Thanks again everyone! Sorry to hijack the weekly news though :) Very sad house right now - DH's brother is staying with us.. I really should tell u all, she has been horribly sick for the last year and had she survived, would have prob never left the hospital. DH's sisters were planning on quitting their jobs to care for her, so this is a bit of a blessing in the long term. Her prognosis was not good at all. She had already lost an entire leg, half a lung and numerous bones from her shoulders and arms in the past 10 years, and was riddled with new tumors.
I'm assuming the next few months will be consumed with this, and I'll do my best not to harp on too much - she was on her own and her house will prob be sold so there are some awfully sad things coming for DH. Someone asked if we would name out baby after her... she actually couldn't stand me (I know...how could anyone not like me??? lol) so I would rather not... but if it's a girl I bet we do.
But that concern can wait til the 20 week scan! I think it's a boy anyway!
Now - no more talk of this!
My chest has now reached epic proportions and everyone at the ICU knew I was pregnant without me saying a thing - but assuming I was much farther along... which led me to this... I have added 3 weeks to my pregnancy (so I'm now 12 weeks). making my belly girth much more acceptable. Hopefully this will help me avoid what I had with my DS, which was the professional opinion that I was 1. obviously huge for my date, 2. having many babies. 3. Fat (which, sadly, sometimes makes me actually rude haha)
I went 3 weeks over with my son and also had to put up with "haven't you had that baby yet", so this should (in theory) make my life easier in the coming months. I might even whack on more for strangers and be 4 months LOL!! I'm still wearing a belly bloat from IVF in addition to my actual baby bump, so believe me, this is a GREAT idea!
