Re: Thankful Tuesday

  • This week I'm going to have to go with the cliche answer: I'm thankful for my hubby.

    He's been so amazing this whole journey and lately with the countdown to baby getting so close he's really stepped up his game. Today he rubbed my back as I did some birthing ball exercises, he rubs my feet every night before bed, and he always makes sure to pick up my favorite foods [aka yummy mcgriddle for breakfast this AM!].

    He's been great setting everything up for baby but this past week he's really stepped up his game to get my huge hunniedo list completed. And thanks to him the nursery is officially complete and the baby's bathroom is 90 percent done!! Yay!!

    Having a husband that works a job he dislikes for a family he loves.  

    Although we will be moving to a bigger city, closer to family, with more job opportunity. So I'm hoping he'll get a job he likes.  

     

  • Today I'm thankful for dh and our relationship. Throughout everything going on, he has never missed an ob appointment or ultrasound, and has been nothing short of amazing this entire pregnancy. He loves me and Tyler so incredibly much and is just so excited to be a father. I would not be able to do this without his love and constant support, and I am so very thankful for him.

    Also thankful for lo deciding to stay put for the time being and for my awesome ob who did everything possible to stop labor from progressing. Hopefully I'll be able to go home later today, but I guess we'll see what happens.

  • Cliche answer here as well, my husband. He has been beyond amazing since I have been on bedrest. He goes above and beyond what I ask him to do and will even wake up (its hard not to as I am as quiet as a herd of elephants) to help me out of bed so I can pee and while I am peeing he will run and make me a snack. I know that sounds random but thats my MO. Get up, pee, make a snack, back to bed.

    I am also thankful I have an awesome OB. He was on call last week and had to go to the hospital right before my appointment so it ended up being cancelled last week. He called and apologized (not that I was mad or anything like that) and has called twice since to make sure I was still doing ok and if I wanted to be seen before my next appointment (I go weekly so it just made me giggle).

  • Today is full of cliches... I'm thankful for my fi who makes everyday better. I'm thankful for my parents who weren't too excited ab baby at first, but now they already can't picture life without her. And finally, as much as they drive me bonkers, I am thankful for the in laws. They do care ab us, and I know we should be happier that we have them, instead of annoyed.
    Also, I'm thankful for captain crunch cereal.
  • Looks like this might be a Thankful for SO Tuesday. Smile

    I am so thankful for DF. He very unwillingly went to a Lamaze class with me last Saturday and later admitted he "enjoyed it". He kept his promise to quit smoking cigarettes before baby girl's arrival, and even with working long hard hours here lately.. He understands I'm feeling very uncomfortable and does everything he can to make me feel "better".

     

    I'm also thankful my mom is going to be back in town. She's been gone for the past month and I really miss her and now that I know she will be home later today, I don't feel as nervous about going into labor while shes 12 hours away. I know, I still have 3 weeks.. but pregnancy anxiety gets the best of me sometimes.

  • I am thankful for DB! Without him I would be a huge, crying, crazy, pregzilla mess! He always seems to talk me off the ledge when I just can't handle something anymore. He is just great and will make the best dad!

    I'm so thankful for our little girl and that she is heathy in there and kicking away! I love her so much already. It's amazing how much you can love someone without ever meeting or seeing their little face yet! I'm so thankful for my little family that will soon be complete!

    I'm forever thankful for the NICU nurses who are taking such amazing care of our little Tessa!

    Edit: OK, I'm I'll add DH to this too! lol. He was my rock last Wednesday when I went into labor and through my csection. I know he was just as scared as I, but he never lost step in taking care of me. And over the last week, he has done everything for me...will miss him when he returns to work tomorrow.

  • I'm thankful that DH and I have talked and decided that in a few years we will probably move near my family and away from Georgia and my crazy ILs!!! We will be moving for our kids who have a huge family and many cousins up there. They will never have cousins here or any family anywhere near their age. Of course a lot of things have to fall into place in the next few years and DH will probably have to get a new job in Chicago but I'm so excited about the possibility of moving!

    Its totally ok and normal (IMO) to feel both for your ILs. I love mine to death and know that no matter what, if we need something they will be there but the little things they do (and sometimes big) that really get under my skin. At the end of the day I wouldnt trade them off for anything.

  • I'm going to follow the trend of this Tuesday and say I'm super thankful for DH.  Although he has his moments (as we all do), he has really stepped up the past few weeks and has been super sweet and helpful.

    I am also super thankful for our basement, which has been my savior in this heat since our house does not have AC.  I literally am in the basement almost all day (when I'm not trying to clean) aside from coming upstairs to make dinner.

