One minute I feel ready to have this baby, then the next I'm nervous. I can't believe we are down to the last five weeks. Or less. In a way I feel like I'm just 'waiting' now. The nursery is as ready as its going to get, I am holding off on art until we find out what we are having.
I know soon as I go into labor that my life will be forever changed. My first thought is I should enjoy every second of the next couple of weeks. Every bath I take alone, every quick trip to the store, every quiet evening home with Mr. A. Yet I feel like I'm in a constant state of waiting.
Waiting on that first big contraction. Waiting to become a family. I've been praying everyday for a healthy baby. I worry so much, but I keep assuring myself this is normal. I just keep trying to tell myself that its out of my hands.
On another note: I'm RH-Negitave.
I haven't mentioned it and I figured it was about time. Maybe one of you could shed some light on it for me.
Do you know what that is?
Basically either you are negative or positive. Only about 11% of 'white' women are negative. Lucky me. From what I've gathered from my reading it means if our baby is positive my blood can attack their blood. So a RhoGAM shot is needed. I don't quite understand much more than that other than the shot will arrive with our mid-wife next week and it may or may not be needed determining a blood test from the baby at birth.
If you know anyone or are RH-neg yourself I'd love to hear your take on it, as I'm still a little lost.
Other than that I'm just hanging around the house. I've been cleaning, cooking, baking, dog walking and of course waiting.
