I have just hit the time warp. The one where the past 8.5 months has been in hyperdrive. And now the last to weeks it is like time has stood still. In the past week there has been the question "Is this it?" and everytime the answer comes in the form of "well we’ll see in an hour from now."
No, we have not had sufficiant strength in any of the contractions. Today I did Yoga and a Hip hop workout to get things stirred up again. Nothing but hemroids are causing me any true discomfort. The hemorids themselves have caused me to put myself on bedrest. I do enjoy my two soaks aday in the tub as well. The baby has dropped though. I actually have more of my torso back. It is nice to see such a wonderful display of the breasts I have been bragging about this entire pregnancy. Too bad I have been mostly horizontal so I don’t get to show them to all my friends and family. LOL.
My MIL and sister are here to keep me sane and chase after the kids all day. We have all my room set and ready for the little baby. All the onzies you can imagine (Washed, folded, and put away in their right drawers.) Outfits for the next couple of months followed by wash cloths and baby towles, and socks.
We have had the Fish’s name picked out for so long that the only thing I can think of that is not ready is the car. It is dirty. Tomorrow morning we will have that taken care of. The two babies I have given birth to have been right on time. I should have guessed that this one would be no different and if he isn’t I am hookin myself up to some major Pitocin on Saturday.
I do love the wives tales that are suposed to help labor get going. Got any good ones? The famous one is drinking insane amounts of casteroil.
