Agony at 10pm

At the moment, I almost wish I hadn’t posted the blog I did earlier. Go figure, I post a blog about how my contractions always stop at noon, only for them to get closer and stronger as the day goes on. If that is all it needed, I would have done that days ago!!!!

At the moment my contractions are 5 to 8 minutes apart, and 35 to 50 seconds long. I’m starting to think my dad was right on the day. At this rate, Alyssa should be here on the 29th.  I think she’s going to be a grandpa’s little girl!

Playing the waiting game….

Still Waiting. Alyssa has decided on many ocassions over this past week that she was ready to make her appearance into the world. Only to decide that she wanted to stay in her comfy little bubble EVERY single time.

Everyday since the 22nd had started the same. Wake up with TONS of pressure, start to get some mild contraction, contractions get a little worse, Contractions stop at noon, live the rest of the day with a ton of pressure (still) and hopefully another contraction or two.

I’m starting to think that she is going to stay in there forever! I know the longer she is in there the better it is for her, but I’m getting tired of the same thing happening everyday. I get my hopes up when the contractions start to get worse and then nothing.

By the way, the same thing is happening right now!!!!

Of all the things I could be happy about….

I have no clue why, but I decided to see if a pair of Capris from last summer would still fit me. I guess maybe because they were low rise I thought they would fit. To my supprise they actually did!!!!! Thank the Lord! I was afraid I was going to have to die wearing jeans in this heat!

In other news, Diaper bag is packed, my bag just needs the everyday basics in it, and the house is mostly clean. Who knows, maybe Alyssa will be here by the end of the weekend. There is a full moon on Sunday.

I hope I’m getting close

Since the shower on Saturday, I’ve had about 6 decent contractions a day, more lower back pain, and more pressure on my cervix. The good news is that I don’t need hooked up to an IV for antibiotics during labor. My group B strep test came back negative!!!!!

As for the nesting, everything in the nursery is ready to go, my bag is mostly packed and the diaper bad is mostly packed. I just need to clean a little more of the house and get some last minute baby stuff.

Exciting week so far

I found out that my sister-in-law just had her baby. A little boy. I’d put the name up, but they picked an odd name and I have no clue how to spell it!

I’m also hyped up for this Saturday. Yea baby shower It’s going to be so much fun!

Just taking a break…

It’s finally hit. I’m nesting like crazy. I don’t even know where the energy came from, the baby kept me up all night! At least the appartment will be really clean for a while.

What I need to do: Finish cleaning up dog pee stains, vaccuum the house, clean the bathrooms, clean off the table, finish unpacking boxes from December, wash the baby’s clothes soon, Put the car seat in my car (and clean it out while I’m at it), pack my bag for the hospital and pack a diaper bag ASAP after the baby shower.

I think thats it. Most likely not though. I think I can get it all done in a week. If I can I’ll be impressed with myself!

April will be good

I just had to!! My due date is officially ONE MONTH away!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can’t wait. I just hope she doesn’t decide to make her appearance on the 12th. Otherwise it really will be a baby shower!
