End of October...

... and probably the last nice day of the year... guess it may get up to close to 70 today.

And of course, I am still waiting for baby. Samantha had her 4th birthday on Sunday and all she wanted was a new baby for it, but she didn't get her wish (she has since become ok with it). So we just sit and wait. I made it to week 38 on Saturday and both Jeff and Sami were born in the 38th week... so of course I am on edge. There is just so much going on in the kids' school this week that I don't want them to miss. And of course Halloween is tomorrow and I have mixed feelings on missing out on seeing the kids Trick or Treating and handing out candy. *sigh*

I tell you, I cannot wait to be able to lay on my back!!! This tossing and turning all night is for the birds (yes, I know the baby will wake me up).

Otherwise, just feel like sitting around and doing nothing. I have so many things I could do and I haven't felt up to it.

I guess I will just keep you posted.

Still Waiting

I am still waiting... I mean, yes, I know I am not due for over 20 days.. I am just really, really impatient and antsy. Had a Dr (NP) appt Monday.. she said I am 1cm and 75% effaced. Had an u/s on Tuesday for dates and baby was measuring at 37w1d and probably 7 pounds. It feels like I am having an occasional BH or even real contraction... but nothing consistant. And I am feeling so huge and uncomfortable. When I sleep or stand too long I feel siatic nerve pain on my left side and it is driving me nuts.And I am so hoping to go into labor this week, both kids are off of school all week and so I could send the kids to my parents and not be upset about them missing school. But that plan was thwarted somewhat because my Dad went into the hospital w/ pneumonia Saturday night and HOPEFULLY will be out today. Though my Mom said she would figure things out if I would go into labor.
Otherwise we are pretty much ready - besides packing our clothes. Baby clothes are washed, things are bought, baby's bag is ready, diapers are bought and last night dh took down the car seat and bassinet.
*tick, tock, tick, tock*

And I know... I still need to update on other things... I just feel like doing nothing right about now!!!