    Lastly, I am very very thankful for ice cream!

  • DH's BFF (ha) is getting married in two weeks.  He has been texting him daily marriage advice.  He let me hear some of them and they're actually really good.  It's interesting to remember the things that have led us to these tips as he's reading them to me.  We've come a long way in 5 years!

    Thankful that I work inside with AC.  For those that don't, I am so, so sorry!

  • I'm thankful for a SIL always willing to help out.  the painter is starting today on our basement and we both work so she is house sitting.  She also hosted our shower and has given us tons of things for the LO already.

     

    I'm thankful for technology and my sweet grandparents.  My 85 year old grandparents are learning the computer and I got my first e-mail from my grandma last night.  it was the cutest thing ever.  they are in texas so I don't get to see them or talk to them as often as I'd like.

  • My husband. We had a bit of a scare with our little guy yesterday and my husband dropped everything at work, drove 20 minutes and ran up six flights of stairs..the elevator wasn't fast enough for him..to be by our side. Fortunately everything turned out fine and we were able to go home that night. I also couldn't feel baby move until hubby got there. Once he heard his daddy's voice - he was moving like crazy!
  • I am thankful for a day off today with DS. We are mainly going to lounge around the house and may run to the store. Also thankful for my job. It's a great company to work for with a lot of perks and pretty good maternity leave options.  

     

     

  • I'm thankful to have such an amazing best friend! She came over last night after work to help DH and I clean and organize. She's also going to drop off some items we cleared out of the closets for donation. It meant so much to have her come over and help! DH and I literally have 2 things left to do before LO arrives thanks to my friend helping out yesterday!

  • Thankful that I've finally found the right amount of fans (3) and AC units (2) that allow me to be cool enough to sleep. Thankful that DH is willing to swap cars during this heat wave, since his commute is 5 minutes and mine is 1/2 hr, his AC works and mine doesn't. Thankful that DH is wonderful in every way including running a rush hour errand so I could satisfy my Teddy Grahams craving and settle my upset stomach, encouraging me to go for the giant box of Cinnamon Toast Crunch, and constantly filling up my water glass. My hero :)
    Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars.

  • I'm incredibly thankful to have reached 37 weeks on Saturday. I know we're not completely in the clear and things can always go wrong but it's such a giant relief to know that LO can come any time and will likely be just fine.

    I'm also thankful for DH for talking me down off my ledge of freakouts that this baby is coming soon!

    ETA: I'm sure I'll be incredibly thankful for the pedicure that is in my very near future!

    I guess I am following the trend....
    I am super thankful for my DF. Yesterday, when we found out Baby Girl is still breech and the words "scheduled c section" came up, I lost it. He let me cry and listened to my concerns, but then as always, he calmed me down, reminded me we will get through anything, and took me
    To Cold Stone for ice cream. He is the most amazing man and is going to be a wonderful father. I definitely couldn't do this pregnancy or this life without him.

  • I am thankful for my parents. The last 2 months with them have been a blessing. They have taken such good care of me and my DD. I can't explain how amazing it is to see the love my father has for my little girl. My mother and I always had a strained relationship at the best of times but I can honestly say that we're friends now.

    Thanks! He is groggy and milking it, but I am relieved it is over. It ended up being much more in-depth than planned, and I'm very thankful for the place I work helping and being flexible.

  • I'm thankful LO is healthy and doing very well in there.  Seeing her at the u/s on sunday was amazing, esp. watching her lungs "breathe" and her mouth moving.

    I'm also thankful that DH's hard work paid off and he got his promotion yesterday.

  • Today I am thankful my symptoms of pre-e have not gotten worst. I ended up in L&D on Sunday after having contractions for 14 hours, high blood pressure, excessive swelling of my face, legs, and hands. I was so dizzy and nauseated. Baby had also stopped moving. After 2 hours of being on the monitors, the contractions stopped and baby started moving again. What a relief. The nurse was about the call the doc in. Saw my OBGYN yesterday and the protein levels in my urine aren't rising so he told me to take it easy. As much as I just want to hold my baby in my arms and know everything is okay, he/she is not ready to come out and it is still too early.

    I will follow suit and also say how thankful I am for DH. Especially after having such a rough week last week. We decided to take the weekend and focus on ourselves. He really opened up about his feelings of depression and how he has been taking everything out on me. He really regrets the big move we made for our careers last year and expressed his feelings of returning to his old job and moving back to be close to my family. He contacted his old boss and I really hope this works out for us. We would be much happier.
