oh wow! my very own lodge!
I can't believe I'm 3 weeks away from my due date! For some reason, I feel like I'll go before it. It could be wishful thinking though b/c DH starts vacation in 2 weeks and it would be so wonderful if he could be with me at home for the first 2 weeks of our son's life! of course, I want him to stay put until he's ready!
I'm getting very excited about making it to 37 weeks because that means I can definitely deliver at the birthing center (barring any other complications of course). DH really wants to catch the baby when he's born and he's really hoping he can.
I've been losing my mucus plug for 2 weeks now...little by little. I wish that indicated more, but I'll take what I can get! Baby has dropped a little, but I still feel like he has a way to go. I keep getting the little sharp pains near or on my cervix, but I don't know if that means anything.
My feet get so swollen, so I can stay on them for any length of time. But I get so freaking bored lying on the couch with them elevated. I'm starting to walk a little - but in the evenings when it's cooler to help prevent too much swelling.
I'm really praying that I get the birth I want. I really want to avoid any pain medications. I also pray that BF'ing goes well.
Anyways, I guess that's it for now. I'm not really sure what else to say at this point!
Welcome to your lodge!
I had a bit of bloody show several hours ago. And then when I went to the bathroom again, there was more pink/brown mucus. I know it can still be far off, but at least my body is doing something.
Of course the backache I have makes me wonder too, but then again, it's probably just the way I'm sitting on this awful couch!
No matter what, I'm still really excited!!!
Congratulations and welcome to your lodge!
Welcome to your lodge, and it sounds like you're making some progress!
