He was convincing kids to jump on the sofa, run down the hall where they were out of their parents sight, and pull things off the tables. It was really funny, actually.
I know that child... two of them, really, Chibi is the same way. They just get more creative as they get older...

So I've started pumping milk again because sometimes Bella wants to nurse and I just can't do it anymore (she still breaks suction a lot). Every time BooBah sees me pumping, she asks, "You need to nurse?" and then she runs off to wake her sister up! : I have no idea how to explain to her that yes, I need to get the milk out but no, I don't need to wake Bella and nurse her when she's already got a full belly and she's sleeping as comfortably as she ever does. Any thoughts?

Terrific pictures, QoC! You are looking great. Check out those cheekbones!

So, after all my whining we had an absolutely wonderful day yesterday. Poor R was really tired from no nap but she had a blast with my family, and, I keep forgetting how nice it is to have more adults around to help entertain her and chase her. My mom cried when I gave her her present--a coffee cup with this picture on it that says "Grandma's Coffee." DH fixed me a nice dinner and I had a glass of wine (paying for it too today, what a lightweight I am!) Hope everyone else had a nice day.

ugh. I have horrible food poisoning. I'm pretty sure I won't die now, but I wasn't sure earlier. Killy threw up once during the night and then was fine all day. I spent all afternoon vomitting and having diarhea. I literally feel like I was put through the ringer. The culprit? Tuna Salad from WHOLE FOODS - I feel so betrayed.

Anyone have any tips for bouncing back from this? I'm finally able to hold down water and I kept down one graham cracker, but that's it so far.

Oh, Queenie

My only suggestion is to make sure your body salts get replenished. I always crave V-8 juice when I finish a puking spree...

Queenie- Food poisoning sucks!! The last time I had it I ended up in the ER for fluids and a shot to stop the vomiting, I had thrown up for an hour non-stop and I was in a lot of pain. Hope you're feeling better soon!!

Oh I'm so jealous that you're done with the teething, Queenie. Nadia was a very late teether. She cut her first tooth at 14 months so we're paying for the extra months of gummy grins with constant teething now. She cut her first incisor this past weekend and kept saying,"mommy, toof hurts!" I felt so bad for her.

I had food poisoning once and I thought I was pregnant I hope you get to feeling better soon.

How does one clip an infant tongue? I've never heard of it being done at home. (I'm sheltered.)

OK, get this. I sat down to pee this evening and POP! and a twinge of pain.

No big gush, no big contrax since then, but I was not hallucinating. A person does not hallucinate a POP! sound.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaauuuuuuuuuugh. So. frustrating.

that's how it began for me and less than 24 hours later....after only 4 1/2 hours of labor....my guy was here!!!!

Smithie, well, with that kind of report I'll bet we see a post from you tomorrow announcing a baby! You are handling the waiting very gracefully, I'd be cursing the universe if I were in your shoes...

Erin, good to see you posting.

Queenie, hope you are on the mend. That stuff always wipes me out for weeks afterwards...

Well, here I am, pregnant still. I have a regularly scheduled prenatal (39 weeks, yay!) today so she can check for traces of amniotic fluid. I tend to think that the infection risk remains quite low for a long time in most cases, so I'm not too concerned.

I'm supposed to go on a 4-mile walk today with my MOMS club. I feel pretty good this morning, so I think we'll do it.

Smithie-- I'm so excited for you!

Heather-- After we washed and sterilized a pair of (unused, sharp) nail scissors, Mike held Bella's head and body still on the bed. She opened her mouth to have a mild wahwah, and when she did I zipped in with the scissors and snipped her frenulum (the thin bit of flesh/membrane that holds your tongue to the bottom of your mouth). Bella's came all the way to the tip of her tongue before, which prevented her from latching on to my breast properly. Now she "clicks" because she's formed a bad habit; I have to find a way to teach her to keep her tongue over her lower gums while she nurses, because a) it's too painful and b) it means we have to nurse often and for a very long time, because she doesn't get enough milk that way.

My nipples are killing me, and the other tooth that needs a root canal is starting to get really bad. I've also got a new tooth that's hurting a lot more than it did, and if I don't get to the dentist within the next week or so (and I won't ) it'll probably need a root canal, too. Fantastic. Thus far, I've managed to avoid taking any painkillers at all. I'm not sure how much longer I can hold out, though.

Smithie - good luck! You're in my thoughts!

Ugh. I'm still recovering. I lost 2-3 lbs when I was sick on Monday and am just feeling super weak, tired, and still a bit queasy at the idea of food. And now MIL is sick!
post #235 of 272
Thanks for all the good vibes! Still pregnant, very uncomfortable today, mw appt at 5:30. I hope she strips my membranes with a jackhammer. Chiro said I look pretty good, though, just a slight skewed tailbone which he popped back into place.

Rynna, this teeth thing is verging on the ridiculous. I am so distressed on your behalf. I went five years without dental care in college/grad school, it is just absolutely obscene how health insurance doesn't cover it. AND WHERE'S OUR FLIPPING NATIONAL HEALTH PLAN ALREADY? : : :

Amen!

Healthy, easy labor vibes!

Well, I'm assuming next time we hear from Smithie, she'll have some big news for us!

I was thinking about starting a May thread for us, but at this point I think it's a little too late!
post #238 of 272
Well, I do have big news, but not a birth announcement.

We're going to induce tomorrow! I must have looked like total crap at my 39-week appt., because my midwife said "it's time" and is coming over in the morning to do an amniotomy. She says that I will probably walk up the stairs and have a baby. Apparently everything is really ripe down there.

I am so relieved. I REALLY wanted to give birth with this mw, and she goes off call on Monday. Huge weight off my mind.

So today, I'm getting a manicure, a pedicure and the van shampooed while James spends 3 hours in the superfun daycare at the overpriced gym we used to belong to (nonmembers can use their daycare while getting services at their salon). Then we're picking up dh and going to James' 2-year WCC with his new doctor, an awesome naturopath. Then I should be all set!
post #239 of 272
Good luck, Smithie! I'll be thinking about you and wishing you a quick, pleasant and healthy birth!
post #240 of 272
Good luck Smithie!

Susan, maybe just a June thread? Perhaps when those 2 yr birthdays roll around we'll be chatty again?
