I'm hanging in Leslie, I'm still in alot of pain but surviving--I think Heve can probably attest that I've been sacastic as all get out (I just sent her an email a while ago) and Steve definitely does not want to step out of line right about now :LOL
Molly went to the doctor today (family doc) and she's up to a whopping 8lbs, 1oz!!! Last Monday she was 7lbs 4oz--and before that it had taken her 2 weeks to gain 2 oz, so she's definitely on the right road now--although we do still have 3 or 4 projectile puking episodes a day--last night, picture it, 3:15 in the morning, she's fed, she's changed, she's burped, she's wailing, I finally put her in the swing, instantly she takes a deep breath and relaxes, 2 minutes later puke flies across the living room hitting the solid black dog square between the eyes--at least I got a laugh in the middle of the night

Warning...proud mama alert. Scott had a checkup with the mw today. She did the PKU test but Scott did wonderful. She had to poke him three times and I think it hurt me worse. Also, Scott now weighs 9 1/2 lbs!!!! He was down from 8lbs 14 ozs at birth to 8 lbs 4 ozs at his last check. That means he gained 1 lb 4 ozs in 9 days!!! What a big boy! I'm so proud.

We've been having some issues with him fussing lately. I got some gas drops today and he seems to be doing much better *knock on wood* and I'll be running to the HFS tomorrow to get the hyland's tablets that my mw recommended.

DH and I are going to be taking a short road trip to find him a place to live while he's at Ft. Lee, VA for training. It is definitely going to be interesting to travel. If you have any advice I'll be grateful...it will be a three hour car drive and we'll be staying in a hotel.

Amber, Bridget, and hevea...sending labor vibes your way. Hevea, I love the set up of the thread!!

Thanks, Christine for starting the thread! The list looks so pretty!! The week I started the thread, I had Sofia. Hopefully that will be the case for you! Hang in there! He/she will be here soon. Can't wait to hear all about your birth and to find out if you are have a little boy or a little girl! So exciting!!!

We are doing well. I don't have as much online time, but we will get back into a new normal soon and things will settle down. I have company through mid-March so after that we will figure things out.

I'll write more later!

Take care! Good luck for those in waiting.

Love, Tricia

Shannon: Glad to hear you are doing better.

Congrats to all the mamas and new babies. I can't wait to join you.

Yesterday was my due date and, so far as I know, there has been no further dilation beyond last Wednesday's 4cm and 90%. I had acupuncture on Wednesday to try to stimulate things, and did castor oil yesterday. I'm still pregnant today with no real timable contractions yet. And looking down the nose of a 10 1/2 lb baby at least. *sigh* Come Wednesday, my HMO is going to start the induction talk in full force, especially since all the home remedies aren't going anywhere. So don't delete me from the list yet. I'm still working on it.

Labour vibes to you, woolfairy! How did the castor oil go? Ii've heard that's not fun. You bet, you're on the list - we'll wait to hear your good news and I'll update it!

Heve... great list! Looks awesome and I love how you organized it from January to February. Very nice

Shannon: I just spit water out reading Molly's latest projectile puke story! : Poor doggy!

Labor vibes to you ladies. Looks like some March babies are going to be joining us soon.

Autumn is still sleeping. I wish she would wake up soon so she doesn't party all night. Nights are so not fun.

Monica-when korbin was 1 week old we traveled 20 hours and stayed in 1 hotel. It was hard make sure you sit in the back with him. Nursing in the car SUCKS. You have to lean over and it feels like an eternity especially when you have tiny boobs like me! The good new was he did great he would eat and then I would burp him when we went to one of the ultra nice rest stops along the way and change him and then on the road again! Being squished up in a car seat helped him not get hungry so fast so when we got to the hotel and then got home he ate and ate and ate. Now we travel almost 3 hours every weekend because we are close to home with Kane. I use formula so feeding is easy and I don't try to burp him until we stop halfway or when we get to mom's house or back to our house as far as changing goes because it is winter and he gets sweaty in the car seat I just change him in the car and only take him out of the car when we get to our destination. If you are using cloth diapers make sure you put an extra doubler more towards the back than you normally would because instead of being wet up front when traveling it is usually more to the back and don't forget that wet diapers left in a freezing cold car will infact freeze! Good luck and I hope you have a more patient dh than I do!

morning everybody -

heve -the list looks great. are you going to be that organized with the little one as well? i keep wondering how my house got to be such a shambles (i used to have my clothes hung by color in my closet) and then i watch ds (2 yo) run around the house for 2 minutes and i remember....and now with mia, i am just too tired to care that there are towels and toys and baby wipes (not used) dropped all over the floor all around the house.

