I'm still here!



Yeah, ouch.
No baby yet...my 4th of July prediction was off...which is pretty unusual for me. But I did also predict July 7th...and the way I feel today, it will most likely be BY then...I woke up at 5:45 this morning with some pretty consistent, not so comfy contx. Timed them a little then got up to "nest" a bit...do some dishes, laundry blah blah blah...they slowed down...dang it. I decided to go back and lay down and slept SOME MORE and woke up a bit ago. What's a girl to do to have her kid come out?? (yes, I know all the old wive's tales and we've tried a lot of them) I've done this 4 times already, you'd think this kid would just fall out. Fall out girl. c'mon...

Soooo, my loving sister and momma called a few times to check on me, see if I happened to have the baby in the middle of the night (remember, a watched pot never boils:):))and I've been instructed that I will be hanging out at mom's house when David leaves for work, in case baby #5 gets her act together and heads out. That way, loving hubby can leave his job (down south of us, an hour away) and mom can get us up to the birth center (such a weird concept to me...can't I just have it at home?)
Hope y'all enjoy the extremely pregnant pix of me up above...I look painful, don't I?? youch.
Sorry to dwell...it's getting old. soak it up, soak it up...cherish these moments...I'm trying.
I will get any new news on this blog as soon as I can...we only stay at the birth center for four hours after the baby arrives so you know I will be blogging as soon as we get home.
Have a super day, keep me in your prayers...I appreciate it!! Lots of love coming your way!
