I recommend taking Red Raspberry Leaf capsules daily starting from 32-34 weeks (start sometime in that time frame and continue up until birth) and then taking or inserting Evening Primrose Oil capsules daily starting at 36 weeks.
And happy new year's eve everyone! 2014 is looking to be a very big year.
happy belated Christmas ladies! been non stop here with my parents visiting, we had a great day together with just hubby and my parents (avoided the drama and stress of going to my brother-in-laws where we would have been shunned anyway. Still annoys me that they get rewarded for wrecking family holidays but oh well...
We spent Christmas eve with hubby's parents and our travel system had arrived that morning so we unpacked that and made it it in the car to put together whilst the turkey cooked on Christmas day My parents put their foot down and paid for it fully instead of splitting the cost with hubby's parents (MIL was a bit miffed but she understood my parents wanted to spoil aiden as it'll be harder for them to do so from the UK). Dad and I put the stroller together in no time and then put the cute Christmas 2013 Harrods bear they got for Aiden in there too!
My parents surprised me with gorgeous freshwater baroque pearl earrings, bracelet and necklace in a stunning black iridescent colour (my Dad hid them from my Mum as he bought her the same set for Christmas and had bought the white set for her for their 30th anniversary back in July) http://www.zenzhupearl.com/1e/Black+...AAA003/PRAA102 <- same colour but the ones he got us are fully baroque so each pearl is unique and I was truly shocked!
We saw the rest of hubby's family on Boxing day where hubby BBQ'd at his parents and certain people (BIL and his wife) got left off the invites to family BBQ time, sad but it made me giggle. Then off for the weekend at Palm springs, where I don't think going up to 8,500ft in the aerial tram was wise for hubby, he got really light headed but I seemed to do fine, I guess being taller (5.11) helps not having your lungs squished as much by baby yet, I didn't do too bad but I didn't push it walking the trails like he did. It was so peaceful up there, we would have spent longer at the top if it wasn't in the 40f range in the shade.
My parents are off out to ring in the new year on the Queen Mary in Long beach and I am planning to go sleep, oh the exciting life of a pregnant woman on new years eve, mind you it is better than last year... Where I was hooked up to IV's and on pain meds after having my only gallbladder attack and my gallbladder removed on new years day! I watched the rose bowl parade from under 7 warmed blankets and a dose of morphine before my surgery LOL! It really doesn't fell like that was a year ago, I swear being pregnant makes time fly! So I hope you lovely ladies have a wonderful night and I so can't wait for 2014 and our little babies to start arriving!
Happy new year everyone!! Gonna be a good one for me I think - My little boy is turning 3 in February (and will be going to nursery), then baby will be coming in March and on the 1st of May we're celebrating our 5th wedding anniversary!
