This Week

This week has been so busy and it's only getting busier!
Monday- After Kindermusik, Muff went to Nana & Pawpaw's. My midwife appointment went well. Peg says that Baby E is in the correct (head down) position and we discussed my labor and delivery wishes...and I maybe broke down and cried...just a little bit. Peg always seems to do everything right and know exactly what to say. (She didn't mention any dramatic weight gain and I didn't ask) She made me feel so much better and promised that we'll do everything possible to have a VBAC. She also gave me the consent form for a VBAC and we went over all of the hospital procedures. (I'll have to be constantly monitored and will only be able to be up and about or in the whirlpool if the portable monitor is working that day.) Big Daddy still has to do his research on all of the possible risks and then we'll make sure together that this is what we want. In the end all we really want is our baby and we'd like for him or her to be as healthy as possible. I want at least one of us to be able to witness the birth this time, whether it's a vaginal delivery or a c-section. Most of all, I'm at peace with either one.
After my appointment, I wrapped The Muffin's birthday presents. I'm so excited about hiding them all over the house for her to find on Saturday!
The day was topped off with dinner out (at Sir Pizza, Tara) with Big Daddy. The Muffin missed her nap and slept through our whole meal. This will probably count as the last date night before we become the parents of two.
Tuesday- The Muffin and I came home and then went shopping to buy flowers for the deck. We went for a nice, long walk together.
Wednesday- Storytime at the library and then a trip to the grocery store. We went out after dinner, just to mess around a bit.
Thursday- So far, I've cleaned the upstairs and put out weedkiller on the front yard. The Muffin played in her sandbox and watered a tree with her watering can. Muff and I went out for lunch and ice cream and then across the street to visit our neighbor. Now that The Muffin is finally asleep, I'm going to finish the weedkiller, change clothes and plant myself on the couch with a baby magazine...and drink a small glass of Diet Cherry Dr. Pepper, because I love it.
Friday- I'll clean the downstairs and count the hours and minutes until Big Daddy gets here. I'm starting to get the hang of loving Fridays again!

Thanks for the Sir Pizza shoutout to me:-) I do love that place except they put wayyy too much sausage even when I ask them to go light.

You have had a busy week. Andrew and I just got back in from a long walk! Make sure to rest....I should probably listen to my own advice (but I'm not pregnant)!

Mmmm... now I want Mr. Pibb or some Barq's! We never keep it in the house so when a craving hits, it hits hard!

Sounds like a busy week. I've been thinking about birth lately, too. I follow a few L&D nurse blogs and it's fascinating reading about births!

Yah, you made me want cherry coke too! Grrrrrrrrrr! You weeks are VERY busy these days! I can't imagine being preggo AND having a little one! I figured I'll cross that bridge when I come to it... I'm so glad that Ellie's head is DOWN! Wahoo! Final call, we find out next week if it's a c section or not...
