Hi Mo and all you other July Mommies!
We are finally getting some warm sunny weather around here and I am so excited for Spring to arrive. I actually purchased a stroller in anticipation of long walks with our new little girl this summer. It was my first big purchase for the baby I have waited so long for. It was exciting, with a small amount of hesitation that maybe it is still too early to believe this is all actually going to happen. I think we can all relate to that feeling. But we should all continue to think postive thoughts
Mo, my girls are 14, 11 and 10. Mostly they are upset that this was not fully discussed with them first. But my husband and I had no idea if this would actually happen and had many failed attemps and several early M/C. I saw no reason to drag my girls along on this emotional roller coaster until we felt confident that this was the miricle we had been waiting for. They are also a little worried about what this will mean for them....will they have to share a room now, be expected to babysit all the time, have to give up things they have grown acustom to, (because babies are expensive). The baby will cry all night, every night and they will not be able to sleep. I hate to say it, but it makes me mad that they sound so selffish. BUT...they are not that way, and I am hoping it is just the inital shock and once the baby arrives they will feel differently. They are already talking about names, and want to see the sono pics and have even asked if they can feel the baby move. So I am sure things will turn out fine in the end. I am glad we have the kind of relationship that they felt comfortable telling me how they felt and that we were able to talk things through. I hope that communication line is always open.
What did you hear back from your GD tests? everything okay?
What about you other ladies....what is going on with you?
