Been a bit quiet lately, but still reading along!
Happy birthday MCB!
All of the pics of bubs are so cute!!
Channy - I haven't considered the needle - if they give it to me, meh - if they don't, meh! BUT in saying that, apparently I am WAY too relaxed and many women are fearing that I am not making decisions (yes I had someone 'fear' for me last week!) - to them I say 'meh' haha The reason I am so 'meh' about those kinds of things is because if I read too much, I freak the feck out!!!! Sometimes too much info is not good for me! So for example, last year when I had surgery, I was in hospital for 5 days. Each night they needed to give me a needle in my thigh to ensure my blood didn't clot (I was not able to move). That needle hurt like a b*Tch and from 4pm each day, I started to get anxious and panic knowing that needle was coming up - yet I have freaking tattoos - but this needle....ouch!!! Anyways, in antenatal classes the midwife discussed this needle and I think she even said it goes into the thigh - my eyes widened and I looked at DH 'please no!'. But having a chat with her, she told me different needles, etc etc...so I have to not think about it too much, otherwise I will have this baby and then get anxious when I see them heading towards my thigh....
I am day 3 into my mat leave and so far I have not relaxed! Tomorrow is my last day of appointments and then Friday I don't have a thing to do but watch tv! My goodness my body is craving it! My joints in my groin area are really starting to suffer and I am so tired! Today I half packed my hospital bag with the essentials, so if bub decides to head out, I will have the things that are needed in the first few days!
I have 3.5 weeks left (til due date) and am starting to get a little nervous (see! shouldn't over think things ) Have been reading up on positive birthing stories, letting the contractions 'push' bub out rather than me 'pushing' bub out and also trying to find out information on circumcision if we have a boy AND trying to decide on a middle name if we have a girl!
Bond - hope your little girl decides to make a move soon - I really love that you are not being pressured for intervention, I would like to think I would like bub to come on down when they are ready!!
Hi to everyone else!
