My due date is not til Sept 12.
I'm obsessed with numbers and have been dreaming of a Sept 14th baby or the 13th (my dad's ...and the 13th is lucky in my family).
Or a 9-9-09. But really I didn't love that one. Maybe too close to 6s?
Right now I have Luke on the 14th, Baylie on the 4th and Darby on the 24th...so I was thinking a number with a 4 in it....maybe 4th baby on the 14th? yes I have control issues. I like to plan.
But babies don't like plans. I think they like to sabotage them sometimes. And I asked my lovely doctor what the crystal ball said and he didn't have one. "But if you were a betting man..." Nope, nothing out of him, but I won't make it to my due date. Well, duh.
But I'm feeling like she is coming tomorrow in the way I feel. Okay, so not tomorrow, but like soon.
I have not ever got this much action this early. Like take my breath away ouch...but from weird and unusual places I have not been affected before. But I don't feel like I've had steady contractions ever and I swear I know what one feels like.... Or not cause then there is back labor and all that fun confusing stuff.
But I'm feeling cruddy and crappy and shooting things up legs and sharp pains. Having to stop and rest while I shop at Walmart. No fun.
So now I'm thinking I'll be lucky to get into Sept and the doctor would agree.
I've never had to purposefully make myself be a lazy bum so that a baby would cook a little longer. I don't like feeling like a lazy bum...Not when sleep is not my friend at the moment and I still have lots to do. My kids might even start getting sick of TV....and the backyard...my most laziest places.
Usually by the time I feel like this its a week before and its a green lite. I feel if I resumed my normal lifestyle (ie: not on the couch all the time and always grabbing for a chair) then she could be here next week.
But here are my concerns....My mom needs to be here.
When should she come?
Don't want to waste her time coming too early, but she has seen all my babies born and we don't want her missing one if we can.
(Claire and all you Hornsby girl's your moms see all your babies too, just from the other side, I know they are watching...probably kiss them bye)
The second thing is that I have smaller babies and really want little Paisley as plump and healthy as can be. Baylie was 9 days early and was 6 lbs 14 oz, Luke 7 lb 6 oz and Darby 7 lb 10 oz basically on their due date.
Yes I worry too much.
Yes pregnant women are a bit loopy.
Yes you probably feel sorry for Jason...but as I like to remind him, it could be worse :)
No I have not vacuumed my floor in ages or mopped ...Misty you would be disgusted....
Because we are trying to keep it together and I think the vacuum will do me in. Really it will. I can barely just unplug the clog toilet from today and wash all the panties Baylie peed in...twice...once while standing in the dishwasher....which is another story.
No, it probably wasn't a good idea to paint that room the other day, but that day I was doing okay and Carpe Diem people!
Strange thing is that I'm not swollen yet. And I get really swollen. Because its too soon really for me to get this much action and not be swollen and still have weeks to go! Ahhh!!!!
But I did locate some bottles. Haven't washed them, but found the box.
I bought some pacifiers.
My friend mailed me the cutest handmade blanket. And my other cute friends got her a Bebe seat that I've been trying to borrow from everyone with no luck.
Clothes are in the drawer. No diapers or formula yet but those are easy.
This is too much information really. Because what will happen will happen. Right? And we are still praying for healthy over here.
My last request is will someone please invent a Hershey's candy bar with spinach puree in it? One that doesn't affect the flavor of course. Cause I feel like I need to eat some spinach or something green this week, but all I keep grabbing is another Hershey's candy bar. So get on that please.
By the way, Luke said school was really fun. Yahoo. And there are 8 boys in his class.
