wondering how you are doing today?
Overdid it a little with the nesting yesterday. I cleaned out the car, washed DD's carseat (how the heck does it get so gross?) and I even dug out the infant seat, washed the padding and installed it. I think dh was about to have a panic attack looking at two carseats in the back . Then there's all of the regular chores and looking after a toddler.
I was a little sore when I went to bed last night, but it feels good to accomplish things.
As an update, Rob is doing a good job at keeping the gender a secret. Although, I've actually been torturing him a little bit. I have the change table stocked with sleepers and diaper shirts... some boyish and some girlie. I kept holding them up saying, "So, will our baby wear this pink sleeper?" And he has to hide his face from me... heehee

He knows the gender and you dont??? that would drive me crazy!! Next time around, I am finding out the gender and dh doesnt want to know.
God, keeping this a secret would kill me! We just spent the day with my parents and it was hard enough to not refer to our daughter using her name (which we are keeping secret). For the life of me, I could not imagine having to not say he or she or son or daughter... I'd totally blow it on a pronoun. So good DH is good at it!!

In the very early weeks I thought it may be a girl, but since then I've been almost convinced I'm having a boy. When I'm talking I usually refer to the baby has "he". I think I'll be surprised if a being with two x chromosomes comes out of there!
Today I made a list of things I have yet to do and buy before the baby arrives. I was able to cross a few things from my list.. I washed the padding for the bouncy chair and swing. I also washed my pouch sling (and Ella had to try it out.. she stills fits in a hip position quite well!). Things are almost ready!
And a rant...
I've been bothered today by something else my doctor said. While talking about the baby still being high, he asked how far Ella progressed (about a -1 station), and commented that "maybe it's just the shape of my pelvis". He usually seems like such an intelligent person.. but how can you even suggest that pelvis shape might be the reason for a high baby at this point? And with Ella, could it be her OP position with a nucal hand along with having a bed ridden momma who was numb from the armpits down and didn't even try to push her down? WTF? How can he just ignore all of the other variables and blame my poor pelvis? It couldn't possibly be the fault of medical interventions that I ended up with a c-section... it has to be a personal flaw in my bones (ie. my fault). *insert gigantic eye roll and sigh here*

Just remember docs are always looking for things to fix. Which means identifying and defining a problem. Those poor souls. All those solutions and not a problem to apply to them.
LMAO! Absolutely right!
I think a lot of times, doctors don't even clue in to the emotional impact of what amounts to them musing aloud. It's a personal irritation of mine, and I can completely understand why you'd be irked about it.
I still find it strange that HE finds it strange for a second baby to still be high. I wonder if he actually sees all that many second-time moms in his practice.
WOOT! You are 38 weeks as of RIGHT NOW! I know on account of my "on-call" alarm just went off on my phone (which will be pretty much glued to my side until baby's arrival!)
Don't forget: CAL-STEF
Your doc was being silly, of course it was a combination of all the things you mentioned and you know that. Try not to let him bring you down. I can't wait to see what you have, I'm guessing a boy I loved not knowing what we were having made labor easier for me!
