Just got home from my appointment with the MW.. I thought I felt the baby drop a few days ago and she confirmed that and thinks she's approaching 7 pounds right now. I've been losing bits of my mucus plug for the last few days and I'm still having fairly regular cramps, so hopefully I'll get to meet my baby soon!
It could definitely still be a few more weeks but I'm doing what I can to move things along, drinking my RRL tea and :ahem:
with DH. I'm really excited now, I feel ready
I took the 3-hour GTT on Friday (yes, the day after Thanksgiving.. It was SO. HARD. to leave the pumpkin pie in the fridge on Thursday night!), and my numbers came back completely normal. I doubt there's anything they would have done at this point if it turned out I did have GD, I've been trying to eat better anyway because I just feel better and have more energy when I do.
DH told me last night that if he did some more reading, he'd be okay if we "accidentally" have the baby by ourselves at home
He's so sweet, I would not have expected him to be okay with that. We'll probably end up going to the hospital late in labor, I wouldn't mind having other people around since this is my first and I have no idea what labor is going to be like for me, but maybe we'll actually plan to UC with the next one. I've come to terms with having my baby in a hospital so I'll be happy either way. I really like both the MW and Dr., and the hospital's policies are a lot more mom- and baby-friendly than I expected they would be. We'll see what happens once I actually go into labor.
Hehe.. one of my cats is SUCH a toddler. She likes to follow me around in the kitchen, and when I stop paying attention to her she'll stand on her hind legs and pull the cabinets open, like "Hey Mom! Look what I'm doing!"
