So I think I posted about how my MIL and SIL wouldn't let me do anything for DH's birthday. I was being nice and letting them know about his schedule for their plans and taking it as an opportunity to say "You better involve me this time" (not word for word, but that was the idea.)
I told them I had been thinking of doing something for DH at our house on or around his birthday, but I would just go along with whatever they had already planned.
I get a call from SIL last night. She says:
"Um, about DH's birthday... mom and I are totally willing to let you [brief comment: Let me? LET ME? Wow, thanks, your permission is so important to me, thank you thank you.] plan something for DH's birthday."
I told her that I wasn't sure if she and MIL wanted to do their thing like they always do, at MIL's house, so I had thought I'd better check. She acted all surprised, like "Oh no we're totally laid back about it."
Anyways, whatever, she can ride the Denial Wagon all she wants, but the good news is that my squeaky wheel FINALLY was heard and I actually can plan my husband's birthday for him. I should have been able to do this years ago, but better late than never. I thought it was a good thing too since I know my MIL and SIL will try to take over planning our baby's birthdays, and there is no way on God's green earth that I'm going to let THAT happen!
I can't believe how much speaking up I've been doing lately! Amazing! Now they probably think I'm even more of b*tch than they did before, ha ha ha!
meh, I figure if they already think badly of you then there's no real point in continuing holding your tongue, right? I mean, people that closed minded aren't exactly likely to change their opinion of you ANYWAY.. so.. why bother?
What!!! When did you find out you're He's coming early? A little more info please! (or I'm going to have to go stalk you in your DDC, which I may do anyways because I'm impatient)[/b]
LOL, sorry hon I meant to come in here and update you!! I found out on Tuesday but got more info today...
Baby has IUGR, he is measuring about 2 wks behind where he should be. I am having 2x weekly NSTs and he is doing AWESOME! But, he may grow better on the outside than on the inside, so our plan is to make it to 35 weeks and reevaluate. My last u/s was on Tuesday and he is showing growth - a week and a half's worth in just one week! Yay baby! - so hopefully my next one this Tuesday coming up shows the same thing. If I go at 35 weeks then that's only a week and a half away, but McDreamy has told us we can reasonably hope to make it to 37 wks. I haven't even been referred to a high risk OB yet, so the odds are good we'll make it to 36 or 37 wks, but he definitely will show up before 38.
Sooooooo.... DH's birthday is April 10. If we make it to 37 wks before we get induced and deliver baby will be born on or around April 6... so that's my plan for his party! To be in LABOR!
I'm scared but totally doing my best to stay positive. Baby is doing so great on his NSTs, and I'm not showing any signs of pre-term, so I'm keeping everything crossed that we'll make it to April 6. Only 23 sleeps to go!!
