Welcome Ghislaine and Mischievium!

Mischevium, could you confirm your month of EDD? I'll put you in for March, let me know if it's different.

ELV to sugarshoc!

July is coming to a close soon. Crosscat, are you still interested in being the August threadkeeper?

I'm super excited to see, 3 new members, one baby coming anytime now, and everyone else posting!

Welcome Ghislaine! Congratulations!

Crosscat, yay, another watermelon muncher! Glad to know its healthy for pregnant women . I've also been ODing on all kinds of other summer fruit. Peaches, white peaches, some berries, melons, mmmmmmmmmmm.

Kemi, yay for feeling baby move! It definitely felt like a vibration or bubbles for me at first, and right around 17-18 weeks I felt the first "thump". Glad you're starting to feel a bit better, and I hope you enjoy your second trimester! I actually really enjoyed the baby showers we had, even though I'm not normally "stuff oriented". I think more than anything it was the outpouring of feeling loved that was wonderful, and thinking that our baby will be born into an extended family of friends already.




Hmmm, me. Nothing new. Still feeling kind of achey-crampy down low and down there, but I can't find my cervix to see if these BH and other feelings are doing anything! Sigh. I will be patient.

I was just hoping to have the baby sometime soon, so that DH could spend his automatic time off btwn. teaching with us, rather than having to take time off.

Took the doggies for a nice hike/walk last night, which included a drive down a bumpy road, DTD, drinking RRL tea, taking EPO, heck it all should be working a bit...

Psst, Nony? Are you out there? Haven't heard from you in a while, wondering if you're a July mama now!

Thanks for all the welcomes, ladies!

I had my first beta yesterday and got the results today-- 148! (the nurse who called me said it was an "awesome" 148 ). I have another test tomorrow to make sure the hCG is doubling like it should :

I'm right on the cusp, so I haven't decided which DDC to join-- I'm kinda waiting to see how many are in there to make a firm decision. I guess you can put March/April 09 for now .

Just updating, nope, no change here...no labor yet.

Actually I feel like I have less signs than I did earlier in the week, sigh.

39w2d.

Baby, we're ready for you, come out to play!

Aw, Sugarshoc, congratulations! What a tiny little birdie girl you have!
post #77 of 100
Sugarshoc - congratulations!!!! What awesome news! I'm so happy you have your beautiful, healthy baby girl in your arms!! I can't wait to see pictures if you feel like sharing.

Welcome to all our new members - engineering mama, mischievium, and Ghislaine!

Mischievium - so good to have you here, old friend (you know what I mean by "old!") It's so great to see someone graduate after trying a long time... can't wait to hear your most recent beta!

Michelle - I can't believe you're still at work! I can see how the distraction would be good tho. At 39 weeks, you could still have another 2 weeks to wait! (SORRY!)

Watermelon sounds good but like a lot of work. But so is pineapple, I guess. That's been my summer fruit of choice. And cherries. And mostly and especially nectarines!!

Kemi - glad you are feeling better! And feeling movement - cool!! My first movements felt like bubbles too.

DH and I are feeling sad this week b/c we had to put our older doggie to sleep yesterday. He didn't hear well nor walk well. But recently he has had some confused and lethargic days and the dr seemed to indicate it was probably a tumor. It was SO hard. DH took it especially hard b/c he'd had the doggie for 12 years...

On a positive note we're getting our baby names narrowed down. And I have today off so... I'm in a good mood. This weekend if it's nice, we'll probably go snorkeling at the beach.

Hope everyone else has a great weekend! I love to see so much activity here!

Jencat I'm so sorry you guys had to put your old doggie to sleep. We had to do that to a kitty a couple of years back, and it was one of the hardest things I've ever done. Made me feel more like an adult than anything else I've ever done so far in my life.

Glad you're getting baby names narrowed down though! That's fun .

Yep, I could actually have up to almost THREE weeks to wait, possibly. 42 weeks it when we'd have to think about induction, etc. here.

I am, however trying to vizualize opening up, letting baby come, being ready, letting go of all and any mental blocks I might have left.

Awww Jen I'm so sorry about your doggie. How sad.

Fiberlover I'm thinking about you and your lo. Looking forward to reading your happy announcement that the baby has been born SOON.

My A/C didn't get fixed today (again!). The owner of the company swears he's coming to my house first thing tomorrow morning to fix it himself. : We'll see.

Did my glucose screening thing today. I'll get the results in two weeks. I would be surprised if there was any problem. They were a bit late drawing my blood after I drank the syrupy stuff. I hope that doesn't affect anything.

I hope you all have a GREAT weekend.

Awww... thanks, Jencat! Today's number is 289, which is a tiny bit less than doubling, but I took it in the afternoon on Wednesday and in the morning today (so, slightly less than 48 hours) so I'm happy with the number.

to you and your DH, what a hard decision to have to make. I'm sorry about your doggie.

I hope, for your sake, it isn't another 3 weeks! They have the "sticky baby vibes" smilie , where's the "okay, it's time to unstick now" smilie?
