Still 9 sleeps away from the DD here, and no real signs of labor that I can claim. Last Saturday I thought I felt a big change...had a lot of "different" contractions (deeper, crampier, more regular, etc.), but since then there's been less than nothing exciting. I do think the baby dropped that night, but s/he seems to be just as comfy in the new position as before!
I did get a TON of cleaning done today, though, so I'm feeling pretty darn good. The only things left to do are clean out the fridge, restock on groceries, get some wine (for celebrating!), aaaand then...wait. I found a couple of old fortune cookie fortunes while I was cleaning my desk today; they read "You are about to embark on a most delightful journey!" and "This coming Friday will be an exciting time for you.", which really made me giggle. Whether or not it's realistic, it's kind of fun to imagine going into labor tomorrow as a possibility, lol. And it was a super nice reminder that this WILL be a most delightful journey, regardless of how difficult and tedious it might seem now!
Anyhow. Big (((HUGS))) to everybody who's still hanging in there. I let my kids watch movies all day today so that I could actually get stuff done, take a shower, have *me* time, and even take a nap...and I don't feel nearly as guilty about it as I probably should. :P I feel rather recharged, really! Which will hopefully be good for everybody and lead to more stress-free days which will lead quickly to BABY DAY! :D
