yay - more babies!!!!! congrats, starkitty, on your beautiful Ava Grace - I love that name! and congrats to you, islandgirl, for bringing Jake into the world... wow!!! Hope you new mamas and babes are doing well.
-just realized I haven't posted in a while - Lisa/playfulmama, I owe you a big congratulations, too! Wow, again!!!! All you mamas have given me a lot of inspiration...
There was a slight chance I was gonna join the mama ranks yesterday - Monday's nonstress test showed one (minor) deceleration, and my fluid was on the low side, but the nurse noted that I was probably a bit dehydrated because it was almost 100 degrees here on Sunday and Monday was hot, too. So I went home and waited for Thursday's test; if anything showed up then, they'd send me "upstairs" (labor & delivery) for observation and possibly induction. Well, as much as I've railed against "unnecessary" interventions, I felt ready yesterday to start having this baby! But everything looked fine on both the NST and the ultrasound (god is his face cute!), so here I am, still a mama in waiting. I really shouldn't complain - my due date is May 27th, still 10 days away - but I'm huge and tired and achey and really anxious to meet this baby! I'f I'm gonna be sleepless half the night anyway, I want some company!
So, Serenity, I'm still here to keep you company! You too, Peggianne and Esperanza and LucyDog! (hope I didn't leave anyone out...) Ruhiel/Pinfeather, I have a feeling that you've had your babe given that you were having contractions and stuff, and hope everything went well - but if I'm wrong, we're here for you! And enjoy those massages... mmmmm.
