I'm 37 today and very grateful that my little girls are still inside and not yet outside to celebrate it with me. But there have already been a couple of dance parties in there today. K is working a wonky schedule this week so we're having our Anniversary/Birthdays celebration on Saturday which is actually his birthday.
Had some uncomfortable, slightly scary days this week. I had some cramping going on, especially after I ate. No pattern though so I was pretty sure it wasn't premature labor. But I called the doctors office once it had lasted 24 hours and while they were also pretty sure it wasn't premature labor, the nurse didn't like that I had to pause the conversation to breathe through a pain going through me. So they had me come in for a quick cervix check.
Fortunately, my cervix hasn't shortened at all in the last 4 weeks. Still around 2.5 or so and holding strong! Heart rates are good, everything is just going good. I'm just experiencing some pain because I'm really pregnant.
Today I'm testing a theory. The cramps seem to be the strongest immediately after I eat. Especially my first meal of the day. I think, I'm not sure, but I think the common denominator is milk. So I'm trying to limit my milk intake today to see if the cramps subside or if they appear directly after drinking milk. Limiting my milk intake is really hard because it's been my diet staple this whole pregnancy. And a morning meal without milk, just, how? Cereal goes with milk! Breakfast foods with soft flavors all go with milk! And I hate eating in the morning anyway so I've been surviving by drinking an instant breakfast drink, and that's milk! And lattes! Argh!!!!!!
My baby shower is on Sunday and I'm actually somewhat convinced I'm going to still be pregnant for that! We have a scheduled C-section date, June 22. Will I make it to that appointment? I dunno, but it's nice having a definite end date for the pregnancy.
Squeeeee!!!!! I'm gonna have babies!!!!!
