Thanks for your kind words, mamas. The funeral was today and it sounds like my mother is doing pretty well. I'm going to keep calling her every day. I have a feeling this will shift our relationship. I'm half tempted to invite her to the birth, but we've never been close and I suppose we might do better taking smaller steps.
I had an appt with an OB today to see if baby Zachary was still breech, but he has turned head down!!! I'm SO glad and relieved! The Webster technique, acupuncture, and moxibustion did the trick! Now I can totally focus on getting the house ready. Our home visit is Friday morning, so I have tomorrow to clean and organize. I haven't been doing a lot the past several days, but laundry has been non-stop. DH decided that tomorrow we are dropping my car off to have the breaks done (I need new breaks badly). I'm glad I'll have new breaks, but I don't want to spend any time tomorrow out of the house! I just want to get stuff done. DD is going to a friend's house after school for a playdate, so that will give me some extra time to do stuff, too. She is SO excited about her baby brother! I have had 2 dreams now that he's been born, and in both of them I just felt so overjoyed and peaceful. I'm super excited to meet him!
To the mama's having trouble with their mamas: Good luck! It's hard to balance those relationships sometimes.
That reminds me! My MIL texted DH yesterday and asked if she could come visit us this weekend!?!?!?! When he asked me what I thought, I looked at him as if he had 2 heads! I've only met my MIL twice, so it's not like we're close. I just informed him we have a LOT of stuff to do. I'm sure she just wants to help, but I feel it was a little awkward for her to just invite herself when we have a baby due in 3 weeks. Also, we would be expected to either put her up here (on the couch) or pay for her hotel! Anyway, he told her not this weekend, so I'm glad.
I've been super tired and have a cold, which doesn't help. I hope I'll find some energy tomorrow to seriously get the house ready!
