Sorry for being so grouchy in my last post
: I seriously thought I was gonna lose my mind!
First of all... big
s to the twin mamas! I can't even imagine how much more uncomfortable you must be. You ladies take it easy, you hear me!?
LHB-Thats exactly what happens to me when I walk around, I start getting ctx, constant cramping and feel like the baby is trying to push through my cervix. I guess we should both rest more until we are ok for our homebirths!
nighten- I'd try the bitter apple, but I'd have to hose down my whole house at this point
You never know what she is going to chew on next and we can never catch her in the act
: The cat is acting MUCH better after having some malt and some aloe juice for kitties from the HFS. Thanks for the advice though!
I had a really nice day yesterday, went to a friend's house for big pancake/potluck breakfast with 4 other families (a total of 6 families with us and the hosts- so TONS of kids). I think everyone had an awesome time, and I know I really didn't want to leave because I was having such a good time I forgot how much my pelvis hurts. I came home and picked up my house a little, then just sat around and did pretty much nothing...not what I wanted to do...just what I felt like I could do. I had an awful migraine last night (probably because I'm getting anxious about the baby) so I ended up going to bed at like 7:30, but then still slept in until 8am with dd this am
: I'm drinking a caffienated chai tea right now hoping that will keep me from getting that headache again. I woke up in the middle of the night and just laid in bed thinking of all the things I could work on today around the house since DH is gone to a swap meet all day
I forgot to factor in the pain and exhaustion when I thought about all those nifty ideas
I feel okay right now, just like I did when I first woke up yesterday but after walking around even just my house I feel awful. I've decided I'm not having the baby on Tuesday like I had planned on after all. My friend said she is planning 'something' (won't tell me what!) for Wednesday evening so I have to wait until after then to have this little guy. She completely screwed up my birthing plans
but I'm excited to see what she's up to
So I guess I'm have the baby on Thursday instead...yeah I think that works okay for everyone's schedules
I'm trying to finish up the baby's newborn wool covers (knitting them that is) and then getting all his wool stash lanolized today. Then I'm going to go to Target to pick up a portable CD player to use for while I'm in labor (check out a cd called "On a Starry Night" at amazon.com if you are still looking for laboring music
) and a new lampshade for in our living room since dd decide to throw a toy car at one yesterday and break it
: Maybe I might freeze some enchiladas for pp if I feel up to it this afternoon....or maybe I'll just do nothing all day instead!
