I love the dressers. I totally would have bought them too!
Today I talked to a friend who is due 6 weeks after me and seeing the same midwife team. She said that one of the MWs on the team has just gone on maternity leave and they called her to change all of her appointments. She's there at 6 pm some weeks, and 8:30 am other weeks. I haven't gotten the call yet, so either I'm really lucky, they really like me, or they have the wrong # on file. I'm hoping nothing changes, as I always see the same midwife at my appointments, who was with me at my first son's birth and is my best friend's aunt (maybe that's why they aren't messing with my appointments.) My next appointment is in 1 week, and then I'm up to every 2 weeks after that. I HATE going that often!
I hear you all on the tired thing. I seriously would happily just sit on the couch and do nothing all day. It has been good for my knitting obsession, but not good for my two littles, who are feeling a little neglected.
Hearing all your work trials makes me grateful not to be worrying about that at all. I totally remember the feeling was pregnant with my first. I hope everything works out!
I don't know if it's because this is my third, or what, but we have been so lazy about preparations. I have been doing Hypnobabies (thanks to Tulafina!) but that's it. I haven't gone through baby clothes, haven't worried about my birth kit, we haven't even really talked names. We have a girl first name, but not a middle name and no boy names at all. This baby is going to be named after it is born, for sure.
Speaking of Hypnobabies, I'm enjoying it, but wondering if I'm really getting it. I certainly don't feel I'm a star pupil or anything. I can always open my eyes when she says to test them, and the whole light switch thing is not making me feel deep in hypnosis. I'm sticking too it though, hoping it will all come together for the easy, fast, comfortable "birthing time."
