Did you know??

Did you know that after 4 weeks of moaning and screaming Toby is STILL working on getting his molars through?
Did you know that tylenol and ibuprofen stop working after about 1 week?
Did you know that a doctor will not prescribe anything for teething, even if it has been going on for nearly a month?
Did you know that a doc can charge for a complete office visit to tell you these things???

Oh, and did you know that I'm getting another ultrasound next week Thursday?? Did you know I'm buying a 2 liter of Pepsi this week when I go to the grocery store?? No, not to drink the whole thing, but I intend to have a nice tall glass of it before I go in! Woah, Pepsi at 8:00 am. Maybe not...

For the teething:
Those Gerber biter biscuit thingies. They taste pretty good (I've had my share of 'em) and they are hard enough to help those molars come through. Then anbesol jr - lots and lots of anbesol jr! Oh, and is he old enough to nosh on popsicles to help with the pain? That should numb the old gums enough to give him some relief for a little while.

For the ultra sound:
Dr. Pepper or Mt. Dew have more caffeine. If you're worried about the acidity and carbonation on your belly at 8 a.m., you could always buy a pre-bottled Starbucks Frappaccino at the gas station. That'll get him/her moving!

Sure, Pepsi in the morning. It's even good hot. How's this for a word verification? A Job Joe.

It's in the fridge now. I just hope it lasts until Thursday! Now I know where Everett got his pop tooth!

Yeah, we were pop-a-holics when the kids were little. They did know how to drink apple juice and Gatorade, too, and Lydia has memories of eating the sugar out of the bottom of the iced tea pitchers when I wasn't looking. I did cut back on the sugar, only half what the recipe called for, and I always drank diet pop. For the most part, the kids did, too. David and I still do drink diet. We drink them at room temperature, and if we have left them in the car, we drink them hot. That's where the hot pop comes from. And seldom ever do I drink it before lunch.

A suggestion from a woman who had MANY ultrasounds...drink ice water on the way there (or while you're waiting). It's like running cold water down the baby's back. Or you can drink grape juice or apple juice. If my babies weren't moving enough for the tests, they'd give me grape juice. Grape juice has lots of sugar and always got my babies going for the myriad of tests that they had! I was WIRED after I had a little tiny bit of caffeine after not having any through the pregnancy, so the juice was a much better choice for mommy and babies. :) Can't wait to hear the results of the next ultrasound!!!
