Susan- I am undecided too on the enema. DH is for it after he heard that I may poop on the table. He doesn't think he can handle that. ((Sigh)) He really doesn't know what he's in for.
Melanie- You are doing really well not ordering a whole lot online. I would be buying up everything just to look forward to getting packages.
Well baby shower was wonderful and exhausting! My mom made a "monkey" cake which was adorable. (She has all the pics too.) Played all the normal games and got TONS of things for baby. I don't even know where to start. Dad bought our travel system (YAY) and we got our high chair, video monitor, bath tub, pack n play, tons of bath products, diapers, wipes, washcloths, towels, clothes/onesies, toys, crib sheets, pack n play sheets, and I think that may be it give or take a few extra misc items. Oh and my painted belly cast which was perfect!!! I cried when she gave it to me. Probably because it was the last thing and I was feeling so overwhelmed! I took pics of the pile of stuff and the belly cast which I will post later. Right now I am just putting my feet up because I am so sore.
DH and I looked at each other and said "What do we do with all of this stuff?" As much as I loved everything, I kinda wish the showers had been a few weeks earlier when I wasnt so big and sore. It's going to take some time to sort through it all. Some people bought newborn size clothes which are cute but if James is going to be close to 8lbs. then he won't even get to wear them. So we will probably return some things later....much later.
Waves to all the preggos! Off to watch some mindless TV and then hit the sack! Wish I was off tomorrow....would like to start organizing.
