Lynann, my ILs were bad about having food around too until they had their first grandchild and they rarely would eat lunch. Now they are better about it with two grandchildren and me always wanting to eat and making DH go get me lunch because I don't skip meals even when not pregnant When I'm pregnant, I have no shame and will dive right into the cabinets and start making stuff and I bring food along too. At least my ILs were never offended when I did these things, but yeah so different from my family where all family events revolve around food to a ridiculous degree the other way!
adventuregirl, I was very busy with work yesterday myself, but today should be quieter. Glad you got some CDs and are feeling better prepared. Glad you have vacation to look forward to
OtherMother, those peanut butter cups sound awesome, I will have to try that recipe when DD is older, for now I keep all peanut stuff out of the house (so I eat it at work instead) as she is allergic, but when she's older will start slowly bringing stuff back in.
AmandaLynnH, yeah, those bottomless pit days can be rough, had many myself this time! I hope your midwife was having an off day, sounds like it is quite possible. Hopefully the baby shower goes ok, good idea on duplicating your list onto Target, I do the same with a crowd like that, but at least my Mom is finally an amazon convert! LOL at pininterest + nesting, I'm staying far away as I think I would get so addicted to pininterest
CoBabyMaker, very good point about the C/S! I haven't talked to him more yet, but I'm hoping our long trip this weekend will give me an opportunity. Glad your appointment went well, sorry you had to wait so long! My OB had only done that to me once and it was with DD, though of course DH was with me for that appointment so he was getting really frustrated. I have the pregnancy nurse line too, they give me more $$ in my HSA for doing the program which is nice and my nurse is pretty hilarious When I told her I was having one BH a day at most she told me that was great as she probably had a BH yesterday herself even though she isn't pregnant. Good for your DH for giving blood, I do that regularly when not pregnant/BFing (not that you can't give while BFing, I just worry about my pumping supply being affected). For short shirts (I'm having this problem with clothes from last pregnancy, everything I bought this time I made sure was long) I'm using long maternity tanks/camis under them to extend life. JCPenney, Motherhood & Target all have really long tanks and/or camis. Bonus that it helps keep warm right now! I am switching to dresses at least some of the time as soon as it warms up.
Going to see my parents and the ILs tomorrow, so that will be nice. We have Friday & Monday off so we can make it is a nice relaxing weekend. Going to see if I can talk to DH some on the trip about someone to watch DD, even just someone for just-in-case scenarios because I do think I would want DH there if I had to have a C/S suddenly or anything like that. Going to pack tomorrow morning as my Mom doesn't get home from work until 4pm, so we don't want to beat her there and it's only a 5 hour trip, though may be longer with me having to stop and pee all the time.
DH was finally getting the itch to be more prepared last night, so he ordered cribs, I'm surprised it took him this long. The ones we got come with toddler rails so you can make it into a toddler bed without buying more stuff. I never thought I would want a toddler bed with DD, but I actually like it, so I'm happy about that feature. He's really wanting the remodeling folks to install our carpet sooner rather than later so we can get things setup, I'm with him there, so we may push for that a bit harder as I think right now they plan to do that all at once with the kitchen. We'll see! Last big thing I need to order is a double stroller, the rest of the stuff I want to get can just be picked up from wherever pretty easily, so I'm not as worried about that stuff.
