Wish me luck!

June 16th, 2009 at 04:50 pm

At this time tomorrow, I'll be a new mommy!

Baby never turned, even after all my efforts, and an unsuccessful 'version' by my doctor. So, C-section it is...

It's strange to think this is my last day of work for 8-12 weeks. (Depending on how well I feel, and how I can s-t-r-e-t-c-h our savings.)

We're both excited to start this next chapter in our lives! I can't wait!

Ideas for Frozen Meals?

June 8th, 2009 at 03:04 pm

I think I'll take this weekend and get some meals ready in the freezer. It'll be nice to have something to stick in the oven when both of us are tired and don't feel like cooking. I haven't even had the baby yet, and I feel myself getting very lazy in the kitchen--my big cooking accomplishment this week was BLTs and macaroni and cheese. Not the healthiest, but...

So does anyone have ideas for meals that freeze well, besides meatloaf, chili and lasagna? I have a lot of ground meat (beef and turkey), but am also open to recipes with chicken breasts, porkchops, roasts, etc. I have all that meat in freezer ready to go!

Don't think we'll reach our goal

June 5th, 2009 at 03:07 pm

We now have less than 3 weeks until my due date. And we're $1456 shy of our goal. The only thing that has put a crimp in our savings, is that I finally told my other jobs that I'm all done until after baby comes. It was just getting to be too much. Still pulling my regular 40 hour job too. We still have a little time and DH is working as much as he can also. I still think we'll be ok-I won't need much gas money if I'm not commuting to work everyday, etc.

I've also been spending some money(mostly from my HSA) for Chiropractor appt, accupuncture, massage, etc. All the 'alternative' therapies that may help turn this breech baby. Trying to avoid a c section-I know, I know, it's not bad, blah blah blah. But it's something I would like to avoid. Baby is really wedged in there, so I also don't think s/he'll turn at the last minute either.

But either way, we'll have our little bundle of joy pretty soon! Smile
