^^That's wonderful, auntie! My son felt like a teeny frog to me...what do you feel, a spider?!? :D

auntie aubrey 05-18-2008 02:01 AM

^ ew, no. it's like butterflies and bubbles.

it weirded me out at first because up until now it's been a fairly conceptual thing. now all of a sudden there's something wiggling around down there and it's not me. there are people in there!

I'd like to announce that I've re-realized it could be worse.

I'd like to announce that cayenne pepper in my tea definitely soothes my raging sore throat just like you said it would. Just one more example of how this conversation has enriched my life in so many tangible and intangible ways...

brightpearl 05-20-2008 03:06 PM

Cayenne tea and gargling with salt water sometimes help when nothing else does. Tea with a TON of honey, the juice of a whole lemon, and an inch's worth of sliced ginger is also good.

In other happy cold remedy news, hard candy and dark chocolate have been shown to be as effective as cough medicine in clinical trials.

I'd like to announce that I've been in the Isle of Man for 36 hours now

I'm presently about 2/3 of the way down, on the north end of the big bay on the right hand side of the image.

Stephi_B 05-22-2008 02:37 PM

It's ready, the first FULL version! Really with everything, even the "And I wanna especially thank..." part. :D
198 pages after re-formating, yep and ca. 2/3 of that happened during the last 6 weeks or so (:o, procrastinitis)

Till boss is through with that thing I won't come to the wilderness (except there is a habilitation-celebration BBQ like next Mo :)), no I'll sit on me balcony and read scripts, books and stuff to pimp my knownledge. Really! No, I won't sit there, drinking a beer, getting a tan, reading a novel or magazine, I'll really learn. Really! (:D)

^That's great, Stephi, congrats!

I took my son to see Indiana Jones last night, and I'd like to announce that I was horrified to hear Indy say "nucular." After a few moments of shock, I decided to believe that it was subtle political commentary, and I was able to enjoy the rest of the movie.

Sort of.

lukkucairi 05-23-2008 08:47 AM

happy happies, Steph!

I would like to announce that they keep announcing that my flight will be delayed one more half hour past the time they last announced it was delayed until.



...more like "maybe"

i have officially purchased my first maternity clothes. i had been rejecting them because i kept telling myself, "i'm not that far along yet."

but today, in the dressing room, i finally stopped and really looked in the mirror and realized that actually i am. as if the aches and pains of stretching weren't enough of a confirmation.

brightpearl 05-24-2008 06:49 PM

Yes, eventually the rubber band through the buttonhole of your husband's jeans just doesn't cut it anymore. :D

I remember being 6 months pregnant and thinking I couldn't possibly get any bigger...hahahahaha. So here's a photo I found of a woman carrying twins, at 37 weeks.

You can't imagine it now, but that's where I want you to be, with big ol' babies at as near full term as you can get!!

auntie aubrey 05-24-2008 06:57 PM

oh god, not that big. everything i've read says it's not necessarily healthier for them to be ginormous at term.

i'm doing a lot of visualization. i read a study that was saying that they don't think it's necessarily any more beneficial for twins to go to 40 weeks than 38 because those last two weeks may actually be more stressful for the babies as they get soooooo crowded. so i'm visualizing that they will stay put until 38, and then after that it's fair game.


summer in georgia, pregnant with twins. oh god what have i done?

brightpearl 05-24-2008 10:01 PM

Oh, very few people would go to 40 weeks with twins, and so many go way early. And true that ginormous is not necessarily good.

But btw the baby girls in that big belly up there were reportedly 5-14 and 5-5 lbs. when born at 38 weeks, so your belly is going to be somewhere around that size, believe it or not. :D I'm so jealous!! It's terribly uncomfortable and all, but it's an irreplacable experience.

By "big ol'" I just meant over 4 or 5 pounds, big for twins. ;) And at least at least at least 36 weeks would make me happy.

we don't talk about that. my doctors have been emphatic about their last several twins-bearing patients who all went 38-40 weeks. so thus, visualization of 38 weeks.

also, one of my mom's cousins had twins back in 1976 and only found out she was having two a month before she delivered. they actually gave her an x-ray, can you imagine? times change. she ended up going all 40 weeks and each baby was something like 8lbs. i have no idea how she did it.

8lbs is what i mean by ginormous.
