Just to clear up the confusion, it isn't *my* birthday (that was in Dec) it's Mike's! So -- HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY BELOVED!!!!!
It's been a lovely birthday so far -- when I went in to bed last night he says, "It's been my birthday for eleven minutes..." and we had his birthday talk (that's where we go over the highlights of one's birthday; it's our birthday/ anniversary ritual) and he said the sweetest thing: "What stands out for me this year is how much you love me," and then went on and on about it, how he feels I love him more than he ever thought anyone ever would...
That was nice to hear!
Then I figured it was time to break out his sexy birthday present
A cute little red teddy with a thong that has flames on the front and says, "I'm on fire" on the back!!!! Tres cute, and it is symbolic, cause he often sings me that song, "Lady in Red" which always makes me wish I had more red in my closet!
Anyway... tonight I have more planned
Tara -- you're OK! Getting wasted one day isn't the end of the world! (And I agree with Shannon's OB-GYN based on the research I've heard).
Pamela and Karen
May you both have a full nine months of
Dani -- hmmmm... well, if your m/w needed to bring you into the hospital, couldn't she stay with you in a doula capacity? Have you talked to the m/w about it and asked how this is normally handled?
Sarah - in terms of your possible emotional backlash - give yourself space to feel what you're feeling now, and not worry about what you might feel later... deal with it moment to moment, if you can.
From my POV, I don't know that I could have gone back to work the day after. Looking back, I wish I had allowed myself to heal more before continuing my social life. I was an emotional/ hormonal wreak for a few weeks...
Hope you are having fun with the showbiz life at least...
to those rebooting,
: to those waiting to test and
to you all!
