I really like dates but they aren't something I would ever think to have on a daily basis and I really dislike anything that I have to eat (or drink *she says, staring woefully down at her second RRL tea today*) every day for any reason.
I have to say that I was getting kind of worried with all the pre-labour things that were going on last week, but I'm actually feeling really comfortable with her coming whenever she's ready now. My trainee at work is comfortable now and I will be 37 weeks on Thursday. Also, I finally got my prenatal records at my last appointment which told me that she's been measuring at least 2 weeks ahead for this entire pregnancy, so I'm feeling pretty good about it if she decides to come early. I also learned from my records that when I was last checked at my 32 week appointment (due to a combination of symptoms), my cervix was already softening... I'm not entirely sure why my doctor neglected to tell me any of these things as she was recording them, but at least I know now.
I'm starting to get excited!
