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.
Wow! what an awesome way to get even more excited about your baby
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.
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!
Katie 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 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 and wishing you all a fantastic day!!
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!
