I am nervous and need to whine a bit...

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Okay I have two months to go........Then I will be delivering my last child. I am miserable, and nervous. It has been 4 years since I went through this. What if things don't get done in time? What if something goes wrong? I guess I am kinda freaking out, In two months I am going to have a little baby boy. I don't know anything about boys.

Yes pregnancy is a beautiful thing, but my God it has it's down side. I can't sleep well anymore. I guess this is God's way of preparing my body for after the birth. My back and legs hurt constantly. And my energy levels have fallen through the floor. I am getting antsy.

Aww
Little boys are EASIER then little girls
Just remember to duck when you're changing his diaper They become human fire exstinguishers I recommend getting a babywipe warmer. They have them at walmart for about $10... I loved them and the boys didn't pee on me when the warm wipe touched them compared to the cold.

Im sure everything will be fine w/the baby..You're nesting and it makes ya nervous sometimes...

You decide on a name yet?

Yeah Jerry and I decided on Quinton Matthew. We will most likely call him Matthew. But, I guess it depends on the baby, and his personality. He might be called Quinton.

Babies are babies, regardless of gender - you feed one end, keep the other end clean and dry and cuddle the rest.

As the mother of two boys and having three younger brothers, I learned the "quick switch" diaper changing method, at an early age. ALWAYS keep the front covered! When we brought my oldest son home, the first thing, that he did, was nail my (ex)MIL right in the eye! I laughed so hard, I almost busted my stitches

I have nieces and nephews and found girls easier just because of that aim one time my younger sister was getting ready to go out and she came to give him a kiss goodbye and he got her hair she was so unimpressed she vowed never to have children, she is due in November and says it is lucky it is a girl because otherwise 'daddy' would have been doing all the changes.
Other than the quick diaper changes there is little difference, while they are babies at least

Justice got me right in the face! And Deacon was literally 5 seconds old and got the Dr in the chest!

I love that name! But, I won't still it lol. This is gonna be cool too. Jerry has 3 girls and I have 2. We didn't think it was gonna be possible to have a boy. Grand parents will be fighting. lol I also guess I am worried because school starts in a few weeks, and I am gonna have the tubal, I am gonna need so much help. My mom is in poor health(thats another thread...)His parents will be able to help some, but, he works nights. Thats also scary what if I go into labor and have to get a 4 yr old and 6 yr old up and get to the hospital, by myself.....

That sounds very familiar. When I was preggers with my second child, for some reason I was upset to learn he (Ben) was a boy. I just pictured him as a full grown man, and knew I had no idea of how to raise a man. But they are born very tiny and helpless! I think it may be partly the hormones.

Ben is 17 now, and will be a senior this year. He has his moments, but he has been such a blessing to me! I'm sure Quinton will be, too. My cousin has a Quinton...her 5th child! LOL!

I had my tubes tied after my 4th child...it is no big deal. You will recover quickly, and the 6 y/o can run to bring you diapers. Get lots of color books and videos to keep the girls busy when you are distracted with the baby.

Congrats on the baby...I love watching the graphic in your siggy!

Well, with that many sisters, you'll probably have lots of help. If he's like my brother, he won't talk or walk becuase we did EVERYTHING for him! So you're due in October? I'm not sure of your religion, but I found it very sweet to have a baby boy around Christmas time, for some reason. (And don't forget his first Halloween costume.)

If things don't get done, I imagine they will at some time! hugs, Kim.

It is my experience after having 3 boys of my own.....that Pampers diapers are the BEST for boys.Huggies tend to allow the pee to run out before you can get them changed while they are sleeping.
If you are getting him circumsised (sp) try and remember NOT to use baby wipes on his wee wee.It will BURN him up.Use a wash cloth with alittle bit of baby soap such as Physoderm.Something with NO alchol in it.Make sure it is pretty damp and kind of let it drip on him.Let it air dry if you can.(If not, wipe it gently.)
I would always put the wash cloth in a bowl with warm water with the soap and use it that way.
Also, as someone else said....when you go to change him,place a clean diaper on his front side and then remove the soiled one.
They are easier to potty train.Mine walked sooner than my daughter did also.
Good luck.I'm sure you'll do GREAT!!!
