I'm probably cursing myself by posting this... but since yesterday I have been having a LOT of strong BH'x and today they have continued.. for the past few hours they feel like they are really doing something down there and are starting to get a bit sore all around.. I'm not counting my chicks before they hatch....but I dont generally have much pre-labour before the real thing.. so... maybe i'll have a baby tonight or tomorrow!

 

....or it could still be 2 weeks from now dizzy.gif

Thanks mama..its just not really something I have experienced before. I guess my body needs some toning.Im guzzling RRLT by the quart jar full, so i hope that's helping some.

 

on a positive note, I finally henna'd my hair last night and i Love it! and i finished my fancy lacy neck warmer (just needs buttons) and plan to get working on my hat as soon as my kids have their oatmeal on the table

AND im halfway through making our elderberry syrup which I was freaking out I wouldnt get any made this year... so its not all bad.

always something else to do..

and its the lantern walk tonight so please wish for un-rainy skies!..its drizzly today here in the mountains.
