TOO FUNNY!! We call all private parts by the same "name" and it doesn't seem to bother the kids that they look different I'm SO excited to see your little boy, come on out now little man!
I had my appointment today. It was pretty uneventful. My weight gain seems to have leveled off, which is what happened around this point during my last pregnancy also. BP was 110/70, which is great, lower than I remember it being towards the end last time, and everything was fine with the urine and fundal height, and heartbeat sounded great. Dr. I. said that the hosptial has all my info and a copy of my birth plan, and she gave me her pager and cell numbers so we can call her before we head in to the hosptial, but if for some reason we can't call, she said my file instructs the hospital to call her. She didn't even offer to do a cervical check, but she said we might want to do one next week. She asked if I had any signs that anything was happening soon, and I said nothing except for some occasional pressure waves and feeling like he is a little lower. I asked if his head is in the center now, and she said it is close enough that she could move it to the center. My next appointment is next Thursday.
Sounds like a good appointment! I'm getting excited for you, won't be long now!
Yay for a great appt!
Sounds like things are going just fine! Looking forward to hearing your birth story! (I know it could still be a bit, but I am!)
Well, it's 4:00 am and I haven't really slept yet. I got up because I was having pressure waves that were keeping me from sleeping and I wanted to time them with "contraction master," but now that I'm sitting on my birth ball, I can barely feel them.
I had a really busy day today. Went to the library for storytime with DD, then decided to go straight to the grocery store since I already had DD in the car and everything. Then I came home and my friend with the daughter DD's age called me and said she was going to Costco (she has a membership and I don't) and she had told me she'd take me with her next time she was going if it wasn't on the way back from one of her prenatal appointments. I said I had just gone grocery shopping, so I might not need to get much, but I'd come along. When she got here, she was saying what a nice day it was, and she asked if I had been to a certain park yet, and I said I hadn't but had seen it and wanted to go. It is kind of in a weird location that you have to walk to, so along with DD's carseat, we put her stroller in their car, and we went to the park. I noticed a few pressure waves while we were walking, but I just walked through them instead of stopping like I normally would have. We put both of our DDs in a shopping cart (nice that Costco has double child seats in their carts) and walked around Costco, tried a few free samples, and my friend did her shopping, and I ended up buying a box of diapers for DD because they are a really good deal there, and it will be nice to not have to buy any for her for a while. Then the 4 of us shared a frozen yogurt. Then, they took us home, and she let me have some of the huge bag of spinach that she bought because it was so cheap and she didn't know if she'd be able to use it all. We obviously really are both pregnant, because we forgot to take DD's carseat out of their car, so her DH brought it over later. Anyway, it was a lot more walking than I normally do and I was feeling worn out. DD went to bed early because she didn't get a nap. DH got home around 11:00, and we had some "time" together. Then we wanted to watch the good parts of the Olympics that we had recored, so we ended up not going to bed until about 1:00, and then the pressure waves started.
I'm going to try to go back to bed now.
It's good to do lots of walking, but just make sure you are balancing it with rest too. Sounds like you may be in the beginning stages, keep us posted on how your pressure ways are doing.
Costco is good for double carts, but it's a trap too, I can never get out of the store without spending $100 even if I only go for one thing and don't need any groceries. But I like their Kirkland diapers too, they are essentially the same diapers as Huggies Supreme but at a better price.
