I too love, love, love your wedding dress! With your black hair, ugh! Just gorgeous!!! The proposal sounds totally picture perfect as well. Seeing your early belly pix took me back - it's neat to see how far we've come and how close we are. I'm glad this little bean stuck!
How exciting and special to be pregnant with your sisters. Love your wedding pics and dress, the color is amazing!
Welcome to your lodge! Great intro! I too love love love your wedding dress! How special to share pregnancies with TWO sisters!
Welcome to your lodge! Love your intro! Wonderful pictures and a great story! I don't even have any sisters, but I can just imagine how wonderful it would be to be pregnant at the same time as two of them! How exciting!
Looking forward to following another member of Jordan's clan! :)
Welcome to your lodge!
My first time around, my oldest sister (redmom) was due 3 months before me with her 4th, and my next sister (loriloo) was due three weeks before me. Sharing a pregnancy with both sisters was a blast. Lori and I were on the same BB and ended up delivering only 2 days apart. And we're all into NCB. It's SO fun to share that with sisters, huh? This time around, Lori was pregnant 4 months before me, so we shared it again.
ETA: We're all HUGE Billy Joel fans, too- a a matter of fact, all of us happened to go to one concert while pregnant with our first child:). One more fun thing we have in common:
Anyways, congrats to ALL of you. And welcome to your lodge! Can't wait to follow your journey.
Awww what a great story!! I have to say, I think about you ladies when I daydream about beginning the birth traditions for our family. I hope our children are just as close and involved in each other's lives. It is truly something special.
I'm so excited to see how everything goes!!
Thanks everyone! I loved my wedding dress! :D
Tonight I decided to pack my hospital bag. I don't want to have to use it, but better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it, right?
Here is what I put in my bag:
* pjs & slippers
* toothbrush & toothpaste
* hairbrush & ponytail holders
* nursing bras
* nursing pads
* nipple cream
* maxi pads
* a couple sleepers
* hats, booties and mits
* diaper cream
* baby loton
* receiving blankets
anything I'm missing...?
One week until I'm all clear for my homebirth. I'm very excited!
I'm so excited to meet this baby, but at the same time I realize how easily contained it is right now and want it to cook for as long as it can.
The only thing I can think is maybe some lotion or something that smells good to you (scented massage oil or something like that). And maybe a comfort item; picture, blanket, pillow, or something that you can focus on and will make you feel more at home (if that's possible in a hospital).
Something to read, like a magazine or book. Depends undies (they are the BEST right after birth, trust me!). Tylenol. Peri bottle.
Even for a home birth it's really nice and convenient to have everything right in one place for the first couple of days when you probably won't want to be walking around a whole lot.
Ariel, that's a great idea, I didn't even think to bring something homey.
Arty, where would I find a peri bottle? Walmart?
