@paw: Thanks for the new thread and great questions!
(Lately I’ve seen all the posts get all smushed up without spacing – not sure why)
We are on board 5 after 3 months….which means that by the time we are all popping out babies we could be on board 15! Wow.
Praise your SO! Have they done anything lately to make this journey easier for you, or have they gone above & beyond?
I really have to say my Darling Husband has tried. I mean he doesn’t always do the right thing but he really does try. He asks me every day how I’m feeling. He brings me soda water when I’m sick. He kisses me and then kisses my belly. He always asks me if I need anything and has brought me many a craving. Yesterday he really wanted to go to this band that was playing local, but I fell asleep. He just let me sleep and we missed the band and he didn’t even say anything about it. I could actually cry thinking about what a good man he is.
What are you most excited about?
MAT LEAVE!!! Seriously….I count the days. (months…) We get a year in Canada – yes that’s right – one year. And my job will be waiting for me when I get back. Only at like 60% of my salary while I’m off or something but who cares. I’m so ready to be totally domestic for a while!
Any words of advice for fellow September mamas?
Hmm not sure about this one…I’d say soda water with lemon has saved me from the nauseous, bloaty, full and hungry all at once feeling.
What was the first baby item you purchased?
Nothing yet, but I’ve browsed a lot. Darling Husband and I looked at cribs and strollers on the weekend.
Tell us something we don’t already know about you:
I don’t have a sweet tooth at all. Prefer spicy or salty.
My biggest pet peeve in the world is the mis-use of your and you’re. I genuinely don’t understand why people can’t get it.
I married the classic ‘nice guy’ who always loved me while I was off chasing the bad boys. He was in the friend zone for 15 years before I finally came to my senses! Best thing I could have ever done! We are both 35.
-is anyone else having feelings of pulling/twinges? I’m really having them now, every once and a while. Not cramp like, more like a concentrated rippling tugging feeling?
