Yes, I'm finally
In the hospital, in labor. Waiting for the last 2cm. :)
There are so many annoying new things about being pregnant but overdue. I drool a lot now. Like anytime I fall asleep. I contract all night long, in ten minute increments. I wake up, cramp, breathe, adjust, reposition, and fall back asleep for ten more minutes. Rinse and repeat. I’m running out of places to drool. Arghhhh. I have a whole bunch more stretch marks. I’d be trying to...
I love sarcastic writing. I have never been that good at it, or at sarcasm itself, because my mother would knock my face off if I ever spoke to her like that. Since she became one of my besties while growing up, after my parents moved my hormone-ridden self into the boonies at the ripe ol’ age of 15, she’s the one I spent a whole lot of my free time with. Tomorrow morning I have a...
My laptop is so incredibly hot right now. I just downloaded and watched Gossip Girl and it like burns my hand to touch it. I need a new one. I seen a cute netbook for a decent price… kinda wanting something small and easy to tote, but don’t really want a tablet. Little one is moving all over the place tonight after my glass of OJ. I have such a sweet tooth right now, I wish I had...
41 weeks... #foreverpregnant
Not in the best mood today. I feel kind of blue, emotionally. I felt like I was ready to have my baby and even endured many, many hours of painful contractions. For what? To be sitting at home still pregnant. So I am a little upset. I’m still having them, they’re just incredibly mild. I am comparing them to the intense ones that the cervadil caused all night last night. I’m...
Last night at home without my baby?
Up late… can’t sleep. Too much on my mind. Baby has hiccups. Nothing is on tv. Except something I’d never turn on downstairs. I’m not downstairs, I’m upstairs, laying in the guest bed with Robbie. This is not abnormal to stay up this late. It’s rather usual really. It’s just that I feel like maybe I should take a nap. Sleep. Get rest. Tonight is going...
40 weeks, 6 days!
That’s insane to me, who thought this entire time I would have my baby early or at the very least, on time. Now I am sitting here at 2am trying to figure out if I’m having contractions or a really active, engaged baby… even though nothing feels that intense, it still feels somewhat like what I think they will feel like. Like a squeeze… a harsh squeeze. I asked to be...
News! I scheduled an induction for Saturday night. She will probably get here Sunday morning! Will keep you all posted. :)
Still no news on baby’s arrival.
I’m trying to think what I want to do with myself and my time. I have a lot of it right now. I need to make sure the house is “spic & span”… whatever that means. My dad and his girlfriend are coming here to stay tomorrow from Florida. I just made peanut butter cookies and they’re delicioso. My recipe: 1/2 cup peanut butter 1/2 cup sugar 1/2 tsp vanilla...
It's Here! My Due Date, That Is
I’m still pregnant as can be and not for seeing any baby today. I made fajitas for everyone tonight, steam cleaned my couches, snacked on baked mushrooms with cheese and twiddled my thumbs at the TV. My feet are finally normal sized again. I have an appointment with my midwife on Monday. Maybe an induction is in order. We shall see.
Anonymous asked: Aubrey, Isabella, Miranda, and Mia are super cute! Good luck deciding :)
We're getting down to the wire here, Mr.
I took the baby name generator quiz. Here’s what it suggested I name my girl: Aubrey Isabella Addison Kate Sienna Miranda Poppy Mia Hadley Camryn I think all of those are pretty and adorable, except maybe Hadley (no offense!) but the only one I even remotely have considered up until this point is the first one, Aubrey. I do like that name!! You know what’s funnier? R...
2 DAYS OMGSDF@!
Pay no attention to my retarded title. I am not that crazy about that right now. Here’s why. At 3am, I woke up with HEARTBURN from hell. After sleeping for two hours, that’s kind of like UH?? Where did that come from? Then, I start cramping! The baby was moving around like I just drank a quad latte. I was so confused, and scared. I got up to try to walk it off, since they say that if...
miraclebelievingmama-deactivate asked: I have two cats and I can not for the life of me keep them away from my daughters things unless I have the door to her bedroom shut. Every time I am in there folding clothes or whatever, they lay on the clothes. In the crib, in the car seat. Any where that is new to them they lay in/on it. I think right now they do it because they are curious as to what all this new stuff is and who it is for...
Whoa… I can’t believe I only have 3 days until my EDD. I think I’m going to go over by a week. I think she’s so happy in my belly, she’s just gonna hang out. It doesn’t feel like I am going to go into labor anytime soon, unless I have some kind of surprise labor. Six thank you letter summaries down (I still need to write the letters on the cards and address...
Question for the mamas! Do you have cats? How do you keep your cats away from your baby gear? I have to keep my car seat, bouncer, and bassinet in my closet right now to keep them away from it. What am I supposed to do after my LO arrives?
I admit that I am getting nervous. I am actually having really mild contractions tonight. I’ve been distracting the heck out of myself, between cleaning, organizing, writing, vlogging, and packing. I think my baby/hospital bag is almost ready! R says he will pack his own bag… great, I guess? One less stressful thing? I’m worried he won’t pack the right items so I left a...
tumblrbot asked: WHERE WOULD YOU MOST LIKE TO VISIT ON YOUR PLANET?
New site coming
I’m working on a domain, with a blog. I have been writing there a lot. I’ve been doing both. I plan to keep up on both. I don’t know how well that’s going to work, we’ll see.
Our baby shower is behind us, and all of our gifts are put away until they’re needed. I just spent the morning putting together the bassinet. It’s beautiful! I can’t describe how lovely it is to have one. Little one is already spoiled and she hasn’t even made it out into the world yet. I’ll post photos soon. I’m tempted to decorate a corner of our bedroom...
Oh my goodness. I need to write to get this all out. I started my day at 11am, and I seriously should have gotten up earlier. It took me three freakin’ hours to get ready for my baby shower and that’s just not okay! I ended up being “late” (I was there after the first guest) and I didn’t love the way I ended up looking, because my eyeliner was entirely too dark. Do...
How can I put this lightly..? I really don’t think there is a way. MY BOOBS HURT.
It’s funny to me, sitting here just bitching out loud about everything I can, that R is mad at me for being so ungrateful and annoyed. I know he’s right. I need to relax and just accept the things that happen, because I can’t change the past. I woke up about an hour ago. I was in a good mood, relaxed, and feeling like I was going to be quiet. I ran to get us lunch at Quiznos. I...
I spent a lot of time re-organizing the bedroom today. It was a long day, to say the least. It all started because this little nook pictured below became available. I posted my ball python on Craigslist in an attempt to re-home him before the baby gets here, and I got three replies within hours of posting it. Why am I randomly telling you that? Because that was his nook. He stayed in our...
