I keep trying to post on this thread from my phone, but I swear my phone just hates this thread as inevitably, I'd hit the wrong key and lose everything... over and over and over... so... I'm finally on the REAL computer and better not get this eaten by a key-pounding-toddler or I'll start to wonder if there is something wrong with me posting here ;)
I'm actually 29w3d already! I'm *so* excited about hitting 30w1d because then the countdown is in SINGLE DIGIT WEEKS!!! Wait.. did I say excited? Because for about one minute I'm excited and about nine minutes terrified. I know you can NEVER really be ready for a baby ;) But... it all always works out too! (and, really, I'm not anticipating this baby coming any time early, and not even "on time"... since none of my babes have been birthed before 41 weeks anyway... but... it's nice to dream sometimes anyway ;) ).
Overall, I feel great. No real physical problems (occasional hip aches from laying on my side, but that hardly counts as anything). I feel great after heading to the gym (where I sometimes still dabble in just a bit of running... er... barely even jogging ;) ), long walks don't bother me in the least... I just feel more winded more easily, like working my body really does take more effort and I feel it, but not in any bad way really.
I'm a bit freaked out about going to a family of seven... but I know I was that way about a family of six and now it's just normal. Something about FIVE KIDS is kind of freaky... But, not much I can do about it now ;) It will all work out because that's just how life rolls.
At my last appointment with my midwife, I actually measured behind, after measuring ahead so much... but... it was the midwife's apprentice doing the measuring before and this time it was the actual midwife.
I'm nervous and excited about actually birthing in my own home. I need to get a lot of cleaning done in the next few weeks. I think I'm going to befriend the dumpster and just get rid of stuff for good. Less stuff = less to clean, right?!
Having a summer pregnancy is... an adventure I don't think I'd actually *try* for again ... I'm completely useless when it's over 90* because we have no A/C. It's been well over 100* this past week and I retreated to the basement because I couldn't handle the heat. Ugh. My other four were born in March or December, so the last leg of pregnancy was spent in the blissfull COLD!!
okay. computer time over... time to fix dinner ;) But at least this should actually get posted this time ;)
