Nearing the end.

I don't know why it comes as a surprise to me that I suck at keeping my blog updated.  But yes.  I do, in fact, royally suck at blogging.

The end of this pregnancy is near.  C-section is scheduled for Friday at 3 p.m. if lungs are mature after amnio.  Holy crap. 

I just got out of Triage.  I felt close to no fetal movement for the entire day and eventually felt nervous enough to go in.  His heart rate was only 110 when I got there.  They promptly woke him up and everything looked good.  AFI was on the low end of normal - so I'm back for daily NSTs an BPP's until delivery.  I was supposed to work this week . . . but I guess not.  Which is good.  I'll stay home, cuddle the 2 year old, and drink lots of water.   I continue to have runs of false labor - lasting for a few hours and then it will stop.  We're woefully unprepared to have this little one enter our lives ... but it'll work out.

I'm still super worried about a post-partum hormone crash.  I put everyone on high alert to watch me after delivery.  Other than that ...anxiety seems to be fairly under control.  Except see above triage visit.   Ha.  I still delude myself pretty well, apparently.

Wish me luck.  Here goes nothing.
