Thank you so much! And no, the tech didn't tell me and also apparently didn't even report it, because I specifically asked the doctor for the number and she said it wasn't included. Why would they not do that...

Keep us updated on your ankle -- I'm wishing things weren't so hard right now.

I just saw that the Feb DDC has so many Vday due dates! What's that about!!? DD was almost a week late but DS was a week early and I feel like earlier is probably more likely - who knows. I hope things are going better w/ your mom!!

I'm sorry you are experiencing this. Please keep us updated -- hoping baby is just in a certain spot making it harder to feel right now!

Yeah, it was odd -- my nausea was gone yesterday and didn't come back until this afternoon, and it's still pretty mild. I mean, I guess I should be happy for the reprieve, but man it's nerve wracking even though I know they can come and go a bit. Hope you get some reassuring symptoms soon. Although "crappy" sounds pretty much right on track, lol.

Jenjy that is weird it wasn't recorded. My dr was going to do an ultrasound last time bc she couldn't find the heartbeat. She said she knew the baby was ok bc she could hear it moving and kicking but had to know the heart rate!

Ok to the first time mamas..... Be prepared to make cleaning poop a full time job lol! My 5 year old, yes 5, pooped in the tub but was scared to tell me so she tried to clean it up herself. But I found the washcloth. Them I had to clean the whole bathroom bc I didn't know what she touched. My one year old went through a stage where he stuck his hands down his diaper every time he pooped. Not to mention when they are new borns and it explodes out of their diapers every five minutes. Oh and if you are not cloth diapering only use pampers snugglers for the first couple months. No other diaper will hold lol. Ok that was my rant for the night. I just get so sick of cleaning poop. Lol

@apeydef oh great! Hahaha I've been hearing so many poop horror stories and they are scaring the crap out of me! (No pun intended). I have been getting really bad headaches the past couple days. Not sure if its the hormones or what.

@jenjy I saw that too! I wonder how many will actually arrive on valentines day!

@apeydef could be that too. My allergies are always acting up.

I think I have an ear infection but I don't know because in order to go to the urgent care clinic I have to call the nurses hotline and get their ok to go. So I was talking to an RN on the phone, explaining my symptoms (swollen lymph nodes in neck, sore tonsils, excruciating ear pain.) I even told her I was pregnant. By the end of the call she advised me to nurse my symptoms at home. Really!? Can't a pregnant lady catch a break? I'm worried that my infection is going to somehow hurt the baby and it's scaring me. Luckily my symptoms are starting to disappear so I think I kicked the bug. Damn tricare really bugs me sometimes. BAMC is way too far to be driving out there at 8pm. Hopefully I can find a midwife near me that takes tricare prime. Also I've been craving Spanish food really bad for about two days? Like real authentic Dominican or Puerto Rican food. Anyone else having intense cravings??

@apeydef I had a migraine for 3 days straight when I was pregnant with DS. I finally broke down and called my OB. He sent me to the ER where they took me straight back and hooked me up to IV fluids, gave me zofran, Benadryl, and something else. The Benadryl knocked me out so fast I don't remember the third drug they gave me but I slept like a baby for 6 hours in the ER room. Haha! I hope your headache goes away soon!
As for the poop thing @bren94 I have a funny one for you! My sister who is 10yrs younger than me was changing my son's diaper when he was about a month old. She was 12 at the time. As soon as she wiped his little bum he shot poo right out (it basically exploded!!!) and hit her legs and the carpet and even a baseboard 10 ft away! I know it's a little TMI but if you could have seen her face it was priceless!

Bren an ear infection can go away on it's own! Maybe wait until your OB appt. and just have them check you out.

My friend's 3 year old daughter has been potty trained for quite some time, and occasionally wears the pull ups still. Esp if they aren't sure of a bathroom situation while driving or out, etc etc. But if she's feeling "rebellious," she will poop in the tub and run around screaming about it and waving her pull up or underpants. Terrible threes at their finest.

@apeydef I know I know and normally I'm all for just sucking it up but it's so painful and I'm just paranoid about the infection hurting my pregnancy. But then I'm paranoid about antibiotics hurting it too so I'm conflicted. I'll look into natural remedies.

