JustChianti, so great to hear that your little one did well at the cardiologist and you can go ahead with your homebirth. What a great midwife!
Rebecca, thanks for weighing in on the cosleeper. I hope the week is going well for your daughter at school.
Boots, thank you too. We nabbed ours at our neighbors’ yard sale for 25 and it is complete, so I think we lucked out. We am going to buy a new mattress for it though, because it was stained.
NewMum, happy anniversary! You are so amazingly close to meeting your little one! I can’t believe that oven story. So far dh has bumped my bump on accident and was mortified.
LeAnn, I hope that the housing choice and move in go well!
Lily, sounds like your body is gearing up for something. I had some menstrual-like aches last week, but they seem to be gone.That sucks about the breast pump and insurance. I actually called back and insisted with my insurance, but mine was adamant that pumps are not insured. Those are the shades I was looking at, but it is going to be super expensive to replace the entire house that way.
Ninetales, I am so sorry you are dealing with the worries about your baby’s size. I have a feeling my boy may be a little big, but this is just based on my higher-range weight gain so far and dh’s family history, but I’ve had no scan since 19w so no real way to tell, in truth.
To those who have commented: the Ameda purely yours is the pump that I'm considering, too, so it's great to hear that several of you are considering it and/or had a good experience with it.
AFM, no more insomnia yet. Baby care classes went well and today we got to meet the new ob who will be seeing me though the rest of my pregnancy. It was a good experience, thank goodness! The ob met with me and dh throughout the visit instead of having the nurse do the routine questions and such.
My bp was higher than normal (because of nerves and stress with the situation/visit?), but still in an ok range. I had the gbs swab and she did not bring up the NST that my other ob had wanted me to do now for the rest of my pregnancy (for my AMA), which I am totally fine with.
The funniest thing: Dh asked her about the baby’s position and she palpated me (head down! as I thought), but he was horrified watching it. That makes me wonder how he’s going to be on the big day...
