For some women it doesn't come in until after the baby is born. Also, what usually comes in first isn't actually milk, it's colostrum (I think that's how it's spelled). While it isn't milk, it's still important as it's rich in antibiotics.View Thread
When I was 7 or 8 months pregnant, I was riding the train to work as I do every day. It was crowded so I had to stand and not one person offered me their seat. It's not like I was bundled up in a coat so they couldn't tell I was pregnant since it was summer.View Thread
I still have to work this week although they'll probably send us home early Friday. I have one more gift to get and that's just going to be a gift card. I'm done with the shopping for everyone else and just need to wrap the gifts. We don't have a tree so we'll probably just put them in the corner after the kids go to bed Christmas Eve.
We don't usually travel for Christmas. I'm not much of a cook and our house really isn't set up for guests so no, we aren't hosting any holiday dinners or parties. DH baked chocolate chip cookies Monday just because.
We're going to my parents' house for dinner Christmas Eve and to open gifts from my brother and SIL. We'll go back Christmas morning and open the gifts from grandma and grandpa.View Thread
Not to scare you but the now ex-wife of a former co-worker was told her entire pregnancy she was having a girl but ended up having a boy. She was so upset she told them to put it back.
A cousin's wife had been told early on that she was having a girl. She painted the room lavender and was getting ready to buy girl things when, at one of her later appointments, the doctor said she was going to have a healthy boy. She was like "What? I was told I was having a girl." It was a boy.
Now with DS, it was very obvious he was a boy. I tell people he was very proud of being a boy. DD was modest and wouldn't let anyone see her parts and the only way I found out was via amnio (done for genetic testing). The way I told people was that ultrasounds may lie but chromosomes don't.View Thread
We'll be going to my parents' house along with my brother, his wife, their three kids, my SIL's dad, two cousins, and a grandmother. Two years ago was interesting because my DD was barely 2 weeks old at Thanksgiving.
I'm thankful for my parents. They're both retired and have been helping us tremendously with the kids from watching them twice a week to taking DS to and from school and therapies.View Thread
