Figured we might as well start our April thread. Anyone get any pranks pulled on them or pull any today? Usually I think of something to do to dh today, but haven't come up with anything good yet. Wish I had an appt today so I could tell him mw said twins!

Steph - glad your appt went well. How long have you been out of the states for? I am also so glad to leave and so glad to come home

Caroline - sorry you have been puking! I bet it will go away soon.

I'm off on Thursdays, so I'm having fun just lazing around with Jack. Might get some bins so I can start packing some. We are moving in a month and a half, but I HATE packing and like to do it slow and easy. We were going to be renting an apt, but dh's dad does that as seen on tv home buying and reselling. Well, he told dh he would buy a house we pick out (in price range of course) and let us rent it from him. He's kind of an ass most of the time, but I'd just about sell my soul not to be in an apt again, so we'll see how this works out.

Caroline, I forgot to say you are so right about not remembering how bad it can be. For 8 weeks this pregnancy I was laying on the couch all day wanting to die (at one point I even told dh I wish I could go to the hospital and just be put in a coma until this part was over). I swore that this was it no more babies, I will never do this again. Now, it's like, what was so bad about it? I must have been exaggerating!

Happy April Fools Day! I love April!

OK, now that its a new thread and I can't scroll down to remember everything everyone said, I'm lost. Anyone else have a piss poor memory lately? I'm blaming it on pregnancy, whether that's where its coming from or not.

Steph, how exciting that you are on the move soon, it will be fun! I hope we both get some good sleep soon! Sounds like your appt was good, no worries is the best way to go! So you will have to go and find a new doc/midwife when you finally get home, huh? That will be a project, hopefully an easy one.

Anna, I hope the pain goes away before the baby comes! Maybe more things will move around and make it go away. Have you considered acupuncture?

Sarah, thanks for starting the new thread. I hope your move goes easily and smoothly. A house would be wonderful!

I have thought about birth a lot so far during this pregnancy and just last night I realized that I never think much past delivery, meeting baby and breastfeeding for the first time. But I realized I never thought of things like putting on baby's first diaper and clothes, how that will be, what time of day it will be, who we will call first, and how many calls we will have to make. I am feeling lots of excitement over this, but ever so glad to have several months still to get there.

Anyway, gonna be a warm one here today with snow expected for tonight, better get out and enjoy the warmth while I can! Happy Day!

Yesterday, I FINALLY went to visit my garden to see how it was doing. (the site our wedding last spring, we restored / planted a garden) The weather has not cooperated with my schedule for afew weeks now and boy was it exciting to see all the plants coming up. There are daffodils and iris showing as well as tiny little bleeding hearts, columbine and jacobs ladder! One foxglove has made it through the 2nd winter and should actually bloom this year!

Yeah Flowers!

As i was raking last years dead leaves out of the beds i thought about how all my fears and anxieties about the future were like the leaves in the bed. The leaves serve a purpose in the winter and early spring, they protect the plants from the worst of the weather, and nourish the soil. The plants WILL come up through those leaves regardless of my raking them out or not. However, there comes a time in the spring, when removing those leaves, allows the plants to receive more light, the ground to warm up more and the plants to REALLY grow.
So, I need to start cleaning up all my fears and anxieties, so i can really GROW!

Listening to the universe

A Tricky April 1 to All:

It's great to read everyone's news. I too think that I can feel movements--I'm pretty sure that's what it is! And I heard a heartbeat, so there's definitely something going on. It's not just the weirdest flu ever. I'm pretty sure it's a boy.

Remind me *not* to travel unecessarily when pregnant--my trip to San Antonio was lovely, except that I felt crappy for much of it. I think that air pressure, time zone changes, different food and a strange bed are just that much harder on a pregnant body. I found out that I'm having what I think are called "rounding pains"--ligaments stretching all around the bottom and sides of my emerging belly. Not sharp pain but definite discomfort. It's absolutely cut into my running (like, no running). Sigh.

Woohoo! we have a subforum!! I love having all these threads!!!

adventure girl- I remember with my first I read all I could on pg and birth. It didn't occur to me to read any baby care books or bf books. After dd was born I was so nervous to dress her etc. After the first day I was reading the LLL book womanly art of bf like mad to try and catch up.

bananagirl- thanks for such an inspirational thought. It was just what I needed to read!!!

RaeinBC- I have been having round ligament pain too. No fun! I hope it goes away soon for you.

