36 week appt & random thoughts….
Posted by Sandra on December 4, 2007
Had my 36 week appt today. BP fine, weight hasn’t changed (woo hoo)… but hmmmm. Doc thinks I’ll be paging her this week. Says due to my mental state (just giddy to be alive) and physical state (feeling fantastic, and baby has dropped which I guess doesn’t always happen in 2+ mamas)… part of me thinks COOL, but part of me wants to ensure Ayla doesn’t spend a millisecond in the NICU either! The good news, however, is as of today I will not have to spend the night in the hospital (Ayla either) IF everything is healthy and happy with labor & delivery.
Cross your fingers baby cooks at least another week or so!
When you make a good friend, cherish them. I’m so thankful for the handful of friends I’ve made over the years – you know who you are and you know I love you so much, sometimes it’s painful.
And we’re gonna get a big duplex and fill it with cats and moth balls when our husbands die so we can grow old together. Yup.
I love my kids. I still sit amazed sometimes at them. They’re growing so fast. And are just so smart.
Where do 2 year olds get their sense of shame or embarrasment? In my house, we don’t spank, or even raise our voices, to Autumn… yet yesterday she spilled some cinnamon on the kitchen floor and proceeded to hide her head in the corner of the couch. Is it instinctual? She seemed ashamed… we’ve certainly never taught shame here! Weird….
I love my husband. I can’t believe I deserve him. He’s taught me to be humble – for 20+ years I was “independent”, in that I could take care of myself. He’s taught me to let someone else take care of me. He taught me it’s not “his” money and “my” money, it’s our money. And he sincerely means it. It upsets him if I slip and say “can I borrow $20.00″… he immediately corrects me with a forceful NO and says you can HAVE $20.00. Gawd, I love this sensitive being that is not only my best friend, but my soulmate and lover. I don’t know what I’d do without you.
Yes I do. I’ll go move into a duplex with my friends, fill it with cats….
