I'll probably be making another post in a little bit about more baby-related update stuff but I made posts all over the communities I'm in about moving from Maryland to Florida at 36 weeks and I'd been asked how things went, so here is an update (which is overdue, and also LONG)...

Just a mini-update (x-posted) [Jul. 19th, 2007|09:07 pm]

So I started to write a complete update, but I'm really not up to it.  There's a lot to tell.  So as for the short version, Billy and I are moved down to Florida (as I've posted about - we had to move from Maryland down to Florida to move into a new place here).  Anyway, we were staying with my dad and his girlfriend since we got here late Saturday night, but my dad and Billy got into a big fight yesterday.  Fortunately, his mom lives in the same neighborhood, so we came over here to stay.  We had to ask his sister to watch the cats for us because his mom didn't want them here.  We're just here for another couple of weeks until we can move into the new rental house we'll be staying in.  We're sharing a twin-size bed...and that is a huge challenge.  I'm not getting much sleep.   

As far as the baby goes, I'm really scared of him coming early now because we're not in our new place and being at his mom's house isn't like my dad's.  There's not much room for the baby to have to stay here.  So I'm begging him to stay in until AT LEAST August 1st.  I've already set up my medicaid and started seeing a doctor at the health department.  I have an ultrasound set up at the hospital on Monday.  They want to see how big the baby is because they think he's fairly large (the doc at the health department said the same thing as the doc in MD had said just by feeling from the outside...they think the baby is about 7lbs at this point).  I know these things are not always accurate, so I'm not going to panic or anything.  They're talking about induction and all that good crap, but I plan on refusing it for as long as possible - probably until about 41 weeks.  But I have a feeling he'll be here before that.  The doc at the health department didn't do a cervical exam.  She said she didn't think it was necessary, but that if they think the baby is "large" when they do the ultrasound, she'll be checking me to see if my body is making any progress in hopes that he'll be here before he's huge, lol.  I'm not worried about it - I'm sure he'll be a big baby...but I'm not worried about not being able to birth him.  

Even the short version has become long...but anyway...more to come later.

Fire Resistant/Blanket Issue [Jul. 18th, 2007|03:52 pm]

I'm knitting a baby blanket for my baby, and I just realized that the yarn isnt fire resistant. (Its 100% acrylic, so it just melts when on fire).

Should I find something to wash it in to make it more fire resistant? What else could I do?

Thanks in advance!

I wrote this last night and posted it in my personal journal, but thought I would share it with you guys too...

So I went to my 36 week appointment today (technically, yesterday since it's 12:15am now). Anyway, everything went very much better than last time...well, almost everything.  I was sort of annoyed that I ended up having to wait for about an hour in the waiting room for the OB (my usual OB is still out until sometime later this week).  So, here's the skinny on the appointment:

Shameless Promotion [Jul. 12th, 2007|08:38 am]

I'm advertising a new community that we're trying to get off the ground.

Its main focus is toward past and present young parents, especially moms.

When I got pregnant with my son, I didn't know anyone who'd been there and done that- all the moms I knew were older and a lot more stable. It would have been good to have someone I knew who'd been through it already.

So- we've created adopt_youngmoms for that purpose- to connect new young parents (not just moms!) with experienced young parents.

Hope you all are doing well and enjoying the summer!

Thanks!

35 week appointment and bed-rest (x-posted) [Jul. 6th, 2007|08:41 pm]

I went for my 35 week appointment yesterday.  I usually have it ON the day of my new week (which would have been Wednesday) but this week fell on the 4th of July and the office was closed for the holiday.  Also, MY doctor was on vacation (for bunyan surgery) so I had to see one of her partners.  The doctor I did end up seeing was an older Asian woman who I DID NOT like.  She was much less subtle about things.  She was NOT sweet at all like my other doctor and she was VERY condescending.  I'm GLAD I didn't pick her to be my doctor this whole way through.  So anyway, this is what happened:

Baby shower pictures (x-posted) [Jun. 25th, 2007|10:50 pm]
Lacking in years,but loving as parents.

hacketts_girl
I've been meaning to post these for a while, but it took my sister a while to get them to me because she had issues with the file and then with trying to burn them onto a disk.  I didn't have any pics on a camera of my own because my camera decided to crap itself the day of my shower, lol.  

So anyway, all these pictures were taken when I went to NY to visit my mom and my sister and have my baby shower at my mom's house.  There's other stuff I wish I had pictures of like the party favors they gave out  and such, but I never did get pics of them so maybe I can post pics of them later because I have leftover ones.  Anyway, there were SO many pictures and this is just a portion of them...

LOTS OF PICS UNDER THE CUTCollapse )
