A Womb At The Inn

Kids say…

I was telling these stories to a friend today and thought it was blog worthy.  I think I already wrote about how my 4yr old son drew me a picture of him in my belly, yes, in.  Then the other day as he was going down for bed he called me back to his room to tell me that I am “the best baby in the belly maker ever”!! And yesterday we were sitting watching cartoons and out of nowhere I get “Are you making milk in your boobies?” haha. All this before the baby is actually even showing. 

On another note, I’ve been working on a balance between my wants and the (so far not so clear) wants of the baby’s parents about who/where/when of the birthing process.  Mixed thoughts about men (outside of the laboring womans husband) being in the birthing room.  Could write forever about my thoughts on birthing here but for times sake I’ll just leave it at that for now. One thing that I think I’m going to enjoy is that the midwife told me I could go home after 6hrs as long as everything is okay.  That is surely better than the 2 nights I spent with both my kids.  We are hoping to be able to get some family to cross an ocean for us (literally) to spend some time with us after the baby is born…much needed visit time and some help with the kids while I’m healing.

Baby stuff..so baby has been enjoyed a good array of home-made muffins lately.  Seems to be one of the few things baby likes.  Muffins…other grain foods are good, too, like toast, bagels and pancakes.  I’ve been a bit anti-veggies which isn’t normal for me.  Other things are day-to-day…one day greek yogurt with raspberries mixed in was wonderful so I tried it again a few days later and had to  toss it in the trash (and I hate wasting food) it tasted so bad to me. Been doing a lot of fruits and that has been going over relatively well.  I did myself out on fish n chips bc those where working well for me for a bit.  Oh, haha..last night I had several dreams about getting a shopping spree in a fine choco. shop!  Woke up almost drooling over the thought of having myself mailed some See’s candy with fruit cream middles or…oh the list goes on. Hm..I craved choco. when I was pregnant with my girl, is this a clue?  About a month and a half to go for that one though.  Speaking of food…It’s about time for me to switch to maternity clothes.  We had a little bit of a warmer day the other day and I pulled out some of my old maternity capri’s.  I only saved 2 pairs of maternity pants (both capri’s) from my kids and def. need to restock.  Today I’m wearing my pj’s through the day for comforts sake.  

Til next time~

Yea I waited and waited before I finally got maternity clothes. It’s different for us since we had our first kid(s) in the mil so we didn’t need a whole bunch of maternity clothes since we had our uniforms that we wore!! It was almost 7 months before I bought mine. Target!! 🙂

That was the/a joy of a uniform 🙂 I didn’t worry about maternity clothes with the kids until about 7-8months either. Yet another wish we were closer so we could have another Target trip 🙂
