Week 39 has been very final. My last day at work was Monday, and boy was I ready for it! I was so uncomfortable at work (and it was my easiest day!) I planned my cleaning/getting ready/preparing/errands for the last three days. I spread out my “outings” so I wouldn’t be cooped up in the house. Tuesday I finished the baby’s room (as my last post indicated) and ran errands to the bank and post office. Wednesday I finished my Christmas shopping and cleaned some more of the house. I tried to make peanut butter balls but I burnt the chocolate in the double boiler, I heated it up too quickly! opps! Today I had my doctors appointment and had to run by the church to deliver a donation present for a little boy and then I finished the peanut butter balls and I made some chocolate covered fruit (my favorite). Tomorrow will round off my wrapping and last cleaning of the house and I’ll be ready for Baby Grande with house cleaned (check) and ready for Christmas (check)!
As I mentioned today was my 39 week appointment. I went in the morning since I am not working so Ben didn’t get to come. But it was better than waiting 45 minutes for the doctor like usual. I was in the room in about 5 minutes. Any-who, she mentioned that if I was dilated a bit she would strip my membrane to get things possibly started however she said I was not dilated. Baby G is staying put for now. Our next appointment isn’t until next Friday (Thursday being Christmas) and our babies due date. So hopefully she comes – a part of me wants either this weekend or after Christmas. I would prefer not to be in the hospital on Christmas day, but baby comes when baby comes.
