Reality



So last night I was lying in bed reading, as I have become totally wrapped up in books since I've been home. I was thinking to myself "I hope I can figure out how to read and breastfeed" That thought led to, "I will probably go to the library a lot" that led to " I wonder if THEY will let me take the baby to the library." Who are THEY you ask? I guess I was still running under the assumption that someone would be telling what I should/should not do with with the baby. Then scary reality set in, I am going to be in charge of this kid. YIKES. I will be making choices for her, dressing her, feeding her, letting others hold her. This is some scary shit.

I am 37 weeks pregnant and just this morning I discovered which baby bits are which in my belly. She is rolled into a ball on my left side, head down, and I know exactly where her scrawny behind is. The doc examined me yesterday and I am still over 1 cm dialated, head is engaged. She said that the babe is REALLY low and that is just how I carry. Doc thinks that my pelvis is wide so that is why she is snuggled so low and that I am not crazy for feeling like there is a head rolling around down there because there is in fact, a head rolling around down there. She also thinks that nothing looks like it will happen within the next few weeks. Cool with me!

This is just getting too weird.

Hi, thanks for stopping by my blog...

I too take unisom for severe morning sickness, along with Zofran. I now take 1/2 a pill in the morning and 1/2 at night. I'm trying to cut back so that I'll be able to rest without it after the baby.

I hate to take anything, but it was either that or be vomitting all of the time.

Good luck with your baby. I'm hoping it's over sooner rather than later at this point!

I wish I could tell you things get better, but I've never been 37 weeks pregnant. I quit at 31 and 32 weeks. If it makes you feel better, I thinkin of ya!

I'm just as nervous and apprehensive as you are about actually being responsible for the life of another human being! I have so much respect for mothers now. I mean, how did they do it?!
