Ram - Ouch! Sorry for the hip and back pain. :(
I'm really just here to check on Val. We have fairy dust for conception, sticky for getting through the first tri, what's for quick, easy, healthy labor? I'm going to re-purpose the vibes one for a great labor.
Hey Val, we're thinking of you, and hoping Jacob comes (or is here) without fuss or complication!
Dh is a pain to get gifts for, so I'm not sure if I could give him like a physical gift. I think he'd do better with a congratulations to us gift and then a nice card that I can write something special in. I'm thinking of checking out our local bakery and seeing about getting a small cake or something edible. Since we're not close to any family we won't be getting a cake from anyone else so I think that's what I'll do as a surprise.
And I finally got my ultrasound and it's a BOY!!!
Birdie: I'm sorry about the bedrest, that's really unfortunate. Other possibilities are maybe audio books, and even just reading. I got Grapes of Wrath out of the library on cassette for my husband to listen to while he's working by himself (while I do the light duty tasks inside) and he's really enjoying that. It was a bit hard to find a walkman, though. Anyway, you can probably find some of the great classics that you've always wanted to read but never found time for. I recommend The Brothers Karamazov for something to take up a lot of time while remaining interesting. I'm sure you've thought of books, but if I were you I would want to do as many different things as possible, I think, to break up the time into smaller chunks. I hope it passes quicker than you thought possible.
Ram: I'm glad you got your ultrasound! Congratulations on your boy. Did you enjoy the u/s? I liked it, it was really interesting.
Val: I'm hoping radio silence means baby has arrived and you're taking a few days to babymoon. I've been thinking of you and Jacob and your husband and hoping it's all going smoothly!
The ultrasound was fun Hykue. He was stuffed in their so we didn't get any full baby shots, but you could see everything really clear. It was very freaky to see all the ribs and heart chambers and everything.
Rosie, we've narrowed it down to three names and are just going to keep thinking about those until we make a final decision. We started with 6 names we both liked and then each picked our favorite 2 (we both picked one name so only have three). The names are Brody, Brennan, and Desmond.
Stopping by to say I am thinking of Val and hope she is doing well and has her little one in arms.
Also thinking about Birdie. I hope you are surviving bed rest! That would drive me crazy.
Ram yay for a boy! We didn't get any full body shots either but that is because they didnt give us any. I don't know why and didn't even think about it because I was too excited/overwhelmed until afterwards.
I am officially full term tomorrow! Not like that means anything. Baby is still super high up under my ribs andnothing is happened yet. I am going to start RRL tea and other natural methods though. It can't hurt.
