That means we'll have yet another July birthday - that makes Brad, ER, my Mom on the 28th, and the baby possibly on the 29th. If I happen to go into labor or something happens that means I have to deliver before this Friday, I'll have a C section at that point. So any way you look at it, this baby is coming on or by the 29th. My hospital bag is packed and we're all ready to go!
I'm happy the end is coming and wondering if we're actually going to make it to then because sometimes I feel like this baby is going to drop out of me. I know, if only it were that easy, right? I've been having a lot of Braxton Hicks and while not true contractions, because I can still talk during them, they are getting very intense and uncomfortable. It's always an odd thing when you see your stomach moving all over the place!
Thursday was busy too, as it was ER's fifth birthday. We had wanted to take her to the lake but it was just too hot for me. We went to Chuck E. Cheese instead, Noodles & Co. for dinner, and then to Barnes & Noble for a sweet treat with our Kid's Club coupon. Friday I took her to my non stress test at the Perinatal Assessment Center and thank goodness the test went fine and we didn't have to go to triage. We came home and then were off again to meet friends at our favorite indoor climbing place. Saturday I had enough energy to take out all the baby fabric I've collected and ironed it all out. Finished some projects too! The weekend ended with meeting my family for lunch yesterday, to celebrate my mom's birthday early. Now I am planning on taking it easy and doing some small projects around the house in preparation for Friday!
