Welcome to your lodge! YAY! I am getting my first internal tomorrow..she says I don't have to get it if I want..I do kinda want one though to see if there is anything going on with all the stuff that has been happening to my body lately! You will definitely have to post pictures from your shower!
Yes, I second the request for shower pics that's so fun! It's a little early to get anything from an internal, and I always remember my mil saying how she had one done 4 weeks before she was due with her last baby and she was already 4cm dialated, and didn't go on to have him until his due date or even a little later, needless to say it kept her from doing things she otherwise would have and she still wishes she wouldn't have known.
I guess this is going to be picture day for me, lol! Here are some belly shots, 36 weeks (i have an october space with all my belly shots in it if anyone is borde and wants to look at how i have grown, lol)
Rachelle- no, my last day wont be friday- unless i go into labor before Monday! lol! I plan on working up untill the baby is born. The joke in the office is that I will labor at work, and then deliver on my bosses desk. He has 4 kids, his wife did all 4 natural so he is a pro! lol!
I will post some shower picts from work and from my other showers. I don't have any shower picts on my work computer, they are all at home. Plus I think I have pictured you ladies out today! lol!
I have a dr appt today at 11:15. I actually see my dr this time, so im interested to heat what she has to say about me not wanting to get checked and a few other questions i have for her. Speaking of questions, i need to make a list..
Last night was our breastfeeding class! There were actualy 2 babies there so it was nice to see the "end" result. Now we are done with all our classes so Mr Cupcake can come at anytime! We are ready! LMAO!
For every woman who works right up until they deliver, I just do not know how you do it! I find these last few weeks that I am really tired, and I don't know I'd have the energy to keep working right up til the end. But I hope you DON"T go into labour while you're at work!!
Shella- I sit on my butt all day in the AC! Thats how I do it! I do get tired some days but I try to keep my energy up. I hope this helps me in labor. I'm trying to think of labor like a day at work, i know it can last longer, somedays seems like it never wants to end but i dig deep and keep truckin! lol!
Becca- Thanks and Thanks! lol! I can't wait for some cake! I love cake! Hopefuly it's white, thats my favorite!!!
Dr appt. went good! Got the good ol swab with the results to be announced next week, and if i go into labor before that they can call the lab for the results. I passed on the check, she said it wasn't a problem, though she did have a split second of shock on her face,lol! I asked what she would be checking for: dialation, if im thinning, if the babies head was down, and if my membranes had ruptured. She may have said something else also but I was excited to get an answer other then "traditional". She did feel my belly and he is head down! YIPPIE! She even said something like and heres his little head! And I said I'm so happy she said little! lol! Bp was good, i did gain 3 lbs, which is the most i have gained in a 2 week period. I was alittle sad at that but i know it's just because he is growing more. But I did tell DH we were laying off going out to eat, he says it's the ice cream I have been eating. HA what doe he know! lol! I go back next Thursday at 4pm, I see the "traditional" NP. I don't care for her much, think i will pass on the check then also. My SIL (who works at the hospital) said she is kinda ruff, i don't need no ruffness! I'm saving it all for the big day!
Nic!! I loved reading your birthing lodge and will continue to follow it!
I am like you, if I go naturally (praying I do) then i will be the first of all my RLF to do it. When I tell them I want to do it naturally, they laugh and tell me I will change my mind, but they say that if its what I want, then they hope I get it.
I love all your pics! Can I have a puppy or two? Good thing we don't live close by, I would be visiting them all the time.
I'm glad that your appointment went well and that cupcake is head down. My little man went back to being head down, hopefully he will stay that way too. Enjoy your shower tomorrow!!
