Kalon super glad to hear that you had a long talk with him. Try not to get it down too much, its a very stressful time like ptr said as much as its exciting its scary and stressful too especially becoming first time parents. Just keep communicating and you will be just fine.
Maze I can't believe you only have 91 days. I feel like its going by so fast but when you put it in that perspective it kind of freaks me out! I hope you don't have a repeat of bp problems though. I'm sure thats tough and scary.
I will be 39 weeks and I really hope I can hold off till then, I know that sounds unusual because after 37 weeks most women are like OK I AM READY NOW... but Sophie's birthday is the 11th of September, so if I can keep two weeks between their birthdays (and later, their birthday parties) it will be a little less overwhelming.
Oh yes I know that feeling. There is precisely 1 week between both my kids and i thought i was going into labour on his birthday but thankfully it was a bit of time. I wanted it a bit more apart to give them that separate feeling of their own birthdays.
Thanks ladies! I certainly don't feel alone. You're all wonderful.
Wow, it really isn't much longer for you then, Maze! This has all gone by so quickly. I've decided that I would like to be induced on October 16th if I don't give birth naturally before then. That way he'll have a fair chance to come out on his own without me reaching the dreadful 2 week overdue mark. It would also be nice to have at least 10 days between his birthday and mine so that he can be able to really have his own birthday and feel special (if I let myself go the max amount that they'll let me before I'm induced then I'd be giving birth two days before my birthday). I think 10 days is a nice recovery time so that I'll actually be able to enjoy my birthday too rather than spending it either in the hospital and/or in serious pain this year.
Weird. I want to give birth on the 16th too. My niece, nephew, grandma, and I all have the sixteenth for birthdays ranging from July to November, except for October. It's only 2 days past my due date, so it's possible!
I've been told I'm not allowed to give birth on the 16th It's my day's birthday that day and he doesn't want to share it! Lol. What with it being 4 days before my due date I've told him there's a chance he could be getting a grandchild for his birthday this year.
Sept 27 is my mother's birthday. My sister wants the baby on that day. I was induced at 39w4d with my first so i *dont* think i would be induced at 39 weeks exact unless my dr is in favor for it I am leaning for an October birthday though as October is my favorite month.
