Okay, I thought it was about time for a new thread but I'm still going to respond to stuff from the last one.
mainemama- I feel for you. We are in the midst of a total renovation of our house and it blows. We are still trying to fit in finishing the bathroom and getting some new windows (among other things) in here before the baby is born and I'm honestly dreading the bathroom fix the most. Even though our bathroom set up has been pretty Macgyvered together since we moved in it is still better that the impending no tub and no toilet that is inevitable when we actually start the finishing process.
serafina- that hospital hotel setup sounds pretty sweet. I wish we had an option like that. One of the saddest parts to me of going to the hospital this time is that the recovery rooms have twin beds. I loved being able to cuddle with my husband and newborn last time in the queen sized bed at the birth center. Now I'm just hoping this baby comes at a time of day that allows us to not spend the night after the birth in the hospital. Our hospital appears to be okay with early discharge but not as early as yours seems to be.
We found out that my niece's husband apparently left a few months ago and she had just kept it secret until now. She's a really strong woman and I feel pretty confident that she'll come out of this stronger. Apparently he still did childbirth classes with her and will be her support person for the birth. Not that that makes him any less of a dirt bag. Its just so hard to see someone you love in such a crappy situation.
Anyway, anybody else having trouble with carpal tunnel yet? Mine started while we were on vacation. Fortunately, my hands haven't gotten super painful yet but my fingertips tingle/burn almost all the time.
