No, H. When I'm laying with my swollen feet up in the air complaining of the constant pelvic pressure I've felt for 20+ weeks, it isn't a good time to talk about a third baby.
Let's get this one out and out of newborn hell stage first.
My H keeps bringing up another baby also! I have resorted to just glaring at him when he talks about it, so now he things it's super funny. Nope. Let's focus on getting my body back and getting used to two kids first. We went through hell and back to get pregnant with this baby so I'd like to take a year or two OFF of that.
We finally got ds's new big boy bed put together and set up in his room and moved the crib to our room. Now I can hang baby girl's two decorations on the wall and feel like she actually has a place in our home! There's like six ladies in our church having babies this summer. One just had hers last week, one is due in the middle of June, and then I think I'm next! Yay! All of us are having girls except the one poor lady who already has three boys and desperately wanted a girl.
Yay for big boy beds! We moved A into his new room yesterday. The child that has fought his afternoon nap for weeeeeks crawled right into his new bed and fell asleep. And then bedtime was super easy as well. In really hoping this sticks and isn't all going to go to shit once the novelty of the new bed wears off!
You give me hope! We have had the big boy bed set up for a while now but haven't made the switch.

My mom is already talking #3. DH is good with 2 and I probably will be too. This will be my parents 8th grandchild and my brother and SIL just got married and don't have any yet. They'll survive if I don't give them any more...

I just finished watching the last 2 weeks of Call the Midwife. I'm still wiping away the tears. Such good stories.
A slept like crap last night and was up ready to destroy anything and everything at 6. He was up every single hour. Thankfully he is taking a good nap. He has been more that terrible today. C had her show off day at gymnastics. She is so good! Just doing it for 2 sessions she has learned so much and gotten so much upper body strength. She decided she wants to do ballet for the summer. I'm excited to see which she enjoys more and choses to do in the future.
Last night was sucktastic. DS is sick again, with a bad cough so he couldn't fall asleep and then threw up a bunch because of said coughing. One time was all over me. I still haven't washed my hair ☹️
Re: wine. I had one small glass at 21 weeks and another on Mother's Day. I see nothing wrong with a little wine or beer. I've also took a bunch of sips periodically from DH.
We are 2 and done. DH would probably have as many babies as I wanted. But I'm good with two.
I originally read that as DH is sick again...when I got to the part about puking on you I had to go back and reread cause I was trying to figure out why your H would puke on you...LOL...I think I need more sleep!

Seriously now I'm wanting Oreos so bad!
As far as more kids. I always wanted 5. Dh was good with 1 or 2. After all we went through with infertility, adopting, and surgery I was open for however many God wants for us. After we had C dh started talking getting fixed. I told him it was up to him, but I wasn't really on board. However I will not be on any form of bc. Then came A. I told him I would now back him getting it done, but I will not make the appointment for him. I still didn't feel like 3 was all we were meant to have. Now here we are with #4 on the way. We will see if he goes after the baby comes.
Fun fact MissSally , my friend had prodromal labor for several weeks with her third baby. Her labor was 1.5 hours start to finish and she had a car baby.
Oh. my. lord. This is a huge fear of mine. Especially after being induced the first time around I have NO idea what going into labor is like. Plus with them telling me early on that I'm probably going to have him early... this is making it worse. I'm trying so hard not to freak out.
Also we live 45 minutes from the hospital without rush hour traffic.
MissSally - not sure if this helps or not. I did not have any prodromal labor. But my second child was a car baby too. 1 hr start to finish. The only thing of note for me was that at my first cervical check at 35 weeks, I was already dilated to a 3. I was at a 4 by 36 weeks. I had him at 37+5.
DH's grandmother passed today. Today was her 77th birthday. I can't say this to DH but it is such a relief. She's been on hospice for over a year. She's been suffering. The constant stress was wearing on everyone. But now comes all the sibling bickering over arrangements and whatnot. It sucks, and he and I are in the middle. Now is the time when it becomes apparent how sucky it is that he is the only child of a single, divorced woman. She is leaning on him for everything, which I understand. But I'm 33 weeks pregnant, sick as a dog (keep vomiting), dealing with two kids, and one of those two kids is now sick. I'm at the end of my rope. I need something from him here at home right now.
nola1017 I'm sorry to hear about YH's grandma. Having a loved one on hospice long term is incredibly difficult on everyone involved. I think feeling relief is totally normal. I hope YH able to be there for you again quickly. Can you call in a friend for reinforcements?
nola1017 I'm sorry for your loss, and also all of the added stress it is putting on you and your family. It's such a bittersweet thing when a family member in hospice passes away. When H's grandfather died (he had been in hospice for a year also) we were happy that he was finally in a better place, but sad that he was gone.
Poor ds officially has a nasty old. He's been fighting it for about a week but it's actually settled in now. He hardly slept last night (and therefore neither did I!) and his nose is running like a faucet! Poor kid. I hate it when my kid is sick!

I just finished up with an hour long massage which was fantastic. Then my mom want me to pick up Chick-fil-A for lunch since she's watching the kids and I got my first frosted lemonade. I think I'm going to be in real trouble with this because it is so good.
