12 Days to go....

You should NEVER have your first child three weeks early! Then, with your second, have contractions for 2 weeks, then stop with 2-3 weeks left to go before your due date. Following my little bought of contractions at the 34-35 week mark, I rested as directed, then everything just stopped. I've been feeling pretty well actually the last couple weeks, until 2 days but we'll get to that.

So, I'm now OVER 38 weeks pregnant, that equals 9 1/2 months if you do the math. She can really come at any time. I won't be mad! But really, like I said, I felt pretty good until 2 days ago when in my nesting phase I decided to forgo the offer by my dear husband to clean the shower for me and do it myself. I scrubbed and scrubbed, and have not been able to stand up straight ever since! I have a kink in my back that is brutal! I've been babying it all I can. Icy Hot and Tylenol, rest. It feels better once I get moving around a bit but locks up as soon as I sit or lay down. Sleeping hasn't happened. I get so stiff and sore in bed I can't even move without yelping. The three day Memorial Day weekend has helped, each day is better. I keep saying, I'm nervous about going into labor like this, but more nervous about going into work tomorrow! I at least get drugs if I go into labor!!

I do plan on working until she comes or my due date...which is 12 days away...I'm scheduled this week and the following then done. They've been great accommodating me there. With my type of work, there are clearly limits in my condition and they've been great about it!

Ben is doing amazing! He's growing up every day! We've enjoyed quiet family time this weekend. It was cold and raining until today when it's hot and humid outside! So, we got outside this morning before it got too hot outside. It was nice!

He continually tries to "feed" his baby sister which consists of either shoving food in my mouth or onto my belly! It's so precious. He also has A LOT of energy! I LOVE nap time! He still crashes out for a good 2 hours in the afternoon. Now, I don't know if it's that he has more energy, or that I just can't keep up, but I love it when Brian gets home. I'm also anxious to have this baby so that we'll have visitors that can help entertain Ben a bit here and there! Yes, basically I just want to have her for all my own selfish reasons!

I just CAN'T WAIT!!!!
