Today Was Late for My Appointment.

But luckily, only by 10 minutes.  The receptionist acted like it was a big deal, but it wasn't to my midwife.  **thankful**  I got to meet another midwife today (I have 5 of them) and I really liked her.  She was energetic and talkative.  She's happy with my blood pressure and weight gain (glad someone is!).  She said that the baby is hanging out sideways inside of me, but that they won't get concerned for another month.  If she's not head down by the end of December they will start talking about taking some action, though what that is I am not sure.  The midwife also said that because I've had these three pregnancies so close together, my muscles and uterus haven't snapped back all that well and that is one reason why this baby isn't head down yet.  She's got a lot more space to spin and twirl and swim around in.  Kind of a cute visual.

I've been a bit bluesy since late last week, but that always happens to me in my third trimester.  I'm the more typical, emotional, semi-crazy pregnant lady in my last trimester.  I really hate it because what I'm upset about feels so crucial and real and yet I know it wouldn't be that big of a deal if I wasn't full of hormones and what-not.

I also finished one of the advent calendars today, but I was in such a mad rush to get it wrapped and over to the post office, I failed to get pictures.  I'll be sure to get you some of the next one.  Only two more to go!

My youngest hung out sideways too, but got himself in the right direction just in time ;-)

i'm sorry about your 'blue' period in your pregnancy, but I'm sure you are excited to have the baby when the right time comes. good luck to you on the rest of your pregnancy...

YAY! Lame office to be concerned about you being 10 min late! I mean really, I'm sure you aren't late all the time. They probably make you wait most of the time.

Mica was breech, I was low on fluid and he would NOT turn from the outside. I tried all kinds of things to get him to turn. I even laid on an ironing board upside down (one end propped up on the bed and the other against the wall on the floor). Kind of uncomfortable. Nope the boy wouldn't turn.

Crazy hormones.

You're so lucky you get to use midwives! I sometimes think I'd like to try a home birth, or at least a natural one, but because of my history, I can't.
Plus, to be honest, I don't know what labor pains feel like because Ella was born by c-section two and a half weeks before her due date.
I might be singing a different tune when I feel that pain for the first time!

I hate being late.... but you know, when you go into a Drs office or any other office... they don't care if they are the ones that are the cause of lateness. They only care if you are the one who is late. You just gave them a taste of their own medicine
