Sorry to be so quiet lately. But will try to take a moment to update everybody!
Angel - That pic of Ari is so precious, there is the second one right above it, but for some reason, you have to click on it separately, it didnt just automatically appear on the page like the second one did. Stinks that you have to go back to work so soon because your replacement isnt working out for you. But at least you know you are needed and wanted!
I have been talking to one of my co-workers (really one of the only ones I get along with and consider a true friend), and we both agree she is going to get stuck with most of my work-load, since the two new people they hired are not really working out. And I dont trust my work load to them, since I have been here the longest, I get the biggest jobs! Guess we will see how it goes!
Kissyten - Zach spam is so cute! Love the pics of him. ADORABLE! I am a big fan of disposable everything!
Guess I just appreciate the convience.
So for both you and Angel - I will let both you guys in on a big secret (I learned the hard way). Be as natural as you can. For example, if you do things during the day, like vacuum and whatever, dont stop just because the baby is napping. He listened to it while in your stomach, he will be more comfortable with the noise during nap time than not. At night time, the majority of us have absolute silence... therefore, it is easier to continue this natural habit when they are born. My son was really grumpy during the day and I would literally lay him in the crib and run the vacuum, not only did he fall asleep, but my floors got clean... he also hated noise at night, so if something was going on at night, it would bother him. My daughter was the opposite. I worked in an office all day, (which I do now) and at night I bartended (which was noisy), so for her, she liked quiet during the day and noise at night. Just a thought for you two to try out.
Sylvia - OMG you are so CLOSE!!!!!!! I can't wait for updates. And I am all about a facebook page! I know, when my two were due, I walked a lot. My son, born on his due date, they did a stripping of the membranes the day before his due date, I dont know if that really put me into labor, or if I was naturally going into labor that night anyway, but needless to say, I had my son on his due date!
My daughter was induced on her due date... I crack up because everyone here is betting I will deliver mid-March... And I giggle, because I am not prone to going early, but either on time or they dont really wanna come out! I might be ready, doesnt mean they are!
Get your bag packed! And tell DH to stay outta the nursery. He doesnt get a say this late in the game!
Blaire - If you are feeling most the movement (kicking) at the top, baby is most likely in the head down position, but do not be alarmed if baby moves on you. I find mine is normally in the head down position, but every now and then, he changes.
I love picking out the different body parts that he sticks out. Definitely been able to feel the bum and the heels!
Roni - take it easy girl! Cant wait to see the room once you get it decorated now that you have the new carpet installed! Yay for the 4D/3D ultrasound! I ask my DH if he wanted one, so that we could take the kids to see LO, but he didnt want one, because he says it looks too life-like, and will ruin the surprise of what LO will look like when he comes out... I am kind of bummed about it, because I really wanna see LO again, and I will not get another ultrasound unless they feel something is wrong between now and LO arriving!
Jenn - Come back and update us on your appointment soon!
Carol - How are you?
Sarah - U/S next week right? We should know a little more from you then. Keep your head up and realize, just a week away and you will be able to see your LO.
Sorry to anyone I may have missed!
AFM - I am so tired of the cold! Blah! We have our 32 (almost 33) week appointment this Friday. I have my maternity photo shoot (My aunt is doing mine) this weekend. I hate pictures, but know I want them, and she is really good, but she feels like she has to explain everything. I am like "I could care less, can you just take the picture already?" But I am trying to be a good sport about it. My DH doesnt like pictures either... So we make quite the pair when it comes to family portraits! LOL!!! Next week I have the baby shower that my office is throwing me on the 18th. And the one my sister-in-law is throwing for me on the 22nd. And trust me, I have been checking both registries, and giggle when I realize, NOTHING has been purchased! LOL! I am such a spoil sport. On the 26, we have the hospital tour and pre-registration for delivery. We are doing the Wednesday night tour since that is the only one the kids are allowed to participate in. Looks like February is booking up really fast for me, since I should have another appointment on the 28th. March looks like it should mellow out, so I will probably be able to get my nursery all set up with the stuff from the showers. My DH is supposed to go outta town on the 11-14 of March, and has already had his 25-28 trip covered. My kids were getting a kick outta seeing and feeling their brother move last night. My daughter is so cute when she says... "He is getting bigger, now!" Soon he will be here. I think she is going to be a huge help to me.
Sorry this is so long, guess I had more to say than I thought! LOL!!!
