Only 4 1/2 Days Left

Here's me right before bed on Wednesday night. 38 weeks, exactly one week before my scheduled delivery. My cankles are back. In the past week I've had good days and bad days. My doctor had to give me a prescription for nausea and to "slow down my system." I was having to eat every three hours and was in the bathroom way too much. I'm managing just to take a half dosage at night only now. It keeps me from waking up and needed to eat and wanting to barf. Okay, too much information, but this is all the journaling I've been doing.

I only have three pairs of pants that I fit into. I'm not working anymore and I'm resting a lot. I've been reading books on c-sections the past 3 days. Today I'm going to try and find sheets to fit the bassinet part of my pack n' play and buy a second car seat base, other than that I'm all geared up. I'm visiting a friend today - she has some baby gifts to give me:) And tonight I'm going to dinner at the new Cheesecake Factory with two or three girlfriends. Earlier this week I bought everything I need to make my favorite meal (dhal bhat) but I can't get into spending more than 15 minutes on my feet in the kitchen so I haven't done it yet.

The past 2 nights I've had dreams of being in the hospital for delivery. I'm excited.

Did you know that only 3% of babies are still in a breech position this late in pregnancy? This boy is starting out rebelling and trying to be unique. I opted not to try a version to turn the baby, I hope that was the right thing to do. We really want 4 kids and I don't want having a cesearean with my first to ruin my chances.

Anyway, I'm just rambling here. Love you all!

Your belly is crazy and pointy and looks fake! It's crazy that you are still little everywhere else! I'm sure things will be fine with your c-section. Good luck!

i will be thinking about you! don't worry about c-sections limiting the amount of babies you can have. the doctors i have had with both of my c-sections have assured me that these days c-sections aren't as limiting as they used to be. when i had oliver, my doctor looked at my uterus and told me i was good for 4 or 5 more. is this too much info for a blog comment? anyway, good luck! you will do great!

ps jonah and mabel can be friends. they are our breech babies.

my c-section baby wasn't breech - just comfortable in her womb. I'll be thinking about you too.

Jonah certainly has made that belly his own, it's crazy pointy! Were you having a braxton contraction when it was taken?

I cant wait to see my new little nephew, it makes me teary. I love you and your awesome hubby, may God bless your new little family!

Wow! You're so close! Congratulations! My sister Laura has had 4 c-sections and four perfect little girls! I hope all goes well. I'm sure you'll do great! Good luck!

Good Luck Em...I'm thinking about you!

Good luck with everything. You will do great! And, cesareans don't limit the number of kids you can have, as everyone else has said. With your next one, you can always try to do a VBAC.

I'll be thinking of you and praying that everything will run smoothly!

Get your rest, and ( I posted this on your myspace) spend alone time with Brandon. It may be the last time you two have to yourselves in a long, long while!

Aren't you just the cutest?? I bet you don't even look pregnant from behind. Well, I guess now you don't look pregnant at all since this comment is after you've already had Jonah!
