I hope we get it!
I hope it works out for you guys!

We go to a small birth center in a very old building with thin walls.
That's really neat! Sounds like a nice, family place, kwim?

AFM: I had a bit of a nap yesterday afternoon with Levi, but then I was able to stay up past 9pm! Not sure if it was all because of the nap or not, but it was nice to just cuddle with DH and watch a show, just the 2 of us! I'm really hoping this means my energy is returning and I'll be moving out of this utterly-exhausted-all-the-time phase

Mine wouldnt even give me a read out when I found the babe's. And lastly, if it was accurate at 127 then I agree with everyone else- DS's was pretty low the whole time!
yeah, we heard it, but we didn't count it. Baby is a squirmer. I don't think they were sleeping since we had to chase them a bit :P

good idea for next time, thanks

Oh dear! I hope it was just a strange fluke and not a sign of things to come!

Oh, sorry. Those random bouts of vomiting are so annoying.

I CLEANED MY HOUSE TODAY!! I even rearranged the living room a bit! And swept! And dusted! I couldn't make myself do the dishes though - too many smells.
I'm back, baby!

Re: Chat Thread ~ Sept 30th-Oct 6th

I made it to my 12 week scan. Nearly died form over full bladder... but little one is looking great (when s/he finally decided to roll over and cooperate.) And i finally got to see little one too since the screens were broken at my first scan.

Still not sure it if feels anymore real though... but I did get my pics ot take home so that might help convince me.

Congrats! My tech always tells me to go pee right after we see the heartbeat. I always drink way too much.

Yay!!

And yay for house cleaning, but boo for throwing up.

Afm: I had to change OBs. After two days of arguing with my insurance company and the OB's billing department I threw in the towel. I changed to my second choice office and when I asked them a tester insurance question they passed so I set up an appt! They came highly recommended and I wont deliver here anyway so its all good.
