Okay, I'm not going to lie -- I am kind of freaking out! I am one big emotional, excited and overwhelmed happy mess! (Please excuse the randomness of this post) First off, thank you guys so much for your kind words on my last post! Keith and I weren't expecting our little miracle to show up so soon, but we are beyond thankful to be blessed by him or her, and by all of the people in our lives. Seriously -- our family and friends have drenched us in love and we are forever grateful. :)
As you guys know, Keith and I are in the process of moving from Charleston, SC to Atlanta, GA. Now that we've got a baby on the way this adds a completely new dynamic to our move and life. (AH!!! YAYYYY!!!!) We literally have so much to do (um, like pack!!!) in so little time (we are planning on moving in three weeks) but we are hopeful that everything will get accomplished.
Another thing that I am thinking about is school. I am a senior with only two jammed packed semesters left...I should be able to make it through the fall without too much trouble, but my little one is due during my final semester. What do I do? Jump in and hope for the best? Postpone graduation for a year? Decisions, decisions...any advice??
To my Atlanta bloggy friends -- Can you guys recommend a great OBGYN? Anyone ever been to the Peachtree Women's Clinic? Also, any comments on Northside Hospital and Piedmont?
Reading material anyone?
Even though the hubs and I freaked out at Barnes and Noble and purchased way too many books, I still have a few questions. All of my lovely pregnant/mothers/knowledgeable friends...
1. I know that I can't get in hot tubs or take really hot baths...but how hot is too hot for a bath? I am used to taking super long, super hot baths, and while I've toned it down I still don't want to do anything that may harm Baby Christmas. Any advice?
2. Does anyone know over any safe, over-the-counter acne medication that I can use? I was using prescription strength topical creams, but I've since downgraded to a low percent of Salicylic Acid face wash and astringent pad -- can I use this? (I'm using Aveeno Clear Complexion face wash and Stridex Sensitive Face Pads) I am having one heck of a time getting a hold of my dermatologist and once again, I don't want to do anything that will harm my little one.
3. What about heavy stuff? Can I pick it up? Push it across the floor? Drag it??? We are beginning to pack up our house and it seems like every time I turn around I am struggling with a heavy box.
*Sigh* I think that's all for now. :) I apologize for the random questions and thoughts...it felt great to get that out!
