Aw, your midwife sounds SO sweet. I'm so happy for you that you are in such caring hands.Jen
Glad you are at least getting a bit of a break!Justamama
Glad little Lucy (LOVE that name, btw) is doing so well! I feel for you on the dh issue. Mine actually tends to zone when he is home with the kids without a specific agenda. They end up watching tv and playing video games, and the moment I appear in the room, they are all over me. In the meantime, the messes build.
I almost think it is just as well that he is only going to be able to have a couple of days off this time around!Rhi
for normal poops!! I totally understand - except coming from the other direction. When I finally pooped after 36 hours, I swear it was almost orgasmic. And Yay!! for a good dh and good friend - friends who are willing to help unpack rock!!Sme
Oooh, that would make me so mad about the nap - my dh has done that too. I always get a sheepish look and an apology. Doesn't cut it! The quilt show sounds like it could have been fun under better circumstances though. My MIL is an incredible quilter as well, so I have been to a few quilt shows, and I really enjoy them.Ivory
I so feel for you on the positioning and the labor. Glad you got some good sleep at least, and I hope she moves soon so she can get the heck out of there!! Thanks for the encouraging words, too. They mean a lot.loveneverfails
I can't believe people are asking you that. It is beyond thoughtless and hurtful. For some reason with us, people seemed to forget almost immediately that we were ever pg with twins. (when I mentioned it to BIL shortly after Amalie died his comment was, "oh, yeah, that must have been hard.") That hurt, but at least I wasn't forced to recount the story if I didn't want to. And frankly it took me a couple of years to feel comfortable even bringing it up.
Oh, but I soooo love the little old ladies who tell me how young I look to be having this many kids. Considering I feel pretty close to little old ladyhood myself a lot of days, it really boosts my ego!laughingfox
for 37 weeks!!afm
More of the same kid-wise. Ivory, I think you are right, I think it is the moon. Of course the fact that they KNOW I am limited in my ability to discipline them doesn't help either. Grrrr. Called one of my friends yesterday and, yes, apparently CPS does frown on locking your kids in a dog crate, even a big one. She assured me she has been tempted too.
ETA: One cute kid story from today - Tom asked Ellen, our 2-year-old, what an octopus says, and she answered, "squeak squeak!" He laughed, but I was puzzled and asked him where she had gotten that idea. He just pointed to the dog's squeaky toy on the floor. The octopus shaped one.
And dh has been, well, dh. I asked him several times this week to please get the carseats installed this weekend, and every time he said OK. Now suddenly today he informed me that they don't need to be installed until after they are born
. Uh, excuse me? Remember our last birth when I was mobbed by hospital staff the morning after the birth and you were home SLEEPING?!?! Remember how I said I need you with me this time?!?! So now you are planning to be downstairs installing car seats instead? ARGH!!!
I kinda pulled the I am 21938712046 weeks pg and so what I say goes card, though I was a little
nicer than that about it.
Men. Can't live with 'em, can't leave 'em by the side of the road.
