DH still has to get to the Dr for his referral - not sure if he's putting it off on purpose or not. We need to talk about what we're doing until/after the vas and check and all that.

Oy, yes. Me too.

Ugh, me too! I have some overnight pads (use them only for the first few days/week), near a whole pack left there. And I have a pack of regular ones which is more than I need right now but I have to use them up, lol.
I also bought a menstrual cup when I first got pregnant, but have tampons left under the cupboard. Argh.
Although, for me, I just plan to hold onto those in case DD1 wants to use them when she starts menstruating. (how scary that is to think of, lol!)

Well now that we moved we have a Target 5 minutes down the street oh and there is a STARBUCKS TOO!!!!
We don't have "real" tv, but we have netflix and DH used to download the few tv shows we really liked - which I need to bug him to do again cuz there's now a whole season we've never watched!
I wish they had friends on netflix!

Our target has a starbucks in it - I avoided it last night, but I'm sure that won't happen every time I'm in there!

What is it that you do when you have to take antibiotics?
That's awesome of her! I would love someone to come clean my house *sigh* I may make a little list for the kids to help out with - they'd earn video game time for it, and I'd get some clean bathrooms!
for babies gaining!!! WTGrow girls!!!

I'm so sorry you've got so much infection going on. That's terrible.
When I have to take antibiotics I always grab probiotics and start them right away. With breast issues I would also make sure to get a Rx for APNO and use that as well.
With the probiotics you do have to watch for timing - you can't take them at the same time (or within a timeframe) of the antibiotics, for both to be effective, and some antibiotics you have to take with or without food - it can be a bit tricky to schedule, but it can be done.
I would also give the girls probiotics as well - get capsules, break them apart, have the babies suck the powder off your finger. There are children's probiotics (here anyways) and I give about half a capsule to my babies when needed.

I wouldn't be able to use scented ones, blech.

I hate it when my babies cry in the car. I feel so stressed and helpless.
We just try to get wherever we're going as quick as possible and then get Piper out to feed and comfort asap.

I would love it if Piper took a paci - just for this exact reason! But she still really doesn't like them, and in her car seat she just gets all the more angry and upset if we try the paci.

I can't imagine that hassle or cost. I'm sure our cost will increase a bit, too, but it's never jumped a bunch when we've added any of the kids, and it comes out of DH's paycheck automatically so it doesn't seem that bad, kwim? It's worse when he's on leave and we have to write a check for that $$!

For us it's just a matter of paperwork - I've got to get her birth cert first (it's been ordered, but just waiting for it to arrive) and then we can get her her own health # and added to our additional insurance.

My Boba came today, can't wait to try it!!!!
Argh, that's annoying. I'm waiting on Piper's birth cert still, but for the first 3 months she's just on/under my own health care so it's not a huge deal yet.

Enjoy your boba!

The ergo does have a short back, I think it's got the shortest back of all the ssc's, but babies shouldn't be too tall yet. Not for months yet.

AFM: Well, I like Target I mean, it's really just another Walmart (although not quite now cuz our Walmart went to a supercentre) but at least it's at this end of town so if I need something it could save me 20mins of driving And there's a starbucks there, so that's a plus!
Oh, and they DO have the skirts I want... but they're WAY too long. Like I could chop a full foot off them It wouldn't work to cut it off the bottom, though, so I'd have to figure out how to take it off the top and move the waistband down. Grr.
They do have a few very similar skirts but they're mat - they're shorter though I may go actually try them on sometime when it's not so crazy in there.

We almost didn't make it yesterday though, but thank goodness everything turned around and worked out.
When I ate breakfast I had a near immediate IBS attack - I haven't had an attack in months... like I don't think I've had one this whole pregnancy (normal for me for some reason). This one was terrible. I don't know if it's cuz it's been so long that I don't remember or what. But this was bad. I couldn't stand up or walk. I managed to get a snack for Levi and put some shows on the tv, then crawled to bed with Piper. Thank goodness she was happy to just nurse and nap. Levi came in at noon and we all napped for 2 hours. When I woke up I felt much better. Tried eating, everything was fine, just tender.
Very strange.
Then DS1 came home from school and his teacher called, he'd "forgotten" his agenda outside at school. I made him go back to get it, it had a note that he had had a report due Monday morning that he never mentioned to us at all. So he had to start and finish the whole thing yesterday! We ended up taking him to DH's parents' house (we had a yummy supper there, bonus!) and he missed out on target, but at least we still go to go!

Made for a late night for everyone, but we had fun
