Well, I went to the doctor today for my non-stress test. Greg came along just in case, because at my last appointment my doctor had said we could check and see how things are and maybe speed the process up. Unfortunately, it appears that my body is not ready though, so I was bummed about that. *sigh* I suppose I only have 11 more days to go before I am officially due, but I was really hoping to get this labor thing over with. At the same time, thinking about being in labor is quite daunting and frightening, so I was relieved at the same time. Even though I know that it is inevitable that I will need to go through it eventually, and soon!
Last night when I was still thinking that perhaps today would be the day, I was totally stressing. My house is not “ready” in that it is a bit messy since I haven’t had the energy to keep up on the housework like I should. Poor Greg has to put up with me when I have these stress fits. He finally made me stop cleaning and crying and convinced me to relax and watch a movie instead. He also played with my hair and rubbed my head, which always calms me down. My mom also offered today that she will help me put things in order when she comes down to help, and for that I am also very grateful.
