Feeling Good

Tuesday, November 27, 2007

I feel better than I did a month ago. In fact, last night, I nearly slept through the night, only getting up once or twice for water or the bathroom. I'm amazed at how good I feel & the energy I have right now. I'm not making plans this week, but just staying home & trying to maintain order so that the house is nice & orderly for the birth. When I do go into labor, there are some things that Landon will need to do:
1. Set up the birth tub & fill w/ water.
2. Make the bed (fitted sheet, sheet, shower curtain, fitted sheet, sheet, quilt). That way, after the birth, there will be a made bed beneath the shower curtain, which makes a great protective covering for $2.49).
3. Set up the video camera.
4. Take Samuel to neighbor's house.
I think those are the basics, anyway.
I really don't think the baby will come this week. I'm thinking next week, but part of me acknowledges that I feel this way only because I don't want to be disappointed if she doesn't arrive this week. So, I'm telling myself it will be another week so that I don't get my hopes up. I've been declining cervical checks for the past three weeks, because I think they are unnecessary, and really only serve to get your hopes up or down. If they say you're 3 cm. & 80% effaced, you start to feel like you could go any day, but you could go another two weeks. Then, there are the moms that are 0 cm. dilated & 0% effaced, and their water breaks that night & they go into labor. So, no uncomfortable cervical checks for me!


P.S. Samuel is much better today & at preschool. I guess yesterday's illness was another 10 hour thing. He was so sick, then by last night seemed back to normal. It's amazing how quickly some of these viruses can move through a toddler. For adults, it's much different.

Hey Karli, its Andrea. (Joel's wife) Glad to hear you are doing so well! one of your blogs made me think about G-diapers, have you heard of them? http://www.gdiapers.com/ They seem pretty cool, for those who arent sure they can handle cloth, but dont want to fill up the landfills too much either. I hope to do them with our next baby, but we havent decided. (we've got time though!) Anyway, I thought I'd pass along the link incase you hadnt seen them before! Good luck and best wishes!
