It’s not silly at all! While I won’t be working or continuing with formal education, I think it’s important for others to be able to feed the baby. Plus, if he’s always using the bottle he’ll be more used to it and he won’t be fussy switching from person to person, where-as breastfeeding without the bottle then suddenly changing might be a problem.
I’m watching a lot of vlogs on youtube where moms show off their favorite must-have items for newborns. Over and over again I’m seeing breast pumps. It’s amazing how many women exclusively breastfeed via pumping and bottles just like I’m planning to! I got quite a bit of flack from extended family and in-laws about it because they didn’t understand, so seeing a ton of other women doing and succeeding with the same thing is like a great confidence boost. =)
They had to reschedule my next appointment for some reason. Turns out it’s way better this way though because they moved me from next Thursday to this Monday, Dec. 9th at 2:30. That day I have my first baby class at 6:30 so it saves us a trip to Midland (a little over an hour round trip drive time)! And that’s the appointment with the glucose test in a different building, so I’ll have the regular check up then drive to the testing center then spend an hour there and when all is said and done we’ll only have to kill 2 hours before the class =)
I’m so glad they wanted me to reschedule. Still don’t know why I needed to but I’m glad I did ;D
I forgot I had Nutella. I know it sounds crazy and like it should never happen but it did. I bought it 2 weeks ago and ate some that day but completely forgot about it once I put it in the cupboard. Now I have this big delicious jar of chocolaty hazelnut goodness and mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

EEEE YOU GUYSSSS! Look what I just got today!
An all-in-one gift set which includes a bottle sterilizer, bottle warmer, bottle brush, 3 bottles and 2 pacifiers
A dual electric breast pump that is comparable to hospital-grade and works with all my stuff I already have.
I think we are pretty set for the big furniture items =D
Over the last week or so, every single day I’ll have one or two random hiccups. Usually my hiccups are caused by something, last for a few minutes, then go away once I stop thinking about them/hold my breath long enough/swallow a spoonful of sugar. But these are totally different! Just one hiccup at a completely odd time, like stepping out of the shower, or tucking into bed, or something equally random. It happens at least once a day, sometimes twice, but never two hiccups together.
I’m calling them my pregnancy hiccups. Anyone else get these? When did they start/stop? I’ll be 26 weeks tomorrow.
I’ve never been so excited for Thanksgiving in my life.
