I'm still pregnant. Not exactly surprising, but I was hoping maybe something would happen over the weekend :)
I really need to be working on stuff right now, but thought I'd pause a moment here, because I don't know for sure when I'll be back. I have several boxes to unpack, as we did some more moving yesterday, along with doing laundry, working on my freezer cooking, and getting the house cleaned up. Tomorrow I have to do school stuff for the girls as well.
So, the big day is Tuesday around 10:30. (central time) I have to be at the hospital at 5:30am!! Which means that I have to leave the house by 4:30am, thereby I have to GET UP by 4 at the latest. Wow. Guess I better have everything done so I can get to bed early. My poor parents have to come to my house then too to stay with my other children and then bring them later. I hope that the girls understand that mom is ok even though I'm hooked up to various things.
Yesterday I was treated to a very nice pedicure and watched the movie Julie and Julia at the theater. I loved the movie- very well done, although it is PG-13. I am definitely going to get Julia Child's cookbook now.
If the hospital has wireless internet, my husband will be able to post pictures for me. If not it may be a few days- I should be home Thursday at some point. It's hard to believe I've come to the end. The last several weeks have been difficult, but when I look back to when I first found out I was pregnant, it seems to have flown by now. I don't feel ready mentally- I've been so preoccupied with everything else, that it's hard for me to settle down and think of life with a newborn and 4 children. I'm nervous about the changes my body will go through and pray it looks ok afterwards.
But overall, no matter the obstacles, it will all be worth it when I get to hold my prize. Thanks so much for your thoughts and prayers and kind words of encouragement. You'll all get to see her soon!
