Wrong species for this newsgroup! For those who do care ... time around (we also have a 3 year old daughter).

I know she's an angel. Claire is a beautiful name. Height? weight?

Thanks. She was 20.5 inches long and 9 lb 7 oz (yup, a big one!).
Mary

I call her very healthy. Sounds like she is off to a very good start.

OWCH!
Congratulations Mary and family on your new addition!
Yes, just after that an aquaintance bought a "Cooper" (?) Darling little car, but the only thing I could think was "holy cow, I'd be dead right now..."
Yeah, circumstances in my life used to be that surviving an accident (by having a big honkin' truck) took precedence over needing to avoid an accident. ie., Desolate roads call for less agility from a car than does darting in and out of gridlock.

Yes, I don't go into Atlanta ever, ok, well, sometimes for a night out, but DH drives then. I am so lucky to be at a place right now where the most commuting I have to do is to the feed store (both livestock and grocery) most of the time. I love that I can get bales of hay, grain, etc. in the back without even lowering a seat.
Now because of how much traffic (and how many lunatics) I have to deal with, having the nimbleness of a lower car and being able to avoid the accident in the first place is the more pressing need.

Yes, I can very well understand that. Unfortunately, in said accident, I was just sitting in traffic, being nimble at that point didn't help much =/ But I know that on the rare occasions that I have driven in very busy areas, with narrow lanes, that I am a bit nervous about how heavy my truck is and how "nimble" it is not.. still feel safer overall, as I just have to make sure I don't run someone down, and I am more comfortable trusting myself than the crazies

Well, everyone knows that pregnancy is catching, so if it ... as it is in person, everything should work out well.

Hey, spread a bit of that contagion this way, would you? I could use the help. (And good luck Cate!)
My Thursday night agility class has/had 3 pregnant women (my daughter was born 3 weeks ago,(on July 31!)(snip rest)

Mary, that's my birthday too! Congratulations I'm sure she is a beautiful baby.

Well, everyone knows that pregnancy is catching, so if it is as catchy over phone lines/patch cable as it is in person, everything should work out well.

I hope my younger sister can catch it too! She has been trying for the past ~6 months and so far nothing:-( And she is a most sensible sister and will let me take photos of Trip with the baby.

Wrong species for this newsgroup! For those who do care - she was born July 31 at 5:44 AM. We named her Claire. She's an angel- and things are much easier the second time around

You mean we're supposed to stay on topic! Did you find it hard to run agility when pregnant? A friend finished the UD on her sheltie when she was something like 8 months along. Couldn't see the fronts to save her life. Taking gloves and articles from the sheltie was pretty darn funny too.

I didn't find it very hard, but then my pregnancies have both been really easy. I did my last trial at about 7 months. I finally quit classes about 3 weeks before my due date, mostly because I was making my instructor very nervous. I had the opportunity to do a big trial when I was 8 months and could have done it OK, but it was in a small town about 90 miles from home and I didn't want to go into labor there, so I skipped it.
It helps that Bonnie isn't particularly fast, so it was pretty easy keeping up with her. And, surprisingly, she was really good the last couple of weeks, although she was checking in with me alot so she was even slower than usual. The worst part was the day after class, I usually ended up kind of sore.

I've seen a friend handle her cattledogs twice in agility while over 8 months pregnant. Julie is a small girl who carries entirely in front. It was simply amazing how she pointed her dogs around the course.
