Yeah Chapsie I don't know how you're still sane enough to put together coherent sentences. I agree with the others - stick to what you absolutely NEED to do and let everything else slide. And hire help if you can! (Or call in favours...)
Buko - your baby is super-cute.
Tear - So sorry about your grandpa. It's hard to say goodbye and welcome new life at the same time.
nearlyelated - yikes! That's not the kind of surprise you really want your baby springing on you, is it? But it sounds like if you have a breech specialist available it might not mean an automatic c-section if baby doesn't budge?
I'm sure I am missing people here - sorry... I am tired and probably only have another 10 minutes to play computer today...
AFM I had a midwife appt today and she wants me to go for an NST and an ultrasound next week, just because I'm older and statistically the risk of stillbirth goes up with older moms. Actually she didn't say she *wanted* me to do it, she just mentioned that it's generally recommended. From what I hear from friends, NSTs are not particularly onerous (in fact, it's a chance for a nice little lie-down) and *I* would actually like an ultrasound to make sure baby's not growing too big - just for my own peace of mind. Today I was actually measuring slightly smaller (um, yeah, cause the baby shrunk a bit... LOL) than last week and I certainly don't feel like the baby's grown a lot in the past week and a half. But I had the MW do a check of my cervix and it's only 1 cm dilated and soft but not effaced, so no imminent action - I'm guessing my initial "about a week late" will unfortunately prove true. I'm ok with that right now actually.
Family home - gotta go!
