It's a little sad that I don't feel too bad about accomplishing nothing today except cleaning my kitchen. Hey- at least something got done, right?
I had a dr's appointment this morning, and Baby Girl passed her BPP in lightning speed. She had the hiccups duirng the ultra-sound, which counts as the breathing movement, so that sped things along. The lady doing the ultrasound could barely even see any of her head, as it is wedged so far down in my pelvis. Thus the explanation for the extreme discomfort I am now experiencing. Waddling has never seemed so appealing... Even though she is low, she's at -2 station, and I'm only like, 1.5 cm dilated, still 50% effaced. But, it could happen at any time. I was asked (and not told!) that I could schedule my induction for next week if we wanted to go that route. I declined for now, but would be lying if I said I wasn't tempted. They will strip my membranes at my next appointment (as I'll be 38.5 weeks), and we'll go from there. My normal doctor (who is very pushy about induction) is out of the office for the next 10 days. The doctor who delivered Corban (and is much more lax) is on call, and has absolutely no problem with letting me go on my own... if it happens before 40 weeks. Once we hit 40 weeks, he is more aggressive. Crossing my fingers that this baby girl comes SOON, and on her own accord.
I'm having a baby. Like for real. And really soon. Realizing that I could plan her birth to be seven days away has made this a sudden reality. Whoa. I'm excited.
I'll be even more excited after Wednesday, because Corban will have a new bedroom, and Baby Girl will have a nursery- not that she'll be in there any time soon, but still.
Anyway, I fell down the stairs tonight... while holding Corban. It really hurt, and I hurt a muscle in my forearm when I fell. Thankfully, we were both fine, but it was really scary! I'm sad to admit that it's the second time in just a few weeks that that has happened, but this time was much more of a fall than the last. It's hard to walk down stairs while practically doing a back bend to keep from falling forward- haha. I successfully ripped the handrailing off of the wall on my most recent fall though. Oops.
And... it's time for bed. Tomorrow is looking to be more productive, as I will be staying home most of the day. Goodnight!

  1. I'm so excited for you! (And be careful on those stairs!) I can't wait to hear about Baby Girl's entrance into the world. And take it easy, by the way. Don't worry about your house being clean. Relax. You're having a baby soon! :) :)
