So, I wish I could post everyday. I really do. That's one of those "best laid plans" moments floating through my mind lately. But, what's been on our minds more than anything? That's right. Of course. The baby - who still hasn't made his/her appearance yet.
okay, though. He/she isn't due until the 3rd...or 7th...although our
doctors seemed to think that it'd be a tad early. Let's just say it's
measuring bigger than expected. To look at me, though, we're guessing
it'll be an average size. I'm all belly, and after our sono last week
folks are asking "Where the heck are you hiding an 8lb., 13oz. baby?!"
Luckily, sonograms tend to "over measure." The latest news here is that
IF he/she decides to stay comfy, they'll probably be to big to deliver
via inducement. What's this mean? Possibly C-section. Which I hate. But,
again, "best laid plans"....
what just occurred to me? The fact that I'm Strep B positive. It's not a
huge deal, just need an IV of medication when I get to the hospital.
HOWEVER, it JUST hit me that some of my comforting yoga moves may be
challenging, if not impossible, with an IV running from the moment I get
admitted. Crap. Luckily, there are other positives from yoga that I can
try to implement...but, still. Can I just say "AW, MAN!!!!!" please?
Or, perhaps, something a tad stronger? *grumbles*
general, I've learned how to be flexible. How can one not when a tiny
being has taken over one's body and, in many ways, life? (Although,
admittedly, this has been a VERY easy pregnancy!) I'm hoping that, when
the time comes, this flexibility works for us - and, of course, that
things AREN'T complicated and run smoothly.
For now, while there are a million little projects I'd LIKE to finish or
work on, they're not important. We're essentially ready for the baby to
come home anytime. I seem to be getting Braxton Hicks contractions for
now, so we're all guessing it'll happen this week - but, then again,
"best laid plans." Can't wait to share nursery pics, our "belly
progression" pics, and even the garden that we found time to plant!
