Wow! We should change the name of this thread to the Massive and Mighty Poster's thread!
I'm right in there with all of you who are crampy/nesty/numb hands/running around like a chicken woth no head/craving strange things! Wow, we have a lot going on, don't we?!
Actually I thought I was going to go into labor last week. I kept having an hour or more of pretty steady ctrx each evening at the same time. I talked with an OB/friend on Wednesday night, and he said to make sure the bags are packed, and the carseat is in the car. So that's what we did. Strangely enough, after I accomplished a few things around the house, I could calm down, and I haven't had any patterns of ctrx for days. Now I've got those funny twinges that almost tickle, and sometimes sharp sensations that I know mean my cervix is dialating. I think I may go early after all. I'm 37 weeks tomorrow, and I have an appt on Tuesday, so we'll see.
I've gotten a lot of cleaning done, not enough, but enough to be proud of. If I get our bedroom vacuumed and the co-sleeper set up tonight, I'll feel like it's safe to DTD in case we start labor!
DH and I dropped DS off at the GP's house on Saturday, so we could take a day trip to King of Prussia Mall. We used to love to go there, and walk and people watch when it was just the two of us. I don;t think we've actually been away together w/o DS for any length of time since DS was born, and I just wanted 1 DAY with DH before the BB comes.
WE HAD A BLAST!!!
: I only started to have BHX once, and so we went to get dinner. We went to the Cheesecake Factory, where I had eaten but DH hadn't yet. A nice lady got up and asked me to please take her seat in the waiting area! It was so nice to actually be able to sit and eat our food, adn not have to be battleing DS the whole time, or leave early! And, our server kept my water glass FILLED the whole time!
I thanked her, and she told me she knew what it was like to be really thirsty, and have to wait and wait for water.
It was just such a nice time. . .
It seems like DH has finally figured out what it means to be a partner/father. Not that he didn;t help befotre, but lately it seems like his attitude has somehow changed. He's been ASKING what he can do, not just, 'what can I do?' but 'can I do this
right now for you?'
Please Lord, let this last!
