Oooh massage sounds awesome. I might book myself in for one
I have crutches and a wheelchair from when my arthritis was really bad so I'll use them when I need to. I had to use crutches towards the end with Shaun but it feels different this time, it's not pressure from the baby on my pelvis that's making me sore, it's the overlapping and grinding! I'm not sure how much crutches will help. There's no pain at all in my pelvis when I'm walking, just when I'm lying down.
I've been able to turn my belly button inside out for the past couple of weeks and Shaun thinks it's the funnies thing ever!
Am back to work today. Should of been yesterday but was still feeling rubbish so didn't come in. Still feeling crappy today really but I just feel so guilty when I'm off.
I need your opinion ladies. My DH was away for the weekend between Xmas and New Year for some remote control racing event in Preston. A day or two after he gets home he tells me he's been invited to their next event at Easter. I ask when Easter is and he says its the 30-31 March. My due date is 29 March and am having an elective c section so likely will have been in hospital during that week to have DS2. I've said I don't want him to go and I wouldn't normally tell him not to do something but he doesn't seem to see why I would think its totally unreasonable. I can just see this turning into a massive argument. Its his 40th on 5 April so I can see him saying he wants to do it for his birthday and as he is the committee chairperson for his club he should go blah blah blah.
I'd say no way my hubby wanted to go out to a gig on April 12th I'm due the 16th so I told him he cudnt go to it but he was fine about it... Men just don't get it tht they need to be there around our baby's being born especially when u already hav wee Kaiden. Xxx
I'd be demanding he doesn't go lol. Surely he can see why you don't want him to go? If he doesn't, have you pointed it out? Xx
When he first mentioned it I just said 'I dont think so!' and it wasnt really spoken about. His mum was round the other day and asked how he had got on when he was away and it was mentioned again and I said I thought it was unreasonble to expect to go and she agreed with me but said she wasn't getting involved. Its not been spoken about since. I think I will wait and see if he brings it up again.
Men!! My ex went to Cyprus for 2 weeks for his cousins wedding when Shaun was 2 weeks old. Why do they think its acceptable to just up and leave? If you wanted to disappear that weekend he'd probably say eh no, you're having a baby!! Funny how its different for them. Stick to your guns, you will need help with the baby and kaiden!
I got all my baby shopping finished today. My brother works in toys r us and gets a 20% discount across their baby range so I thought I'd go and take advantage of the sales. His colleague gave me a voucher for an additional 20% off babies r us so I got £800 worth of stuff for £475. That's not including the jan sales discounts. I've got a code for babies r us online, 20% off until Sunday. 20JANS if any of you want to use it
Laura, that's great you got everything so cheap!! If you hear of any other discount codes, let us know!! Lol.
Kaybee, I really think your OH should be staying with you. If it had been that he was going the week before your due date then it might have been ok but considering it's 2 days after your date and you're going for an elective section, surely he doesn't think it's ok to go when you have a 2 day old baby and are recovering from the section??
I have a kinda similar issue in that we normally spend the first weekend in April in Nottingham watching ice hockey. It's the culmination of the season and is always a great weekend. Problem is it works out 2 weeks before my due date and I'm trying to decide whether or not I should go, especially since there's a chance the Edinburgh team will make it to the semi finals which are played on the Saturday. OH has said he's going with or without me lol and is taking my stepson which I don't mind as I know he could be back up here in about 4 hours should anything happen. The hotel has been booked and I need to have my ticket for the event booked and paid by the end of February whic is £70. I'm thinking I'll book the ticket for me anyway and if I don't feel up to going when it comes to it, I can try and sell it to someone else or just take the hit.
Slightly off topic as well but I just found out my dogs sister was hit by a car today and didn't make it, she was only 2 and the most beautiful spaniel, the spitting image of her brother. I've known her owners since I was 13 and they're absolutely devastated. I'm so upset for them, keep looking at Moby (my mutt) and getting very teary xx
Hey ladies. Welcome back cherry bump. I was beginning to wonder where you'd got to. Lol. I see your little lady has a name now :-). Paige is lovely!
Thanks for the discount code Laura. Think we'll use it to buy our cot mattress. That's great you've got everything now! Just the nursery left to decorate eh? Will you manage, what with your spd being so sore?
Karen, you any further forward with hubby?? Maybe his mum could make him see sense since she agrees with you lol. Surely it's worth a try if he is so set on going?
Arlene, I'd just book your ticket and sell it if need be. 2 weeks before your due date isn't long but who knows, you might go to 42 weeks, and kick yourself for not going if you don't chance it.
So I'm just in from going to the hospital. I've had to phone the midwife for the last 3 days due to agonising pains on my right side. Phoned again tonight to find out if there was anything else I could do at home to help it as I was already doing all they'd told me to and was still in agony but they insisted I went in to get checked. An hour later and the same conclusion was reached. Severe ligament pain and spasms. She gave me dyhydracodine to take if I need to but then basically told me not to take it and even though she could see I was in agony, she suggested I should just put up with it! I feel a right idiot for going in now, but it is soooooo sore! Nothing is helping... Rest, heat, a bath, paracetamol... Nothing! 4 days this has been going on, on and off, thank god! But it better end soon! Thankfully my doc signed me off another week though! God knows how I'd have managed at work!
