Ah, it is finally Thursday! Only one more day to go after today. For whatever reason this has felt like a loooonnnnggg week for me!
Kate, I hope you enjoy your classes! I know with DS it was just nice to meet other to-be parents more than anything and know that all of your fears, etc. are totally normal. I stayed in touch with 2 of the moms through my whole year of mat leave and into the next year (although we've since fallen out of touch) and it was nice to have them to go for walks/coffee etc. with. Also, I am with you on having to remind myself that babies do come early. It's a tough balance. DS came 8 days late and I felt like the last five weeks were a year since I kept telling myself "it could be any day, it could be any day..." So in my mind this time I have until the middle-ish of May, but with a May 2 due date I could just have to the middle-ish of April!! At the same time, I don't want babe to come two weeks late and again feel like the last month is a year long, kwim? And the maternity clothing mystery continues...I did have all my stuff from last time and honestly a lot of it was out of style! So I hope there aren't any pieces you are missing too badly. I hope you had a nice visit!
Co - Wahoo! on the vanity find! That's great. I don't really have any advice to give about the skin on skin. I think if it was me I would mention it to everyone at the hospital and mention it again to the doctor closer to the scheduled C-section date. Hopefully you are right and all he needs is some time. Oh, and UGH to the size comments. I think it is so rude too. And how do they expect you to respond to that? "Ya, I am practically a house this time. Guess I better cut back on the doritos". My mom made a comment weeks back about how I am bigger this time and I just responded with "actually I am measuring bang on for my dates, the same as I did last time". All she could say was "Oh." Good for you for being so polite about it though.
Katie - Good to hear that you don't need to pre-pay at your preferred hospital, but all the insurance stuff that you ladies south of the border have to deal with makes my head spin! Thank-goodness for public health care! We do have insurance for extended benefits like dental, prescription, chiro, massage and the like, but it is all (usually) veerrry straight forward. Cool that you get to see your online buddy! A girl I went to highschool with actually met her DH gaming online, so you can really get to know people well that way it seems! I am not a gamer, and neither is DH (unless you count NHL online with playstation, which I don't think is really "gaming") so I don't know much about that world or culture.
Time, I'm glad you had a nice time with BFs DD. It sounds like you really click with the littles, that's so nice. Kids love it so much when grown-ups make an effort to be interested in what they are. I used to be much better at it, I should work on that. I do hope you and your BF catch a break soon! It seems like you've both had some bad luck lately. And I hope your new belts and exercises help with the SPD.
Bailey, so great that you are feeling better and that the chiro and physio is helping too! Chiro has been a live saver for me this time around.
Amanda, I would be going for a massage weekly if I were you! lol. It's nice that you are getting a shower, I hope that it isn't too awkward for you with DHs family. Oh, and I now want a donut. There is a place in town here that does a bacon donut too. It is really crispy bacon pieces on top of a donut with maple glaze. Yum.
