Happy HUMP Day :)

Well, this has been my first few days of maternity leave.  I am EXHAUSTED! ha!  I've worked harder since I've been off work than I did when I was working AND coming home to get things done.  Shelby and I decided to do our "spring cleaning" this week so that it would be done before Tristan gets here.  In some ways it was a good decision, but in others I think we should have done this earlier.  I'm so afraid he's gonna be here and I will be more exhausted than ever because I never took a break before he came! ha ha.  

I have a Dr Appointment tomorrow.  I'm guessing it will be my last one before Tristan comes.  At my appointment last week, I had my membranes stripped and then had another wonderful blood pressure fiasco to go through.  My appointment was at 11:30 and I didn't get to go home until after 4:00 pm that afternoon.  Completely unnecessary in my opinion, but I'm not the Dr.  I know it's better to be safe than sorry, but it doesn't make you feel any better when you're sitting there for hours!  The membranes were not the most comfortable thing I've been through..and Tristan STILL isn't here.. but that's OK.  For some people it works and others it doesn't! I'm one of the unlucky ones I guess.  ;)

I am scheduled to be induced on Monday April, 20.  My appointment is for 7 am.  I really wanted Tristan to come on his own.  I wanted to see if I was able to go through labor without an epidural.  If I'm induced I know I'll be begging for that epidural.  I just want an easy, short, somewhat pain free labor.  Is that too much to ask?!  ha ha  Today is Wednesday and there are still a few days before Monday gets here.  Maybe he'll surprise me and come on his own.  I sure hope so....  I just want him HERE because then I know he's safe :)

I'm gonna go lay on the couch and watch a movie with Shelby.  I hope to have some good news to report tomorrow!  Who knows.. maybe I'll have a baby tomorrow!  ha ha (I say that everyday)

Hope everyone is having a WONDERFUL week!!
