    Thanks for stopping by Mel! I know what you mean... this pg has flown by!

    I love seeing my July mamas around for my next baby. Makes it all the more fun to share. I can't believe how far along Tiff and Sara are too! Their pregnancies are going by faster than mine! I keep thinking they are gaining on me! LOL!

    Default 36w, 4d Appt

    Well, met with Dr. A today. I really like my OB.

    Did the GBS swab. Fun.

    He asked again about the epi, I think he forgot about our last convo. But he was equally supportive this time and when he remembered he was shaking his head and all smiles again for us.

    I asked him what the chances are of us being released 'early.' I don't want to stay the 48 hours since I have my little sweet girl at home already. He agreed that if baby was good then there is no reason to stay past that. Of course, time of day of when we go into the hospital takes play since they can't/won't/don't/whatever do check outs like in the middle of the night. That makes sense. I just want to know that there is that possibility. I know I can always leave... I'm not hostage there. But it'd be nice to be released with all green lights, ya know? He was very supportive of that idea and agreed it shouldn't be a problem. So YAY!

    He checked on little man's position. Best way to do that with my uterus is an internal exam. He sure is head down! That's one less thing for me to think about, since it is something I am 'at risk' for - breech baby, that is.

    Anyway, he said I'm a good 1 cm and he seems to think I'll go any day now. His words, "If you make it into April, I'm going to bet it won't be far into it." WHOA!!! OK!

    He even laughed and said "If you're really ready and keeping thinking 'labor, labor, labor' then Saturday is good. I'm on call and will be looking for something to do." LOL! OK! I'm sssoooOOOOOOOooooo not THAT ready!


    So, guess I should go rearrange car seats, do some laundry, and really start figuring out this whole newborn baby thing again, eh? Last pregnancy I was all thoughts on baby and some on L&D. This time I think I've been all L&D and some on baby. EEK!

    yay for a good appt! I am curious as to why they'd make you stay 48hrs. Every hospital I've been too has a 24hr stay for a vag birth.

    Really?? I thought it was standard 48 hour for vag and 72 for c-sec. At least, that's what this and my other hospital say. Also, that's what our insurance covers. Interesting! But I'm glad I don't have to stay that long!

    (TMI warning)
    Woke up this morning around 3 or 4 or something and NOT feeling well AT ALL. Crampy and achey around my hips, belly, and lower back. Pressure all around too. Don't think I'm contracting, but the pain comes in little waves almost. Hard to tell though too. I had the shakes really bad. Was throwing up and had diarrhea. Not too far off from how I felt in labor with Grace. But I'm slowly starting to keep fluids down and the chills have subsided significantly.

    Called my doc because I'm concerned about dehydration. He said just to keep an eye on it. If the nausea and diarrhea continue, it's probably a stomach bug. If it subsides completely and I'm still feeling this way it's probably early labor.

    Anyway, I'm feeling so tired and achy. I've been questioning whether or not I can do this again.

    I just had to vent. Thanks for listening.
