Hi! I'm glad to be able to be apart of this. Thank you.
Personally, I still can't believe that there is a baby currently kicking me or something. It didn't take us long to conceive. We were only half trying when it happened. By "half trying", we were just going without birth control and seeing what God had in mind.
As for not getting anything done, well, I'm a housewife and there is too much clutter around. What's scary is that it is
June and we're not only looking for this baby in September, but we're moving in August. Yikes. How did it get to be June already? I guess I was too busy being pregnant. Yikes.
Yeah, I'm a bit worried about money, too. I wouldn't think that Andy spent some of his student loan money wisely, but it has helped me stay home so I guess I can't complain too much, or at all. This baby isn't going to be hurting for anything, though. She has one grandmother happily knitting her things and another grandmother (my mom) who happily scours rummage sales on the weekend looking for baby stuff. (My mom is a rummage sale person to begin with, but looking for stuff for grandchildren, especially a new one, is just way more fun for her. My father good naturedly complains.) My sister has offered to loan me some of her daughter's old stuff. Also, some women at church are going to throw me a shower. Yay. Free stuff. Oh, wait. That's not how I'm supposed to look at it.
I have a doctor's appointment this evening at seven. I'm not sure, but I think this is the one for the diabetes testing. I realized that and put down the Diet 7Up I was drinking. I have many one soda a week. Having one a couple of hours before seeing the doctor may not be a good time. My doctor doesn't know I'm vegan. I've heard enough stories of misinformed doctors on that and it just doesn't seem necessary. Therefore, I'm not worried about the diabetes thing.
I'm about 22 weeks pregnant (by my husband's calculations) and I've gone from a 36C to a 40E. No kidding. Those were the only bras at Motherhood Maternity last week that felt comfortable and fit decently. Yikes. Somebody on another board on which I'm active cautioned me about buying too many bras since I might still grow more. Ugh.
Sometime very soon, I need to look into childbirth classes-- Where they're held (besides the hospital), the different types besides Lamze and the one tht starts with a B that I've seen mentioned in some of the stuff I've read, etc. I also need to look into different birthing methods. I'm really wanting a warm water birth. (Idealy, I think I think I would want a midwife and/or doula at home, but since we're moving, it doesn't seem feasible this time.) Eh. Eve didn't have or need this stuff, why do I? Oh, because I have a very overprotective and caring and loving husband who won't buy that line.
Argh. I've not read all of the posts yet (I'm technically only on page two), but I need to get up. The baby's moving a bit and I think she's uncomfortable. I guess that would make sens, I'm sitting in my chair with my legs cross and slouching and leaning forward. Poor thing. Also, it's time for us to decide what's for supper, and avoid another "I don't know, what do you want?" "If I knew
what I wanted, I wouldn't be asking you," discussion.
