Hey everyone. I've decided it's time for my almost 3yo ds to get chickepox. I'm very early pg now, due in early June, so I would like him to get it now before the new baby is born and I have to wait another 2 years (unless anyone knows why I shouldn't be exposed to it while pg). Does anyone around here ever have chickenpox parties or know someone with chickenpox who wouldn't mind meeting my ds? If not now, please remember me if you hear of any upcoming events.

Oh really? I asked my FP and he said it wouldn't be a problem since I've had chickenpox but you're the 2nd person who's said it may not be a good idea for ds to get it while i'm pg. Guess I better check some more. Or did you just mean it's not good for me to get while pg?

i'm not sure. it might just be if you haven't had it, but i'm not sure i'd take the chance of intentional exposure while pg. i've heard about folks catching it twice. it is around now so you might be able to get it in your neck of the woods if you really want to try. my kids in chapel hill are just getting over it.

I've been exposed to it since I've had it when my older son got it so I think it's not very likely at all that I would get it again. I will definitely look into it more. How do you find out who has it so you can be around it? We just moved here so I don't know many people. My little one does not go to any type of preschool or babysitter or playgroup.

Thanks beanma. I think Chapel Hill is too far to drive just for that. But, my sister lives in Raleigh so I may get in touch with you the next time we go up that way.

Checking in here. I'm near Wilmington and would love for dd2 to get exposed to the chicken pox. I'm willing to travel if necessary.

anyone know of a good thrift store/charity place to donate items? I've got some things I'd like to donate and if it's a good cause all the better.

Also I've heard rumors of a food co op 'round these parts anyone have any info?

Hannah ~ I've just joined a Wilmington AP playgroup thing. They're on the Yahoo groups. That might be a place for you to get connected with people closer to you for CP exposure.

Viola ~ I only know of the thrift store at Camp Lejeune. It's run by the SNCO spouses club. I don't know what they use the money for.

Hey Marine Wife! I didn't know you were expecting! WOW!
That's great! It was good to see you today! sorry my brain was so fuzzy!

FOOD CO-OP INFO
United Natural Foods
www.unitedbuyingclubs.com

Coastal Family Harvest is the name of our local buying club.
The delivery comes once a month on tuesdays in the afternoon.

johnandtama@earthlink.net
is the email for the local ordering contact

Viola
the United Methodist church across from the garden
has a thrift store and drop box. The thrift store is great
they still sell stuff for 25¢

also by Food Lion in Richlands is the Richlands Community Outreach
I've sat on that board and was very active at one time. Great people
In addition to the Thrift Store:
They have emergency funds for rent and utilities etc and help a tremendous amount of people. If you ever want to do some active volunteering that is
a great place. My children and I would stand in line at the food drop (1st monday of the month) and take the food to local shut-ins that could not get there. It was a great experience and a great way to really feel connected in our community.

Thanks Mercy. I haven't been very vocal about being pg because it's still so early. I'm only 9 1/2 weeks. That's what I was talking about when I said I couldn't get a normal dress for the ball. I already had to buy a maternity dress!

Marine Wife, I took your dress comment to mean that
your choice wouldn't be normal cause your such a fun
vibrant non-conformist kinda gal ; )

Love the fun dress up evening of the ball but hated seeing
the bridesmaid's gowns or the slink slink slinkY all over the place!

There is a great dress shop around the corner from the garden that has really afordable ball gowns some cool ones too.

No. Unfortunately, the dress is plain black. There's nothing to it at all, very, very boring. It's not even all that dressy. DH says I can accessorize to add color and excitement but I can't figure out how. Yeah, some of the choices people make for their dress for the ball is quite interesting. I find it fun to watch and see.

Mercy- How does that food Co-op work? What kind of things are there? We just moved to Hubert last month and I havent found a health food store anywhere. Would I be able to get things like that there, or is it produce?

welcome to the area danielle!

go to the website.
It is actually EVERYTHING except fresh produce.
They even order Frontier that offer herbals and oils and vitamins etc.
You can order directly through the website once you contact Tama and
get a member number. Then all the orders are tallied and a splits list goes out on email so that everyone can help split cases or bulk grains/flour/beans/dried fruit/cheese etc.
Then the order is placed and the truck delivers in jacksonville-downtown
across from the court house at First Bible Church(i think that's the name)
and everyone helps unload and split orders and then goes home.
It used to be big with co-op babysitting and potluck etc. But now its just a food pick-up day. I haven't participated in quiet awhile. Tuesday are always hard for me. and funds are very tight. But I'm looking at placing an order this month.
If you'd like to go watch the process, pm me.
also there is a health food store in New River shopping plaza across from Big Lots off 24 near old downtown jacksonville....don't know the name
but Mavis is the owner and she is wonderful. I looked it up its called
The Natural Health Food Center 347-4721.

Wow that sounds great!

I'm so happy there is a health food store here! The last place we were at had nothing. Is the New River shopping plaza past Western? Thats the farthest I've gotten on 24 so far. Since we live in Hubert I don't get out that way too often.

It is just past Western.

The health food store is not that big so don't set your sites too high.
But it is a great resource for homeopathic remedies and knowledge.

Infant of Prague has a great thrift store over there too.
and New River Pottery.

If you stay on 24 past Western you'll probably notice the THRIFT STORE
written on the side of the building HUGE. and then the New River Sign
High at the entrance. That's the long way to get into the shopping center but the easiest to direct you to.

Happy Shopping! GOOO BIG LOTS! They actually have (not always)
a ton of organic stuff like UNCHICKEN soup great organic vegan alternative to chicken stock. and sometimes MUIR organic pasta sauces and salsas
black beans and chic peas etc. interesting organics 85% of the time.

Shannon, I'd love to know a midwife here who will do HB! One of my clients wants a HB but I am new and don't have many MW contacts except in OB offices.
Anyone planning a playdate before it gets too cold to hang out at the park?

NakedHousewife, PM me w/your contact info & I'll pass it on to my MW.

A playdate sounds like fun! Monday or Tuesday next week is best for us.

If anyone wants an old catalogue for the United Natural Foods coop to check out prices in, LMK.

Also, I have a box of 6 maternity shirts & 1 nursing top in sizes S & M that I want to give away. They are in good used condition. A couple have tiny light stains. Anyone interested?

Shannon ~ If they are l/s, I'm definitely interested. I've been looking for l/s maternity shirts and am not liking what I'm finding. The styles are so weird these days (or maybe I'm just an old fart ).
