Based on how my body is feeling this morning, I SHOULD have wimped out and not gone to the fair. Wow. I feel like I have been run over by a truck. It probably didn't help that it rained a lot yesterday and we were running off and on to get out of the rain. Me running 9 months pregnant probably looked awfully hilarious to anyone who saw me.
It was very fun to let the kids ride the rides though. That was worth it. They enjoyed it.
I am off to my doctors appointment. Will update when I get back.
Well I am discouraged. My results for Group B Strep came back and apparently I am positive for it. That really surprised me because I have never had it with my other two pregnancies. I was worried but they assured me that it would be okay.
Other than that, I am still only 1 1/2 centimeters dilated and 60% effaced. The same as last week, but she said my cervix was a lot softer so that is good.
My BP was good and baby sounds really good. Her heart was 135 BPM and very strong. She didn't say anything about her flipping so I am assuming she is still head down. I am measuring 38 1/2 weeks so the baby is still growing just fine.
So besides the GBS being positive, the appointment went well. Now I am just feeling down. Hopefully getting a full day of good packing in will take my mind off of it.
Well I got a decent nights sleep despite the aching and numb legs. Hopefully we get all the rest of the packing done today. We are closing on our house tomorrow and want to be out of here by tomorrow also. Have to clean our place on Friday and hand the keys over on Saturday. I will be glad when we are done with this house and don't have to worry about packing, cleaning, etc. anymore. Then we can just wait for baby to come and then when we can close on the house we are buying, we will have to move again. The good thing is that we will be all packed up already so it won't be as hard.
I am positive for GBS this time and have always been negative. It surpised me too. It's not a big deal though, just some antibiotics. Yay for a good nights sleep! GL with the rest of your packing.

Wow. What an intro! I personally couldn't handle moving right now. We're waiting until Nate is a few months old 'cause I can barely move! You are a strong woman going natural with the pit!

We don't really have a choice with the moving thing. We put our place on the market the beginning of August and someone made an offer two weeks later. We really wanted to sell our little townhome first before buying a house. We couldn't afford it otherwise. We couldn't risk paying two mortgages until this place sold and we needed the money made on this place for a down payment on our first real house.
So although it is super hard on me, I am glad we are selling first so we don't have to worry about any of those things. It is extremely hard on me physically though. Sigh. I will be glad when we are all packed up and out of here. I am not looking forward to being in someone else's house with a newborn for the first month temporarily but we have not other choice. The inconvenience was worth selling our place first though.
I had no idea how bad the Pitocin was going to be. It was so awful. I hope I never have to endure Pitocin again.
I hope you have a good rest of the day. I know your going to be just fine, but I sure hope your have lots of help with the moveing. I'm gettting excited to see you babe and hear you story!
My sister is actually over here right now helping me so much. She said to me, "Just sit down and relax." And she is packing up the kitchen. It is so helpful. She also brought us dinner.
