SSP - that sucks about your mum's house, I hate burglers, how dare they go into peoples houses and help themselves, it makes me so mad
Sally - I agree with namie, DTD can bring on labour, in fact it helped with DD, she came a week early after DH and I DTD
I think my waters broke within a few hours
md86 - if you really love it, it's not a waste
Like you said you can reuse for other kids, and always sell it after you've finished with it and recoup at least a bit of money on it.
audree - humidity sounds terrible down there!
Lauren - all your Target buys sound awesome!
eks - yes our baby goes a bit crazy after DTD too, DH said he wondered if that's why our baby turned upside down, all the jiggling around
in broad details, no need to turn this in to the Kama Sutra of DIGs
DTD positions, the only thing that is any good for us at the moment is side by side, doesn't really do much for me honestly, but better than nothing I guess
I'm sorry if I've missed anyone with personals.
Thanks everyone for your thoughts. It's nice to be able to come in here and be able to read about 'normal' stuff and get away from the flooding stuff for a while.
I saw pictures of DD's school today and the water is about 1.5 metres in their new school hall
It was only finished in about October and all they've held in there is the school concert and some other end of year things. This is one of the higher points in the school, so I can only imagine what the rest of the school is like. DD has an upstairs classroom so that will be fine, but I really don't think she's going to be able to start school in a week and a half. DS's kindy is fine, so hopefully he can start on time.
It really is very depressing and sad, none of my friends or families homes have been flooded, but places we visit/shop/drive past everyday are, so it is really really sad. The place I worked at for 2 years is flooded, which is just crazy to think about. I really never thought I would see a flood like this in my city.
Thankfully our friends that I was worried about are ok, they didn't have water in their house, but under it. They are farmers and their farm is basically ruined now. It is going to be a huge clean up for them. DH has a bobcat and excavator so as soon as he can get out there he will go out to help. There are still so many roads blocked, we can't really go anywhere much.
Sorry to ramble on about it, but it's really all we are thinking about!
The poor baby must be wondering what's going on out here! The other night when we were waiting to see what was happening I felt quite stressed and I was having so many Braxton Hicks. I told the baby it couldn't come out yet as we were cut off from the hospital. I had visions of getting helicoptered to the hospital, but luckily baby is still firmly in place
