Re: Grad check in!!!

  • Beautiful photo, and I love that you're already ready for another. I would like a second child after this, but I worry that I'll be so overwhelmed and exhausted with the first that I won't want to do it as soon as I should. (My dr already told me I'll need to start trying soon after the first, but I haven't asked him how soon that is.) Your positive words about recovery and life with the new baby make all of this a little less intimidating. Enjoy Antonin!

  • @Goldsgirl9 I'm so glad you're doing well!  Sorry to hear about the choking, though. My nephew had to have surgery on his esophagus the day after he was born and I wouldn't babysit him by myself because of the choking. It was scary. (He's a twin, though, so babysitting with my mom worked best anyway.)

    I love the idea of doing a Facebook group. I was already doubting that I'd keep up with the Bump after the baby comes. I was thinking about friending people on FB.

    I haven't been to Orange Theory in almost two weeks. I've had so many legitimate excuses, but the guilt is still killing me. I think I'm going to freeze my membership on June 20th, 6 weeks before my due date.  --You look great, by the way. Love the family photo!

  • @Goldsgirl9 Looking fantastic and congratulations on making it thus far! My sister's baby had a lot of reflux and we had a lot of challenges that came with that, he got a lot better when he got on meds, so yay for meds that can help! FX that it will only get easier and easier for you. 
    I got off facebook 3 months ago and I have been loving not having it in my life, but I'll get back on or make an alter ego FB for you ladies ;)
    All the light and love for things getting easier and for the whole family staying healthy!
  • Great update, @Goldsgirl9 -- love the photo! I'm trying to book a photographer right now and am realizing that even 4 months out might be too late! 

    Sorry to hear about the reflux, but I absolutely agree with your "roll with it" attitude! I absolutely plan to be more flexible and more adaptable this time around. Baby will sleep when baby sleeps, etc. I wish I hadn't spent so much time sweating every little decision the first time around!

    also good with a FB group. Not sure I'll do one with my BMB, but with you all--yes. :)

  • @CarrieandRoy hi there! I miss OTF and can't wait to be cleared next week although I hear no abs,planks,etc fit some time. I have the lovely c section over hang and am hating life. Levi and I just starting walking now that he'll let me leave the house. I just need to get my eating on track. I just joined ww mobile so that should assist. Don't feel guilty, go based on how you feel but I will say working out as much as I did made a huge difference in this pregnancy vs my last. 

    Yay for a Facebook! Who is willing to be the admin? Unfortunately once I go back to work my bumping will be nearly non existent and the site is blocked at work. 

    Thanks @Sporty1216 and @createillumination ;
    currently sitting at the hospital waiting to be called for his test. And yes, you need to book Photog ASAP! We booked ours 4-5 months out without an issue.

  • I like the idea of a fb group. I'm so excited for all the graduates and soon to be graduates, but sad thinking about how quiet this board will be getting soon!

  • @Goldsgirl9 ;love the photo of your family! I'm totally down with the idea of a FB group. I lurk this board now, and its a bummer not participating :(

    I could admin it...

  • I don't know how it works either @sporty1216! We're definitely old now! Love the group name too

    lickastickSporty1216
  • I can poke around a bit and see if I can figure it. I think a closer group that we can search for and request entry into would work to start, and then it can transition to private? 

  • Okay. Creating a group is super easy. BUT, I can't create it unless I have one person to add. If anyone feels brave and wants to be THAT person, PM me with your facebook name and I can try it. Please post here that you pm'd me. I don't know how to get notifications. Haha.

    Pm'd you back, @lillebowski23 and @mthoomom   Maybe this isn't as easy as I thought! Haha. 

    ETA: if anyone has actually done this before, feel free to jump in! I have no investment in admin-ing!
