Lia, I meant to mention to you, being GBS+ isn't a big deal, its just IV antibiotics during labor (and you'll have to have an IV anyhow if you're going to go with an epidural), which I've had all 3 times, because I've been GBS positive as well. I've never gotten a yeast infection from them, but I'm sure if you're concerned you can chat it over with your OB and see what he/she says about it. I'm totally expecting to be + again this time too.
I've got my DH in the kitchen now making dinner, I've informed him that I am not doing it today! I'm tired now after cleaning the computer desk, cleaning out the girls closet and getting the baby clothes out, and filing & shredding papers... all I want to do is sleep.
Sera.. good for you on getting the crib together! You're one step ahead of us! Our cradle is downstairs in the corner still... trying to get my DH to do any preparation right now is like pulling teeth!!!
Hi ladies, I have not posted in a while so I thought I would even though I have nothing of interest to say! It so exciting to hear about all these babies being born! Everyone had me convinced that I was going to have this baby soon, but I think she's gonna hold off until the very last moment - I just have this strong feeling that I will need to be induced, but who knows. I told DH that we are going to DTD everyday next week at 1:00 (before he goes to work). I think he almost had a heart attack! This is probably TMI, but the only comfortable way for me to do it anymore is in the shower standing up so that's the only way he's getting any! Plus then I can wash my hair ... I love multi tasking! haha!
Hmmm I'm trying to decide if I want to go to church tonight - the thought of sitting on the pews almost kills me. Jesus will still love me if I stay home and watch Extreme Makover Home Edition instead right??
Oh Sera I love your name choice! (my first name is Kaley)
My energy comes in spurts. I hadn't done any laundry in quite a while, because DH was home all the time, and I was so sick, so now its catch up time! At least I've got my girls clothes washed (with the eception of a few lil thigns) and our stuff is washed too... so now its just a matter of getting our towels and stuff washed... it had been so long that we didn't have any more face cloths left, no dish cloths or towels left either lol
In between my energy spurts, I'm exhausted, sleeping in the chair or on the couch. The Braxton Hicks I'm getting also knock the crap out of me too!!
OH on a side note... lol... my best friend phoned me earlier to tell me that she had a dream about me last night, that I went into labor and Adam wasn't able to make it back from the wedding, but that some how SHE was able to make it here (DH is going to the same place where she lives lol) anyhow, she made it here in time, and the doctors didn't get into the room in time and SHE ended up delivering our baby... a boy. lol So, now she's convinced that we're having a boy. But yeah, Adam didn't make it back in time for the birth, which is waht I am fully expecting to happen. frigg
Kaley, you've got me cracking up with the multi-tasking comment. That's just way too funny. Hey, he should be happy however it may happen, right? And, I don't think Jesus will love you any less for staying home tonight. He's compassionate and understanding. Plus, at this point, you just need to do what you need to do in order to be comfortable and happy.
Vera, that's crazy about your friend's dream. Well, at least she's delivered a baby in a dream, so if she has to do it in real life, she'll at least have somewhat of a clue what to do!
The computer is making my eyes feel funny. I think I'm going to go take a little break and lay down for a while. I'll be back later...
Hi ladies, no news on Melissa yet? something for sure must be happening
I've been lazing around all day so I haven't really read back, I'll post and then read.
I got a call this morning from SIL saying that MIL saw I put my status on facebook as "had my second baby shower today BIG SURPRISE, and the best part my mom was there" and took major offence to it, thinking I meant the only thing I liked was my mom being there. Maybe I worded it wrong but it's not what I meant at all. Now I'm all emotional over it so concerned that I hurt MIL feelings. It was a wonderful shower and I was so greatful, I just thought it was great that she was able to get my mom to come all the way down here for one night when she was only down a month ago and will be back in a couple of weeks. I feel terrible about it all. She went to alot of work and the surprise was such a complete success. Apparently she's on a rampage. I don't know what to do to make it better, I can't call her because she'll pretend like it doesn't bother her (which I know better). Uggghh and another think, my ex-best friend (superlong story and this one is already long enough) posts on my wall (facebook) Wow, now your true colours really shine through , I bet (insert IL's last name) enjoyed reading that" seriously she wouldn't have thought anything of my status had she not overheard about the drama. I didn't give her the satisfaction of a response, I just deleted her from my friends list.
Sorry for the LOOOOOOOONG sob story, but between feeling so crappy today and crying all day over the IL drama, I was just too drained to come on and post. sorry to be such a downer lately, you ladies are so right, we're so lucky to have these LO's and I should be complaining less and being more greatful for the good fortune in my life. so from now on I'll be more positive. Well at least until the next b!tch session lol.
Allie - I am sorry that you are having such a horrible time right now. I don't think what you said was offensive at all, but your MIL is choosing to interpret it the way that she wants and it doesn't help that other people are playing into it. I'm not sure what I would do, maybe just give her a call to thank her again for the great party and just how extra special it was for her to have your mom be apart of it and how much it meant to you that she would do that. I'm sure it will all work out don't get too down on yourself about it, because YOU know exactly what you meant when you wrote it.
Two days til Wednesday in Japan....two days....Heck, by this time Wednesday, I'll have already been in the hospital 3 hours
I'm still utterly exhausted from the birthday party yesterday and everything hurts.
Shhhh......Dad doesn't know I'm awake.
Aw, Allie, that really sucks that she took it that way....but it's not your fault. You didn't mean to hurt her feelings at all, and only meant that it was awesome to see your mom. Seriously, a MIL can't think that a girl doens't want to see her mom! I'd let it go if I were you....you have a lot more to worry about right now than MIL's feelings. I think it's crappy too that a friend, ex or not, would post crap too. You weren't malicious, you didn't mean to hurt anyone's feelings, you only posted that you were happy to see your mother. I wouldn't justify any of that b*ll**** attitude with any explanations!!!
Okay, so MY mom just calls me hysterical. A little background, my mom has serious mental issues going on, and has had for my whole life. The roles have always been kind of reversed, and being an only child, I think it's made me the strong person that I am. Anyway, she's upset she says because she'll be the only grandparent not here on Wednesday. My IL's live about 2 hours from the hospital, so they'll be there...and my dad and step mother decided to drive up last minute and just stay till Friday. My mom was also hysterically crying that she was afraid I was going to die during the c/s, or some post op complication would arise that would kill me. So here's me, wanting to cry, not because of my mom being upset, but because why do I have to calm my own mother down? So I tell her she's the only grandparent who will be with Colby for the first 2 weeks of his life, since she's coming up on Friday, and that the statistics for c/s mortality is skewed. She's still crying but calmed down enough. So apparently she also called her doc before me, who upped her meds and told her to not go to work tomorrow. So now I get to worry about my mother and what she might do, instead of being happy that I'll have a baby soon. Man, let me remember this when Colby gets older, to be a MOTHER and not a child!
