geminilibra - kidney stones are supposed to be one of the most painful things. I feel horrible for you... have they passed yet?

 

Summer - I love your pics! The middle one is beautiful too.

 

Kelly - boo on failing the test... I am scared of that too. Although I haven't been into sweets much so far. I'm sure that craving will come back though as I'm always a sweet tooth usually.

 

Yay Jenn!!! I just 'came out' on here too. humble.gif

 

We just had our 11w neuchal translucency (sp?) test yesterday. Unfortunately the tech couldn't measure what she had to measure because the baby wasn't big enough yet, so we go back next week.

In a way, it's awesome as I get to see him/her again and this scan was the coolest ever.

It totally blew me away. The baby was moving around like crazy and we could totally make out the head and body and see (somewhat) arms and legs.

 

woot.gif I'm still giddy about it all!

Hello ladies! I've been MIA sad.gif This week has been crazy and I'm so glad it's over! My grandmom passed away on Monday and with the funeral on Wednesday, it's been hectic. I'm handling it pretty well and was mainly concerned about my dad (it's his mom) but, he's handling it well too; or at least putting on a brave face. I'm taking him baby shopping on Sunday to get his mind off things. Otherwise, I'm doing well and growing! Here's my latest belly pic at 35 weeks 1 day. I haven't felt it but it looks like I've grown A LOT!

Bisha, you have a gorgeous prego belly! I love my baby bump but my belly button is like one of those rubber bouncy balls you get out of twenty five cent machines! Looks like you're lucky and still have a nice belly button!

Bisha - sorry to hear about your grandmother hug2.gif It's hard to watch a parent lose one of their parents, but it's so nice for your dad that he has a little grandbaby to look forward to. bunny.gif

 

Your baby bump is so cute!

 

I went out with MIL to a big kids garage sale today and I bought... a high chair. blush2.gif It's our first piece of baby-related furniture. I feel like a dork! I won't even need a high chair for another year. doh.gif Oh well. It's cute and in really good condition.

 

I'm feeling good mostly. A little digestive weirdness today though. Mostly I'm just dying to let people know that I'm pg. It's really been bothering me that I have to hide it for so damn long. DH really wants to wait until we've had the screening results back. Our u/s that screened was supposed to be this Thu, but the baby was too small. Now it's set again for next Wed and I don't know how long before we get results. I just want to shout it out to everyone...

kevsgirl-I hear you I had such a hard time keeping it quiet until we decided to tell people! We tried waiting to make it through the first trimester, just to be safe nothing unspeakable happened...But I couldn't hold it in that long and told a few close friends! We have only had ultrasounds to check up on how babes is doing. We chose not to do any of the other screenings testing for any birth defects.

okay girls this gestational thing is harder than I thought. And Im a emotional wreck. Im never full. I woke up at 5am planning out my day. Of when i have to test and what Im going to eat and where, and and and. its like my brian wont stop about it. Then I was making myseld a salad tonight for lunch tomorrow and I cut my thumb. You would have thought I cut off my thumb the way I started crying. It really didnt hurt that bad it was the principal of one more thing to go wrong. Its going to be a long last few weeks over here. My poor hubby. I already sent out an apology email to all my friends and told them I would understand if they didnt talk to me until after she arrived. Sorry for such a long rant...

Thank you girls for the complements on the belly!! I can't believe how much it's grown! :)

 

kevs girl and Summer - totally understand how you're feeling. I wanted to tell everyone soooo bad. We told family super early, I told my BF after the 1st ultrasound and everyone else not until around 19 weeks.

 

Kelly - so sorry to hear you're not feeling well. I remember having those emotional days and letting hubby and everyone else know to stay away! At least you gave them all a fair warning! :)

 

Well, I'm super duper excited today!! We went baby shopping and bought lots of stuff! My shower was originally scheduled for this Saturday but was moved to next Sat so I just couldn't wait any longer to get the essentials. We got the car seat, a bedding set and other little knick knacks but those two were the major stuff! Check it out:

Thank you! We were actually thinking of a completely different set but fell in love with this one in the store. It's so soft and cuddly:) The nursery is still a work in progress and desperately needs some pictures on the walls but I just couldn't wait to put the sheets in and attach the mobile to see how it all comes together.

