Morning all, nothing new to report! DD woke up at 8:15, not so bad, but of course I was already lying awake. I didn't get the greatest night of sleep, no surprise. I have a headache today and my belly is bigger and harder but no new pains or changes.
I'd like to get out walking today but it's rainy and cold. We don't have any malls here so we're thinking of driving to Concord to shop a little. It's an hour drive from our house, half on a smaller bumpy state road. If I did go into labor, though, it's only an hour back to the hospital--all interstate. It would complicate things--we'll have DD with us so my mom would have to meet us at the hosp--but hey, what are the chances I go into labor? (Though I do hear lots of stories of women going into labor in Target...heheh)
So I'm going to go throw on some clothes and try to get out of here. Putting some blue disposable Chux pads ("borrowed" from work) in the car just in case!
So lots of women go into labor in Target?? I should go, I live 5 mins from one of the biggest Targets in the SE US hehehe
Just don't give the "borrowed" chucks back to your work!
Today was a good day but I'm still not in labor! Don't worry, you'll be the second to know.
We had a nice long drive, had lunch out, and then spent 4hrs walking around Linens N' Things (we had gift cards to spend) and Target. I was pretty comfortable the whole time. It wasn't til we got home that I started feeling some intense ctx but they were brief and went nowhere. I spent the evening doing laundry and am now going to bed--I've got work in the morning! I don't have to go, but I'd rather put in a mellow day tomorrow than go back 1 day sooner in late July.
Here are some 40w3d pics. I'm definitely dropping some...
In LnT, we broke out the stroller (rare for us) thinking the novelty would encourage DD to behave...it worked for a while
Tonight, at home
And I had to throw in the classic toddler camera grab shot
I'm glad you had a good day and got in some retail therapy. You do look great Helina and that pic of Lidia is very cute!
I wish Jayden would be as patient and well behaved as Lidia in the shops, but he's 8 so has to walk in front of people and constantly touch breakable things.
