Washingtonda- oh my goodness! I would have been so scared, but I am glad they got everything under control. Everyone keeps telling me that anything can happen at this point, and I just shrug it off, but then I hear a story like yours and it proves how real and how close we all are to becoming parents. I still haven't even had any braxton hicks yet, so I don't even know what to expect contractions to feel like. Did you know they were contractions? Good luck at the ob today and i hope for your sake you don't need bed rest, but keep in mind, baby cmoes first, your work will still be there for you when you get back around to it. Please keep us posted.
Esperanza- Thank you so much for the kind words. I could have neevr made it through this whole process without friends like you from my dec/jan thread. Congrats to dh on his dissertation and I hope your schooling is going well. Where do you live now? It is exciting to make a move like that. When is your FET? Are you on a thread under in vitro so we can follow your story? I am praying this is your time and please keep us posted.
Lostgirl- Thanks for making me feel better about the weight gain. I know I shouldn't worry, but I started this process overweight, as did my dh, so we are both planning to lose a lot after the baby, so we can be as healthy as possible. We lost a lot of weight a long time ago but then with quiting smoking, we gained a lot back, so I hope we can do it again.
I am getting super excited about the baby shower on sunday. I know it is on sunday but I don't know anything else about it, so the place will be a suprise. I got a little jipped out of my wedding shower, because I had complications from an emergency sinus surgery, so I was highly medicated and felt miserable. Also, Now that I have been out of work for over a month, I get bored easy, so any event is exciting. A week after the shower is my brother's wedding, which I am maid of honor for, so I have a lot in the next couple of weeks. After the wedding though, it will just be a long hot muggy august waiting for the baby to come.
Well, I am off to the mall to look for a dress for the baby shower. We are also going to see the batman movie, we heard it was really good, and no better place to be on a hot day then the air conditioned mall.
Talk to you all soon!
