Still pregnant. Boring OB appointment today (which is a good thing). I declined a cervical check because I didn't feel like it. My group B strep test was negative. I'm at 37w3d and so far it seems like Tiebreaker is content to stay where s/he is for now. That's kind of a good thing, as I still have quite a bit at work that I'd like to accomplish before I go on leave, but at the same time I'm anxious to meet this baby.
I'm now working from home full-time until labor starts, hallelujah. Not having to commute 90 miles per day (round trip) has helped a lot.
I'm happy to report that the doula drama is over. After the last doula's no-show, we set up interviews with two other doulas in the area. The first interview went extremely well, but we didn't want to officially hire her until we'd met the other doula and given her a chance to knock our socks off. Well, other doula ended up cancelling due to illness (she sent me an e-mail the night before, so it wasn't a last-minute thing) and we decided that was a sign that we should just go ahead and hire the one doula who had actually shown up. :P
Since then, we've paid our deposit and had our initial prenatal visit (and she proved to be very punctual!). Collin and I like her tremendously and we are both very happy she'll be a part of our labor and birth experience.
Here's her website if you know if anyone in the northwest Phoenix area looking for a doula!
We got Elanor & William's school pictures back the other day:
Pretty darn cute, if I do say so myself.
And here's one of me.
Congratulations Kara and family! Baby Samuel is precious!!! (I don't have a pregnancy buddy any more, *sniff*.)
