Mrs Martin - first off, you look FANTASTIC!!! Such a beautiful pregnant mommy! And it looks like you got some awesome stuff from the shower! And I agree about the bedding, it's super cute and will make for a great little boy's room!

Summer, I cant believe you are going to have a 9lb baby. You are tiny to be pushing one out. I made my ob promise not to make me push out a 9 lber. He laughed and said aw oh and left the room.

 

Mrs. Martin your pics are great looks like you had a great time.

I have a little complaining to do, sorry in advance. My brother ang his gf are expecting their baby boy about 4 weeks before we are. I have been planning to do our daughters room with a jungle theme since before we were even pregnant, I'm not into pinky princess things. It's mainly turned into all giraffe since they are my favorite animal. I love nature and bamboo my wedding had a ton of bamboo things etc. They were doing a sports theme so I thought, we walk into their shower last weekend and it is head to toe jungle animals and not just any animals, friggin' giraffes!!! I was so pissed. My husband reminds me that they didn't throw their own shower so dont be mad. When I asked her aout the sportd theme she says, oh we changed our mind! Why wouldn't they tell us? I know I didn't invent the theme but to use the same animal when I made it perfectly clear what we were doing all along. We also live down the road from each other exactly 1 mile and we talk all the time and see each other. I just think it's rude. Thank you, I feel a little better now. : )

I'd be upset too, actually. my sister is due two weeks after me, so I definitely know what you mean.

I'm sure, although the same theme, the rooms will look completely different. That'll be nice. Do you guys already have your bedding?

Hello ladies, hope everyone is doing well.

I don't do too much complaining but I guess it's my time. Sorry in advance!!!!

Well I just got back from my appt and my homegirl is still BREECH. I am beyond disappointed. I've been crying ever since she told me. So of course she's scheduling a c-section in 3 weeks. There is only a 10% chance she will turn so I'm giving it all my hope and doing everything I can do. I go back next Monday to see if she is still breech, if she isn't then they will induce me at 37 weeks so I can have my natural birth like I planned. It's upsetting because it seems like when I plan for things it goes the complete opposite. (sigh)

Ok, enough of my drama.

How is everyone else doing?

Awww Angel i'm sorry she's breech. My SIL's baby was breech, scheduled for a c-section, and the little bugger flipped around and was delivered within an hour after going into labor! So, it's totally possible your girl turns her little butt around :).

 

My complaint for the day is being ITCHY! My eczema is rocking. My doctor said with pregnancy it's usually worse. I'm trying a new cream Kat recommended and it seems to be helping. I need to give it more time to know for sure. Oh and Kat, YAY for your baby girl!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tlseege, we have picked some of our bedding we're buying it seperatly not a full set. And yes the room colors are different so it's really no biggie, it was just a bit annoying.

 

Kat- how exciting a little girl!! Shopping is going to be so much fun!

 

Angel- Sorry to hear about your breach baby, but who knows maybe she will turn just in time like mentioned before. I hope everything goes safely and smoothly for you!

 

How is everyone sleeping? I'm getting a bit uncomfortable and use about 6 pillows. But I'm feeling good and plump : )

    • 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.
