Re: Pregnancy After Loss (December)

Harmony96: Sorry mama My advice? Unplug the phone until after the baby is born! No really...do it! Try to see this as some extra YOU time. Take a bath, eat something really yummy, have your hubby rub your feet, go for a walk, get a massage , get your hair done...the list goes on and on. You are at the PERFECT time to get people to do things for you and have an excuse to pamper yourself so I say run with it! Hopefully the next time we see you is to OOO and AHH over your beautiful new babe!

Andrea - That would bother the heck outta me too. Actually, remembering back to Levi, it did bug the heck outta me. At least my parents didn't call multiple times a day, just once every few days, but the people IRL were annoying!

Re: Pregnancy After Loss (December)

I finished unpacking the few stored baby clothes that I kept (baby's going to live in sleepers, even going out, for a very long time, lol... I'll have to get him one or two "church" outfits) this afternoon, and I assembled all my birth supplies into a box in an orderly fashion, and realized that I don't have any hats after all. So I had DH pull boxes out from under the bed (where I was stashing my plethora of craft supplies) until I found my crochet hooks and some suitable yarn (some chocolate colored soft acrylic) and I made a couple of newborn hats.

NOW I'm ready.

But, if this baby wants to play a "numbers game" with his birthday like my other kids did, then he probably won't be born until the 2nd or 3rd, so his birthday can be 1-2-13 or 1-3-13.

Andrea. The questions can be so obnoxious! People tend to start weeks early, and then it just gets worse and worse. Bah! At least their intentions are good. My SIL gave birth earlier this month and people starting pestering her a full 5 weeks before her due date. Sometimes they were actually frustrated that baby WASN'T already there. I felt so bad for her having to deal with all that!

That's a great way to start the new year, too!

Bet he was waiting for the hats
A friend of mine went overdue, kept putting off buying this diaper bag she really wanted but thought it was too much $$. Finally she gave in, after a week + over, and bought the bag to cheer herself up - she went into labor that night and baby came - he was waiting for that bag

I've finally gotten Levi's cross stitch birth announcement done ( yes, 2 years too late!) and now I'm letting myself start things for Hiccup. Have a hat and 2 headbands done for a Hiccup-girl, need to get buttons to finish the shoes to match, and I'm starting on a rainbow set (I want to get a hat and boots, then a cocoon). Forgot how much I like crocheting & knitting!

They were frustrated that baby wasn't already there... early? People are so dumb sometimes.
I remember with Levi all the moms at nursery school and dance classes kept bothering me about him being "almost due" then "over due, coming any day" and how they couldn't wait to hold the baby for me - I was thinking the whole time "He'll come when he's good and ready... and you're sure as hell not holding him anyways!" but would just smile and nod. strangers wanting to snuggle my baby!

Re: Pregnancy After Loss (December)

I'm home from my folks' house... feels good to be back and sleeping in my own bed!!! I can't even believe I'm in the 14th week now... the holidays sure helped the last couple of weeks fly by for me... I find out the gender two weeks from tomorrow... I am sooo excited! Have my fingers crossed for a girl!!

I hope you all had a great holiday season! Andrea, been thinking of you and hoping your family can lay off with the "are you contracting yet?" comments.. that's annoying!!
