I cannot believe that I’m due this week. Wednesday. 2 days away. WOW. On the one hand it seems like yesterday that we found out that we were pregnant, on the other it seems like we’ve been waiting and getting ready for her arrival forever. Either way, I’m definitely ready to be a mommy and to hold my baby!
This week hasn’t brought too many real changes in how I feel physically. Like last week, I feel huge and uncomfortable. Sitting, standing, and laying down all hurt after about 2 minutes and I have to move (somehow I’ve been able to sleep well at night though-thank God!) In the past few days I’ve had some painful contractions here and there, nothing timeable, but definitely what I’d describe as “strong cramping”. Maybe this means something good!
Kev and I have an appt tomorrow morning. I’m pretty nervous about it because I desperately want them to tell me that I’m dilated quite a bit and should be having this baby very soon. If not, then I could be waiting another week more. And that, my friends, would not be fun. I know, I know, she’ll come when she’s ready. But come on already!
I’m happy to see the sun shining these past few days, but it is still FREEZING!!! Saturday wasn’t too too bad; Kev and I went for a walk on the path. We hadn’t been on a walk together probably since the fall so it was really fun to do that with him. Going on walks together is something we’ve always enjoyed and it’s so frustrating to not be able to do it because of the weather (yet another reason to move to warmer temperatures in the future!)
Here’s a convo I had with Kev yesterday:
Kevin: Will Sophie be able to sit up by the end of the summer?
Me: She should. Why?
Kevin: We can take her to Lake Michigan!!!
Ohh I can’t wait for that day!
We had such a relaxing weekend. Obviously we didn’t have any plans, not knowing if we would have had the baby or what, so it was nice to just hang out around the house together. Friday afternoon I went to the library before picking Kevin up from work. We used the Applebee’s gift card Friday night (yummy!) and went to Bible study in Brighton. Saturday and Sunday we just hung out at the house. I’ve taken up playing “Monopoly Here And Now” on Kev’s ipod, and I finally won on my own! YES. I also finished an “evil” samurai-sudoku, and started reading “The Language of God” that I got from the library. Ohh, and I broke out the old Nintendo too. Kev’s too scared to play Dr. Mario with me (he gets frustrated by the “pause” that happens when I get rid of a “virus” and thinks the game is unfair on 2 player…chicken…).
This is long and newsy-yet not newsy because nothing has really happened so I think I’ll spare you all the boredom and end here. This morning I’m off to Meijer and I also need to clean up around here a bit because a bunch of realtors are coming over tomorrow to look at the house. Please pray that this house sells, and that Sophie comes very soon!
