Krystal! Congratulations!!!
post #22 of 56
I'm thinking you must be somewhere near me, mum4boys. We also don't have polling places anymore (a county in west.WA) so I voted a few weeks ago by absentee...crossing my fingers for a good outcome this election, though I'm getting sort of jaded (maybe even paranoid) at the way things have been going. Anyone else think we're being led to believe we have some voice when in all actuality voting is just a placebo? Ack, enough with the politics!

Things are going well here. I'll hit the wonderful 2nd trimester next week and I feel like I've already arrived! Yea!! My energy's up and I can almost swear I feel movement, but who knows. I'm looking forward to going back to the mw on the 27th to see how things are growing. I wonder if I'll still be measuring significantly ahead or not. We'll see!

Hugs and postive vibes to all (hang in there, Heidi)!

Keep your fingers crossed that my son is able to stay at school all day today. He was being a big time goofball about getting ready for school, and being stuborn about getting on the bus this morning. Yesterday he had to come home because of diarea issues. Grr..

Oops, more later, baby needs me.

Heidi--I am so sorry to read about your son. I hope and pray he gets better soon!

Well everyone is finally healthy here--YAY!!! Big news is that DH has an interview with a firm in TN this weekend. Its the place we would really like to move to and if he gets it, then he will have a job for when he is done with school. It would be for an internship next summer then turns full-time when you graduate from school. It would be a huge blessing to have a job waiting for us and he is only about half-way done. We are all going to go, which will be fun to get out of town for the weekend. The boys LOVE road trips.

My midwife apt. is Friday morning and I am so excited to hear the heartbeat! I will be 15 weeks tomorrow--this pg is just flying by for me! I am still feeling pretty good, though my appetite comes and goes. I played ultimate frisbee Sun. and whoah was I sore for the past couple days.

Kimberly, lucky you! that the pregnancy is flying by.
TN is so nice. Where in TN? I have lots of family in Chattanooga, and it is so pretty there. Great city. Also spent some summers in Memphis, which is fun but not where I'd want to raise a family.

what on earth does that mean?

Goldie, good luck for your son.
Heidi, I hope Johnny feels better today.

Krystal, oh, I hope it works out! It will, if it is meant to be. How do your kids feel about the new dude?

Prenatal yoga last night was fabulous. I love love love that class. It is so awesome. I get to be calm and bond with the new little baby. There are 12 minutes of relaxation in the dark. Ah, twelve minutes of moving and thinking as little as possible. Ah.

I'm so jealous! I didn't get to go to my prenatal yoga class last night. Just as I was walking out the door I got a phone call from my work asking me if I could come in for someone that wasn't feeling well. Well, I guess I should look on the bright side, I made $$ when I wasn't expecting to and I can still go to yoga on thursday.

If our brains are absent, that's a sign that our babies are going to be really smart.

Good that makes me feel better!

Then I am going to have a very smart baby! Guess it is true though, cause all my kids are very smart. Even ds is extremely smart behind his autism.

As a bummer he decided it would be a good idea to throw up all over his lunch tray at school. Dh thinks that he is allergic to school. Seriously, he isn't sniffling, he isn't coughing much, yesterday he did have some diarea, but he was acting just fine. He goes to school and all hell breaks loose! No idea what is going on with him, unless he just happened to eat something that didn't agree with his system. Poor kid can't really tell me either. And he obviously didn't catch the puke bug from me, cause ms isn't contagious.

I wanna cry. I am just feeling very off today. No, contrary to popular opinion around me, it has ZERO to do with the election. Today I just feel like crap. I have a nasty headache and I think that I might be getting another cold. I am going to stop now, cause I am not making any sense to myself. :
post #31 of 56
Woohoo! How exciting, I now really KNOW what Braxton Hick contraction feel like. How neat! Maybe not neat later, if they start to bug me, but neat right now! Am I weird?
post #32 of 56
No, not weird. but it's pretty early. If you're getting a lot of them this early, you probably have some nutritional deficiency, or something. I started taking Cal/Mag when I had oodles of them before 20 weeks. last preg.