yay amber on the blood pressure!

three4me and shannon - did they go to sleep? mia often sleeps in the evening and then wakes up at 11 for the party. ugh!

woolfairy - stupid hmo. yuck yuck yuck. anyway, though, at least you have your little one to look forward to!

congrats to scott, monica!

here, mia seems to be finally starting to get better - i only had to suction her nose twice last night (versus six times or so the night before ). james and i are less congested too.

freecycle is so great! i have been cleaning out our garage and meeting some really cool folks.

have a good day all!

terenia

Well, she sortof slept, she layed in bed with me making all sorts of funny noises that had Steve and I laughing then she drifted off, unfortunately shortly after that happened my heartburn hit full force and Steve was already asleep and she was sleeping on my arm so I couldn't bring myself to move her and get some rolaids, finally Steve woke up and I sent him, I think I feel asleep around 2 am and she woke up at 3:30, after that she was fussy and cranky until, well....now!! It ticks me off, I woke Steve at 8:00 and sent him out to the living room with her, I never heard her cry the whole time, he brought her back to me at 9:30 (yep, just as I was drifting off to sleep) and she continued on with fuss fest, so now I'm up and here with a baby bouncing off my collar bone in anger!!
How did everyone else sleep??
Terenia, I'm so glad to hear Mia seems to be on the road to recovery from her RSV.

Well she slept pretty good until 3am and then woke up with the nastiest nasal congestion so I spent the next 3 hours sucking out her nose and keeping her elevated and nursing her and playing with her because she would NOT go back to sleep. My husband got up at 7am to go back to work for the first time since the birth He left me a lovely pile of dishes in the sink (after I made him dinner last night!!!) and he left without getting our 18 month old up so I had to do everything this morning on very little sleep. Oh and he actually thought I was going to take our 11 yr old to school at 8am this morning too. :LOL Ummmm no...don't think so!

Sorry...wanna join my pity party again today? I knew that his going back to work would be the end of our happy blissful week together. *sigh*

Hey Ya'll...
i'm not dead
I'm getting over my bronchitis.
Dominic is back up to his birthweight - LOVES being in a sling in the snuggle position - thanks so much Lesley for telling me about it. (right now we're using the KKAFP because its chilly and the sling is warm...). His cord hasn't fallen off yet, midwife strongly sugested going back to sposies for a few days and no onsies, just tshirts to get LOTS of air on it so it comes off sooner. so we have makes me sad. i adore my cd's. and sposies are just ickier.

I stll haven't gotten my first disability check - they're saying maybe as long as another 3 weeks. HOLY cow. So i did my taxes, and we're getting a refund, which could be here in as soon as 10 days - which would be good because it would pay the march bills. *sigh*. this sucks.

big hugs to everyone....
Heve - would you go into labor already -

eta - new ADORABLE pic of Rod and Dominic is on the webpage below

Joy, have you been putting anything on the cord stump? We didn't put anything on it the first 4 days and then started to swab it with alcohol because of the rotting meat smell. It fell off 2 days later.

Scott let me get some sleep last night. It's funny...people keep saying he looks like me, but I didn't reakky see it. Last night I was drying off after bathing (and shaving...woot!!) and I happened to glance at myself in the mirror and I saw the same expression Scott gets on his face wjen he's content and full of milk. I guess he does look like me...it's neat to see it for myself.

I'm trying to battle a cold. It's mostly a deep chest cough and sone sniffles. I made a big pot of chicken soup last night and I'm taking echinacea to boost my immune. I'm hoping it goes quickly.

Welll enough updating...I can't believe I typed this all one-handed. I will say one thing really quickly, I'm feeling a little resentful towards DH. He gets to sleep all night on the couch and while he's been helpful, he's also been a PITA. I'm kind of looking forward to him going back to work on Monday.

So - no word from Amber - hope you're having an empowering, joyful birth!!

Thanks for the check-ins, new mamas! I love hearing about this special time, getting to know your babies!

