I plan on sticking around.
Sounds like everyone had a pretty good Christmas. I think this was my best and worse Christmas ever, best because Dylan is really getting into it and worse because I was just so uncomfortable, cranky, and tired. Christmas eve we went to DH moms house ate a lot of food with a lot of salt in it made me feel sick. Christmas morning we did our thing at home than Christmas brunch we went to my dad and there was just so much food, watch all the kids (10 of them) open their gifts and we played Christmas games. Then we went home and had my mom come over and we cooked Christmas Dinner. It was just a lot for me to handle and I had to go to bed early I was just so tired.
I have a doc appt today I wonder if they will check me because I was having a lot of contractions last night and I was feeling really sick almost went to L&D, but glad we didn’t have to.
We had a lazy Christmas at home....it was awesome ;) my family all lives 2-3 hours away and we already did our Christmas party earlier in the month, and dh's parents have nothing to do with us even though they live 4 miles away, so we were on our own. We actually had to wake dd up and she as just too cute this year for Christmas! She got her dollhouse and umbrella she asked for from Santa (plus rain boots) and had lots of presents to open under the tree. My dh even told me to not worry about cooking, so we had ramen noodles for dinner lol. Like I said LAZY
I have a dr appt tomorrow I hope he checks me, I was having a crazy amount of contractions too on Sunday night /Monday day but never went in
I still haven't packed my hospital bag! I need to do this today!
Patricia- I think that schedule would wear anyone out! KUP on your appointment.
Lesli - I'm glad you had such a good time. I hope you're able to get that bag packed and that your appointment goes well.
Seems like we've had so many babies born already and it's not even Jan. yet! I'm jealous of all you who are already holding your LO!! How are you all making out??
I had a Dr. appt today, and was hoping to get checked, as at my last appt. she said she would start checking me at 37 weeks... but as soon as she came in the door to the room she said she just got called for an emerg. c/s and had to leave. So all she had time for was to check babes heartbeat and that's it. :/ Oh well... I have been lifting my DD and climbing stairs, taking down Christmas stuff etc. trying to get things moving. I'm so impatient.
my appt went well I am only 1 1/2 and 50% so we will see still wanting to hold on till Jan.
Amanda, sorry that she didn't have time to check you. Hopefully next week she'll be able to, unless you're already holding your LO by then ;)
Lesli, sounds like a nice, relaxing Christmas. My nesting has definately settled in. I got a wild hair yesterday and painted my entire living room. I'm rearranging and organizing the girls' room today and I plan on deep cleaning the bathroom. I've also started setting things up around the house for Reagan (her swing, bottles, bottle holder) and put the carseat in the car. I know that by doing all of these things she'll definately hold out until her c/s date, but it's nice to "feel" ready for her! I've also got my bag and her diaper bag packed and ready to go too!
Yes, those of you who have your LOs already....WE WANT PICTURES!!! Or at least I do anyway ;)
Amanda... my doc checked me today but I am only 1.5-2 and not really effaced at all... I know when I go into labor my cervix changes from nothing to 10cm pretty darn quickly so I don't see the point of being checked. We've been doing what we can to get things moving here as well. I just don't really know that any of that works unless your body is really ready to be in labor.
My doc did mention a potential induction date of next Friday. He might have miscalculated my due date. He'll call at some point and we will have to talk about that. I am afraid if I say something he is going to make me go an extra week. And he might. Oh well. I talked to an ob-gyn friend of mine who says I need to bring it up. Sigh.
Other than that, I had a great couple of days at work. I felt like I really contributed which is great in my very pregnant state. My computer is fixed... was broken... and I am having a lot of fun watching our new Roomba.
My parents flew up and we are having fajitas tonight. Life is good.
I am pretty sure I just lost my mucus plug :0
