YouTube! There are tons of tutorials that may help you. If you do decide to buy one, bring it to your Dr's office. I did and my OB was more than happy to let me feel (listen?) around with their doppler AND mine. At first I was totally useless, haha, but he took my hand and guided it to the HB. 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.

Thats too bad so many of you are still feeling sick. Hopefully the next couple of weeks will be good for everyone!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Hooray! A great heartbeat!

Afm: We got back from our flea-fleeing camping trip. We had a great time and are really hoping this treatment killed all the fleas. We still have so much to do before DH leaves for his deployment and we have an out of town wedding next weekend (our last weekend together). So I will probably be quiet on here for a while.

Glad everything is going well! We have been using the baby appts as date afternoons and we go to lunch without LO who is loving his monthly visit to the in home DC we use on occasion. He never wants to leave there LOL. It's been nice! Yesterday was 12w2d and baby was moving like crazy according to the doppler!

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 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!

Still waiting to be less tired! Some days are better than others tho.

Have an exterminator coming on Friday to get rid of a bee nest on the side of our house. They've been getting inside, but thankfully the have mostly been lethargic or dead.

I swear if the kid or cat tries to stand on, lean on, or otherwise put any pressure on my belly I'm going to flip out. It hurts!

Yay!



My 4 year old DD told one of my students that I'm pregnant, so all of our students now know (we teach K-8th in a multigrade classroom). One of the 7th grade girls asked DH "how many do you need?" It's only our third, but nobody in town has more than 2 kids.

If it makes any difference, all of my kids tried to stop napping around 2 years old - they would fight for a week or 2, then go back to napping like normal. At least for mine, they definitely were not ready to give up their naps, just didn't want to be napping anymore!

We told DD on the weekend (because she kept asking, haven't told the boys outright yet), so I'm sure she's likely told some people at school.

AFM: that my energy gets found somewhere this week! I'm so sick of going to bed with the kids and not getting to stay up to cuddle and watch tv with DH! Boo!
But at least I haven't felt really sick or pukey in the past few days

Today is the first day since Friday that I don't have to get out of the house in the morning - still have to be ready right after school to take the kids to gymnastics, but that seems better than having to go to town right away! Using the morning at home to get some laundry done, and I really should vacuum the living room.
