I totally felt that way at 39 weeks, too! I remember it so vividly. I can't believe we're going to get another baby in our DDC.
I feel like I haven't checked in a while. It's just been so busy because DH was out of town for a week interviewing for jobs, and it seems like being a single parent while he's gone just gets harder and harder. His trip last week garnered two follow-up interviews; both companies are in Michigan, though.
: One is in Kalamazoo, which I think would be OK, but the other is in Detroit. I actually got onto the Detroit tribe thread, and a lot of people say that living there is fine, so I guess I don't feel as mortified about it as I did initially. And if he doesn't get one of these jobs, it's not a huge deal because he's not officially out of the Navy until May 31st, so I feel like we still have some time.
Brynn's sleeping has been getting better (amazingly so), or I guess I should say, it *was* getting better until DH got home. He's totally disrupted our routine the past two nights, and even got her upset and crying and then took her out of bed after I had laid her down, which REALLY pissed me off. I am going to talk to him tonight and let him know that he cannot be in the room *at all* once I put her down. I feel like he's totally set the process back because he thinks he can "help." Arrrrghh! But anyway, like I said, she was doing so well before he came home. Two nights ago, she actually got into her bed while she was still awake, and played and talked for a few minutes before laying down on her own and falling asleep. Then, I think she woke up within an hour, so I told her it was still time for night-night, and she actually laid back down and went back to sleep (with the help of some back rubbing) that time too. Hallelujah! I'm hoping tonight we'll get back on track.
Oh, but in other good news - DH and I had our first "date" last night since Brynn's birth, and it was really nice. A good friend of ours and her 1-year old son (Brynn's buddy) came over and stayed with her while we went out, and she knows them both so well that I don't think she even really noticed that we were gone! We really enjoyed getting to eat slowly, and getting to have an actual conversation that wasn't interrupted 50 times by "GET DOWN! GET DOWN!" etc. It was fun.

Ha ha!! God is punishing you for being sneaky, Helen!!
Just kidding, but that is hilarious.
I've been thinking about zjande the past couple of days. Did she get married this past weekend? She did get pregnant last cycle, right?
Spiritmomma, thank you so much for sharing your art. It was really beautiful, and I loved the symbolism. Awesome. Are you feeling more like yourself again the past few days?
That's all I can think of to say for now.
