In another thread @Stephanie has confirmed she's pregnant and expecting her baby in July
@everyone else please tag others and share our joy for @Stephanie fabulous news.
Congratulations and all the very best to add to your family.
Shall we have a guessing game what the baby will be, girl or boy, twins, triplets and what the baby or babies will be called???
I'm picking a strawberry related name
Oh @Huma0 it's been 6 months since I last had the taste of wine. I survived a Christmas party too! Once the baby's here we should have an online meet-up with BYOB haha!
We could do that now actually but I guess I'll be third wheeling it haha
@Stephanie Congratulations! I'll think on some baby names for you, but you're going to make us all work double hard if you don't tell us the gender :-))
And hey, I know modern medicine has all pregnant women thinking they dare not touch a drop of alcohol, but babies don't get fetal alcohol syndrome or anything else bad from you having the occasional sips of wine or beer. I've never been much of a drinker, but I had 3 kids and I didn't pass on a small glass on a festive occasion when I was pregnant. They all turned out 7 and a half to 8 and a half pounds, perfectly healthy and were all A students- nothing wrong with their brains at all.
It wasn't all that long ago that pregnant women were advised to have a glass of beer a day!
It wasn't that long ago pregnant women and new mothers were encouraged to smoke!
When my two girls were born there was an ashtray on every hospital bedside table.
The nurses encouraged the new mothers to smoke, they said it relaxed them and calmed their anxiety about the birth.
One nurse we came across even said she encouraged the nursing mothers to smoke! She claimed it aided the production of milk for the baby.
Like I said in another thread.....times have changed!
It's the same with the ways of raising the child too - you can find an article or a testimony for almost anything these days and I don't think there's a strict rule set to follow! Keep them fed, watered and loved. Same as a dog only more demanding (which is hard to believe after Brandon!)