I can hardly believe I am already 18 weeks. This pg is going way too fast for me. My oldest daughter (8) is showing some interest in being at the birth. I have a great sibling at birth video and some really nice books. I am so excited if she does want to.

We heard heart tones yesterday, always such a reassurance. Babe is really active in the morning as well between 6:30-7:00.

I love April Fools Day!! I have such fun tricking dh. The kids have had a blast being in on tricking daddy as well. He needed a new briefcase so I bought one exactly like his old one but filled it with goodies ect. so it would weigh/feel the same as his old one and set it out for this am. He ended up being a little behind this am so he didn't even notice. He came back a couple hours later to exchange bags ! Its a good thing his work is only 5 mins from home. Later I went and moved his truck to the next parking lot over, can't wait 'til he discovers that!!

Have a great day!
Sarah

Sarah,

I was the exact opposite with my 1st pregnancy. I spent all my time reading about AP and breastfeeding and NOTHING about birth. I had a cesarean, but also a very successful nursing relationship.

What sibling at birth video do you have? I own Gentle Birth Choices and my 6 year old son likes to watch it. Im also letting him watch the videos that my midwife loans me because I would really like for him to be at my babys birth and be prepared.

Last year on April Fools Day, my husband was in the bedroom, and I was in the living room. We have a large picture window, so I said, "Oh MY GOD! Look at THAT!"

My husband says "What?" from the other room, totally not interested.

I said, "There is a woman jogging down the street in a sports bra with HUGE boobs!"

He ran from the bedroom to the window so fast, going "Where? Where?"

"April Fools, horndog!"

He's a breast man, all the way! LOL!

Lynsey- my video is called "Children at Birth" it is a bradley method video put out by academy communications.

DH had a lot of fun explaining in his meeting this am and sharing the treats. He thought my moving his truck was pretty funny after he found it. He had forgotten I had keys to it. All in all a pretty fun day.

I'm off to bed, I can't believe how posty I have been today. Gotta get some sleep before my nursling wakes up at 4am!!

I woke up this morning totally craving Count Chocula cereal, mmmmmmmmmm those chewy, stale, chocolatey marshmallows. Went to the grocery store up the street and they don't have it! But I won't be discouraged. Taking Noah to another grocery store now.

Hope you all are well!
Love,

Chrissy, lucky mama to Noah (9), Lilah (6), Rowan (3) and Laney (1).

Happy April ladies!

Chrissy-I haven't heardof/seen Count Chocula in ages!!!! Good luck on your search.

I totally let April Fools get by without any tricks on my dh, darn. Maybe next year. You guys definitely had some good ones.

Anna-hope your pain subsides soon and you're feeling better.

Not too much reading here about after the birth either. Anyone have any suggestions?? I'll read The Womanly Art of BF and I've heard The Baby Book by Sears was good. Any others????

Went out for a couple of long bikerides the past two days...of course my cycling shorts don't fit anymore, so my bum is totally sore I know dh is going to try to get me to go today, but no way!

Hope you all enjoy your Friday!!!

Happy Friday, woo-hoo its the weekend!

Danielle, that April Fool's joke made me :LOL nice one!

Chumani, my dh would freak if he couldn't find his truck, nice job.

Rachel, sorry your trip was uncomfortable, better to find out now!

Anna, what a wonderful post, thanks for sharing. I really like that metaphor and will use it, it fits so well.

I'm really tired today, we stayed up way late last night, went to see some local music, but now I'm bushed. Looking dreary outside, perfect day for napping.

Any fun plans for the weekend?

We are visiting with some friends from Florida who are here for a ski vacation tonight, and going to a "progressive" party tomorrow, the kind where you move from house to house. Should be fun. Expecting snow again, haven't had any yet.... we need it bad there are already wildfires burning. Time to go do a snow dance.

Nice April Fools jokes! I completely forgot to do something!

I've been having a lot of round ligament pain. It is quite sharp too and uncomfortable, but it means growth, right? That's exciting.

All these threads are totally overwhelming! I need hours to check them out. Luckily I do have hours of time, just not now.

I've also been reading about post-birth issues, including a lot on sleeping arrangements. My friends are struggling right now, so it's become a topic of interest. The most interesting thing I've read so far that I will keep in mind is that just when you feel like you can't stand something a certain pattern any longer, it changes. This is also what has just happened with my friend. Bf is also an interesting subject, especially about the latch, the jost memorable line there was, "remember, you don't nipple feed, you breast feed." Can't wait to go to the library when I get home.

