Someone else has to have given birth by now, right? Anyone gone off the grid lately?
I haven't timed my contractions yet, but they are so frequent, it's like I can't move at all without causing a long series of them. All I want to do is sit or lay down, but ds has other ideas. He knows something is up and has been super clingy and fusses at pretty much every interaction. He wants one on one interaction 100% of the time. Also he's a getting about 9 hours of broken sleep at night since he's been sleeping with daddy and is super cranky. I can get him back to sleep when he wakes at 5, but dh can't. If I sleep with him, though I get a total of about 4 hrs myself when you count how long it takes me to get back to sleep after ds waking and me having to pee.
My back is starting to kill me, and my groin is just sore like I've pulled it. I know things are getting super stretchy. Starting to have frequent let down feelings in my breasts and am leaking colostrum. I officially have 2 and a half weeks left, but am wondering if I'll go that far. Kind of don't want to go early because my mom can't come until Thanksgiving, and I know I'm going to really want her around as soon as possible after the birth. Dh will be home for a couple of weeks, but may have to be working from home. That doesn't really inspire confidence in the amount of support I'll have. I know his parents will be around, but it's not the same. I just would love to know that I will have a whole week to just lay in bed and nurse and bond. I'm so worried about how ds will feel. Everyone says it will be good for him, but I don't see how. I think most people feel he is overly attached to me
Anyway, that all sounds more negative than I actually feel. I'm super excited to meet this baby. Just normal discomfort, anxiety, and hormones, I guess. Hope everyone is feeling as good as can be expected at this point!
