Finally I'm half way there today! Sorry I held the board back LOL
Had one MW appointment last week. Baby sounded really good. Moves around A LOT and kicks can finally be felt from the outside occasionally My fundal height evened out to 20 weeks at 19 weeks!!!! I am happy about that, although I'd love twins (as was suspected by many because of the 4-6 week size difference in fundal height at my previous appointments) I wouldn't have been allowed to deliver at home -- so glad it's just one little bean and that the midwife was right -- she told me, you will probably even out by 20 weeks LOL And I did!! YAY
Sorry I have been MIA. We have had several SEVERE problems with DH's family. They are very dramatic people and although I won't go into detail because it's just not worth it, lets just say it's been one of my most terrible months ever. My poor husband is so embarrassed and ashamed of his family and after what we just experienced I totally understand why.
It got to the point where we finally decided to completely cut his mother out of our lives, not something a person can do lightly! It was THAT BAD, but this time his mom crossed a line that is unforgivable and damaging to my children and my family- so that is the end of that. (His parents have been divorced since he was 3 and married to other people) - The sad part is that we have problems with his Dad too, although they are not drastic (His dad is a firm believer that children should have no rules at all -- they should be allowed to play outside alone with no supervision, and no child should ever have to hold the hand of an adult and so on, they are from the country though, were there is nothing around for miles so I can see why they don't understand the safety precautions parents must take in populated areas -- My girls are now 4 and 6, they have been yelling at us for having these specific safety rules since the kids could walk and it's actually been this horrid argument and it's all they ever talk/yell/complain about).
The whole things is just bizarre and frustrating! So yes, I've been kind of off the board other than to check in because I didn't want to take over the board with my crazy drama because I probably would have written a book-long post.
Well, hopefully the drama will stop now and I'll be able to focus on the joy of the holidays, not to mention the joy of this pregnancy and that of my beautiful children.
