hey all... still pregnant and looking for "baby this weekend" thoughts! :)
Saw the midwives and my bishops score was even lower than it was last week so they couldn't even offer a "vbac safe induction". All they could offer was a r/cs this afternoon. :( I put on my game face, used the glowing NST and U/S results to get everything pushed back to Monday. Monday morning I'll have another NST and U/S, meet with the surgeon, and, if nothing is happening by then, schedule the c/s (hopefully for wed so the babe will have a full 42 weeks).
But I'm feeling really beat up by all this... especially since when we got home after what turned out to be an extremely long and depressing visit... I had two voice messages from the child care programs we just enrolled in, asking why the kiddos hadn't been there. Ok, I'm thrilled that they noticed and all that, but come on! We paid, we're enrolled, it's an afterschool drop off program, and I am just not in the mood to deal with this.
So I've decided that I'm going to find a way to just pamper myself this weekend and ignore Monday. Once DH is home from work tonight I am basically handing him the kids and putting in ear plugs. I'm fed up, exhausted, worn down, and just not dealing well with ANYTHING right now. I've had a hellishly busy week, I'm worried about the health and longevity of my dad and my MIL, I don't have child care for the older kiddos if the babe really does arrive on Mon or Tues, and I'm DONE! My goal now is to eat, sleep, and not give a flying hoot at the screams, smacks, and shattering glass noises coming from whatever space the kids inhabit. And to make DH deal with the school programs and all that. He should be home by 7pm and that's it. The weekend shall be miiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiine!
So, happy birthy vibes for the weekend (tomorrow is the ever so geeky 9/10/11, and sunday is Dh's birthday so both days would rock) or at least total relaxation and ultimate denial of Monday's challenges please! :)
