hattoo- it sounds like you are feeling better today, i sure hope so. hormones are so frustrating b/c the reality or acknowledgement of them doesn't help one bit. so sweet that sage understood.

i have finnally started my period after what seems like many weeks of a similar hormonal rollercoaster. i just feel like being mean to people (mainly hilger) and to myself. i am so happy that i finnally started though, b/c i was begining to think that it was just a new ugly me.

bama- that sounds crazy! i mean, they must have a standard procedure- i wonder why they can't get it together?

melissa- i am pretty sure that we are going to be coming through on the monday before thanksgiving- leaving sometime tuesday i guess. i'll let you know for sure.

anne- hope you are feeling better today. you must be totally worn out.

sharron anne- so, we are having our house warming this sunday starting at 4. i'll pm you too. i hope you can come- we should have quite a few kids and i am looking forward to that.

this was the highlight of my night! thank you michelle!

i waited and HOUR AND A HALF at the fricken mw office tonight...then had to drive an hour home. atleast i got my stats homework done though. even done correctly at that (dh had to "check" it for me when i got home ) baby is fine. the stupid hospital/OB STILL hasnt' sent my labs that they drew at the begining of this pg so i have to have them all redone in 2 weeks so that i can get my rhogam on time: makes me wonder what happened to all that blood they drew. all in all though, aside from still being "underweight" i'm ok. baby sounds fine and looked fine on the 22wk u/s that they did last month. she wants to schedule another one at 35weeks to make sure the little guy is head down. my only concern is that ds didn't go head down til 38 weeks so why bother doing one at 35? anyone here need one done that late in the game, so to speak?

Yeah, 35 weeks is really early. Especially with a not first baby (its early lol.) I would refuse to go that early. Gwen was still moving around less than a week before she was born, she was at least transverse, if not breech. After baby #1, they very rarely get all the way into position (drop) before birth, which leaves more room for them to turn if they feel like it.

35 weeks sounds early to me, too. Sounds like an unnecessary ultrasound to me. I got a u/s at 39 weeks to make sure Danny was head down. I think he was still breech at 35 weeks.

I'd hold off if I were you. If baby #2 is not head-down at 39 weeks, you can decide what you're going to do about it then.

Annabelle,
Is there a reason why your mw office can't call the lab/hospital and have them fax over the results?
I used to work in a doctor's office and we'd do this ALL the time for new patients who forgot to bring copies of their labs (we were a specialist). I'm not sure how things have changed since I was there, but all you should have to do is sign a release and it shouldn't take more than a few clicks of a mouse. That's absolutely ridiculous!

Anyhow, I'm lurking and saying hello as well I may update if I get the chance!
Take care all,
Karen

IMO, a skilled midwife can use her hands and figure out a head down baby. At least a good one...

I wouldnt do an US just for the head position. Just not necessary.

karen-my mw did request the labs. the ob just won't/didn't send them. they sent everything from my 1st pregnancy but it appears that they "lost" all the blood they drew for labs this time around. all the more reason we're not using them for care providers anymore.

not too much to report here, just trying to keep our poor little thread a alive.
did i tell you all that eisa told her first joke the other day?
well, i won't tell you the punchline b/c i don't want to bore you with the same story and b/c maybe someone will write to say "no, you didn't tell us to begin with"

in other news, i am getting soo tired of people calling eisa a boy- i mean, i know that it doesn't matter, but today she was wearing a pink dress with a pink shirt and pink jacket, buttt little hiking boots and though her hat has some pink, it is mostly green and white. and- they all call her a boy. it seems like i woud kind-a like that attitude- not saying "why is your boy all in pink?" but it is just driving me crazy. when i dressed her this morining, i thought "well, nobody will call her a boy today!" no luck.
enough of that. just trying to stir something up.

goodnight.

Welllllllll...........

We got the results from Early Intervention today...

Physical development: Normal

Communication : 25% delay

Self help skills: 69% delay

Social/emotional skills: 69% delay

cognitive skills : 44% delay

I am okay with it..last week was the "bad" week. the week where I just freaked out and got it over with.

I just wish someone had listened to me when he was tiny. Delays like this dont happen overnight!

*hugs* Bama. I'm sorry it took so long for you to be taken seriously... and I hope you have all the information and help you need now to get your beautiful Schuy back on track! He has a wonderful mama.

We just got back from the Dr. ourselves. Elaina has her third cold in four weeks... and was tugging on her ear and had sour breath, so I thought she might have an ear infection, or sinus infection... but she just has caught another bug, it looks like So I'm looking for suggestions to boost her immune system and keep her in top shape, cause she seems to need it I'm about to post in the health and healing forum but could use any suggestions you mamas have as well. Right now the only supplement I give her is flax seed oil, and when she has a cold, hyland's c+ cold tabs... and their teething tabs as well, as needed...

MCS - you guys were such pretty little witches :

I'm so excited about the way elections turned out!! Thrilled to have a Dem Governor in the state... in fact I think all the major offices in our state were filled by Dems, and we're a red state!! Awesome.

Ok, I'm off to Health and Healing... hope everyone is doing well and having fun

Annabelle.. I concur that seems like an unneccary u/s. But I love u/s and would take any that came my way . But I guess it wouldn't be good to have that one and miss out on a later one that would actually be useful. Don't mind me, I'm just babbling basically

glad you're getting some answers bama!

fey-try herbs for kids echinacia. they have a few different varieties, i like the one for added immunity during cold, flu, and allergy season. we also use the chamomile calm on nights where he's really wound up or fussy over teeth. it helps him mellow out enough to fall asleep.

bama, so glad the tube thing is moving forward. I'm sorry to hear about the delays, but I'm glad they are finally caught and you are being listened to, and can do something about it now! Keep us posted. What's the next step for those things? Therapy of some sort?

