Thanks for the input on the Baby Wrap. And thank you for the link, Julie. Yes, I was talking about the African version. I really want a sling that is very comforatable for both me and babe. With the Nojo, I felt that I couldn't get it tight enough around me. The ring also kept digging into my shoulder. I remember dh telling me a few times that Jared never really looked comfortable in it. (It could just be that I never truley found a good way to wear it.) I'll keep researching before I commit to one.
As for the co-sleeping, I'll talk with him about using the cirb as a side-car for the new baby. As I mentioned before, I just don't feel right kicking Jared out of our bed. He's an easy-going child, but I don't want to take advantage of that. Or risk him resenting the new bean.
Don't even get me talking about stretch marks. I have so many from preg.#1, and now have even more with this one. And that's even with applying moisturizers and other oils that supposedly help prevent the mark. As my first mw told me, it's mostly based on genetics. I guess she's right.
Those pregnancy photos are awesome! Those professional shots are so beautifully done! Simply beautiful!
Rynna - congrats on the new minivan! May you always travel in safety!
Taking a shower....boy am I looking forward to cleaning under my belly with ease after delivery! And drying off! Also, when I bend over to wash the feet and legs, I get a little lightheaded since I can't breath all that well in that position. Woohoo!
Today my mom asked me to talk to my dad out of taking her to going on a "day" trip to Md to visit by brother. My bro lives 4 hrs away from my parents, and at LEAST 6 hrs away from me. (And not to mention that this is the holiday weekend!) Both my mom and me are concerned that if I go into labor tomorrow, she probably wouldn't make it in time for the birth. (Dad doesn't want to be there, and that's fine with me!) He wasn't too happy about it, but I let him think that letting my mom stay home was his
Just so you understand, he hardly ever asks for input, and assumes that everyone will just do as he plans, even if it inconviences everyone else. He's a very insecure man, and I think that's why he does that.
Hey, does anyone sometimes hear a "popping" sound every so often in the uterus area? I hear 2 "little" ones in the past hour. I don't think its gas, but I'm willing to be wrong. I guess I really want to meet my new baby this weekend!
Anyway, I should go and get some sleep!
