    Same story different day: my BP is way up there today and higher than ever. I have a doctor appointment in a couple hours so she said lay low at home and just come in then and be prepared for an induction if it's still high. While of course my child's safety outweights everything I am a little devastated of getting admitted without a pedicure first. My feet are downright spooky at this point that it would be a common courtesy to everyone involved.

    @theshannondee any friends or family nearby that could come over and do it?  Otherwise, maybe just soak  your feet?  Obviously they won't be scrubbed and polished, but soaking them might feel good for you!

    @theshannondee Some people are concerned with vagina presentation, others with pedi-presentation. I'm sure hubby can help with both ;)

    ETA: Hope everything goes well at the appointment today and your little one can stay put a little longer!

    FFFC: After seeing a story on my fb feed about a woman who was told she was having one sex and ended up with another, I am overwhelmed by the anxiety that it will happen to me. I was supposed to be a boy according to every ultrasound my mom had, and this baby was really bad about having hands covering the genitals during all of the ultrasounds I've had. My husband and I have picked a name and decided on whether or not to circumsize, just in case. I am prone to anxiety issues in the first place, but now I'm so focused on this that I'm in a rush to get to the birth/not taking the time to 'enjoy' the last few weeks of pregnancy. I'm worried that me not instinctively knowing better about the sex of my child would be a sign that I am way out of my league with becoming a parent. I feel like the baby will be confused because I'm not using the same name she (he?!) has been hearing in utero for months (which I know is far beyond the capacity of a newborn). It's like my anxiety has found a way to channel all of the normal parenting fears and pin them with the sex of my child, which means my anxiety is not as under control as I have led myself to believe.

    @Jodi1980 ha I saw that at Sephora and laughed! Now I'm kicking myself... 
    @megstervt yeah I will probably sit on the edge of the bath and do my best! 
    @LadyFleck haha so true... thanks I am hoping we get a few more days!

    @nerdchild people were always asking me "what do you think it is" at the beginning and I never had any "gut feeling" or "knowing", I usually just told them it looked a lot like a t-rex at 9 weeks.  Even now that we know it's a boy (ultrasounds are as clear as they can be) I still don't feel any different.  I've worried that this somehow makes me less connected to my pregnancy and baby, like what's wrong with me that I don't have these instinctual gut feelings about the sex of my baby?! Does that mean I'm missing other instincts too??  Just know you're not alone in that part of your anxiety.

    @Nerdchild @megstervt I had every gut feeling that this baby was going to be a girl. I was positive. Ultrasounds say otherwise. I know what you mean about not having other instincts, but I think that's just us over thinking everything.  I think it's normal to worry that we won't bond, or won't have the mothering instincts. Up until a month ago or so I had a huge disconnect between "I'm going to have a baby" and "there's a baby in my belly" like I couldn't connect the fact that I was carrying my son.  Then it just clicked. All  normal.

    theshannondee you could always wears socks. I would not be concerned with how my feet look if the health of my baby was being questioned.

    @theshannondee I promise you zero of the medical staff will give a crap about your feet. That said, can you stop for a pedi on the way in? Do whatever makes you happy in these (possible) final hours before induction/motherhood takes over. I also suggest getting in a really good meal.

    @theshannondee if it's really bad I would have your husband trim the nails and just go. If you live in a big city there are manicurists that come to your house and do an express mani pedi real quick. I do hope your BP went down and and all is well.

    my FCCC: not that juicy but "working from home" is getting increasingly difficult. Yesterday, I told myself I would take a 2 min break so I sat down and pet my cat for a bit and FELL ASLEEP for almost two hours! I've become one of those people that falls asleep anywhere! My work computer had my away message on and I was worried someone was going to ask where I went from 2-4 pm. Oops.

    @BeachTigress well obviously I don't care about my toes when it comes to my child's safety, I stated that in my original post. I'm packing socks but the rooms were actually super warm on our tour and when I was admitted earlier this week. Fingers crossed I just missed the AC panel!

    @MandyJulie I know they don't. Nothing phases those people! That's not a terrible idea though to stop on the way. Knowing me cuddle time with my dogs will win out over a pedi on the way so we will see!

    @nerdchild At our anatomy scan, the gender determination was a little sketchy. Baby was being stubborn and not opening her legs so the tech called in the physician to double check and her guess was that we were having a girl based on what she saw (or didn't see). We've gone with girl since then, but a small part of me wonders "what if?" I guess we will find out soon enough!

    I'm so traumatized by the side eye people give about late posting that I've missed like 10 HDBDs and more than a few ticker changes. I send my bump pics to a group texts of my pregnant girlfriends instead for the AWing.

    My confession: A friend threw herself a shower last weekend for her second boy in two years. I intentionally gave her a well-used version of the exact same gift I gave her for the first. 
    God I wish I could have been there to see the look on her face.....

    I have two FFFCs. One: I am anti-zoo (with the exception of zoos like the Smithsonian's National Zoo that do research/rehabilitation/protect endangered species, etc). Two: I am so belated on writing my thank you notes from the shower. At this point my goal is to get them done before baby is born.
    I'm still doing thank you notes from my wedding in September.  I had great intentions but we moved a week after the wedding and I misplaced the bag of cards for a few months and then life got busy....I'm so embarrassed about it. On the other hand, I had one of my showers last Sunday and did all the thank you cards that night and had them mailed Monday morning. Hoping that redeems me a bit. 
  • Options
    @stellaluna14 That's my secondary goal. Though I figure I'll have a better chance of getting them done if it happens pre-baby.

  • Options
    Another FFFC: If I go into labor, I'm letting myself off the hook wherever I'm at with thank you notes and moving on with my life. Eating fresh pineapple and drinking my red raspberry leaf tea for lunch... I f***ing hate writing thank you's for stuff I didn't want to people I don't know. The important people in my life, sure! The rest of this list who I wouldn't recognize in a crowd :\
