Weekly Questions ~ Week of 11/26

Re: Weekly Questions ~ Week of 11/26

  • Okay this is a silly question but I'm a huge overthinker so bare with me...  I'm wanting to order Christmas cards soon. I usually do photo cards with everything pre-printed on them and normally are signed "Love, The Smith Family - DH name, Ashley and DS name".  Are y'all including baby on Christmas cards or waiting until they're actually here - next Christmas? I feel like I should acknowledge her in some way since she'll be here within 2 months of Christmas but it feels weird adding her to that part, I think.

    We left her off of the Christmas cards. Mainly because we didn’t think about adding her. Lol. 
    We did get a 4 family Christmas ornament

  • @k318 Yes! Totally feeling the symptoms earlier. My back and sciatic have been killing me for weeks & I don’t think that started till mid 3rd tri last time. My body definitely seems to be taking more of a beating 
  • @ashleyf911 we added him,  but only because it's been just the 2 of us and our fur babies for so long....

    @ashleyf911 I always add the baby I am pregnant with when signing cards from the moment I have announced or people know.  Once they are in existence it just feels right for me.  However, I usually just sign “Baby D” (last name) and I don’t actually put their real name down until after they are born.

  • @ashleyf911 I put me, my DH, our puppy, then  "and Baby (Coming March 2018)". I didn't do a social media announcement, and everyone who gets our Christmas card already knows about the baby, but it felt like a bit of a proclamation. I too was iffy about doing it, but friends told me they thought it cute.

  • @ashleyf911 I just ordered ours earlier this week and I signed it "The _____s, MH's name and my name (Dog's name, too!)"

    I was thinking last night that it probably is going to look terrible that we included our dog but not the baby haha we did include the baby's sonogram picture on the back of the card though with "Baby _____ due March 2018!"

  • We did new years cards with a photo of the two of us w obvious baby bump and on the back said sometime like: hope you're looking forward to an exciting new year. We'll be expanding our family in March! Love the <hyphenated last names> Family. And then each signed our first names. Fur baby was left out b/c he refused to be photographed. and extended family don't really know him.

  • I won’t add the baby this year. I’m actually pretty emotional about the girls having their last Christmas without a little brother.  A big age gap really messes with your head!

  • @Gingermom15 @cford08 @DDRRT1982 @gh515 @stlbuckeye132 thanks ladies! I think I'll find a way to incorporate her, either by signing it or with a little note on the back with what we've been up to this year.  :)

  • @amanning2011 I don't know about that but my chiropractor does wonders when he adjusts my wrists if you need some relief.

  • @stlbuckeye132 I don't think I saw anyone answer your questions about the birthing classes... I think that should give you enough time! Ours was all day for Saturday and Sunday one weekend and it included everything except the carseat portion which we had planned to go to early July (I was due early August). We ended up missing the carseat thing because of an issue that came up and I was in L&D but it wasn't a big deal. I do think with almost a month difference you should be fine! And if baby comes earlier than that you will figure it out!

  • @amanning2011 Between work (QA and simple programming) and home I'm on the computer almost all day. I've already complained to my doctor about carpal tunnel because it's gotten to the point that my arm goes numb occasionally. As of right now my doctor has me wearing a night wrist brace when it acts up, which seems to be working. She hasn't said anything about restricting work.

  • Alright I am planning on putting an Amazon order in this week... I know these have been discussed but KT tape or belly band... or both? 
  • @npkat my vote is Kt tape(I just hate taking it off.) I have never tried a belly band.

    @npkat I personally think the KT tape works better for me because I can use it to get relief for more places than I think a belly band would help with. I don’t have a belly band though so...

    ETA: @megpeg, after I take it off, I put mil of magnesia on the areas where it was and it feels so much better. I heard about it from my other BMB.

  • @bb3vj3n YES - my waddling is extreme when I get out of bed...super noticeable. The back pain is legit already...

  • Sooo...I went to my hubby's holiday party last night and danced the night away! Was a bit easy on myself of course...I figured out my limit. Overnight, while sleeping, I woke up to two of my toes not moving and zero feeling which went to the top of my foot and totally freaked me out. I woke up at 3:30am, and massaged my toes and foot, walked around the house and finally some feeling came back. Scary!

    Where did I go wrong? I should have placed a pillow under my feet to keep my feet elevated even more? Couldn't do that since I'm sleeping on my left side. Was in a low heel, comfy shoe when dancing. I don't want to refrain from dancing...I love dancing. But also don't want that scary feeling again.

    Was a great night though! :)
