Today I am feeling super aching in the pelvic region...sigh. Compared to my first, Elijah is sitting really low, and I totally feel it.
I can't believe I am officially full term tomorrow. Everytime someone asks when I am due, I just tell them "Now." It is so much easier than having to say, "Well, Im due in 3 weeks," and then have them ask if its twins, or if I am sure about my dates...UGh...lol
My mom took me to lunch today, and I ate like a pig. It was sooo delicious, I even ate dessert!
Fabulous story! I like picturing camp counselors in love
I don't blame you for not wanting a c-section again. I would feel betrayed and like it was unnecessary. Good for you for researching and advocating for yourself this time!
Daniel came at 36 weeks 5 days (fat and healthy) so it's really hard for me to not consider that MY "full term". But I wish he had held on longer... bake baby bake!
Loved reading your intro! I can't wait for you to have your VBAC!
Welcome to your lodge! TFS your first birth story. I hope you get the birth you want this time!

My Ovulation Chart
I am a bit sore right now. I had my 37 week appointment this morning. The doc did my Strep sample and a cervical check. He says I am a fingertip dilated and 50% effaced, but that essentially means nothing to me...lol!
DH, DS, and I went to Target to start a small registery. My mom wants to do a coming home/welcoming party at my house after Elijah is born. She said that people would want to bring gifts, and doing a registry is the easiest way for people to know what I need. I think I might have put like 30 whole items on it..lol.
I had a couple of contractions while walking around, so that is good. I will probably take a walk later this evening around 7pm once the sun is down.
I am totally regretting staying up until 1am last night. DH and I sorted and sorted and organized a couple of rooms. I have severe nesting right now, so I just cant stop. Finally around 10:30pm we sat down to fold laundry and ended up buying a pay-per-view movie Clash of the Titans.
So, I am halfway falling asleep at work this morning. Ugh.
On the pregnancy front, I am super sore in my pelvic floor (look at those rhyming skillz!), but other than that I am just trucking along.
It's so frustrating when your mind wants so much done and your body just can't keep up! Hope you get some good rest tonight
So, I have had three contractions all within 20 mins. They have lasted about 2 minutes each. Im chalking these up to braxton hicks...Ugh. I can feel some very low pains below my pelvic bone when I stand. Hopefully these are doing something...lol.
Anyways, back to scrubbing the bathrooms. One down, one to go.
