Bisha - the room's beautiful! I love your crib and the turtles are so adorable :) I don't blame you for not being able to wait.

 

Kelly - I feel so bad for you sad.gif I couldn't handle being hungry either. I become a huge biotch when I'm hungry normally and now that I'm pg it's ridiculous. LOL!

Kelly- If it makes you feel any better mood swings are an actual side effect of blood sugar swings! I'm hypoglycemic-opposite of a diabetic, I have low blood sugar all the time. I get grouchy a lot, and that with the pregnancy hormones are not a good mixture! My FI has to put up with a lot of that too! So keep your chin up, it's not just you!!

And Bisha- I love your room!! Very cute, we've had our nursery set up for quite awhile! My FI has to do some thinking on rigging the mobile to our crib, the edge is too wide for it to fit sad.gif We paid too much money for it, and the stupid thing doesn't fit! And of course we opened it and assembled it so we can't even return it! It's looking very cute so far!

Bisha- Very cute room!! I love the turtles and the crib! OMG- you have less than a month to go!!!

 

Kelly- Sorry to hear this whole GD isn't going smoothly! You made me laugh when you wrote about apologizing to your friends; I'm sure I'll be doing the same later on in the pregnancy because they do so put up with a lot!

So I had my (almost 37 week) appt this morning and boy am I glad hubby went to this one! Baby G is still breech and we have a version scheduled for this Sun morning (hopefully, still waiting to hear back from the doc). If it's not sucessfull or if he turns back, we'll have a c-section scheduled for May 22 which will make hubby's birthday wish come true. He'll be 30 on the 24th and when I asked him what he wanted for his birthday his response was that he wants to be holding his son in his arms! :) I'm a little upset about this turn of events (or lack of turning! LOL) but I did do some thorough research on the topic and am feeling a little better about it since it is pretty safe. We decided that we still have to prepare for the worse (ie emergency c-section) so there's a lot of work to do for us before the end of the week.

Hey ladies, hope everyone is doing well. I've been hanging in there, just a lot of back problems. A month and a half of work left and then I'll be able to rest a little before she comes. If she doesn't decide to come early. Then I'll be starting my new adventure in being a SAHM. I don't know how I'm going to adapt to that. I think I'm going to be bored when my older ones start school. I guess I'll manage.

 

Bisha, I love the baby's room. It is too cute. Your crib looks like one of the cribs we were thinking about getting.

 

Well I hope everyone is doing well. Everybody enjoy the rest of the week!!!!

    • 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.
