For the longest time I just went by what my obgyn said  (I switched halfway through to a midwife) My midwife ever since I started going with her has been correct. I told her the conception date when I first started going to her and she must have came up with the 6th. She would always tell me I was a certain amount of weeks ahead then what I thought. I finally texted her and "corrected" her and said I'm due the 19th not the 6th and she was like "nooope you need to call me"...
So about 2 days ago I found out that I am actually due the 6th of Feb..not the 19th of Feb. That is next thursday!! I mean bottom line is this little guy will get here when he sees fit but still...I feel a liiiiittle silly.   Anyone ever do that??
Thanks for the tip and link. This is my first year home schooling my kids so I test it all out to figure what will work best.
The thing I would change/add is the comparison between parents and what we choose to do within our own family. While I appreciate the sentiment...it's not necessary. working parents and stay at home parents are equals and we all have our place in this world and majority of us care for our kids in ways that we can. Then again this is coming from a place of happiness, support, and the daily acknowledgment/appreciation of what I do.Some people might not have it as good and...
Umm..nope can't say there is. How you do things in your home is not my concern until it is harmful to my kid. Example...waiting to tell me your dog bit my kid on three different occasions. Or rather I had to ask about it to confirm it. They were not telling me on purpose. Blew my mind.   As for the sex thing...sex is natural and yes while personal it shouldn't be kept as this big dark dirty secret. As long as you keep your porn stash locked up somewhere and your sex...
Ugh I'm sorry you have such a less then supportive mother. That isn't fun to deal with. Especially since it has to be so frequent with her being one of the caretakers
Awesome thanks for all the tips! I was able to see a holistic family dr (who specializes in kids since 85 percent of her patients are kids) who backed up my midwife. Assuming all goes well I am excited to stay with my baby for two weeks. And do fun yet relaxing things with my older kids..I am hoping this will be a nice bonding time with them, too.
I have gained about...30 pounds
My initial reaction...if she is the main cook in the house she should have say. I don't care if she is the child of the house. I mean think about it..as parents we always say "you will eat what I cook or don't eat at all" Well talk about a do as I say not as I do which let's face it hardly works. The kids always either end up copying our actions or do everything they possibly can to be nothing like us.    BUT sadly that advice would not hold over well since she is the...
Nope. Sex and intimacy are important to us and we make it a priority and find time. For me I was never married before I married my husband. But I had a son from a previous relationship...so yea we are pros at quickies and waiting for the more fun stuff while kids are sleeping. And then we had our daughter and our sex life was still going strong.   Now a days I am pregnant with my third and still feel like having sex but sometimes if I get heartburn or acid reflux I am...
