PS-Sorry I mostly lurk! I just wanted to answer this question. My baby Oliver was the first July DDC baby. He is doing wonderful and is now a huge 14 pounds. I hope you guys don't mind me lurking. I love reading about you all. Jess
glad to hear Oliver is doing well! i don't mind at all...sometimes I am in lurk mode as well (although I do try to keep up...wouldn't want to put anyone through any unneccessary trauma (sorry Elsanne) )

Amara has a strange thing in her yoni (vagina, for those who don't speak Hindu ) where it looks like she has an extra set of inner labia, and who knows what else (a whole uterus?), just underneath her normal ones. Hard to explain, and only noticeable when she's spread-eagled. I have had the sense ever since she was born that maybe her parts are inoperable in the reproductive sense. I am sure she has a normal vagina as well, so sex and peeing should be no issue. My HCPractitioner says that we can get an ultrasound when she's like 10 to see what all's going on.
Thats fascinating! my yoni is unique as well. I am still a bit self conscious about it but after having given birth twice not so much.

She's not yet 9 mos, and she's had oranges and clementines. I heard it was recommended to hold off because the citric acid could upset their tummies? But, seeing that she eats hot peppers (I kid you not...the girl's got a steel stomach), I don't think that bothers her, and we didn't notice any reactions.

She's also had tomatoes, strawberries, tofu, wheat, and peanut butter. *shrug* I think the only "allergy" food she HASN'T had is shellfish. I'm pretty sure my MIL gave her chocolate pudding when I wasn't there. : (I kind of want to hold off on all the sugar crap) I didn't mean to give her peanut butter, but last week she was in the bjorn, I had a sandwich in one hand, and was making another for the little girl I watch, and, Lightning Mouth bit a piece off before I even noticed.

And then she IMMEDIATELY turned bright red, made some grunty-gaspy noises, I began searching frantically for my phone, sure she was going into anaphelactic (sp?) shock, and realized there was a foul odor in the room.

Yeah, she chose that moment to deposit a stinky in the diaper. Nice timing, giving Mama a heart attack.

Her only allergy so far is cinnamon, and that seems to be more of a skin irritation rather than an ingestion allergy (she ate it fine a few times, but then smeared some of the oatmeal all over her face and broke out). So, we don't give her any for now to be safe (I read that many babies grow out of cinnamon reactions by age three)
wow that was nice of her! Jacob also has had pb...glad I'm not the only one! he didn't steal it from me but from his brother. he loves it! and no reactions. I try not to give too much though because I don't want him to choke on it or otherwise become unable to breathe.

No the answer you want I am sure, but wait it out and take a test



Still can't believe that you are pregnant, you are my hero

No physical characteristics here except the one inside his brain, where he is missing a large part, and functioning beyond normal, excpetional really in my eyes! :

Ayden (my older) peed all day in toilets at stores and rest. and pooped tonight! YEAH YEAH YEAH! Ok that is enough of my toddlers potty experiences, I know this is a baby thread...:

I started to get a heavy chest today with congestion, and was really bummed, we have all been healthy for like two weeks finally. I doesed up on some homeopaths, and vit, but no SA for me, cause ds won't nurse from me if I take enough to matter :
yay yay yay on the PT!!!!!!!!!!! sorry about the chest yuckies


about my cycle I have no idea. spotting on and off all day. I guess I just play the waiting game. I have used a couple of tampons...one was soaked and started to leak and I removed the 2nd after four hours and there was NOTHING on it.

Laura (dw) has always had this thing about giving the kids a lemon when they were babies cos she saw it on candid camera years ago before we had kids..... she's decided she should hurry up and do it to Cerys cos she's our last baby and she hasn't done it yet!!!!

so Sarenka - was it funny??? I also meant to ask you what's up with the pulses thing? You mentioned your body wasn't tolerating them??? Spill the beans
post #686 of 755
I miss my babies. My sis took them overnight to give me a *break* and I can't concentrate on cleaning and I can't sleep.

my apartment feels odd without them here. empty and eerily quiet.

that's too funny Claire!
post #688 of 755
Well, Claire, it was quite funny actually -and she came back for more!!

As for spilling the beans....I get migraines after lentils, and terrible gas. This is dreadful because I love lentils and used to eat them a lot. DD1 loves them and I keep thinking 'oh just a spoonful' and then it happens. Every time. I have a theory that I may have caught it from dh who has never been able to tolerate pulses - we've exchanged gut flora or something : but I am no scientist!!

