I'm officially 37 weeks today, so that means I'm all set to birth at the Birth Center! I'm super relieved. Had a bout of a bad tummy bug last week that sent me to the hospital with contractions and it just confirmed how much I DON'T want to have this kiddo at THAT hospital, specifically (it's the closest to our house). Thankfully, after a couple of IV bags of fluids, the contractions stopped and I got to go home. I seriously didn't think I'd make it to 37 weeks after that.
And, of course, I'm celebrating making it to 37 weeks with a nasty head cold that hit me hard last night. ::eye roll:: Here's to hoping I can get over this fast. Sleeping was miserable last night...er, tonight...regardless...I'm posting at 4:30 AM, you do the math.
man, that sounds rough! i'm glad the contractions stopped! congrats on 37 weeks!
i'm sharing the pleasure of a head cold with you- i've always picked one up in the final weeks of pregnancy. i take it as a sign that the baby's not coming yet- each time, my body has waited to get over the cold and then restrengthened before labor kicked in. i like to think that we're getting a chance to pass on all these fantastic antibodies to the baby (but i really have no idea). hope you feel better soon!
