9 Months and a full moon...
I took these pictures today for emily r. (you're welcome) and soon after started having contractions. i went to my already scheduled dr.'s appt and, although i'm only dilated to 1cm, the Non-stress test results, plus the fairly consistent contractions, plus the full moon tomorrow, plus the pending storm all had the dr.'s and nurses telling me that this baby was coming very soon.
well, after calling everyone i know and freaking them all out, i came back home, relaxed, drank some water, visited with some friends and now it's 11pm and the contractions have all but stopped now.
But i'm glad i got these pictures, cause it's been a while since i've stood in front of a camera, and i need this for posterity's sake :) And now i've caught up a bit on my journal/blog. I've finished 85% of the projects i wanted to. I'm a bit concerned by the fact that I currently have no ceiling in my kitchen, but that's my own fault for putting off this home-improvement project for so long!!!
I'm relieved the contractions have stopped. I would like to make it through Saturday without this baby coming. Reid has about a billion things at work he'd like to finish up, too. So, hopefully we can hold off just 72 more hours. I must be the only 9 month person in the world who's hoping not to come early!!!
