Hello my dears!
LITERATRIZ-- it's so good to hear from you
Oh my God, what a trip with that other girl's parents. I feel so sorry for the little baby (and in a way for the mother as well); addiction destroys lives...hmmm.
Anyway, about your little beauties: Cecilia must be home with you right now...yay! I thought it was interesting what you said about the car seat test. I didn't realize that. Do they do it only with premeeis or do they do it with every child? How about your other two girls? how much longer until they come home? I'm sending lots of great energy for them to put on the pounds really fast (especially Evelyn).
Your mama is an angel...from Brazil to MA in the middle of the winter. God bless her. I'm so glad she's there with you, I bet it makes a huge difference.
ALREADYBLESSED--3/31 wow! I keep thinking about you since you said your two girls came at 37 weeks and this is precisely our 37th week...you may be our next mama!!!
know that I'm thinking about you dear.
You made me laugh with your story trying to seduce DH but not having the energy...hehehhee! isn't life like that? I just have the feeling that whenever dh and I end up doing it again (***someday****) I will probably be wild because I'm starving here
shyness? what's that? I used to be, but not after this process. You're right, after all the IVF + pregnancy I feel like "my business" is all out there, AND if I can't have sex, then might as well talk about it...it's for mental health...hehhehehehe.
I'm a facebook fanatic (my brother got me into it a couple of years ago when it was only for college students). I will PM you.
BABYLOVES--with twins you're getting even closer. How are you doing darling?
SILVERANGEL--you are getting really close too...how are you feeling?
KERPUPPLES--how was your shower? I had a sweet time at mine.
MICHELLE--my friend who's organizing my "virtual" baby shower contacted me yesterday...she's going ahead with it! it's going to be on March 28th at 3pm. Still don't know the logistics, but it is happening, so I guess I'll keep you posted. Maybe through Skype? it should be fun and interesting!
How are you recovering from your surgery?
SONU--how's Anay doing? how's mama doing? Oh, and how's your sister?
JENNY--Yeah, I have a lot of wishful thinking too, but then I talked with my godmother yesterday and she kind of discouraged me. I sent her pictures from the baby shower, and she said "you look great! I think that baby is going to be there for a while because your belly looks too high and your nose still looks small"
Her theory is that women swollen up a few days before delivery and their noses get big and fat. hmmmm. Well, whenever my baby decides to come, but to tell you the truth I'm kind of hoping for an earlier delivery. Our spring break starts this coming weekend, imagine if she came then? it would be great (although dh doesn't want it to happen then, because he's hoping to use the week to write and catch up on some projects before baby comes).
I had a lovely baby shower. I loved the energy in the room, there was this happy feeling in the air. I feel so blessed and touched by everyone's love and attention. We got a lot of adorable cloths. DH said at one point "this girl is going to have more clothes than me"
and we also got a lot of practical stuff like baby wipes, baby tub, bobby pillow, etc. There were many things still left in the registry list, but that's ok, because in reality we don't REALLY need ALL that stuff. From the essentials we still need to get the car seat, a stroller, a sling, and I'd like to get the bouncy chair because I've heard that babies tend to love them...I think that might be it (of course there are other things that we'll probably get little by little but they are not "must" haves...or so I think/hope). We're planning on getting the car seat this week, just to be ready since she might come anytime after Wednesday. We'll probably return a few things, I have to do some sort of inventory. I think we may have way too many bath time stuff (e.g. towels), and we also got a couple of gift cards, so that will be helpful when buying the car seat and the stroller. Oh, we need to buy diapers. I want to combine cloth with disposables for when we're out. Anybody else doing cloth diapers?
We've been fortunate because we've gotten a few great hand-me downs. We got a crib, and a bassinet, a really nice breast pump (I just need to buy the parts that touched the other mother's milk...no biggy), cloths, and will get a high chair.
yesterday I spent the day cleaning our bedroom and opening space for our baby girl things in our closets. I got rid of clothes and a few other things. I want the place to feel light and clean. Nesting, anyone?
