Friday Night Leftovers - 39 weeks edition

* I went to the MD Wednesday and demanded P come with me. Which is good since we had some discussions. If I don't go into labor by May 14th, a C-section is scheduled for that morning. My regular OB is not available that day, but we didn't want to be #4 on May 17th, so we took that slot. If I do go into labor prior to this, I will be attempting a VBAC. Send vibes my way please. * My skin is so incredibly itchy. Everywhere. It keeps me up at night. Weird places like my ankles and wrists itch too. Ugh. Going to lather up with Cetaphil tonight. Feels like my skin is on fire. * Had some nausea today and felt crummy. Couldn't nap during the day, so went through a bunch of baby stuff and now have five additional bags of V's stuff for Goodwill and one large bin for the resale shop. She can be hard on staining clothes. * My husband has been working a lot again. 9:00 pm working. With a sick, pregnant wife, Ugh. When he is home he does bath and stories. Miss that when he isn't here. So does V. Him too of course. * Been spending lots of time on Zillow looking at bigger houses. Wow. Some nice places out there. Some have a pool. I've always wanted a pool. Has anyone has/have a pool? Wondering how the maintenance and all that was. For more Friday Night Leftovers:

I had some nausea today and yesterday. I spent a good part of K's birth puking...hoping that I don't go through that again.

Haven't even begun to discuss induction with my OB or Midwife yet. That is not my ideal route.

I had some serious itchy skin during pregnancy. So weird.

We have an above ground pool. It is TON of work, and expensive, too. One year we had to replace the heater, $2k there, this year we needed to put in a new filter system and a new liner, another $2k, plus you have to either clean it every week or hire someone to do it, vacuum out the sides and bottom, and put in all the chemicals in the correct doses. Opening it and closing it every year is a hassle. Plus we pay more house insurance because it is such a liability, even with the fencing. We didn't open it the last 2 years but are this year. When AUdrey was younger, it was hard because there is no shallow end and I had to hold her all the time, now she is tall enough to have her head above water, but she is a tall kid. So I wouldn't really recommend it, especially if you wouldn't get a lot of use out of it.
