Time for another round of….At This Time Last Year
Brought to you by your hostess. Me!!
OMG I am gonna be a moma anytime now. CRAZY! Really my due date is in 10 days weeeehhaa! I am really getting nervous about labor, but I know it can’t be helped and it will get me back my body and a baby in my arms, and mmmmmmmmmm those two things are so tempting right now. MY BP seems to be holding steady , it was a bit down on Friday at my appointment and my blood work looked fine as far as the nurse was concerned (See my OB stood me up, this is not the first time this has happened as she delivers baby’s for a living, so ya I see her nurse as back up) anyhow, I see the midwife again on Tuesday and the OB again on Wednesday, but if blood pressure co-operates and stays as is or slightly lower and I still have no protein in my urine, as I NEVER HAVE. Then I should be all clear for a successful homebirth, me hopes. I know nothing is for sure and I am ok with that, but having the option is nice.
Today its been snowing here all day, its really nice. Dave and I took advantage of a snowy weekend to clean like madfolk, seriously we cleaned everything today, its so nice, it feels so good to organize things and have a nice clean house. Sadly deep down I know that by 2 weeks from now the place will be filthy again just in time for baby, that’s life when you have 2 cats, hair all over.
We are putting up a cute boarder in the baby’s room this weekend, and I bought some wood letters spelling out his name and painted them in blue and yellow and we are going to hang them on the wall in his room. The nesting moma in me wants a perfect little nursery even though he wont be sleeping in there for 5-6 months, as we have a bedside bassinet til then. However, that is also the roomed zoned for the birthing pool and so its also full of home birth supplies right now, which bugs the nesting instinct in me all to hell, as I want the room perfectly organized, but the logical me knows that that room is not going to serve any purpose til after the baby is born, so its fine to keep some stuff in there outta the way. Geeshh hormones are a weird and wacky thing they are.
Dave is cooking tonight, making some shepherd’s pies and lasagnas that we can freeze and have to eat fast when the baby is here, he is such a great guy. My mom will also be coming for a week when the baby arrives so that will be a huge help, Dave’s mom is coming for 2 weeks in January, also will be a huge help.
