Monday Roll Call for August 6th
« on: August 06, 2012 at 10:33 AM »
Hello!
Who's still cookin'? Any deliveries last week? My best friend delivered her baby girl yesterday -- a full-termer weighing in at nearly 9 pounds! What do you ladies have planned for this week to help pass the time?

Also, if you have any shopping to do on Amazon, please click the Kindle Fire link at the top or bottom of any page to get to the Amazon website. When you do, Amazon will give 6% of the purchase price of whatever you buy to KeepEmCookin. KeepEmCookin is self-funded, which means I pay for hosting and maintaining this site out of my own pocket. I'm happy to do it, of course, but every contribution helps!

Keep 'em cookin',
Angela

I had my son on the 1st at 26 weeks and 3 days. i wish we could have made it longer but we made it 5 weeks on bed rest so that's something I thin.

Keeping the rest of you all in my thoughts and hope you keep cooking

Still here.  Now 33 weeks on bedrest week 3 (for IC after emergeny cerclage).  Last sono on Friday went ok for once.  Am hoping Wed's appointments with the MFM specialist go well too.  Will be staying busy this week with trying to work from home, get all my soon-to-be 4 year old daughter's birthday activities finalized, netflix movies, trying to get further on a knitted baby blanket, and facebook.

Congrats libradragonmom.

Hi Ladies,

This is my first post on the forum. I'm 23 weeks and have been on bed rest since 19 weeks when I had a cerclage placed for IC. I'm spending a lot of time watching the Olympics!! Also, my mom and stepdad are visiting this weekend to help clean and cook for us. I find my week goes by quickly when I have something to look forward to over the weekend! I'm grateful for every day that passes!

Libraadragonmom, I'm sending lots of positive thoughts to you and your baby boy!!! I'm sure those 5 weeks made all the difference for him. Congratulations!

Gtsonora, glad to hear you're still cookin'! Good luck with your party planning! Oh, and I'm trying to teach myself to knit from YouTube and Internet videos.... We'll see how it goes. I haven't had the guts to officially "start" a project! Let me know if you have any tips!

Still cooking-30 weeks +4 days. On bed rest although difficult with a toddler to care for.  Today I had lots of contractions but nothing new.  Thinking of starting progesterone shots. Ultrasound next week. 
Libradragonmom sending you lots of love your way.

33 wks + 2 days today. I get off bedrest on Saturday! :) This last week feels like it's longer than the whole 5 months I've been on bedrest though! Three more progesterone shots left, if I make it to 36 wks :)

Baby #6 due 9/22/12 - bedrest from 14 wks due to contractions
