hi mamas... i'm staying at my aunt's for a couple days. dh has a big conference that he is working (as the tech guy) and won't be around much for the remainder of the week so I thought it would be a good time for Istra and I to go visit family that we hardly get a chance to see. So here we are. I've been doing my Hypnobabies and turning out amber necklaces during naptime.

Some of my relatives haven't seen me for a while and were apparently shocked at how big I am... one said, "Well, your belly isn't too big, but you're really wide. Aren't you exercising?!" I said, rather snippily, "I exercise every freaking day." When my grandmother saw me she said, "You look very.... pregnant." It didn't sound like a compliment. As if I don't feel bad enough being humungous.

I seem to have some kind of sinus thing going on... the right side of my throat hurts, my right nostril is plugged and the right side of my jaw hurts... oh, and my right ear. Is there anything I can do? I thought about dropping some dissolved acidophilus in my ear or something...

Oh, Istra awakes.

no acidophilus in ears selena

Do Garlic oil in ears, take garlic by mouth, and some straight echinacea(no goldenseal) and it should knock it out. No dairy, it plugs up your head if you have something coming on and causes congestion.

Bonnie: you can't take the bulbs out of your truck because they are on all of the time! They can't expect that to be a proper solution!

mcs: I had my teeth cleaned in February by my regular dentist. In fact, they cleaned my teeth last August the day I found out I was pg. They didn't do x-rays either visit, but still could do a very thorough cleaning. My secretary had a filling fall out a couple of weeks before she delivered. Her dentist was a bit nervous and wouldn't use novacaine (ouch!) and would only give her a temporary filling. He said he wanted to wait until she wasn't pg so he could use the pain meds and fill it properly.

Pyper - not sure what the meaning is. She saw it in a baby book and just knew that it fit.

I love the Japanese name! Oh how fitting with being born on the first day of spring! That is just so special!

bama: can't wait to here how he's grown out of the new carseat!

I'm 38 weeks. I figure I have about 3 weeks left.

I was reading elsewhere about how dangerous it is to have your teeth cleaned while you're pregnant if you have those metal fillings, something about tiny bits of the metal getting scraped off and affecting the baby.

So, I was feeling kind of paranoid about going to the dentist (it doesn't take much for me ) but do you guys think it's safe?

I don't know if I've ever told you guys this, but I have an older sister who was severely mentally ill for years, I mean really, really bad. She ended up discovering that she had mercury poisoning from her fillings which was pushed over the edge by her getting all her vaccines as an adult. (We weren't vaxed) She got them removed, detoxed, and is now totally healthy and normal. I'm paranoid about mercury!

And my teeth are really dirty

Not much action! this is easy to keep up with!

Grace, I went when I was pregnant with Nolan twice as it worked out. I had no work done just the cleaning but I think hes fine! Of course its up to you. If it makes you nervous I wouldn't go.

Mclisa, Pyper was the name of one of the characters on charmed! I loved that show! I love that name I don't think I would have thought of it though.

Selena, Oh you poor thing! People can be so cruel!

OMGoodness So the truck! They had until today to finish it. The lights are fixed! Woooo WHOOOO! Now hold onto your hats the reason it took 17 days is........It was a fuse put in backwards! However they sent it to three dealerships to find this out! the guy is filling it with gas for us and is going to give it a bath and vac it out. I guess that is for our inconvience and all the gas to fix it! So its back! I am so happy we don't have to get ugly and mean.

Well Noley's butt is much much better but is still sore enough that he whines when you change him. Its not healing properly IMO what do you use on sore buns?

yikes! on all accounts, grace! well, luckily those that they found are my first cavities ever so i am not worried about old fillings. i have never heard of that risk- maybe you could post it here or google it?

selena- i remember that my sister was huge with her second dd and she was soooo tired of the comments. i didn't really understand at the time (i was like, "well, you are huge. i mean, your pregnant") but now i can see the annoyance.

bonnie- that just plain sucks! how is nonny today?

I actually read it here, over in my August DDC. I haven't really been having time to hang out there, but there were a few moms there who seemed like they really knew what they were talking about.

I know that's not always a sign that they DO know what they are talking about

Grace: no help on the filling front. I've never had a cavity. My sisters made up for me, though. I think the dentist had a boat there for awhile with their names on it.

Bonnie: Ilex for the bottom. That's what I've heard. Not sure if it is a prescription.

Bonnie: no action on the board. No action for contractions here!

I'm waiting for April: diamond birthstone

Oh, now I know why I'm hoping for a 10-day early baby again.. April 28th!

And BAma, thank you for convincing me not to put acidophilus in my ears. I got the garlic oil and my ear seems to be improving, along with my teeth, throat and sinus headache. Stuff stinks though. Ick.

Must go do some exercises before bed, just so I can snap at people who ask me if my a*s is so big because I'm sitting around eating twinkies all day.

Detox is bad stuff with mercury. I wouldnt worry about a cleaning Grace, but dont dare have those mercury fillings removed til you're done nursing this one. Then do homeopathic detox.

Selena, yay for garlic. It works. stinky tho

Sounds like a deal Selena: let's each have an April baby!

Anne: thanks for the pic! I sure appreciate the pampers points.

DH and I are going to a musical tonight about 45 minutes away. It should be fun to get a way.

M and E begged me to let them outside so I did. They are soaked because it is raining out and they wanted to jump in the puddles, but they had a great time.

mcs: are you going to Prairie Home Companion the movie? I haven't seen that yet, but I've seen Garrison Keillor do his live show twice when he's been in SD. Jeff and I have the movie on our list we need to see. Maybe when I'm home on maternity leave. Lots of extra time there, right?

I have really good pregnancies and generally breeze right though them. My doctor laughs that I'm just made to be pg (especially since I always go over and I've never had spontaneous labor yet.) I love being pg. This time I've had some ligament issues with my right hip and I saw a PT on Friday. It's already feeling better today so I'm thinking the stretches she gave me put me on the right track. And she made me think about my posture more so I'm making a better effort at that too. What throws it off is carrying Claire because I always carry her on my left hip so I have my right hand free.

Jeff and I went to a local musical last night. This baby loved it just like when I saw the shows on Broadway. Moving and Grooving during the entire show.

Anne: there was a thread about a toddler who wasn't gaining weight and they might end up getting a feeding tube. I did mention that your son has one. I thought you could at least give an idea of how it works.


Actually, that should read bama:

Grace, depends on how busy Em is. She's been getting folks in as she logs in and checks. The MDC June 05 mama forum is all the way at the bottom .

grace- i just heard a report on the gary knoll show about mercury fillings. i don't know if you know of him- i am still undecided about whether i think he is a quack or for real. maybe a little of both. anyway.... he is starting a law suit today about mercury fillings not being safe. he quoted several research papers saying that it does leach into your bloodstream and feces and that getting a cleaning raises the levels.
what struck me most was that he said that the mercury is considered, and must be handled as, toxic waste both before and after it is in your mouth, but is considered safe while in your mouth. hmm?

i'll bet that you can listen to the show online if your interested.
