Congratulations, Carolyn! Hope you're enjoying a milky snuggly babymoon.
I'm 40 + 6 today and still pregnant. I already said I'm planning to be the last one in the DDC to give birth...and I mean it! The flu that was going around from my mom to DH has now caught up to me, so I'm really hoping I have at least a few more days to recover before it's baby time. Being sick while this pregnant sucks, just getting out of bed to pee is a struggle, and I did that about 15 times last night, so sleep isn't really happening either.
I was feeling so ready and so confident and now that I'm sick I'm starting to feel more apprehensive and almost scared that because I'm feeling weak, labor will be that much harder and I will freak out. Now I am consciously trying to delay myself from going into labor until I feel stronger.
This is soooooo not how I expected things would go!
Anyway, it's back to bed for me.
Congratulations to everyone! I guess it's just me and Chap holding out for last place, lol. I have also had a cold the past few days, as well as trying to wrap up a bunch of loose ends and get through my awful court date this past Tuesday (don't ask, i can't talk about it yet) but now as soon as I am feeling a bit better, I will be as ready as i am going to be. I am think Saturday night.... we'll see
so, i've noticed that we have 116 members in our group and have had 61 babies and there are only a couple other mamas waiting for their babies. so where are all the other mamas? do we just have a lot of lurkers or do we have a lot of non-posters that have had their babes but have not posted?
I think that must be the case. I know there are a few that have announced on FB, but not on here, and I'm sure there are some that joined the group and never came back. I wish they all would announce here, because reading about all the babies is honestly my favourite moment of the day. Come on lurking mamas, tell us about your little ones!!!
In my other DDC's I have found as time goes the group gets smaller and smaller. My group from my 6 year olds DDC still talks but there is now a core group of about 15 of us, same with the 3 year olds DDC. I'll be sticking around with whatever ladies continue talking for years to come, but still i wish more of the ladies that joined would share their births and super cute pictures of their babes...b/c they are squishy and I LOVE squishy babes.
