ACK! I am a GIANT EGG! I feel HUGE! I am too uncomfortable to sleep well right now. *sigh* I'm bored and no one is chatting. My tummy has a life of it's own, and proceeds me everywhere I go and makes its own opinions known about everything. It doesn't want me standing or touching anything. and I should really be leaning back more right now in fact... :-)

We have broken into the 30s. 39 days to due date. Five weeks and four days.

The roof men are doing the shed, and then they will be done! Yay!

I have been resting! I have had a two hour rest already.
:-)

Ears: Still deaf on one side, and a bit on the other. But better.
Cough: Almost completely gone. Yay!
Cramps: Probably stress and milk related, fixed by surviving femmeconne 2007 and consuming almost a full cup of milk every morning in my porridge and coffee. Very minor cramps the night before last, and last night some twinges to remind me who is in charge here.
Baby: Good. Hiccups. Hee hee hee.

Bad news... Um... when I was pregnant with Vinnie I had an eye problem, which in the end was a blister on the inside of my eye. It's not painful or anything, but it does limit when I can drive as it interferes with my focus. I can't drive at night, though during the day is fine. It's popped up again in my right eye. Last time, I saw an ophthamologist and everything, and basically he said sometimes it comes up in pregnancy. If it's still there after the baby comes, then we might need to do something more drastic, but we can't do anything until the baby is born anyway. So, once again, a waiting game begins. At least it doesn't bloody hurt!

I was brooding yesterday because vinnie seems to be unwell. Not a lot unwell, just a little bit unwell. I was brooding because I am tired and exhausted and I resented the fact that my DayCareDay was going to be spent trucking him around to the drs *again* and going to the drs is such a hassle now. I can't chase him and keep him in place and away from the areas he is not supposed to be in, and I have to have a baby sitter to run vinnie around while I sit and watch, and it kind of makes me a little miserable.

But Chesh soothed me and it's all ok. Today was horribly disturbed and broken and involved a lot of driving to and from places, but Vinnie is well enough to go to daycare, so we just put him in there and picked him up for the appointment. We then needed to get a urine sample, and take it back to Armadale. I discovered I can drive Vinnie to daycare, drop him off, drive to Armadale, drop off the urine sample and spend a few minutes chatting with the pathology lady, and then get home, within 40 minutes. I'm impressed with that!

I feel distinctly uncomfortable. My tummy muscles are thinking about just giving up RIGHT NOW. :-) My uterus feels like it wants to fall out. I am now 30 weeks. I am firmly into the third trimester, with about 67? 68? days to due date. I am wondering how I can do prep in the morning so I don't have to get up every 30 minutes to feed vinnie or give him a drink or pay more attention to him or answer the phone or ....

For those who need to know, Grocery Zone is a magickal place. It's good. I am in love. It's a pity the butcher who delivers failed me. I really could have used them. But I have other plans now.

Thinking a high tea for a baby shower might be fun. If my garden is clean and neat by October! It's rushing up awfully fast!

I fell over the other day. That was a bad day.
:-(

Last night I woke up at about 1ish, got out of bed at 2ish, went back to bed aty 3ish, and then didn't *quite* sleep properly until I got out of bed. Not that I slept properly then either. :-)

I don't have much energy right now, and Saturday at Fe and Shay's for Aerin's birthday was an absolute blast. I had such a rocking time, just like I hoped I would, but really crashed and burnt on the way home.

Saturday was a Bad Day which required two naps to get a handle on. Vinnie has learnt he can open his door, and Saturday was the day he decided to do that instead of nap, and so got very tired and very hyper before bed time. I am glad though, since he can now let himself out when he wakes up, though he still prefers a cuddle and a hug while waking up. I love my bunny!

Tomorrow is ultrasound day. I was 12 weeks last saturday. 13 weeks this saturday. :-)

We almost had a party. It was going to be very nice. But then it all fell into a pile of poo when we realised we were supposed to be in Albany that weekend. Maybe later then. We were just feeling like sitting around and chatting with our friends.
:-)

Anyway, I am going to go and pass out in front of BB and read some more Terry Pratchett. I haven't written a thing since my mega hit. I just don't have the energy to think of what happens next!

Pics of the nursery. Mum and I finally went through and sorted out the stuff, and then Chesh came home and helped a bit too.

