I have my 36 week appt. at 8am, so I had better get some sleep right? I can’t wait to see if I have dilated any more. For the last two weeks I have been at 2cm and 50% effaced. For those that don’t know, delivery occurs when you are 10cm and 100% effaced. I hope I have made a little more progress. At around 8pm today, I started having some pretty uncomfortable contractions. They lasted about 2 hours and were 4 minutes apart. I took a bath and drank some water [which is supposed to help ease them if they aren’t TRUE labor contractions ]. They stopped after I took my bath. I hope all the contractions I have are helping, so that this labor can be a fast one like my last! I honestly don’t think I’ll make it until my due date, but we shall see, eh?
My kids are getting away with murder because I am too fat and lazy to go after them. lol. I folded to two loads of clothes today and with one swipe Shae knocked them to the floor! GRRRRRR. She was trying to get on the bed to look out the window, so she didn’t do it on purpose…but do you know how rare it is for me to do housework? lol. My little Shan is missing the preschool we used to do, but I just have no more energy. I can’t imagine if I had an outside job. I’d be horrible. I guess the fact that I still have morning sickness daily doesn’t help. ahhhhhh, pregnancy.
My cousin already has the menu together for the baby shower:
wing dings [ small chicken drumsticks and wings ]
mac and cheese
Hmmmm. I will probably only eat the spaghetti. lol.
Pregnancy Note: 85% of babies are born within 2 weeks of their due dates, either early or late.
