@irisheyes81 your right no matter what pregnant women get
commented on waaaay to much. I guess
infertility taught me not to ask about having kids. Pregnancy has taught me not to talk about to
pregnant women and also not to comment about name choices!
@hottietoddy you are doing great. You have had it a lot harder this pregnancy
than me. I never really know my limits
though I enjoy keeping busy a little too much.
DW and I agree that my job just may not be compatible with our new life
and I will probably start looking for something else, hopefully closer to
home. Not necessarily a career change
but something similar in a new place where I only do that job instead of where
I have established myself here as a bit of a she can take care of it all
type. Regarding the waiting room we won’t
have anyone holding up shop in there, just the thought of someone waiting on me
stresses me out. There will be no social
media announcements of the birth until baby is in his or her going home outfit
and headed out the door to avoid hospital visits. Immediate family and besties will get
called/texted. Besties plan to come in
the first two weeks we are home. The
only visitors we are allowing in the hospital and only after we have transferred
to the post-partum room are my parents, my MIL, BIL & his longtime
girlfriend (which is actually a nice surprise he’s going to be in Chicago for
the month of august doing filming he normally lives in LA), and my work friend
who threw me the shower. We would also
allow my FIL (but he’s in Mexico), my SIL (but she will be in Georgia, long
drama ridden story), and our niece (but she is with her dad for his 3 weeks of summer
time and he won’t let her come see the new baby…this crushes her, she’s so
excited. He’s a giant d-bag, DW tried to
nicely call and convince him and he had the audacity to say if its that important
that she see the baby we should schedule a c-section during SIL’s parenting
time then hung up on her. Some people
are out of this world. And you know who suffers?
My niece. I honestly don’t care if my niece sees the baby on day 1 or three weeks from then but she does. Ugh it just makes me so mad. Are
you excited or nervous to have your induction date?
@lablover78 I agree sooooo close! But why are the days getting longer? These last two weeks of pregnancy put all the
prior 2WWs to shame!
@holls214 and @lablover78 thanks for the tip on the spotting
I did have a tiny bit last night so it was nice to see your comments.
@irisheyes81 word on the separation stuff be it at birth or
at a border. I have waaaay to much to
say on this so it’s best not to get me started.
But all of it heartbreaking and when I do complain about my unpaid leave
I feel like an a-hole because I have it so so so much better than so many. I just don’t understand why things are the
way they are why are so many benefits tied to the company you work for, and
company benefits can be so volatile even from year to year. Though a handful of states have started
making paid leave requirements so it’s a start…a small start that helps only
some but it is something. Sigh.
