I had acupuncture on Friday and my feet were still swollen stumps by the end of the day. As I was leaving work, the unborn started really banging on my cervix. It took my breath away a few times and freaked out my 24 year old coworker when I paused and grabbed the desk and sort stood there and tried to breath. By the time I got home I couldn’t get comfortable and I was feeling pretty shitty. I went to the bathroom and noticed some blood. Just a small amount, but the first time I’ve seen blood in… oh, since fertility treatments started. I called the on call OB and was told to take it easy on Saturday and if it got worse or started feeling regular contractions to head to the hospital. Well, that was a wake-up call, ladies and gents. I could have this baby soon. VERY SOON.
The baby is still in there and I am still uncomfortable and huge and sweaty and lumbering but I have two episodes to lock before I can be done with work (2 episodes equals 2 weeks…). (Cervix check this morning revealed a soft but closed cervix.)
Seth assembled the crib. I ordered the bassinet. I canceled my baby shower (it was supposed to be next Sunday but I seriously cannot deal) some of you will think I’m crazy, other people will understand. We’re going to do a baby coming out party sometime in September. I’m exhausted and cranky and uncomfortable but not at all ready to be unpregnant.
