My mom must have caught wind that what she said about me having another boy really upset me. Matt said he didn’t say anything to her, but I’m guessing she came around on her own. We went shopping today and she bought Mason and the new baby, a cute matching outfit. She also bought the baby a bunch of cute Superman stuff to wear. I feel a lot better now and I’m glad she is treating this baby just as special.
I appreciate all your thoughts and kind words..those of you who commented on that post.
I’m not proud of this. I feel horrible about it. Yesterday I went and found out that we are having another boy. I went into this pregnancy gender neutral because I didn’t care what we got. I called to tell my mom yesterday and her response was “oh. Well I guess I have to return the stuff I bought. I assumed you were going to have a girl.” Now I’m so disappointed. I am selfishly disappointed that I’m not having a girl because that’s what every one else wanted. I also tried to show her my ultrasound pictures from yesterday and she glanced and them for literally 2 seconds and handed them back. I feel awful. I love her to death and I’m so sad that she didn’t get the grandchild she expected.
It’s a BOY!!
How do you keep your sex life afloat with two or more kids?! We only have Mason right now and we are barely having sex once a week. I’m not blaming it all on Mason, so that’s not where I’m going with this. We just revolve our lives around him and working that we don’t seem to have time for each other. My sex drive has also been pretty low for being pregnant. I’m afraid we will barely touch each other after 2 kids.
There is NOTHING wrong with having a c-section over a vaginal birth, vice versa. My previous post was about women who WANT to give birth vaginally, but are not even given the option. If you want a second, third, etc. c-section, that’s great. It’s all child birth. I just don’t agree with forcing another one on a mom who wants to try a different way of delivering.
Unless of course there is a serious medical reason.
I’ve never understood why “VBAC” is a thing. Like..every birth should be treated differently and it shouldn’t be about allowing someone to try to have a VBAC. Just because a woman had difficulty giving birth vaginally the first time doesn’t mean that they don’t deserve the equal chance to try again without it being a huge deal.
