Good morning~ I have to say that one thing I'm currently enjoying are the nightly Krazy Hormone Dreams. Last night I had one where I and the other kids at the gymnastics camp I was attending (!?) was buying pot from Sarah Palin, and another where our oddball neighbor (not to be confused with our thieving white-trash neighbors) had brought us tons of baby furniture and put it in the yard and was refusing to take it back. This in itself wasn't so krazy, but the furniture was bizarre, including an antique wrought-iron crib with a special brazier attached to the side where you could build a fire to keep baby warm. Yeah, no hazards there! I've had a few nightmares, which are too horribly realistic, but mostly it's just kinda funny.
Starling~ Excellent advice, and very true that this isn't the last time I'll have to deal with such things. Mom's been trying to talk us out of cloth diapering almost as long as we've been preggo, and continues to send me emails and call and tell me that Sophie is probably the best name for the baby. So yes, being firm!! I'm glad you have a sister who'll be such a good birth partner. I can see how the tennis ball massage would be good too.
Escher~ I did in fact notice our new moderator! I hope I'll be able to behave myself in future.... SO GLAD for you that you heard a strong heartbeat! It's the most reassuring sound. Someone gave us one of those little Doppler thingies, but DP's never able to hear the baby's heart on her own. We just have to rely on the kicking to make sure all's still well.
Imogen~ Yikes about the PTL possibilities! I'm glad you're prepared for everything and that you're taking it easy now. 32 weeks is early, but not TOO early, so I'm sure all will be well. Still, take care of yourself above all things!!!
Okay~ had a lazy day yesterday, must get tidying done today!!! More later xoxoxoxoxo
