Where do you like to go?? I'm dying to float in water...Might have to make tomorrow the day!
I had a wonderful shower on the weekend, a big bbq thrown by a friend at her house. My mom was in town for 6 days and 3 close girlfriends flew in for the shower and a visit, all of them coming from the West Coast. I think I held up pretty well, though I'm not sure that such a production is a good idea in the 36th week! Anyhow, I got tons and tons of onesies and only ONE of the dozen or so cloth diapers I'd registered for, so I guess my next mission is dipes! I have a list of a few other things that we still need and a few more that I still want. I've got hubby to myself tomorrow and I'll make him do a few things...we are picking up a car seat! So exciting.
I think I've figured out at least part of my school dilema (3 weeks til due date/5.5 weeks of school left): My instructor is willing to let me double up on my clinical days for two weeks to get done early...it lets her off the hook earlier, so I think she likes it too. Now I just have to figure out how to finish the final exam!! Sure wish I could just go on "maternity leave" from school, but this is the very end of my program and not finishing means not graduating and that's just crazy.
Still thinking I'll go late. Baby's still high and I had a vag exam and mw says there's no real dilation, though cervix is soft. Fine by me, I've been aiming for that all along...though I know I'll get sick of being pg by the end. Still feeling fairly good, so I'm thankful for that every day.
Can't wait to start seeing the birth stories pop up here! Good luck all, keep up the good work!
