40 weeks today
i've still been feeling pretty good lately. the dr. says i'm ready to go "anytime." i did have some harder contractions through the night for 30 to 40 minutes at a time, at about 10 minutes or more between; then a couple hours break, then similar patterns again. i definitely need to sit in different positions at times to relieve my discomfort but all in all, i'm doing fine.
at 10pm last night i was so tired and was worried that i might be going into labour. i'm not feeling particularly rested today, but i'm glad it didn't happen last night.
plans for today are to go to MOPS (yes, even though i wrote off going there, i am going to go and just keep diedre in the main room with me. she does fine with all the ladies and just plays quietly or wanders around and shares my snacks--many of the kids in her age group stay in the room with their mom's because of similar issues). MOPS ends at naptime, so we can return home for a nice nap and see how the rest of the day goes.
derek's coworkers are all having the day off today, but derek will still do estimates since he might be taking days off anytime soon (well, hopefully this baby comes at some point ha ha).
diedre and i have been spending lots of time with my mom lately as we went there Sunday night to sleep (as a family) and spent all day Monday, then returned Tuesday morning after the dr.'s appointment and stayed all day. its a good thing Grandma and Grandpa live so close to the hospital, it adds peace of mind to know we can stay there if we need to.
