    yep your nursing! Exactly what Thomas did. Hang on, keep encouraging him and you'll be just fine. Esp when sorts out that there is milk there again! 3 more weeks, thats it? Are you ready?

    You ladies actually made me tear up. No one really understands but you. Even DH doesn't fully understand.

    No, I'm totally NOT ready. Is anyone ever really ready for a baby? I learned that the hard way the first time.

    No i dont even know why I ask you..people used to ask me that and also ask if Thomas was ready, no way did he understand what was going to happen or really even us, kwim? I was ready to not be pregnant but not ready to have 2. Its taken a long time to get to our new normal. Started feeling that way around 6 months pp, feeling even more "normal" now at nearly 9months pp....: what kind of birth are you planning?

    We've decided on a hospital water birth, midwife-assisted. The hospital has two water birthing suites. With my joint pain I have really been eased by the swimming pool in the past month. I'm thinking that would really help me.

    D will most likely be there, but not in the room for the whole thing. I'm really playing it by ear right now. I went to the spa for 1.5 hours on Sunday and he asked for me the whole time, and he was with DH. So I don't know. I'm hoping it happens during the day and not at night. He needs me most at night I think. He is more distractable during the day, and if my Mom is here, he will be fine playing with her.

    We are having a girl. We think we've settled on the name Lucy Jane. Daniel seems to KNOW that is her name, so why switch it up on him. I got video of him tonight showing off the baby and telling her name. I will post it soon.

    the name! I agree that it's nursing. the relationship still exists and both parties are still invested in it. I hop you have a camera ready from when he gets a full mouthful of milk, he will be thrilled!

    I too am hoping for a mellow baby for you, that means there is hope after the monster! (but we the monsters!)