I may have felt movement this morning, just a little flick. But it's super early, and it could have been organs moving around, so I won't count it. But it is still a nice feeling.
post #33 of 56
Nah, not lots, just right befor I posted that.... maybe once every couple of days. But that was the most distinguishable. My uterus is groooooooowing!
post #34 of 56
Had my first us this morning. Ive never had one before so it was really neat, except the having to pee so bad it hurt.
We got the date confirmed at May 25th and I am 11w5d along. I thought I was 12 weeks on Tues but I was close anyway.
Hearing the heartbeat and seeing the little bean move was amazing. It makes it so much more real to me now. Before it was just this idea that I was pg now I KNOW there is a tiny person in there because I saw him. The us guy even giggled my belly to get him to move and he was none to impressed about that. We got a good look at his bum, LOL
I got some great pics too.
Im so happy right now. Im even feeling better which is a huge blessing all in itself

Jessitron--the interview is in East TN...Greeneville. Its closer to Knoxville than Chattanooga. We would love to see Chattanooga someday. I am really trying to stay balanced about this interview. It would be great if he got it since it gurantees him a job for after school. Plus its in an area that is beautiful and that we would love to live in, but we want to be open to the possibility that maybe this isn't where we are supposed to go after school. Hard balance to maintain. It will be sooooo nice to get out of town for the weekend though!

And thanks for the reminder, I go to chiro tomorrow morning. Looking forward to that too.

I'm excited about the elections today. I hope a lot of incumbents get overturned.
I've been doing a Happy Dance for two days... with reservations yesterday since I was waiting to hear the outcome on Virginia! Pins and needles since it could have made Cheney the swing vote... But now, it's simply Happy Dance time. I'm disappointed in the results of two of our state propositions, but overall: I was pleased with this election...
post #37 of 56
Yay!
Yeah, elections are pretty happy here too. NPR said this morning that European media was like, "Thank you, America."

Still didn't hear the heartbeat this morning. Oh well, it's still early. Plenty of uterine growth and placenta sounds. I'm going to try to move my OB/GYN appt for Monday back, so they don't fail to find it and then want to do an ultrasound.

I hope it works out well, Kimberly. East TN is so pretty. A good state for midwifery, too!

Goldie, how's your son at school today?

Heidi, is Johnny feeling any better? Did he go to the ER the other night?

Well Jessi, so far so good for ds at school. I am keeping my fingers crossed that it stays that way for him. I am thinking that because he was such a different kiddo when getting on the bus this morning that it means he will be fine today.

I however am still getting sick a few times a day. Thankfully it is mostly just in the mornings, but still, very annoying. It was by far worse when I was getting sick at night.

Well, I guess it is time to feed my girls, so I am off for now. Hope that everyone is having a good day.

OT rant and ramble:

So I was taking my last few pre-requisites for the nursing program this semester. I want to be a midwife and figured in CA the easiest way would be to go the nursing route. My DH is very supportive of me becoming a CNM because he knows how much money I will make. Well, for the last few years I've known that I want to be a home-birth midwife and I started taking classes in Oregon for it, but we moved. Now that I've been back in school and taking the nursing classes I've come to the realization that I really don't want to be a nurse. I'm taking Pharmacology right now and it is so hard for me to get into it, because I'm just not interested. Then at my last appt with my mw we were talking about midwifery and she reminded me that she runs a teaching practice. DH wasn't at the appt with me, so he didn't get to hear all she said. So, I've once again decided to drop out of college because my mw told me that she is interested in having me as one of her students. This is exactly what I want. I hadn't told DH yet because he's really been getting on my case about studying lately. I finally told him this morning that I'm dropping the classes and he got really pissed and left for work without saying much to me. He didn't even give me the chance to tell him about my MW and working with her. So, I'm kinda pissed right now, because he's being so pigheaded and all he can think about is money and how he really wants me to make $100grand a year (which is what cnm's make in my area). I am looking forward to getting to talk to him this evening and explaining my situation, but I still think he'll be upset. He just kept saying "you promised you were going to stick with it..." And I did say that, because from what I knew, you could not get licensed as a mw in CA any other way than becoming a cnm. Now that I know I can, I know that that is what I have to do. Ugh, sorry if this isn't coherent. I'm just sort of rambling my frustrations out. If you made it this far, thanks for listening. We'll see how he takes it tonight.

Eaglevoice.... let me try to be a voice of reason, having had similar troubles with my educational choices. Might I suggest that unless you A. can get all your tuition money back and/or B. think that you are struggling to the point of failing the courses that you are currently taking, that you finish out the semester and THEN start studying under your midwife? This might be a good compromise between your wants and your husband's. Besides, it's not like finishing the term will delay your midwifery too much, and the knowledge gained will be helpful at some point. I'm not sure when your term started/finishes, but if it ends in Dec then stick it out, it is only a few more weeks! You can do it!!!
If it doesn't end until April, then, well, I don't know... but consider your options!
