How is every one doing in this thread? Where is everyone else over 40? Looking forward to hearing from you all.
It's Friday, it always makes me happier than other days of the week!
How exciting to get the chance to choose for your DD's birthday! Did they advise to choose it one or two week earlier than due day? Do you have a name for her now? I hate picking up names, somehow it gives me headache, so I told my DH, it's his job to give a name to our DS. 33 weeks, wow, great success!
Does your nose behave now? How is the work load?
Thanks for asking, the meeting went very well - a result without any distraction from our DD, of course. Unlike last year (we had it in Hawaii), one of us (DH or me) could not attend the talks nor poster sections. Montreal itself did not impress me very much, Canadian people in this city don't seem to be very different from Americans, although most of them speaking "French" which confuses my French husband. I had much better experience with the Canadians in Vancouver - please don't be offended if any Quebecans reading here, it's just my personal experience and my first time to Montreal and I was busy the whole time, I could not know any better.
I like annual meetings since this provides the opportunities to meet old friends who are from all over the world - Germany, France, Japan, China and many other countries. Next year will be Washington DC, a less exciting place.
Well, one bad thing about our trip is that our DD was completely spoiled by my friend in our 5-day absence. Now she does not want to go daycare, nor use potty willingly (she would do only Ga Ga, not Pee Pee), or eating nicely on her own chair anymore - it's amazing how quickly she can discard all the good habits and pick up bad ones...
Oh, about the pg, I still have morning sickness, but it stays only in the morning now, instead of a whole day long event. On the top of that, I have stomach acid reflux which I will have to use prilosec - I used this last time also, but I think it was much later than 20 weeks. I also found myself very sleepy again during the day, it's like the third trimester comes earlier this time around. I had to nap few times during the 8 working hours. Another thing is my weight gain is faster than last time (9 lbs so far), then I was told boys makes mums bigger.
Ok, enough about me, take care!
