Yeah, I would like for my boundary this time to be for her to come to the hospital after I am out of recovery, or better yet, come to the house after we get home. But she just kind of does whatever she wants. I went into labor 3 days before my scheduled c-section last time, and I was dealing with the pain of contractions the way I wanted to because, well, I WAS THE ONE IN LABOR!! Meanwhile, she was sitting next to my husband who was sitting next to the bed, rubbing his legs and his head and his face! Funny thing is, she got my husband alone a few weeks ago, and brought the whole thing up to tell him how hurtful it was to her, and how ridiculous the noises were that I was making. Ok, like I want this lady anywhere near me when I have a baby this time!! UGH! Sorry, went into a little vent mode!

Ah yes that would be great! I wish my MIL was like that too!! Lucky girl!! Olivejuice, do we have the same MIl?? Sure sounds familiar!! My boundary sadly this time is that she isn't to come near me until delivery ugh she was a total nigtmare during my last pregnancy as well as our long Nicu stay, hurtful, rude and selfish! Not this time!! :lol:

congrats! I wish my mil was like that! I was just sitting here plotting a plan for healthy boundaries with mine this time. Last time was a disaster that she is still complaining/hurting my feelings about!

Hit 20 weeks last week, and the only other milestones I'm really looking for now are to get through the holidays, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's. 37 weeks would be Jan 15th, which is what I'm hoping to reach before needing to deliver.

I'm thinking about asking my mother-in-law for a doula this year for Christmas. :D She likes buying big, expensive presents, and it would be nice to have somebody to help take care of me with my hubby's attentions split between me and the 2 year old.

Awesome! So happy for you! Sounds like 32 weeks will come and go no problem. But I know it seems like forever!

One of my next milestones is coming up on Tuesday. I will be 30 weeks then :-) My next goal after that is 32 weeks. So far everything looks good. Am just plagued by the usual pregnancy ailments like sore back, poor night sleep, tiredness, heartburn if I eat to big a portions or lie down too quickly after eating.

Julieb, so happy for you getting to 15 weeks! Praying peace for the next 5 weeks! Bmore, I understand what you mean! My gauges are my wedding ring and a scar on my foot! As long as the ring fits, and the scar is still sunken in, all is good!!! Next Tuesday will be here before you know it!

Passed a pretty important one on monday, which I posted about. That was 32 weeks 6 days, when I was admitted to the hospital with my first. The next big one will be 33 weeks, the day my son was delivered via c-section after a long and difficult failed induction on mag... I look at my feet first thing in the morning every morning. If I can still see my ankles, that gives me hope that this pregnancy could carry on to....who knows how long. Just taking it one day, one week, one milestone at a time! I'll be 33 weeks next tuesday.

I am only 15 weeks so I haven't really hit any of my milestones yet but 20 weeks is a big milestone for me. With DS he was already measuring about a week small at my 20 week ultrasound and my BP went crazy high about a week later. I am already getting nervous that I am only 5 weeks from when everything went crazy with DS!
