My day with baby Joel went well yesterday, except for he is sick so he just really wasn't feeling well. poor little guy. I am so loving taking care of him on Thursdays.
Had an OB appointment yesterday. My glucose screening test - I passed with flying colors!!!!!! YAY! And i am not anemic. My blood pressure, urine, belly measurements and baby heartbeat all good. I lost a pound, but I don't think they were worried about it. i think last time i was dressed for winter and this time for summer. my Uggs alone probably weighed 2 pounds last time. i also had the FNN test (to see if i am producing labor hormone) and I'm not. Great appointment. One nurse that I had never seen before was very surprised to see me prego with a newborn and asked how I accomplished that one. Funny!
We had our childbirth class last night. The topic was L&D. let me just say stressful. Hearing all that stuff got me really scared and feeling like I won't be able to get through it all. I have this plan of how I want it to go, but there are so many things that are out of my control, things that could happen, things I can't plan for. I just need to let God take the driver's seat and I need to move on over to the passenger side or maybe the back seat or even the trunk! Any way, after that class i came home being very poopy and not in a good mood at all, but lots of talking and praying has helped and today is a new, much better day. i will get through this and God will be with me. It is not going to be easy (hence word labor), but I am not alone. It won't be easy for our little baby either. Or Sean. Stupid Eve for eating that dang apple!!!!! ;) So, while i can say all day i want a drug-free, vaginal delivery, we can take our birth plan with our pages of instructions to the hospital, I just have to remember to have an open mind, let go and just let it happen.
