The only people I want around after he is born are my mom and DH. I don't want a lot of questions and people passing my baby around at the beginning. They can like it or not lol...it's my child so I have the right to make decisions for his well-being.
Im glad to hear i'm not the only person who feels like this, although if i stayed in my pyjamas all day, my MIL would tell OH that i am lazy and need to snap out of it!!! She is a witch.
midnight - i been like that all day too. i was awake at 5am cos i felt sick i was so hungry!!! Ever since it feels like i havent eaten!!! dont know what thats all about.
had a productive day today, washing and tidying. just ordered some brochures to think about a mini break in sept, as all refurbishment in all houses should be done by then, and i feel we will all be entitled to a break!!!
I'm sorry you've had such a rough time of it this week Future! It makes me feel bad for feeling sorry for myself for spending a day in bed with the flu on NYE lol. I really hope you get your induction date If it's 36 weeks that's only a couple of weeks away!
Also congrats to BSM! Can't believe that's us all almost done!!
I still have it and I'm still pretty weak and dizzy...seeing flashing lights and black spots. I checked my BP last night and this morning (my mom let me borrow her little handheld machine) and it's completely normal...but my pulse is way up (has been between 114 and 121 everytime I took it). So I really don't know what's going on. Could be anemia maybe? I think my iron could definitely be low. I have an OB appt Thurs so I plan to tell them about what's going on. Baby wiggled all last night and kept me up a lot (strange for him as he usually sleeps at night), but he has been quieter today. I am just watching his movements and if he doesn't pick up I may call L&D.
Perpetual- if they woke me up to ask me about contraception I think i would Lille them. I don't have a temper but that would get me!!
I do understand people want to come and be involved because a new baby is exciting. If I wanted anything though I would go to my mum first. Dh gets his 2 weeks paternity leave and mum said she would have a few days with me then. The last thing I want is people staying, my mum I could handle because she would know if I was tired and ratty and understand but with mil/fil I feel like I have to entertain them and seriously don't want that after LO arrives!!
My dh decided to tell my family on Xmas day we are thinking of having a home birth. So my mum now says my cousin is concerned I'm considering it and today at the shops I heard my auntie going on to my mum over it. It is so annoying when people pass comment like that! My mw worked in the local hospital which is 10 mins from my house and said they are so short staffed it is virtually impossible to give the best care to Ladies labouring. At home I will have 1 mw then another to help deliver the baby. My friend had a baby New Year's Day, her first and was discharged less than 3 hours later at 10 pm! I'm not ruling out going to hospital but want to stay at home as long as possible and if I'm comfortable and happy will deliver at home but if I'm not happy or mw has a concern I will go straight to the hospital. Families are stressful sometimes!!!!!!
