LeAnn - have a great trip!! It will be so nice to see your family and friends I'm sure!
Dovemama - I've been having the labor dreams since last week as well! I think it's due to my thoughts about Baby's viability, my constant BH contractions, and also my reading materials....I keep dreaming that the baby is coming out at the most random unexpected times like when I'm on the toilet, or sneezing... hopefully it's a sign of an easy labor to come!
LilyTiger - enjoy your newest house improvements this week (when you can return home)! I've hit that same "3rd trimester brick wall" - right on schedule, it seems. Up until now I have to say that I was sailing through this pregnancy and was sooo optimistic! Now, I feel just like every other 3rd trimester preggo gal - huge, tired, waddling, achy, whining.... booo.
ItHappened - enjoy your remaining visit w/your sister, although I can surely understand how the situation can be really stressful! It's always more work hosting guests, no matter how much you love them or how well intended they are. I'm sorry that no one else can keep up with your DS! Hopefully if/when you can get "paid" help, it'll be more productive as they'll be more accountable for the tasks and assistance that you're hiring them to do..... Hugs!!
JustChanti - you must be excited to see your teaching/classes wrapping up soon! And enjoy your birth class! I know the drag of moving, especially when you and DH have to do it separately, or in stages. Hopefully your month alone will go by quickly until you catch up with DH in Oregon..... but it sounds like things are working out in the right direction, as you previously mentioned your hopes of relocating there someday?
Penny - hoooray for feeling the Baby!! Isn't it the best!? And just like everyone promises, you'll soon be feeling him getting stronger and even more active! Sorry to hear about DH's unemployment running out, that's tough... I hope it's not causing you too much stress and that you'll find creative solutions to make ends meet.
Andaluza - good luck focusing and getting your priorities done this week!
LakeRuby - keep us posted on how your Hypnobirthing class goes! I would loooove to take it, but am pretty convinced that I couldn't possibly get myself in that deep "hypnotic" state. I am just a way too distracted type of person (hello ADD!)
AFM - I've been offline for a few days since DH was back home and we were completely caught up in each other just goofing off all weekend (he leaves again tomorrow night - it gets harder each month he's gone as I get more pregnant). 28 weeks here - hello 3rd trimester!! And suddenly (right on cue), I'm finding a lot more to complain about - achy legs and back, can't sleep, harder to move, losing my balance, winded.... yep, just like everyone said. Guess I just have to count my blessings for the easy 1st & 2nd tri that I had... these next 3 months might just make up for that! Tomorrow, we have a follow up u/s scan to see if my placenta previa has moved up - I'm pretty hopeful that it has, and am just excited to see our Baby Boy's face again!!
.... Good luck to all of you who are having your glucose tests this week! I have some sort of test at next week's checkup - but really not sure as they only told me that they're testing glucose and to eat well before my appt. But no other details than that - I have no idea if I'm supposed to take that drink that everyone's been talking about, or how long it should take. Completely in the dark, guess I'll have to just wait and see.....
