Seraf - Any news? My money is still on you going first. I LOVE the pics of your Halloween costumes. Your whole family always looks like you are all having a great time!
Library - LOVE the weaning story. I read it to DP and she couldn’t stop giggling. And hoping that you had fun showing Alice off a bit tonight. We don’t get a lot of trick or treaters so I love when the neighbors bring their kids by. I have to admit I freaked a little when I opened the “What to Expect” app on my phone and the countdown said “1 day to go!” Eeeek!
AHope - We chose the hospital specifically because a local practice of midwives have privileges and they’ve been able to lobby the hospital for great amenities. The plan is the labor at home with the help of our doula as long as possible before heading out and she seems to have her own bag of tricks. She is generally really comfortable in her body but has taken to walking around declaring, “I’m huge!” which amuses me because I think I’m still bigger than her. Your Halloween party sounds like lots of fun! And I love the combo of big kid/little kid fun by dancing and carving pumpkins. Sounds like you guys had a wonderful evening!
Isa – How are ya? Found a renter yet?
Julie – You sound so very calm despite the feeding challenges you’re having. I know it’s can’t have been easy, but I love that you are able to stay focused on the important stuff like bonding. What a lucky little girl R is to have you as her mama.
KS – Woah - that’s quite a bump! Despite your possible stomach virus, you look amazing and healthy! Hoping that the extreme nausea is temporary. I’m so so excited to hear about your US tomorrow. My friend from Philadelphia just had twin girls vaginally and had a very good experience.
Starling – sorry to hear H is gassy. I can’t believe that little cutie is month already!
Qmama – Hi!! Hoping all is well with you! What are you up to now?
Escher - Love that you are having such a wonderful time with your son! Much love to you and DP - it definitely sounds like you are making the most of your babymoon!
Sara – good to hear from you!
As for us – all is quiet here. DP freaked out a bit tonight and started some kind of cleaning frenzy. She still hasn’t felt a single contraction or sign of labor and the due date is tomorrow. She’s feeling like she hopes that she makes it to the weekend and that we can just relax in the clean house, watch movies and go for walks before the craziness of labor and actually having a newborn starts.
We cheated a bit this week on the “no baby stuff” because we found a really cute onesie with a pumpkin on it and we’ve been calling the baby “pumpkin” since before she was even conceived. It’s a total coincidence that she is due the day after Halloween.
Hope all is well with you ladies!
