i actually think my baby was big because my husband is big. but whatev.


my favorite current toddler pronunciations are:
soo-sac (music). i want to listen to the soo-sac
and another one i can't think of right now. but it will come to me
OOooooh congratulations. (I'm still getting a feel for who's pg and who's trying etc OK, the GD test - how big was yer last baby?? My most recent was 10 lbs 9 oz., I've always been GD-. Or did you actually have GD last time? I just wonder b/c I know the GD test is only accurate in a short window - I think it's 26-29 weeks but I'd have to look it up. I wouldn't want to take a test that was invalid by definition.

EL, you have to let us know asap tomorrow after you poas.
I am very anxious about the election... I guess Jacquie and I are twin election dorks.
So much : for Emmalola!

I too am anxious about the election. I know a lot of people who chose to vote absentee because they were worried about the electronic voting. But I'm just as worried about the counting of an inordinate number of absentee ballots, KWIM? Uuuuugggghhhhh.

I'll leave you all with that visual.
Thanks : I'll just have to imagine pastries strapped to my a$$ from now on.

jstar, x-posted. I think that much testing is ludicrous. But I am a SERIOUS needlephobe, so keep that in mind. The 3-hr GD test almost killed me - much worse than labor IMO.

move to oregon! i think we are still the only state with ALL vote by mail.

jstar: the testing for glucose tolerance at this early stage seems a little off to me... doug is tall and quite built, and i, too, think that's why isaac was big. and we all know you make cream and not just milk, given isaac's height and general all around bigness, so you need those pastries, goshdarnit!

els: pastries taped on the buttcheeks... :

juice: a rundown of the pregnant may mamas:
most recently not pregnant a second time after giving birth in mid-sept: me
due next: A&L+1's partner due in january, fiddlefern in february, jstar in early june
currently trying: Jacqueline (aka Jacquie) and emmalola
most fertile city for may mamas: portland, oregon, where 3 of the 4 may mamas living here have or are expecting a second baby. (not really the most fertile city, just the highest number of may mamas living in the same city, with the bay area coming in next with 3 may mamas)

off to finish my vote by mail ballot...

AND you aren't allowed to pump your own gas!! At least last time I was there. I was up from NM, on my way to Seattle, and I stopped at some out-of-the-way station and tried to just Fill'er Up. This guy came RUNNING out of the station, waving his arms, yelling, "You can't do that here!!!" I thought I was gonna get shot. Then eventually he told me Oregon was all Full-Serve, which made a lot more sense than what I'd been thinking.

Thanks for the MMF expectancy rundown. Don't think I won't be referencing that post for the next few months!

ok there were some other things that rubbed me wrong at my visit today but it might be more appropriate for the yg. but after talking to my coworkers i think my bad vibes are pretty justified. so maybe i won't be going back. or at least voicing my concerns at the next appointment and THEN not going back if i'm not satisfied. i think maybe i should have just stuck with my ob.

i didn't know the gd test wouldn't be accurate this early. thanks for the info miss juice
post #86 of 380
um, so, I don't have access to the YG yet... am I cool enough for someone to PM me with that?
post #87 of 380
Um, I dunnoooooo....
TurboClaudia knows the scoop.

JuicyJones I am just dying to see a photo of thine countenance. I can't imagine the goofy girl behind your words.

Elsanne, you kill me. Don't think I haven't noticed you never call me the same thing twice. A while ago my DH had to ask me, "Why does our google window say 'penis synonym'?"
post #89 of 380
since elsanne has vouched for your ever-so-coolness, i sent you a pm with yg info, juice. :

so if you are lying, els, then i shall have to send you to the vegan nunnery for some new training.

(while coughing and hacking--laughing makes me cough.

You all are a riot! Miss Juice, welcome to the party, for reals.
Now, it's time to down some NyQuil and go to BED.
(I know, the vegan nuns will slap my wrist, but damn, I love me some NyQuil when I'm really sick; during my pregnancy I got at least one bad cold (PG in NEw England wintertime, wheeee! I slipped on ice I remember, too!) and I have a recollection of going into the bathroom at 2am, opening the medicine cabinet, and sighing with longing over the bottle of NyQuil I COULD NOT TAKE. :
Hah.

Have a great night, mamas. Hope the poas works out magically, EL!

Aww, Elsanne, I NEED to find a bellydance class out here. Even with a pastry strapped to my butt. Mmmm, pastries.
I have a bumper sticker that says, "Does my fat a$$ make my a$$ look fat?" : Ahem, sorry. That might not have been appropriate.
Soooooo......siiiiiicccck......:
post #92 of 380
My M M's always cheer me up!
post #93 of 380
Renae, so sorry you are sicky poo. I love your bumper sticker!!! And bellydance is beautifully executed with a few kilos extra on one's hide. There is a reason it's called BELLYdance.

Jacqueline, your M & Ms always cheer me up too. I mean, mine. Yes, I know you meant MayMamas but with all this pastry talk, it got me to thinking about M & Ms...

jstar, i have never heard of the glucose screen being done that early, but I will sniff around a little. Who are you seeing?

I am worried about the election, too but trying not to agonize. I am really anxious about the measure here in Oregon about mandatory parental notification for teenagers seeking an abortion. Sigh.

Dude. I ate a cheese danish this afternoon and then came home to read about that very thing strapped to my a$$. Thanks a freakin' lot, kids. : Just pile on the guilt, will ya.

I have a 12-hour school day tomorrow due to a loverly 6-9 pm lab. Yuckity yuck yuck.

Renae, I hope you feel better. And I hope you don't give it to me. The last thing we need right now is a cold. Sleep has been sucky lately all by itself, thank you.

OK must.go.to.sleep while I can, i.e., while Lily is asleep and before she wakes up and whimpers for the first time of the night...sigh.
post #95 of 380
oh nuggets, i'm so glad you're back in the fray... i missed you.

renae: healthy vibes coming your way...

els: will begin the search for the appropriate vegan nunnery for you: no kids, bellydancing classes included, and personality evaluation classes to teach you how to find the secret may mamas hidden inside everyone...

eating my mom's homemade apple cake and drinking tea... :

and imagining this pastry glued to my a$$

Caution: shameless political statement, Republicans ignore.

Dems win House! w00t! Yayayayayayay!

Ok, sorry, back to your regularly scheduled program.
post #97 of 380
You mamas crack me up.

Jstar, I read the YG stuff 1st, and now after coming here, I gotta say DROP that woman. She may be a good midwife, but she is not a good midwife for you. For whatever reason, she's being hyper-managing-controlling-worrying. Just because someone has midwife training doesn't mean that they actually trust women and their pregnancy/birth process. I definitely found that out by seeing a diff midwife for almost every appt last preg. I picked the one I liked best this time, and it has made a huge difference. I feel that my current midwife trusts that everything is going well unless there is good reason to be concerned.

If you trust your old ob, it doesn't matter that he's male or that his title isn't midwife. If he trusts in you in and in your process of making a baby, then all is good.

OH, ye gawds. I sent in my ballot yesterday. I hope it counts. You should have seen it: literally covered with toddler scrawls in different color sharpie pens--the whole big green envelope. I hope they will count it. Hope it's not too late. It was kind of a classic mommy ballot--late, and covered in kid scrawl.

Hi all! I tested this morning- negative. Since my period is a little late, I'm still hopefully, but given the data, this is probably not the month. disappointed, a little sad, discouraged, yes. tired because that's all I could think about last night, yes. moving on? yes. just waiting for AF to rear her head so we can start again. sigh. thanks for all your good thoughts my way!
