Cindy - congrats! What a sweetie. :)
I'm 39+3 today. I had a bit of a pout fest/breakdown last night, which I really don't do - it shows how my hormones are at this stage, I suppose. :P I've gotten so dismissive of the cramping and the other things that go on with my body that I get myself all convinced I'm showing no signs of progression, which of course I am! It's silly to get discouraged about it! But rationality isn't always the name of the game lately with me, more like mood swing central.
My mother in law was nagging my husband about something the other day over text, and I made the mistake of telling him to tell her I was starting to dilate so he could change the subject. It worked then, but now she's become endlessly annoying - he called her about something completely unrelated yesterday, and within minutes she had the subject changed to my goddamned cervix. She's unbelievably impatient. Even worse, she's somehow convinced herself that SHE is the one driving us to the hospital - whaaat? Why would we agree to that? We need our car there in the parking lot, it's where we're storing everything! But considering her logic throughout this pregnancy, I shouldn't be surprised. I wish to god she'd find a job so that she has something else to focus on. Argh. Either way, she isn't getting a phone call until we're already at the hospital and well into the birth. At least I know she's super duper squeamish and won't try to barge her way into the delivery room.
Serafina - I'm considering the Paragard as well, but I seriously can't decide. I just don't want to be on hormonal birth control anymore - one of the reasons it took us so long to conceive was due to being on the Nuvaring for a year straight and having my cycle COMPLETELY effed over afterward. It took years to get back to anything resembling regular. I honestly just want to use condoms until we decide to try for #2, and then my husband has happily agreed to the vasectomy after that. And I'm going to be breastfeeding as well, so I figure that's extra insurance. :)
Oh my god, my husband just got a text from a coworker asking if the baby is here. I think I'm losing my mind. I'm going to shut all the phones off and hide under the blankets until I see a head actually poking out. And I think I'm only half joking.
