Cchip- when I was pregnant with DS had a couple of dreams about him. Initially I dreamed he was a boy and then that he was a boy with blonde hair and blue eyes. It seemed ridiculous because DH is Afro-Cuban- brown eyes and black hair and I have dark brown hair and brown eyes. Welllll DS had gorgeous blue eyes and is blonde, so I don't know, sometimes I think we don't give our dreams enough credit, although I don't think they translate LITERALLY. Hehe
Lightforest- my DH can be quite similar, when I am feeling evolved I am able to take it as a compliment at how capable he finds me. But this morning I almost cried when he asked me why he would bathe DS 2 nights in a row, this just one day after a doctor told me I have slipped a disc or two and he says WHY when I ask for help? I was upset but took a deep breath and asked for help again. Sheesh.
Slim- I am looking into every feeling I have, searching for signs! Hoping feeling tired is one cuz then we'll both be in labor at any time!
Writer- did it feel good that the MW understood the urgency in helping birth along and went ahead with the sweep? Sounds like a comforting appointment
Sunshine- I was fooled yesterday by lots of contraction and back labor! Seems to be going around
Cabbitdancer- I do plenty of my share of worrying!! But, I had sort of an epiphany when it occurred to me that we have been through hardships and come through brilliantly- financial and otherwise. Things always have a way of working out, so I am trying to keep that in mind. I guess DH didn't have the same epiphany
That sounds like some fantastic nesting energy!!
Granola- we crunched the numbers and though if I work full time and send the baby to daycare ($1,000/mo!) we will still make more, even considering the extra costs of gas, convenience food, clothes, etc. BUT the emotional cost is huge and I think we are leaning toward me working part time for a while like I arranged initially with my employer, but when they want me to stop working PT from home and return FT to the office I will quit.
I like working and am resourceful, I will figure out a way to supplement our income without daycare until baby is 18 months old, at least.
How will you know when the judge signs off? Do they call you or send you something? You must be so relieved it is over! I hope you get the doctor you want. How horrifying to know something so awful about the other doctor who could possibly deliver your baby. I would be pretty anxious. Are you still feeling "birthy" at all?
