Crawling, gagging, squishing, and moving

Yesterday Tater started army crawling and Squdge figured out how to crawl forward.  He's been crawling backward for about a week.  Now we don't need to look for one of those reverse beeping things to stick to him.

None of the older four children crawled at 8 months.  They were 10-13 months old when they learned.

Today Squdge figured out how to sit.  finally.  The older four learned to sit around 7-8 months as well.  Tater doesn't sit yet.  It's hard not to compare them to each other.

I'm dizzy often.  I gag when brushing my teeth.  I haven't thrown up yet.  Danny did have to pull the van over on the way home from the beach Saturday so I could dry-heave and drool all over the side of the road.  I don't generally throw up when I'm expecting.  I just feel like it.  This time though, I'm pretty dizzy.

Something in my house smells baaaad.  Danny has changed bums and outfits of the three in diapers and we finally figured Hammy has evil gas.  You know what, we are down to about 510 diapers a month.  Pretty good eh?  We've had a handful of good toileting experiences with the Hammy this week.  If I wasn't so fatigued and nauseas I think things would be going faster. 

My stomach makes a squish sound when I poke it in the place where my abdomen is still separated.  I think it's rather entertaining.  But Danny doesn't. 

I had my first OB appointment today in a beautiful town over an hour away.  I was 2 minutes late. 

After realizing my insurance company did not mail them the referral letter and actually mailed it to my previous OB, trying to convince them that I truly am covered, getting the referral worked out with the proper OB's name, requesting the insurance company to mail me and the doc a new one, offering to pay cash for the visit so they'd just tell me if there was ONE heartbeat, they still sent me on my way

So my first OB appointment will not be until May 6.  Hopefully then, someone can tell me how far along I really am.  My guess is 8 weeks right now. 

We got a house.  No, we did not buy a house.  We got a new house assigned to us on base.  A new house!  On May 12, we will get the keys to move in.  I am through the roof with excitement.  One thing on my list for the new house is a dehumidifier.  I'd like to say good-bye to all the mold problems and mold-related illness we've endured this past year.

That's it for me.

Three cheers for a house! That is WONDERFUL!

GRRR at the OB office that wouldn't take you in. so annoying.

Hooray for 510 diapers a month, though I am still in total awe at that.

Whew! Lots going on.

Congrats on the new house. That's a huge relief. Hopefully it's bigger!

I don't know how you do it. I am in shock over the number of diapers you change. I hope Hammy takes to the toilet very quickly. Congrats on the new house. Sorry you have to pack up when you are not feeling well. If you lived close I'd come help you pack.

Yeah for the house! I'm glad you won't have to wait too long for it either.

I would have been pretty upset about the ob appt if I had been sent away. ugh! It's not like it's right around the corner from you. And I can't believe they didn't let you pay cash! huh?!

Okay, MISSED your last post. How did I miss your last post?! HOLY FREAK I MISSED YOUR LAST POST!

Sorry. I'm a terrible fan.

Congrats on the little 'un - and the house!

510 diapers? Holy Hannah. My mom started using cloth diapers with many of my younger sibs, and I was one of the lucky older kids who got to deal with them.

However, I'm sure she saved money, right? So it was probably worth it in the end for her.

Teachinfourth-- TOTALLY laughed out loud at your comment on this post and the last one. And I haven't heard someone say "Holy Hannah" since I lived in Utah.

If I weren't experiencing a super-keen sense of smell right now due to being in my first trimester, I'd cloth diaper them all. I probably will after this fun symptom passes. If only I could convince my oldest to wash or help change cloth diapers...
