I have another 10 days until my EDD, but I'm not in any particular rush. I had a HUGE burst of energy last week- cleaned nonstop from 7pm - 2am. I thought I'd be horribly sore the next day, but I just slept till noon and when I got up, I was fine- not a single ache! Weird- when I cleaned for our new year's eve party back in december, I was in a world of hurt for days after.
My sleep has also improved. I wake up around 5am and 8am to use the bathroom, but that's about it. I get some pretty solid sleep (knock on wood!). I haven't slept this well this whole pregnancy. I think my sleep improved after my cleaning session because I had been waiting to get it all done. I even hyper-organized my birth kit. I took one of the MDC mom's advice and organized everything into paper bags which I labelled so I don't have to play traffic cop during the event.
DH and I interviewed a pediatrician today. Actually she's a family practice doc and we like her so much we're going to see her too
I've been having BH for months now, but this past week they seem to get more intense around midnight/1am, but nothing worth noting. I think the occasional pms-y feeling is just intestinal. I've been eating a lot of big salads lately.
So on one hand, I think I'm mentally in for the long haul, but on the other, I'm excited for things to start! I'm getting annoyed at "friends" who call just to ask if baby is here (as if I wouldn't tell them) and then saying things like "I think baby is coming early" That makes me angry! My reply: "Baby can come neither early nor late, only on time. Baby doesn't read a calendar."
DH is getting annoyed by people at work pestering him. He complained about it today but I had no sympathy- I asked him to imagine strangers on the street asking him questions. The first one is when are you due. I always say "When baby is ready." How come the next question is always "Is this your first?" WTF? What if I said this was #9? What would the response be? is it more or less special for this to be #1 or #10? Sheesh. My response: "I wonder why people always ask invasive questions like that."
Anyway, sorry to go on and on, I'm just
Hugs and happy birth vibes to everyone!
