I'm so sorry!  How nerve wracking!  I wanted to share that my friend also tested positive for T18 via the quad screen and she opted for an amnio, which showed no issues.  Lots of false positives!  Crossing my fingers for a clean scan.  Keep us updated!

Congrats Mallory!

 

This baby is still lazy, but I'm learning to pay attention for the tiny flutters, where my girls all were BIG KICKERS! And maybe those are still in the future, who knows? I also think my cravings mean boy. I want to eat frat house food. Pizza rolls, beef jerky, ramen, pizza, nachos, etc. LOL I've taken to calling the baby Fratbaby.

 

Ugh. My cell phone has been giving me problems for months. My smartphone broke, I got an old flip phone of MIL's and the kids broke it by spilling something on it. So of course it malfunctioned today. Right as MIL was calling me. DH thankfully had his phone, and he'd just dropped our kids (the older two) off with her. Her and my BIL were cleaning/filling the pool for the kids and BIL dropped the pool on MIL's wrist! She was all scabbed up, her wrist was mangled and broken, and BIL and his GF have mental problems so the girls couldn't be left with them and MIL of course couldn't drive herself up there and been examined with kids in tow! Luckily DH was able to get off of work and go with her, and now the girls are spending the night with my mom instead. I REALLY need a new cell!

Serial post:


This is random, but still. Right now, we are in the path of the Missouri River flooding. We are in a town that was created when a natural flood caused the river to make an ox bow lake as the flood changed it's course. Levies have kept it from correcting it's path and reclaiming the ox bow. Now, the flooding north of us, combined with excessive rain and snow in MT, ND, and SD have cause the corp of engineers to have to release WAY more water from the dams than they usually do. We always get an annual spring flood. Minor. This year is NOT minor. Levies to our south are breaking, and the breaks are starting to happen closer to us. The local city governments are not being transparent at all, and all stories are pretty much a little information and a LOT of "don't worry, just trust us/the government and we'll take care of you."

 

Feel free to ignore the story in this link (http://www.wowt.com/home/headlines/Drilling_For_Water_At_Eppley_124508464.html?storySection=comments), but the picture at the top shows it all. The large expanse of water at the top should be an interstate and rural farmland/small communities. The horseshoe lake on the left is where I live. I live on the bottom of the right side of the lake, on the interior of the horseshoe. The airport levy is what is protecting our city. If it breaks, projections from the corps put us in the 10' of water range. The river is encroaching from all sides, and flood waters aren't expected to lower for MONTHS. I'm not worried about the levy being topped out, but they were meant to hold heavy rainfall for short periods of time, not sustain the pressure exerted by tons of extra water for months.

 

My initial worry right now is that if we have to evacuate, I have no clue where we'll wind up (if we'll stay in the area or relocate to a different division of the company DH works for), and how it may impact our birth plans.

I'm sorry Dennie!  So many issues for you this pregnancy!  I hope that you can catch a break soon and just be able to enjoy.  Frankly I feel that way, too. I feel like our good kharma has run out lately and I would just like some good things to happen for a change.  Our house is still not sold, still no renters, we have to move soon and have no where to live where we're moving, I don't know where or with whom I'll be giving birth, morning sickness lingers, two trips to the ER with ds, and just last night dd vomited twice at the ice cream shop before we got ice cream.  I would just like to feel like everyone is happy and healthy and we all have places to live and birth plans in place.  Sigh...

Jaimee- (((((()))))) Hopefully all this strife during our pregnancies means we get blessed with easy, peaceful labors, and laid-back, sleepy babies!

My ultrasound is Tuesday. So is dd1's sixth birthday. I don't think we want to find the sex out. And even if we do, we don't want to share. Meaning we don't find out AT the ultrasound since the kids are going with. I think I may call ahead and see if they can leave it in the chart to just give it to us on a piece of paper and we'll take an envelope. Then DH and I can decide if we want to open it or throw it away. Then again, how can you have that piece of paper and NOT look. LOL I do want to find out, but part of me doesn't. I am so convinced that this is a boy. I just feel it, and I don't know how I'd feel about being wrong. Not about having a girl. Four little girls running around sounds great! But just my intuition being SO off.

I have checkup on Monday and we'll find out when the anatomy scan will be on that day. I hope it'll be sometime this coming week! I'm dying to see if it's a boy or a girl!

Jaimee and Dennie, hoping this for both of you!

 

Miriam, congrats on your girls! 

 

KayPea and nmouse, hoping for good updates from both of you. hug2.gif

 

 

AFM, I've been MIA on vacation. We just got back tonight. It was fun but sorta stressful. My 6 and 9 yr olds fight all the time... it drives me insane! And of course being away from home made it worse. I'm glad to be back in our comfort zone. 

 

Baby is kicking a lot more often, but I'd still like to feel more. So far, only dd6 and dd9 have been able to feel him move. He stops kicking when daddy tries to feel it! I'm almost 21 weeks and glad to be past the halfway mark. 
 

 


Amanda, mom to dsd (16), dd (11), dd (8), and ds (born 11/12/11).

I am having my ultrasound NEXT Tuesday. Had a dr appt yesterday. I'd love to say I'm excited but I'm more anxious than ever to know if I'm having a boy. I love any baby I get, but I really NEED this baby to be a boy. lol I don't want anymore kids and Ray promised me he would find a way to get me pregnant again if it's a girl. lol
