Had my first shower today...talk about pain and one of the hostesses who's an OB nurse telling me about ordering drugs, and then they were asking the mothers in the church if they had hbs and the oldest mother did and I said, "Well, now that Mother Whitaker opened the door, I'm having a hb." It was the quietest it had been the entire shower! :LOL They were asking questions and the other mother who was a nurse ask about episiotomies b/c her daughter tore all the way to her rectum with one. I told her that they don't do them routine. Then they were all like going nuts b/c of no meds and the mother who had the hbs said it *could* be done! :LOL
And then there was a question about organics and I explained. One of our ministers, who is
and also a nurse said that I can't have my child walk around with a mask.
She was blown away by the fact that I prefer organic cotton and hemp and told dh he needed a second job. Small town minds.
Even tho they haven't heard of it its weird. I mean no harm to small towns; but, don't judge me!
Well, mama still doesn't know about the hb. She mad me
when I mentioned I was up with reflux. She told me I ate somethign I had no business eating or I laid down on something. I told her my stomach is at my breasts! She said she didn't have it when she was pg. I told her pregnancies are different. You'd think she'd realize that!
I wanted to tell her fyi, I'm having a hb; but, I thought that wouldn't be nice and she *has* had a heart attack. :LOL
btw, one of the *other* mothers of the church said that she had two at home. She said don't think about and I could do it and that it hurts no less than in the hosp.
She really affirmed me before I left. I heard some comments like hb is coming back....I told them the stats on hb as far as how many are doing it...it could have been worse. They all replied.
to the liability thing in hosp, which is why I decided against it yall know b/c they wouldn't let me have a wb. The minister/nurse who's pg was like why would I do this my first baby...and she was practically debating me about routine u/s.
I'm not a debater. Saved by the cake cutting. She was asking about positioning of the baby through seeing on u/s. I told her that they found that information by palpitation.
I don't mind questions at all! I was a teacher; but, not with judgement and just because *your* doc does it doesn't make it right! Anyway! I'm surprised I didn't get a whole lot of bottles and sposies. Apparently, they aren't familiar with registries?
*Some* of them! I got a travel bottle warmer...
: and I didn't get any sposies!
That's a common gift at our showers.
Anyway, I'm beat. Having a little time in the room with the seat with the hole myself.
Gotta love wireless! :LOL
