Good luck Judy! Try to relax and enjoy your day! Fingers crossed that by tomorrow you'll be holding your baby in your arms!
There are a few mamas we haven't heard from for a few days. I hope you are all too busy snuggling your new babies to post!
AFM, another night of crappy sleep. I can handle all the pregnancy related reasons for not sleeping, but it's driving me nuts to just lie there with general insomnia when I'm so, so tired. I think I fell asleep around 2:30 and woke up at least 3 or 4 times before finally being up for the day at 8. I'm pretty sure lack of sleep is probably the main cause, but I'm grumpy and quite frankly bitchy today. Pretty much everything and everyone is bothering me. lol. I'm feeling incredibly antisocial, but just my luck, FIL is coming into town in about an hour. He's not staying with us, so I hope he wants to go and settle in before coming for a visit. I find him a bit stressful at the best of times, and I really don't need this right now. I guess he's getting registered in some sort of course while he's here, so he's not coming just for the baby, but man, I wish he could have stayed away until after the birth!
Other than that, I'm doing OK. I never expected this baby to be born by his or her due date, but despite that I'm still feeling a little let down at still being pregnant. I promised myself not to get impatient until at least 41 weeks, but it's easier said than done!
I hate to complain about my DH, because really, he's pretty great (especially compared to what some of you have had to put up with!) but I'm going to anyways. lol. He doesn't seem to get that we need to make some time for the baby. He's registered himself in a soccer tournament this weekend (so 6 games over Friday, Saturday, Sunday) and booked a work trip for October 1 which means travelling on Sept 30 and home on the 2nd or 3rd. Then he has a shut down to work from the 6th to the 10th (although that one wasn't his fault.) We didn't take any holidays this summer so that he could build up his vacation time and stay home for awhile after the baby is born, and now it looks like I'll be lucky if he's home for a week, and if we go past 41 weeks, it'll only be a couple days. This, despite the fact that he has 4+ weeks of vacation built up. I know I'm lucky that I have family around so I won't be without support, but I'm a bit sad he's going to miss that initial family bonding time, just like he did with DD. :(
Thanks for listening to me whine! When I'm less mopey, I'm pretty aware that the fact that I can worry about this sort of thing pretty much means everything else is going smoothly so I'm going to try to focus on that. It's also a lovely fall day today, so I'm going to get outside and see if some Vit. D helps my mood a bit. :)
