I am glad everything turned out ok meander!
I know Birdie it is still crazy to me how fast we are all moving along. I am almost 20 weeks! Things seemed to go so slow before but now I feel like it is speeding up. I feel like I need to be ready like right now! I am not really into gender specific stuff but I am going to wait until I find out to buy stuff I know I won't recieve as a gift. We are sort of tight on money so it feels better to buy stuff gradually rather than wait until just before the baby is born to buy everything we need or have to buy stuff when we are taking time off work. We will have some savings and I have a small short term disability but I know I will still stress about it.
I am turning into a lurker. I read everyday but don't post so I guess I gotta start updating. I have been having back issues. I don't remember if I mentioned that here before. I started going to the chiro and it is doing some good but I am still in pain. It is really a pita because I have to do some lifting and bending at my job and that is what makes it worse! My big u/s is next monday. I am hoping the babe will let us take a peek of what is down under! My mom will also be visiting at that time so I am excited for her to be able to be there too. We are really close. I still haven't decided whether I want to go in with just my partner first and then let her come in to see after we find out or if I want her to be there for the whole time. My partner never really has any opinions on this stuff so it is harder for me to make a decision.
I am also getting a new car this week hopefully because there is no way we can fit the baby in our ford ranger. It sucks because I just got that truck and it is in perfect condition and we got a really good deal on it with extremely low milage even though it is used. I have a feeling it is going to be hard to trade it in for something of actual equal value and I really don't want to go through the trouble of a private sale.
Hey to everyone else I didn't mention. I hope everyone is feeling good!