I'm getting sleep in three hour blocks because of this cough. Ugh! I went back to bed at 3, and got up at 6:30. I have a hot tea to ease my cough, and then a hot shower, and then will probably sleep a minimum of another 3 hours again! Mind you, mornings are prime sleeping time, so I might even get four hours instead of three. :-(

I got to bed at about 11, got up at about 1:30, headed for shower at about 2:30/3:00, and woke up again at 6:00...If i go back to bed at 7, I'll probably sleep until 11, or perhaps even until 1:00... and I think I might have trouble sleeping tonight too, you know that whole thrill scared excited terrified feeling you get when faced with a few hours of agonizing pain in front of your mother, husband, midwives and dr.... :-)

Ooo, and check out [livejournal.com profile] food_porn for a stunning star platter from Istanbul. Absolutely stunning. I'd hock Chesh for it.

Is it REALLY That hard to snip emails so that only the relevant two lines get used when you reply to things? I'm going to start hitting reply to the entire DIGESTS and not cleaning them up. Twits.

Wayyyyyy too stupid for this internet thing, I swear. Ooo, I need the "whole email" so I know what's going on. Yeah, fine, but when "the whole email" includes FIVE OTHER EMAILS some of which are in excess of 40 LINES and your STUPID MAIL PROGRAMME DOESN'T BLOODY WELL HIGHLIGHT REPLIED-TO THINGS CORRECTLY then maybe you should learn some manners.

Fuck.

And silly me managed to post a thank you to a different list for people trying to take a little more care.
*sigh*
:-)

My throat hurts. I have been using MSN to communicate with John all day. I want my voice back! Mum keeps laughing at me and saying "I guess you're not planning on screaming much, huh?" so I just give her dirty looks. :-)

She's planning on sleeping in on Tuesday and coming in at about 9ish, whereas John and I have to be there at 7 for the induction. Which means we have to get up at 6 something. Which means I'll probably be awake all night anyway, 1) because it's so scary and big and exciting and 2) because I fret the alarms won't work and stress about that instead and then get to sleep 20 minutes before I have to get up, or else get to sleep WHEN the alarm goes off. :-)

ok, enough whinging. I wonder if I can trick John into making me a herbal tea. *grin*

Saw the obstetrician today. She was very chirpy, and despite the headcold being worse, we were pretty chirpy too. :-) I even got to throw my knickers around the office! Now that's not something you do every day!
:-)

Inducement day is Tuesday. If we haven't already started. Her comment was "Everything is still in top position, so basically I think you just need one or two good contractions, and you'll be well on your way." Cool. Things have progressed further since the last meeting (now dilated 2 cm, and everything else is softened up nicely.)

I talk about feelings. Feeeeeeelings. Nothing more than .... Feeeeeelings.... )

I'm bored

I have a sore throat and a bit of a head cold. Hopefully, sweated it out during the small of the night.
Yuck.
Last thing I want to do is go into labour with a cold or flu!!

Vaguely surprised about it actually, there's been a bit of what I can cervical activity and stuff happening, was honestly surprised when I woke up at dawn. There you go.
:-)

Thinking caramel slice for breakfast. This is Naughty (tm). However, it is only 8:31 in the morning and the only reason I am up is because I am too hungry to sleep, plus the cervical activity could be described as mild pain. Between the two, no more sleepies for me! Maybe after breakfast *grin*

:-)

Had a lovely day today. Chesh stayed home and worked from home this morning, which meant I burbled happily at him about ... oo, you know, the usual things, the sky, the cats, the pool, the air, the clouds, the toast, the coffee, the feet... You know, eep and important stuff *grin* Then we went to the Ob, and had a chat. I'm about 1 cm dilated, and things are progressing and we discussed inducing, but as I'm not in any pain or discomfort and everything seems to be progressing normally she doesn't have the urge to interfere and if we're still not in labour by the next appointment, then we'll pick a date by then. And my cheif curry maker has fled to Sydney, the B*stard, but hey by the time he gets back I might need his services!! LOL! So, we're still in cruisy relaxed no hurry mode, an it's possible Dr K will be right with the prediction of an August baby, but who knows!!?? Any second now, I could....

Anyway, after that we ended up being unable to find anywhere to have lunch!! End result, we found a deli in Roleystone, grabbed some antipasto and soft drink and a toasted continental roll, an some chocolate, and had a picnic! It was so nice to be in the sun! When we've had the kid, I might organise a nice picnic down here, at a park which is right behind a Coles and Dewsons. This is great because if you run out of anything you just walk up to Dewsons and grab it!
