Great intro! I can't wait to read your birth story!
I'm on a cleaning spree. I didn't nest last time, so this is all new to me. I've washed the car seat cover, and scrubbed the plastic part. I've vacuumed, dusted and plan to wash the floors tomorrow. I've got the cradle bedding all washed and it's ready for a baby!!
My ankles are swelling. I look like I have two sprained ankles, it's a little uncomfortable. I also have a lot of pain in my hands and joints. Not huge problems, but a little annoying. I have a dr's appt tomorrow morning, and I find out my GBS status. So wish me - vibes please!!!!! Also, we have a doula appt tomorrow night to go over our comfort measures, etc. I'm excited to learn some positive ways to manage labor.
((((negative GBS Vibes))))
make sure you take lots of breaks so you dont wear yourself out! You never know when labor can sneak up on you, and you wouldnt want to be caught exhausted from cleaning all day...
I say this because today I spent 2 hours on my hands and knees scrubbing the bathroom tub and floor and the base boards...and I couldnt do anything else the rest of the day! I literally couldnt lift anything for a couple hours...can you imagine if my water broke at that time
Good luck at your appt...are you going to get checked?
sending negative GBS vibes your way!
I agree on the taking breaks during nesting. You have a big physical event coming up and you don't know when it will start!
I nested with DD, but when it came to the day before she was born (I was in early labor all day) I spent most of the day in and out of the tub and napping I think your body will tell you when to stop I hope your GBS test comes back - tomorrow! KUP and have a great day.
Here's sending you tons of NEGATIVE GBS vibes!!!!
Woot!! I'm so excited, now I don't have to have the IV. Everything else is good, bp, urine, baby h/b is in the 160's and has been for quite some time.
The dr told me to get some wrist braces for my carpal tunnel and to try and drink more water to combat the swelling. I picked up some braces at Target, so hopefully they'll help me sleep better. I woke up so many times last night and my arms were completely numb and painful. I could barely use them to push myself out of bed to pee. eek.
At my appt, the nurse told me to get undressed from the waist down. I said, what for? She said "for a cervical check, you're over 36wks right?"
I told her that I had my 36 wk appt last week and that I declined the check then and don't want to be checked at all. She gave me an annoyed/confused look, but then said that's fine, you don't have to be checked. Well, no kidding. I had no idea that they check people every week there. Glad I'm not going along with that.
So we've got our doula appt tonight and I feel like I'm getting all the final preparations in place for the birth. I'm getting so excited!!
Yay for no IV and GBS-!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Sounds like you're doing really great!
