I'm still here and depending on my dates :LOL I am either 40 weeks and 4 days, 40 weeks and 1 day, or not 39 weeks and 4 days (if I did the math right on that one). :LOL Doesn't matter, she's still in there and seems to be making no move to coming out. I think she has taken up permanent residence.
I got some EPO the other day. I tried inserting it but OMG that stuff melts so quick!!!!!! By the time I was comfortable (I'd put it in right as we were going to bed) my skin would be all irritated from the oil. I have since resorted to swallowing it. MUCH better. :LOL
I am about ready to scream at everyone who calls! My FIL calls multiple times a day to ask if the baby is here yet. I am so sick of telling everyone (especially him) no and that when she is we WILL call. No one seems to believe us! I don't get it, I know they hear me. I am dreading it actually. My FIL and my mom are soo annoying around babies. It is a good thing you don't remember your first few years! They get right in the baby's face and giggle loudly and are geuinly rude. I don't care how old you are you wouldn't do that to anyone else! why does a small infant change that! I know they are excited but I can't stand it. I am having a really hard time coming to grips with the fact that they are going to come over so soon. I have told DH everyone is to wait at LEAST a day until they can come over and even then they have to call and I will decide on a case by case basis. I don't care if that is mean or will hurt their feelings, I DO NOT have to deal with pitch octaves higher than the noise ordinance and I don't think my newborn should either.
Been having funny feelings down below, like the baby is pushing on my bone and a nerve all at once. I've started having some BH but nothing to woo hoo! about. I usually get them when I am laying down and lately they have begun to hurt slightly. No more mucus plug though. I think it reformed itself.
DSS keeps asking when we are bringing the baby up to see him. I think he is more excited than anyone else right now. :LOL
Had a strange call from my brother the other night that was slightly disturbing but nice at the same time. He is VEHEMENTLY oppposed to our plan. So much so that he has made some not so nice comments in regards to bleeding. I know he's not serious but it can get to someone, yk? Anyways, he called the other day and said he won't show up but to call him when labor starts so he can be ready in case something happens. He'll be in town and if something happens he wants to be able to be here to help out whether it's to get us to the hospital or whatever. It was nice but such a change of pace for him that I about crapped my pants right there! I told him I would keep that in mind and he said that no I would not, I was going to do it whether or not I liked it. :LOL
I went to my SIL's shower the other day and I have to admit I am JEALOUS! For one, people showed up to hers! None of my friends could make it and even few of my in-laws could.
They all lived close by too so I was hurt over that but had forgotten about it. I showed up to hers and I about cried. People put thought into her gifts and had showed up! There are only a couple things I can think of from mine that actually had thought put into it. No one asked what I needed or wanted at all! My mom even got me something she knew I didn't want! I was really hurt and I know that's dumb to be hurt over material things but it was the care that into her gifts that was lacking from mine that hurt. She got a great bfing book. I got bottles and crappy All-a-Dollar ones at that. The list goes on with things like that. She got everything she needed which is great but as I sat there watching her open them I couldn't help but think my shower and everything was put off in everyone's mind until last minute when they all thought, "Crap! I have a baby shower tomorrow!". It's all stupid but I was so upset being there. Then to top it off once her cousins found out I was having/planning a homebirth they quit talking to me. The few people in the room who actually would and they quit! Only to start again as they were leaving to tell me which hospitals have the best stats/stories/figures etc. for INDUCING labor and I was so brave to be out this far along. One girl told me if I waited much longer they'd have to do a c-section cause the baby would get to big. She had to because she has HUGE babies.
She has only had one baby! And it definitely wasn't huge. I was so mad! They didn't want to talk to me or hear what I had to say until the end and then it was to tell me to INDUCE and which hospital to do it at!
Sorry for the novel!
P.S. If my mom pats my belly and says in a sugary voice four octaves too high, "I want my grand-daughter!" I am going to scream!!!!!!! KEEP YOUR HANDS OFF!!!!!!
I think I am getting irritated a little easily lately. :LOL and maybe slightly emotional as I read over this post.
