i'm not the only one
I dream EVERY night, sometimes multiple times, that I am breastfeeding. Then I wake in a panic when all I see in my arms is a pillow. I frantically start searching the bed for him, then realize he's still in his moses basket.
I have an insatiable appetite for cookies, cakes and ice cream.
I still have pregnancy brain.
My feet are bigger.
I have a constant backache.
Peeing a little when I sneeze or cough really hard is more common in women who had back labour.
I think I'm not interacting enough or the right way with my baby.

I on the other hand appear to possibly have developed my own infection in my stitches. Joy. They took a swab today so we'll find out for sure on Monday. All I know is I don't feel great. Boo hiss.

All natural birth (honestly not by choice) but worth every agonizing moment once he was placed on my belly! Nothing can describe the instant unconditional love that overwhelms you.

8 days late...
42 weeks is still OK for pregnancy, it's just after that you start to get concerned. So Stickybean has 4 more days to come willingly on it's own or we'll unfortunately have to go for induction. This was last on my list of birthing preferences. It can take days, for which I will have to stay in the hospital and be hooked up to monitors. I'm already bored and I have all the comforts of home! Plus induction make labour more intense and painful and increases the odds of interventions. Bit of a stretch from my most preferred method which was to use the pool.
Anyhoo, that's where we're at. You're worth the wait Stickybean, I just hope we can make your entrance into this world as calming as possible under the circumstances!

Things have been good. I'm not really uncomfortable like everyone else says they were at the end. I feel mostly the same as I've been for the last 2 months. Maybe I get tired a little faster when walking and climbing stairs, but that's about it. I think a lot of it has to do with your comfort level in just dealing with pain. Yes my hips ache, yes my stretchmarks itch and ache, but I don't dwell on it and just carry on with what I need to do.
I'm grateful I'm able to sleep well most nights. I've got my cozy bed and like 8 million pillows for support which seem to keep my body in a good position for resting. Yah I have to get up and pee 3 to 5 times, but again it's just the way it is. Frankly I just remind myself I'll be getting up more often once it's out of me, so I should enjoy these moments!
I'm not nervous about labour and birthing. I think we've done a good job educating ourselves about all the possibilities and realities of what is to come. No sense getting worked up about the unknown, just go with it. This is where my sense of adventure is coming in really handy :)
I just hope for the best outcome and a healthy baby!
Stay well peeps.

My scar is also hurting and stretching at the bottom. I have to go to hospital Thursday to take a closer look and see what the next 2 months might look like for me.
Other than that, Stickybean is doing well, plumping up and has a nice healthy heartbeat :)
