Suga: Glad to hear that you are home and doing better now. You have been in my thoughts and prayers all week. Now, lets keep those girls in there for at least 9 more weeks. Keep off your feet.
Katie: Have fun painting and getting the room together.
Cincin: That is sooo sad. I will keep them in my prayers. Yayy for scheduling your c-section. How exciting.
Rio and Mellie: I got my crib at Burlington's and love it. It also has the drop down side...it is the only one I could find in the new type of style. It is called the Delta Liberty if you want to google it. I couldnt find it online at Burlington's only in the store. However, there are other stores that carry it. I paid less than $200 catching a sale...but that is the average price of them too, which isnt bad...considering it is convertible and will last Zach forever. I have heard that the best bottles ( I am breast feeding too but want back up) are the Avent ones. (I dont know about BPA though....does it matter if you dont microwave them?) I have heard from my local friends/moms forum that they use tap water to heat them. Anyhow they all love Avent...but the trick to get them not to leak is to tighten the lids only till they are tight and not beyond. (Not too tight...Not too loose either.)
Mellie: You are soo tiny. My belly looks huge compared to yours. Love the names, Evelyn was on my girl list.
Loopie: Yes, you should post some of your art pieces. I also think I would buy a "Bumpin '08" tshirt. LOL
Corny: Love your blog. I left you a comment (in case your were wondering ...who Tammy is). LOL
Jomae: Brrr winter...although you probably arent as miserable as I am with all the heat. LOL I would take winter right now. LOL If I go outside ...I swell up like a balloon. I got my ring resized already. 1 3/4 sizes!!! Free sizing...so I figured what the heck. It is slightly loose now, but I am sure to fill it out soon. LOL
Love all the puppy pics. I am a kitty girl myself. But, I lost my sweet kitty "Doogie" (as in Howser...LOL) after having him 16 years almost 3 yrs ago this November and cant bring myself to replace him. I decide that while Zach was young ....I wouldnt worry about picking hair off of him every 2 minutes...that I would wait till he is around 3ish and asks for a puppy or kitty and then let him pick out the next one. Sometimes it is really lonely not having a fur baby...but losing my Doogie was just so devastating to me...that I still cant take down his 8 by 10 pic. I lost my parents when young....and I had Doogie longer than I even had my parents. So I suppose that is why.
I just finished another round of antibiotics for another UTI. Just took infant/children CPR classes (CPR changed this year for those of you who didnt know). It is 30 compressions to 2 breaths now for everyone. We took Newborn Child Care classes....and Child Birth classes. We really learned alot and loved the classes.
My GD is out of control again. Not really bad, but working on it again. I had a huge BS drop last Monday night and was glad we were able to catch it in time. I dropped so fast that another couple of minutes...I could have gone into diabetic shock, seizures, and died. However, we were in the right place at the right time and all is good now. After that my BS went sky high and my insulin has been upped big time again. Apparantly I am at the point where the hormones are up and the placenta is growing ...which for me means upping my insulin ...and which is why they test everyone else around 24-28 weeks. I didnt know that.
Other than that...I am well, just very very tired. I have slept alot this week. If you remember I had insomnia bad in the first trimester...so my body is all whacked out. LOL
Hope everyone else is doing well. Hoping to hear from the girls that are missing, too.
