Um do you realize that in less than a week from this post, I’ll be holding my newest bundle of joy in my arms? I. Can’t. Even.
I had a little scare late last week/during the weekend when the baby was deciding to be slightly inactive. It totally freaked me out. Luckily things have improved and as of Sunday, she was back to her active self.
I have had this feeling in my gut that we aren’t going to make it to the 16th. I just don’t feel right this week and am super nervous that I’m going to go into labor any day. I would love to make it to next Tuesday but I just don’t know if this kid cares about my plans. I guess I just have some strong, independent daughters.
I had my last OB appointment Wednesday (like for possibly forever). Thankfully my OB was able to calm some of my “omg the baby is coming early” fears with a cervical check. Only dialated a fingertip or so, which was the same as my last cervical check at 34 weeks. Luckily, my OB is on call for the next three weeks as the other doctor in their practice covered for her the last three weeks. That means if anything happens and I go into labor early, she’ll be there. Yay! Oh and she checked the baby with this crazy buzzer thing. New baby was not a fan and scurried around in my body to get away from it. Apparently the lack of movement this weekend must have been just lazy days. My doctor recommended I call her next time that happens though just to be safe!
