It's something like 16 days until my due date.
It's so exciting and I keep waiting for that scared/worried feeling everyone keeps talking about, but it hasn't come!
I'm not scared or worried at all.
Unexplainably (is that a word?) intense labor pains? Bring it on!
Squeezing a human head out of my body? Let's go!
Brad and I are both just so ready for her to be here.
We love her so much and we can't wait.
This blog won't be very long because I guess i'm just not in the mood to type, but I thought I should at least give a little update.
My friends in our ward threw me a baby shower on the 16th and it was lots of fun.
We played baby games and opened presents and ate sweets.
I think decorating and thinking up things to go along with the theme "She's Ready to POP!" with Cynthia and Stephanie was probably the most fun.
I love being able to use my creative side sometimes.
We also had a girl's night with many of the same girls who came to my shower.
We went this past Saturday and saw Letters to Juliet (which was really good) and then had ice cream at Dairy queen afterwards.
I love my girl friends up here!
Last Friday was yet another check-up.
They did my group b strep test the week before, so I found out at this last appt that it was negative.
The doc also told me that my rib probably isn't cracked (Um, yes it is dude. This is NOT just "ligament pain" or "the baby kicking." Trust me, I have already experienced what those feel like.) and told me to just take Tylenol.
I think i've taken so much Tylenol this pregnancy that i'm becoming immune.
Can't you tell me some natural ways to help rather than just telling me to take drugs whenever I have a pain?!
I've had some "my body is preparing for labor" signs the last couple days, but because some people are apparently easily grossed out, I won't share them with you.
Funny thing, I posted on Facebook about losing a certain "plug" and someone in the ward interpreted that as "Kim's water broke" and because Brad and I didn't make it to church yesterday, the Relief Society presidency assumed I was in labor at the hospital and was going to pass around a sign up sheet to make meals for us!
I guess some of my friends in the ward were like "No. Kim would have told us if she were in labor. She would have texted us" and stuff along those lines.
And it's so true!
So no worries to anyone.
Once i'm headed to the hospital, I'll probably mass text it and Facebook it on Brad's phone. Haha.
Brad's had an AWFUL toothache all weekend, and it just makes me want to cry.
I've never seen him so pitiful and their really isn't anything I can do.
He's been using orajel and taking pain meds but they really don't help too much.
Luckily, he was able to make a Dentist appt for tomorrow, so hopefully they can fix him up.
We can't really afford the dental bills right now, but that's what paying tithing and having faith are for, right?
Speaking of which, Brad has an interview at some place later this week, will probably meet with his advisor about an internship sometime this week, and got a call from Meleleuca today about an application he submitted.
Finding a job in this town is so hard, so please keep us in your prayers!
I guess that update was longer than I thought it would be.
Hopefully my next post will be more exciting or interesting though.
