well i’m 39 weeks today. nothing happened yesterday. my mom spent the night *just in case* anyway.
last night i had several pretty strong and painful contractions, but they weren’t close together or anything to even try to time them.
*what follows may be tmi for those who don’t want to hear about bodily functions.*
the diarrhea has stopped…i’m back to being mostly constipated. now though i am having HORRIBLE gas (toots). i didn’t throw up yesterday morning or this morning. does this mean things are reversing now?
the dr said that if i hadn’t had jeremiah by my next appt, he would strip my membranes. i’ve heard this is very painful. i had really hoped to have him this weekend…i know there’s still time, but i’m afraid i’m discouraged about it. i know it’s stupid, but i’m mad at my body!! i REALLY REALLY want my doula to be there…i don’t know how to explain how much pressure will be off my shoulders if i know she’ll be there.
remember that I WILL POST a ‘leaving for the hospital’ post, so you won’t be wondering WHAT IF about me. and jerry WILL be posting sometime after the baby is born (maybe a day or two after??).
my mom is still here so she is going to help take down the Christmas tree (can you believe it’s still up??! if you knew me, you would believe it LOL). mom says it’s a fire hazard now. LOL. hopefully if i do a little dance or something while taking ornaments down, i will get my body in gear…
anyway thanks all for the support and encouragement, and especially prayers. i REALLY need prayer for patience at the moment…
love and hugs!!
