Hey Rebecca. It would be exciting to hear your babe came this morning. If not, I hope you got caught up on some much needed sleep.

No baby yet! I went out shopping with some family this afternoon... it was exhausting! I picked up some last minute baby/labour items. I decided to get some disposable wipes as I haven't had a chance to make enough cloth ones for two kiddos in diapers, and I also got some lip balm for my labour bag, a new pair of jammies and some epsom salts for sitz baths.
And you know what?! 3 months ago people were saying constantly, "you must be due soon!" and I would say, "no, still a few months left." And today, now that I'm 3 days "overdue" and love telling people to see their shocked faces, not a single person asked! Darn public.
On a different note, I finally talked hubby into bringing the crib out of the basement... am I a little behind? lol (I don't remember my other two sleeping in it until they were much older, but it just didn't seem right to give birth without it set up. haha)
Contemplating taking the children for a walk at the park today. Part of my thinks it's a silly idea because my son is busy busy busy and I will be exhausted when I leave... but maybe the extra walking will help gravity do it's work?
Also having a little get together with some of my girlfriends tonight. We have "creative circle" where we do something crafty and have some snacks. I think we're having rootbeer floats tonight. Yum.
I know the balancing act between doing too much and hoping that walking / activity brings something on....especially with children who have lots of energy to burn and need to go out of the house . It sounds like you are feeling pretty good though to contemplate going out?
Yay for going out tonight - I am impressed that you can stay awake to socialise
