Also she decided to be better safe than sorry and test for GD since I said I have been having a tiny bit of swelling in my feet and then my urine test today was a bit off. She said she would be really surprised if it were positive but she would rather test just in case. So I come back next week 2hrs after eating pancakes with syrup and a glass of juice.
This would be enough to think/worry about but we just received an offer this weekend on our house!! I am super excited and very nervous all at the same time. It does have contingencies like inspection, appraisal and that they have to close on their house before they can buy mine. We should know for sure if the deal is solid by the last week in July. Our closeting date is Aug 12!!! Less than 2.5 weeks before my due date!!!! OMGoodness!!
So i have to start thinking of where we are going to go next.... Im hoping that since we own a small 2 bedroom guest house on this same property that the buyers would be willing to rent it to us for the next year. They sound interested but we don't know for sure yet. The one down side is that we would have to pack in 3 kids and 3 adults since my mom lives with us!!!! But the up side is the really cheap rent in comparison to anything in the area and being able to stay basically on our property for another year without having to pay to fix anything But overall I just can't imagine that I'm going to have to move at 36 weeks pregnant in any case!!!
The craziness continues... I'm getting married here at the house in the yard on July 7th so I'm in full swing planning mode. My final dress fitting is the same day as the house inspection
Then we were hoping to get away for just 3/4 days just my husband and I right after that. Then when we returned we were going to go on a week vacation to NH with the kids and stay in camping cabins. I was just about to book them today when my MW said since I look VERY ready to have this baby I should stick close to home and take it easy. My last labor was only about 2hrs, she only made it cause I resisted the urge to push lol. Im willing to do anything to avoid a premature little babe!!
Oh and the icing on the cake is that I have a slightly annoying tenant living currently in my rental guest house who I think may give me a bit of a hassle when I tell him he has less than 30 day to vacate. Even though I've given him notice that we are selling and he should be read to move out asap when we get an offer. I don't know what ill do if he gives me trouble
Also we can't have a birth at my house with this particular midwife since she is not licensed in my state... Long story! But she is amazing and has been catching babies for over 30 years. She had delivered all the other younger midwives children lol! She is really the go to midwife around. She teaches and knows everyone! So I trust her and only want her at my birth. But that means either we deliver at her house or somewhere else. We had hoped to deliver at my fiancé's rental house about 1.5 hrs from here but it's under major construction and as of right now those dreams are going to be dashed. But we had another idea.. His parents are about 1.25 hrs from here and my midwife has privileges there so we are going to see if his parents would be up for us birthing there. I think they will be respectful of the process and allow me my privacy. So we are going to ask them at the wedding
Oh and I almost forgot... I have 2 baby showers planned for 2 weekends in July. Lol we are going to be BUSY!!!!
Even after all that is going on I'm really trying to stay positive since overall life is really going well. My fiancée just got confirmation that his job is secure We were a bit worried about it this past month. The house selling is a blessing even if the timing is not so great. My ex-husband signed all the court paperwork we have been working on for the last 10 weeks (sooooo stressful!!!) and the really important things I wanted he agreed to YIPPIE. Once I get married I can change the kids names to match my new married name.
We will still go on some sort of vacation even if its just fun day trips around our area Overall I'm determined to make the most of this time with our little family if 4.
Thanks for the vent ladies!!! It feels good to put it down on paper!!!
