I sort of love this waiting game. It's the most wonderful torture! We are absolutely clueless as to when Avett is coming and I love the anticipation. We never got to go through this with Evaleigh because they took her almost a week early. There were no surprises, which on one hand was nice, but this waiting game is so much fun! So I can officially say I've never been THIS pregnant before. However, I am at the point where if one more person asks me if it's twins in there, I'm afraid of what my reaction might be. Punching could be involved.
I am so excited for the moment when it's really go time. I wonder where we will be and what time it will be. I really feel like we have just about everything ready. I am in a constant state of wanting to keep the house clean so when it does happen we are bringing Avett home to an organized and clean home...my sweet John is obliging my crazy hormonal pregnant woman behaviors and is right in there with me keeping things up.
I had an appointment today and it was the first cervical check I've had since switching doctors, which I love. Not that the numbers really matter at this point but suffice it to say things are really moving along and getting ready to go up in there. He was pretty impressed with how low Avetts head was. It's a sensation that is all new to me. Since Evie was breech I never got to experience a dropped and engaged baby head in my pelvis. It feels like I've been riding a horse non stop for weeks. Honestly, I'm so happy and relieved to know he is in just the right position, after having a breech baby it's easy to be gun shy and paranoid about baby positions.
I really attribute a lot my progress so far to Red Raspberry Leaf Tea and Evening Primrose Oil pills. Ever since one of my doctors midwives suggested them to me more than two weeks ago I have felt such a renewed source of energy. Around 37 weeks I was ready to throw in the towel. Although I still have rough days when I am diligent with the RRL and EPO I feel so much better and it gives me the extra push to make it through the day with an active little toddler. We are so excited to meet this little boy, he is going to rock our world.
39 weeks and 2 days.
You look so pretty! Good luck with your non-breech delivery!
I'm going to have to try those teas with my second! I was about done around 38 weeks with Clara and now I'll have a toddler I need to keep up with!
