Everyone does their Christmas gatherings different for a number of reasons. It has changed for us over the years. Sometimes we are at families homes on Christmas Day other times they are in our home. Some years we have just swapped gifts and gone out and enjoyed a holiday-themed outing. No matter how you do it, the importance is the presence of being together. This year we had my husband’s family over at our place on Christmas Eve. My family is split up and spread out far from us (North Carolina, etc) so we often don’t get to spend the holidays together but we still face time, call, and chat thanks to the internet.
Yesterday was my 38 week prenatal check up . According to my Doctor, I’m measuring at 39 weeks and things are progressing quickly. I’m 3.5cm dilated already and pretty much on labor alert! I’ve been feeling very off all week. The BH contractions have been all over the place and getting comfortable at all is proving quite difficult. I’m trying to keep myself occupied with other tasks without overdoing it. But lately with the already lack of sleep and low iron, it’s hard to even make complete thoughts and sentences! She also is so low that it feels like she’s going to drop completely out when I walk around.
