Happy Halloween!

The kids went Trick or Treating with our friends and neighbors.  Angela is in orange as Trixie the Halloween Fairy, Clare is in pink (of course) as Sophie the Sparkle Fairy, Nick is Peter Pan and Micheal is the Giraffe.  Our neighbor Professor McGonagal brought her Hermione, Ron and Harry.

My gosh Jill what has gotten into you? Are you trying for Mommy of the year? Don't you miss you comfy couch and snuggly blanket?

Did you really make homemade bread!?

Girlie-girl would love some. She has been munching since breakfast. She was really sick last night, which is highly More...

Hey Jill
Seeing if you needed an extra child for the day.
We are having a battle of wills today. Daddy said he will be home around noon, well, it is 12:00 now and the door has not opened. She is not really being bad, the worst was when she decided to go outside to get her fishing pole. It is More...

Oh Jill darling, my deepest sympathies. I do know how you feel, I had to give up my jeans 2 weeks ago. I could still get into them, but when I sat down or thought about food I could not breathe. I debated about breathing and eating, still under negotiation.

With the girl I did not have to More...

I am having a little confusion or lapse of mememory. Aren't we on the same week? Sunday will start week 15 for me.

I must have misinformed you but too tired to check.

I am in week 15 now.

Sorry to throw you.

This weeks doctor visit is another repeat. I did not gain any weight again for the 3rd week in row. Or, I just had this thought, their scale could possibly only go so high.

Jill, I'm a huge believe in the power of prayer, and now, having read about Lori Smith waking up, I feel such joy! Thanks for giving me the opportunity to reach out to a stranger and do what little I could to help out someone truly in need. With so many of us pulling together with our support, I can only hope that somehow she felt that and gained strength from it.

Jill, The lady you mentioned today on line is likely to have suffered a pregnancy related - or rather delivery related - disorder called Disseminated intravascular coagulation. You can google it if you want to find out more about her chances. She is very lucky she survived the initial assault of the disorder. She will be in my prayers; keep us updated.

Hey, wondering if you got your results back, but then today is a holiday for most. Except for my doctors.
Todays, visit was like all the rest with the exception I have gained 3 pounds. So now I have bypassed my first pregnancy weight.
How long did your little darlings stay cleaned today?

Jill, thanks for the update on Lori. Having a baby is not supposed to be like that. Continued best wishes.
Great news from the cardi, take care of yourself, you're carrying an important package!

I love your description of such a horrible experience. We had two days of North blows with at least one incident a day and two days of the South blows. Yesterday, was the worst, I was ready to take her in to the doctor but they informed me that 102 fever was moderate and not to worry but bring her More...

Congratulations Jill, why I cannot remember you are a week ahead of me is beyond me. I have a date too of when the doctor will take the boy but the site likes to guess so I m trying my best not mention it. We will have to share that information in private emails.

Sunday , the 25th we More...

Hey
Monday visits are starting to be carbon copies. I took the A1C test or something like that--tells your sugar levels for the past 3 months. I started out with a 9 (I think the scale goes 1-9--you want low numbers). When I took it in November I was a 9, not the number you want. Well, the More...

Horror of horrors Jill. I was reading on what could be happening happening with the baby this week--17 BTW--the baby is getting fat this week. Between 5 to 10 pounds. You know who will suffer for this gain, don't you? It is you and I. These little ones have eyes and ears now that are functioning, More...

Oh Jill--6 whole pounds in 17 weeks! I have no idea why I talk to you. (Just teasing).

Each week I get a lecture about not eating. I am eating, I am inhaling celery and cuccumbers continously. Oh don't forget the eggs. And a sensible dinner each night. Have to feed those other two here, More...

Hey Jill--hope all is well. Have not seen you on this weekend, but I think if memory serves this time, you were going away for the weekend. But still not certian.
I am doing the happy mommy dance. We have gone a day an half without a bottle. We just had a naptime and nighttime bottle but I More...

Chuckle, chuckle--snort.

hehehe--You are so funny Jill. Yesterday, one of the nurses asked if I was 19 weeks too. Which threw up red flags to me. I was thinking have I missed a week or something. But the next quack visit said I was 18 weeks.
Here is something to get your brain cells in More...

Oh Jill how do you survive when your little one does not take a nap? This is one time I insist on. As a child, I remember getting in trouble because I would not take my naps, now it will be trouble for whomever messes with my nap.

Though that is a very clever way of handling the situation. Hope you take advantage and take one yourself.

