How far along are you? What’s your EDD? I’m 12w6d, due January 2nd.
Do you have names picked? If so, would you care to share them? We do have names picked out and have for a while, but I am not sharing them until birth!
What gender do you think you’re having? Will you find out? I think it’s a girl, Darling Husband thinks it’s a boy. I think it’s just wishful thinking in both cases. We will find out!
Will you be revealing your gender to family and friends? And, if so, how? We are not revealing the gender before the birth – it’s a secret!
What have you purchased so far? More like what HAVEN’T I purchased! The things still on the list are a breast pump, cloth diapers and the acoutrement, crib, stroller, carseat, and playyard.
Where are you/will you register? We’ll register with Babies ‘R’ Us probably.
What are you researching right now? Strollers! Holy crap the amount of options is insane! We have it narrowed down right now to a Baby Jogger City Select, or a Phil & Ted’s Navigator.
What are you loving about your pregnancy? Knowing that I’m going to be a MOMMY! Counting down to appointments and ultrasounds. Sharing our joy with friends and family. Having a built-in excuse to not do the dishes!
What are you NOT loving about your pregnancy? The nausea (I forgot to take my pills last night!), the constant feeling of fullness and aching in my tummy, feeling uncomfortable at night and not sleeping well.
Any worries – irrational or not? Squishing the baby when I realize I’ve been sleeping on my tummy
Do you have a birth plan figured out yet? If so, what is it? No “plan” per se. I’d LIKE a natural birth (vaginally and with no drugs) but I’m planning on going with the flow, I want a delayed cord clamping, and I want baby to be put on my chest immediately after birth for skin-on-skin contact. Darling Husband will be in the room with me, and hopefully so will my mum (if she’s here). I’d like a midwife but we don’t have any in my area. 🙁
How has your DH/DW/Partner been handling your pregnancy so far? He’s been really great, although he now has a constant fear that I’ll overheat since I had a dizzy and sick spell last Saturday after being out in the sun all day. He’s constantly asking me if I’m hot. He’s also been doing a lot more around the house so I don’t have to – it’s REALLY nice!
How, where, and when did you meet your DH/DW/Partner? We met at the pub. A co-worker asked me out for drinks one night, and asked that we stop at the pub first so he could buy his friend a beer for his birthday. The friend ended up being Darling Husband, and we stayed there all night. I knew I’d met someone pretty special when I woke up in a hungover fog the next morning and remembered that I’d let Darling Husband hold my hand all night at the table – despite having NEVER let a guy hold my hand before, not even in my prior couple of serious and long-term relationships. It wasn’t until Darling Husband and I started getting serious that I realized my co-worker had thought it was a date that night (it totally wasn’t for me!), because he stopped answering DH’s calls and became frosty with me at work. That was 6 years ago. We moved in together after 6 weeks of dating (I’d always refused to live with boyfriends before), I took him to meet my family 3 months after meeting him (I’d never brought a guy home, and when my mum asked me once why I didn’t, I told her that the guy I DO bring home will be the guy I marry), and we were engaged within a year. LOVE THAT MAN!!!!
