Schmoo- sorry about the carpel tunnel, I know that’s gotta be rough. The good news is it should go away after the baby is born. Speaking of, any contractions yet? How excited are you to find out what you are having? We tried to wait, but we couldn’t do it. So I think it’s great that you and your hubby have the patience to find out! You’re getting close!! Can’t wait to hear how things are going.
Holding, great news that your bleeding so far has stopped. And yes, your hubby is right that puppies prepare you for children!! We have 3 small dogs, and I know that dealing with them as puppies taught me to have some patience! Hopefully your puppy will do well with the new baby. Ours adjusted just fine, they mostly stay away from him when he comes at them. They’ve learned quickly! And one of my dogs just loves to give him kisses. Drives me crazy, but it’s very sweet of him. Especially since he was the one who got most of the attention, and now his time on my lap has decreased. But I still try to have some special moments with my dogs, because I still love them just as much and I want them to know that. They after all were my first babies!
sorry, got off track. I hope everything else is going good with you. Baby moving a lot is a good thing.
Afm, my little guy is a moving machine! He’s crawling every where, climbing and pulling himself up on anything he can!! He gets so proud of himself when he does it, very cute to see and I’m one proud mama! Still deciding what to do about a possible number 2.
One thing I feel I should share about having a baby is how much it can effect your relationship. No one prepared me for that. I know everyone’s relationship is different, but know that a baby can bring stress to your relationship. My hubby and I had to have a very deep, serious conversation about our different parenting styles and are working on finding a common ground. We never bickered or got on each others nerves so much until we had our son. We are good, because we are talking about it. So if after your babies, you feel a change in your relationships, talk to your husband.
I hope everyone is doing great and staying positive!
