"Sit the 'beep' down and shut the 'beep' up" is what Kristi R told me on my wedding day as I was overwhelmed with anticipation. (However, she may have used a quite popular "F" word in place of the "beep.")
Part of me wishes that she would have that conversation with me again now. But unfortunately, there is just so much to do before this baby arrives. Every time I get a little bit of energy, I completely overdue it, resulting in complete exhaustion and premature contractions.
My Facebook status update today reads: "Patty is wondering if this severe fatigue is God's way of telling me to get some sleep because I'm not going to get any when this baby comes." I believe this to be very much true.
I think the wake up call came this weekend when we attended a fundraiser for the St. Agnes Men's Club, a Casino Night that included Dinner, Dancing and Gambling. (Don't worry I didn't dance!!) Then the next day we drove up to Bass Lake to check out the new cabin and have a Forks burger. I quickly learned that I can no longer sit in a car that long. The BH contractions that day were rather frequent and rather strong. This child is sitting really low in my belly with his head pushing against my pelvic bone. It is sooooo uncomfortable!!
I am 35 weeks along and everyday I wonder how I am going to make it another day. I could potentially go another 5 weeks! Eeeekkk! Hopefully the contractions are dilating my cervix and it won't be much longer. My next doctor's appointment is on May 7th. I will keep you posted!
I just hope the baby's furniture arrives soon. The baby's room is nowhere near complete. What to do.... What to do.... SO MUCH to do......
Here is a picture of Steve and I before the fundraiser and another one of Carson riding a tractor with Grandpa.