@dmariev I'll look into that! Thanks!

@bren94 I've had 2 ear infections since my pregnancy began. There are many successful (at least for me) at home remedies. Is it just your ear hurting or has it affected your jaw? If it's just the ear, take a hand towel and soak it in hot water. Lay it on a pillow and then lay your ear on it. That helps me with pressure and getting out any build up. If it's affecting your jaw, a piece of garlic clove on the gum line where the pain is located is one of the most fabulous things I've discovered this year. Those are the simple remedies. I've known women to pour hydrogen peroxide in their ear and then drain it and have no more ear infection. But I personally hate doing that. There are so many ideas, but those are what I've had the most success with. When I'm not pregnant, amoxycillian (sp?) has been my lifelong, antibiotic friend.

Oh and avoid trying to make your ear "pop." That does nothing except a funny little sound.

HAHAHAHA!!!! That cracks me up! I find it funny how people who don't have kids say, "oh, has so and so gone through their terrible twos yet?" I want to just shake them and say if you only knew... It's not the twos you need to worry about. It's the threes! Haha

Onion or garlic oil, I've heard both.

You would think that, but somehow I haven't to this day. I had terrible ear issues since I was a baby, and to this day I still do.

As for the terrible threes- my friend's daughter is 3 going on 30, declared one of her parent's employees her "boyfriend," insists on approving every outfit that is picked out for her, and many many other interesting things. Love her to death though.

Okay. I have a poop story. Well, it's really a story mostly about DD's incredible memory, but it involves poop. Okay. So she's 7 now. There was an event that happened when she was either a late 2 or maaaaaybe a very young 3. My mom had sent us home with an ABC book that had a CD with it, where each letter had its own little song. Cute little book. Anyway. She woke up from a nap one day and had pooped, and had used the poop to coat the CD and also mash it into the cover of the book (which had an inset decoration made of corrugated cardboard). No saving the book, so I tossed it. I did eventually get the CD cleaned up enough so that it would play, but I eventually tossed it, too, because it just made me feel a little weird playing it. I didn't make too huge a deal of it at the time. I don't even think I did any sort of discipline or explanation to her because she was just THAT young. I called Mom about it a couple of days later, but that was it. I didn't go on and on about it or anything. Now, fast-forward to a couple of weeks ago. She and DS1 were trying to watch a DVD which was skipping, so I took it out and found that DS1 had put his fingerprints all over it. I took it into the kitchen to clean it with some glass cleaner, and DD followed me in there. After a minute of watching me, she said, "I remember you cleaned one of my CDs one time when I was little and didn't know any better and got poop all over it." Whoa. Yes, DD, you're right. How did you remember that???

Going into Texas Roadhouse for dinner tonight (my sister is a server who is also on the management team) and what do we see? A pair of heavy set (truly obese) women walking in with a boy no older than 6 years old and they are bringing him in with a Mcdonalds happy meal! Really?!? They could have gotten him something far healthier here. I know I'm not little by any means but to see them forcing their poor choices on him is not right.
Ok end rant...

Eek. My future children will not be eating mcdonalds (or any fast food if I can help it) when they're with me. If they're with friends and those parents choose to feed them crap, I'll let it slide, but never with me. I truly don't judge parents that feed their kids that junk (my parents sure did) but I just don't understand it. Yeah it's quick but there are equally quick healthier choices and yeah your kids want it but if your kids wanted to ride without a seatbelt you'd say no. I guess in moderation it isn't awful but I just don't see the point. It's so gross.

I will say that I had my fair share of happy meals as a kid and I turned out alright. I was also active all day everyday and always outside. My parents also made sure to prepare healthy meals throughout the week most of the time. My kids will probably taste fast food here and there but honestly.. mcdonalds (and the idea of it especially now that I think nausea is starting to kick in) sounds freaking disgusting.

Honestly y'all don't sound judgy... I was just floored because the kid was already overweight for his age and they had a happy meal for him when they could have taken him inside and gotten him food that was healthier (steak bites and a vegetable or apple sauce) and because it's Monday it was "kids night" he could have eaten for $1.99 instead of the almost $4 the happy meal cost them.
