ciga - Thanks, you made me feel more confident that the wiggles are actually wiggles! :) It happens a lot when I'm driving - I have to sit pretty hunched over since I'm hilariously short and I have to pull the seat up super far to reach the pedals.
slammerkin - my husband is totally the same! Weeks ago, he was poking my stomach, trying to figure out if he could feel it. I had to yell at him and tell him that when I could feel the kid on the outside, I'd let him know! Yeesh. It's our first baby, so he's pretty excited, but his impatience is driving me batty. :P
Intuition is such a funny thing. When my mother was pregnant with my little brother, she told absolutely everyone he was going to be a boy. Everyone. She didn't wait to shop or anything, just bought boy stuff. I remember my great-grandmother saying to my aunt, "For her sake, I sure hope it's a boy, cause I don't know what she's going to do if it isn't." Lo and behold, he was indeed a boy. My dad never doubted her either. Of course, he told everyone I would be a girl, so there you go.
On another topic, I wish I could figure out how to say no to my mother-in-law. She keeps offering baby stuff she has lying around (she's a hoarder, and she has two/soon to be three other grandkids, so she buys stuff for them all the time at yard sales even though they don't live anywhere near her). I appreciate the thought, but I already have some of the things she offers, and when I try to refuse, she argues me or my husband into taking it. Like, I have a Pack N Play with a proper mattress that I got from a great woman on Craigslist. She keeps trying to give me an old quilt that she says "goes on the bottom of the Pack N Play". I keep telling her we already have a mattress and I don't want to add a lot of squishy padding, it's not safe. She'll snap back, "Yeah, but they'll pee on the mattress!" Well, yes. That's why I also have three sets of sheets! Yargh.
I am grateful for some of the things she offers - we got a really nice changing table from her, for example. I think the problem is that she doesn't understand that I'm just as good at thrift shopping as her, and that I've been stocking up already. She might be getting great deals, but so am I! Her other daughter in law won't take absolutely anything used (she's impressively snobby), so I think she expects to have to persuade me too. Not necessary - I'm A-ok with used! I just don't want doubles of stuff. Lol.
Sigh. Sometimes, it's easier to just take the thing and drop it off at the Goodwill two towns away. I do love her, but man, she's frustrating.
