Another month, another baby for the May '04 Mamas! ;) - Page 2

post #21 of 441
Baby pangs beyond 3 for me....totally not there. Ready to make DH's V-appt as we speak. :

coffee....my true craving this pg. I indulge it now and again. : I already can't wait for a couple years down the road when I can indulge a caffeine habit full-time.

Nothing on the agenda at all for us tomorrow. Well maybe packing, but that's not fun. I'll have to see what ideas C has--she always thinks of something zany.

So I have a deep dark secret about me that no one on here knows... as well as not very many people in real life...

I will share tomorrow after 3 pm PST when I know for sure the outcome of this situation that has taken nearly 7 years...
post #24 of 441
Just to make sure I didn't alarm all of you...

It's not THAT big of a deal. Just something a little different than most other people.
post #25 of 441
Sounds exciting, I am staying tuned. Especially, it sounds mega-important to you and something you've been waiting for for a while!
post #26 of 441
hmmmm....now i'm curious!!



"and in this corner of the ring we have ebin weighing in at 16 lbs 13 oz" yep. the power of boob!!!! and he is 26 1/4" long. i'm kicking myself for not keeping all of isaac's measurements in one location because i'd love to compare right about now :


my agenda this week involves cleaning out our "office" (nook off the kitchen) so i can move our crappy (carpy) little tiny desk and bookcase out and move in the desk and bookcase from my office. the desk is retro and cool and i love it so i'm moving it home. this involves going through oodles of the paperwork that just builds like.....bank statements from 2001. i started this afternoon and found the invoice for our final payment for isaac's birth $666. yep. i decided that one should go in the baby book

i also have my first postpartum client meeting tomorrow at a wastewater treatment plant. i think i'm going to like this new work thing -- work a couple of hours and then come home! i had our babysitter come watch ebin yesterday while i went and prepped for my meeting and packed up my office to move all the carp home. she hasn't watched babies a lot but she did well and he is generally pretty easy.

its a solo bedtime for me tonight because doug went to listen to the dodger game. i hope it is easy because isaac is so tired and ebin is fussing on and off.

i'm really hoping this IS the month for emmalola. because i know that going fully to 42 weeks can realllllllllly try a woman's patience :

OK, I have to wait for the bike and now I have to wait for a very mysterious revelation too.

I'll be the May Mama of the Morning today...

Good morning ladies!
post #31 of 441
I'll be able to pop on and off for little bits of time today... but no real time to update on anything or hold conversations. Sorry! I will at 3pm or so.
post #32 of 441
Now is that 3pm est? or do we have to wait for another time zone?

sigh.

All this waiting!

I tried the townie and I didn't like the "flat foot technology". In theory it's great, but it places the pedals forward which means that there is no way to stand and pedal which I can imagine I will need to do once I carry a load (hell, I need it now to get over the freeway overpass hill). I am used to a no gear coaster bike and standing to pedal up a hill was a common way to get going, but I regret not having the Townie quality and cuteness. I went with a Specialized brand (local!) commuter/hybrid bike that looks more masculine than I wanted although cheaper and more traditionally shaped. I think I will paint it and get a townie front basket as well as the freeradical later (when Alison is feeling less concerned about the bucks). My concern is that with the freeradical it won’t fit on my bike rack anymore or on the bus…still thinking about that issue because my bike-centered lifestyle will still have to involve both at least some of the time.

In the meantime, I would love to try your baby bike seat. I want a peapod, but I only need to transport Annie about half a mile by bike to do the drop off/pick up for day care so the expense may not be justified. If I could try yours then I would be able to see if doing DC drop off by bike would even work. We need to get together IRL anyway – seems silly we are so close to each other and haven’t seen each other in years. Let me know if you are up for a meet-up.

So mysterious and intriguing… I will be back to check on this. Do we get any hints? You know, it takes 7 years to replace every cell in your body so whatever this is – you aren’t the same person as when you started on it (okay, I know I am grossly oversimplifying the 7 year thing, it’s so cliché and scientifically inaccurate, but I like it anyway.)

Damn, Annabel is small. We have a check up today so I will update later, but I am guessing she maybe crossed the 13 lbs mark, maybe. Ebin would kick her butt!

Fernitude, how big is W? Have you tried solids with him yet? We’re thinking we will this weekend since she is so small and has shown some interest. Not sure…
post #34 of 441
3 PST....


I'm unsure of how to give this hint... give me an idea and I could probably do that...

Ooohhh…Ten Questions…to be followed by ten more once you answer these:

1.Is it family related?
2.Does it cost money?
3.Does it conflict with who most people think you are?
4.Does it have to do with midwifery?
5.Are you in trouble with the law (or will be once this gets out)?
6.Are you nervous to share this with us?
7.Who else IRL knows about this?
8.Is the 3 pm time arbitrary?
9.Is it twins? Not sure how that would take 7 years, but…
10.Are you waiting to hear some news at 3pm before you can tell us?

1.) In a way, I feel it is family related.
2.) Yes, it costs money.
3.) Yes, it conflicts with who most people think I am... but I still feel I am the same person regardless.
4.) No, it has nothing to do with midwifery. In those areas I will not have any secrets on my beliefs/future practices/etc.
5.) Hmmm... I am not currently in trouble... and no I will not be once this is taken care of... but I suppose in some situations this could cause me to be in some trouble with the law.
6.) I'm not as nervous to share this with you, actually more excited. You guys are my awesome MMF and probably the small group of people I feel comfortable about opening up about this to.
7.) A few close family members know about it... but only two know it is being resolved after 7 years.
8.) At this time of the morning I cannot remember what arbitrary means..
9.) No idea if we're having twins... we aren't doing ultrasound.. but I too would be confused as to how 7 years could play into that.
10.) Yes, I am waiting for news at 2:30 pm. and then have to make it home before I can tell any of you.
post #37 of 441
That ten was easy. I don't feel it gave it away at all. You can go ahead and follow up with ten more. I'll go load the dishwasher while I wait.
post #38 of 441
Oh, so it’s a challenge is it? Anyone else want to ask some questions? Here are a couple more from me:

1.Is it property?
2.Is it plastic surgery/tattoo/body changes related?
post #39 of 441
Sex change?

Name change?
post #40 of 441
1. is it something health/medical related?
2. are you jumping out of an airplane? (i don't think they'd let you do it pregnant, but i'm having a hard time thinking of anything so i'll keep it.)
3. are you moving to a different state?
4. a different country?
5. adopting a child from a different state?
6. a different country?
7. ooh... does it have something to do with your church?
8. oh, maybe with LLL?
9. hmmm... are you renovating a home?
10. come to think of it, are you buying a home? (or is that just crazy us...

this is a fun game! this should be a new mmf tradition! weekly surprise announcements of random origin that include a fabulous buildup and ten questions game. *insert random clapping noise*
