In order of importance:

1) Wee-beastie is still alive and growing right on schedule — 8w6d today (2 days head of LMP calculations). The heart-rate is high — 182 bpm — but the physician’s assistant said that this is fine (she even used the word “perfect” again).

2) The Colace/fiber/increased fluid intake regimen worked. Finally.

3) My mother has decided not to leave my father. For now, at least. She still does not know I am pregnant, and I intend to keep it that way as long as possible.

    Yay! Such good news on all fronts.

    Stay away from applesauce and bananas. East anything with a P (peaches, pears, prunes, plums, etc) – P is for poop.

  2. Farah replied:

    hahahah P is for poop..love it! I am glad all things in utero are going well. I am sorry that your family is going through difficulties. You are better at keeping a secret than me. i just plain suck at it

    Thrilled to hear about wee-beastie, even if I’m not exactly sure what the appropriate reaction is to your other news.

    Congrats on the report on your wee-beastie! And glad you parents are working it out (hope this is a good thing).

    Wow, terrific news on w-b! I hope your parents are doing okay. It must be such a difficult time for them.

    Congrats on everything looking perfect with your wee beastie! 🙂 What great news! I’m glad the colace & fiber are working for you, too. (I am having similar problems in that dept.) What a relief to hear your mom is staying with your dad for now. I hope they can work it out. I absolutely understand keeping the pregnancy news private. I didn’t tell my mom our news this time till 11-12 weeks, when I had CVS testing. Lots of people like to wait till the 1st trimester ends to share their news. It can be kind of fun having a happy *secret* between you & DH (except my DH can’t keep a secret and he told his mom way before the 12 week mark, only I never knew till later). LOL! Best wishes Momma & baby!!

    I’m not sure if mineral oil is okay with the wee beastie, but it sure works for Little Mr. Hard Poops (aka MM).
