You can tell I'm still pregnant - listing out the food items like that. It's so sad how small your stomach gets in the 9th month because I could have eaten all night!
As far as this baby girl on the way goes, today was interesting and made me put money on the fact that we may not make it to Friday's scheduled C-section. It could have been all of the activity related to getting ready for and going to church, but I experienced a lot of the typical early labor symptoms today. Fair amount of back pain throughout the day, and even some sharper contractions in the morning and in the afternoon. Nothing worth timing, but definitely attention-getting! I could still be a ways off, because I noticed the pain more so when I was hauling Robbie around, very active, on my feet, or when the baby moved around. I was able to take a 3 hour afternoon nap (thank you Robbie for sleeping that long!) and was very comfortable the whole time. So it could still be a while...
I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow (Monday) around lunch time, so it will be interesting to find out what she says - whether I've progressed at all, and if so, what they do in that kind of situation. Although it's most convenient if we are able to stick with the Friday C-section plan, I have to say that I would welcome an earlier delivery! I can tell the baby is still breech, and have totally given up hope of her turning.
We'll keep you posted... for now, my bags are packed and waiting by the front door. And I will probably be taking them with me to my appointment tomorrow, just in case. Rush labor much?! :)
