Just checking in to say all's well!
I really am sorry for disappearing. I just can't make myself sit down and write in a coherent fashion, and whenever I try I seem to have computer problems that make me give up before I can even begin.
But Champ is doing great. I'm 38 weeks pregnant, which is full term, so she could pretty much come any day now. There's still a lot to do, but the important stuff is done.
Tonight, I had sit-downs with both my birth doula and my post-partum doula. They're both lovely, smart, caring women, so I know I'm in good hands. And I see my midwife tomorrow morning-- we have weekly appointments now.
My ankles are starting to swell more, and my fingers get puffy when I'm hot. It's harder to sleep. I pretty much have to pee constantly. And I definitely have more frequent Braxton Hicks contractions.
But I'm not expecting Champ for at least a week.
It's so strange to think she'll be here, out in the world, one day soon.
I just hope she waits long enough for me to finish the blanket I've been knitting for her.
Because once she's here, somehow I don't think knitting will be my priority!
