Okay, so it looks like the journal system has changed a bit - I knew something was going on when there were no new entries on the "old" pregancy.org site. If you're new here and want to read journal entries on my previous 29 weeks of pregnancy you can do so at the old website - I'm not inclined to rewrite them all here, sorry.
But here's the basics: I'm 30 yrs old and expecting my first born baby boy, whom we've named Christopher James, at the end of June. My DH is a firefighter for the city of Oakland and we've been together for a total of 7 years and married for 3yrs. We were TTC for 3 months when I finally got a BFP!!! We're a little bit nervous and very excited about the day our BabyLove arrives!
Speaking of the day our BabyLove arrives - Because my DH is still on probation (which lasts a year and is taken very seriously by the department - you're not allowed to take an unscheduled day off or call in sick for any reason without risk of being "let go") - there's a good chance that he'll actually miss the birth! I try not to think about it too much because the thought of giving birth without him there not only terrifies me but it makes me super sad too - but I'm trying to be rational and understanding about it all and I hope that the fire dept. will at least let him take off work for a couple of hours at the point where Christopher is only a few good pushes away from entering the world.
Well, my tummy keeps getting bigger and bigger - I don't know how much longer I'm going to be able to keep working - I have my next OBGYN appointment on the 28th (I think I'm going to have my doctor fill out the paper work for disability at that appointmen) and then my disability will hopefully begin at the beginning of June.
My baby shower is in 2 weeks, and I have nothing to wear!! I also have a bridal shower and a wedding to attend! - and I have nothing to wear! I ordered a couple of dresses online - they arrived last Friday - I tried them on they look horrible! They're definitely going back! And I guess I'll keep looking for an outfit that doesn't make me look like a float in the Thanksgiving Day parade! Sheesh!
No more progress on the nusery - still waiting on my mom to make the window valences and we're still waiting on the arrival of one more piece of furniture.
DH and I are taking a Newborn care class this Thursday - I can't wait! I hope they teach us basic stuff and give us lots of good tips and advice - we'll see!
That's all for now!
