still here, still waiting..

And some moments, that's rather impatiently waiting, though right now is not one of them. I'm quite content at this moment, having done some laundry and finished separating out newborn sized gowns and onesies from Corban's old clothes, responded to some emails, done the dishes, and straitened my hair. What?! :) It's alright to at least try and look decent when you're 9 months pregnant and having contractions every 7 minutes. Yes, you read correctly. Every 7 minutes, on average anyway. Since 5:30. But there will be a few that will come every 5 minutes, and then 8 minutes, and then back to 7. For awhile I thought this might be the real deal. When this (rather long) spurt began, I was feeling really crampy and nauseaus. Now I'm just irritated, and wish they'd either speed up or slow down so I knew what was going on. But anyway, it's nice to have a completely silent, mostly clean house, and to not feel like I should be doing something else instead.
Jordan cooked dinner for me tonight. That was a nice treat. Corban went to bed without a hitch tonight, which was also good. He even took a 4 hour nap this afternoon!!! I slept for nearly 2 of those, which was much needed and wonderful. I did some more walking this morning, but as you can see, it was a failed attempt at walking the baby out. I was awake from contractions every couple of hours last night, so I was dragging today.
Anyway, I don't really have anything important to say right now. Just that I haven't had the baby yet, in case you were wondering. :) Someday soon, though. There's a full moon tomorrow and a big winter storm moving in... maybe nature will help me along?! haha. Have a wonderful weekend!


  1. I feel bad for you! I have absolutely no idea what you are going through, of course. But hey, if I can't empathize then I will sympathize. :) Stay cheery! I keep waiting to not see a post from you and I get excited when you haven't posted - I think you've possibly gone to have your baby. Brian and I can't wait to hear some baby news from you guys!

  2. Oh, it won't be long now. I'm excited for you. Can't wait to hear the announcement once she makes her debut. :)
