I'm not listening!!!! I keep purposefully not thinking about how far along I'll be at my next appt - it's suddenly feeling so close!

DH said that today actually - he said it seemed like February we had so much time, but now that it's March 1st it's so close. I laughed and told him I started feeling that way a couple weeks ago - hence why I've been so stressed about the room stuff and whatnot he needs to do!

it seems wrong to just take them until the test. Like you're being sneaky or something.

But that's the thing - if you can change from + to -, or - to + over a few days, without doing/changing anything at all... then anytime you have a - result you could actually be + when baby is born.
It's just silly that they bother with the testing. Either they should come up with a rapid test that could be done when labor starts, or they should treat everyone as if positive (although that would be refused/declined by many mamas).

all is well with them both.

My grandmother just had surgery and has been in the hospital for over a week. The good thing is is that it is the same hospital and they are going to take her up to see the baby tomorrow.
Congrats Auntie! I'm so glad they're going to help your grandma see the baby!

AFM: DH just got orders today to go on a remote 1yr deployment in October. I really need a banana split. I didn't know that was something I considered a comfort food.. but that's what I really want, so I guess it must be. Tomorrow I think we will go get some ice cream.
Poor mama and baby.

I'm sorry about the deployment news. That stinks. I never can imagine being away from DH like that.
Hope you get your ice cream tomorrow. You deserve it!

Likely they'll still plan to do it, just because that's how they do things. But I would decline, because of your circumstances - it's definitely going to be a c-sec, which removes any risk of baby contracting GBS regardless of your status, and you're also going to be on antibiotics regardless of your status because of the surgery - just no point in doing it at all.

AFM: The kids' skating Ice Show went really well! There were a lot of parents and grandparents there watching, which is really nice for the kids
Now we're all looking forward to a relaxing, do nothing, day at home tomorrow!
