Crys, that sounds like one obnoxious midwife you've got there! I don't think I'd have the patience to be polite, esp. after that "dehydrated" comment, ACK!! Any chance of finding someone else??
I had a midwife that wasn't nearly that bad for my first pg, and I was thrilled to death when she happened to be out of town when I delivered! Her "back-up midwife" helped me with Ian, and she was infinitely more supportive. I'd worry about not being able to relax enough with a midwife you feel so uncomfortable around
hope that situation can be remedied somehow...
YES, all you negative-9-degree suffering mamas out there, be jealous of us Texans, who can go out in tanktops and flipflops about 50% of the time still!! ok i'll quit bragging now, lol....I just feel SO much cuter with a flowing sarong skirt over my thickening belly instead of icky maternity jeans and a bulky sweater on top!
Well, there's a christmas tree up over here, but it really doesnt feel "christmas-ey" at all. I used to be all organized, handmade presents already completed, cookies to bake, candles everywhere--I even organized a church group to go Caroling one year....but lately, well....bleah. I know i need to just let it go, but it really hurts that my dad won't accept the choices I've made. I'm the only child, my mom and dad are really all I've got in the way of family, and he's choosing to shut me out like this. Sigh.
Well! Other than that, I've been trying to focus on eating better, and trying not to get TOO obsessed about what baby stuff I still need to buy, esp. seeing as I won't have a dime to buy it with until tax return time, LOL. Sometimes we joke that Tax Return Day is the true holiday to look forward to!
Those pics are supercute, Eaglevoice! I love being able to see proof that all of you really do exist outside of my computer screen, HAHAHA
