    I think weekly appointments is a great idea! Some of the weekly ticker changes aren’t even happening anymore. 
  • Options
    Full agreement on appt threads. I never got into the ticker threads!

    Just thinking of coffee-saur. Haven’t seen anything from her and I know she was dealing with lots of uncertainty a couple of weeks ago. Has anyone heard from her and how she’s holding up?
  • Options
    @rabtaido1214 I have seen a couple of posts from her on Facebook the last couple of days. Nothing much about the baby but she’s been around I think.

    I’m so glad. I should know that but I’m horrible with remembering who is who on Facebook!

    My H is going away on a work trip next week M-Th when I am 37 weeks. He will be in Miami, me in Boston. Very nervous about if I go into labor with him away. I have his mom on speed dial 10 min away but I just can’t beleive he is doing this so late in the game. The trip was supposed to be mid-August but the project was delayed so here we are. I’m think if he explained his situation he could get out of it (although would cause more headaches for him in the end) so I’m partly PO’ed he’s just going and not trying to get off the hook.

    @rabtaido1214 I would be annoyed too. I already told DH that he can’t even go away for a weekend from now until baby is born and I’m only 33 weeks this week. If you do go in to labor, would they be flexible and let him get the next flight home? FX baby stays put until he gets home!

    @rabtaido1214 I agree, I would be pretty anxious about DH being away at this stage, same as Spartan I have put my foot down at any away plans for DH for that reason. Chances are it will all work out, but maybe have a plan for him to get on a flight back ASAP in case anything happens? 

  • Options
    I would have been pretty terrified if I woke up to what I did the other night and DH was not home. I probably would have been one to shrug off a trip in the past this late but after that experience I can’t say I wouldn’t be nervous about a late trip. 
  • Options
    I would also be anxious about him being so far away. DH wants to go to an event on Sept 15 (I'll be 36 weeks) and I was really unsure about it, even though its only about 2-3 hours away. We also found out last night that SS will be crowned "Teeny King" as part of the camping club his mom's side is part of (Dh used to also be a member). Its Sept 22nd and about 1.5 hours away, we decided not to go just because of the drive, how far along I'll be, and that the event itself will be short. I'm also kinda freaking out my mom will be 4.5 hours away on Mackinac Island that same weekend.

    My H has a work retreat in a couple weeks for 2 nights. I'll be between 36-37 wks. It's a couple hours away in the mountains. His boss said he should try to be there, but of course if something isn't right then it's fine. So I just said we'll see how I feel when it gets closer. Or maybe he'll go for part of it, but not the whole thing. We'll kind of play it by ear. I don't think I'll have a problem with it, but a lot can change in a couple weeks. 

    I selfishly just don't want to have to fully take care of the animals, take the trash out, etc. while he's gone.... 
  • Options
    Yes, he already said he can get the next flight back if something happens, but we’re talking 3.5 hours for the flight time alone, never mind waiting until whenever said next flight is and then knowing Boston it probably requires a half hour minimum from the airport to hospital. Very unpleased. I thought I had put my foot down, but apparently that didn’t hold much weight even though I feel like I weigh a ton. He is so stubborn and really can’t be told what to do.
  • Options
    @rabtaido1214 that's do frustrating. Fingers crossed for you that baby waits until he gets home! What ever happened to family first work second??
    If it were me and I went into labor while he was gone and he missed it? Oh he wouldnt hear the end of it.
  • Options
    DH was talking about the thing he wants to go to on the 15th again. He still had it in his mind he was going to go. I reminded him he has an event Saturday AM (a cancer walk for his mom who's an ovarian cancer survivor) and a memorial service in the afternoon. Add in that we also have SS. I thought we had agreed before he wasn't going.

    Great to hear from you @coffee-saur! Glad you’re doing well. 
  • Options
    Not sure if I should start the daily ticker change... I thought we were just doing the weekly appt thread, or if we want to keep up the ticker change as well?
  • Options
    @hannaht8516 seems to be your call! I didn't start Mon bc I thought we were moving to appt thread, too.
  • Options
    @hannaht8516 I started wednesdays but I forgot we were doing the weekly's now 
  • Options
    @hannaht8516 such a win!  last pregnancy I destroyed my recycling garbage can putting my feet on it.... oops

    @KFrob I used to put my feet up on the computer tower that sat under my desk, since we upgraded to the towerless computers, I haven't had anything. I kind of miss it.

    I brought a milk crate in years ago for putting my feet up.

    Today I got my first “when are you due?” “With one baby?” comment...

    My H is also going away on a work trip on Monday for 3 days. They bought him an open ticket just in case. But of course I’m nervous. I’ve been sort of naively assuming baby will be on time or late since I’m a FTM, and that it will be a long Labor,but I’m learning that there are no certainties here.
  • Options
    Tomorrow is dh’s last trip more than 90 minutes away. He hesitated going but I told him to go (it’s a video game convention) since the end of fun stuff is approaching! I’m driving by myself to my sprinkle on Sunday, also about 90 min away. I’m looking forward to alone time!
  • Options
    My husband is going away next week too. I’m not happy about it. I’ll be turning 37 weeks and he will be all the way in Miami. Let’s hope we all make it through next week with babies staying put!

    It is crazy long, and a bunch of posts and users have been deleted, you can still get the gist of it tho. It is insanity!!

    I kind of assumed it was due to the slowness over here, but maybe it's just coincidence
