    Happy Easter everyone!

    Also, a question that was raised for me from a local FB post... is telling kids that the Easter bunny is real a thing? Some mom posted asking for stuff to fill her son's Easter basket because she "didn't want this to be the year he finds out the Easter bunny isn't real," granted she also mentioned that her son is 12, which made it that much stranger to me. Maybe this is a UO but I just found the concept pretty strange and had never actually heard of it, but it made me wonder if it's a pretty normal practice out there.

  • Happy Easter! 

    Not sure about bout the whole waster bunny thing. I mean I suppose it's like Santa. By 12 my guess is they should have it figured out by then. We still "believe" in Santa in my family but it's definitely more the spirit of Santa and what it means. 

    Random: We went to Target last night to get some groceries (spend $50 get a $10 gc) and they had apparel on sale (spend $50 get $10 off). Yep baby got some new footie PJs! Realized after going through the clothes we have that he barely had any NB or 0-3 month lol I think we thought that's what everyone was going to get us for the shower, but we barely got any clothes!

  • @vrj0522 I believe that many people have the Easter Bunny being "real" a thing. We don't and none of my friends do either. The Easter Bunny is probably my least favorite character. We don't do Santa or the Tooth Fairy either, so meh. 

    Happy Easter Everyone! My parents air conditioning went out so I will just be melting today  :D

    Pregnancy cravings are THE WORST. I'm allergic to dairy, but I really wanted buttermilk biscuits this morning when we were out to breakfast so I said f**k it and ate 2 giant ones. Now I'm sick, and I had a million things to do today. I just don't learn.

    vrj0522, super weird that the Easter bunny being real is a thing to a 12 year old. I guess my UO is that I don't think kids really need to believe any of it is real - Easter bunny, Santa, whatever. I mean, if they believe it's real on their own, that's cool... but trying to preserve it until they're teenagers is just awkward. 
    Yes to all of this!!!

    And I'm sorry you're not feeling well. Hopefully it passes quickly!

  • I'm not a fan of the Easter bunny but DS's do believe in him and think he comes to deliver baskets on Easter. If it werent for the mall and a few movies I don't think they would've ever thought about him being "real". We don't make it a huge deal. He comes and brings baskets and hides eggs and that's the end of it.

  • @starphish18 yup, all of those symptoms sounds like your body's getting ready. I was at the back of the pack last time as well and looking back, it was nice to hear what may or may not happen to be on the lookout.

    @absbubbs I don't know why people feel the need to talk about size ESPECIALLY at YOUR shower. I'm glad you let it be known....

    @LilMissCrafty Glad you got your big ticket items at your shower. To those that didn't attend, their loss not yours. And, I'm sorry to say, your mom repeated the same offense of trying to steal your spotlight but it sounds like you aren't too bothered by it.

    DD believes in Easter Bunny and in Santa. We explain the meaning of the holidays, but like this "magical" part of the holiday too. We do try to make gifts from them not their biggest gifts, those come from us. We realize that we are lucky to be able to afford decent gifts, but just not every kid gets big gifts, and we might not be able to afford them all the time.

    I got some free Avent bottles but I'm getting a Medela pump through my insurance. Do you have to use the same brand of bottles with your pump? I'd rather not buy some kind of conversion thing because I just want things to be easy, so do I need to go get Medela bottles? Or do I pump into a Medela bottle or bag and just dump it into whatever bottles I want to use? 

    I'm so clueless about pumping.

    I never used the Medela bottles for actual feeding. I pumped into the Medela bottles (your pump will probably come with 2-4 bottles which 4 was enough for one day of pumping for me). And then at the end of the day I would distribute my pumped milk into freezer bags for storage. Then use the milk from the freezer bags to pour into my playtex bottles. Or you could skip the freezer bags and pour into your bottles you'll be using at the end of the day if your planning on using the milk within the next day or two. 

    Check out the Pumping thread we had going! We discussed different storage options.

    Thanks, @hp_momma! That's what I needed to know, and I will check out the pumping thread. I avoided it until now because for some reason it all feels really overwhelming.

  • Like Santa and the tooth fairy, the Easter bunny is "real" at our house until our kids figure it out. And even then, they'll likely get stuff from them. From a parenting perspective, I think the Easter bunny is so much easier than Santa. Smaller gifts and less work. Plus the bunny always hides the Easter basket so you have to search for it. He's so mischievous. 
    This is how I grew up and my plan.

  • @kat81 I could have written your whole post, anterior placental and all! It's so weird because I am quite tall, so I feel like it's impossible for LO to be smooshing my pelvis and lungs at the same time, but here we are. I'm not mentally/emotionally prepared, but my body is def tired of being pregnant.

    This. Just this, I am not overly tall but have a longer torso and I'm so sure that DS was never this uncomfortable.
    I just wish this LO would stop scratching my cervix, wtf is up with that! Keep your damn finger nails away child!

    @kat81, @llenadevida900, and @PartiallyDomesticated I'm right there with you all. I have a short torso so I think it's easier for me to feel him high and low at the same time. The only real problem I have with all of that is when he somehow gets high enough to cause the pain in my upper back making me not able to breathe well, have hot flashes, feel like running to the Ba'ath room, and ultimately having a long contraction (or what I've come to believe is one). This happened again last night much like the time a couple of weeks ago and I ended up going to my dr's office. Hard to believe that's what's going on but I'm not a dr so what do I know!? I see my dr tomorrow and I'm going to tell her about it again. It wears me out and I'm so sore the next morning. I told my boss I'd try to do a half day today or just work from home all day if possible. Ugh...are we there yet?

    When something irritates my uterus, I often get a contraction. So sometimes the baby causes it with an extreme motion. Otherwise it is a child feeling the belly. Or I have to pee, so maybe the bladder is pushing it.
