I would have a sudden attack of extreme superstition and tell them all that you don't want any relatives to host it because that is bad luck. Ask that they should look for a friend who will host just that side of friends and family and you will see about one of your friends having one for your work friends.
Talk about nightmares and this friend whose mil had it and then..., etc.
Of course, this is coming from a woman whose mother in law didn't like the fact that we cut down the must invite list for the wedding so she went out and had her own invites sent to the people we left off. That was lovely to have an extra 150 people rsvp.View Thread
No, you don't always drop before you go into labor and really-I never could tell if I had dropped. My mother would say "Oh you have dropped so low!" on the same day a best friend would say "You just are never going to drop are you?"
Shrug. I couldn't ever tell. Just like when people say that my children look like this relative or that relative...um no...they look like each other and they look like themselves.
(although as they have gotten older I can see this or that relative in them)View Thread
I hated induction with my youngest. My others were "late" according to dates and according ultrasounds. As much as I wanted to get the pregnancy over with-I am glad I was induced with all three. Youngest was induced at two weeks post dates but it was an entirely different sort of labor. Obviously, I was glad when she got here and she was fine and healthy-I just hated the labor with her-all the machines and having to take the poll into the bathroom and stuff.View Thread
