Hi everyone. I've been a little absent the past couple of days. With DP back at home, I'm busier with other things. Lots been going on. Some stress, but not much. Actually we came to an agreement for now. I think its just going to be one of those things that is in transition for a time.
So the coolest news is that we are moving this weekend into a much nicer place. When he got back from his trip and realized that the property mgmt ppl had blown off my complaint about the conditions in our current house, he got after them. I didn't have the energy to do it I guess. But they set it up today for us to move into another location super close to our current one that is so much nicer and much more space too for just a few dollars more per month. Pretty exciting. But that means we need to get stuff done, packing and moving in the next couple of days! So I will probably be absent for a bit more time. I don't want to miss these babies being born, but I really want my little one born into a place that is healthy, we are moving cuz of mold.... so it's really important. So wish me luck, I need this little one to stay put for a couple of weeks to move and get semi-settled.
I had some intense sensations this noon. It felt like every few minutes or so that the baby was trying to punch *his* way through my cervix. They were uncomfortable, not especially painful though but they were very low in location and unfamilar to me. But I think I have a pretty high pain tolerance compared to most ppl I know, so unless something REALLY hurts, I am kinda ambivalent about it. But these sensations did make me jump/cringe, I kept asking the LO to stop. When this continued for 10-15 minutes, DP began giving me *those looks*, the ones like, are you sure this is nothing? So I started thinking about things I have learned from you wonderful ladies and thought, maybe I need to drink water. I did have a caf. chai this morning after my water, so I know I dehydrated some. And wouldn't you know, the water did it. Within a few minutes they stopped. This didn't stop the baby from then trying to out the latest trick, to attempt to push a foot out the side of my belly, like pushing very hard and I can feel the foot, so I usually try to push it back in.
Anyway, I wish I could spend more time here. It seems like a lot is happening.
Teeny! I'm so excited for you, even if its still a few days or whatever for you, it's really cool that you are seeing things progress.
Best wishes to all the other ladies here too. I may get a few moments to pop on here tomorrow too, so we'll see.
Gotta go, DP cooked dinner tonight and he's waiting for me so we can eat.
