hugs, Sabbath. It's nearly true for me, and is for each pregnancy. I don't know what's "normal." We usually can pull off 2-3 x during pregnancy, but nothing for at least 6 mos after. It was a major problem for us the first two times but I think we are settled into the expectations now. I just don't think we'll be more than monthly until the kids are all over 2-3. PM me if you want to talk more, or email.

I had one about the size of a dime on my heel as a child, and had it cut out. I will be honest - the numbing needle in my foot was the worst pain I'd ever felt in my life until labor. I'd really go out of my way to avoid ever having that again.

Cori - your letter sounds great! I'd say give them permission to publish it. Please let us know what kind of editing is done!

I completely agree! I think having it dug out without the numbing would have been less painful.

well, i thought i was going to catch up on posts and then respond, but i don't think that's in the cards ... so i'll just pick up as best i can.

penises - don't know where this conversation started, but i'm surrounded by them. even the cats here have them! egads. well, there is one old (19 year old) cat who has been with me since she was 6 months, but otherwise, everyone here has a penis. i'm beginning to feel out of the loop.

dtd - tough topic around here. even the part about needing dh to initiate and him not being an initiator ... we have issues even without the pregnancy & post-partum jitters. i'm very sad about it these days, actually. (((hugs)))) to anyone else going through it.

cori - nice letter! i stopped reading magazines that had the articles that pissed me off. gift subscriptions went from the mailbox to the recycling bin ... now, i think, i'm ready to start writing letters to the editor, but up until now, i just had to ignore them or i'd make myself crazy. kudos to you for staying active about letter-writing!

Cori, wootie woot woot about the letter you wrote. Very eloquent and interesting and sane! I think their readers will get a lot out of your thoughtful contribution.

Well, dh is putting the two older dc to bed. So nice to have him home. Ds and I made a sign that said "Welcome Home Daddy" in kindergarten manuscript. Ds is so proud that he can write now. We made it out of neon orange posterboard. He drew pictures and signed his name. I drew pictures and signed the dd's names. He carried it through the airport and we were meeting dh at baggage claim. He made so many people smile carrying his sign through the airport. One couple even stopped (older, yuppie looking couple) their rushed walk to tell him they thought his sign was cool.

Daddy saw it a mile away and had a huge smile on his face. You just can't miss a five yo holding a neon sign at the airport. I almost cried when dh saw the sign from far away. It was so cool. And so simple at the same time. We love Daddy.

Alright, ladies. Now that the mushy stuff is done. Dh must've heard all this talk about "penis" again, because I think he wants to DTD. The making out in the closet when we were changing clothes is what gave it away. Why is the first DTD after birth so, I don't know, nerve wracking?

Sue, cute pics!

Sabbath, welcome back! Glad to hear you survived the plane trip with the little one. I got so panicky traveling with my kids... thinking they'd throw a fit or scream the entire way or have a gigantic poop blowout... all went well though. Actually we had a poop blowout but it was all over me so at least I didn't ruin any plane seats. We had a few compliments from people around us on how quiet and good the kiddos were but they waited until they were walking off the plane

Thanks for the advice on bottles and nipples. I still have yet to introduce either... maybe I'll pump a nice fresh bottle and see if DH can get her to take it...

A friend of mine calls it a va-jayjay. So her daughter runs around saying I have a vajayjay! all the time

I hate to bring it back to Scrubs, but speaking of penises I saw a good bit of anti-circ tonight on the comedy central reruns. Dr. Cox is complaining that his wife Jordan gets to make all the decisions, which is why their son will be asking why daddy's penis doesn't have a turtleneck like his... yes he was complaining, but his wife made a good decision!

For the record, there is no on or off topic... this is a DDC-forum-in-a-thread. Sounds like bed-in-a-bag. I wonder if you can buy a DDC-forum-in-a-thread at Bed Bath N Beyond? :

Anyhoo, next time someone comments on your boobs call them a perv. Or say they are quite full and ask if they'd like to feel them (you must be deadly serious in delivery, and you must be absolutely certain that they wouldn't agree enthusiastically )

Loved your response! I used to get that magazine but the articles seemed so mainstream that I finally dumped it in disgust. That was over 2 year ago though. How is it now?

It's weird - we have this awesome mother's room at work where I go to pump. I keep finding Parents' magazine there. You'd think pumping at work and this publication would be incompatible... so just in case they are and it's going to convince anyone to stop pumping I throw the magazine in the trash and dump liquid all over it : Maybe I'll put a copy of the No-Cry Sleep Solution in there to replace it

Hey Elsanne, who DDDDC'd you?!?! I must have missed it cuz I'm adhering to a pretty strict drug, uh, regimen to keep my mind, you know, uh, limber

Nice stash Sabbath!

i thought i lost you all!!! I'm so glad that i found this thread again.


Well, let's see. DD3 is getting big and beautiful by the day. This past wednesday, she got weighted. She now weights 15lbs and 6oz with a disp dipe(i didn't have cds, they were all dirty), and her height is 25inches and 1/4.

She is smiling and interacting more with us. She started to make lots of sounds, trying to talk to us. My olders girls just adore her and wants to care for her, even try to nurse her too.

I need to catch up with everyone. bbl

Hey Quag,
I don't know who ddddc'd me....oh wait a minute... yes I do. One of the gals from my dd1's group (the maymamaforever group). Last week I had some serious Lebowski moments, I think one was recorded in my blog (me saying to my 2 yo when she was hitting me: "This aggression will not stand, man!"). I just adore that flick.

Stay off that drug regimen, Quag, or else your mind will be so limber you might lose that rug that really ties the room together.

you need to post them into an internet photo or online storage spot, such as yahoo photo's, snapfish, imagebucket ect. And then they give you URL's or links to those photo's. Then it's just copy and paste the URL into your blog posting!

A lot of people here use imagebucket:

http://www.imagebucket.net/bucket/


But I like imageshack

www.imageshack.us

Both have unlimited storage for free which is pretty rare.

Sign up with one of them, make sure you save the images from your email onto your harddrive, or download them onto your computer, and upload them to one of these two sites. Then, like I said, just get the URL, they will help you with that, and then copy and paste! Voila!

Ok I think I have this figured out. I couldn't be there when the pictures were taken , they had to wake her up from her nap and at 9 weeks only mommy could get smiles from her, but here are pictures of Kiana Taylor at 9 weeks old...
