I'm glad to know I'm not the only one a bit stressed about child care while giving birth! Mags, I feel for you! My parents are our child care while at the hospital too, and I'm getting the "you're asking too much" feeling too- although what other choice do I have? Really. Their problem is that they're not letting me know when they are unavailable until almost the last minute. Thankfully, so far it hasn't been a problem, but last weekend would have been. I could go on a big long saga about it, but it's a moot point now that I still haven't had this baby.
Because of the cooler weather we've been having here in MN, I braved my brother's annual party yesterday! It's mostly outside, and in the past we've had temps over 100 degrees, making it truly miserable- especially w/ mosquitoes. So w/ a high of around 70 yesterday, I took dh and ds out to the farm to be social for a bit. It was so nice to not be sweating nonstop! DS ran for 3 hours straight- he was so excited to see the farm animals, see all the people, and hear the bands play (which were kinda loud to me, but I'm getting old). I did not stay late enough to hear my youngest brother's band play, which kinda bums me out because I haven't heard them yet, but I was exhausted.
Today my dh took the day off from job #2, and we spent what could be our last Sunday together as a family of 3. We had a really good day- didn't do anything too exciting, but it was good. And I am tired. I've been really busy these past few days, I guess I'm trying to keep busy to make time go by, and to spend extra time "doing" things w/ ds. It's been fun, but it's wearing me out. Tomorrow might need to be one of those "stay home" days.
I'm REALLY tired of my pelvic area hurting! What is with that?!?! It's like my I've been punched in the pubic bone.
And I had some mucous on Thursday, but nothing since. AND, not many contractions- even BH- since then either. I seriously think she's just making herself at home in there and not planning on exiting anytime soon.
