Lifeguard and Starling: so sorry about the GBS! What a bummer.
Ha! Both of these. I felt great up until about a week ago, and then I think baby dropped...now my feet are unrecognizable, I feel like I'm about to start my period, BH contractions are non-stop, I'm peeing every 30 minutes (or less, if I happen to cough or sneeze), and rolling over in bed is a Herculean effort.
AKislandgirl: First, I'm glad you're over your cold! Second, you probably don't remember, but you replied to one of my posts last week about our planned anniversary trip, and you said that it really sounded like I'd be happier/more relaxed just staying home. I really didn't want to think so because I was so looking forward to the trip, and I was afraid that DH would be terribly disappointed as well if we bailed, but your advice kept running through my head and the more I thought about it the more I realized you were right. So...we stayed home, and it was WONDERFUL. We still took two days off work like we'd planned, but we just puttered around the house nesting and cuddling and playing games and just really appreciating these last few weeks together before baby comes. So I guess I just wanted to say thanks ...it turned out to be just what we both needed, and we had a lovely anniversary at home (as DH said...hey, we live 5 minutes from Mt. Rainier. We're already in a vacation home!).
