(We have a scheduled c section on the 10th.) Maybe go for swims, pick cucumbers, make pickles, sleep if I can... Looking forward to seeing more baby pictures this week!!
Enjoy your week! How exciting that your babies will soon be in your arms!

I go to make that appointment and find out he's out all next week as well. I'm thinking - REALLY? I am a complex person. I don't trust many people and I certainly don't want a new person all up in my business either. It makes me VERY uncomfortable. I am so anxious and uncomfortable with everything as it is and she knows this. After all this time now I REALLY feel like just a number, you know? She didn't even try to put me on the induction schedule this week, but I know it would be next week at some point since I'd be 41 plus weeks. I picked up homeopathic cohashes on the way home. My husband and I aren't even talking at this point. I felt so alone this morning before my appointment. Now? I just feel abandoned. Sorry for the vent, guys.
I'm sorry to hear all of this. I hope the cohashes help. And please don't apologize for venting...

I think it finally sank in that I'm going to be having a baby very very soon. I'm still not sure if I can comprehend that fact. Any other first time mama's still in denial?
I thought I was the only person who had a shower so close to due date! (I just had mine this past weekend - at 38 weeks). Have a great time. Hopefully you'll get a lot of the items you still need...
I am a first time mama, and it is all so amazing...Just the notion/sensations that a human is in my very large belly is rather surreal, and then to think that some time in August this baby will be in my arms...It's hard to wrap my head around it all...

Thank you guys :)
Beckily I hope that tomorrow you'll have more options available. And there is still time for baby to turn on his/her own.
As for me, I had a cervical check yesterday, and am 1 cm dilated, but not much to report in the way of effacement. I'm due in 2 weeks but I don't feel any contractions/cramping yet. My doctor advised me to take long walks and do squats to get things going. She likes to induce a week after due date (!) so I've got take measures to avoid that. I took a long ass walk in the rain this evening which turned out to be real nice because it was just me, a couple of seagulls, and the rare occasional human walking along the East River in the fog...
