PART II (post-nap)
Ok - just tried catching up with you guys...we are
a bunch of chatty cathies! Will try to remember - just woke up from a nap, and well, of course, pregnancy brain...!
Shannon - glad Molly is doing so much better, and ouch!, but glad the kidney stone has passed. onwards and upwards? please?
Peri - wow!! tomorrow you meet your baby! I'll be thinking of you!PART II (post-supper)
Oh wow, Monica - what a wretched shower situation! How hurtful indeed...
Hope you manage to trade most of it for some good stuff.
Hang in there, Joy! Crappy that you still have to be thinking of work this week...
Free Thinker - my prenatal instructor said that it's a choice - basically, the alcohol has been shown to keep the stump too clean, which slows down the rotting off...it will stink, but as long as there's no signs of infection, it's supposed to be ok, and just washing it with water is supposed to be sufficient.
Traci - hope you enjoyed your afternoon! I have been LOVING my afternoon naps!
Lesley - wonderful new pictures of Hazel, thanks for sharing! She is filling out!
I had meant to give you extra hugs on her due date yesterday --- belated
whew - hope I caught everyone! I probably haven't gone back far enough - sorry if I missed anyone's news!
So yesterday was my u/s, since last week, both mws had difficulty saying 100% what the baby's position was. And yay - baby is still head down, and anterior!! (actually just slightly posterior yesterday, anterior today). I will post a pic once we get our scanner reconnected (new system at home). They also had a check done of my amniotic fluid, since it seemed to be excessive, but it's perfectly within the normal range. AND today, my GBS test results were in - negative, whew!!!
And on the shower front - there were a few more twists and turns, too painful to mention
(poor Shannon got it all via email), but all's well that ends well. SIL was, of course, commended for her thoughtfulness in throwing me a party, but got a talking to from dh for pushing through what she and the others thought I needed as opposed to what I said I needed, causing herself needless frustration. Over the wknd, she returned the gift they had purchased (and already wrapped!) for the Britax Marathon I had registered for (and I think dh is making up any $ difference). So good on her, she did that, and hopefully she will be over her snit come this weekend...so now the next step - for me to have to act surprised...
Have I mentioned how stoooopid I think it is that this thing had to be a surprise?! I teased dh that I might be a difficult guest of honour for him (he has to get me to SIL's for Sat. aft) and tell him I have made other plans...
