Hi! I wouldn't worry too much about nappies... They'll show you how to do all that in the hospital and I'm pretty sure you'll put plenty on backwards/too loose and end up in a mess.... We all did It's how you learn!
Im beginning to get very nervous about him being here too. I have wanted him all my life and now that he is a month a bit out from turning up, im scared crapless! All normal feelings im certain- we will all learn and adapt to be the best mummies we can be!
So, rearranged some furniture in our bedroom and MADE the Pack n play fit! We are going to use it as the baby's bed for the first couple months- at least till I go back to work in January. Thanks everyone for your help!
Hey everybody! I can't believe some of you are full term!!! I've got 5 days still but baby needs to stay put at least until the 15th (38+3) as DH will be out of town... How is everyone feeling? Any signs of impending labor yet? Getting closer! XOXO
37 weeks today and so ready for this little guy to come out. I was a "roomy one centimeter" at my last doctor's appointment Monday and my doctor seemed pleased with that as I'm a first timer. Of course, she also followed that up with "or you could walk around like that for five more weeks, yet!" Would be nice if babies adhered to a set of rules!
I don't know about everyone else but I felt pretty good up until about 34 weeks- then suddenly I started developing strange and almost unbearable pregnancy side effects- crazy painful lockjaw that hurts in my ear when I chew, and my right hand is numb pretty much all the time now...
I also found out not more than 3 hours ago that I am positive for Group B Strep. I'm hoping for a natural birth and am going to be really bummed if they decide to induce me in order to do the antibiotics when (if!) my water breaks before active labor... Anyone have experience with this? I'm a little scared...
I'm still feeling pretty good. I do get random pressure in my lower abdomen but if I lie down it goes away. I will find out my Group B Strep results on Wednesday. I have no experience with it though as I didn't have it last time.
Yay, full term! I'm officially giving this baby girl her eviction notice effective today!
