So glad the evening got somewhat better! Played go fish with the big boys with these little teeny cards DS2 got in a birthday goodie bag while DS3 browsed pics on my iPhone.
It was really quite nice, listening to the storms outside and playing cards with them.
Took DS3 to lay down after that, fell asleep with him, and so ended up sending DH and the big boys off to our weekly home group gathering without us. DS3 and I got to spend some time snuggling, talking about when the baby comes, and watching some birth videos. When they DID come home, the boys all ended up getting pretty wild, but somewhere in there DH and I had time to sit and talk about some things, like when to meet the birth photographer we're hiring, birth expectations, home projects, etc. All in all, not too bad.
Bobbi, so sorry you're still hurting.
Glad school went well, though!
mzminty, are you a nurse? I know I couldn't cope with being a nurse in a hospital.
I'm so sorry you had a rough day yesterday!
Kay, I have been thinking of checking just out of curiosity, too. I'm just a wee bit hopeful that things will progress early and smoothly so I have a quicker labor this time. I can dream, right?
kitty, did laying down and raising your feet help? Are you getting lots of fluids and all that good stuff? I hope you feel better!
I am SO ready to start really nesting! I have a cart full of stuff at Amazon, another registry done at Mom's Milk Boutique ('cause they seemed to have the widest variety of what I want to try diaper-wise), and a few other windows open with things I want/need to get. We finally got our refund from the new house so we actually CAN do some of these things!
I just need to not go do it ALL at once.
I am highly doubtful that anyone else will be doing anything for us, though, so it's tempting to just place lots of orders and get what I want and enjoy it all.
Still, spacing it out a bit is probably worthwhile.
After all, I have a minimum of 2 months left to get packages over!
BUT, we have to get the bathroom redone first. I need to get on with that tomorrow (should've started a few weeks ago with getting quotes!). When you've waited YEARS for something it's hard to imagine it might *actually* happen. But I'm very hopeful that it will!
And I'm sitting here in the middle of the night with almost no food in the house craving everything under the sun.
And I ate so much for dinner that I was feeling rather gorged! I suppose it's the vex of a stomach that's getting nicely squished, eh? Must. find. food.
