all you ladies, if you have any advice, i'd appreciate it. i seem to have a bad cold - major conjestion, terrible cough, headache. seems more like a cold than the beginning of a flu. anyway, any advice on herbal/natural suppliments or therapies to help? i'm pumping up the vitamin C, have elderberry syrup, fluids, echinacea tea... really hoping i don't develop my old friend, bronchitis.
Esberitox is my best friend, whether I am pregnant, nursing or neither! Kids can take it, too! It's an immune booster and usually relieves those symptoms for me within 3 days. I buy it online because it's half the price than at the stores. HTH

Why would anyone volunteer when you do such a bangup job? haha! JK Seriously, you are great and I am a slacker! But I do try to post often!

My 20 week ultrasound is in 14 hours... I am nervous and excited! Not nervous that anything is wrong, mind you, but nervous that it's another boy! Aren't I so aweful? Our oldest 2 are girls and they are 22 and 13 and the other 4 are little handsome men! So I am wanting another little girl sooooo badly! But I DO LOVE MY BOYS! And will be happy to love another one! It's not like praying is going to make things change at this stage anyway!

But my fears/hopes of twins are gone as I know there's just one in there... too much research on my part has told me that. And that's okay. I think every woman at some point or another wants twins.

Other than that, my appetite is picking up, which is good. I'm now able to eat things I haven't been able to earlier. Not because I was sick, but just NOTHING sounded good! For lunch today, I made chicken salad with almonds, coconut, mayo and oranges. One of my faves! And for dinner, we had tamales, spanish rice and guac! Mmmmmmmmmm....

We are having one very healthy... baby boy!



It's okay... I cried on the way home and am okay now. I did this with the last one because I thought he was a girl, too! Then, I got over it and was so in love when he was born.

Now onto names...

awwww, - i really am sorry you aren't having your little girl, but CONGRATS on the ultrasound looking so great for your little guy, abigailgrace!!

are you already planning the next one??

mmm, that chix salad does sound good. i love making curry chix salad with lots of purple grapes, craisins, apple, celery, onion, and curry of course! ever since i learned to put 1/2 sour cream and 1/2 mayo, i don't feel like it's so fattening either.

Oh! Congratulations on your boy! I know. We kinda wanted a girl, too. But, boys are great! And they can kill all the spiders in the house for you!

Any misspellings or grammatical errors in the above statement are intentional;
they are placed there for the amusement of those who like to point them out.

I'm still adjusting to knowing I'm having a boy too. I have so many boys!

I get excited just imagining the sweet soft smell of his little head!

Congratulations, AbigailGrace!

I know what you mean about the naming. If this LO turns out to be a boy (as I would be a fool not to expect), it is the naming that is so hard. I think it is harder when you are older too. At least in my case most of my family and friends had kids younger than me, so if I rule out those names plus the names already used on the other three, the pool just keeps getting smaller.

It will be awhile before I will see what we are having. Truth is, I think I will feel a little grief either way because I know this will be our last.

Thanks everyone! A healthy baby is the best gift! (but I'm secretly hoping the tech just saw his umbilical cord in the wrong place! hahahaha!
