The preggo one here... just weighing in. Couldn't help but comment on Braydon's post from earlier today (see post below this one)...
- #4 sounds really good to me right now. I could really really really go for some good chicken parm. But the drive to Brooklyn isn't worth it to me.
- No offense to all of you who have gone this route but... as far as I'm concerned... #5 is absolutely positively out of the question. I'm way sore and way achy with lots of pressure 'down there.' No other comment on that. Just not going to happen. No matter what. No way Jose. Not that desperate. Not 'gonna happen. Period.
- And re: #13 -- again, no offense to all of you who swear by it.. but... um, no. I'm having a hard enough time already with the whole concept of machine operated pumping. Yes, we have a breast pump. Yes, I plan on using it. P.B. (post birth). Braydon's read the instruction manual cover to cover. If all goes as planned I'm gonna do it - for the sake of B, K, O, and Baby Sister (I/we dearly want Papi and Big Brothers to be able to feed her)... but pumping is not happening until she's here to (hopefully) motivate me to plug in and hook up. Period.
- My favorite question I get all the time: "Have you tried walking?" ~~ Uh, yeah. I have wild high octane just-turned-4 year old twin boys... I haven't ever stopped walking/running/jumping/pulling/grabbing/scurrying/bending/leaning/climbing/chasing!?!!!
My goal all along has been to go as natural as possible. I'm still clinging to that goal. I'm holding out as long as possible to use induction only as a last resort. Luckily I've got my doctors and my husband on my side with that. I am still hopeful that Baby Sister will come when she's ready -- in her own sweet time. And as the matriarch of this testosterone filled house... I 'gotta admit: There's a part of me that's kinda enjoying watching my three guys go nutso having to wait for this girl (who clearly has a mind of her own)! Get used to it my fellas -- I have a feeling she's 'gonna have all three of you wrapped around her pretty little finger (and waiting for/on her) for many years to come!!!!
