I also feel sad that I didn't get my homebirths or my waterbirths as I'd planned. A dear friend of mine said to me after my first son, why didn't recreate a sort of water birth and have a lovely bath with my baby and reconnect with him and try and feel some healing. It sounds corny but I did and it did help.

I am curious! It must be good to get that closure too.

When I was pregnant with Seth (I got pg 1 month after she died, so it was still pretty raw and new), the ladies on the dd forum here asked me not to write about her. They said it was too hard for them to read it. So, I didn't write to them about it at all. i just bottled it up. I've learned since then that I can't bottle it, but I won't write about it unless I know it's ok. :
You all are the best, you know that?
Wow, that is absolutely beyond my understanding. Of COURSE you can and should talk about Emma here, just like you would your other kiddos

Jeez that was a lot of hugs!

So I'm in need of a hug myself actually. We did our WBV today wth the new ped. Rachel fell from 85th% to 50th% in weight. When I took her home I noticed how her chub has sorta disappeared All this refusing to eat at daycare is really catching up to her it seems. The ped was great - very reassuring. He said she's growing beautifully. And she is, I know that. She's 95th for height and 90th for head circ. I know that's great. And I know that DD1 followed a similar pattern of being tall and skinny. And I know that she's rolling and starting to sit on her own, and that DD1 wasn't even doing that much at this age. I just can't help worrying that all this hunger striking at daycare is bad for her : I was hoping my little chubber would continue being chubby and she's just not anymore.

Anyhoo. Nuff complaining - she is healthy and happy and that's what matters...

hugs to you Miss Juice
I've had a shi**y day here
got food poisoning (unusual for vegan food but there you go) and spent the day with diarrhoea, nausea and feeling revolting

I was out with 2 kids and dog (other kid was at school) and my tummy got crampy, mad dash to car, stuffed kids/dog in car, panicked look around but no loo insight and decided to make crazy drive back home................ I'll spare you the details but needless to say if I didn't have the kids with me and the dog, I'm sure I could have made to a toilet in time:

I never want to eat food from a takeaway shop again blurgh....

to top it off Laura has to work late tonight and I have to get all 3 kids fed (well the baby is easy) and into bed all by myself which I REALLY HATE doing....
ah well tomorrow has to be better right?:

Witt, I can sooo commiserate what it must be like to get 3 kids to bed. I cannot imagine and soiling your knickers, egads! I had that happen twice last year and it was truly awful.

Quag I am sorry to hear about Rachel's %ile plunge. I know how worrisome that can be, and on top of even having to deal with babe in daycare, you deserve some mega hugs. I think you are right though--she is healthy, happy and fully okay.

I can't even remember the context but some thread on mdc about breasts and their real purpose... oh, I think a mama was asking whether she should nurse in front of her older sons, and I said I thought it was not only fine, but important for them to see what breasts really are: kitchens.

Speaking of biting....count me in on the big group hug we all need today....remember my "burn" that i asked about? Well, today my leg started to hurt a lot and it started getting red, so I went to the walk in clinic and the doctor said it looked more like a hobo spider bite than a burn to her!!! :
She said it is abscessing and infected!!!
So now I have to take cefadroxil for 10 days, but go back in if it still hurts in 3 days. I HATE ABX. AAAARGH!!!! But a quick google search of the hobo spider has made me afraid to not take the ABX. Last thing I need I surgery from a spider bite.
I guess I am most afraid of it getting worse and a doc telling me I need to stop nursing. I don't have insurance so the appt. cost $90 and the the prescription was $60
So sad and scared and uncomfortable.
What's with today?

It is hard when we feel that something is wrong. Doesn't matter if there is something wrong or not, when you feel that way there is nothing that can be done. Big fat

When one of my MWs (4 kids, youngest in her teens) came for DS' one week appt, he started rooting around on her, and she jokingly told him, "Sorry, sweetie, that kitchen is closed."

If they do, nod and come straight back here and have me look up the drug for you. Most likely it's safe, and if they're alternatives than Dr. Hale's book will list them. You can always call back and say that you changed your mind about weaning, even temporarily so will you please prescribe X instead?

I've been getting worse with this cold all day and needed some of that myself. I called dh and stressed the importance of not working late today. The baby was NOT napping all day. He was home just a little early. He cooked, he played with the older dc. I finally got the baby to sleep. I fell asleep putting dd1 to bed and woke up 30 minutes ago. My baby slept the entire time I crashed with dd1. I got a huge glass of water, came here and am going back to bed. You know what else he did for me? He filled up the cool mist humidifier in my room and had it running. I my dh. He really came through this time. I just felt the need to share that so that you don't think he's awful when next week I post that I dh

One more thing before I pass out. All this coughing and sneezing has made me wish there was a kegel thread to bump.

