Pretty good. My hips kill me when I wake up in the morning, but otherwise I still feel good. I've been having BH contractions for weeks and sometimes they're pretty intense.
I had a midwife appointment yesterday and I'm measuring 40 weeks, but she thinks a lot of it is just how I'm carrying. The baby only feels about 6.5-7 lbs now, and guessing that he'll probably come in the next week or two (Daphne was born at 38w3d), he'll probably be less than 8 lbs. I'm 1cm dilated, 70% effaced and my cervix is very soft. Baby is at a -1 station. So everything is looking good so far! Tyson doesn't get home until Sunday night, so I'm hoping the full moon doesn't get me going on Saturday.
One of my good friends is coming to stay with me on Saturday night. DH is home Sunday night through early Wednesday morning. His sister is flying in on Tuesday and staying until Saturday. My BFF is coming on Saturday the 20th and staying until Sunday night when Tyson comes back home. Then Tyson is home until Wednesday morning again...so I have someone to babysit me for awhile, lol.
A lady had her baby in the car on the way to the birth center last week when I was there for my appointment. It freaked DH out, so he lined up sitters for me so that I won't have to drive myself.
Ha, ha! Tyson's so funny. Although, the help will be nice. Expecially with Daphne!
I didn't even realize Saturday is a full moon! I hope this little guy waits for his Daddy, but I still think Saturday too. Sounds like you're doing well. You could just hang out that way for a couple more weeks.
Is Tyson taking some time off after you deliver?
That's funny about him lining up "babysitters" for you. I know I wasn't much company by that point in my pregnancy, but it was nice having my mom around those last few days.
The help will be nice! If anything, to keep your mind off of the wait and help pass some time! A friend of mine had her baby in the car on the way to the hospital 3 years ago. CRAZY! Her dh was driving, LOL.
I hope he comes when T is home but glad to hear you won't be alone! You are SO close!!!!
It sounds like you're going to be well taken care of I kept thinking T would be here early b/c of all of the BH, but he ended up arriving at the same point in my pg with J! So, you never know I also hope you little man waits for his dad to be home. Is your birthing center far?
p.s. I hated that hip pain!!! That was one of my most severe symptoms and it was a major PITA!! The good news is, it subsided soon after giving birth... darn hormones!
Mommy to 2 amazing little boys!
