Officially waiting for baby's arrival. I had amazing energy and clear thinking last night and most of today. I made the potatoe soup & naan, then today made a big batch of chili and cornbread. I've even prepped for pumpkin bread for breakfast tomorrow! Not to mention (but I guess I am mentioning) a thorough vacuuming, learning planned for children -complete with sticker charts, spending time with children, two loads of dishes (anyone volunteering for the pans?), and I can't think of anything else right now.
I had gone downhill for the past week, culminating with trying to get out of bed this morning. It wasn't a pinched nerve (sciatic) or even contractions, but my lower back hurt so bad I had to crawl out of the room, much to the delight of #5 who came to pat me on the back & tickle me.
Most of the morning it hurt, but was getting better as the day went. I noticed that the contractions didn't hurt, helped with the back pain and gave me lots of energy!! So, now I seem to be getting things done while I have contractions - I don't think anyone knows how many contractions I have all day long!! There is rarely a time when I don't, they're usually every 10 mins for hours, I notice when I don't have them!! So...the real reason for the post, PICTURES:)
this post. I'm looking at that picture and laughing!!
