I couldn't fall asleep for anything last night, despite being thoroughly exhausted. finally got to sleep at 12:30 (and 10pm is my usual bedtime these days), had a dream that I was in labor, and was trying to push the baby out, but somebody told me my bladder was full, so I had to pee before the baby would come out. Yeah. Guess who woke with WET PANTIES?! ugh. Thankfully, not a lot. Just enough to necessitate a panty change, not a sheet change, thank god. This was at 2:30. Was up for the day at 5:30.
I am both thoroughly sick of being huge at this point, with discomfort from cervix to solar plexis, and freaked that I don't feel quite ready for the baby yet. Mostly because dh hasn't completed even half of HIS to do list which was supposed to be done by 8/15.
I'm also in a fit because I had completely planned for the birth tub to go out on the deck, but it's been so rainy here and cool (last night in the mid-50's) that I'm afraid if I do set it up out there, we'll need to move the darn thing while I'm in labor.
Also, Belle's 4th is this Sunday, and I have favor bags to fill, prezzies to wrap, and do not want to give birth before her birthday, but school starts on the 31st and I REALLY wanted a few days of having the kids home with the new baby.
So, please, ladies, send me birth vibes between the 23rd and 29th! But it's such a short window of "good time" for the birth.
usually quite calm and together but NOT TODAY!