I told a Bradley instructor that I decided to go with someone else because I had received some negative feedback about her and she had never answered my question about price. She sent me back a rather nasty email, so I guess that is double confirmation that she was not a good choice. Still, I hate to have hurt her feelings, but doesn't every business owner want to know about the feedback going around about them? I thought it was constructive, but apparently not.

Happy weekend all,

Steph

The only April Fools joke I played was on my best friend. I told her that another mutual friend of ours had her baby (she is actually due tomorrow).

That didnt require much thought.

So glad it is Friday!!! Every other weekend, Jack and I sleep over at my best friend's house (who has a 2 year old). It is so fun and relaxing. I leave lots of our "supplies" there, so I don't even have to pack much.

greenbeing - I can't say enough about The Baby Book. In a year and a half, my copy is so dogeared. It is the first place I turn for just about everything Jack related. It is indispensable.

I haven't figured out what we're going to do with Jack during the birth yet. He'll be at the house I'm sure, but I don't know who will be in charge of him. Although knowing him, he will probably get a kick out of grunting and moaning along with me.

Guess I should go and pretend to work for a little bit....Happy Weekend!

Hello everyone. I'm new here. My name is Andrea and I'm due on 9-21. I have a daughter who was born on 9-25-02. I was wondering why all the posts are on one thread? It's kind of hard to keep up that way. I didn't know if you all liked it this way or what. I look forward to getting to know you all!

Well I had to take my son to the Dr. today because he has a rash that I thought was strep throat/scarletina and I feel that that is def. something to get antibiotics for, but it turns out he has fifths disease. The dr. said that I need to get tested to see if I have antibodies against it and gave me an info sheet saying that of all the women who arent immune to it (maybe 1 %) 10% of their babies will be born with severe anemia and 2% will die.

Has anyone else here had the experience of being exposed to Fifths and what did you do?

Oh Lynsey, I just went through this, but it turned out my daughter did not have it. I was given the same info as you. I don't have any advice, just hugs becuase I know how you must be nervous right now. Just look at the numbers, there really is no chance your baby will be affected...

Caroline,

Thanks for writing. Yes, Im wondering if its even worth it to get the blood test because it doesnt seem very likely that the baby would be affected. How is a severely anemic baby treated anyways?

How did you find out your daughter didnt have it? I didnt get the blood test for him because I just figured I would get it instead and save us from both getting stuck.

I guess I will have to do some research tonight when the kids are in bed.

Welcome Andrea! I am due the day after you are!

I like all the posts being on the one thread because its easier for me to keep up with and know what I have and havent read already. JMO.


Sistermama,

My daughter is about 5 months older than Jack and we will have her here for the birth. Either dh or a good friend will "take care of her" while I labor - the hubby is NOT good labor support so he will be being put to use elsewhere. Hopefully it will be during the night though so she will be sleeping!

Well, one of my 2cd daughters problems was severe anemia, but it stemmed from a blood disorder. She needed transfusions to get through the first few weeks before they were able to pin down what was causing it....

My daughter showed signs of fifths, and was exposed to it, so I assumed she had it. But when I took her in, turns out she didn't. The nurses gave me info when I was there, before she ssaw the dr, and I looked it up myself...

Anyway, I don't have the info saved, sorry, I usually save everything I find. How are they treating him?

Well its a virus...It cant be treated with medicine. He already has the rash so hes past the contagious stage.

Hes not really being treated. He hasnt actualy felt bad at all from it. I only took him in because I thought he had strep.

Welcome, Andrea! Its great to have you with us! If you use the email option for when a new post is posted in a subscribed thread, it makes this format really easy. The email link takes you directly to where you last left off.

Lynsey, I'm sorry about the Fifth's Disease in your little boy and the scare for you. It looks like super low risk, so that's great. Hope it all clears up soon.

Danielle, hope that double just flys by for you today and you come home with some big bucks.

We got almost a foot of sloppy wet snow last night, great, great, great for the moisture factor and hopefully its not killing anything in my garden, should just be doing good things out there.

DH is getting us a free hot tub today! Yippeeeeee!!!! He is a carpenter and will be tearing down a house soon to build a new one, there is a hot tub inside that the owners were looking to give away and we got lucky! I am so excited, have been wanting one forever! I am having visions of myself laboring in there on a beautiful sunny colorful Fall day. If anything it will sure help with the back soreness that has been bugging me like crazy.

