Am I the only one not stockpiling carriers? I actually have an overflow of them by default...people keep giving them to me! I have neck/back issues and am really worried just about picking up the baby without pulling something, much less the babywearing. It makes me sad cuz I love and agree with the concept but I just know I physically won't be able to do it. I've been given four carriers, all of them very nice and cute and I won't be able to use any of them because they go over one shoulder and those are going to be harder on my neck... anything that pulls just on one side can strain me and keep me up nights in pain. So we registered for the Baby Bjorn with lumbar support, and I think that'll be what I use when I walk the dogs. I saw a woman in the dog park with one and she said (I think?) that I'll be able to use it sooner than three months, which is great. I don't know how I'd walk two big dogs AND a stroller! Other than that, I'm afraid babywearing just isn't in the cards for me.
Becky.... baby's in position, yay!
Lane, I'm getting excited for you! 37 weeks, wow. Your lasagna sounds really yummy. Recipe?
I haven't done any cooking and freezing and I doubt we will... we never cook as it is so I'm not thinking that's gonna change any time soon. Honestly I'm not sure how we feed ourselves!
Jenn, It's so great that you checked in with us. What a beautiful shower gift from your mom... I was teary reading about it too! Hang in there darling, and thanks for saying hi. I've been thinking about ya.
Dee, how do you like the BFW book? I got a lot out of it but skipped all the art (my Bradley teacher said I could
) I'm not much into art therapy type stuff ... strange that I'm not more artistic when I work in "the arts"... but my artistic talent is limited to music! So the art section got skipped... I think that book seems geared towards women who have a lot of fear of birth, or who have had traumatic first births and are hoping for different this time. There's a lot of good info in it though. (I read it during all those performances of Phantom of the Opera!