Fey - what about garlic? Can you get some garlic into her somehow? Cully LOVES garlic (I had to stop him from eating a clove last night, he was chewing on it and I got grossed out. ). Maybe some garlic bread or something?

emmy- one of eisa's "jobs" while i cook dinner is to peel the garlic. we have enough peeled for the next week or so! she is so funny peel a little and then bite with a suprised look everytime- but she keeps biting.
i was known to eat raw onions as a kid so i am not suprised.

bama- glad that things are getting resolved. good job!

fey- not sure what to add to that list. hilgers sister brought us this stuff called gris- it is fortifed with probiotics. eisa had some today and loved it- i am going to pump that into her this winter. it is kinda like grits only yummier.

Way to go Bama!!

I had drinks with a friend at Don Pablos last night and we had super-crappy service. We emailed the corporate office today and both got phone calls within an hour or two from the Director of Operations! And we're getting dinner certificates for our pains. Nice!

Go, squeaky wheels

Danny is once again taking a long, kind of late, afternoon nap. Last night he stayed up, pretty happily, until 10:15 (usually in bed asleep by 7:30). It sucked for us, but he's been in a great mood all day. Now it's 4:15 and I wonder, should I wake him up? Has the damage already been done? Is this his new schedule and, if it is, how can I make it work for me?

Try Herbs for Kids Echinacea GoldenRoot...

Its a combination of great immune boosting herbs, its cheap, and its specially for kids. No worries about it being too strong!

use it intensely for a few days to get her over the hump, then use it preventatively for the rest of the winter..youcan switch formulations..so you dont gain some sort of immunity to the herbs(happens mostly to echinacea..it'll lose its effectiveness if you take it all the time without a break).

Give her that blend, let her chew garlic, and if she's not sensitive to it, let her have some really diluted fresh oj.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

AND...

the news we've all been waiting for........

The nurse is on her way to start the feeding tube!! Woohoo!!!:

I totally agree. They should be able to tell and then if there is a question you chould order an u/s at a later date. Ellysia was breech at 35 weeks and my doc picked it up by palpating. She did an u/s to confirm, but by the next week she had flipped.

Fey: I would try the probiotic route. Daily while she has a cold, otherwise weekly. I picked up Claire's powder form at the health food store.

It was so nice out yesterday afternoon. In the 70's. I took Claire and Ellysia out in the backyard. We had a great time playing on the swing set until Ellysia climbed up to the top and was going down the slide. Claire climbed up too, but couldn't muster the courage to go down. So I climbed up too and we went down together. Then I took them for a stroller ride. We were out for 45 mintues and were ready to go in. DH had left to vote and had closed the garage door so we were locked out until he came home 15 minutes later.

I have my u/s on Friday! Not going to find out if it is a girl or boy. I had a full placenta previa at my 10 week u/s so I'm hoping it migrated up. I do not want a c/s for #4. That would be cruel!

That's so great, Bama! It looks like it doesn't even bother him

Mclisa, you have all my admiration for going for the "surprise" the fourth time around! I don't know if I'd have it in me. With #2 I briefly considered finding out, but I do like the exercise of picking out two names plus all the fun of "It's a boy!" (for me, anyway).

Mcs, I can't believe Eisa can peel garlic!

I'm in a happy, happy mood re: the elections. Also, an amendment to approve gambling did not pass in Ohio, which makes me happy, and another amendment to raise the minimum wage did.

Schuy looks just great! I guess I'm pretty ignorant because I thought it would be a lot less mobile than that. Good to see things are getting done for you guys!

Fey - I agree with all the Echinacea recommendations. I usually give it to Sage when other kids obviously have a cold. I take it myself if she's got one and I haven't had a cold since she was born. Unfortunately, I can't say the same for Sage!! She's just getting over one right now. As for garlic, I boil cloves in homemade chicken broth and put it in her sippy cup. She really seems to like that.

his face looks grubby, but only b/c the lighting was bad, and the graham cracker I had just given him was still smeared around..................

but it worked!

and what you're looking at is just the tubing..

we hook that little pink thing dangling near his butt to a feeding pump.

It worked like a charm!

WOOHOO for grubby graham cracker face!!!

Bama, I can't imagine how hard this whole thing is. You are an amazing woman. I'm so glad that things are starting to happen, now.

Hey, anyone else's kid still crawling? : Joey has started crawling again. I think I may have said something to her about crawling being how "babies get around". She wants to do everything her "baby" (Dh's old cabbage patch doll) does. She's still walking (running, etc ) but it's so funny to see her scooting across the floor on her hands and knees again. :

Hey mcs, did you get my pm about your housewarming? In case you didn't I said that we'd love to go and it will actually work out perfectly, because we'll be driving through SI to go to my nephew's birthday party in Bayonne. So, we can stop by on our way home. Send me your address when you've got a chance.

Do I ever feel like a moron! Of course it wouldn't be mobile when he's eating, chalk it up to pg brain.

SA - Sage still crawls quite a bit but I think it's when she's tired. If she's on the floor and needs to get something from across the room, she'll just crawl over instead of going to the huge effort of getting up and walking. (I think she inherited this trait from me!)

yeah, he's doing great.

the pump worked great, only one alarm, and it was before i went to bed. He had rolled in the cord...

I slept in his floor just to catch anything that happened, but that thing is amazing.

I'm really proud of him....he's totally ignoring the tube, and playing and swiping food from his sister.

It felt really good to sit here last night knowing he was being fed ....
