Man, I love that your idea of sleeping in is till ten a.m. That's how it starts for me before I take two more naps during the day. That's my problem. I love sleeping. I have no idea how i'm gonna juggle a baby and figuring getting back to school or work and keeping my sanity. I hope I can get my butt in gear and lose weight and shape up.

lol Well with my first pregnancy I would literally sleep for about 18 hours out of the day. I don't have time to sleep these days working 40 hours a week, plus with me working it makes me so used to waking up so early, so even on my days off I'm up at 8am at the latest. Once you're not pregnant anymore, you won't be so tired. And you won't really have a choice. :lol:

lol yeah that's what i'm hoping will happen. She'll be a good motivator as long as I can keep my wits about me. I think its all fate though. My aunt and little cousin is coming down from Canada at the end of June so i'll have their support with the baby initially for a month and a half or so. I could really use that extra help since my mom is always working 12 hour days and has no energy when she gets home. She's the one that I was practically having this baby for because she keeps dreaming about grandkids and always nudges me and the hubs. I like the word my australian friend uses to phrase it "She's all clucky."



But yeah can't wait to not be pregnant and have my LO in my arms. I keep daydreaming about holding her and kissing the hell out of her. :arrow::P:P

It's 353pm n still contracting every 4-5 mins. Hubby wasn't gonna go to work I had to pretty much shove him out the door. They're so short tnite they've called everyone in so no one to cover his position at all. But I've been sleeping since noon. ill say the nip stimulation caused all this bc I felt fine before it. Same boat- w dd1 I was sah while hubby worked a few ft away so all I did was sleep-10pm-6pm. Dd1 was only 1 turning 2 w dd2 so we took lots of naps. Same w this lots of naps. I'm picturing the two geese from the aristocats waddling lol the worse is the looks I get at a store. I push a cart to help me walk but ppl actually crane their head back to get a good look. I hate that. And crossing pedestrian walkways w cars waiting.... Ugh. Hubby tries to drag me so I cross faster but I let go of his hand and waddle alone sometimes barely moving bc Aaron just hit my cervix or dropped like a rock

Yeah I hate pedestrian crosswalks.. I had to go to my niece's award night and we hard to park across the street so when I was walking I thought "dude.. i'm not gonna make it!!!"



It was horrible. And even when my sister in law had saved a seat for me, I was being chased down the aisle by a woman who was like "EXCUSE ME, you can't SIT HERE! EXCUSEEE ME.." and just kept hounding me the entire frantic walk to my seat because her family got up and vacated the row and she was still saving their seats. I was about to turn and slap the shit out of her.



So with the contractions are you gonna be heading out soon? O_O

I dread parking lots now bc it's such a walk! Hubby drops me at the front. I'd have walked even slower for that rude woman. Oh I've noticed wait staff stare n "is this booth ok or do we need a table?" They try to use our kids as the reason they ask, being all polite, but I know they're looking at my belly n judging if ill fit. So far so good. Ehhh... No. I can still walk n talk during them so my best assumption is they're not strong enough. Don't get me wrong baby balls up so tight n I can't breathe for a few mins during, but no "pain" just gotta adjust my breathing. I'm afraid to call/go there, find out yes I'm having real contractions that could even measure big/intense on the monitors, but not dilate. Then they'd have to stop my labor n send me home :( I'd have wasted gas, hubby's work, a babysitter?, and got prodded n poked for no reason.

Yeah, the hubs wanted to drop me off in front but parking was chaos and I wouldn't have been able to hop out fast enough lol.. but I told him that I don't think I can do anymore grad events and award ceremonies.. it's too much walking and standing and I'm in way too much pain to be in the midst of all that since we all know how long it takes.



At least you don't have too much pain and you have it all worked out. Nothing worse than being sent home, that's for sure.. But man if I were you i'd be so antsy! I'm already feeling stressed out *for* you. lol..



I can't wait for her to be here, but like I keep saying.. she can only come when she's good and ready and healthy or else i'm gonna be a mess.

the waddle is most definitely in full effect. not to mention i have had the runs for over a week now. that doesn't make walking pleasant either. haha

Yeah having the runny bunnies all the time sucks. I can't believe we have to go through all this for like a month before we go into labor and really get to work. No fair, I tells ya.

Me too! All that preterm labor was for nadda now it seems. Maybe mil will hush bout the risks if we had another after this. I was secretly hoping for may bc the girls are 2009, 2011, and now 2013, jan, march, and was hoping for may. I'm hoping like hell I'm wrong but I got a hunch he comes on June 8/9 n I'm prolly gonna rip my hair out :( they won't talk induction until June 13th so it's kinda possible.
