*yawns* Well, after today I can officially 'have' the baby! Mum's helping me pick up the birth pool in a couple of hours. There are still a million things I could or should be getting done before the baby comes, but you know what? I just don't care any more! Nesting is so last week.
The baby seems to be head downwards again. Weird. Then again it spent HOURS last night kicking me repeatedly and painfully--it may very well have been turning somersaults, or something. I was tempted to wake DH up just to make him feel how strong the kicks were! Hey, do babies kick during labour? I always wondered.
|I went to church today and got a whole bunch of "you're still here?" comments.
Yeah, that's another reason I didn't go yesterday.
I'm not very good at dealing graciously with annoying, repetitive comments--I tried to avoid everybody in the weeks leading up to my wedding, and this is worse! One couple did turn up at our house after church while I was in my nightie, but I leaped nimbly into the bedroom and DH told them I was sleeping. And they gave us some homemade muffins and homegrown tomatoes, so that ended well.
Off to drink some RRL tea!
