  • The new "style" of newborn photography creeps me out. Little naked babies posed and contorted makes me feel some kind of way. Also dressed up in little hats and props kind of freaks me out!

    Although I don't post that much and I'm more of a lurker Myself, i can't help but side eye all the birth announcements coming from board members with two posts total. I still congratulate the poster, but come on do you really think anyone cares about your baby being born when you haven't said two words to anyone over the last 9 months? Post it to your FB page.

  • We're getting induced tonight at 8 and starting pitocin tomorrow because LO is nearly 2 weeks overdue... Not only am I sad that we have to induce and nervous for the whole experience, I'm going to miss being pregnant. It has been a really nice 9 (almost 10...) months making a human, and I'm in no real rush to deliver. Apparently, neither is LO.

  • I hate the idea of "graduation" from everything. Preschool, kindergarten, junior high, etc. It's ridiculous.

    I agree. I love announcements from posters I know and who contribute, but I don't get why a stranger would come here and post a birth story.

    Thanks JANCANDANCE!

    I'm tired of parents with kids expecting me to go on the outside part of the sidewalk when I pass them because their kids are there. My kid is more vulnerable than yours--he's not out yet, and my balance sucks, and I'm clearly pregnant, and you're not! (Especially if you are male.) I will stay on the inside, thanks, and I'm better at playing Sidewalk Chicken, so I win. 

    One of the reasons I want to breastfeed is to lose weight.

    I think push presents are awesome (not that I will get one because DH has no idea what they are and I can't bring myself to tell him). Everyone else in my social circle thinks they're ridiculous but me and makes fun of them regularly, and I haven't said anything.

    You and me both!

  • I wish I had delivered earlier not before 37ish weeks, but being overdue is really starting to bother me. It's just painful and I'm becoming more short tempered.

    The best part is I'll end up with a stupid induction anyway I might as well have had it closer to 40 and been happier.
  • This is probably more suited for Monday but I am mad...

    I was all ready for my induction this morning. We were putting our shoes on to leave 20 Mins before we were supposed to be there and they cancelled.

    I know other babies are being born but to be short staffed when they confirmed ten hours before is infuriating. Grrrr. They should be more organized.

     I think push gifts are awesome too. While I get the whole baby is your gift, who doesn't like to be spoiled by their DH or SO. I think people who think their ridiculous probably don't get them. Flame away- I have my big girl pants on.

  • For the last two days my dh has been able to get things done...me, however, barely got a shower in. I'm sleep deprived, my nips hurt and my house is a disaster. I finally broke down last night to dh and he took care of Tanner while I napped for 2 hours.

    OMG...I would be livid.

    I kind of like the idea of push presents too.  DH said something about getting me something for a push present (I can't believe he knew those words!) but I told him not to because it is silly.  I don't actually think it's silly though and I should have encouraged him.  He owes me!  Stick out tongue

    I sort of think the newborn photos with props are cute!

    And I'm one of those people that likes to celebrate everything....so I think the multi-graduations are cute too. They are graduating a certain phase in their lives. It's worth celebrating.

    I have got another photography related one. The first time I saw the chalkboard bump pictures, I thought they were cute. Not something I would ever do, but cute. But now that I have probably seen hundreds of them between the Bump and some blogs I follow, I kind of roll my eyes every time I see one because I think they are getting a little played out now. With so many people doing them, they are no longer cute and creative to me but instead cliched.

    I really thought I was alone in this. I can't put my finger on what it is about them that creeps me out because I still love seeing all the cute baby pictures, but I would much rather opt for the family photos with newborn.

  • Hmm... personally I like the idea of newborn photos, I'm not super into props, but we had a few for our maternity that I really liked. We keep things pretty simple with photography for us though. On the photography vein though, I think the US has gotten a bit over the top with photography sessions- from newborn to cake smash (1st birthday) to every graduation (which depending on your school setup can get crazy- my nephew will have 6 through undergrad), to birth photography to senior year sessions, to any of the special birthdays (cultural... like bar/bat miztvah, quincenara etc) to engagement to wedding and maternity and new home etc. I love photography and scrapbooking, but I personally don't need every one of those sessions to be an expensive session with a photographer. To each their own though.

  • I wasn't going to post this, but what the he!!, it's definitely an U/O and I'll get flamed, but I don't care and since there has been a lot of talk about it lately....

    I had an elective c/s. I had no desire to go into labor and push a baby out that way.  And the great thing about medicine these days, is I had a choice.  I've seen it too many times where endless hours of pushing ends with an emergency c/s and because of my tiny frame (tall, but super thin), I just didn't want to go that route. And my doctor isn't some quack who just lets everyone do a c/s. She knows I'm a well-educated, women's services RN and was open to me doing what I wanted to do. So that's what we did. I knew from my first appt that I was having a c/s. And I 100% do NOT regret my decision. Yeah the first time out of bed was a b!tch, but it got better each time I got up. Being an RN, I knew what I needed to do and I did it. Got up and peed, walked in the halls, switched to oral pain meds asap. I've had a super easy recovery, no issues, very little pain. And only 4 lbs to go until I'm back at my pre-pregnancy weight and I'm 2.5 weeks PP.  My baby is completely healthy, no issues with her at all, she came out screaming and went straight to recovery with me. 

    Anyways, sorry that's so long. But there's my U/O! ??Flame away.

    I have legit, diagnosed celiac disease and it annoys me because I feel it makes the diet look like a trend rather than something necessary for health reasons.  I want to smack people who think they are so healthy for eating gluten free versions of food (cake mix, bread, etc) but in reality the GF versions are not a healthier alternative.  It is good to have more GF options though.

    Oh me too!!! Everyone in my family (mostly the women) think they are all gluten-intolerant so at family gatherings there are always just as many gluten free options as regular. Luckily my immediate family and most of the men refuse to eat gluten free stuff, so there is always gluten full food when we get together haha
