Very large pepper grinder.... :LOL
H,S, and J --I'm green with envy the three of you got together! I saw the pics on your website -- what fun that must have been! Hi Jesse!
I'm so thrilled to see you so round in the belly!!!! Yay!!!!! I hope the rest of your pregnancy continues to be blissfully uneventful! I'm so happy we're all getting our much-longed-for babes. Now we just have to get Korin, Alexis, and Adina over here, too.
Kimba -- looking forward to your intro. (BTW, I loved the quote from your daughter in you sig!)
: and (((hugs)))) Birthdays are immensely important to me -- I grew up in a family that made a big, lovely deal out of them and I continue the tradition. My dh knows he should treat my bday as a national holiday
. I'm sorry your friends had belated wishes for you!
Lesley -- I was actually very touched by the raw honesty in your post. It is something I've worried about. I LOVE babies, but to be honest, I've never been much of a "kid person" and often wonder if I'll have the patience to constantly play and entertain. Anyway, big hugs to you.
Shannon -- I'm impressed with your ob working with you so well. BTW, my SIL just had a Ceasaren birth after a "failed inducement" and she recovered farily quickly and is doing very well. I know everyone's different, but thought you might like to hear a nice story instead of a scary one.
I'm jealous of you nesting mamas! I've been doing a lot of thinking about nesting, but not the actual nesting. Oh please kick in soon, please kick in soon...
Sooooo, I just came back from my first LLL meeting -- where I met some great women. It was so nice getting support for my planned homebirth instead of "what are you crazy?" It's really a great bunch of like-minded women and I already learned a lot....BUT, for some reason, once I got home I started crying! I guess I'm feeling overwhelmed at all the changes that have already taken place (in my life, my routine, my body, etc) and am anxious about all the continuing changes. Granted they're all beautiful, wonderful changes and I wouldn't want it any other way... but it's still scary. Perhaps I was also a bit scared of the group of loud toddlers that made hearing more than al little difficult. I LOVED the babies...but toddlers and little kids...I don't know how to relate yet. So, yes! I'm SCARED!
I just had some chocolate, so I'm sure I'll feel better soon.
Monica -- yikes! I lost a toenail before a couple of years ago and it freaked me out and grossed me out to no end! I hope yours grows back very soon!
Okay, now that I've vented I should go. Hugs and love all around...
