Well peeps, 10 days until the estimated due date of my little girl. I am getting anxious!
I have my weekly appointment tomorrow morning but as far as I know, they aren't planning on checking to see if I'm dilated or effaced. I sure would like to know! I've had a few braxton hicks contractions the last week, some cramping in my lower back, but nothing too painful. I can definitely tell a difference in her weight when I am in my recliner at night (where I've been forced to sleep for quite a while now) and she feels HEAVY.
The question is, will I get desperate enough to try to get labor started? You know, DTD. (Do the Deed) All I can say is I've never felt this clumsy and ridiculous in all my life. So only time will tell on that one. Heh.
On a side note, women drive me crazy. A gal who works with my husband was grilling him on the heartbeat rate, how low or high I was carrying, etc. In her "official" opinion, we're probably having a BOY, not a girl. Apparently in her pregnancy she had a higher heartbeat with her daughter, and carried high. Since my girl has a lower heartbeat, that means I'm having a boy. Uh, lady? STFU! I can't stand people like that. All those types of comments accomplish is to worry the expectant mom. So shut it!
Oh, and "nesting." Where are you nesting instinct? Why have you decided to not show up? Arg. I'd love to have some motivation to get things perfectly ready, but yeah, my feet are so swollen and my back hurts, so I sit in front of the computer or in the recliner all day long. Come on already nesting! Show up!
That is all for now. I hope the next two weeks go by fast.
