@AvantLaLettre: yay for home stretch! So excited to have a REAL BABY soon. I said to my husband this morning, I have a REAL baby in my tummy, like he could be born TODAY and he’d be alive and well! It’s so weird to think of having a child.
@bells: Yup! I started back at 28 weeks, and in just 1.5 weeks I start WEEKLY appointments (starting at 36 weeks)!! YAY! They aren’t a whole lot different, it’s just that we have to be monitored more closely. We still do the routine, weight, Bridal Party, temp, pulse, FHT, fundal height, baby’s position, and any questions I may have. We usually have some type of test of talk about or something like that.
@Marriedandlovingit: Oh.em.gee ME TOO. I feel guilty saying it, but I really haven’t liked being pregnant at all. Some days I feel good and I say, oh I love this. But that is like once a month maybe? I have been in pain everyday of the pregnancy, there is always something wrong. And I am ACHING to fit back into my MEK and silver jeans! haha
We had baby name “cold feet” too. I got really hormonal about it. But the ladies here on the bee really helped me, and everyone loved the name so that made me feel a million times better. We announced it at my first shower on Saturday and seeing the positive responses from all my friends really strengthened our decision that we made the right choice!
I think Jarrett is cute 🙂
@skibobrown: Wow!! big trip! good luck 🙂 I hope you feel well for it.
@nonoame: Yay! It does start feeling real the more baby stuff we get. Well… our glider was a splurge for us. We are on a crazy tight budget too. But I really didn’t like the classic wood gliders most people get, I wanted something really nice and cozy. So my husband saved some extra money and got me an upholstered glider. It was $450, and that was the sample sale floor model! We also got an additional discount for paying in cash. This was from a local business (not like BRU), so they could do things like that.. do you have any local baby store businesses? Call and ask if they’re willing to sell a floor model. This store was getting all new models, so they had several on clearance. So no, $380 isn’t too much 🙂
