Emotions are flying high at this point and between one day or hour and the next I can go from one extreme to the other! On Friday I was thinking about reading on ways to speed up labor and by that night I became terrified and decided I can wait 4+ weeks and be fine! This is scary! In the 1st and 2nd trimesters I was mainly terrified of labor but also anxious, but I calmed down the last few months and kind of chilled out about the labor & birth. Now that it is looming I have gone back to being scared of labor, birth and thereafter – and trying to talk myself to be calm about it.
At school they are in the process of hiring a sub to take my place until May 1. All 3 candidates are just out of school, so it should be interesting. I’m not going to worry about that so much but it is weird to be leaving in the middle of the year and thinking everyday could be my last for a few months. I’m sure once I have the baby I won’t care but thinking of the transitions right now is kind of stressful. Some days I feel like a couple of weeks would be good so the baby will be a good size & I can get back on my feet earlier and start training sooner and others I think March 1st would be just fine due to how our lives are going to flip upside down (in a good way but still)! I guess overall I want to have a healthy baby and not be induced for being late. Sleeping isn’t the most fun with the # of times I have to get up and then reposition, but other than that, I’m really not that uncomfortable. Just picture having a basketball under your shirt all the time and that is about it.
Make a vote! ( I just bought 12 jars of naturally nutty and I’m blaming Run to Finish – some PB may have to be a prize for the winner to get it out of my house!)
