Since the symptoms thread is reallllly long and is pretty chatty, I thought maybe we could start a new weekly chat thread as we get closer. I'm sure we'll have lots to say in the coming weeks.
I'm feeling pretty good today and in general; a bit crampy, but I think that has more to do with my bowels then baby doing anything. I had my 37 week appointment with my hospital-based CNM group today, and while I was happy to find out that I'm GBS negative, I was bummed that they just instituted a temporary "no visitors under 18" policy for flu season. There's a small chance it might be lifted before I go into labor, but not likely. This isn't uncommon or anything, though still disappointing as I really wanted my two-year old to be able to meet his sister ASAP. Now we have to wait at least 24 hours after the birth for discharge, which is probably THE biggest issue I have with hospital birth. Anyway have any experience leaving AMA? I probably won't do that, but it's tempting if everything goes well.
How are ya'll doing?
