It's so weird and amazing to look at my tickers and see only 1. I remember when I first started those and they read 265 or something. It was a lot of days to go, but now I have reached the last day....according to the tickers...who knows how many more I actually have left???
A lot of you have suggested using a breast pump to help get things started...but I have one little problem. I don't have one. My plan was to rent one from the hospital and eventually buy one when I knew something about them and could get a better idea of what model I wanted. I guess I need to revise that plan. This is where you come in...
What pump should I buy?
I will be a stay-at-home-mom so I wont need to be mass pumping every day in the long run, but I know I would appreciate efficiency and quality vs. a difficult manual pump. I've heard that Medela are the best brand...is that right?
Please help!! Any and all advice will be much appreciated!!
And finally here is my (hopefully LAST) update...
How far along: 39 weeks, 6 days
Total Weight Gain: 10 million lbs....or something like that. (really only 35.5 but it feels like more..ugh)
Symptoms: Heartburn, braxton hicks, slightly swollen ankles, slight impatience and pure excitement.
Sleep: Fortunately I still sleep very well with almost no pain....its all about the Tempurpedic mattress!! Best investment ever!!!
Most recent Doctor’s Appt: 1 cm dilated and 50% effaced. Blood pressure was low and baby looked great. All good news.
Best Moment Last Week: Watching my cleaning lady scrub my whole house. She really helped to calm the nesting instincts I have but am too pregnant to act on. :)
Movement: Baby's movements have become more subtle since she is so cramped and her arms and legs are facing in. She gets the hiccups all the time.
Food Cravings: Nothing particular.
What I Miss: Being able to go out in public and not worry that my water could break at any second making it look like I peed my pants.
What am I looking forward to: GIVING BIRTH TO MY BABY GIRL!!!
Milestones: Reaching the last page of our pregnancy journal...now we're in the full term + pages....oh dear!!
How is Daddy? SUPER READY to meet his little girl. He just can't wait!!!!!
