courtney, thank you so much for putting together the yahoo group! i LOVE the gallery! you all are look so wonderful and i just adore the pictures of the other family members! i'll upload some photos soon too... the only belly shots i have right now are me in a bikini and i don't know if i'm brave enough to share those yet!
lucysmama, i hope the house works out for you guys, it sounds wonderful!
piglet, i'm glad the change in attitude has really improved the night nursing for you and emily.
krnflwr and ameliabedelia, i hope the nursing gets easier for you too. sorry it's so uncomfortable. i can't imagine nursing right now. my nipples are so much happier when left alone.
gottaknit, sorry about the pelvic pain... the loosening of the pelvis has been kind of weird for me too. sometimes achey, but nothing bad really. unfortunately i slightly pulled my left groin while climbing last friday but i think it's getting better (although it hurt when i tried to pull my shoe off after yesterday's workout).
mtnjenny, i've always wanted to live in a log home! i did read misconceptions about a year ago. it was pretty harsh, but a worthwhile read (and i was much happier to have read it before actually being pregnant). another book i really liked was "having faith" - still critical in certain ways but a much warmer read.
mirthfulmom, sorry about the molars... they'll be in soon. and congratulations on getting so close to your degree!!! how exciting!
momadance, please share more about the time capsule!!! that's so neat!
hormones are interesting... i'm generally super-happy all the time. today though we had a little group meeting at work and my section of it didn't go great and it really got me down, way more than it should have. ah well, i'm feeling mostly better about it now. it helps that the baby is all active since lunch - that feels wonderful. my hunger is really sporadic, but i had a bananananana and a nectarine this morning too!
oh, gosh, and names... dh and i are having the hardest time with them!!! we're planning to see the baby first but we are even having a hard time coming up with a list of favorites, especially girl names. we got a big kick out of the name generator at http://www.behindthename.com/random.html
with the categories on the right like witch, hillbilly and wrestler. try it - it's funny!
ok, i hope i didn't miss anyone. i should really get back to work. it's not been a very fruitful week at the office, which stresses me slightly but i know it will pass. having a baby on the way makes me feel the weight of responsibility more since i'll be the primary wage earner from now on and dh will be the primary care giver at home with the baby.
it's all ok though.
can you tell i'm procrastinating?
ok, i'm really getting back to work now.
this time for sure...
