do they make this for humans?

See that stuff on the right–stress coat? It came with Emma’s new fishtank. But doesn’t that sound like something that would be good for us? A few drops in your water and everything just feels good again.

Really though, I’m not stressed. I just feel a little disorganized at the moment. My desk being the perfect example–to my right: a small pile of Mary’s folded laundry, my almost empty nalgene bottle (drinking lots of water!), and plastic kitchen food. To my left: this new game of Emma’s, a flashlight, bowl of pretzel nuggets, desitin and a catalog that came in the mail today. The only clear surface is my laptop’s keyboard.

I usually feel this way on the days when I make the trek to the "high risk pregnancy" doctor in Baltimore. Have I told you that my blood clot is gone? yay! But, I’m still on the shots. Boo!

Today it was a follow-up ultrasound because they found that the baby’s umbilical cord has one artery instead of two. Can we have anymore "issues with this pregnancy??!! The high risk doctor’s reaction is to take me down the trail of "worst case scenarios", whereas my regular OB blows it off with a wave of her hand as "very common". So today’s appointment was to be sure the baby is growing properly. And yes, little babe is in the 90th percentile–getting me out of more high risk doctor visits for a few weeks. Phew!

On a completely different train of thought: have I told you of my new little typepad epiphany? Well, I am very bored with the limited colors that you’re offered when you design your weblog. And I look at other people’s blog and think that their colors are different (and better) from the ones I use. So, I upgraded to a "pro" account for all of ten minutes, to determine if you got more color choices with the top level account. You don’t.
So, then I thought: I wonder if I can put any little code in the box that comes up when I choose my colors. For example, if you choose a green border, the little box shows a mix of six or so letters and numbers that I suppose in HTML code means, "green". So, I did a google search of HTML color codes and found this website.  Here, there’s a whole range of colors with little codes beside each of them. If you choose your colors, write down those codes and then type that code into the box on typepad’s design pages, you’ll get THAT color! does that make any sense?? If not, I’ll have to write it up step by step or something. But it works people! Now, instead of just a mere ten colors to choose from there’s at least four times that many!! You can finally find your perfect shade of green or blue or brown…. Try it. And if this makes no sense, tell me. I’ll try to get more detailed.
So there’s your blogging design tidbit for today. Actually, it’s the first tidbit I’ve ever given, but anyway…. (
added today: Sooo…after reading your comments, it looks like I am the LAST one to figure this one out! Oh well, it still makes me happy! 🙂

And lastly–if you’re wondering if you’ve missed getting an email about your miniswap partner…you haven’t. My plan is to swap names tonight while I’m flipping pancakes. Yes, breakfast for dinner. It’s that kind of day. So, be watching. But no, you’ve missed nothing.

  1. Yay! I’m glad the clot is gone and everything else is going well.

    If you use Photoshop, you can choose from lots and lots of colors in the color picker and it gives you the code. That’s what I use.

  2. 1. glad you and babe are growing and not high risk for the moment! bye bye bad bloodclot!

    2. if i took a photo of my workspace right now you’d pass right out. and that wouldn’t be good, now would it ???

    3. welcome to HTML, sweets 😉 Now, if you had WordPress (which is cheaper, by the way) you would have your choice of oodles of colors, cause we have the mother of all colorcharts over heah. Not that i’m taking advantage of them, just sayin’.

    😉

  3. My excuse is that I am new to the blog, but it is very possible that I just don’t pay attention. I didn’t even know you were pregnant – again, relatively new to the blog. Glad to hear that things are even-keeling, the different reactions of the regular OB and high-risk OB are amusing, though I imagine a drag to deal with. And pancakes for dinner – my favorite!

  4. Glad to hear everything is OK. We had breakfast for dinner too, mainly because I found the chicken apple maple sausage in the fridge today that I had forgotten about, and knew it must be used today (and it’s from Whole Foods, so you can’t afford to waste it!!). But, when I asked Elliot, do you want pancakes or waffles, I got “I want biscuits!!” in return. Gotta love kids. And yeah, that typepad thing works great. Course, I figured it out the first night I started my blog:) Can’t wait to get my swap partner…

  5. Boo to high risk pregnancy clinics. Because my first two were born early and I’m carrying twins now I have to go to the HR clinic every two weeks and have monthly sono’s so I feel your pain in that area. I spent half of today in L&D making sure my little ones were okay and they are (yay!) Here’s to us both making it to the end with good times only.

  6. Oh, no, I hadn’t figured that one out, so thanks for the tip! The only thing I missed on the mini-swap was the sign up. Boo hoo! And glad to hear that the wee one is coming along nicely.

  7. So glad that the clot is gone, but yuck on the shots continuing. Happy that the babe is well too! :)Stress coat sounds perfect! I’ll take 3 thank you very much.Can’t wait to see what colors you’ll be playing with.

  8. I was wondering if you were still a human pincushion! Glad baby is doing well in there.I am soo impressed with all your knowledge about blogs, I can’t even put a picture in my banner! Now I know your laughing at me…

  9. Soooooooooo very happy to hear both you and the baby are doing ok. Big happy smile over here 😀

    Molly, If you need help with html let me know. It’s what I do 😉

  10. Well, it sounds like everything is going well with the pregnancy–despite the doctors appointments. 🙁 A friend of mine just had a baby last week after an extremely difficult pregnancy. She literally cannot keep any food down for 9 months and had to be hospitalized repeatedly and ended up having to take steroids…anyway, it was very scary for her. She actually lost weight during her pregnancy. Well, the baby was born and he was a little small but he was fine! And it turned out the umbilical cord was almost closed up so the baby was getting very little nutrition and the placenta was all messed up. But it is amazing how God takes care of those little ones. (Sorry, guess I’m a little talkative this morning!)
