Yes it is! I am so glad, though! This lil girl is so active and keeps tumbling around, it feels so weird and I can't wait to have her out of me! I'm hoping she's sleeping a lot at night, because I pretty much feel her moving all day. Today she has been a constant earthquake in my belly with aftershocks to my cervix and bladder.
Incidentally, I was talking to some other moms, and one of them mentioned that if I have a scheduled C-sec, it would probably be 2 wks before my due date. I'll see my OB next week, and I'll see what she says. So far, it seems she hasn't ruled out a vaginal birth, but seriously I do NOT want to screw my back up after just having had such a successful surgery, and I'm not sure I'd be able to bear down properly and I don't want an emergency c-sec. Btw, I am so jealous of you ladies that get to have home births and/or water births. But at least I have an OB who is pretty crunchy, and so is the labor/delivery dept of the hospital.
Hooray for showers! Mine is Saturday, and I'm soo excited! Also, this week DH and I picked up a bunch of furniture from freecyclers, so now we have smaller couches and more floor space in the house for things like the baby swing my MIL sent us. We are rearranging everything and getting the house organized (finally!). It has pretty much been a royal mess since I was bedridden back in Oct. We never had put up our framed photos or mirrors, and finally we're getting around to that, too. Makes me so happy. It's finally going to look so much more like a home before baby Karina comes! My friend and I are almost done making all our cloth pocket diapers and inserts.
Okay, I'm bushed, so it's off to bed for me. Hope everyone's aches and grumpiness subsides soon, babies turn to their proper positions, and partners get it into their heads to pamper us all!
