My belly is getting just monstrous...I promise I'll post some pics soon. But trust me, it's BIG!
I'm really hoping I make it another 2.5 weeks, which will bring me to 36 weeks. After that, the babies can come whenever as far as I'm concerned. In fact, the thought of waiting until 38 weeks (which is when my OB said she'd schedule delivery if they don't come sooner) sounds crazy to me - could I really make it that long? Seems impossible....
We had our nursery closet installed today. It will be painted next week and then our curtains and new windows will be installed the week after. If I can just get through all of that before delivering it would be heavenly! Keep your fingers crossed for me girls!
I have passed my last two NSTs without incident, thank goodness. I did have a few contractions again today but the doctor who reviewed it said it wasn't necessary to send me to Labor & Delivery. Phew!
My main source of complaint right now is carpel tunnel and heaviness in the pelvis. Sleep is just so-so, but it's been that way for a while now. I'm in this weird place where I am simultaneously so ready to be done with this pregnancy and also desperately hoping to stretch it out another 2 - 3 weeks. We'll see what happens, talk about having no control over this outcome!
Oh, and I wanted to thank everyone for the very helpful comments re: c-section vs. "natural" delivery as well as contractions. It made me feel a lot better to hear how many of you had frequent Braxton Hicks in the third trimester. I'm getting used to it now and not freaking out about it anymore. I think right now I'm leaning towards trying for "natural" with the understanding that it may not happen for me. We'll see how I feel when the time comes, though!
Hope everyone is doing well, whatever stage you are at...
