Korey~ Vacuuming injury!? That's a new one! If only we didn't have wood floors, so I could use that as an excuse! ( A bit of a sore spot with me, as I've been doing all the housework lately, and DP's claims of being 'too busy with schoolwork' kind of lose their water when I come home to find her watching Oprah) BUT I'm glad that your various specialists are helping you. And that you have a shower this weekend~ woohoo! Our anatomy scan is November 23, so we'll really have something else to be thankful about!

I had no idea that there is a "right way" to vacuum (lunging forward and using your legs) and a "wrong way" to vacuum (twisting with your torso)! Obviously, I was doing it wrong. Apparently, you can easily injure yourself vacuuming when you're not pregnant, but pregnancy hormones (even just progesterone) loosen everything up and make you more susceptible to injury.

So, ladies, you have a very good excuse not to vacuum for a while!

Um, hi I think I may be ready to join.

After what can only be described as 6 days of the most heinous emotional roller coaster that I've ever been on, including bleeding, cramping, low betas and all, I got my third beta and it looks like everything is going in the right direction! The numbers are still low (133, and I'm now at 19DPO) and after two other early losses I am still EXTREMELY cautiously optimistic, but, I am pregnant RIGHT NOW! Due date is July 9th, and our first US is the 15th.

Hi, thought I would jump in and add some pics to quasar's story. I was super geeked to catch the babe and still find it funny that quasar was yelling at me to drive faster in the parking garage.

In no particular order...

Yay to Smartycat and Quasar on the arrival of your baby boy. He looks absolutely lovely.

Milletpuff - I'm sending happy sticky and growing vibes to your little one.

Korey - Vacuuming injury? I'm totally going to use that one. I can see it now, "Honey, did you know that vacuuming is apparently on the no-no list for pregnant ladies?"

Wehrli - I forgot to comment a while back, but it seems that everything is going great with your pregnancy. I'm crossing fingers for both of us this week on our anatomy scans!

DW and I are moms to two teens (DD 17 and DS 15) adopted through CAS in 2007 and a toddler (DD 2) born at home in March 2011.

Monarchgrrl- she is beautiful, thank you for sharing those pictures

Smartycat and Quasar- such a handsome man! Thanks for sharing

Keep the the baby pictures coming, love it!

AFM- Enjoying the last few hours of vacation, we had a great week off and got a lot of baby related things done. We painted the nursery, checked out some daycares, met with the lawyer that is handling the 2nd parent adoption, picked a pediatrician, signed up for birthing classes, I finally finished changing my last name over so we will all have the same last name, and we registered. I am feeling a little more prepared now

Only 3 months to go until she is here! I had an ultrasound today because they were concerned during my last that she only measured in the 18th percentile for growth. Today she measured in the 53rd percentile which is a relief.

Quasar/Smartycat~ What a great name! Very classic and dignified.

Monarch~ Your kiddo's such a cutie!! I love her name too, it's on our list.


Burg~ Glad your bambina's growing like she should. Two weeks 'til our anatomy scan and we're very excited.

Had our first Bradley Method class yesterday. It looks like a good group and a good program, I'm feeling very positive.

I am doing lol!  I have been laying low and will probably continue to do so for the next few weeks.  I can't wait to get to hear the heartbeat and stop worring.  I have about 11 more days until I hit 12 weeks and then I should feel some relief smile.gif

Millettpuff - Congrats and best wishes on a easy and comfortable pregnancy!!!!

 

Monarch and Smartycat - those are some cutesy wootsy babies and very nice names! Just looking at them gets me excited about seeing my own!

 

I hope everyone is doing well here. I'm 35 weeks today and was put on bedrest last week due to high blood pressure. Luckily it's not strict bedrest and at home. I haven't checked in here in quite a while so I wanted to see how everyone is doing.

 

Our first baby shower is this Friday from our co-workers. We just planned our baby shower for the first weekend in December and our church is throwing us one on an unspecified date. Today, we got a highchair delivered from some co-workers which completely took me by surprise. There's been a lot of drama behind our shower that I think is almost over. My family originally wanted to plan it but dropped the ball so we had to step in because we were being asked by so many friends about it. We really didn't want to be involved and it shows me how important my family feels this is to me. It sucks but we're gonna move on.

 

My sister has started on the mural in the baby's room so we're excited about that too.

 

Only 4 more weeks, unless baby decides to come early. The Dr is going to induce me since I'm on blood thinners by 39 weeks and I've made my peace with it once I did ample research.

 

Ok, I've gone on too much. Everyone take care of yourselves and your little ones!!!

 


Madly in love w/DW by the same name, mourning the baby girl we lost and expecting another baby in December 2010!

I was in a minor car accident last night and had to be monitored at the hospital overnight. It is not even a month since my 3 day stay in the hospital after a fall at work. I can use lots of finger crossing that the next 3 months are uneventful. Thankfully the baby is OK but I don't know how many more scares I can take.

Burg -  Be careful out there!  No more scary moments.  Let the rest of your pregnancy be boring, boring, boring!!

 

Kimlyn - My goodness, you're so close.  Lucky you.  Hope the shower(s) go well and that you get some downtime during your modified bed rest.

 

AFU - We went for our anatomy scan yesterday and everything looks good.  It was a family affair - I had DW, our DS and DD, and our donor in the room.  The baby is stubborn just like Mom and made it difficult to get all of the measurements done.  The baby's head was jammed into my pelvis and just didn't want to move in response to any of our tech's usual tricks.  I had to pretend like I was walking up stairs, puff out my belly, roll onto my side and do pelvic bridge raises.  Nothing made it budge.  The baby never moved it's head, but turned enough so that the tech could get the finicky head measurements.

 

The best part though is that we finally got to figure out the sex.  We didn't really care, but our son was pretty set on having a little brother.  We wanted to give him 20 weeks to adjust either way.  Fortunately, and with 85% accuracy, we know that we're expecting a daughter.  We're having a girl . We're so excited (well, most of us, we'll just have to wait for DS to come around).


DW and I are moms to two teens (DD 17 and DS 15) adopted through CAS in 2007 and a toddler (DD 2) born at home in March 2011.

Burg! Yikes!  Be careful!  This stress can't be good for either of you.  I hope the rest of your pregnancy is extremely uneventful.

 

 

Gumshoe~ My condolences to your son, but hooray for the rest of you. Sorry she was so stubborn. I guess that's a taste of things to come, eh?

 

Kimlyn~ I second the call for pix of the mural!  DP and I are trying to decide on paint. We want green, so we can get started no matter what the baby might be.  I can't stand the ALL PINK or ALL BLUE nurserys anyway. 

 

Nothing much going on with me.  Delightfully dull.  Our anatomy scan's the 22nd. I'm very much looking forward to it.

afu, speaking of anatomy scans... we had ours this morning!!! it was so amazing!! we weren't finding out the sex but the tech said she couldn't tell anyway. our little monkey kept their legs closed tight! the tech said every thing looked good, baby "weighs" 13 oz. we don't get the official results from our doc until monday probably. here are some pics:

Wehrli~ Cute pix! I'm glad all looks well, and that the li'l monkey cooperated on your wish not to know.  Green is good. We're looking for something bright and apple-y, but not minty or Mountain-Dew-y.  I'm terrible at choosing colors, though, so that doesn't help.  Our scan is very soon. I still think it's  a boy, but keep having dreams that it's  a girl. Odd.
