I have an appointment for Monday. When I made the appt I told them I was referred by you Jen so maybe they'll give you a goodie. Hannah, I'll tell them you sent me too when I go in and maybe they'll do a double goodie. I'm so looking forward to it. I've had such bad back pain this time around I'm hoping it helps that too. I don't think I want this baby to drop anymore right now though, I already feel like I've got a head between my legs.

So, park tomorrow... Gianna had a fever on and off today so I'm going to have to see how she is. But, then of course we won't be going anyway because Jen you're already in labor right now, yeah?

plus, you can get two trips to the chiro for the price of ONE massage. Although, I just had cranial sacral & massage treatment last week and it was so awesome I felt like a fool for not doing it sooner. Its a good idea to see a chiro the whole pregnancy if you can...

i think I am going to need more that one treatment...the baby moved into a really good position after last night, but once again, I woke up and i barely feel any pressure at all. all in good time I suppose

we are heading to the park today.... I think we are aiming to be there around 10ish.

What time is everyone meeting at the park today? We've got afternoon plans which means the baby HAS to take her nap at noontime. I'm afraid if we go to the park she'll fall asleep in the car and totally mess up her nap schedule. Which translates to we probably can't do park this morning and I would have if it weren't for the rest of the day.

Created an instant family (7/89 and 5/91) in 1997. Made a baby boy 12/05 adopted a baby girl 8/08. Ask me about tandem adoptive nursing. Now living as gluten, dairy, cane sugar, and tomato free vegetarians. Homeschooling and loving it.

I really want to get OUT today; it would be great to see y'all!

Funny too, b/c I was finally getting ready to make cookies (pseudo-healthy, like carrot cookies, pseudo because still have sugar and flour). But I've been putting off making them because I am mentally protesting the fact that my mom flooded our household with homemade baked goodies. Guess who ate like half of them? So I feel compelled to re-fill the cookie deficit.

But the lure of seeing y'all, especially the preggys...

So sorry danielle, but I promised my mom I'd help her out this morning and we couldn't handle two more kids at her place--it's kind of a disaster. I hope you found a solution!!

Thanks for sharing, Becca. It's funny, because just this morning I thought "am I going to miss knowing Jen had her baby because I'm not on facebook?!?!" I knew I could count on you!

SO HAPPY! LITTLE BABIES! Oh man, they're playing "silent night" on the radio and now I'm crying.... and trying to imagine Jen with a little boy on her hands...

Ok, Becca, we're next!

Happy Birthday Aeron

4 years old today.

We're on our way to Flagstaff to celebrate his birthday. Staying at a hotel with 500 acres of forest and a million Christmas lights strung all over the place. I hope he remembers this birthday.

I woke up today thinking about Christmas morning 4 years ago when I lay in the dark, wondering if I was in labor, listening to Christmas songs about the birth of a blessed boy.

So our friends just had a spina bifida baby about a couple weeks ago. She has had two surgeries so far, coded yesterday and pulled through this morning through lots of people rooting for her. I feel so blessed with my two beautiful, perfectly healthy babies, I just can't imagine what these new parents are going through and feel so helpless as far as being a useful friend right now. Mostly just looking to send lots of good vibes, prayers, thoughts their way!

Thankful to have all of the resources and the beautiful friends I have found along the way in my parenting experience!

and to your friends and their baby...and you too. How nice they have such a concerned, helpful, friend in you. I think that means a lot more than people know. I too am so thankful for my kids' health, and when they have had health issues (thankfully not all that serious), having supportive friends around me meant(means) the world, even if they couldn't "do" anything, iykwim.

Hannah,

Is this the friends of yours we met at Alina's birthday party? It's amazing how much more "real" this feels having met the parents (I assume it's this couple.)

Please tell them I said congratulations on the birth of their daughter. I am sorry for their difficulties (having worked NICU for 4 years, I know from a nurse's perspective how challenging their time is now. As a mom I can't even fathom what they are going through.) However, I want them to know that the miracle of their child is not lost amongst the challenges.

Hannah, thinking of you and your friends. I can't imagine what they're going through, but I'm sure it's a comfort for them to know they have caring friends like you and Ian!



And happy belated bday to Aeron! I hope you all had a great trip up to Flagstaff.

And now I'll share a cute story. Carter has been talking more and more about the baby lately (I think being able to see my belly move is making it more real). So yesterday we were in front of the co-op on 4th avenue having a snack and some people walked by with a stroller. Carter noticed the baby inside and I said "Do you think our baby will ride in a stroller like that?" and he said "No! A sling!" haha, he has been indoctrinated into baby wearing at a young age.

Hi there! Hope you are welcoming new members! I haven't read too many pages back, so there's no way I can catch up (congrats on the new babies!), just thought I'd introduce myself and start here at page 12!

Lived in Tucson most of my life, have a house on the west side, WOH fulltime 4 days a week, have a 7 month old baby girl, 3 dogs, a lovely husband....

I see some of you meet at Carter Park...while I'd love to meet up, seems like you all usually meet when I'm at work. I do hike every Friday morning with a couple of other moms and babies, so if any of you are interested, I'd love to meet you there. We've been meeting at the Camino de Oeste trailhead (off of speedway), do a quick 40 minute hike to the Starr Pass resort, where we get a coffee and hang out and nurse our babies on the terraces outside, and then another slightly longer route back to the trailhead. It really is alot of fun!

Welcome desertgirl!!

I'm Sarah, I have a 2 year old son and am expecting a new baby in about a month. I am home with Carter M-Th and work on Friday while my husband stays home-- so you and I have opposite work schedules!

The hiking sounds fun... maybe after my baby is born I can join ya'll. For now my son likes to hike on his own, which means we make headway veerrrryyyy slloowwwlly, but it's fun. who knew there were SO MANY sticks to look at in 1/2 mile? Despite my slow little hiker, I'll let my husband know ya'll do that on Fridays, maybe he'll want to join if you don't mind a guy along.

The "playgroup" was meeting rather regularly at Connor Park during the week, but weather, new babies, new jobs, etc., have distracted many of us.
