Hey girl. sorry it took me so long.
I dont know how to change the PM thingy. Ill have to look. I put a pic of me on the April thred. Check it out
I did have a csec with Grant and having one with this baby as well. And I would say No.. It isnt less scary. Ha I am just as scared. I do know what to expect but it is just so much that is scary. But I know I can so do it.
When is your shower? Mine is Feb 28th
And I have thought of a new name... "River".. I love River it is different and really cute. So thats the name this week haha.
I am going to have a nameless baby.
Things ok ur way?
No prob, I hope you're hanging in there, too. Things are OK, also glucose test for me on Wednesday. The idea makes me want to throw up already.
Usually I only go for standard names but I think River is great. It's not out there or anything, but there aren't many around. Jacob River? Has a nice "flow" to it! Sorry, dumb pun. Seriously, I like this one. Maybe this is it!
My husband is totally settled on Joseph and Anna and has started calling them that. I like these names but I don't feel ready to settle yet.
I'll have to dig through the April pages (you gals chat up a storm together) to find your picture and I'll figure out how to post some of my own here.
I wasn't planning on a shower but they sort of improvised one for me just after Christmas. It was really sweet. My mom and I had invited a few ladies, like my aunt and my mom's old teaching colleagues, for a cup of tea and carol singing, and lots of them showed up with presents and my SIL came with a huge bag of adorable pjs (she works at Sears). It's like playing dolls. We got hand-me-downs, too, so we're drowning in baby clothes. For all the other stuff, we'll make it ourselves or buy it on Craigslist. My husband is building furniture in all his spare time, not just for the babies but to organize the apartment so we can all fit in here. It'll be a tight squeeze. I think what we really need is a dishwasher because I can't bear to be on my feet long enough to finish a sink full of dishes anymore and they keep piling up. We'll end up with cockroaches and rats and they won't let us bring our babies home from the hospital because it'll be a health hazard!
Yes Aprils pages is very chatty! It is one of the last pages 38 maybe?
I like River too. I sure if we do name him that there will be alot of puns and jokes made but thats fine. It is different but not too out there like you said.
That was really nice of your mom to do that for you. What a surprise. We have a few clothes that were christmas presents but thats it. So if he came before the shower.. he'd be a naked baby around here haha
That is really neat that your husband is building the furniture. That is so special! I wish you had facebook so you could put up pics and I could see.. or of I could figure out this PM thing on here. Try and send me a message and see if it works.
Our babes will be here before we know it. I mean, Feb is a short month and then it is March, then April. So in no time haha
Does your feet swell? Mine do. and my ankles. Which is another thing that didnt happen with G. This pregnancy is so different. Like ive said 100 times
Hey everybody, I'm going to try attaching a picture of our girl from the 22-wk u/s a couple weeks ago. The boy wouldn't cooperate and kept turning his back on us but we got a good shot of his sister sucking her hand.
This is going so fast! Just about to start the 6th month! I'm supposed to deliver a month early, so that leaves practically no time.
Jboz, finally found your pic and you look great! These days I feel like a whale with splotchy skin. No swollen ankles for me, but plenty of other fun stuff. Did you try putting a pillow under your mattress on your side of the bed so your legs are at a slight incline at night? I hear that's supposed to help for swelling and varicose veins.
Ok, I'll look into Facebook. Lots of people have told me to join and I've been too lazy! You have to click on "my profile" at the top of the page and somehow get into your "control panel" and click on something saying you want to be able to send and receive private messages.
NASTY glucose test today. They added a huge packet of sugar to a glass of water and made me drink it! Ew! If I didn't have a glucose problem before, I probably do now.
what a greart pic of your little girl! So sweet
I did my test today too. It was pretty gross but I didnt pass out thank goodness.
When is your due date again.. I forgot. Pregger brain!
I get an u/s next wednesday and then my surgeon on thursday.. hmm and then my ob again the next week.. Lots of appointments to keep up with!
Oh and I love the names you picked out. My little boy wanted me to name the baby Anna if we were having a girl.. I love it
