Dancingmama, it snowed here in Ohio this weekend too. DH and I were singing Christmas carols as we made breakfast. :LOL I sent our family pictures of my tulips, filled with snow. Very freaky.
I'm having sleep issues too, with the tossing and turning all night and the bizarro dreams. I did dream the other night that I had an amnio or some other genetic screening, so we got to find out what sex the baby is, but of course I couldn't remember what it was when I woke up!
I am 10W4D today, and I have my second midwife appointment Wednesday. I'm not sure if she will ask if I want to do the doppler, maybe it's too early? I had an early ultrasound about 2 weeks ago and all looked fabulous, so I may not bother with doppler this week. Like y'all said, it was good for me to have the reassurance of the ultrasound. I had a blighted ovum last year, and didn't find out til 12 weeks, so it was pretty devastating. DH and I have been talking about whether to do the nuchal translucency scan in the next couple of weeks (our clinic offers it as a routine diagnostic) but I think we're going to skip it.
Fern, I admire your attitude about babies with special needs. I'm kind of embarrassed to admit this, but the idea of having a baby with special needs is really scary to me. Sometimes I'm not sure if I would be strong enough or brave enough to handle it. I guess we can handle what we're given, but it's just *so* foreign to me in every way. I hope y'all don't beat me up for saying that.
Well I don't know if y'all remember me saying this a while back, but we finally found a house in our dream town, Yellow Springs! We're going to be moving in 3 weeks and I can't wait! The only negative in the whole scenario is that DH is out of town until the day before we move, so I will be doing the rest of hte packing myself. Yikes! I am starting to have the occasional good day now, so I have been able to get some work done but I still tire out so easily! I'm hoping that I will really start to feel better before we move....
Oh, and this is toooootally off the subject, but I was just curious (for those of you with babes), how many times do you usually change a newborn during the average night? And when you co-sleep, do you lay the baby on a towel or something like that to prevent leakage all the way through to the mattress?
