    The whole plan/control issue must go hand-in-hand with anxiety disorder. I am the same way. Sounds like the weird bp reading was not anything to worry about.

    Well I think it is definately a combination of my thyroid being off and anxiety. I was feeling fine today until class when I had to give a presentation, then I got really anxious and did not feel right. But after relaxing I feel fine and checked my BP and it was fine. But the past three days every time I have checked my resting pulse has been over a 100, so I do think my thyroid is off.

    Yeah I think with anxiety the need to feel in control really helps since it makes you feel so out of control. I think that is why the thought of having all my birthing plans change really increased my anxiety.

    Yeah I definately get white coat syndrome with BP, so I hope she is not going to take it next week as well. This is why I have been told to take it at the grocery store. And that is so true about how varying readings are. This is why Finn said she should have just not said that reading and just taken it again in a few minutes without telling me the first results.

    Had another panic attack yesterday. I had forgotten how much I hate those. But today was my last day of classes for my masters. Now just a final critique and a group final exam next week. I cannot believe I am finally almost done. Definately feeling much better and less stressed now. Did not get much sleep last since I was up half the night with contractions, but they are gone now. We had major thunderstorms which always seem to cause contractions for me. We are supposed to have more this afternoon, so we will see. Also my mom should arrive in a few hours, yeah. Now if I go into labor there will be someone for Hawkes anytime.

    I love your new siggy pic, by the way.
    Sorry about the panic attacks. That's rough. I have severe anxiety issues so I understand. Hooray for mom being there, sounds like you are ready!

    Glad your mom will be there soon, or is already there. I hope that helps with the anxiety and maybe you could take a nap. Maybe having here with you will release any mental blocks you may have had about going into labor.
    There are no thunderstorms here in WA. Sometimes I miss them but not when they are scary bad. Just when it's just enough to make you stay in and feel cozy and safe.
    I am so sorry you had a panic attack. My wish for you is to get some good "peaceful" time to relax before labor starts.

    Thanks on the picture. I just think it captures his personality so well and his favorite activity looking for bugs. We call him our little entamologist.

    My mom is here now and it so nice. She is doing dishes and cooking dinner right now. Also she brought me a case of the best ice cream in the entire world. It is only from a local chain of ice cream parlors in Cinicinnati where I grew up. I am so excited. They have the best chip ice cream ever since rather than just shaving chocolate into the ice cream they pour in melted chocolate while making it, so it has nice chunks of chocolate.

    It has been a nice relaxing day and it is gorgeous out right now. Libby has been really quiet today, so I am wondering if that means anything. I am also starting to have contractions again. Tonight would be a good time I keep telling her.

    That ice cream sounds positively wonderful! How sweet of your mom to spoil you with that!

    Hooray for the contractions. Yes, tonight would be a wonderful night for you!

    Hi - Just checking in on you! How's that ice cream? My little guy (the one who just turned 4) also loves to find bugs. And slugs. (The slugs are new to me - no slugs where I'm from).
