Ok, I have a good thing to say finally. It is about the MIL.
We haven't old her yet about the new jellybean, because she won't be happy about it. Eventually she will, but not for a while. But, my dh said, she is a big advocate of cloth diapering. So, (he says) when she comes around, she will most likely buy a lot of dipes for us! I kinda want to see it to believe it, but she is not shy about spending $$ on the girls when she wants to, so I think it would be true. And, she is a very name brand, expensive, new, type of spender, so I will be willing to take full advantage of that. Last time she bought a crib, a stroller, about a million clothes, and some other stuff I can't remember. If I ask her to buy just cloth dipes, then maybe she will buy all the small ones I need, and then I wil only have to buy the larger sizes. I'm very excited about it, and now I want to tell her right away! I think we should wait, though, at least until my appt in Feb, so then we can have an u/s pic to back it up.
What she senses for you
The day you deliver, outside will be slightly overcast. Your baby will arrive in wee hours of the morning .
After a labor lasting approximately 10 hours, your child, a boy, will be born. Your baby will weigh about 7 pounds, 8 ounces, and will be 20-1/2 inches long. This child will have dark brown eyes and a lot of hair.
But there is more. I sense that you are feeling some stress. This is very normal. However, I would like to suggest that you try some of these methods to pamper yourself a bit.
I don't really have anything to say, but I though I should post something, just so there's not too much of a pause in this journal.
We told MIL last week, and she took it a lot better than I thought she would. She's worried that the airline won't let me board in July, but I'll still have a long time until ETD, so that shouldn't be a problem. But she was happy otherwise, so that is a huge load off my mind.
I have my first appt on Thursday. I'm really nervous. I have never had any problems, but it's still scary. I hope to have an u/s, too. Hopefully this week will go by quickly, so the wait won't be as bad.
Everone now knows, except for my work place. As long as everything is ok, I will be telling them next Monday. Here's to hoping!
I went to pick up my daughter from school yesterday, and found out that she had told everyone that I was pg. I think that was cute, she's so excited! The only problem, which isn't even a problem, is that some of her friends have parents that work in my building, and I haven't told but a couple people at work yet. I don't mind if people find out, but I just wanted to wait until after my appt on Thursday, to make sure there was a hb and everything. Oh, well, they'll find out when they do.
Well, I'm 1/4 of the way through! I've been really paranoid lately, like something is going to happen with this pregnancy, but I don't see why I should feel like that. I have gotten pg on the first try all three times, with no m/c or other problems. I'm actually really lucky, because problems are very common in my family. My mom have 4 children and 5 m/c, my aunt had problems with her first son, and my sis had her first son born very prematurely, and he has problems to this day. I should thank whatever is out there to thank, that I don't have any problems.
We had our first appt and u/s yesterday. I have the pics with me, and will post them later tonight. I just saw the h/b for a second, but the doc couldn't get a good enough angle to keep it in the sight for long. But I did see the little bean, and it's dating only a couple days younger than the date I have, which is fine with me. My next appt is in March, and the doc said he might do another u/s then. If not, then my next u/s is in April, so not that long away!
Well, now everyone that needs to know about my pregnancy, knows. I told my bosses yesterday, and they took it well. I was rather surprised. Now I can start thinking about other things that I need to do, like stocking up on baby supplies and other things.
Wow, what a bad day I had yesterday. I am in that in between stage, where I don't fit in my regular clothes yet, but maternity doesn't fit yet, either. So the result is that I do not feel pregnant at all, just really fat. So I cried all day long.
I think it's so bad because I never started growing this early before. With DD#1, I didn't even start to show until I was well into my 5th month. With DD#2, it was around the 4th month. Now with #3, I'm not even 3 full months yet, and my fat pants are almost too snug. I can't afford bigger regular sizes, and maternity clothes, so I have to suffer until I can fit into the mat clothes.
Other than that, everything is good. I don't feel sick as often, and my energy is very slowly starting to come back. I haven't felt any movement, but it's too early for that anyway. I can't wait for my next appt, hopefully we can hear the heartbeat.
I forgot to write about my dream. I had the best dream last night. Most people will read this and think I was out of my mind, but for me, it was the best dream I could have had.
Ok, my plan (in real life, not in my dream) is to wait until the last possible second to go to the hospital. I want to avoid a repeat c/s if at all possible, and I know that they will roll me into the OR if I don't progress at their pace. So I can labor nicely at home, and then when I get further along, I will go in. I hope to plan it to where I am at least 7cm when I get there.
So anyway, in my dream that is what I am doing, waiting to progress. However, we wait too long, and my baby is born at home. This would be my greatest hope, but I don't think DH would go for that.
The wierd parts of my dream were that I didn't push at all, the baby just kinda fell out (as if I would be so lucky!), and also, in my dream, my sister was there, and she just happened to be a midwife.
So needless to say, my biggest wish would be to have a HBAC, or home birth after cesarean, but I think in RL, I would be the only one that has that wish. My DH is very against it, and my mom would probably faint if I told her.
I have made the decision to try for a homebirth. The problem will be talking my DH into it, but I think in the end, he might not have a choice. I don't care whether my insurance covers it or not, this is what I want. I found a midwife that takes HBAC, so I will be talking to her soon.
