Another week down...days to go, a month to go -- who knows. I hate the waiting game. I've been waiting for 2.5 years, I really just want my baby.
This week I'm just feeling larger, crabbier, sorer, and just so over pregnancy. Nothing much has changed with me over the last week. I've had tons of steady contractions but no cervical change. But, I haven't really had any other new symptoms develop. Nora is doing well, kicking away -- heartbeat at 140.
I did find out that I'm GBS (group B strep) positive. It's really not a huge deal, and a pretty common pregnancy complication. It just changes my birth plan a bit since I need to go to the hospital sooner than expected to get IV antibiotics. It also means that we need to stay in the hospital longer so Nora can be monitored. I'm not really happy about either of these things, but it is what it is. I'll try to make the best of it.
I know that the longer I'm in the hospital, the more aggressive Morgan and I are going to have to be about questioning decisions the doctors/nurses want us to make during labor. I think as a second time Mom, I'm more prepared to do this. I'm sure I'll be everyone's favorite...
We did make some headway around here as far as baby prep goes. The nursery is coming together. We have our meals made for June. I made a list of things I need to pack for the hospital. You know, all the stuff I had done at 35 weeks with Henry.
I fully expect to be pregnant by 39 weeks, lets just hope it's a quick week.
