Re: Can someone give me permission to...

I am shooting for delivery on the 11th. Here's hoping that by that day, we are BOTH either sitting in a hospital bed nursing our newest additions while daddy takes care of the screaming army at home....or already done and at home by then! But delivery on the 11th will give our little ones a cool birthday too!

I'm hoping for Oct 2nd or 3rd...really, sometime the first week in Oct would be fine with me. I'll be 38wks as of Oct 1st and I want an Oct baby for PS age cut off reasons. (I know I homeschool, but our school requires testing based on age before Sept 30. I prefer my kids to be on the older side of their grade level.) Plus, my older son is Oct 19th. So, as far from then, but still in Oct and baby fully cooked is what I want. The 11th would work too, but I don't want to go that close to my due date. Of course, we really have no choice or say in the matter.

Re: Can someone give me permission to...

I hope today is going well. We are about to have lunch and I've completed about 50% of what I set out to do today -- and I think I'm done!

I have washed 3 loads of laundry (and I have to hang it all too), done a craft (science related), bible verse and books of the bible. I think I'll bribe the babies to clean up the toys and call it a day.

Re: Can someone give me permission to...

I am 7 weeks postpartum with baby #3. As I approached my due date, I created more "school is life" things to do... We did a lot of sidewalk chalk, book reading and trips to the library, science in our back yard, etc.

We are just now getting into the swing of things, and I am 100% okay with that! Take the time you need because the truth is, when you look back on all this 20 years from now, you won't still be feeling guilty that you didn't do "enough." You'll be wishing you had sat back and enjoyed it more because it all only happens once.

Sounds like a productive day! Good job!

I didn't get anything done. I had an OB appt today (during which I found out I was spilling protein. *sigh* I was probably dehydrated since I have no other symptoms of pre-e. Still, I have to now go back on Friday. Ugh! Then, my mom was here and stayed till into the afternoon baking with the kids. So, no school today. I'm really feeling like I want to get it done though. tomorrow...we have no plans. Maybe school????

I was spilling protein for 2 weeks. I started taking double the dose of probiotics, garlic, echinacea and parsley daily for 7 days and my urine yesterday tested negative for protein. I also was fighting a pretty bad but asymptomatic infection that was spilling blood and leukocytes. Anyways, I hope you can fight it and it's not PreE.

Good luck with school in the morning.

Yes, I give you permission and think you should certainly take a break! Especially since your oldest is in first grade. If it were me, I would go to the library and load up on educational dvd's and call it a day! good luck!
