Re: Can I join you here in August?

Hi, welcome!

Great name, I love it! Is the gender "guess" from an ultrasound? I guess it must be, but it seems crazy that you're only a couple weeks ahead of me (I'm due the 17th) and you are already pretty sure of the gender.

How did you whip your lotion? That sounds like a good idea.

Re: Can I join you here in August?

oye and all you with the early bird babies!! I wouldn't want one too early but my DD was two days shy of 42 weeks and they had to pull her out. Literally. (forceps not what I had planned ugh but the doc who did it known for his forceps skills and she is perfect so whatever gets the job done right?!!!)

My perinatologist told me the guess, so I think it is accurate. He is head of perinatology in at least 2 hospitals and often has VERY long waits to get to see him. He told me at 30w 6d that my son born at 38 weeks (planned c-section) would be 8 lbs at birth. He was 8 lbs 1 oz. It was then I realized how smart he is!

My OB has a long letter that he (peri) wrote her. I talked to my OB because I accidentally scared her (happens more often then I like to admit to people) and she told me that I should have a copy of it. I can't wait to see it. I see her for the first time on the 12... I thought my peri was going to deliver me so I didn't schedule with her till late.

Sorry, I had my triplets via classical c-section (vertical cut). My son was born the same way because they thought he was transverse. Because of that I am not allowed to go into labor. So this is typical for me to not go past 38 weeks really.

Forgot to answer this bit.

I took coconut oil and whipped it up in my mixer. I started with about 1/4 cup. Then I took and melted cocoa butter (about 1/4 cup but it is hard to tell as it wasn't solid) in a canning jar in a pot of boiling water. I was dumb though and put the hot liquid on the coconut oil. So it all melted together. So I put my mixer bowl in the fridge for about 15 minutes then took it out and whipped it again. MUCH better this time though it took a few times of scraping the sides to be fully mixed and close to lump free. DS LOVES the stuff. I have stored it in the fridge and I have yet to get it out today. I will let you know if you should do that.

Maybe you all having babies early will encourage this one to come out in a timely fashion.

Thanks! I'm totally going to do this, it's so dry here and we've been going through a ton of moisturizer for the kids. What did you mix it in, a KitchenAid? Sorry for the 20 questions!

Yes I mixed it in my KA stand mixer (that I normally curse every time I use it). I also added a bit more coconut oil to the mixture as I think my cocoa butter measurement was a bit off. The key is to make sure it is WELL mixed and a semi solid when being whipped.
