stitches: poor kitty! hope you figure out whats going on.. sorry you have to deal with that.. yuck. i have had cats who pee and poop around the house and i cant stand it.
LadyCatherine185: that's great news! it is always nice to have support and positive energy around when planning a birth.
have a good house day. im doing that as well.
ocelotmom: i was thinking about getting a stock tank for a pool.. they are definitely less expensive than a pool of the same size. i have heard of them being used as birth pools as well.. thinking on that too. we used a blow up 3 ring fishie pool for all of our babies (well only actually used it for 2) and it was great, but having a bit more structure would be good I think.
last night i had a kiddie pool bath with my kids. it was thundering outside and not that warm, but we still have no bathtub so i have to make do. it was kind of fun till the water got cold
i sure couldn't get away with not looking pregnant now.. its completely obvious.. some people still haven't said anything to me about it which is fine with me.. i think that the fact its baby #4 for us is a bit odd for some people, especially ones who dont have kids or only have one. im loving being pregnant and bit right now though.. so whatever. they can take their negative or whatever energy with them!
bobbi, great finds and happy birthday again! your strawberry pie sounds divine. YUM!
im so totally nesty too. i just sorted through a few bags of baby clothes, taking out anything newborn-3 months and then packing up the rest for storage.. my mom is bringing the babies changing table on Thursday so i will set that up with some baby things so i can dream about 4 months from now :P in reality it feels like soo long but these months have been flying by so i know that October will be here soon enough.
I had an amazing weekend with a group of woman doing some wonderful healing and spiritual work. i feel so blessed to be a part of this circle and feel like a different person coming home. i left my dp for two days (not overnight) and he did such an amazing job with the three kiddos, which isn't always easy even for us both some days. im very thankful to him.
i feel like i can really be in the present to complete what tasks need focus and I feel just so full of love. its great. i had some serious belly love too which is always good
so, my SIL is due to have a baby anyday..im sending her lots of love and peaceful baby birthing energy. we have had some ptretty rough times in the past and i feel really sad about it. part of my weekend i just focused on how we could heal that between us. it seems so crazy that in a world like the one we live in that is so full of hardship and fighting that we can still quarrel even within our own families.. its really just so heartbreaking. im going to try to reconcile with her because i think its time..i dont want her to have a baby and be feeling upset about anything. the earth needs our love and positive energy..we dont have time for fighting.. im not sure what the outcome will be.. but please send me some positive energy!
how does everyone feel about their kids going away? my mom has offered to take my 2 eldest away for 2 weeks and i love my mom and trust her but i have always been hesitant to let my kids go away from me.. she lives 10 hours drive away which is a long trip! and i just love my little ones so much..and im protective! my dp feels the same way..but 2 weeks would give us some major time to get the house done, get all settled and unpacked, go do some fun stuff just us (and our 2 year old) it seems like a pretty great opportunity.. im unsure though....
