"I would never want to poke holes in my nipples"? Oh wow, talk about someone not knowing their anatomy! Yikes!
I'm assuming that most of the opposition towards me NIP will be from whatever friend I might happen to be with at the time. Not while baby is an infant, but later. Crazy friends...
I tried to post this earlier but the gremlins were working against me. Thank goodness I saved it for later.
How did I miss this thread? Hmm.
38 weeks today, supposedly. That pregnancy wheel thing is odd. If going by LMP of August 4, it puts conception on the 17th (according to my first midwife), which seems odd, since 4 plus 14 is 18. When I entered the 4th as LMP into babyzone, it sends me updates on Sundays and updates my info Monday morning. And everyone had my due date as May 10.
But if we go with the 18th as conception date the wheel (with new midwives) it bumps the due date a full 2 days, to the 12th, and my weekiversary is on Wednesday.
So I'm confused. It's no biggie, as I think I'll be late anyway (or I'm just telling myself that so as to not go insane), but I do like having a day to change my weeks on.
We decided on Monday that we ARE going to Oregon for MayDay...going down on Friday and staying in Troutdale, ditzing around all day Saturday then going back home (oh how I wish OR were my home) late afternoon. Perhaps take advantage of the tax-freeness of the place and visiting Babies R Us, to pick up the long-awaited carseat (if the BRU in Lints? has what we want) and assorted sundry items...
Of course, a friend of mine has been convinced for ages that I'll have baby on Beltaine, which would be interesting. I'm not sure I want to be driven back to WA while in labor, but I'm not sure I want to have baby at Edgefield (the B&B we'll be at), either!
Hey, if any Oregonians are around Troutdale this weekend, I'll be the short, reddishbrownishblondish-haired one who looks 38+ weeks pregnant!
Nevertheless, I think we'll be stopping at the store to get one of those under-baby waterproof pad things for me to sleep on, just in case anybody's water breaks in her sleep while at a hotel. Aren't I sweet?
I've been really super crabby recently, and have NO nesting urges beyond the normal thoughts I always have. Hubby is still moving furniture around and sanding the drawers and such for baby clothes, and I get to put the small things back into place, and I want to do that, but I'm not sure that's really nesting. I've been doing that kind of thing for years!
Should I be feeling some kind of impending labor things? The B/H contractions show up often, I have really weird feelings in my cervix, and my 8.5 months of constipation seem to be gone (TMI? nah...), but other than that I feel nothing telling me "it's time".
Maybe I really will be late! Hey, Robert was born at 44 weeks, so it's not unheard of 'round here.
