Well now that my due date is coming up, I guess it's time to start getting all the baby things in the mail...Yesterday I got something about cord blood banking and today I got a newborn diaper from huggies
You know I had signed up for so many things when I was pregnant with Katrina, expecting to get them around her due date or soon after. In around Nov. 2008, I told Jon how in about that time or in about a month from then we would start getting things in the mail....only to keep reminding us that we don't have her with us and I wasn't really looking forward to it.
For some reason though, we got absolutely nothing! On one hand I was very happy because I didn't have to deal with all that stuff, but on the other hand it was almost like a slap in the face because it seemed that places out there had expected us not to be able to bring her home, if that makes any sense (yes, I know I'm reading into this waay too much). It's just weird how we got nothing (and no, Jon did not somehow tell all these places not to send anything because he had no idea where I put my name down, etc).
When I was pregnant with Eric, I signed up for something at the Motherhood Maternity store. For about a year now I keep getting babies things all the time. I just got a free diaper from Pampers in the six months old size....
Babies R Us sends me coupons every 2 weeks. Convenient NOW, but I cried every other Thursday like clockwork for 7 whole months. I also had a ViaCord representative call me at home maybe 2 months after he was born. I was stunned to say the least and told her that no we weren't interested. When she asked why not and went straight into her sales pitch I burst into tears and said "Because he was born dead!" She was really sorry she had pushed at that point. If I hadn't been a mess I would have asked for her supervisor.
I was registered online on a baby site that would send me updates every single Thursday about the week I was in and how my baby looked / how big the baby was, etc. The day after we lost Katrina I tried canceling getting it sent to my email and it said it would be canceled, but for about 5 weeks thereafter and after me emailing them plenty of times to cancel it, I kept getting it. It was such a blow to me every Thursday when I would open my email and there it was: "baby's 25th week" or whatever. It drove me insane and I would cry every time I saw it in my inbox. UGH.
