Some Bullets for Your Monday

*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!!!!


Brenda, who used to talk about many topics


  1. Talk baby all you want, my friend! I love it!! :)

  2. When you're pregnant and this close, you get to talk about it all you want!!!

  3. I love baby talk.I have to admit it does make me a little jealous though.I would love to be expecting again.I am praying all goes well for you.LucyT

  4. I agree, I love baby talk. Do you have to deflate the ball to get it into the hospital? I always just toted mine right in! I love sitting on it during my last trimester... but during labor I never sat on it! I definitely loved having it to lean over while hubby rubbed my back, though! I am praying for you!!

  5. I don't think it would even fit in the car! :)


I don't get to talk to a lot of actual grown-ups during the day, so your comments make me really happy! :)
