I've been feeling funky and have gotten a few contractions. Haven't dropped yet, although this being my 2nd full term birth, I don't know if I will before labor.
My parents are in Canada right now, and I just found out from my sister (who is also up there with them, all visiting my brother) that my dad was hospitalized with a leg infection.
This is his 3rd one, and he is doing much better now. I'm glad he went in. So they were supposed to be back tomorrow, but now they will be leaving Friday at the earliest, and they're driving back here to AL, so a 2-3 day trip (with him having been in the hospital, they might stretch things out a bit). So now I'm a bit stressed, worried about my dad. I told my sister this was sure to send me into early labor.
My last two kids were born in relationship to days that DH traveled or was supposed to travel. My water broke with #1 just 6 hours after DH got home from Seattle (a wee bit far from AL!), and with #2, I went into labor the morning DH was supposed to head up to Boston for a day. So since my mom is supposed to watch my kids, is this baby going to come while my parents are out of town?
Hopefully not. And luckily, I DO have plenty of folks I could call as backup to watch the kids.
My midwife goes on call for me on Tuesday, when I'll be 36 weeks. I finally remembered to order my birth kit TODAY, so hopefully it will be here soon. It's one of those custom kits from In His Hands, and I don't know how long those take to put together and send out, but hopefully they'll send it out soon. And I guess I need to start shopping for my other birth supplies, like table cloths and such! I can't believe the time is coming so soon! Eek!
