What are you top 3 must have baby items? A nice woven wrap, boobs, and.... I guess a bouncy seat. Really, I'm such a minimalist when it comes to products because none of mine really needed/enjoyed being too far from me early on, lol.
How many bedrooms do you want in the house you are hoping to have soon? I'm hoping for 4... but will settle for 3 if there's a finished basement. :)
What are your favorite go to recipes to feed a large crowd? My crowd likes Shepherd's Pie (ground beef, creamed corn, mashed potatoes, cheddar cheese) Beef Stew is another favorite here.
Do you have to do all the cooking right now? (Sorry, really curious about that one. LOL) No... my grandfather is actually cooking more than I am lately. It's actually something of a blessing right now because in the first tri I'm not very motivated to cook at all, lol.
Have you had your first check yet? If not, when is it scheduled? Or do you even plan to have any ultrasounds along the way? No. I haven't had my first check, nor do I have one scheduled yet. I'm not really sure which doctor to go with... or if I should see the one midwife in my area. I'm kind of at a loss right now in regards to what direction I want to go in terms of care. The reason, I think, I'm worrying is because 2 years ago I got pregnant around the same time (was due late july/early aug)... I wound up telling my family who all responded poorly and then I miscarried. I have a HUGE amount of fear of telling just to have the same thing happen... If I go with a doctor we'll probably have at least one u/s. I plan on hopefully getting my doppler back from a friend soon so I can search around for signs of life.
Have all of your births been full term and/or vaginal? Hospital, home? Full term all them. 1. 42 weeks/induction/vaginal delivery 2. 41w3d induction/vaginal delivery 3. 41 weeks induction/vaginal delivery 4. 42 weeks (my count, 44 weeks traditional counting) induction/vaginal delivery 5. 41 weeks natural labor/vaginal delivery with vacuum after I transferred to the hospital. All were delivered in hospital... I would love a homebirth, but I'm really not sure it's in my cards.