Hi, all. Mattie has Roseola. I babysit for my friend's baby on Tuesdays and of course she has no spots till we get home. So I had to call her and tell her. I don't think she's contagious anymore since the fever broke over 24 hours ago.
We have no news on the bank situation. Dh doesn't want me to make calls from home. He's afraid they will track us. So I have to wait till I can get to my mom's. He also doesn't think it's a great idea for me to go into the bank because he thinks they'll call the cops. I don't wanna take chances so I'm gonna go to my mom's and call, hopefully tomorrow. Can you tell my dh has had a few bad experiences with cops? He's so paranoid. But I have to be with him on this and err on the side of caution.

Kim-I love when you share about Emma. When you just talk about how she didn't have teeth or when she did what. I think it's good for you and all of us. Someone told me recently that without sorrow in our lives, we don't know real joy. I hate that phrase. Because of losing my brother recently. I'm pretty sure I knew joy when he was here. But I guess if you really think about it, there may be some truth to it. Or maybe it's just something people say when you hurt so much you can't see straight and they wanna help. I don't know why I shared all that, except that I want you to not feel like you have to hold back with us. I'm sorry your other online "friends" were so selfish.

I was thinking about what someone said about people who schedule elective c-section. I don't remember the comment. I was just thinking about how we all think bad things, but sometimes it's not a bad thing. My sister scheduled her 2nd c-section. I didn't know as much then as I do now about birth to help her through her first birth. I'm pretty sure she was emotionally traumatized by her c-section and thought she shouldn't be. She never talked to anyone or dealt with the emotions. I think when it came time for her 2nd baby, she couldn't even think of going through labor and then ending up with a section anyway. It makes me sad for her. Her doctor asked her and was very encouraging about having a VBAC, but she just said she wanted the extra time off work or something shallow like that. But I know she just really had a hard time with everything the first time. Anyway, just wanted to add my 2 cents. I'm exhausted so I'll have to come back and answer questions later.
I gotta go get my spotted baby in her too-small bed.

Jessica, mama to Emma, 7, Mattie, 5.5 and Lilly, 3 and someone new this Halloween-ish.

I wanted to give a caterpillar(my dd's way of saying big, fat) thank you to Cori/soapdiva for the great thing she has done for my family. She has given us a great holiday gift. And the letter you wrote and put in with it just melted my heart. Thank you for helping my family and remembering my brother. It's a hard time without him. I think now we might be able to get Emma her Diego Rescue Center she wants so bad. She sees the commercial and says I want that. I ask her at other commericals and random times, do you want the DOra magic castle, she says, no I don't to. I ask do you want the Dora talking House, she says No I don't want to. I just want Diego rescue center. I ask do you want anything else. She says no I want diego rescue center. Although yesterday at Walmart she saw Dora knows your name doll and said I like that, I want to take it home. We just tell her they live at the store. Then she went back to the diego rescue center. My niece is 4 and wants every toy she sees. I'm so glad that my dd doesn't do that. And that I really know what she will like. And nonw I maybe can actually get it. And my dh is stressing so much less. You are awesome.

And I also wanted to thank Pav for the great diapers I received. I have an e-mail for you. I can't send it tonight. I am trying to find a MIN home for a few GUI I have. Oh, I hope I can swing the shipping. I love you guys. I feel so close to all these women I don't really know. It's so great to have such awesome friends. Let's all move somewhere and live in a community together and be the village it takes to raise our children. Anybody? s

I feel so crappy and freaked out that I can't sleep.

If anyone wants to see my bite there is a picture here...

oh kimya, that looks painful. I hope the meds work quickly.

So, today I'm stewing over last night's episode of Boston Legal, which featured a homeschooling family as white supremacist bigots. A few episodes, they had hsers who were incestuous murderers! It's getting old. I posted on their boards, if you wanna go agree with me.

OMG that looks ugly!! Kimya ~ please GO RIGHT now and buy homeopathic remedy called Ledum 30C and take it every half-hour (5 pellets under your tongue) up to six times. It will antidote the spider poison (if it is a spider bite) unless it was Brown Recluse Spider or Black Widow.
Antibiotics will help with the infection but will NOT intidote the posion which can cause you problems for a VERY long time.
It only costs about $8.

There is nothing open in Olympia yet. I will go to the co-op as soon as they open and get some. Thanks for the advice. I hope they have it.

OK ~ here is more remedies for bites and stings that you add to the Ledum 30C:
If there is bruising, swelling or pain around the bite take APIS 30C
Rapid swelling with bleeding beneath the skin, discolored, possibly purplish red sin color: LAchesis 6C
Anaphylactic shocks from bite or stings: Apis 30C or higest potency available (obviously this is not your case but I thought this is good remedy to have at home in case your DC develops something like that after being bitten) If you are allergic to any kind of stings, you should always carry the hightest potency possible such as Apis 1M or 10M. This WILL save a life no matter what the reason for the allergy reaction, it does not have to be from a bee sting. It can be fromm food or drugs, too.
