Shannon, I'm so glad you're doing better. I wish I knew what to say about the pain that you're living with on a daily basis. I'm so sorry. Just know that we're all here for you. On a more positive note, sounds like you and Heve had an enjoyable time and the blocks for Molly sound cute!
Kimba, I know how you're feeling about what to do with one of your dc while you're having the other! We're going through the same issue right now. I hope that things work out for you in some way.
Tricia, Hope you're getting some decent sleep now. And that you ended up having a great time in FL.
Monica, I'll keep you in my thoughts and hope that your dh will be able to be there for the birth of your baby. It is so hard to think that someone you love could have to be away from you at such an important time.
Amber, Fantastic news on the heartbeat! I'm so glad to hear it! You must be feeling very relieved.
Joy, I'll be 30 weeks on Tuesday! Can you believe it is here already? 3/4 of the way done!!!
Not much new for me. Had a really nice Thanksgiving except that my poor dd got pinkeye in both eyes and was not too happy. She did remarkably well though, even though she hated the medicine we had to put in her eyes. Poor baby.
I'm feeling like there is no way we're going to be ready for this baby. I'm a little annoyed, which I know I shouldn't be, but I've checked my registries and nothing has been purchased! My shower is on Dec. 19th. And there are about 5 people who haven't even RSVP'ed yet (out of maybe 12 that we invited). I'm worried that people are going to wait until the last minute to look at the registires, thinking that they can just run out to BRU and pick something up, and that they haven't realized that I really want cloth diapers! I think I'm going to end up with a bunch of cutesy pink clothes that I don't need.
Oh well. I shouldn't complain. I'm lucky to even have a shower for baby #2. It just seems like people aren't "into it" like they were with my first. And no one but me seems excited about my belly casting. I'm worried that other than the carseat (which my mom is buying) that I will have to purchase everything myself!
Okay, I feel like such a complainer, so I'll shut up now. Here's another thing, not about me. There's someone here on MDC whose story has touched me. She and her DH have been ttc for more than 2 years, unsuccessfully. She has had 4 failed IUI's. The next step would be IVF, but they're not sure they can afford it. I don't know her IRL, and I know that there are limits to how I can do things "legally" here at MDC. But I'd like to organize a fundraiser for her of some kind. Does anyone have any good ideas about how I could go about doing that? I was thinking about putting an ad in my signature, and setting up a website with information about how to donate money to her...but then she would find out about it, of course. Plus, I don't really know how to set up a website! Isn't there someone here who does that? Ideas and suggestions greatfully accepted!!
