Ah, the last few weeks of pregnancy. Nothing but awkward uncomfortable pain coupled with the delusional idea that it will never end.
I'm not sure why he's still in there. It's not like there's any more room. Even my midwife asked if I was doing okay, since he's pretty much taken over my entire torso.
Meh. All my kids have done that. *shrug
I'm due in 10 days. Or so. Who knows when he's coming, eh? Having been induced 4 times out of 5, it's nice to just wait for him to come on his own. And infuriating. I'm trying to be very patient. But it's hard!
Just this morning, we ran a few errands. It only took a few hours. Wasn't rushed. Got home and fell asleep on the couch for two hours! I was DONE. Yesterday, after Church and choir practice, etc. I did the same thing. My body just shut down. I could barely walk, really.
So much to do. Can't physically do it anymore. So, I'm not. I'm doing my best to do what I can when I have energy, but I'm not stupid enough to push myself too hard. One thing I've learned over the years --babies tend to come when mom is rested enough to physically endure labor. At least that's what I've seen.
So, after all the happenings of Valentine's Day tomorrow, I'm hoping to just rest, rest, rest this week! Think I can do it? Sigh...
I just signed the kids up for Spring Soccer. Why, do you ask? Because I am a glutton for punishment. And it's cheap. Plus the kids like it. Honestly, I like watching them do something that incorporates fresh air, exercise, teamwork, and fun --as long as it's only a 2 months stint every 6 months. I HEART parks & rec!
#1 told me a boy asked her to be his valentine and she said, "yes." It doesn't mean anything, I guess, but it was from the boy she likes. Apparently he knows she likes another boy, too. And this boy also likes two other girls. Frankly, I think it's hilarious, but my daughter is so bold! She said yes!? I probably would have punched him in the eye and burst into tears when I was nearly 11 years old.
That reminds me! She's eleven! Sheesh! She's too young to be having a real valentine. I keep thinking about my "boyfriend" past and I realize, "Brandon needs to buy a shot-gun soon."
It snowed like crazy yesterday. Just fyi. Because I'm sure you were wondering.
I taught Sunday School yesterday and it was this lesson. We focused on 2 Nephi, chapter 4 --I absolutely love Nephi's example. I need to throw out a big hanks to Julie who uploaded this awesome video on her blog! I used it at the end of my lesson. It is such a perfect and beautiful song.
