Ramblings of the day...

Everything is generally good.

I am officially into my third trimester (THANK GOD!) at 29 weeks on Wednesday. Baby is still small, though, at 2.5lbs. I've been drinking lots of juice and water, but he doesn't seem to be getting any bigger...don't know why, but he's doing well nonetheless.

My contractions are getting more intense, but aren't happening too often. Once, maybe twice a day, but more if I move around too much. While trying to sort some clothes in preparation for packing, I learned why its so important for me to stay hurts to move and this baby doesn't like it at all. I swear I feel him moving down further and further when I so much as take a step. Well, Baby wins 'cause I'm not gonna take any chances. It isn't fair to him if I do.

I had a really bad dream last night, too. When I went in for a sono, they saw that the cord was wrapped around his neck. I knew the baby was in good hands, but I freaked out 'cause that meant doc had to stick his big ol man hands up there to undo it! They had to put me out 'cause I wasn't letting them go anywhere near my southern parts. What woke me up was Baby kicking me, which meant, "Turn over or I won't stop doing this!" He likes that game 'cause he did it all damn night and does it when I lay on the couch. He's a demanding little booger. lol

In Wesley's dream last night, he said Baby would cry every single time he picked him up and wouldn't stop until I took him. I was like, "That means he doesn't like you." and Wes goes, "That's okay 'cause I'm still his Daddy." That made my morning.

So today I'm pretty psyched about this little one. I never thought I'd be in this position. You know...married and pregnant. Never thought it was for me, but "Never say never," right? It feels good to be married, but it is so true when they say the first year is hard. Then we go and throw a baby in the mix. What were we thinking???

So...I'm excited, nervous, scared, among so many other things right now. I'm gonna try taking things one step at a time. Starting with this little boy.

I'll stop here 'cause I've been listening to Jaheim and now I'm completely sidetracked. Oops lol

Alright...I'm keeping this short...

Dr. Simmons gave me the okay to come home late Tuesday night, but says I can only get up to pee and get something to drink...SERIOUSLY??? I've been home for two days now and am going absolutely out of my mind! I can't do anything - not check the mail (which involves going down 3 flights of stairs), cook my own food - NOTHING!

At my sono Tuesday we saw that the baby was already in position, but my cervix is now cooperating so he won't be going anywhere as long as I stay down like I'm supposed to. Doc also says the only place I can go if I feel like I just can't sit still anymore is back to the hospital. lol His office and the NICU - to remind me of how important and serious my being on bedrest really is. Yeah.

My mom came over Wednesday morning and it was good having her here. She made me lunch and even cleaned our kitchen! How great is that?! She couldn't come over today because of work and daycare center preparations, but I can't wait to see her tomorrow - she's good company.

Thanks for the prayers and kind words. Wes and I are confident that everything will be okay - we've got the power of prayer and a STRONG support system on our side!

Now back to the couch...
