House Cleaning

Ok So, I am alil upset at wi.kipe.dia for leading me astray on the Br.oth.er's and Si.st.er's Show. NOW according to my googling skills, It will be on this sunday night at 10 pm. So I dunno what is going on with that show and the scheduling with the network. (just thought i'd clarify since i also lead a few others astray)

*p-word mentioned

About this post: 5 weeks (and some change) has passed since this post. I am not mentally all that different. I am finding myself starting to research: bottles and strollers. (yes only those 2 things) I have started to have those "air bubble" feelings and a few people (that have permission) have place their hand on my belly and felt where the baby was sitting/laying and felt it move away. Which eases my mind immencely. even if they are lying to me. Some days i feel much more confident than when seeing hte 2 lines, other days i feel just as freaked out as when seeing those 2 lines knowing that not all 2 lines=THB (take home baby) Just like having no control over your cycles, you control to have no control this either. I never really grapsed that during cycles, So I am having a hard time putting that into practice now.

I have alot of support and alot of prayers and I thank everyone that is contributing to this. ( I am talking about YOU, yes YOU!) You are keeping me off zoloft (for now). I am getting excited about my appointment on Friday. If you haven't noticed yet, I did add the guess what I'm having poll. I still am very neutral. I do not have a clue what it is. I have always loved guessing what others are having, but with me, It just doesn't seem like I know what to guess or have any intuition/insite. By having y'all guess, It is helping with my dr's appointment anxiety that I get about 8 days before each appointment. (Like I stated in a previous post). I am trying to conquer my (irrational) fears - so Let's have some fun, Guess away.

I just thought you weren't commenting because you were unsure what to say to me since I am not currently cycling. I have noticed that since I went psswd protected I get far less comments than I used to. Sort of makes me feel isolated and alone. I tend to read your blog daily(even if I don't comment every day) so it is o.k. if you don't comment. I am so excited about you and your little miracle baby. Maybe next time you are in St. Simons I can go visit. I think that it is perfectly o.k. to be a little nervous. I hear the britax marathon is a great car seat. It saved the life of a child I know. Good Luck and I hope your mood picks up.

DANG! I just made it 8 to 8! I voted girl, I can see you with a girl but not a biy for some reason. Not that if you have a boy I think you will be a bad mom, just that I picture you with a girl. How is that for some back-peddling? :o)

Bottles...I only used Dr. Brown's. They have more parts than a regular bottle, but I love them anyway and will use them again.

Strollers, don't ask me...I have been through 4 in the past 3 years and will be buying a new one when the next arrives.

Car Seats...Graco go the highest safety rating but other brands have such cute styles!

I voted and made it 9 to 9! :) Where did you get your poll thingy by the way?

Jen said...

I understand completly about the anxiety still coming and going. With my twins I didn't even want the delivery nurse calling me "mom". Just know that you are well on your way and keep the positive thoughts up front.

As far as bottles, my sis just had a baby and is using born free bottles. Something about plastic bottles being dangerous to heat up. I used dr. browns and liked them.

Strollers, - I used graco and liked it.

Car seats, - graco again. :)

I can't wait til your appointment!! I don't know what to tell you about the bottles and strollers. I know my sister likes hers, but for the life of me I can't remember what they are ( and I know she's told me mult. times about a certain bottle she likes, maybe I'll ask her again for you ). At least you have something new to google, I've run my stuff into the ground that now I think I know more than google does:)
At any rate, I'm still praying for you to have calm nerves (like that's gonna happen completely, ha) and I am so happy for every milestone you get to.
Love ya girlie!

Bottles- Dr.Browns or the drop-ins are the ones I've heard parents have the most success with and usually if I'm asked I'll say the Dr.Brown's. Some babies have difficulties with different nipples (usually preemies) so I wouldn't stock up too much until you know the baby does okay with that one.

I voted girl because I want a little princess for you. :) Of course that had to tie it again, lol. I'll be pretty excited if you have a boy too. I love your little floating baby and seeing it grow!

Meghan said...

Sorry you're still having such anxiety. Unfortunately it just seems to the next phase of this crazy game.

I'll keep on thinking positive thoughts for you!!

Good luck making it the next 8 days (i'm thinking girl...any chance you'll be able to find out at the next u/s???)

Will you be finding out the gender at your upcoming appointment?

waitinginline said...

I'm so glad that the movements you're feeling are giving you some comfort. I wish there was something I could do to take the fear away. But I have faith that this is your THB.

As far as bottles and strollers...way beyond me. I have heard good things about Dr. Brown's. But of course this is all hear-say for me. :-)

And I think you know how I guessed. wink wink

Barb said...

I can't believe you are at 50/50 exactly right now!

I think my gender detector is out of commission lately. I will vote shortly, however, I don't know what good I'll be in really getting a good read. :P

In any event, know that I'm thinking about you and wishing you the best at your scan! It's so exciting! I can't wait to hear all the details! :)

TABI said...

Wow, it's a tie so far. I hope either way you have a healthy baby!! It's very exciting and hope your scan goes well!

I heard a theory once that a lot of folks who have been through infertility before conceiving end up having a girl. I don't know if that is true AT ALL, but once I looked around me at people I knew who had been IF and now had children....there were a lot of girls, now that I thought about it. It probably has NO bearing at all, but it's fun to consider. :) Glad you're open to either.

FattyPants said...

Your poll is still 50/50. I said girl.

Morrisa said...

Ohhhh, I made it 50/50, I voted girl!

A said...
