37-38 weeks

Depends on the date you go by...but damn, there is no baby yet. I had an appt today and no dilation, no effacement. Amazing.

I had to stop working as of Saturday due to extreme dizziness and my job not being interested in that can of worms if something were to happen while I was on the clock, so I am officially a stay at home mama until August.

I need to figure something out income wise, I am thinking about starting up a two under two blog but am unsure how the process is going to work with the whole two needy kids, especially in the beginning, but besides one or two blogs I've found, there isnt much information I can find. I think it would be good to get something going for those moms seeking it. Hey maybe it would make some money.

I don't know that anyone is reading this anymore, as I took off six months and then promised posts daily only to deliver once a week maybe, but hey...I'm trying to deliver a baby over here... sorry!

As we know no baby is planning on arriving this week, or in May in general...I have at least a week to come up with this new blog and maybe even play a little in the rain with my daughter since there is no sun to be found around here in the NW. We shall see!

35 weeks

This was one busy week, my birthday and mothers a baby shower or two to attend (only one was for me). We started off the week with a bang! I was out to lunch with my brother and SIL, maddie was sitting on my lap because she was being feisty and decided to arch her back so fast she fell off my lap and onto the hardwood floor of the place. 10 minutes of crying later and we managed to gain the attention of everyone there She also spit up from all the tears, not a concussion, but just from being so upset so i had the eyes of many staring down the girl who already looks too young to have one kid, let alone another on the way. Thankfully later that night we made up for it with a marvelous trip to the melting pot for a big birthday dinner...I only say marvelous for the food, because for how often and how expensive this place is, the service this time was below kosher. It's a fondue place that we normally visit for the happy hour, but did the big dinner with about 6 of us being that it was my 30th. The waiter sucked ass, but the food was worth it and I went home feeling more like an overstuffed sausage casing than a human.

Our weekend seemed to get better. We had a mini sprinkle shower since this is our second, so close together, and another girl. My mom did a great job and we are now well stocked with enough formula and diapers for the first few months of life (those same months I will be incomeless, so although I am not religious...we were really blessed in that regard). What a huge weight off my shoulders!

The new toddler room is nearly finished. I'll have to post about that separately. I have some reviews on what we got...enough of a complaint to consider starting a blog solely for reviewing merch. Again, feels good to be complete in that department. I took maddie into the room after the dr sues.s decals were up and she just kept giggling and pointing to everything. I think it's a hit. I just hope she's ready for a toddler bed.

So, 4 weeks by my doctors thoughts and anytime in my head we could have ourselves a baby. I get long bouts of contractions and swelling when I overdue it. Plus this kid is killing me with the movement around my cervix. I imagine its due to the breech position, still getting monster strong kicks to the vaj all of the time!

Yay for more uti pain!

I think we can count this number 5 or so in this duration of pregnancy. It's causing crazy amounts of tightening and contracting when I am at work so I'm pretty much useless when there. My kidneys also kill like a mother when I stand too long. I went into urgent care on Saturday rather than the l&d and had a very kooky doctor. He mentioned I'd be induced early and I asked him to clarify, but he made a zip motion on his lips and told me to talk to the doctor today. Needless to say the to do list before baby comes is looking a bit more urgent these days. I am currently waiting on dr dreamy to come in so I can ask what's up. I don't know how much longer I should be working as it's pretty painful even for only a short time each day. The hubs is now getting nervous about taking a trip when I'm 36-37 weeks...I could have told him that (and probably did tell him numerous times it wasn't a great idea).
