DS does fine with flying (based on our trip to Italy over New Year's, which admittedly is only like 4 hours of flight time), but not so great with sleeping in strange places.

So generally the trip would probably look like this:
1 April: leave Turkey, fly to Texas
14 April: fly from Texas to Georgia
17 April: fly from Georgia to Virginia
1-2 May: fly from DC to Turkey
12 June: Turkey back to DC
I would do it if I didn't have to go to Georgia in there. So, if you could get the family from Georgia to either come to Texas or Virginia to see you and S (thereby extending your time in Texas and Virginia), I'd do it. There's no way I would fly from Texas to Georgia to only stay for 3 days and then fly to Virginia.

Re: B2B - Back to Basics Snowy Thursday

Heidi, I am jealous. I can't wait to travel over seas

And speaking of walking.... This is one of those stupid mothering things that I need to just get over, but some family members keep pointing out that my 3 yr old walked at 11 months, and my 1 year old is 12.5 months now and not walking. When they talk to rediculous, than it makes you worry. I KNOW I shouldnt, but occasionally you do wonder.

So how old did all your children start walking since im curious

Just because the list is long doesn't mean that even half will get done

silly family ignore them

my first didn't walk till 15 months old, my second walked at 9 months old - it varies so much between children, I wouldn't let it worry you just yet

I probably should have posted the details of what the trip would entail...DH would be gone for about 30 days, although if I tell him I really don't want him to go he could probably get out of it. If he does go, I don't want to stay here by myself with DS. We're definitely going home for about 6-7 weeks in June/July/August for our annual R&R and some training DH needs.

The trip home is a minimum of 14 hours flying time, just to the DC area. Then I'd continue on to either Richmond (2 hours by car) or Texas (5 more hours flying). The time difference is 7 hours to the East coast and 8 hours to Texas.

14 April: fly from Texas to Georgia
17 April: fly from Georgia to Virginia
1-2 May: fly from DC to Turkey
12 June: Turkey back to DC

DS isn't walking yet, and slept okay on me on the plane when we travelled last month, I'm more worried about how the time change and jet lag and strange places are going to affect him, and if that's a bad idea to do a 7-8 hour time change three times in less than three months.

Jennifer, I'm sorry to hear that MH is sick, that's no fun! I'm glad you're able to be home with her, though. Sending get well quick vibes your way!

Becky, your to do list makes me want to take a nap just looking at it.

Macy, I hope the boiling and Tide helped your diapers!

Christina, to you. I haven't personally dealt with depression, but a lot of my family members have and my heart goes out to you.

As does your travel plans A nice long nap...

I have caught myself in a terrible cycle....I eat wrong and have those sugar lows and highs...so then I eat more....I have gained what feels like a ton of weight for me...

So then I have less energy which means more coke then I sleep less which means you gain more weight and less energy and I get more behind and more....


I need to snap out of this bad

I'd love to talk to a medical care professional about it but i dont have one yet I'm working on it ..... though I tried to talk to the midwife I tried out a couple weeks ago about a 5 lb overnight gain and she really didnt listen at all - just looked at overall gain from my starting weight at home to her scale - completely different numbers than my concern - oh well that's one midwife eliminated - though not by any means for that alone

thanks again!
How far along are ya?

Any HCP that doesnt answer a question you have directly, precisely, with professionalism, kindness and good information should be immediately ejected from your list. Awesome looking out mama

I may try to figure out a better way to redistribute the travelling, or put off going to Georgia until this summer (although south Georgia in August...). I think DH wants me to make the call on whether he should accept the trip, but I just don't know. I mean, I love my family and his and would love to see them, but the idea of all that travelling by myself with DS is not appealing. I don't know. I'm also cranky today, so maybe this isn't the best time to try to decide.

My DS is almost 11 months old and not even close to walking. He can cruise along a table edge, but still can't figure out how to get around the corner most of the time. My mom says I didn't walk until well after a year, though, so apparently he takes after me in that respect. , it's hard not to worry about stuff like that. DS has a little playmate who is three weeks older but does stuff like a month and a half before he does, and it always stresses me out a little bit when she picks up a new skill that he's not even close to getting yet.

On another note I was at the po yesterday..I seem to practically live there now that I am selling off what doesn't work for us lol..and I was sending something to Canada so I filled out a customs form and the lady was like "I'm just not brave enough to try cloth" and of course I start going on and on about how its much more than prefolds and pins (even though for some of us thats our dipe of choice ). I even gave her the ds website and told her to google cloth dipes and really research it. She said she was due in Aug. It felt so good to "witness" to someone about cding! Maybe I converted her! lol
Welcome! I have already converted my older sister and a cousin of mine who have not even conceived their children

Welcome Anna.
MH woke at 4:00 AM to nurse then start puking at 4:15. She has finally settled into a quiet sleep now...rough 2 hours. Poor thing. I am in my third pair or jammies, hard to get a 13 month old to puke in one place.
So I am home from school with her today. DH is great with her but is not so good with sickness.
I just feel so badly since I gave it to her.
WOTB: nana bottoms bamboo fitted, fleece pants (easier to clean the wool when she gets herself)
WOTA: holding my sick LO, laundry, packing
Hope MH feels better soon!

I'm not really noticing that I'm swollen, my rings are tighter btu not impossible to remove my any means though they are loose typically and my ankles look okay - i measured my fundus and its right on, my rib cage hasnt really changed measurements nor my hips just my mid section which of course makes sense.

I dont know Im both worried Im gainning too much and too little

I should be posting this in the pregnancy forum instead huh
It sounds like you are eating good for the most part! I wouldn't worry

DS started walking at 10 months, went back to crawling for a few weeks, then woke up and literally started running 2 days before he turned 11 months DD doesn't walk yet of course!

to all of you battling depression and anxiety.

WOTB: ubipf, purple cover, purple snappi
WOTA: work, clean, cook, start reading my homeschooling book after kiddos are asleep

My sewing machine came in so I have to pick it up from walmart DH has school though so I don't know if I'll be picking it up today or tomorrow.

QOTD: If you sew, what was your first project? Have any pics?

my first could run at 10 months - the second could barely walk without help at 13 months - it seemed like it took him forever though to learn to walk and he didnt employ his ability often either for the first couple months - it seems like it was mid-late May (after turning one at the begining of march) to walk regularly inside or out. And my dh drove me batty wondering if we shouldnt get him checked out - and my parents about his hearing because he just starting talking a decent amount over Christmas this year - comparable to our first son at 12-18months

I'll be 23 weeks along this weekend
