Wow! Our last real monthly updates! Should we start doing weekly or bi-weekly updates?How far along are you?
35 weeks 1 dayWhat will you remember most about this pregnancy?
Well, two things. One, my DD's realization that there is a BABY in there! Watching her adjust to the idea, feel him, etc. And the other is how much he moves! Up until about a week and half ago, he was tumbling head over foot, rolling from vertex to breech, to transverse. I can't belive how much he moved! He's slown down on the big tumbles, but I still feel him move alot!How are you emtionally and physically?
OK... It depends on the day. Today, I am feeling good physically but very crabby and short tempered. I've been short with DD, yelled at DH and generally feel irritable. Most days it's been the other way around, I've been cheerful and happy, looking forward to maternity leave, Christmas and baby but tired and not able to do what I want to get done. I'm generally anxious about finishing projects, getting ready for Christmas and wrapping work stuff up.Is baby head down?
YES!!! Seems to be staying that way If you have other children... who will take care of them while you are in labor?
We haven't made firm plans yet. I think we are going to have her go to my IL's, depending on timing. If it's day time- I am thinking we will drop her with them and go to the hospital. Once we get close to transition, I will have DH call them and head up (it's a 45 minute drive from their house) so that DD can be there shortly after birth. If it is evening, I will probably have my mom come stay here with DD and bring her up in the morning. We've gotta think more about this!Will you be giving birth at home? hospotal? or birthing center?
In a hospital with a CNM.Is your bag packed and ready to go?
Nope! That's on the list for this weekend or before Christmas anyway!Do you have any odds and ends you want to tie up before baby comes?
Yeah... We've got a list a mile long. My DH has had vertigo, of all crazy things, so he hasn't been able to do just about anything. And he is going out of town next week. We are hopeful that we will get most things done this weekend.Anything else you want to add?
Just that I can't belive that we are all getting so close. It's amazing to me that in a few short weeks (or several LONG ones!), we will be holding our babies! I was looking at the AUGUST 07 DDC and remembering lurking on the August 06 board when they were having babies this summer
These have been fun, fast and eventful months. We have been so fortunate to carry our babies this long!
