    My kids have been super clingy as well. The nearest thing we can figure is that they sense baby will be here soon. Hope your appt goes well

    Ok well I had intended on posting about my appointment when I got home this morning but I had a bit of a nap LOL

    So the appointment went well, the midwives said he looks great, I look great and I'm now free and clear to do anything I want from jumping jacks, EPO, RRL tea, sex, and violent sneezing! WOOT! Of course being international midwife appreciation day, I brought snacks for the girls :P and we spent the first half of our appointment oogling naked pictures of Colin Ferrel ROFL! Don't ask! Anyway, blood pressure is great, GBS came back negative (YAY) and baby kicked the ever loving begeebuz out of the doppler as per usual!

    I came home feeling rather great, a bit tired but overall good (getting up at 7am for an appointment was likely the reason I was tired LOL) I managed to get Jayde registered for kindergarten on the way home and so doing knocked off one of the last things on my 'pre-baby' to do list. Once home, I decided to take a nice long shower since everyone was still in the process of waking up around the house and I had nothing pressing to do! Have I mentioned before I love my shower? (huge walk-in shower with seats and a huge hot water tank :P )

    After my awesome shower, I asked hubby to turn the kettle on so I could have some oatmeal and tea for second breakfast :P... went into our room and sat down on the bed to watch the end of cupcake wars.... Three hours later... I woke up LOL I feel like I've slept for 12 hours! Its awesome! I'm so full of energy I could run a marathon (though that would likely end up with me in labor LOL) Just finished my oatmeal, and I'm making myself some RRL tea and taking the family to the park for a bit of soccer fun! YAY!

    Funny... I almost wish I'd go into labor right now since I have such a crazy abundance of energy and am feeling GREAT! sadly... it won't happen till I'm sleep deprived the house is a mess and I'm suffering from a cold LOL

    I sure wish I could get that jump of energy! My house could really use it! I totally can relate to the puking in bed and hubby not even noticing thing, mine is the exact same way. I'm pretty sure he could sleep through almost anything. Good thing he never has night duty with our babies! And it always takes me forever to fall back to sleep also, my brain starts ticking away the things I need to get done and then I'm up listening to DH snore.

    Crazy busy day today... Got to spend the afternoon trapped (literally) in DD's classroom for 'Mommy and Me' day, which while I can see it was designed to be fun, was sooo closer to torture. Twenty 4yr olds, and twenty Mom's/Grandma's/Aunts all smushed into the little classroom which was totally overheating and didn't have a normal size chair to save a life! I was just waiting to get stuck on the floor as we were herded from activity to activity. :P

    I did however get an adorable 'flower' and card from DD, and watching the kids sing was fun even if I took nearly 3 minutes to haul my big preggo butt off the floor after ROFL. We got home after picking up milk to find Hubby got called out to the other side of the city on a job (he had to leave at the start of rush hour poor guy) so its been me and the kidlet all day! I'm worn the heck out for sure! I wish we had some decent non rainy weather so I could have let her run off some energy at the park, but thundershowers are not helping me any!

    Yet another weekend of worry ahead of me, this time instead of going 3 hours away... he's going 6hours away! To another province!!!!! I know I have to just relax and not worry but the idea of hubby missing the birth entirely makes me burst into hormonal tears... and everytime I do hubby feels horrible and says he can just stay home LOL. Sadly this job is sooo worth the money + travel, so I can't just give in to my paranoia. *sigh* Stupid high paying out of town jobs! Guess I've just gotta break out the duct tape and pray this 'false' stuff stays false all weekend!

    On a totally selfish angle... he's missing Mother's day, since this is a 3 day trip, and since my mother lives out of province and my MIL is a selfish cow (really that's not hormones talking) It'll just be me and the 4yr old I know its silly to want to be pampered and stuff, but she's just young enough that she doesn't get that its not just another day and Hubby hasn't done a darn thing since he won't be here. MIL decided that since Hubby was going out of town, her and SIL were going to drive down to another city for a day of pampering for themselves... no invite offered to me at all... which also takes my childcare and backup childcare 3 hours out of town should I go into labor. ROFL So literally I'm down to the third back up (my best friend) who doesn't have a car and lives about a half an hour away from the hospital! LOL No stress there right?

    Yup gotta stop whining sorry!

    Well, today has managed to be tremendously frustrating :P Last night I hardly slept as every twinge, BH, contraction and kick had me waking up and worrying that with Hubby gone all was going to go to the dogs as it were. So when I was woken up by a terribly adorable four year old I was exhausted! Jayde brought me an apple and a banana for my breakfast since "she's not allowed to cook for mommy alone". Awwww I was touched and yes there was a small amount of blubbering on my part lol.

    All day its been on and off with the contractions, and I used every mental technique I knew of to ignore it all, because there was no way I was going into labor without DH close by! When he called at 2 and said he was on his way home, I can't tell you the relief! OY! Once I knew he was on his way home I stopped worrying so much and tried my best to enjoy the rest of the day with DD.

    About an hour before DH got home, I felt like I had been both struck by a truck and a blast of energy! Might be a bit TMI but there was some upchucking and pooping and all of a sudden the contractions went from meh to all over the place! At one point they were fluxing from every 2 mins to every 15 mins and back again. Lets just say that is terribly annoying because I was ok with labor starting but would really like a defined "start" as it were LOL.

    Its been about 5 hours now, still nothing remotely timeable, though I had some bloody show and what I think was the last of my plug about two hours ago. I've given up caring if it starts or not LOL, took a nice long shower and shaved my legs just in case though (I know silly) So I'm going to go lay down (try to sleep) and if things happen they happen... if not... well darn it all I'm getting seriously sick of all this confusion! I never even had this with my first let alone the other two! I feel like a noob, I have -no- idea what my body is doing and its terribly frustrating! I asked DH if we could DTD to see if that picked anything up and he responded with... "And risk poking his eye out... no thanks" Sometimes I wonder about that man!

    At least now he's home, and if anything -does- happen... I'm not going into it totally alone!

    Your DH is too funny, though I'll admit if I don't want to DTD I just have to mention what the baby might think of it all, lol. I hope things either pick up and come together or it all settles down for you. At least DH is home jic
