We all are getting really close, it's boggling, isn't it?
I had my 34 week appointment on Saturday and my MW put me on bedrest for high blood pressure. Eep. Of course, it's not easy STAYING on bedrest with a very wiley 2 year old. (Could that have anything to do with my high blood pressure? I ask as I waddle out to the living room to find her digging up all of my vegetable starts. Oy!) So, I am trying just to be nice and peaceful and BREATHE to the best of my ability while I try not to fret about all the washing/stitching/bag packing that needs done in the next few weeks. I'm cleared to deliver after the 21st, and I am just keeping sticky baby vibes in my mind til then.
My very sweet but lousy-at-keeping-secrets hub let it slip that there's "This, uh, barbecue that, uh, we REALLY need to be at this Sunday, you know, uh, just a family gathering, uh, yeah." So, I get the impression that some sort of baby-oriented celebration is coming down the pike for us, which is kind of funny. Poor guy. He felt bad, and kept saying, "I didn't reveal ANYTHING! It's a BBQ!" and blushing and fidgeting. So, what do I do? Still act surprised? Admit that I had a, uh, hint or two? Hee.
He's got five very kind little sisters who I imagine are behind this - It makes me feel a little warm and fuzzy to be thought of like that though - we lived 2000 miles away for our DDs birth and although he & I have been together for 6 years, we just moved out here near his family and I feel like the VERY new member of the pack. His sisters are all so cute and blond and trendy, and here I am, this big hippie mama marrying up their only brother. Heh. It's taking some doing to feel settled in the environment, I assure you, but it IS nice to know that they're at least thinking of me out here all isolated from anything that's familiar to me.
So, yes, I'm rambly, but, thinking of all you mamas as we get closer. I'm half expecting to see a Birth post from someone every time I log in! It's really on it's way, huh?
