I think that if they are as great as people say, they will be invaluable for the first 5 or 6 months. I tend to just sleep in a sports bra and undies anyway. And being home spring and summer, maybe I can just make them my go to bra.
On another topic...the other night, my husband just said, "I want you to think if you want something special when the baby is born- a special present, food, flowers..." I really appreciate it, wanting to please me, but all I can think of now is...the support you are already going to give will suffice. Has your partner ever asked this? What did you say?
I actually brought up the birth gift as a joke after reading about it on this website. I was like "Oh good news hun, guess what?! I just found out I'm supposed to get a gift after giving birth!" We laughed about it and haven't brought it up since but I wouldn't be surprised if he gets me something anyway. Probably just something small that he knows I like or maybe something I haven't been able to have while pregnant or something like that.
We're trying to decide if getting a 3d ultrasound is worth the money for us. We would love to be able to see the baby again and have some nice pictures (we have a frame someone got us as a gift for an ultrasound picture but don't have a pic for it) but it is kind of expensive. We don't have any medical reason to have another ultrasound so we would just go to this place in Saratoga that does elective ultrasounds. They have several packages and we've been torn between the $99 one that has
- 10 minute 3d/4d ultrasound
- two color and two black and white prints
- gender determination
or the $169 package that has
- 20 minute 3d/4d ultrasound
- three color and three black and white prints
- DVD recording of the session
- gender determination
Idk I feel like the extra 10 minutes might be worth it in case he doesn't cooperate at first and the DVD would be nice but is it worth that much money? We have our tax return coming soon but I would really like to save as much as possible. It's tough though because I feel like I will regret it if I don't get it. Did any of you get one and did you feel like it was worth it?
We are also in the process of registering for gifts for the baby shower and feel completely overwhelmed. There is so much stuff! I feel like most of it I don't know if I'll even need.
Sidenote: This child has decided that it would be fun to kick Mommy in the bladder today. He's been at it all morning. I've tried to get him to change positions but no luck so far. Any tips?
