So, I am going to use this time to express to you all of the things I am going to do...the next time.
Things I want to do:
-Breastfeed longer, which also means learning to nurse in public. (NIP) I am not going to be ashamed or embarassed next time.
-Take more pictures while in labor and right after he or she is born. However, still no vag shots. Kthanks.
-Not sweat the small stuff so much.
-Eat better during pregnancy and try to find a way to manage my gestational diabetes better.
-Stop and enjoy pregnancy. I found myself missing it after Ian was born.
-Advocate more for myself and my baby during labor and delivery. Those of you who have read my birth story know that I had a very hard labor, which caused some medical problems for both Ian and I. That will not be happening again.
-Splurge and buy a few nice maternity pieces that I feel good in.
-Get maternity shots done (with Ian and Toby in them as well)
1. The Baby Jogger Baby Micro City Double Stroller: With Ian, we never took the time to buy a very nice stroller, and I wish that we would have. With two in tow, I will certainly splurge to get a nice stroller to tote the tots around in. This one is priced at 299.99...but I'm good at finding sales. Plus... I love craiglist!
2. The Nap Nanny: After dealing with Ian's horrible acid reflux, I absoutely would love to have one of these next time! They hold baby in a position that reduces the risk of SIDS, and that reducs colic and reflux. Plus, they are lightweight, and made of very soft, comfy, high quality material. I have heard nothing but wonderful things about these! I picked it out in pink because...well...part of me really hopes the next one is a girl.
...you get the idea. I keep planning what I'm going to do next time. Thanks for reading my pointless post. =)
