Glad we are not the only ones who find DTD difficult.... and i'm too tired most nights too lol, and I go to bed around 9:30-10! haha.
Enjoy your evening to yourself tonight I'm lucky that DH is a computer nerd so he spends his time in front of the comp and I get free range for the tv lol. Only bad thing is that I have to kick him off the computer if I want to go on lol.
I've recently started playing the Sims, have you ever tried that game? It's fun to design your home and then look after your characters... I made the mistake of giving my couple fertility treatments and then they had triplets! haha... so fun and hard work when there are triplets to look after, good thing they become toddlers and then children in about a week in the game.
I think its happens to alot of couple as our bellies get so big in pregnancy and the awkwardness diesn't help set the mood either lol!
I think i will just go to bed to watch tv and then hopefully OH won't wake me because i will be fast on by the time he gets home lol. We also have our daughters parents evening tonight goid job i turned the calendar over today or i would of missed it, ooops.
My OH plays on the xbox alot. I have heard of the sims and have played it when i was younger but i don't play games so much now. Good job children don't grow up that fast in real life lol!! x
I used to play the Sims years ago but suddenly a few weeks ago decided i'd like to play it again... so got DH to get me a new version of it. Its a good time waster lol, I play in the evenings when I've done house chores and if nothing is on tv. Once baby is here I doubt i'll be playing much or at all lol... so understand why you don't have time for these things.
Good thing you changed the calendar over and didn't miss your girl's parent teacher meeting tonight. I've realized that I have one very busy week this month when I turned over my calendar... on Feb 20th is a stat holiday here in Ontario "Family Day" lol... then the next day I have my meeting with the doctor who will be delivering and we get to tour the hospital... then the following day is my regular doctor's appointment. So will have a busy week between the 20th - 22nd! Hopefully my work understands why I need to take so much time off.
Its good you've got something to keep you busy while you are pregnant as sometimes all you want to do is stay in and relax rather than go out lol. You do have less time to yourself once you've got children, OH and I don't go out together alot but every now and then we try to set aside time where we will put the girls to bed early, rent a DVD and have a takeaway or something.
Parents evening was great, my daughters teacher only had good things to say about her and that she is doing very well at school! Its amazing how much she has changed since she started primary school in 2010. Family Day sounds like a good day, do you all get together to celebrate? You must be excited about touring the hospital now everything is closer and i'm sure your work will understand you are taking the time off for an important reason x
You must be so proud of your daughter, it sounds like she is doing very well at school. It's amazing to think that in a few years our little boys will be going through the same thing.
Family Day is still a new holiday around here, I think this may only be the 3rd or 4th year for it. It's basically just another statuary holiday, in our family it just means a day off work lol. It's on a Monday so we don't really go out to see extended family as we all work the following day. But since I don't work on Fridays, it means a 4 day weekend for me It's also the weekend before the Baby Shower, so i'll probably be helping my Mom with the plans (menu and games and such). Maybe a few years down the line when Kieran is bigger we will do something for Family Day.
I am very proud of both my girls, they are so good, well most of the time lol!! My youngest daughter will be starting reception class in September, it will be strange with both of them at school all day.
Yay for long weekends lol!! Bet you can't wait until your baby shower, not long now, i am sort of sad there not very traditional in this country because they sound like good fun.
Well 12days and i will find out if i have to have a c-section or can give birth, i'm quite nervous about the c-section idea so hopefully i will get the go ahead for a natural birth, the only good thing will be i can arrange childcare for the girls lol.
Yes, the shower should be a good time... my Mom is hosting it at her home, so I guess we have to come up with baby shower games and some snack foods as we plan to have the shower between 2-4pm. Our dilemma is whether to serve wine. My mother in law will be coming and she always brings wine to any get together, which is fine, it's just it's an afternoon thing and everyone will have to drive home afterwards. Also, my grandmother will be coming and she isn't great with alcohol in her system (after 1 or 2 drinks she becomes a very nasty person and will say whatever is on her mind). So we like to avoid alcohol around her lol. Plus, it's not like I can have a drink... and it's a baby shower lol. So not sure what they are going to do with that, but I think i'm going to leave it up to my mom and MIL to decide, I personally don't care if alcohol is served, I have no cravings for the stuff actually (though I did miss my Baileys around x-mas).
When your younger daughter starts school in the fall it will be just you and your little boy at home, that might be nice. Plus, it will give you a break as I'm sure the summer holidays will be hard work with 2 little girls and a newborn, you'll probably be glad she is off to school too lol.
I sure hope you'll be able to have a natural birth, esp since you've only ever had a natural birth, it will be pretty different to have a c-section experience. But just remember, whatever the doctor suggests will be whats best for baby.
Oooh what sort of games do you play? Have you been to a baby shower before, maybe you could take ideas from those if you have. Maybe you should just serve soft drink and beverages and if people want to bring their alcohol then thats fine. But as its an afternoon and people are driving home, many of them might not drink anyway.
It will be nice just me and the baby at home, so we can spend some quality time together, I'm hoping i cope fine in the summer holidays, 6wks is a long time lol. I will just have to find us lots of fun things to do so my older two are entertained as well.
I am happy with whatever the doctor says, as all i want is a healthy baby, but i'm really crossing my fingers for a natural birth. I keep getting told by people that recovery is harder after a c-section and with having my two girls i don't really want a long recovery time. Hopefully all will go well! x
I've only been to 1 baby shower and there weren't really any games played. But it's easy to find baby shower games by going online, so i'm sure to find some fun ones.
Be glad you don't live in Canada then, summer holidays are 8-10 weeks long. Kids get off school at the end of June and don't go back until the first monday of Sept, so they get long summer holidays. But we get less holidays throughout the year then you do. Kids get 2 days off at Thanksgiving in Oct, 1.5 weeks for x-mas, 1 week in March and 2 days off for Easter. I think in England kids get like 1 or 2 weeks off around easter right?
So I am feeling very good today. Finally made it to my hair appointment and ended up getting more done than I'd expected. I was also an hour early (oops prego brain, made the apppontment a week ago and forgot the time)... so when I got there they let me go have a free massage (a water-type bed that uses water pressure to message your body)... it was amazing! Then I ended up getting highlights in my hair and a cut. So feeling very rejuvinated right now... I also just made myself a strawberry-banana smoothie
How are you feeling today? Got any plans for the weekend?
I look online when the girls have birthday parties to, its hard to find things that will kepp everyone entertained.
Wow 8-10wks!! We do have alot of school holidays throughout the yr and alot of bank holidays to.
Ooops!! Must of been nice to get a massage and some highlights though, i bet you feel so much fresher. I know i do when i get my hair done.
We went out for dinner with the girls last night and then went to a friends house so the girls could play and we had a chat etc. We didn't get in until around 10pm and the girls went straight to sleep when we got home!! although they still got up really early this morning. I haven't got any plans for today, so will just be cleaning because i had a busy day yesterday and didn't get much done. My sister is coming down sunday and we will both be getting our hair done so that will be nice.
