Halfway There

Well, we're halfway through the week. It's been a good, if long week.
The training has been going well. Much better than I'd hoped. I'm glad. I've got a good group of people and even though we're going through some pretty in-depth stuff, we've managed to keep the tone light and the pace good. I do like most of these people. I'm just glad that other person I'd held training for from this company before is no longer there. She was just mean and out for blood. I can really do without that.
Two of the people used to be field service people here. They're good guys and friendly. It is good to see them again. They seem to be doing well and enjoying "the dark side".
I wrap up with these guys tomorrow. Actually, if all goes well, I won't be doing much training at all. I've got a doctor's appointment in the morning, but that's OK because one of the other guys will be doing hardware type training all morning. It should be good. Then in the afternoon one of the engineer types will be doing some slightly different hardware training for a bit. Then I get to wrap it all up and send everyone home.
I'll be glad for that. As enjoyable as this is, I'm beat.
Like I said, one more doctor's appointment tomorrow. If there's still no progress we'll be talking about what to do if/when I go beyond 40 weeks. (eek! less than 10 days according to the ticker!) I'd like to not talk induction before the 10th, but I'm not sure really care. I don't really want to schedule a C if we don't have to. I mean, there's a good possibility I'll end up with one, but if I don't have to, I don't want to. (As much as the whole thought of labor/delivery scares me... more from the "what have I gotten myself into" sense than anything...) I don't know, there's just something about picking your baby's birthday that seems a little wrong. I mean, I'm still not sure how I feel about finding out about the baby's gender beforehand, even though we did. There is just something greedy or selfish or something about "planning" the day of birth. Oh well, we'll see what the doctor has to say tomorrow. For all I know, things have started to change and I may actually deliver at the end of next week without any help. Who knows? Not I.
Well, I'd better wrap up a few more training issues this evening before I head out to pick up Gak. Random thought: I just realized I didn't upload the picture of the shirts Jon sent me. I'll try and do that tonight.
Peace to all and may your weeks be good.

The dr. shouldn't be talking about induction or C-section until you hit 41 weeks or more, unless there are complications. At 39 weeks my dr talked about induction and I said I wanted to wait... they can get the date wrong you know :)

Monkeybaby was born 4 days after her due date, I know some babies that were borna "week late".


ps I started having contractions a whole month before she was born, they would last up to 3 hours but be highly irregular --painful, but according to the drs normal. Apparently a lot of painful stuff is normal during pregnancy

Yeah, I'm pretty sure the date is wrong, I really think I'm due around the 10th.
Besides, I still haven't had any contractions or anything... but Mom said she never did either...
We'll see what the doc says in an hour or two.
