kim - yup that was us who got a peace sign. Yay baby! I think you are reasonable expecting your husband to go through counseling, and think long and hard about whether *you* love him and want him back as a husband. He can still be involved in his daughter's life even if you two aren't married, but you have to be committed to him to stay together. If you aren't really in love with him, the marriage won't do anything good for your daughter.
Hope that's not too much advice!
Danielle - I'm glad your amnio went well. I'll be thinking about you tomorrow like I was today!!
Lazuli - eat cheese fries!! Can I have a chili dog with that please?!!
We have a Chicago eatery down the street from us. I could eat their cheese fries til the cows come home... I personally, being someone who weighs more than the medical establishment believes I should, would have a hard time taking advice, much less criticism, from someone who weighed 70 pounds as an adult. From what I have read baby doesn't take nutrition from any of your stores, but what you eat daily. That means that *you* rely on your stores - which would explain why I personally have lost weight but have been gaining, if that makes any sense - my rings are loose, my watch, my clothing, but I gain weight "on the baby". I hope that you find understanding that can balance out your mom's attitude!
Julia - yes, I found Calidou online too, but I'd like to be able to locate it retail so I could try it or even just smell it before dropping such a large amount of money on it... they are expensive. Maybe someone will pluck it off of our registry for us...
Sarah - I hope that the change of doctor is worth it for you and Jack!
Caroline - hope you're feeling better soon. Sometimes you do what you've got to do to feel better. Healing vibes!
A few of Jo's spots are starting to crust over, but she is still confined at home tomorrow. She should be back to work on Monday.
WE'RE HALFWAY THROUGH TODAY! 20 weeks done!
Time for dinner!
ps: Rachel: go on the assumption that you're measuring big... if you have your due date adjusted, you run more of a chance of your practitioner saying you're overdue and wanting to induce. So i've heard.
edited for a number of typos and omitted words - guess I really do need to eat.
