only thing saving me today. It seems to be that the moment I get hungry I NEED to eat or else I am going to barf right then! I am probably going to need to keep food next to the bed so that I can keep the morning sickness at bay and actually get out of bed and go to work!

I thought I would bump this up because I needed to tell someone- I told my parents and they were sooo happy! I was so nervous to tell them because I thought they would be disappointed since we didn't wait until we're closer to home but they're just so excited!!! This all seems very very real now smile.gif

Aw, how exciting! So glad it went well.

I'm visiting my grandma who has severe dementia. The fun part is that I get to tell her I'm pregnant every couple hours and she gets all excited cause she doesn't remember the last time I told her.

That's so sweet smile.gif my mom called my grandma (her mom) but were not telling my dads mom because my grandpa (her husband) just passed away a few weeks ago and if anything, god forbid, were to happen I don't know if she could handle it. Let us know how telling your grandma goes smile.gif

We are telling the kids today. They love to jump around me and do flips over me and I feel if I just stop they might think of it as a negative instead of a positive.  I am afraid to tell a good friend who recently had a MC at 14 wks last month. It was her 2nd time TTC with IVF and they aren't trying again.

 

On a good note I am going to do some pp doula work for a friend who just had a baby 2wks ago. squishy!

Hmmm...I am trying to multi quote on my iPad. Not going well.

Katie, I love that you were surprised to be called. Cracks me up.

Jjh, yay for getting lots of excitement and support from your patents

Write on, giggling over your dementia comment. My Oma has advanced dementia, too, and I am a bit sad that she will not ever really know tat I am pregnant.

Meks, have fun telling the kids! Do you think they can keep it a secret? My kids use me as a trampoline, too, and I have felt some worry about that. Mine could not keep from telling the world!

hug2.gifKatie and Jjh, I totally feel you on the morning sickness, awful!! I've been pretty MIA due to m/s and just plain exhaustion. Just feeling pretty drained right now. But my Spring Break starts today, yeah!! The m/s seems to be getting better, slowly. I'm hopeful it will be mostly passed by the time I return to school. My U/S is the day after I go back (April 9) . I'm planning to officially announce to my students the following day. My family is convinced we have twins so I will be glad to know, either way, April 9. Writeon smile.gif Even though it's obviously sad, I'll bet that's pretty fun to have her get so excited. My grandma had advanced dementia when I was pregnant with DD. I actually had to stop going to visit her because she thought I was a teenager and was so distressed and worried about who was going to take care of my baby. Starfish My DD doesn't use me as a trampoline anymore but is a big hugger/squeezer. She's been so very delicate and careful with her hugs now that she knows we're having a baby. She can't wait to high five the baby through my belly (a friend told her she did that with her baby brother) and constantly wants to put her ear on my belly to listen, just in case she could hear something.

 

Sending everyone lots of coolshine.gif and wishing you all a fantastic day!!

Hi, I'm Emma. This will be baby #3 for DH and I. DS is 7 and DD is 4. This cycle marks three years that we'd been trying for baby #3. We'd actually given up and stopped trying before Christmas. I had been feeling off (slightly nauseous, boobs felt full, bloated, etc) for a week or two, so I picked up a test, fully expecting it to be neg. I was positive I was going to get AF any day. Well, I was wrong. orngbiggrin.gif

We have a boy and a girl, and I don't really care either way what we have next. I'm guessing my EDD is around Thanksgiving, although I'm not sure since my cycles are super wacky.

I don't know where to post! My LMP EDD is Oct 28th, my ultrasound EDD is Nov 4th. Waiting on bloodwork to give us a better idea of where I actually am. Midwife did bloodwork to give us reassurance because I have about 0 symptoms and we can't see the baby with a belly ultrasound because I have a tilted uterus. I think I'll post on November. I'm reaalllyyy hoping for a Halloween baby though =)

They Are pretty good about asking who they can tell before they do.   We also told my inlaws and my mom, and sister. It is slowly leaking out into the world but that is okay with me. These are people I would tell if something happened anyway.  

 

They are now more gentle with me when playing and it is fun talking with them about it!

I went to my play group with DS this morning and spilled the beans that I'm preggo. They were all talking about birth centers and hospitals and choices when I walked in. I just couldn't help myself! I'm only barely 6 weeks and so bad at keeping secrets like this. And I wanted to ask about birth center recommendations since I'm new to the area.

You know, I also felt obligated to explain to the woman next to me who was nursing her toddler why I gave DS a pacifier when he asked to nurse. I wasn't able to conceive until he completely weaned a little over a month ago.

I hate feeling guilty about what I think other moms might be thinking about me for when I announce my pregnancy and when I wean my son. I tried to remember that my hormones are crazy and at least tried to take a chill pill about the whole thing.
