Oh, mamas! Seems like things are definitely starting to happen for everyone this week.
My little wiggle worm has been dropping these past few days and my back is not happy if I'm standing around on my feet for too long - thank goodness I only have two days of work left, and I'm going in late for both shifts. Fortunately, DH gives a lovely massage ('good practice for labor,' I tell him, as he digs his knuckles into my pelvis and back) and a lot of yoga poses are helping work out the kinks.
As far as sex, we've actually DTD TWICE in the past week after a long time not doing it. Sorry if this is tmi, but I'm not usually "successful" on top, so we avoided that earlier in the pregnancy. Now that we're so far along and there are no other options, though, we're giving it another try, and as long as we're patient, it seems to be going well!
38w2d today. I'm working at checking things off the to-do list - sending out thank-you cards for baby gifts, stocking up on some groceries, grabbing the last few things off of my midwives' list of homebirth necessities. The baby and I are having conversations about how it's welcome to come any time, though things might work better for both grandmothers if it waits until Sunday at least. DH and I are having more conversations about parenting in general, and I cannot express how excited I am to raise a baby with that man.
I go back and forth between feeling totally empowered and prepared for this labor, and wondering if I'm delusional and it's going to knock the wind out of me completely. Mostly, I'm staying on the very very positive side. My body has been phenomenal during this whole pregnancy, and I don't believe it'll let me down now.
Sending good vibes to all of you - those with babes, those in labor, and those patiently (or not so patiently!) waiting.
