thanks for the welcome, ladies! you know, there is always a discount code at the end of the latest podcast, which is good until the next podcast is posted. they're usually between 5 and 10%; the current one (podcast5holiday) is for 8% off. i know it's not the holidays anymore, but we're late recording our new year episode!

speaking of which, how was everybody's holiday? i know fronuff and boobmommi welcomed their new little ones - congratulations!! we just [endured] enjoyed a steady parade of houseguests and are thrilled to have survived. for two people who self-identify as utter hermits and had planned to videochat our way into far-flung family gatherings in between cuddling up and roasting chestnuts all alone, it was quite a stretch!

in other news, we're super excited abt the babe - the belly is on swole and he's kicking up a storm. we're about to join our local Y so i can swim for exercise... normally we take a 2 mile walk 2 or 3 times a week, but since it's gotten cold we've totally fallen off. i can feel myself becoming less fit than i was a couple of months ago and that scares me... i think part of me feels like i have to prepare for birth like i'm preparing for a marathon!

I'm irritated by the holidays. This year, for a change, it has nothing to do ith the inlaws.

We don't celebrate the holidays, which lends to a VERY peaceful season.... I certainly enjoyed the time off, though.

Hello, everyone! I'm kinda new here, and I mostly lurk. Just wanted to say hi from Cali!

Welcome NishaG. It's always nice to have new members

My holidays were awesome, if not a little exhausting. I recently moved into a new home so my abode was the designated place to do everything. I enjoyed every moment, got lots of help, but it just plain wore me out.
I love it but purchasing an older home comes with many travails and can cost lots of money trying to update it. We had the entire downstairs painted because frankly, it was butt ugly. We have at least put our flair on the lower level, but it will take a lot of time to get the upstairs in order. I still have boxes of crap that I need to sort through

My best to all of you.

I miss Ericka. I hope she'll check in soon!!

I forgot to say Oyin products rock!! I'll be placing an order soon.: Congratulations on your little one mama~~how sweet

Our holiday was good. We decided not to anywhere so that made things very peaceful. I have nothing new going on, nothing exciting I feel so dull compared to the rest of you. Other than battling a cold. If I'm the one that's sick why is he the one sleeping in?

Because men are such wusses when it comes to illness that the illnesses of *others* make them weak and tired? :

Hey Ladies!

I can't believe I've bypassed this. Subbing...

Kinda feeling like an outcast lately, so I've been fairly quiet on the boards.

Peace to you all and congrats on all the new babies!!!!!!

Poor ChibiChibi is all over me about homeschooling again (still?). Even my sister seems to be getting fed up with things-- she told Chibi, upon hearing of one particular (girl) child who is irritating her, that she should punch her in the face. "It's only a two or three day suspension if they call you on it, and she'll probably leave you alone after that." : I'm kind of flabbergasted by this, you know? All Chibi says is, "Please, just let me go home with Rynna, I'll do anything, I can pack my bag in five minutes, just let me go with her. . ." No matter how unappealing I try to make it sound, she knows it'd be better than school and she's absolutely right. BizzyBug's been having problems in school as well, but hers are more related to her autism than to other kids. Like that's so much better.

Mike is still unemployed, and we still don't know where we're going to be living at the end of the month. I don't like thinking about it. : It makes my brain hurt. Oh, and SeaMonkey is trying to escape. Silly baby! He needs to stay in for a few more weeks. At least. :

hi guys. i'm new in these parts but i thought a mommies of color post is a good place for me to get started. first, because i am brown and second, because my particular pregancy issues seem to be particular to "us".

we're waiting a week to confirm what my symptoms suggest. however, in the meantime i am looking for all the info/support i can find about fibroids and pregnancy.

you can see my mini-backstory here: http://www.mothering.com/discussions...8#post10311748 eta: link fixt

any suggestions about books/websites/support groups/etc in my endeavor to not have a myoectomy and a full term birth and healthy baby?
post #37 of 2776
Libra - your link seems to be broken.... and I'm sorry, I am of no help with the fibroids issue....
post #38 of 2776
Wow Rynna, that is a lot. Do you guys want to stay in state or would you be willing to move where the work is. I hope things start coming together for your nieces and that baby stays in a little longer.

Hello,
I am so pleased to have found this thread! I generally do not have time to do more than read, but I hope to post more in the future. I am a full time work and student mom and wife. My time is not really my own. I do hope to post more in the near future.

Welcome Paid! It sounds like you have a busy life but don't stay in lurkdom! We love having new members.

Rynna, how are you? I wonder if you've had your little one yet and how things are with your living situation.
