Oh, Jaclyn! I'm very sorry. I miscarried my 3rd baby, it's so difficult, I know. I can really appreciate you attitude about it. More s!!

Thank you guys, sooo much. It feels awesome to have your support, it really does. I can't believe how much I know you all, despite not having ever met you for real...except Jörð.

I wish I could say more...but THANK YOU.

Shauna, Jett is just now about 30 lbs, as well. He's such a little string bean. After this cold/flu he's had, he looks downright skinny and we're letting him have anything and everything he wants to pack some weight back on him.

She sounds like a really awesome kid. I know what you mean about enjoying her more. We were just saying the same thing the other day about Jett.

I feel special.

I'm glad you're not feeling terrible physically anymore.

C is 27 pounds. He's TINY!

I had to chuckle. Carrie is a mirco babe, too. She weighs in at a whopping 25 pounds. : I guess I need to push : on her.

Hmmm.... Charlie is 30 lbs too, and has been for about forever. It's amazing how he keeps moving up in clothing sizes and footwear, but the scale doesn't change a bit.

Just came in from making snowmen! :

That's Jett to a 'T.' He keeps shooting up left and right, but his weight was static forever. He finally beat the 30 mark, I think, after showing 28 lbs for months and months...like 10 months, maybe? It was crazy.

So...after a relatively calm day yesterday with a few clots, mild bleeding like a normal period and just being extremely physically and mentally exhausted, more so than after giving birth to Jett, today I woke up feeling much stronger, probably about 80%. I was sitting at the computer and felt a strong urge to walk a little. I did that, needed to squat...and passed a second complete placenta. :shocked

Since you guys probably don't remember, Jett was a twin, too. His placenta had the lobe of a second, identical twin that did not develop. Twins run in my family, but this is crazy.

WHOA! I can't imagine your surprise! I hope that means you'll be feeling MUCH better soon.

Jaclyn,

want to keep chatting about names and kid-isms.
Nicholas was chatting with my brother on the phone yesterday and kept telling him about objects in our house--apparently just looking around the room for more things to describe, as a way of making conversation. Finally he was just interrupting my brother's anecdotes every minute or so by shouting, "We have a lot of things that we have!" We sure do...I am hoping to clear out some clutter before Christmas, but Nick is very attached to everything, even if he never plays with it, and when he notices we've put something in the yard-sale pile he gets it out and puts it in the middle of the floor. : The only such item that's really worked out well is a toy that some friends gave him last Christmas, a box of cardboard jigsaw pieces that fit together in pairs of adjective and noun (fuzzy+bunny, orange+carrot, etc.) exactly one way. A year ago, he enjoyed strewing the pieces all over the floor, but he wasn't at all interested in matching them, and to reduce clutter I'd been packing them into the box and stashing it in a back corner of his play area at every opportunity. Finally I put it in the yard-sale pile, and he got it out, so I explained how the game works...and he caught right on and worked at it until he had all the pairs together. Then he pushed them around the room in a line which he said was a "school bus". I guess he's old enough to appreciate that toy now!

Attention all knitting mamas-

I need help. No really...

One of you, I can't remember who- knit a cute little hat in the rount a few years ago. I'd like the pattern. Help a girl out? I'm learning t knit and rather enjoying it. Do you think the picky pants pattern would be ok for a first timer?
post #51 of 112
Oh Jaclyn, you and your family are in my thoughts and heart.




*****

Kids that weigh very little: Wyatt is 26 lbs. We were thrilled when he finally went over 25 lbs! He is wearing 18 month pants - they are finally getting a little short and tight -- his 2 year old and 24 month clothes are starting to fit.

I can't imagine if he were 38 lbs!!! Wow, Shalena, you must be SO strong!

I wasn't the hat knitter I don't think, but I have knit an assortment of longies so I can give you my opinion in that department. Wonderpants are a great first timer longie pattern because she teaches you magic loop (most awesomest thing ever) also her instructions are really easy to understand and when you purchase the pattern and sign up for the forum a whole sub forum for pattern help opens up to you.

E is 8 now and is 53 pounds. I think I just have little kids. Their doctor is very laid back and happy with their growth so I don't worry.
post #54 of 112
Actually, I think i'm going to try this pattern. I just want to make a rolled edge hat to match. But thank you!

Jaclyn, I have been popping in and keeping up with the thread, just haven't had much time to post. And ~wow~ about the twin thing... I guess I don't understand what a blighted ovum is... maybe I need to do some research in my spare time! I had a friend who miscarried very early and that is the only time I have heard this term until now. She gave me the impression that a baby had never actually formed... is this wrong?

Jenelle,
A blighted ovum is ...oh crap...too hard to type it all out. Here's a good link to it: http://www.misdiagnosedmiscarriage.c...ghtedovum.html

Basically, the fertilized egg did a little splitting, but it never really developed from there. At some point, the zygote(?) died but somehow, my body got tricked into continuing the pregnancy.

Thanks for the link, Jaclyn. I actually did take the time to read it. And again, and I am so sorry for your losses.

I don't know if you guys weigh your kids naked or not, but I weighed Eli last night after a big poop in the potty (yay!) and right before he got in the bath - so - naked - and he is still at 27 lbs. It seems to me that he has weighed 27 lbs. forever! He is getting taller, finally, though. He wore the same jeans and pants for a long time, and we are finally passing those down to Isaac.

Iris has been the same weight since at least June.

I weight Cole when he's getting into the tub every few months.
