Awww Karma - you're so sweet. you can't talk all sappy to a bunch of pregnant girls....you will make us cry. I agree though, I'm not sure what I would have done w/o the support of the girls here.

 

I think James is finally understanding BDW. Through the wedding he thought it was stupid, but now that I can come here and get all my questions answered about our son and learn so much - - he loves it!

I got this from her on Friday. I haven't seen that she's posted any pics either sad.gif

 

Hannah is here, im typing one handed now holding her. She was born at 2:55pm on Wednesday after a relatively painless delivery, thanks to an early epidural! It was such an amazing experience. I only pushed for 10 minutes and after 3 contractions worth of pushing she was out! She was bigger than we thought. She was 7 pounds 7 ounces (our wedding date was 7-7) kinda neat coincidence and 19 1/2 inches long. She looks just like Steve! I'm so exhausted so i will try and post pics soon after a little rest.

Hi Girls! How is everyone feeling? I hope everyone is feeling well. Thanks again for all the well wishes the past week!

 

Lisa- It's Tuesday so I'm guessing you have a Dr.'s appointment today! LOL...can you tell I'm excited for Luke to get here. How have you been feeling? Any contractions/cramps lately? Let us know what the Dr. says when you get back!

 

 

As for me, I'm still doing pretty well. I slept in today so I feel better than I have been. Recovery has been pretty good. I have only been taking Motrin and I'm not taking much of it anymore. It's the sleep deprivation that is hard, but I think my body is adjusting and it's totally worth it!

 

I do have to admit though, I miss being pregnant a little bit! Steve and I had said Hannah was going to be our last, but we have both mentioned in the past week the possibility of just one more. :-)

I'm glad your recovery has been easy Karma. Im so done with being pregnant, but I know once I deliver, I will miss being pregnant too.

 

I went to the doc today and Luke is still pretty comfy in there. Still not dialated and cervix still closed. He's still saying he's pretty big and not sure if I will be able to deliver vag.

 

We did schedule an induction for 11/24. My due date is 11/19, so I'm hoping Luke will get scared and want to come before we have a mandatory evacuation...lol!!

 

I'm still feeling really good. No more cramps and i've been having very few BH.

 

I just had my mom and 2 aunts over and we all cleaned the house. They wanted to do it for me before Luke arrived. It was so nice of them!!

Karma, I'm glad you're having such a good recovery! I can't wait to see more pics of Hannah.

 

Lisa, I can't believe you're so close!!! I'm antsy already, so I can't imagine how you're feeling. That was so sweet of them to clean your house. I think I'll have to mention that to my mom in a few months...lol!

 

I had my 25 week appointment yesterday. I gained 4 lbs. in the past month, which the doctor said is perfect. I'm right on track to gain about 30 (give or take a few), which I'm very happy with. I did the gestational diabetes test and it was negative. I've been lightheaded lately and my cbc showed that I'm slightly anemic, so I need to start taking iron. Other than that, no problems. The baby is on growing on schedule and seems to be doing perfect. I have another appt. in 4 weeks and then I need to start going every 2 weeks. Oh, I went and registered on Sunday which was overwhelming but exciting.

Lisa- That was exactly how I was feeling last week too. Just a few more days. I am really glad that your doctor didn't have you schedule a c-section and will let you try first. After Hannah came out a whole pound more than what we thought she was going to be, I really don't have much faith in estimates. I'm crossing my fingers that he is the perfect size for your pelvis! (Ok, that sounded kind of weird, but you know what I mean) LOL!

 

Lizz- It sounds like you are gaining great! I gained around that amount too. The good news is that if you plan on breastfeeding the weight really does melt away quickly! Yay, for almost going to 2 week appointments. Once you start going every 2 weeks the time really flies by after that.

Karma, CONGRATS!!! Hannah is beautiful! Every time I've been on here lately, I've been holding a baby- and we all know how fun it is to try to get a complete thought out typing one-handed!!! So happy everything went well for you!

 

 

Has anyone heard from Lisahuh.gif I'm wondering if little Luke decided it was time??

Nope - he's being stubborn like his mommy. I'm feeling very achy today though. We have a surprise party to go to tonight for James' dad. Sooo not looking forward to that!

 

Here's a pic I took last week - 39 weeks.

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
