Quoting ♥Jessie♥:" How many of you are already experiencing braxton Hicks? I read that you feel them earlier with extremely active children so I am not surprised since all the doctors have mentioned how wiggly she is."


I am not sure if I have felt really strong kicks or if they have been BHs.

Thank you to everyone who responding to my last post!! You all made me feel a little better about it.
After seeing the school and meeting the principal and his teacher, I am more at ease about it and so is my son.
I am still worried that he will have a crying fit or something when I leave him lol I dont think its likely though since he wants to go so bad.




Bhs: Ive been having them for a few weeks. Mine are pretty strong but they are only like once a day or more if Ive been out walking alot.

Just remember if he does have a fit ( which he may from time to time), it is normal and the teacher will help you out.

Amy: Sounds like you're more worried than he is. He'll probably not even look back when you leave... The first time I left my daughter at daycare (it was a drop off type thing so I could go to a DR appointment) I feared for sure she'd wail (I attachment parent and she's never really been away from me for long, and even then, it was with family)... well, she went to play and didn't even tell me bye.



I was the one crying, not her. LOL

Lol yep I probably will be crying the whole drive home. The principal today told me the best thing I can do on the first day is leave as soon as possible haha. Im sure he's right.

Ooh, I know! I saw one I liked but... I still can't bring myself to pay even that much for a diaper bag. :? I'm hoping someone will love me enough to get one for my baby shower but I'm not holding my breath. lol



I did see a really cute, cheap bag at ROSS the other day, but I didn't get it even though DH told me I'd be crazy not to. Guess I'm crazy.

Omg I want one so bad too! My SIL has one and I am super jealous. It is so girly and cute and has a changing station thing built into it and the fabric is so nice. *sigh* Think I will just use a regular purse or backpack this time.

That sucks! have you ever tried folding up a blanket and using it like a body pillow? I do that if my dh steals one during the night, it works ok. They are so cheap at Walmart though too.

No extra ones yet, I'm surprisingly still kinda comfy! I'm thinking of investing in a body pillow, though. I know I'm going to need it.

Yeah I meant to get one tonight but Hubby didn't feel well and we didn't go.



It's been too hot for blankets. I was dying last night with just a thin one haha

I have a big pregnancy pillow. But Addie still sleeps with me ad wakes up randomly to nurse so I'm afraid to use it. Lol. It's so big I'm afraid it'll suffocate her! I've only gotten to use if one time am that one time was amazing. Haha. But I sleep with 4 regular pillows usually to try to even things out. Lol

Lol I just have a normal pillow, that usually ends up on the floor, and whatever part of SO that I happen to flop on. I tell him all the time he's my favorite pillow...I'm only half joking.
