I agree - I think asking your sister down would be a good idea, and maybe help you relax and go into labor. I hear you about doing less for this pg too - I did less for my second than my first, and even less this time. Honestly, though, when I think about it, I don't know that there are even pictures out there of my mom pg with me, let alone professional ones. She certainly didn't do a journal or a belly cast, and I haven't missed any of it. So I am hoping my girls feel the same way....Sme
So glad you got your phone working! I would be so lost without mine!Rhi
I take immodium daily for a spastic colon. It is category B, and for me it is either that or constant diahrrea - I figure it is better to get nutrients into my body than have the baby get a small dose of meds. And both my girls have been born with just the one head and all. Hope it works fast for you and you feel better soon!Ericka
Going from one to two is a huge learning curve - it took me about nine months to adjust, and that was without having had a preemie in the NICU. But you can do it. You have done such an amazing job through this pg and Jennings' birth, I know you will make it through this too.sew_crafty_girl
Oooh, I hear you on the mama guilt. Dd1 was honored in an assembly yesterday. The school is just four blocks away but between the u/s Tuesday and the stress of yesterday, I was seriously afraid that any physical activity would put me into labor. At least her dad was there, and taped it for me. She was sweet about it, but I still felt sad.Niki
Hope the shower gets fixed today! And bonus about the plumber being happy to talk about birth tub hookups!!afm
Dh got our insurance applications in last night, and went to the store and brought me cookies, cake, and ice cream, so I got my fix. I also informed him that Sofie and I had decided we were going to need doughnuts this weekend.
So, today I just have two more briefs to do, and I am officially on maternity leave!!
And my friend is coming to do our last set of pg photos. I even waxed my brows and shaved my legs - two things I really wanted to get done before the photos and birth. So once my work is done and the photos are done, I will feel ok if I go into labor, even if it is a little early. Which, of course, means it will be at least another week at a minimum, if prior experience holds true, before anything happens.
