First of all, your baby is a cutie pie, can't wait to see more pics!

OMG I can't believe you already fit into your jeans and are back down to your pre-pregnancy weight, congrats!!! I'm really hoping I'll be able to stay active, but like the other girls have pointed out, even with the best of intentions is doesn't necessarily pan out that way. Hopefully I'll be lucky like you were!!!

Hey ladies

 

Hope everyone's doing well...Haven't been on for a few days I thought I was in labour Sat night and they kept me in until today because of my blood pressure again. We came home, I walked in the house and went to the bathroom and got up and thought my water broke...apparently false alarm again we drove all the way back to the hospital (in another town 20 minutes away) to get told to come home again! I'm in the early stages of labour, and 1 cm dialated so we're just waiting around now...My blood pressure is back down again but they sent me home with a blood pressure machine to check it daily. And I can no longer deliver here, they're sending me to the city sad.gif My dr figures they will induce me sometime this week. And I think my mom is the reason for my high blood pressure it sucks this all had to happen this weekend before the actual delivery because FI and I wanted it to just be us in the delivery room and my mom doesn't understand that and is pushing to be there.....let's hope bp stays down with her around! ha...gotta love them though!

 

Anyways...Sorry for my rant..Getting so anxious for this little girl to finally come after this week that we've had!!

Kelly-- Glad to hear she's not too big! Do you think they'll induce you early with her?

 

Our initial plan was to sneak away and not tell anyone until we'd had the baby and had a rest even..but after being in the hospital it was hard not to tell her what was going on..And, I don't wanna make people mad that we wouldn't tell them I'm getting induced, so Mom would really be mad if I just didn't tell her...and good old facebook makes it literally impossible to keep things on the down low!

I'm actually surprised she didn't just start driving! At first I wasn't going to tell anyone I was even in the hospital, but they would have known something was up with me not being home answering the phone. So we'll see, hopefully we can at least have the baby before she comes down on Friday and she won't be as bad as I'm expecting her to be. Love her to death but my goodness.... stress me out sometimes!

Summer, thanks me too. Yes they are just trying to get me too 37 weeks. So probably around june 19th. I would like to wait until the end of the month for work but I guess my little princess will decide that for all of us.

 

When are they inducing you? Good luck if we dont get to chat before you have your little one. As you see I cant sleep anymore. I cant win over here...

Tlseege- I love your pics!! You have such a cute belly and I swear mine looks so much bigger than yours! Tammy did a great job!!

 

Chanti- Good luck with the baby making on your weddingmoon blush2.gif

 

Bisha- It's nice to hear from you! I'm glad everything is going well and that you already fit in your pre-pregnancy jeans. Please post more pics of baby Gavin when you get a chance.

 

Summer- Sorry to hear about your BP. How has it been lately? Please keep us posted and best of luck in case you don't read this in time and you already had/having the baby!!

 

Kelly- I can't believe you are sooo close!! Wait, aren't Angel and you due around the same time?! Wow, so many babies here at once!!

 

I had one of my showers this weekend and it was a lot of fun. My parents bought us the travel system stroller we wanted and my grandma got us the high chair (actually we got 2!). We got some other things we registered for but for the most part I received lots of blankets for some reason! I don't know if I'll ever need that many, but I have tons now. I will download pics tonight and post them for you all.

    • 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.
