i am feeling pretty good -- both emotionally and physically. the party today wasn't as hard as i thought it would be. our organization is small and very much like a family, so i'm thankful that it wasn't too teary. our team is 10 people and it's very hard feeling out-of-the-loop with them. otherwise, i think the transition to being home will be easy.
i feel good physically as well. i'm ready for cheerio to arrive, but i'm comfortable enough (most days! ) to continue to wait. i feel pretty lucky with that.
Sorry I didn't chime back in here, but I felt great for my entire 3rd pregnancy! I was nervous he was going to REALLY late as my edd approached and I still felt great, but he was my earliest How's your weekend going?
thanks for the welcome, chimmy!
we had a good weekend, vanessa. saturday was busy, but friday and sunday were restful. i think we took judah to the pool all three days, and that makes for a relaxing hour or so for me. i love floating in the water!
other wise, i'm feeling pretty good. i have days that i'm achier than others, but usually feel well. today, everything between my hips aches, but i have a lot of energy and generally feel well.
i have an appointment tomorrow, and i know she'll want to check me, so we'll see how things go. otherwise, it should be uneventful, but i'll let you know!
I just got all caught up on your lodge. Sounds like things may slowly be happening. Any new news on the interview process for your DH?
i had my 39+ appointment today, just shy of 40 weeks. crazy...
BP and babe's HTs are good. i didn't gain any weight, which made me happy -- i don't need to gain more
the rest of the appointment was interesting. i declined to be checked, which she allowed. however, she doesn't want me to go past 41 weeks. several things she's said over the last month have made me think they've had some difficult births since judah's birth, which has influenced her desire to not go too late with this babe. i never was encouraged to be super proactive to encourage labor with judah.
so, she offered to check and "massage" me, but let me decline. however, i have an appointment for monday morning (where she will stretch/sweep me) and a NST for the afternoon. i'll be 40w4d.
i'm really torn for several reasons. first, michael and my sister both have a part time job tutoring that will start next week and, if i'm going to encourage cheerio to come, i'd prefer to do it this week. BUT, i really feel like it's best for me and babe if cheerio decided to come on his/her own. i want to exercise caution and care for this child, but don't want to jump to anything...not that a sweep is necessarily jumping
michael and i have discussed going in thursday or friday for the sweep to see if we can have the babe this weekend. or, just waiting until monday. (also, he doesn't want to have to pay for the NST if we don't have to, so that plays into it ).
anyway, what would you do? any thoughts or suggestions?
WELLL... We had decided that my mw would try and help us get things going the day after my edd, but Isaac came all on his own that day You never know, I wouldn't stress about it much as cheerio will actually only come when its time! Glad to hear your doing well, and I hope your spirts stay up for this last bit, your doing a great job!