I know what you mean about the eery quietness...maybe do something for yourself? Whatever you do, don't clean

There's a longer post about it here: http://www.mothering.com/discussions...82#post7649382

My question that I'm wondering now is this: how do you, or how do you plan to, teach your kids that it isn't okay to push other people down? Even though perhaps in your past you haven't always been kind to people? How do you really instill this in them, knowing that someday they'll be teenagers in high school, and there'll be that one person that rubs them the wrong way, that everyone else makes fun of, that could put you higher in the social pecking order if you just go along with it?
You definitly need a . I agree with others about not blaming yourself, but to instill empathy on your own children. How awful for her little girl.

Here's a question for you: Do any of your babies have some unique physical characteristics?
I don't think I could handle diaper changes while PG. No blame from me for using sposies! I'll probably do the same (when the time comes). How's the PGcy going overall (aside from being so sick!).

As for physical characteristics, DS is the most non-flexible baby I've ever met. It's difficult to get his feet to touch his nose!

Good to hear Oliver is doing so well! I've thought about him a lot and wondered how he's doing. Lurk away! Let us know how things are going occasionally.

Yesterday it got up to almost 90 degrees here! I'm ready for spring, but summer can wait.

I feel so stupid, I went outside to hang up some laundry on the line and I locked myself outside. Luckily I had brought DS with me. I have no idea how it happened ... I had just unlocked the door to go outside and it somehow locked itself. I was on the phone with my sister when it happened, so I even had my phone with me (luckily, b/c none of my neighbors were home to use their phones). DH came home from work to let me back in. I still have no idea how the door re-locked. I have a feeling DH is going to use this as a teasing device for a long time!

I LOVE hanging clothes up on the line. Yay. And that is funny (in retrospect) about locking yourself out--thank GAWDS you brought your son and your phone!

DH just put up a line a couple weeks ago. It's enough to put about half our laundry out to dry. I hope he'll put up another line to put up the other half. Line dried clothes smell SOOOOO good.

If I was going to lock myself out, I did it with the ideal circumstances ... nice weather, baby and phone with me, etc. We're going to get copies of our key made and hide one outside somewhere and give our neighbor one too.
post #693 of 755
that is why we got the keyless doorlock. I knew that i was going to forget often my keys. I used to do it often as a teen. Now if i lock the door and i need something or i forgot my keys, i just punch in the numbers and turn the handle and open the door. I could also leave my keys in the engine of the van and go inside and get what i forgot. Which i do about a few times a wk. :

I actually switched from sposies to cloth when I was pg with Jacob. the cloth actually released the smell (and I didn't have to deal with the pefumy chemical smell), wow 90 degrees! its pretty warm here been in the 70s. I have the windows open and when Caleb wakes up we're all three going for a WALK!

it is kind of funny but I can so imagine how you felt. my home is my sanctuary I couldn't stand being right there and not be able to get in.

I didn't! I read a book took a long shower, lazed in bed ate whatever I felt like it without trying to convince myself to share with Caleb. once they got back I started cleaning. hey I can clean ANYTIME but they never let me take a long shower and laze in bed with a book!

I do this too!!! Except that I take my keys, because I can just pull them right out of the ignition and right back in while the motor is running. I do it ALL. THE. TIME!

Thanks to all for the sweetness on the new pregnancy. It made me suddenly remember that I have a prenatal appt tomorrow that I've been intending to reschedule due to no one to watch the kids.

Been offline all day. Dh says our router is starting to poop out on us. :

Had such a gross moment this evening. I had Aidan in the bath and Nate on the floor of the bathroom giggling at his brother's antics, when the phone rang. I *knew* it was my best friend, whom I hadn't spoken to all weekend, so I ran to get it, as the boys seemed happily occupied. When I returned, I noticed something sticking out of Nate's mouth, so I fished around and pulled out a long blonde hair (mine) with a clump of toilet paper attached to the end. Then Aidan says "Mommy! Nate drop!", and points to the corner of the bathroom, where there is a wastebasket, the toilet brush, and a plunger, all overturned. With wads of tp sitting on the floor. Ew. So I ask "Is there anything else I should know?", not expecting an answer. Aidan shakes his head, smiles gleefully and says "No!". Ended up scrubbing an unidentifyable grit off of Nate's hands and wishing there was some humane way I could wash out his little mouth. I don't even want to think about what he actually ate. I'll probably find dental floss or something in his diaper tomorrow.

Any other comedies of errors to report?
