freckledmama, i cant believe the stress and suspense of this for you. i am so glad to hear you're not a CF carrier at least.
mamamash, im sorry about your LO. that sounds so awful !
vc - you sure have a lot on your plate. i hope your fiance helps you process and cope all the stuff you have to think through. two heads are better than one. our local thrift shops have maternity sections. i didn't find anything the last time i was there, but the inventory changes often so it's worth checking back because you can save some money if you can find stuff you like.
afm - it was sunny here today! in the gloomy pacific northwest, that is cause for celebration. we had an all-day staff retreat and i did some hiking up a steep hill, which nearly killed me, and some archery, which was really great. i am feeling pretty pregnant, but still delighting in the honeymoon of the second trimester. i have an OB appt tomorrow and i have to take the three-hour GD test on wednesday. i am not looking forward to EITHER ONE AT ALL. we have a consultation with a different OB next week and I am really hopeful that she will like us and we will like her and she will agree to take us on because she seems so much cooler and more in-line with our wishes than our current OB practice, which I have grown to hate. The icing on the cake is that this week I asked them for a recommendation for a "pregnancy-safe" expectorant/cough syrup. my allergies have been out of control since i went off the steroid nasal spray for pregnancy purposes. their response was that it is safe for me to go back on the steroid nasal spray. this made me DW upset because that drug have been shown to cause birth defects in animals and she couldn't believe they were recommending that i go back on it.
OK! I am going to go help clean the house. For real this time!
(I am not pulling my weight in household chores. I make up for it with exceptional gestating, I guess)
