Thanks for the well wishes everyone! I still haven't caught up to last weeks thread, but I'm working on it!
Shannon: Your HcG levels sound great! I will keep sending you
Glitterbits: I second most of what's already been said re: your friend. Let her know that you are there for her, maybe take her a meal or offer to help out with some chores in the days after. Let her know that you know that this has been a hard decision, but that she is doing the best that she can given the situation. It is possible to feel sad about her decision, even if she feels it is the right thing to do. Mostly, just listen. Take her lead regarding language. If she calls it a "baby" than definitely refer to what she has lost that way. If she uses terms like "fetus" or "pregnancy" then stick to those.
She is lucky to have a friend like you. Make sure you take care of yourself too.
Fairymama: I'm KHA for you! With dd I had no symptoms at all until I was close to 7 weeks, you never know. Yesterday I felt like I was about to start AF at any second: cramps, bloating the whole enchilada, so you never know...I bet your dd's recital was adorable.
Periwinkle: KHA for you too! See what I said about symptoms above! I never got a spike. I didn't temp this morning, but if you look at my chart, there is nothing remarkable about it at all (unlike Adina's chart, BTW which looks awesome and which I will continue to stalk!)
Marie-C: I hear you on the timing. I also work in a school. We start back in the beginning of August though...argh, a little early for me, but it shoud correspond nicely with the end of the 1st trimester.
Oh and Hev! I am shocked about the origin of your name! Here I am picturing you dressed in black, listening to the Smiths, you know, a real "Heavy Soul" and come to find out your named after a shoe! Cool, you are much less intimidating now
I know I haven't gotten everyone, but I am off to bed. I will be lurking around here folks if that's ok. It sucked to have to unsubscribe from the August Mamas thread when I had the m/c in Feb, so I don't know if I'm ready to start hanging out in "I'm Pregnant" just yet. Besides, I'd miss the fun over here! There's much better GIO talk here!
Of course you'll all be pg soon anyway, and then we can take over the "I'm Pregnant" board!
