circle my mistakes
We are having another scan on Tuesday to see if baby boy is out of his breech position and if not then we need to start discussing ways to move him. We could try a version which is when two Doctors push on your belly in different directions trying to get him to move into position. It has to be done in a hospital as the pressure could make me go into labour. Apparently it can be quite painful...sooo, not looking forward to that. The only other option is a scheduled c-section. I'm just worried about the recovery from a section. |
I'm still feeling pretty good overall. Not too uncomfortable yet. I think having a long torso really is helping. I'm 5'7" and Brian is 5'11" but when we're sitting across from each other I'm the same height as him. I just have short stubby legs :p This is the only time in my life I am thankful about being so out of proportion! heh.
This weekend we're planning on getting some of the little stuff, like nipple cream, pads, baby toiletries etc. One of the girls at work was like 'oh you don't have to buy any of that! I have so much left over!' So I asked her if it was the J&J stuff and she said it was. I didn't know how to say that I don't want it because of the chemical load (there's a study suggesting one of the preservatives in there could lead to childhood cancers). Soooo..whatever she gives me I'll just donate.
I know there's likely to be more chemicals in the air off-gassing from the paint and furniture in his room but he's probably not going to be in there too much in the beginning anyway which gives things a chance to off-gas a little bit.
It feels like I've been pregnant for a really long time, but then I also feel like it hasn't been that long and I'm not ready yet. I go between thinking 'this is too soon!' to 'hurry up already'. I do kind of want him to be here already so I can stop worrying about how that's going to happen.
Not long now.