    • Hi! I'm from the US (but I've been to the UK 6x- my finance says i'm not allowed to move there! lol) Many resort lines don't offer something like the dress rehearsal, which I think is crazy! It's such a smart idea!  Having been to Mexico so much, I find it so much more comfortable- Yes there are dangers but I don't find it any worse than Philly or NY. It is a country that gets SO MUCH money from the service industry- it literally benefits no one to mess with tourists. Your tip money at the bar is feeding someones family. Not that the DR is any different in that it relies on tourist $, but the vibe is just totally different.  In the DR, they were really very serious about us not leaving the resorts (we did- I don't believe in staying on resorts lol). Once off, we realized why. Now, full disclosure, we went right after the 2010 earthquake, so this was a) some time ago and b) right after a natural disaster. Once we left we just felt immediately uncomfortable. (We even saw a man approaching a goat with  a large gun and the Taxi driver seemed nervous and sped away- poor goat!) I find in Mexico everyone is SO respectful- in the DR I had guys make lewd comments (both from those off the resort, and more disturbingly from workers at the resort), grabbing at me, just generally super disrespectful and not at all comforting. My dad had to kick the room service guy out of our room bc he refused to leave when we asked!  This could have been completely isolated to the staff at our specific resort, but it definitely happened off resort as well. A la Anthony Bourdain, I have always considered myself a traveller, not a tourist, so I have zero interest in staying on a resort the entire time (really I'm not in love with resorts period lol), so for me, if I can't go off resort safely, what business do I have being there at all? Also they  made be throw out my coffee before I got on the plane- the coffee I got at the food court at the gate. I'm holding that grudge LOL. A long story short- it's not on my list of returns. I can honestly say that I'm not sure I would accept an invitation to a wedding in the DR- I think I'd rather save that money and go to Mexico! (or the UK, or Iceland, or just Europe in general lol)  I don't regret going, but I'd sooner go to Mexico if I'm looking for a beach!  That's just me- millions of people go there and have a great time! I guess it really comes down to what type of traveller you are (are you okay with being on a resort and just leaving for excursions)!
    • Hello, thank you so much for this it’s all very helpful.. are you from the UK OR US? ive never been and I probably won’t visit the destination until I get married! Oh my gosh I have looked at your resort it is beautiful!! my family have been to the Dominican.. can I ask why you didn’t find it as safe?   Thanks again 
    • Hi! Well, I stumbled on this forum, and then when I realized it was run by a travel agency (while being really impartial- the fact that there are reviews for OTHER agencies was a good sign!) I didn't look any further! Their website, where you can fill out a contact form:  https://www.wrighttravelagency.com/ Babs actually sent me an email on a Sunday (she had been out of the office on Friday) so that's how we started- I was so impressed right off the bat! You may not get Babs, but I can only imagine that the entire office is amazing! We're getting married at Azul Riveria Cancun (formerly Sensatori). We chose it because we have kids coming. We actually just went down for the Brides Dress Rehearsal (A really cool program Karisma Resorts do, where they give you a special price/couple to go down and check out some resorts, meet wedding planners and vendors etcetc- it's great having never been there to leave knowing and seeing it all- http://www.memorablemomentsweddings.com/Memorable-Moments-Weddings-Dress_Rehearsal.cfm) I'm pretty laid back- it's Mexico. Where ever you are, how ever it's decorated, whatever the weather is- it's going to be gorgeous. I wanted a destination wedding so that I could not worry about things! It will be what it will be- and regardless of what it is, MEXICO! lol I did just see a post about travel guidelines for the DR (Below). Just something to consider, it seems really restrictive! Have you been to the DR? I'm struggling at the moment with people who are afraid to travel to Mexico, which I've always found funny because I've been 6 times and I'm still alive! AND only 3 of those times were on resorts! I felt the least safe of all my travels in the DR, so it's just something that I like to mention!
    • Hello, oh thank you that’s great, how can I come across her details? where are you getting married and how have you found planning so far? 
    • I've had nothing but an amazing experience with my TA, Barbara (Babs) Vong- she actually works for Wright Travel Agency- the ones that run this forum! I'd suggest reaching out to them first- they're the experts!   My wedding is in February of 2020, and we started planning around August 2018, for what it's worth on a timeline.
