Yikes, I missed so much!!
CONGRATS to Michelle and Liz!! YEAH!! I cant wait to read the birth story Liz! Both of you, enjoy your babymoon!
This has been a long week. DH has been working 14-16 hours a day, and I am exhausted. I just want someone to come and take my children away for a couple hours so I can nap...
Oh yeah, then there's the getting ready for baby stuff I feel so guilty about not having done yet. The homebirth supplies Im supposed to have washed and ready, labor pool I havent ordered yet, cleaning I havent done. I want to do all of it right now, but I just dont have the energy. Im 38 weeks officially, so I probably should get on it, huh?
I met the other day with a backup doc from Kaiser. He was FANTASTIC!! I am totally stoked to have found him. He will catch a breech, he doesnt care that Im homebirthing, he was unconcerned that I refused a vag check, and was good to the kiddos in the office. He asked if there was anything else he could do for me. I was like, well, I was kinda thinking about asking for an US to check the position of the placenta. He said "well we can do it right now, it wont be all official with measurements and such, but it will tell us what you want to know" I was like cool! So we did a few minutes of US, to find the placenta, check the spinal column, stomach and bladder bubbles, heart, etc... It was weird that I asked for an US that wasnt necessary, but it was nice to see everything the way it was supposed to be. And we still dont know the sex!
Hmm... everyone/everything annoys me right now, at least for the last couple of days. My 4.5 yr old DD is just like this:
And my DS is
: I feel like bad mama for asking for quiet time, but sometimes I just want to lock myself in a closet. Not that that would keep them out, though
Zachary pounds on the bathroom door when I close it...
