I gave up the internet for Lent so have been offline for awhile. How is everyone?
I'm 35 weeks today - I can't believe it. I'm feeling really good. I was really sore with pelvic/hip pain toward the end of the 2nd trimester/beginning of the third but I went to the chiropractor and he fixed me right up and I've felt great since. Some heartburn and getting up to pee 2 times a night, but otherwise, good. I'm feeling stressed about getting everything done. I have my birth pool but haven't inflated it yet and I still need all my birth supplies. Plus, I'm just trying to do regular household stuff before the baby comes!
We have a boy's name - Zachary Owen, but are stuck on a girl's name. I like Emma and dh likes Claire. I like Claire too, but have always loved Emily or Emma. I had a falling out with a high school friend named Emily so I always felt weird about using the name but have gotten over that and felt that Emma was close enough without actually using Emily. And even though Emma is rated as really popular, I don't know of any babies named Emma around here. Tons of 5-8 year olds, but not many now so I'm Ok with a popular name. And while I like Claire, I have just sort of been thinking of this baby as an Emma when I think of her (if it is a girl). Any opinions on names?
I'm starting to feel like this baby may come on the early side. Both my kiddos came at 38 weeks so I'm sort of thinking it'll be the same, but I wouldn't be surprised if it came at 37 weeks even. I don't know if that's just residual fear of going into pre-term labor (even though 37 weeks isn't) or if just instincts or what, but I am feeling lots of pressure to get things done soon!
I hope everyone else is doing well!
