I seem to have entered dangerous territory... cankle territory.
I was doing so well cankle free. I had hot feet yes... but delighted in my minor swelling and visible bones... no such luck anymore. Ankle bones... what are those?
At this point we are thinking any day could be "go-time". I've been putting off actually packing my hospital bag for a long time now thinking that if I actually pack I will be too ready if that makes any sense. I am excited for them to arrive but perhaps not quite ready to go into labour. Tomorrow will be packing day .. I promise.
On Friday night we spent 2 hours meeting with our doula(s)... we have a primary but a backup since our doula will be out of town on our actual due date (if we actually make it to August 3rd). Those 2 hours were amazing. We learned so much and I left feeling like a weight had been lifted off of me and that I really could have the birth experience that I crave (yes, yes, I know that things can happen but I now have a realistic picture of what it could look like if things do go in our favour). I will share more about what we learned in a post this week. The rest of the weekend was spent at restaurants, with friends and in a pool. It was bliss.
