Gabby - My sister had her son and daughter on the same day. I think they are 2-3 years apart. I just remember being at my nephews birthday party and getting call saying that my sister had the baby.

Hang in there. I don't think that you should take desperate measures until you are over your due date.

Hello Everyone Again!

Still no baby, but I had a good 1 1/2 hr of strong can't talk/ can't walk contractions that just stopped after I relaxed and ate. I was on the phone with the stupid cable company and was so upset, next thing I knew I was contracting. I'm pretty much over this whole pregnancy thing, I have really started to think maybe I should give the castor oil a go, I hear it works 50% of the time, but I'm still 2 weeks from my due date, not sure, just have to leave it in God's hands at this point...

I am a little superstitious though, all my kids have half birthdays of relatives. Tomorrow is another half birthday, so we shall see, and my son's birthday is Thursday, so that would be hard to have two kids to share the same birthday, but probably fun at the same time.

I hope the next time I update, its to say, baby was born!!


Have a great day and evening everyone!!

Yay! Glad to hear that Grandma is keeping in touch! Every day that she watches Heather, you will be a little bit more comfy leaving her there! Just wait until Heather's old enough for her face to light up when she sees you at the end of the day...it will melt your heart, trust me!

Thanks ladies.

Gabby, Get that baby out! I can't imagine going through that for three days!

Mary Jane, Grandma and I have been texting, thankfully. It has really helped alleviate my fears. I can't wait to get home in a couple of hours to hold my baby girl!!

Take Care,
Kathy

Good morning ladies! It's 7:11 a.m. and I am getting ready for work. Just about to head upstairs and wake up the little punkins.

Kathy, everything you are feeling is totally normal so don't feel guilty about how you're feeling one tiny bit! Your reservations about grandma watching your sweet baby girl are totally justified but you are in a situation where you had to find a solution and you followed your gut and went with the one you think will work out best. Now just focus on the positive and do what you have to do to make it work. Call grandma every hour on the hour to check in if you have to! It's your first day away from your baby so that would be totally expected! Is it possible to only work half a day so you can arrive early at Grandma's and kind of check up on how she's doing? Just trying to come up with ideas! LOL!

Gabby, I'm so excited for you! Your new little bundle of joy is going to be here any day! As far as the dr.'s comment regarding the size of the baby's head, DON'T WORRY ABOUT IT! It's not worth the anxiety. You are going to love your baby no matter what and whatever is meant to be will be. (This is coming from the mother of a baby girl with Down syndrome.) Like I told Kathy, focus on the positive and all will be okay.

Have a marvelous Monday everyone!

Mother's Day was fun- saw the wyhole family twice this weekend (had a murder mystery dinner at my house Sat and then saw everyone for lunch after church). Feeling crappy this morning- my husband wanted me to stay home, but I HATE staying home...

My kid is awesome and continues to be awesome- her 2nd bday is the end of the month so it's time to start getting ready for the party- CROGfest 2010 here we come!

Good Morning Everyone!!!

Hope everyone had an enjoyable Mother's Day!

Kathy: I can completely understand where your coming from with your worries, they are very viable. At least you have shared them with her Grandma. Its very normal to be nervous and sad about leaving your precious cargo with anyone at all. I'm sure Heather will do wonderful! Its so nice to have someone who loves and cares look after your baby. I have felt most comfortable with my babysitter who is not my childrens' grandma but is older and has her own Grandchildren.
Sending lots of positive thoughts and vibes your way! good luck on your first day back at work!





I was really hoping to have the baby here for Mother's Day, but he has a different plan. I have been having very irregular contractions, they at times will pick up every 2-5 minutes and be really really strong, can't walk/ talk thing and then let up. This has been happening for a solid 3 days now! So... not sure what to think. Also not sure if anyone has any experience with this, but at my last ultrasound the babies head was measuring in the 98th percentile tile and the Dr. asked whether or not I was tested for Down's, which I didn't do b/c I feel I was keeping the baby no matter what and didn't want the added testing and anxiety. He told me he wasn't worried, but now I'm worried b/c why in the world did he ask that. From the research I have done, it doesn't correlate in any way, but my anxiety about this whole thing is growing.

Have a great day ladies!!!

Back to work for me! emoticon emoticon

I am making the transition somewhat easier - her grandma is going to watch her during the day...I have some reservations. But grandma seems so excited to have her there that I'm feeling better about the decision.

My reservations are:

1) Grandma smokes (she wants to quit - maybe this will help her)

2) Grandpa died 9 days after Heather was born so grandma has some depression issues to work through

3) Grandma has fibromyalgia

4) Grandma tends to stay awake all night and sleep all day

5) Grandma is a HARD sleeper

However, she has stated that Heather is THE most important thing so I'm REALLY hoping that Heather will help her work through her issues. Grandma started by not sleeping today so I'm hoping she sleeps really well tonight. And she started smoking outside so Heather is not subjected to her 2nd hand smoke. I'm aware of the 3rd hand issues but I can only deal with one issue at a time. *sigh* I'm telling myself that I was raised in the same kind of household (my parents smoked as did my brother) and I'm none the worse for it.

I had it set up for Heather to be in a friends home but every time I thought about leaving her there, I broke down in tears which means I wasn't comfortable with it. I've felt so much less anxiety about this because I know Heather means as much to grandma as she does to me and so I hope she'll be put first.

Thoughts?

Sorry for the rant!
