Week 39 has arrived and man oh man it’s been an exciting week! Last Friday at my sonogram appt to check for fluid it was low enough they decided that I needed to stay the night at the hospital on Saturday and possibly be induced on Sunday. After an extremely uncomfortable and stressful night they decided I could go home with instructions to keep drinking water put my feet up relax and come in to the doctors office on Tuesday to get checked again. Tuesdays appointment resulted in mildly low fluid and a decision to schedule for an induction….So we are scheduled for Thursday the 9th of August. Fingers are so crossed that I do this before then I REALLY do not want to be induced if I can help it.
On Sunday night Nathan spent some time huffing and puffing and a ton of time looking at me out of the corner of his eye and laughing at me. At 8pm I decided we needed to clean up a little….well cleaning up a little turned into cleaning a lot and rearranging some furniture and hanging things etc. When I got sick of the laughing and demanded he tell me what was so dang funny he just replied and I quote, “I believe this is known as nesting baby”. He is such a pain in the hind end sometimes. Its a good thing I adore him!
I am still trying to work until the very end and make sure everything is in order as much as possible, not that I plan to be off long but still. I am hoping to be back to work in 2 weeks. I can bring my little greenbean with me and we have a swing and a bouncy seat and a pack n play to take to my office so he should be comfortable. I only work 4 hours a day so I think its going to work out fine. I know I am probably being too optimistic but it seems reasonable.
Nathan installed the car seat and all of the hospital bags etc are loaded into the trunk so we are about as prepared in that department as I think we can be. Now if only I was mentally prepared! Everything I read and or people tell me make it sound as if I should just be done with being pregnant at this point but I just am not. I don’t know if its just nerves and general fear of the unknown or if its just that I know this is my one and only pregnancy and am not really ready to give it up yet. I know the next part is going to be awesome and I am looking forward to it but I am a little sad that this part is almost over. I am the only one holding him at this point I feel every turn , kick, hiccup etc and I am going to have to share that with everybody very soon. Selfish I know but there it is. I’m getting emotional so this post is officially over.
