I'll do belly pic, and probably other random pictures later today. But I'm getting a lot of people asking me for an update so I wanted to get it out there.
I felt certain that things would happen on June 5. And yet.....nothing. My hunches are broken I guess. As of today, I'm 35 weeks pregnant.
I have been having contractions, but nothing with rhythm and nothing more than a little "ermf". So braxton hicks, not labor. Girls are dancing quite a bit and we're just on pins and needles waiting for something to actually happen. Every place that I tend to sit is now covered with puppy pads in case my water breaks.
Assuming I don't go into labor between now and then, I should have actual information for an update tomorrow. I've got an ultrasound, NST, OB appointment, pre-admission interview, blah blah blah.
The diaper delivery that's a gift from my grandmother came today so we are now swimming in premie sized pre-folds. We have about a weeks worth of premie disposables too so we've got options. The intention is to use cloth during the day, and probably disposable at night to make night time changes as fast and easy as possible. But every plan is flexible so we'll see what actually ends up happening and purchase/order from the service accordingly.
Speaking of my grandmother, my phone call is unfortunately not the only phone call that my parents are waiting for. She and I are kind of in the same boat, just counting the minutes before we enter the next phase of existence. It's going to be sad for us survivors when she's gone, but at this point it will be a relief and a blessing to her. She's 100 years old, surrounded by family every day, and has lived more than most ever ask for. Her mind is still fully functional, sharp as ever, but her body won't allow her any daily stimulation. Her sight and her hearing are pretty much gone so she can't read, or watch tv, or listen to the radio, so she's kind of buried within her own deteriorating body.
So yeah, my entire extended family is kind of keeping the phone lines free waiting to see which phone call comes first.
I'll try to write something more interesting later. But there you have the basic update. Nothing has changed, and we're in a constant state of ready to respond when it does!
