I'll be the first...hey new smiles :horse1 :horse2
hmmmm....

Anyway - hope everyone's having a good weekend. Hope this week brings happy goodbye's to the nausea some of us are still suffering! (Shannon - )

I've been sorting out some of my cd research - it's slowly starting to make sense, and I hope to contact some local wahm companies soon. I'm reeeeally looking forward to leaving on vacation on Friday - hope I get everything wrapped up at work (yikes!)!

Out to shop for a pregancy journal, and maybe a new fleece for my trip...! (alas, no, my holiday will not be tropical, and I was warned the weather has turned fall-ish in Halifax...)

Nice to see that we're all moving into our second trimester! I hope that means the barf-fest is over for everyone! Shannon, how are you? Recovering from the bug? Ekblad, any m/s still? Is it getting easier? Heve, thanks for staring the new thread. After the week of hell is over, and hopefully the news is good, I will ask you about Cloth diapers, and who to buy from.

I appreciate all the kind thoughts and amazing support I've gotten from everyone lately. I honestly don't know what I would have done without you this weekend, with dh gone.

Tuesday is right around the corner, and I'm getting nervous. I'll let you all know how the procedure goes, and what they say during the level 2 u/s.

I also just discovered that my dd sleeps so soundly during her nap that I can clean her ears and wash her face without waking her up! This is so amazing, considering she screams like a banshee if water goes anywhere higher than her neck. Now if i could only figure out how to wash her hair while she sleeps....

Oh sure, post a new thread and don't tell the old thread!!!
I just left a big post over there, so you will all have to go read it there!!!!
Lesley, I'll definitely be thinking of you on Tuesday (and before that)

Subscribing! Just got back from sunny CA. What an awesome place. I want to live there! Anyway, I'm way behind on threads around here! I hope you're all well.

Good Morning!

Morning, mamas! I haven't been around much lately. Well, I've been lurking. I just don't have a whole lot going on as far as the pregnancy goes. I have felt some movement! That was my favorite thing about my 1st pregnancy, so I was thrilled, still am.
I never thought about keeping a pregnancy journal. That is such a great idea! I've never been a very good journaler, but I would like to keep a record of what's happening to my body and how our lives change between now and February.

Best of luck tomorrow, Lesley! I was so surprised to read that your insurance denied your amnio claim. I didn't realize they could do that for prenatal tests. That's messed up.

Have a great day everybody!

I didn't have much luck - there were about 4 different ones there, but none of them suited my needs. They had something like one line in which to write things. I want the tidbits, like where things are at the various stages, but with enough room to truly journal, not just put in weight, etc...The Sears Pregnancy book has room for pasting a photo, and some info, but only once for every month, and the book is far too dense and thick to use as a journal...besides, I may use it again, or lend it to a friend some day...also, some of them were a bit too "medical" for my liking...the quest continues...I'll have to create my own!

Heveasoul, have you checked out Chapters yet?? I was in the one in Oakville and they had a bunch that were more like diaries, sounded like what you are looking for. They should have them at the one in Guelph.
Seem to be feeling better today. Haven't bothered with my morning gravol yet and I even had a bowl of cereal. Have to finish cleaning this house today, it has just gotten so far behind that the catch up work is very daunting. First though I have to kick this fat cat outside, he's been sitting on his table eating for over an hour, now his bowl is empty so he keeps digging his claws into my shoulder to get me to fill it again-that ain't gonna happen!

Hi everyone! We've been up to our eyeballs in moving. We should be finished getting everything over to the new house today, then the fun starts with cleaning the old house Like I said before, my internet service will be out for about a week (hopefully it will be connected by Friday) so I won't be on. Hope everyone has a great one! Take care!

I've been so busy lately I've hardly been able to keep up with the posts. Gareth turned three Friday. We had his party yesterday. Today we have a real estate agent coming to look at the house. So much is happening We are thinking of moving to the Northwest and Thinking it might happen soon . I'm feeling great. I don't feel preg right now. I know that I am but I have lots of energy. I've got to run and finish cleaning the house.

Hi all, glad to see that everyone is feeling good.
I just came back from the ultrasound appt to check the cyst on my ovary, but it's gone!!!Yay, so glad. I didn't want to have to go every 2 weeks for an ultrasound.
But saying that, myself and dd got to see the baby, who is nearly 8cm and is measuring just fine. The hb was 155, and he/she was kicking their little legs around like crazy. It just seems so bizarre that someting is moving around like that inside you, and I can't feel it yet. Hopefully soon though! Can't wait for that feeling again.
Lesley good luck for tomorrow, will be thinking of you.

post #15 of 105
OMG!!! Hevea, thanks for saying so, I'll go check it right now right. I can't believe it! I'm I'm so happy for her!!!!

post #16 of 105
OMG for Adina going over there right now!
post #17 of 105
Hi Everyone!! Congrats to Adina! I don't know her but it sounds like a wonderful event!!

I am feeling good. I am still tired but other than that I feel good. I need to schedule another appt. with my midwife this week.

I was wondering if anyone knows of any good yoga or pilates (pregnancy) videos. I am needing something. I need to be excercising more.

Anyway, gotta run. The house is a MESS! I have got to get caught up!! It is driving me crazy!!
post #18 of 105
Good luck with your move, Mama2Chloe! I don't envy you. I hate moving. Good thing you're feeling good, though.

Yay for Adina!


ella-makes-3~ Question. This is probably something I should know. When you say the baby measures 8cm...what does cm stand for? I think "centimeters", but our babies are much bigger than that by now. I've been going by inches. So glad your cyst is gone!

Lots of good news today! And on a Monday. Strange. Wonderful, but strange!

I just met my new midwife and I absolutely love her! The lady I planned on using will be out of the state in Feb., so she introduced me to someone she thinks highly enough to recommend. I am so so pleased with her. She is exactly what I was looking for. I'm so excited about that.

Now I'm off to start a thread in the pregnancy section. My hooha hurts.
post #19 of 105
Tracie, I assume she means centimeters and that she's also talking crown to rump length which 8 cm is pretty much accurate within a few cm depending on how many weeks one is.
I'm so jazzed about Adina, I was in tears most of the afternoon!!
post #20 of 105
Hi, guys, I'm actually getting a post in before the thread gets to be several pages long! I thought I was feeling better after prenatal yoga on Saturday, but then the nausea came back. Ugh. Poor Shannon, it's nowhere near what she's going through.

I felt the baby move for the first time on Friday! I'm 15 weeks, so it's a little early, but I know some moms who say they can feel the baby even earlier. There was one gigantic kick or something then a few smaller movements and that was it. I haven't felt anything since then, but it did reassure me a little. My midwife is coming out tomorrow; hopefully we'll be able to hear the heartbeat this time.

I hope everyone starts to feel better soon!
