Skinnylove: It frustrates me so much when I hear stories like this! I have a friend who's homebirth midwife pressured her into birthing at the hospital bc she thought the baby was going to be super small and need help and my friend had a 7lb+ baby (friend and her husband are both super small boned and thin). I would be so pissed if I lost the birth I wanted over someone's conjecture. My midwife who delivered my daughter told me TONS of stories of big babies she delivered naturally at the birth center or at home and their mamas didn't even have a tiny tear! If you aren't happy with your care provider, definitely look for another! It's your body and your baby and your birth!
Pregnova: Yay for being moved!!!! I'm so happy you can relax now. And I have the same issue with a lot of my shirts. I have been wearing pants and skirts mostly under my belly, not the major over the belly ones - so when the shirt is too short, I'm totally showing skin. I think they were made crappy bc they should last a lot longer! Not all my shirts are like that though, thankfully. But I suppose you could always do dresses.
Undertheoak: That sounds so horrible to be stuck there unable to move! I hope you can get into the chiro and get some lasting relief!! I also hope you can find a provider you are happy with. I'm sure that is stressful at this point to not know.
Amanda: Yay for paying off extra bills!
Sillymom: So glad the natural calm is helping. I feel like I sleep much deeper when I remember to take my magnesium before bed.
AFM: My 13 houseguests just left!! I survived! LOL. It wasn't bad. My 3 yr old had SOOO much fun playing with her cousins. She totally cried when they left. They didn't leave the house a shambles. Of course it's not up to my standards so I am spending all my energy cleaning today - but they actually left it in better condition than say 2 house guests might. The house seems so empty and peaceful now. They're generally well behaved but 11 kids do increase the volume level and they brought a ton of stuff with them - so there wasn't a lot of space to walk or work in the kitchen or sit.
Now I just have to survive my bedroom closet being ripped open next week so a leak can be fixed and mold remediation done. I'm freaked they are going to find some major leak and it'll cost us a fortune! But once that is complete, there are no more big visits or events - just time to hunker down and mentally prepare for baby! :-)
