Carrie - the ring part of the ring sling is why I much rather would wrap. I just can't picture it being comfortable, though people have told me they really liked theirs.
MW: hope you are feeling better!
JJ: I'm tired, but can't be comfortable sleeping for long. Not that DS will let me, anyway! take it while you can get it! I hear you on your DH, but not much to be done about it. and bummer about the SPD - take it easy -
AfM: I have been super emotional the last couple days (hoping this is a sign of the end - FX!) I totally exploded on DH . . .and he was like, wow, I didn't mean to make you that upset. I told him it is partly hormones, but partly really valid stuff. Don't ignore the stuff that's valid because hormones blew it out of proportion! Anyway, feeling a little better yesterday and today, but boy, labor day! I was a wreck. I was either crying or trying not to most of the day. Not fun, because I really, really, hate crying. And I feel like I've been leaking fluid, but surely not, as it is only maybe once or twice a day the last couple days I've felt a little trickle. maybe just extra fluid down there in general . . .
So I'm going to go ahead and say it - I am ready to be done and meet this little girl! - the pregnancy itself doesn't bother me - I'm uncomfortable, but it's bearable - but I don't like being super emotional and volatile. I'm ready to not be working. at least for a while, I have to go back to work by 8 weeks PP.
I need to pack my hospital bag though, and call our short term disability company to put them on the alert.
JJ: I agree re: full belly pants, unless you find some comfy underbelly ones. try to find ones that are pretty thin stretchy material over the belly, those are more comfy - IMHO - another thing that bummed me out this weekend was tearing my one really comfy pair of maternity pants (non work ones) so now I just have my shorts and dress clothes. ugh.
I need something to cheer me up! I've got coffee . . . .
ETA: 37 week picture. the ladies at work think I've dropped a bit. I hope so! I can say I feel like I can eat a little more than I used to, but it's hard to say.
