Lets see I am 34 wks 1 d if you go by the ultrasound. I measured just shy of 35 cm at my appointment on the 19th, and I have been so consistantly measuring a week ahead it is hard for me to think I might actually go to my EDD. I hope not.
I am still a little worried about what to do with the boys when I go into labor. If it is during the day I think they will be ok at the birthcenter and my MW's assistant even said as long as I am not crowning she can help keep them entertained. And they just got a DVD player and said that we can bring movies for them to watch as well. If it is in the middle of the night I am worried about it. They may not go back to sleep once we get there, and I really feel like I need DH by my side as much as possible. I am really hoping labor and delivery will happen while my inlaws are here, but just in case got the number for the volunteer/student doula coordinater at Birthingway Midwifery College, so I can get set up to have a student doula for free. They can come in the middle of the night to the center and either be with me if DH is needed for the boys or be with the boys.
I have been nesting as much as my
body will let me.
I am so irritated with it. I guess being over 30 and this being my 3 pregnancy in 4 1/2 years will cause things to stop working like they did before, but still I would love to be able to marathon clean and get it all done NOW!
: I have so much I want to do. Cleaning in general of course, but I want to rearrange our bedroom, get the blanket sewn for the baby, get some of the newborn onsies I have dyed, and finish the dress I am knitting. Along with that I want to get all of the baby announcements made before I go into labor and ready to fill in. If I have them all done, envelopes addressed, they will actually go into the mail this time!
We still need a dresser for the baby as right now I have much of my non-preggo clothes in box on the closet floor and her stuff in the drawers they used to occupy. I really want to find a sweet little four drawer chest that I can stain or paint. I did find a twin matteress, now just need the box springs and the boys will each have their own bed instead of sharing a very crappy uncomfortable queen. I think they will sleep better separated physically. They love sharing a room, but they are both active sleepers and well they just wake each other up, but moving so much.
I am enjoying the movements and playing with little girl as she poke her feet out of my sides. She is so big already! Her feet are in my ribs and her head is definitely down on my cervix. She is also anterior with her back on my left side. Although she tends to spin around on her head like a top during the day.
Well DH is gone until Friday night (day four of being on my own and counting!)and I feel like I am handling it pretty well. I miss him terribly of course, both for his own precious self, and for all he does for us when he is here.
Ok enough of the novel of my life!
Lizabethian~~ That sounds exactly like how both my labors started for real. The low back almost like your constipated ache. It started about 3 days before labor really kicked in for me.
Eaglesvoice~~ That is totally cool about your getting that ticket!!
That is exactly what we had to fly my mom down for our first. Southwest rocks.
