YAY!! I'm so glad it's time for your lodge!!! It's so nice to see my feb mamas. I love your story of how you two met, I think that is simply the cutest story ever.
Looking forward to seeing your baby, you've done awesome sticking out the bedrest
All I can say is "Wow" to all of your efforts to keep the baby inside you, especially the bed rest part. That must have been very hard. But you're almost ready to give birth now, so it seems. KUP on everything.
The story of you and your DH is very sweet. It made me think of a scene in the movie "When Harry Met Sally." One of the older couples who are interviewed about how they met grew up very close by, almost met countless times, and then finally met when they were at a hotel in Chicago. Your story made me think of that.
DD Eowyn born 2/8/7
I TRULY hope you get the birth center birth that you want!!!! You have an amazing story and deserve a wonderful birth experience!!!
Thanks so much girls! I'm all teary-eyed reading your posts and realizing that I will be holding my precious little girl so soon...
Today's been good so far, still losing my plug a little but I haven't had more than a few contractions. I'm spending my time working on handmade birth announcements that I'm rubber stamping. If I get them done before she's born, I'll post a pic for you. It's therapeutic for me to work on rubber stamping/scrapbooking stuff
Today has been a little emotional though. I talked to my best friend since 1st grade who has a 2 1/2 yr old and is wanting more kids but she has a brain tumor and is going through chemo right now, so she can't. She's trying to convince her husband that they should adopt. She was diagnosed w/a brain tumor almost 4 years ago when she woke up one morning having a seizure. She had brain surgery immediately and then got pg right away so never underwent chemo. She gave birth to a perfectly healthy little girl named Mia. What was left of the tumor didn't grow any bigger until last year, so she ended up having to start chemo pills and is still getting MRI's every 3 months. She has her next appt on Monday, and I get so nervous every time.
Sorry this is OT, but she's like a sister to me since we did EVERYTHING together in school and even went to college together. We were inseparable. Without her I don't think I would of finished college because 2 days before my 20th B-day, my BF committed suicide. It's been over 10 yrs but seems like just yesterday. Anyways...
She's very thankful to have her daughter but I know she's hurting wanting another, and her sister is pg w/her 2nd and I'm pg and it's just got to be so hard for her. We don't see each other enough since she lives 1 1/2 hour away and works crazy retail hrs. but maybe now that I'll be a SAHM I can drive to see her 1x per week or something.
TIA for listening to me ramble OT! I'll KUP
Hi Theresa. I love the story of how you and your hubbie met. It is so sweet. I am glad to hear your little has stayed put for now. I look forward to following your story. Thanks so much for sharing.
Your announcements sound great...I wish I was more creative. I still have the announcements on my "To Do" list.
So sorry to hear that you had a rough day. I totally understand about your friend. I hope she gets some good news on Monday and I hope you are able to spend some time with her after your daughter is born.
Hang in there!
Hi Theresa-- what a great story about you and dh. That is so cute!
I"m so sorry to hear about your IRL friend-- I'll be sending healing vibes her way.
GL on the keeping baby in there.
I also read the Bradley books-- I was able to take bits and apply them. What I found most helpful were his guideposts in labor-- they held very true for me, both the physical and emotional stuff that most women seem to go thru.

I would love to see your birth announcements, they sound amazing! I am sorry to hear about your friend, that is really tough but I think it is a wonderful bond that you two have.
I hope your baby stays put a little longer!

Definitely post your birth announcements!!! I would love to see them. I recently started scrapbooking as well and it has been VERY therapeutic! (in fact, all of our families got scrapbooks of our medieval wedding for Xmas this year ...)
I'm truly sorry to hear about your friend