Have fun weekends everyone!

Holy cow! One day away from my desk and all these messages to read! I took the entire day off on Friday and stayed in BED! It turns out, I sprained my wrist some time last week and by Thursday I was icing and wrapping it.
Anyway, the misery of the day culminated in one of THOSE headaches and I ended up barfing my head off in public, at work! Once I started, i just kept barfing. I actually broke some blood vessels on my FACE from throwing up!!!! AAARGGGHHH! It looks like freckles, or a rash or something, but it's burst blood vessels and they aren't gonna go away for awhile.
Once I got in to see my chiropractor my wrist and headache got WAYYYYYY better, but the barfing didn't stop till i fell asleep on an EMPTY stomach.
So friday was a LAZY, LaZY, Lazy, lazy day for me. I stayed in my jammies untill 5:30 p.m. I had a super yummy BLT and read alot. YAY!
Today has been super fun so far. I am currently taking a ceramics class at the college where I work. (Auditing instead of for credit) And we are currently working with earthenware and today was the big firing. Our instructor has a farm outside of Madison and we set up a traditional bonfire style firing for this set of work. So i got to help pile up the pots and build the fire. Had to leave before the really fun part where you smother the fire with sawdust and manure! anyway, the pots should come out of the fire with some areas completely blackened while others will remain an earthy, terra cotta shade! A very traditional approach to pottery, not all glassy and brightly colored but lovely all the same. It is gorgeous out today, all sunshiney and springy. It was fun to be out in the country and to see his studio and HUGE outdoor wood fired kiln. He has a very unique set up and it was fun to tour the place.

So, here I am at work. Time to go sort some mail so i can leave. But I am really looking forward to the rest of this weekend. We are going to a Pow Wow later this evening and tomorrow we have plans to see a movie and Hubby is getting his very first Tatoo! I wish it was always the weekend!!!!

Welcome Andrea! I hope you have fun exploring our little club and finding all the threads we have going.

Lynsey, I am soooo sorry to hear about your worries! I will be thinking of you and sending happy healing thoughts to you and your family.

Adventuregirl i hope you garden is happy and enjoys the extra moisture. Those plants are tougher than you think... Oh and so jealous about the hot tub! Sounds marvelous!!!!!

Steph glad you are doing well and enjoying the respite from work. I hope traveling goes well for you and i am looking forward to when you will have more consistent access to a computer. Take care!

Jen WE MISS YOU! Come back from your trip soon!!!

P.S. Am feeling the "baby love" alot more in the last few days. It seems like I am starting to feel more connected to the "joy" part and less to the "ordeal" part.
For instance.. Last night as I lay awake in bed at 3 in the morning, resenting my snoring husband, and wishing i was asleep....someone let me know that they were awake too! It was such a distinct thump from inside my uterus that I layed there grinning thinking it was well worth every minute of sleeplessness to feel that little hello. I promptly fell asleep with a smile on my face.

hi all!

anna, that pottery thing sounds really cool! what a great way to spend a spring day.

sheryl, woo hoo on the free hot tub score!! i would so love a hot tub, or even just a big bath tub.

3under3, hope your double shift doesn't tire you out too much and you make LOTS of tips!

welcome andrea! i am due exactly one week after you.

lynsey, i am sorry you are dealing with that scare. it does sound like there is little to worry about though and it sounds like you feel pretty calm about it too.

sarah, what fun to have sleepovers with your little ones!

steph, i've started having a lot of round ligament pain this week too. mostly it just feels sore, though sometimes i get sharper pains too.

oh girls, i have hemmorhoids. i don't even know if that's how you spell it, but i've got 'em. i acquired some while i was pushing noah's big old self out but they went away soon after his birth. for the past few days my bum has been kinda itchy though so i got out my mirror last night and took a look. sure enough i've got some little bulgy vein looking thingies. not sure what to do about them but i sure hope they don't get worse.

OH, i found count chocula. thank goodness. they had it in the special request section. i bought two boxes and have eaten one and a half already.

well, that's all for now. happy saturday,
chrissy

oh, i almost forgot! i have started to feel some movement!!! i only feel it when i am lying in bed at night before i fall asleep. it takes a few minutes and then mainly it feels just kind of fluttery, like something is going on in there, way down low. sometimes i will get a little flick or two. woo hoo!! i it!
