In-law Drama & Babies.

I'm not sure what makes my in-laws do the things they do. I am however very tired of the way they question every decision I make. 

For example, the fact that I didn't want any visitors while I was in labor with Miss A, my mom and baby sister took me to the hospital and waited till my husband showed up then left to pick up around my house & love my dog. My younger sister stopped by with food for the husband that night, weren't there for more than 5 minutes total. 

Or that I didn't want kids or very many visitors in the hospital after I had her. I didn't need a crowded room while I was relaxing and enjoying my first hours as a mom. (If you like to do that, that's fine I'm not judging, its just not what I wanted to have happen.)

Every time they threw a fit. Complaining, saying it was weird. Like when they got mad because I was tired of people showing up whenever with whoever they wanted after I got home and said something about it. My house, my baby, my rules. 

The newest thing is the fact that I'm having my girls share a room. I just finished putting the toddler bed back into the nursery & setting up the new crib. They fit perfect in that room together. I grew up always sharing a room, I loved it. Once I was older I got my own room, just when I started feeling like I needed my own space. And again, my house, my girls, my rules. 

Every one parents different. My husband and I have agreed on a certain way that makes us all comfortable and happy. It's worked for us for over 2 years now. My sisters and their boyfriends choose to parent different than us, as do my brother, his fiance and his son's mom. They do what works for them. I might not agree with their styles, but they know their kids and I'm gonna keep my mouth shut, it's not my place

Having our new addition joining us so soon really has me on edge. I'm not ready for any drama with my in-laws. They're just going to need to accept that I do things different than them. I don't want an audience at the birth of Miss M, Miss A will be with my family, we'll only have a few visitors at the actual hospital and then people can schedule a time to visit at home after. It's really that simple. 

I don't know what to do. I'm starting to stress out about what they're going to do. I don't need my brother in law telling me that I need medication, because I like things a certain way. (Still can't believe he said that, I should have strangled him.)

 But really friends, what do you do?

Quick Saturday Post.

Little sister's baby shower was today. I did pretty awesome. I showed those people how to throw a shower if you're short on time. Oh yeah. It was pretty good. People seemed to have fun. The games were fun. She got a fair amount of gifts. She felt special. It was great. My mom's mom showed up and wouldn't even look at me, nor talk to me, but she held my baby almost the whole time. She's never seen Abigail before so that was nice. Only took her 5 months, oh well. Well I'm going to get to my date night with my hot hubby and beautiful little girl. I'll post pics of the baby shower later. Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

Mon & Tues

What a whirl wind this past week has been. Life has been thrown in every direction. My brother & nephew moving out, the contractions and other baby stuff, I got my hair cut into an a-line again, and my sister is pregnant again. Wait what?! My little 16 year old sister is pregnant? And again even?!

Yup that's the newest gossip amongst the family. You might remember this from this post or even this one briefly mentioned it. But last year we found my sister --then 15-- was pregnant, and she ended up having a miscarriage. Monday she texted my dad while my mom and I were at the hair place and said she was pregnant again. Seriously? All I wanted to do was laugh. I mean really? She'll be 17 in April, and her boyfriend will be 17 in September, after they think the baby is due.

I just can't believe any of this. I of course support her and want the best for her but my heck.

Anyway that's just one thing going on around here.

I had another Dr's appt yesterday, thankfully I didn't gain the zillion pounds I thought I would have because of all the treats people have been bringing me... hmmm...a person on bed rest needs healthy stuff like carrots, so they don't just lay around eating chocolate all day :) He said bed rest for 2 more weeks (till my next appt) and no sex for at least 3.... ummm excuse me doc? That's not fair. I'll lay in bed for months if I have to but no sex?! Whatever. He wants me to keep her in there till 37 weeks, which is only 5 1/2 weeks not too bad. I just wish the contractions would stop completely. I also wish we could get more internal exams just to see if they're doing anything at all. Guess I'll just get to wait it out :)

Hope everyone is doing well!
