Hi all! It's me, the ever-tardy May mama! I have been reading, just not writing. I spend my free time trying to eat small snacks or resting. That's the height of excitement here in our home lately.
It's been a yucky week for me, nausea-wise. I've thrown up multiple times, always at night. It just ain't fun. But, I'm 12 weeks tomorrow, so I keep thinking it's gotta get better sometime soon, right???? Though, with G, I think I was like this until more like 14 or more weeks.
On to May Mama news:
Jstar-Wow, 2 boys! Everyone has said some wonderful things about the girl/boy conundrum. I feel a lot like you and Emmalola. I would really like this one to be a girl. Yet I know a boy would be wonderful and great and all that. I thought G would be a girl, and when he came out and wasn't, it just didn't matter. We are not finding out because 1) our insurance doesn't cover u/s (heck, it doesn't cover birth), so unless something else warrants it, we won't do it; 2) our midwife doesn't do them anyway; and 3) we still want the surprise. Part of me really wants to know if it's worth hanging on to all the boy clothese we have, but we also have lots of non-gender specific infant stuff because we didn't know G's sex. So, I think some of it will be used anyway.
There is something about a girl, and I've had dreams this one is a girl and tend to think of this baby as "she." I realize I could just be projecting, though, so I will prepare myself for whatever. And, this *is* it, girl/boy or what have you.
Emmalola-Glad your interview went so well. It must feel so good to get something done like this. I've been following the YG convo, too. Small steps like this have a huge impact and do make a difference.
I'm also glad the accupuncture has helped your nausea. I had that done when pg with G but that was in another city, so I haven't hooked up with one here. Maybe I should try it. Did you find the needles helpful or the herbs or both? Last time I went when pg with G, she recommended ginger tea so I did that each morning. However, the thought of doing that again makes me nauseous, so I haven't tried it.
Goodness, I'm neglecting many of you, I know. Thinking of fiddle and Lisa/Allison and anxiously awaiting happy news!
Oh, and Elsanne-I was reading your blog and wishing so badly that we still lived only 45 minutes from the Houston airport like we used to! And, it's not for just anyone I would wish I were back in Texas, believe me
. I'm so glad it worked out....I know so many folks who live in the area that we could have called on your behalf, as well (remember that if you're ever unfortunate enough to have to get stuck there again). I'm glad it all worked out, but, man that sucks.
And as far as names, we've had the same girl name picked out for 10 years: Julianna Grace (would probably call her Annie as Julia was my grandma and Julie is my sis). No boy names, yet. I've never liked many boy names; Gabriel is my fave
We kinda like Joel. I've always like Matthew, but it's so overused.
Must veg for a while in front of TiVo. Night, all.
