5 more days...

so, i have been through this childbearing stuff before. i know it's not smart to sit around and hope for a baby to come. i know it's futile to hope that i will go before my due date. So, here i sit. doing the things i know are pointless. i was sooooooo busy for the last month or so that since this weekend has been over, i have had some real time on my hands to be "bored". "i knew i should have filled up this last week with stuff!!!" Yesterday i started having contractions in the AM and some other signs of early labor that i will leave to your imagination (you're welcome gentlemen!). I actually thought that this baby may come early...like today! I actually packed my overnight bag, went and bought baby diapers, nursing apparel, packed jackson's bags, lined up my back up to take care of jackson and figured i'd get a few hours of shut eye b4 the BIG contractions started. I prayed for as much sleep as the Lord knew i would need for strength to get through labor and went to sleep. I woke up this AM with nary a contraction to speak of. And, nary a contraction to really shake a stick at today. Hmmm....interesting.
So, i have napped a great deal (yummy!), went to lunch at a friend's, had a cousin over for lunch and now i am out of entertaining ideas...i mean, i don't have a desire to entertain anymore! :)
If you don't get an urge to nest...does that mean the baby won't come!?? LOL Nathan has been the nester! What a joy it is to have a MORE than helpful husband!!

oh yay!! let's pause for a contraction! that's exciting!!
ok, i'm back! :)
just uncomfortable...not painful! but, progress is progress i guess!

ok, well i am really just blogging to pass the time - nothing really to talk about, just need something to do! :)

Hopefully your little one will arrive VERY soon...I can't wait to hear about it!! I was just reading Ginny's blog before coming over here to read yours and she is SO close too :) Praying that this little baby decides to come soon and you will be well-rested for all that's coming!!!

Hi Shyla,
I don't know if you remember me or not, but I have been keeping up with you on your blog! I, too, have an August baby -- in the south -- uggh. So I totally sympathize with you. I hope the baby comes soon and that you have a safe delivery!

I know exactly how you felt...waiting and waiting. I was induced with both so I think if I was ever allowed to let nature take its course...I would be pregnant forever. but...
CONGRATS!!! I hope the transition from one to two is easy.