I saw my mw today. Feeling very emotional and teary today. I'm trying to maintain perspective. I am irked that despite being just 41 weeks, 1 day today, I am having to look ahead at a post-term situation. OB this, u/s that, induction this...it's ruining what could have been a peaceful last week with my dh, patiently awaiting our little one! : So here's the deal...on Thursday, I go for the bpp and NST, then Thursday evening, dh, mw and I discuss the situation with the on-call OB. If all checks out ok, and I have good info on the kick count, I hope to negotiate no transfer to an OB/hospital until Monday or Tuesday. Until then, I do what I can...sex, EPO, walks, bouncing on ball, acupuncture, homeopathics. My LMP puts my edd at Feb 25, although my ovulation date was June 1, which puts it at Feb. 21. BUT, I didn't have consistant 28-day cycles, so I will bring my charts to the table, too, which may buy me a few days. I can agree to check in for monitoring every other day, to make sure it can still be safe to birth at home. Sorry to ...getting quite sick of it, myself...

hevea - so sorry that your last week is turning into medical monitoring mania. those constant appointments and discussions of if, what, and how do sound like a drag. i'm hoping that your natural starters will start him/her up!! good luck!

Hey mams, how are you all doing?

Christine, the list looks fabulous. Thanks so much!
I sincerely hope that everything works out for you, and that you have the birth that you want. That sounds like a great idea to hopefully buy you a couple of extra days.

To all those with sick babies, hope they get better soon. Ella has a wicked cough which is really scary , especially when she coughs in Lilah's face. Yuck!! I am so paranoid about germs it's not funny, especially with a 10 day old in the house too.

Ok, can't remember any of the other posts at all. Where did my brain go? Take care xxxJasmine

Monica...
yeah... the hospital did alchohol on dominic's stump and the midwife said the best course of action was to continue in one fashion (the mw's use goldenseal)... BUT she also said that not having lots of air on it (ie, my cds and covers that covered it could've been keeping it moist, ditto on the onsies) probably was what was keeping it on. SO... i'm hoping it falls off soon. like in a few days. i really want to give dominic his first bath here soon. very soon. Am thinking we'll make it a family affair in the bathtub.

Christine - i hope everyone goes for the plan to give you a few more days....

Morning all. Sending good labor vibes out to all that haven't got to meet their little ones yet! My little on isn't so little anymore, he is over 10 lbs! DS1 wasn't 10 lbs until he was almost 3 1/2 months old, so I don't know what to make of this! I would be happier if I was making him grow like that, he only grew to 7 lbs in me and my milk didn't work so the formula is agreeing with him I guess I can be happy with that!

Everybody have a good day!

oh my goodness, Lesley! How scrumptious she is in that soaker! My voice went up an octave, cooing over those photos! I think she looks a lot like Mel.

um, nope, didn't go into labour last night... Today Shannon is coming over, and we're going out for lunch. Haven't heard of any labour-inducing meals around here, but it will be a nice outing - for both of us, I hope! Then this afternoon, I see my acupuncturist. Hope her treatment is potent enough to send me into labour...!! Dh and I had a long chat with my mw yesterday, on speakerphone...we're on the same page, going into our OB consult tomorrow, and she found out for us that the OB on call tomorrow is the one that I've heard great things about. A very reasonable, flexible guy. He even teaches FAM, so I'll be sure to bring in my charts, in case that gives us any wiggle room of a few days. I'd like to at least hold off on scheduling a hospital induction until Monday or Tuesday.

Thanks again for the labour and peace vibes - it means a lot!

Thinking of Amber today...hope the silence means you're busy... !! Peaceful, empowering, joyous labour and birth vibes to you~~~!!!

Hello everyone! thought i'd check in even though ihaven't posted in forever. not sure if anyone remembers me LOL!!!

i ended up perpetually sick from thanksgiving until i gave birth and ended up cracking a rib or something a week before i gave birth. those last few weesk were truly a nightmare.

that said, i was induced at 35 weeks due to rapidly rising bp and low amniotic fluid. i also had undetected gd. i was really falling apart. i was very sad and angry to not have a drug free childbirth but i just couldn't handle the pit contractions.

mia paige was born on 1/13 at 11:31 a.m. weighing 7 pounds 3 ounces. she got jaundice and i got spinal headaches and pulled muscles in my back and neck so i spent 2 weeks flat on my back after she was born. but we're both quite healthy and mia had no problems with her lungs or other functions other than the jaundice that was treated with bili lights. i can't believe she's 7 weeks tomorrow!

shannon, i've read bits here and there when i could keep up and my thoughts are with you. you've been through SO much, it's time for a break so you can just enjoy that little bundle.

to everyone still wiating -- : i hope your bundles come soon and you have the birth of your dreams!!!

hope to see everyone on the other boards. even though i didn't post i did try to read and keep up with all the feb. moms. i'm still amazed mia arrived in january!

hugs to everyone!
