34 Week Update September 27, 2010

Hello.  Yes it’s me.  Your long lost blogging friend.

34 weeks, 1 day.  Wow.  I never thought we would get here.

Things are coming along….. I’ve been feeling a lot of pressure and some pain “down there”…… I tried to describe this to my hubby as “lightening vagina” and he honestly just stared at me with a pretty blank face.

I told the doc and they gave me an internal at my last appt.  Cervix is closed but the baby was/is head down (this was at my 32 week appt.) and doc said baby is lower than he usually sees at 32 weeks….. so he would like me off my feet a bit more.  To which my hubby gladly shouted “well she commutes to NYC every day” and the doc said well, I will write you a note and maybe you work from home 2 days a week.   So that being said, I’ve been doing that the last 2 weeks and it has been much better.  Still feeling the “lightening vagina” though…. Doc says its just the baby pushing on a nerve.  Damn though it can really hurt sometimes.

SO here is the other delima.  Hubby just got a new job.  It is a great job. It is a perfect job and means more money and more flexibility on hours and will allow us to use daycare instead of a nanny or an au pair. 

Training for this said job is 6 weeks, 4 of which is done at the company’s headquarters- 2 hours away.

I am due Nov 7th.  His first week away is 10/4 (m-f) ok no big deal.  Then he is home study the next 2 weeks.  Then he is gone 10/25 (m-f), 11/3-11/5 and then week of 11/8 (m-f) and 11/15 (m-f).    I mean can the timing be worse??

I cried for 2 days when I found this out.  he spoke to the company who said that have him go to the training and play it by ear…. he is only 2 hours away so once he gets word that I’m in labor, he can high tail it to the hospital and still make it with plenty of time.  However……. they said he really cannot miss more than one day of training….. not that they are being jerks, the training is really important to the job he will be doing….

Anyway, this is so so so upsetting to me.  I really need him there with me!  I see the doc on Friday so hoping he would consider inducing me on Oct 29th since he doesnt have to go back until the 3rd of Nov.  The problem with that is that its a week before my due date…. so not sure what the doc’s view on that is…

Oh boy.  say a prayer for me.
