Due date tomorrow

  • Well, my due date is tomorrow, and 3/5 of my children were born on their due date or a day before. One was born 20 days before. My eldest was born 10 days after. (First one was also 10 days after, the one I gave up.)

    So... kinda scared in a way (not overly, but still, the smallest hint of apprehension is there) praying things are going to go all right.

    My last one had the cord wrapped around his neck, but was totally fine. He was also posterior (facing the wrong way) which made things more painful than normal.

    So, please pray for little Ruth Agnes, that she comes into the world uneventfully, and with a marvelous healthy first cry, and many more after.

    I will pray for a safe delivery for you!  Today is the Feast of OL of the Snows, so put the name Mary in her name somewhere.

  • Lol, PfT, two days before you're due to give birth you're here railing against FishEaters feminists?  I always thought more preparations were involved...  Like a boxer before the big fight, perhaps just sitting in a dark room with a spirit of recollection, steeling your nerves.  Shows you how much experience I have with preggo women.

    Rofl.

    I'll tell you what. I have been going to bed earlier, and taking a nap here and there, and trying to escape this heat. Believe me, I'm rested enough.

    Most of my work gets done in the morning, and some after my nap in the afternoon. I stayed up a little later last night but I got enough sleep. I'm ready to go to the hospital anytime, at least when she signals that she's ready to come out. I am well-rested.

    The only way I can "steel my nerves" is to just breathe and focus on other things rather than the pain of it all. I can usually handle it pretty well, except when I'm not allowed to move. Lamaze is a very good thing and I'm thankful that somehow, I always remember exactly what to do.

    Last time, my son had the cord wrapped around his neck :(. This caused me to have to be on the monitor so the nurses and the doctor could monitor his heart rate. Whenever I would have a contraction, his pulse would plummet, practically down to nothing. It was so terribly frightening. He was also posterior, which means he was facing the wrong way, and the doctor wasn't going to risk turning him. So, dealing with the pain was very hard for me last time, because I couldn't go and let water run over my back (posterior babies cause tremendous "back labor." Horrible pain in the lower back that is almost unbearable, especially when you're stuck in bed, and you can't go in the shower or walk around.)

    Being sweaty and uncomfortable doesn't help. I would have gone and hung out at my parents' house today, (temperature being 66 over there in the house, and approaching 90 when the sun blazes in at MY house) but that would have added an extra 15 minutes of travel time to the hospital, and my labors are relatively short, since I'm "old hat" at it.

    Yep! I knew this! It's also my grandmother's birthday tomorrow. She'd have been 109 if she were still here. Her name was Ruth.  :smile:
