I am really going to have a baby. There, I said it! I've been generally going about my business throughout PG and could be seen as procrastinating. Not because I haven't been excited (I am!) but because the thought of all the changes was overwhelming to focus on all at once. Most of my sisters had c-sections so I figured I would most likely end up having one too and really hadn't concentrated too much on labor. I figured I would face it inevitably one way or another. So far, our baby has been breeched. Well, fast forward to yesterday, when I had to see the doctor because of pelvic pain. Apparently, the baby turned and is now in the right position. (Realizing that the doctor could tell just by doing a quick look was in and of itself somewhat strange and while I realize all modesty is going to be tossed out the window, I just hadn't been focusing on it.)
So now I'm thrilled that the
baby has turned but also thinking, holy cow, I need to prepare myself
for actual labor. So you'll likely be hearing more from me in the
coming weeks as I try to collect information and experiences. AND, since I moved out here less than a year ago and work from home (travelling for work often), I'm ready to meet many of you ladies while on maternity leave and beyond!
