*I have been feeling restless, irritable, and antsy all weekend. Impending labor signs? Or just life? I don't know, but I felt the need to start making a for-real-let's-get-some-things-done to do list at 5:45 this morning. I have an appointment at 10:30 this morning. We'll see what they say...
*We went to the beach yesterday. Will that be the last time before baby? I was really tired when we got home, but it was fun.
*I really would like to take a few days off of school to just get things done. I'll think about it. I guess it depends what I find out at the doctor today. It would be nice to do since school takes up around 1/2 a day (either my morning or my afternoon) and I never seem to get everything done that needs doing in one day.
*I'm so thankful for this weather! Having a baby in the spring is very nice. It's pretty outside and not too hot--even here in Texas! Our garden is looking beautiful!
*We have a new-to-us couch and I like it. It matches our other new-to-us furniture in the living room and it's comfy. But it's lower than our old couch and hard to get off of right now. Anyway, I read that relaxing on the couch (read: slumped) is a good way to have baby turned the wrong way and have back labor. I've had that with both girls and it wasn't fun. So, I borrowed my mom's exercise ball and I've been sitting on that. Wow. Found some muscles I didn't know existed and it for sure is "opening up my pelvis" as it is supposed to do because my hips have been popping and cracking like crazy since I borrowed the ball. Also it makes my back feel better. Just need to find a way to deflate and get the ball into the hospital and inflated again for labor. I asked when we toured the hospital and the nurse acted like she had never heard of such a thing. So, I asked if I could bring my own ball and she said, "sure." Shook my confidence in this hospital a bit, but it's the only place my doctor delivers so...perhaps I will educate them some?
*I really thought I would have a few things to say that were NOT related to birth, labor, or baby. Obviously not. That's how distracted I am lately. I am focused and everything, even paying a bill, is related to "getting ready." I really hope it's sooner rather than later!!!
And I'm sure my blog readers do too!!!!
