Did everyone stay up last night? I did, but by 12:10 I was in bed with both (well I guess all 3) of my babies!
January Chit Chat
ha. we put on Superman (my husband ran out and rented it) and i was asleep before the end!
can't remember the last time i saw a New Year's Eve/New Year's ANYTHING!
our church had a 'Ball' and my girls were very sad mama wasn't going anywhere. husband even offered to let me go out solo. but anything after 8:30 just isn't worth it to me.

Can I jump in? I'm Jenna, and I'm due around August 23. It's baby #6.
And, I didn't mean to stay up, but I did. And our neighbors let off some HUGE fireworks which woke up my 1 year old. So, it was quite late when I finally got back to sleep. And, we've had the flu (or something?) and have all been so miserable we skipped Christmas. I think, maybe, we are ready to go for it in the morning. Ds is pretty grumpy today, off and on, so I'm worried he'll be sick soon. He hasn't had it yet.
feeling heavy and sad today.
a friend of two of my dear friends lost her 5 month old pregnancy last week. her second late loss.
and today my friend lost her LO she wasn't aware she was pregnant w/ yet- and it was so bad bleeding-wise she needed a blood transfusion and is not doing well.
kinda kicking my still-not-pregnant feeling butt into worried overdrive.
I feel so pukey today. We're driving all day from Michigan to see friends in Minnesota. I've had to have the window down three times in 2 hrs because I almost tossed my cookies! I have NEVER had this much nausea before! This isn't fun - I have more sympathy for those mamas that really struggle.
i don't know. my friends are discreet, but since i counsel and work w/ infertility they brought it up (independently of each other) they asked if they could pass on my info and maybe help support her.
it just breaks my heart! my losses have been so early, but even on thanksgiving a friend swung by and she was still bleeding from her 7 week miscarriage, and i was so sad from that b/c i suspected i was pregnant that week......
i always get scared b/c so many of my friends w/ repeated miscarriages have unresolved health issues (and so many have gluten intolerance- http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2000/08/06/wheat-miscarriage.aspx, http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art18391.asp, http://www.easy-immune-health.com/gluten-sensitivity-and-miscarriages.html.)
and w/ my history of infertility up until being really gluten-free and detoxed and undergoing lots of healing that took 3 years before i COULD conceive, it's really scary to me that i might be still damaged enough to undergo such a major loss.....
I already feel better, physically, and my spotting seems to have instantly stopped.
Please send out sticky vibes and prayers for a healthy pregnancy.
I have my first midwife prenatal with ultrasound this Weds. I'm petrified. I think I'm around 9 wks, but could be 7 or even 13 for all I know, as I was on the pill and when I'm not I ovulate randomly. The last time I had an ultrasound it showed a missed miscarriage ... I had thought I was pregnant still for two weeks after the loss of the embryo. Knowing that it's possible to have no bleeding or change in symptoms and have lost the pregnancy shakes my confidence terribly. So I'm scared of the appointment.
DD1 (eight) figured it out this week. She's old enough to remember the miscarriage, and understand why we aren't telling yet.
I'm also terrified about work. A colleague bought our practice a few years ago, and she's making a ton of changes in policy ... including there being no written maternity leave policy (which I'm guessing means I will get accrued pto and such time and nothing more .... and that stinks). When I lost the 2010 pregnancy, I was going to have 10 weeks at home. The idea of going from that to four or five breaks my heart.
