Flying by..

December and me!!!! I cannot believe that it is only 2 more days to Christmas!!! Ugh, but hey that is why I have been so absent... things have ramped up here with Kent out of school on break, and us trying to run all over to get a ton of appointments taken care of so that he doesn't miss much school!! We had to go, go, go 3 days this past week, and then I thought I was off the hook for Thursday when it dawned on my preggo brain that Clark, the government employee didn't have to work on Monday, so if I wanted to make the brownie drop off this year then I HAD to crawl up out of my nice warm, cozy, couch, and bake the hell out of about 10 dozen brownie bites, so they were ready to take to Clark's job on Friday morning... GAH!!!! So I spent the rest of the day slaving over a hot oven, and stealing brownie bites!!! Turtle HATES the mixer by the way... it was to funny, every time I had to run it she would get downright violent with me!!!

Friday we went to drop the "Gifts" off, and then stayed and had lunch with all of the people from Clark's office, it was really nice, but after the busy week I had, had I was ready to come home and take a NAP!!! :o)

Yesterday, I thought that I would give the guys some time alone to wrap gifts, so off I went to drop off a flat tire from one of the cars, buy a new door knob set at Lowe$, and then drop off a few gifts and cards that I had left. After all that, and a great sub for dinner, I fell into the couch and went right to sleep at about 8 PM... well, next thing I know, I have this sharp pain, well down there, and get up thinking that I really needed to just pee!!! Oh did I ever!! After I went, I crawled in bed, and just laid there.... little Miss Turtle was rolling all over and making it impossible to sleep.... I suppose it was after about 30 minutes that I realized I was having contractions right after she would roll over. Well, Clark comes to bed about 11 or so, and saw that I was awake, asked why, and I told him. At that point I was looking at the contractions being about 10 minutes apart..... well do you think for one minute that they stayed that far apart??? Nope, they got closer and closer until for 40 minutes they were 4 minutes apart... so I tossed my bag together, was just thinking about calling the OB, and getting Clark up when boom, they go back to 10 minutes, and then further apart...... So I gave it about an hour and crawled my tired ass back into bed about 3:30... so this little girl has started with yanking my chain all over again, and honestly it isn't cute anymore!!!! UGH!! Neither of us want her to come yet, but playing with me like this isn't making her mommy a very happy camper right now!!!

So all day today I have been having contractions off and on, but nothing regular or consistent..... I have my next OB appointment on the 27th, and I am not sure if he will do an internal exam, but I am almost thinking I need to ask for one to see what is going on in there... I know I have to be dilated or something, because that was how I KNEW that the contractions that I had last night weren't of the Braxton Hicks variety... they hurt in my cervix!!! That is so not a pleasant feeling either let me tell you!!! LOL

After this next OB appointment, we start going every week, and if I make it to 38 weeks, they will do another U/S to check on her size and position... I so already know that she is head down, but I wouldn't put it past this little girl to flip into a breach position on me just for shits and giggles!!!

I hope that everyone out there has a great holiday, which ever one you celebrate, may it be a Happy one!!! Hugs from the Infertile house!!!

Wow, you're getting so close--it seems amazing that you're talking about 38 weeks! Poor Turtle not liking the mixer. It must have driven her crazy when you were making so many brownie bites (which, I must add...ummmmmm). It sounds like things are very busy now and I hope that you have at least a little while to relax a bit before Turtle makes her appearance!

Sounds like Turtle is starting up the pre-game show! How exciting that you only have a short way to go!!!!
