I had false labour on Friday for about 4 hours with regular (but not very painful) contractions, but I was pretty sure all along it wasn't the real deal. I debated whether or not to phone the midwife, but then all of a sudden everything slowed down to a near stand still, and here I am on Monday with no baby or imminent signs that anything is really happening. Boo. Tomorrow is my 41 week appointment. I'll probably find out how much time I "really" have before I am forced to switch care over. I am seriously dreading it because the clock is t-i-c-k-i-n-g. I am stressed out. I will probably have to have an idea of which OB I "want" to switch to, and honestly I am not overly thrilled with any of my choices as just about anyone will likely be very c-section pushy. I am trying oh-so-hard to not get discouraged.... Pray for me, please.
On Friday we were at my hubby's Mom and Dad's house for a visit, and Ellie started sneezing a lot. Well in the night things got quite brutal and she was up just about all night crying and not feeling good with a major stomach ache. So, yes, I was up nearly all night too. On the plus side, my hubby is off work now so he can help me out a lot more now, which is a HUGE blessing. Last night she was so exhausted she slept nearly all night! Thankfully I got a half-decent sleep, too!
It is FREEZING over here right now. Last week we had temps above zero Celsius and practically all the snow was melted, which is WEIRD for prairie winters. This week it is like a shock to the system...snow and COLD COLD COLD. Icy roads. -20's Celsius.
As for the menu...I'm not planning much since things could change quickly in the next few days.
