Do we have a chat thread this week? I could sure use one! - Page 5

Snowflake, what is "pass the parcel"? I've never heard of that before. I'm glad that the party was (mostly) a success!

 

I'm doing kind of nothing so far. I started cleaning and organizing my room a little bit, but I feel like I can't do it all the way until I get some cute storage boxes to put things away in, instead of just stacking stuff all over the shelves. My room is also my "office" and study area so I try to keep it neat so I can sleep and not feel like I'm sleeping in an office. Of course, right now I can't even see my desk...

 

I also bought a new-to-me stroller and carseat combo yesterday afternoon so I've spent part of my day today washing the removable parts in the washer. That stuff is outside in the sun, drying and having any lingering germs killed by the lovely rays of the sun. :)  Next I'll be tackling the plastic pieces of the carseat and getting them all cleaned out and off and vacuuming the stroller out and wiping it down. That is my first major big item purchase for this baby and it made it feel SO real! Of course, a big chunk of my closet is now taken up with the stroller. lol

 

Okay... I'm off to put all the books back on the bookshelf now. I had to take stuff off to move it and there are now stacks of books and stuff all over my bedroom floor. Gah!

I have been hitting it big with the deals lately.  I just got 8 unused newborn and 6 barely used size small G=diapers and liners for 25.00! And yes, that is for all!

I just finished my DONA doula training over the weekend. As a visibly pregnant woman in a room full of 40 doulas-to-be, I felt like a unicorn. The only disappointment was that I'd been hoping to meet someone in the class that I connected with and would be willing to doula my birth as one of their required births for DONA certification, and I met lots of lovely folks, but not really anyone who shared my outlook on reproductive health.

 

Is anyone else starting to feel kind of "tight" in the belly? I'm starting to think there isn't enough room in there for baby, stomach, lungs, and bladder.

Awesome! Being a doula is really great! You'll find a great doula, no worries :)
