I started the chat thread because I had a lot to chat about.
(Just gonna start off from my stressed thread instead of going through the whole story again) DH did get to see his father & say goodbye. He came home Sunday night & his dad passed away at 3:09 Monday morning. We are all very sad, but trying to focus on the blessings. He was so lucky to have been able to go to Florida & see him & say his goodbye - all his siblings made it. We are also very lucky he did not suffer long.
I am thankful baby did not chose to come while he was gone. I started having contractions after he got home. They lasted all night but never became painful or regular. I had my 38 week appointment on Monday. I asked to be checked because I was still contracting and I felt like things were changing. I was a finger tip & thick on Thursday. Well, I was 3cm and 75% effaced on Monday. Big change in a few days. I really felt like yesterday was the day, but after contractions all day it fizzled out & I slept like a baby last night. Which I so needed after not sleeping at all the night before. Oh & I was gbs+ at 36 weeks but I had to be tested again last week because they forgot to test for resistance because I can't take penicillin. Guess what? I am now gbs -. How does that happen? I will not question it, just be thrilled to not have to deal with it anymore! My MW had no explanation. So sorry for the long post. It's been a long past few days. I am still contracting like crazy with no regular pattern or pain. So while I think it could be any minute now, It could still be weeks :)
How is everyone else?
How are the rest of my New Englanders getting slammed with yet more snow? We got 30 inches the first storm, 18 the next, and potentially 12 more today. I have renamed Connecticut the Snow Day state, lol. We have had 6 snow days and counting...
