Feeling It

I have a few fun sewing projects I want to get off the ground but...to be honest...I'm just not feeling up to it!

I'm loving these contractions now because I can tell they're doing something: I feel a tiny head grinding down my cervix with each hard push.  Sometime last night I became resigned to holding onto baby girl a little while longer.  Perhaps it was finding out that two Senior Missionaries are returning to our ward and will be speaking on Sunday, and I really want to be there.  Or it could be that I'm feeling the stubborn spirit inside me will come when she's ready, and no amount of walking, lunging, or yoga ball bouncing will convince her otherwise.  Though the yoga ball bouncing was actually really comfortable.  I may have to invest in one of those...

The nice thing about the forced delay (what delay?  I'm only 36 weeks pregnant!  I know, I know...) is that I've been able to get a lot of nesting done.  Last night Brett and I went through the kids toys.  When we were done, Brett rubbed his fingers together and grimaced.  "My fingers feel yucky."  Haha, yeah, their toys were kinda gross.  And I'd be happy happy to never own another Happy Meal toy again.  Psht, like that'll happen!

Brett and I are going to the temple tonight for a date.  We're even having dinner there, which gets me super excited, because I love LOVE the cafeteria food at the temple.  I'm easy to please.  I have a feeling this may be our last date night for awhile...but that's okay!  That's one thing about life, it keeps going on.  Babies are born, and then they turn into toddlers and then pretty soon they're starting kindergarten, but we won't talk about that because I can't stand crying anymore.  I can't believe my baby, MY FIRST BORN, will be officially snipping the proverbial umbilical cord and leaving me half a day everyday.  Traitor.

But maybe...

I am home and I am happy that the babe stayed put...I know, so selfish of me.

The funny thing is, Chunky was supposed to be early because of the angry uterus but he ended up sticking in there until his due date. Little stinker. He turns 2 on Saturday *sniff

School? I thought she'd just reset when she turned two and we'd get to do the first to second year over and over! :)

The yoga ball made my hips feel much better. It also made me feel like I was being proactive in wearing out my cervix. It didn't help much, but it made me feel like it was.

I hope you had a wonderful date!!
