Just wanted to update you.
I made it! I'm 36 weeks today. No complications thus far - so if all remains on track we are on for a homebirth!
I've asked the babies to stay put for at least another week or two it that's what they need. I'm not in a hurry to have them out. I think mentally I'll feel more confident heading into labor if they are at least 37 weeks gestation.
I'm feeling pretty well. Had a bit of a nesting frenzy yesterday. I over did it and was very sore last night, but I woke up this am feeling back to normal.
I'm starved all the time but there is no room for food! Now I know why pregnant women crave milkshakes, it's about the only thing that goes down easily. I actually indulged in one last night at 11pm when I was so hungry I couldn't fall asleep.
The birthing tub is in the garage, ready to get pulled into the bedroom when we need it. The homebirth supplies are in a box in the spare room. The mattress got covered with a waterproof pad last night. Sheets and towels are washed and ready to go. I feel very organized and ready, but in no rush!
My BP was up a bit the past couple of days, but nothing to fret about. Next week I see my Midwife on Monday, have an ultra sound on Tuesday and see my OB and have a NST on Wednesday. Overkill I know.
I have refused all cervical checks from my OB. Glad I did too as I did test positive for GBS.
That's it in a nutshell!
