@Cwoodward:  I’m definitely getting anxious at the thought of L and D, and then the thought of the postpartum recovery is just terrifying!  Add on top of that, the life changing event of having an actual person to keep alive, and it’s a whole lot.  I’m just trying to take things one day at a time.  I’m telling myself, there’s no reason to panic, because it’s all inevitable, right?

@MissChanandlerBong:  hubby was adopted from a town a half hour to an hour away from his parents. They knew they were selected and getting him. Met with the mom and dad a few times and were called when he was born and showed up about 2 hours later. So maybe they just don’t know what’s expected or normal? I don’t know. Kind of makes me happy that they won’t be in my business but sad that we won’t get a super early newborn shot with them.

@MrsSawyer:  Glad you got your breast pump! Sounds like you have everything ready for the baby.

@MyFavouriteChords:  I really have no feelings about when I’ll go into labor. I don’t even like to think about it, because I don’t want to be disappointed if it doesn’t happen that day. It’s completely out of my control.

@MrsDW:  I would feel down if my in-laws didn’t seem excited about seeing the baby. Maybe they are trying not to step on anyone’s toes. Everyone has different ways of showing they care.

@MissChanandlerBong:  Glad you got some more clothes! I know I have a ton of clothes that people have been giving me. Unfortunately all of it is 0-6 month, so I’ll need to go shopping for the larger sizes later.

@Cwoodward:  I try not to think about L&D too much, because the thought of it does freak me out. I have a supportive husband and a doula who will be helping me through it, so hopefully it won’t be too bad.

I had my weekly appointment today. I’m 37 weeks and 3 days, and my fundal height is measuring at 38, so I’m no longer measuring far ahead! I’m really happy that the measurement went down, since I didn’t want to go for an ultrasound. I know they can be really off as far as predicting a baby’s weight.

I also found out I’m negative for group B strep, so that’s good news! I can continue with my no IV at the hospital plan.

@MrsDW:  Yeah at about 7 AM today I actually emailed the doctor who sent me to the hospital yesterday. I wanted her to know that I’d been released and was still running high, and get her to tell me if there was anything I should do. She called me less than 2 hours later and put me on modified bed rest. As it turns out, while I didn’t have pre-eclampsia, I’m right on the border. So there is a call for something to be done. And no one ever would have done it if I hadn’t asked. Sometimes I really hate doctors.

@Bichon Frise:  they seem excited when its just us. His parents couldn’t stop buying things for him for their house and ours. I don’t get why they would want to show up hour(s) late. But whatever I guess. Yay for a good dr appointment!!

@Mrs. Lox:  SimplyChic and I are talking about bad dr’s who don’t listen to the new moms instinct. 🙁 I’m glad you let your dr know and they did something though!

I have been having the best day today! First (as I mentioned before) a co-worker dropped off a bunch of hand-me-down clothes for me, then a big group of co-workers took me out for lunch (I still have a week of work left, but next week will be really busy so they wanted to do it a bit early). As if that weren’t enough, they also all signed a really sweet card and chipped in for a BRU giftcard. I was so touched, I really didn’t expect anything as I work with almost entirely guys! One of the ladies gave me some Burt’s Bees baby bath products too, as they were her favorites when her boys were little. It was so nice of all of them!

So now I need to figure out how to thank them all! (it was people from various departments/roles, and not everyone who signed the card made it out to lunch) I’m thinking I’ll bring in some baked treats next week and leave some at my desk and some at my manager’s desk, then send out a thank you email to everyone directing them to the treats!