As for keeping hubby in his department.
Very simple, I walk to his department with him first and when he becomes so absorbed in all those contraptions, I go off to my department.
I really dislike shopping and I can spot a deal in a heartbeat or less and I am finished. Then I go drag him out More...

Oh you silly, silly woman. It is a lightly fuzzy blue blankey that is so soft and when it gets that wonderful baby smell it will be Mommy's favorite.

Oh you poor dear, sounds like you need a hug.
I too, have the problem of being told to do something, then the third degree of why I did not do it this way or ask these questions. It is such a pain. Personally, I would not know where to begin with an architech(?). Man has always done, but never More...

Hey Jill, the chocolate-no-bake cookies sound like my kind of cookie. Have you posted the recipe?

Jill, the parabola thing was a guesstimate just to point out that it obviously wasn't an arc. I would apologize, but am glad you got the mental exercise you craved. Thanks for keeping me sharp, too, and for posting the note on my page, because I had missed your p.4 note. Hope all are well in More...

Good morning Jill--Have a million things planned for the day. It has been 3 hours and all I have accomplished was reading the easy page and two puzzles. Now thinking seriously about a morning nap.
One member is returning today and the other is going to stay at grandma's for another day. Hardship More...

OH Jill my sympathies are with you. The purpose of Man coming home before the girl was to help me clean this place up. We are in desperate need of a good mopping--all hardwood floors with area rugs. I think the only achievement made was getting most of the Christmas decorations out to the More...

Now I get to do a part two.

My mother just called, she wants the girl--no problem. Though both Mom and Pappoo have had pink eye recently. I do not know anything about pink eye only it is contagious. Oh decisions, decisions. Mom said there is no oozing which really did not make me feel better, but she is going. If my baby contacts pink eye I shall beat my parents.

Make it stop--I do not like it.

Forgot to let you know about yestersdays visit. It was not good. BP was up, they keep telling me to calm down, but do not tell me how to do that. It is just elevated, but I am so scared they are going to give some other type of medication. I can More...

Hehehe--I would not mind a few days reprieve too. I am lucky that I have two grandmas taking the girl but no one is home to do all the grunge work.

OH Jill I read that as a horrible horoscope. Trying to find things that fit! I am too big for my shoes, I would be in tears if I were you.

My gosh, Woman you are speedy.

How are you doing on keeping your little secret? Only 5 days to go. If I were you I would have busted a long time ago.

In the past hour, I have experience an "Aaahhhh" and tear jerker moments.
First, I was doing the dishes. No that was neither moments, but it has made me cry many times and not even when I am hormonal. Anyway, the girl came running up yelling, "Baby, Baby!" lifts my shirt up More...

Thank you for your prayers on behalf of Lori Smith. She continues to do well. She is still hospitalized in a special facility to help her recover from a stroke. Her speech and thoughts are very clear. She has relearned to walk and is currently working on stairs. Her vision is impaired and as of More...

That is great about Lori. I cannot imagine not being able to take care of my children. Granted right now I am wishing for a grandma or aunt to call and say they want to take her, but she is mine, all mine and I get to hug and kiss on her all I want, whether she wants it or not.

It is about More...

Miracles of miracles has happened today.

The girl was a tad too quiet for minute too long so I went to investigate. She was in what she calls Daddy's Potty. I know scary place for a 2 1/2 year old to be by herself, but she had stripped and pottied in the potty--duty stuff. We were so happy More...

Hey Jill, just wondering if you were at least able to do the easy puzzle this morning.

I do not know about you but I do not care for a stork called Woody.

Do you have any appointments this week? Only two days to go and the possible unveiling (so to speak) for both of us. I have to admit you have done a geat job in keeping quiet about you little guy.

Jill your docs should tell you what they tell me, well besides "but," you need to calm down. I kind of giggle to myself when they tell me that.

The boy and girl will be exactly 3 years apart, if the boy is born on the date he is supposed to be. And he has to be a boy or I will not know what to call him. I refuse to call him a hesheit, that just does not sound right.

Jill, had a walk thru your flickr photos, found the one of your boy asleep with his head on the bed.. have many photos of my #2 asleep just like that taken over a few years !!

I get the feeling you will not do the happy potty dance with us. Though it only happens every once in a while. Gee I would do it with you.

Here is a tentative time line of tomorrow. Appointment is at 10:50 then Man is going to take us out to eat. That should be a two to three hour trip More...
