biglaugh.gifThat's too funny!!  I can just imagine what he was thinking when you nonchalantly mentioned getting "treated"!  Hahahaha!!

i also said, "why would i tell you that if i did have a STD. oops, i forgot i'm talking to my DH instead of my BF." silly, silly man

jj ~ i agree with carrie that you are not obligated to give that woman anything you need or want for your own baby. only give her things you don't need back. especially with someone who has such an unstable life, i wouldn't expect to get anything back. what happens if her BF shows back up and steals all of your stuff, too?

Thanks guys. It's hard, because I have such a bleeding heart, and I want to give her things, but I also feel selfish because I don't want to give up things for -our- baby and risk them not coming back. I ended up giving her a stash of sheets and bedding that I had been trying to sell (though with no luck, so bonus that they're out of our house), a bottle warmer (ditto), the high chair (which we only paid $10 for), and a bath seat (you know, the illegal ones, with the suction cups on the bottom) that we got for free. I told her I want the high chair and the bath seat back by April, but even if they're not, it's not the end of the world. I found out a bit more about her living situation, and it looks like she's staying here in the city, living with her grandmother. Her ex is three provinces away, so there's not much fear of him taking the things, just hoping that when we get them back, they're in the same condition as when I gave them to her. 

 

I got a peek at what all my sister bought and feel even worse for her though. She bought a crib, a mattress, a crib bedding set, a mobile, as well as three shopping bags of misc food, formula, washclothes, some clothes, etc. So probably close to $300. That's a lot for my sister. Hopefully she'll get the crib and stuff back when it's time for her to have children (a couple years down the road still yet). 

 

In good news-- look at how cute the closet looks with all baby girl's stuff sorted out--

Between the hanging, and the stuff in the bins, that's all her stuff up to the 3+M stage. The rest of it will fit into rubbermaids in the bottom of the closet until it's time for use. I just have to clear the rest of the crap out of the closet so that I can also put in the blankets, the diapers, and the bins of misc socks/hats/bibs and bath type stuff. It's making me anxious now to get the room cleared out and 'set up', which is silly because right now if I cleared it out, the only thing I would have would be the crib to set up. The only other things to go into the room at a shelf DH hasn't built yet, and a glider, footstool, and a table for beside it-- which we also don't have yet. No point in the room being empty when we need the space!

Why are those baby baths illegal? I have one with suction cups on it.

oh, not a bath that you fill with water, but the ones that are just a seat, and you put into the big bathtub with the holes for the legs... those ones are illegal due to drowning concerns... all because some stupid parents can't get the whole "watch your baby while in the bathtub" thing through their heads. 

 

Doozy of the day... I was at my sister's bday party today, and made the comment "It's crazy how much she's moved this week. All of a sudden my uterus is sitting so much higher up, and my stomach and lungs feel crowded." My aunt right away jumped in with "OH! baby dropped! Early labor!! Early labor!!"  I should add she's a retired nurse. I just kind of looked at her dumbfounded and said "mmm no, actually the baby is sitting higher... since you know, my stomach is higher than my uterus..." And I mean besides... the baby dropping at 30ish weeks (she doesn't know how far along I am, just that I'm due sometime in December) does not mean labor is coming anytime soon!

 

This again sums up the reasons for not telling people the due date. Why does everyone always seem to excited and insistent that a baby will come early? I hate that because of the amount of inductions, the world has it in their head that the due date is an expiry, and like somehow you should/ it's better to have the baby out before then. 

 

You can see the baby seat I'm talking about in this photo- on the right hand side, there's the one that is the full bath, and then the one that is sitting inside the bath that is all blue-- that's the one I'm talking about. I didn't give her our actual bath, both because we'll need it sooner, and I think her baby should be too big for it by now.

JJ looks like you are having fun!

If anyone is awake, send some labor vibes my way: I've been having some decent contractions for probably about 3 hours on and off. But more regular this last hour. Hoping this is it! Either way, I will keep y'all posted.

hey, no fair! the one night i decide to go to bed really early something is happening! don't you people know you can't do that without my knowledge?

kat ~ sending you ELVs (now that i know what that means). oooooh, i hope this is it. we're ready for another baby in this group. it's been awhile.

hmmmm...last post 12:47 am. it's now 9:30 am with no update. winky.gif

JJ ~ you had me worried still about the bath thingies b/c i have a seat, too, that i can't wait to use. it makes bath time so easy b/c i can put baby in the shower with me once he's sitting up. it's not like the one you have there, though.the one i have is much thicker, has much smaller leg holes and thicker partitions or sides.

here it is: http://www.amazon.com/Safety-1st-Tubside-Bath-Seat/dp/B0000D9SR8 do you think that one is ok? obviously, i would be right there with D whether giving him a bath or having him in the shower with me. plus, i haven't been able to keep K out of the tub while bathing D. lol.gif

need some more! I went to bed to rest and they have kind of petered out. still get something once in a while, but they aren't regular like they were. Went for a walk this morning (already, I know!) and all it did I think was make me a bit crampy. So, I'm working for now and trying to think what I can do help things along a bit . . .

 

Hasn't helped that DS has been majorly clingy the last 12 hours either.

 

How was everyone's weekend?

Oh man!  C'mon Norah!!  Mama is soooo ready to meet you!  I think that once you rest a bit more, Kat, something will happen.  It can't be much longer now!!
