first and foremost....HAPPY THANKSGIVING LADIES!!!!!
Sonu~ I loved your Thanksgiving post and prayer....I couldn't have said it better myself, and I read it over several times. Today as I sat around the table with my family, I had so many things to be thankful for, and yet I found myself so meloncoly thinking about missing my grandmother who was just an absolute joy to be around. With this, my 9 yr old daughter stands up and says grace. It was beautiful and she ended by saying that she knows that great grandma and pop pop were also having a feast in heaven and they were sitting at a golden table with golden chairs and they were smiling. I really felt that God put those words on my daughters lips to take the heaviness off my heart. It was a wonderful moment. I am so glad to hear also that you did not have any family or friends involved in the recent tragedy in your country. Such senslessness, and such sadness. I can only relate to it by comparing 9-11, as my husband works for the police dept. and I was working for the fire dept. at the time, so we spent many hours down at ground zero, and it was truly surreal. You couldn't wrap your head around the enormity and sadness of it.
Baby loves~about the whole sex issue, I know what you mean...there are days where the thought of sex repulses me, and then there are these days I wake up like I'm on my honeymoon. If DH isn't in the mood I just reach for my AA batteries and thank the Lord for novelty stores.
I mean we're pregnant, not dead. I do feel strange sometimes like my son is in there thinking ok mom, get a grip on yourself. I actually remember feeling very strong movement around 24 or 25 weeks to the point where DH could feel it from the outside. I am realizing that each pregnancy is so different though, and so you can never really tell what will be. Last night I was laying on the couch and he gave me a kung-fu kick a few times. DH put his hand there, and then he was quiet. Since then no more big time kicks. You are having twins and I can't wait to start getting the posts from you because between you and Literatriz there are 10 legs and arms that will be a flailing. Oh I just wanted to say that I know what you mean about the discharge, and it being psychological. After my month of hemmorhaging, I find there are times that I have that whitish discharge, or I laugh and my bladder gives way a little, but I find myself constantly checking and holding my breath to make sure it's not the bleeding again. The mind is very powerful. Try to stay positive. You are entering the home stretch!
Lit~ good to hear from you. WOW 3 girls!!!!!!! Is your husband shopping for large locks for the front door yet?! I must say that my husband is thrilled to be having the boy, but watching him with my girls is priceless. I truly fall in love with him all over again when I watch him play with them and he doesn't know I'm sneaking a peak. He is also so protective and worries about them, and it is so beautiful. Your DH will have this three fold. How amazing for the both of you! God Bless! What country are you from? So sorry (baby brain). Traditionally DH do not place gifts at the door after a baby is born. They usually purchase something for their wife, and others send the usual balloons and flowers to the hospital room. I figure with you delivering 3 all at once, that your DH will be filling the entire doorway with handicrafts and your visitors will have to enter through the window.
Amy~ God Bless...Happy Thanksgiving. Still praying and thinking of you.
As the time goes by I am realizing that I have the only fetus with "the noodle". That is until sonu delivers and we find out who is in there.
All I can say is that my little boy is going to have a lot of girlfriends that he doesn't even know about.
I must be honest. I went to babies r us the other day to look for "boys bedding", and I found some really cute things. Truth be told.......little girls clothes are so much cuter than little boys. You guys are going to love shopping for your girls. Both of mine were all dressed up today for the holiday and they were so precious. But for me, the time has come for bugs, baseballs, and barber shops. I look forward to the new experience, but I will miss the pony tails and mary jane shoes. Have a wonderful holiday weekend ladies. Stay well. God bless.
