------Warning, long whine/vent ahead!
Well, today's my birthday. I've been thinking it might be a really nice present to have the baby today, but I don't think it's going to happen. I'm 40 weeks 4 days, and still no signs. I shouldn't be surprsied.. ds was 2 weeks late. BUT, I was sure my date last time was wrong, and ds was actually born around his true due date. This time, I was charting, and know exactly when I ovulated. So, I thought this one would be closer to the due date. I swear, if one more person asks me if I'm still pregnant, I'm going to scream! This morning, I even got "the question" from my 8-year-old neighboor!
Oh well, I'm sure it will turn out for the best. I'm probably not in the best physical shape for having a baby immediately, anyway.
I have a bit of a sore throat and an ear ache... which is how the bad cold I just recovered from started. Ds decided last night would be the first time he'd try to sleep in the bed in his room. He woke up at 3 am, and insisted on staying in his room for milk to go back to sleep. This was fine with me... except everytime I tried to get up after he drifted back to sleep, he would wake up! Usually, ds sleeps through the night, or if he wakes once, falls back to sleep and stays that way fairly quickly.
I've been up with ds since 3:00 am this morning. Ds got up for good at 5:00 (we usually sleep until 8!), and I'm exhausted. Now I'm wondering if I should have pushed the night weaning. How am I going to do this with a newborn??
I've also been dealing with a sudden case of thrush, and despite everything I've been doing, it doesn't seem to be going away. Luckily, I haven't had soreness, but it is so d*** itchy! And, I really don't want to start my nursing relationship with a newborn off with thrush! Ugh.
Okay, sorry for the whining. I have so much to be thankful for, and I know this baby will be here at the perfect time for him/her. Besides, ds is falling asleep on my shoulder as I type, so I think I'll head upstairs. I'm sure we'll both feel a lot better after a nice nap!
