Just the HIV/rpr/ whatever else and titers for a bunch of other stuff since I am an ER nurse and exposed to everything!! So yay for that. Otherwise, just moving along and eating plenty of red meat and freah fruit. It's so funny how each baby makes you want different foods. Some of them are things I don't ever normally eat and it's like I have no control over these cravings!
for a great appt!

That was REALLY helpful because I could feel the right amount of pressure to bear down with, the best way to "sweep" to find the baby, etc.

So... Technically, you already HAVE hired someone to use a doppler.
for the awesome advice - I never would have thought about that!

that the fleas are gone - terrible buggers to get rid of. We only have had them once (*knock on wood*!!!!) here with our pets - the dog picked them up at a kennel We used Borax on the carpets overnight, vacuumed and shampooed them, washed the cat and dog with flea soap. That all made a big difference, but there was still the odd flea through until winter - then they would all jump on the dog when he was inside, and when he went outside (in the -40 winter weather) the fleas would freeze and die! that's what finally got rid of them all for us, lol.

I'm sorry your DH has to go. I honestly can't imagine having DH away like that. Enjoy your last days together.

Seems like a great idea to me, especially if your little guy if having a good time and liking being there! win-win, to me!

AFM: Holy goodness I'm exhausted after this weekend - being away and busy every day for 3 days is... more than I can handle right now! And while I'd love to stay home today and just catch up on laundry, I absolutely MUST get Levi and myself going for groceries. Yuck! And it's gonna be a big trip, too, kwim? We haven't picked up groceries for nearly 2 weeks!
