May 2004 mamas finding happiness & fulfillment in the new year! (& maybe riches) - Page 21

post #401 of 412
Just letting you all know that we have an external cephalic version appointment for Alison in the morning. I will let you all know how it goes.

Heather, I am so sorry that the difficult things are pouring on you right now. I hope the world lets up soon. s

Thank you - from the bottom of my heart - for being this amazing group of women. I am feeling the love for you all tonight. Your support has been so great.

MWAH to all, especially Lisa (and A.) and Heather. And Fiddle. And and and...anyone who needs it. Including myself.

TG I have tomorrow off of school. Just finished a paper that was due tonight at midnight.

Lily is being so amazingly sweet recently. I feel sooooo bad that she is with the nanny 9+ hours a day while DH is away, but she is just rolling with it and being so cool. We had a great dinner/bath/evening tonight and it just makes me cry to think about how much I miss her some days. At the same time school is so fascinating these days and I'm loving finally getting to the good stuff. I wish I could do more extra things for school - volunteering, extra clinic hours, etc., but I also want to spend more time at home. Seems like both things get the shaft. Sigh.

Lisa, I am glad you are in a good space with all this. I really hope the version works and all goes well after. I think your plan is great and well thought out.

Fiddle, I saw the almost-full moon this evening driving home and thought of you and W...eep! We'll meet him soon.

Claudia, Lily had fun with M the other day. A couple of times we've played with the animal beads and she's said, "M made me a necklace with those! He's a sweet boy!"

Must. Sleep.

S.

Argh- just lost a long post all about my birth plans. Way past bed time. Short story: giving birth in the hospital. Not my ideal, but had to choose the most workable thing in a less-than-ideal situation. Life is sometimes like that, I guess.

I'm thinking the full moon is gonna suck the babies out of both Allison and I on Friday.

However, if I have not given birth by Sunday, everyone light their candles at 3 pm pacific time. Those who live in PDX, if I'm still preggers, you are invited to my house any time between 3 pm and 7 pm for music and hanging out and generally partying this baby out of me. . Bring a lil something snacky, and a musical instrument or your voice.

OK, now it's really late and I am Soooooooooooooooooooooooo tired. Nighty night.

FF---I had to at your par-tay induction method...definitely seems his personality!! Forget the quiet, serene birthy thing....this boy wants to come into the world rockin' ...can't wait to meet the little fiddle!

Sarah--Your situation sounds so hard, but at the same time I'm so glad you have the opportunity to be doing the mw stuff now and have such great care for Lily. What a sweetie girl you have!

Lisa---lots of gentle turning vibes and relaxing visualizations for Alison and little one!!

I'm sure I'm forgetting something or someone, but couldn't miss this opportunity to be Goddess of the Morning! We have GI appts at 9!

Check out Heath over here! She beat me!
I have SO much to do online today (I've been neglecting my email and various other things I'm involved in online--and I am removing my information from as much of the internet as possible--I get SO MUCH SPAM! ) and so much to do at home...Rowan is singing quietly to himself and playing behind me, it is so sweet. He really is getting into playing by himself, and I'm like "well, you're gonna be an only, you'd better get used to it!" But right now he just asked me to come over to him and play, so I must answer the call.

Much love and warm thoughts to every single one of you. I will get my candle ready for Sunday, and there's one called "Relaxation" lit for Alison and little one right now!

Sorry my posts have been short as of late...but I'm here!
Have a great day, mamas.

Thinking of you and Alison and breech-but-soon-to-be-vertex baby! Hope the version is a success and not too scary!

gotta run, katie crying...

Dang, mamacita, I hear this. You are doing amazing things, and very important work in this world. Lily will be all the better for it.

Can't wait to hear if it "took". Let us know!!! You both must be so anxious...I hope not...can't wait to hear who the heck is in her abdomen all upright like that...

i have a high probability of having another may baby. i am secretly hoping for jun 1 though just for variety's sake

checkin in on my birthy mamas this morning i saw the big moon too. good thoughts for the version this morning. and for the ferny frond. i'll be at a superbowl shindig sunday afternoon so i'll have to take my candle with me i think it is great that W is a loud/party/social creature with a big brother in the house

ok, so another just have to laugh thing about our posts...

whenever i see someone write "Heath", in my mind's reading voice, i can't stop myself from pronouncing it HEE-th instead of the HEH-th it would be if there were an e-r after it. so you are starting to become Heath, the butch mama, in my imagination, HF.

thinking of lisa of alison and new baby-to-arrive-sometime-soon... meant to ask, how is E doing?

ferny-friend: will plan on coming by on sunday if W hasn't shown up yet. funny about what you said that he might be an extrovert.

i can't believe no one started a february thread... should i start one? hmm... contemplating, contemplating...
