still moving, still waiting

38 1/2 weeks pregnant - on the treadmill!

Yesterday there was no school due to icy roads.  Rather than slog the kids out the door I kept them in their jammies all day long and we played, baked and snuggled.  It was a good day.  I really wanted to get some exercise so in the morning I hopped on the treadmill for about a half hour.  I have no idea how many miles I did, but that just simply wasn't the point.  I mixed up walking and running and it just felt so good to move.

My due date is 9 days away now and to be honest carrying all this weight around is getting to be HARD.  I have lots of energy in the early part of the day and then by around 3PM I start to crash.  By 6PM yesterday I was an emotional wreck.  My husband Robert called me when he was on his way home from work and I was short with him.  He was asking me to make decisions about our dinner and I just couldn't handle it!  I texted him after we hung up saying sorry that I am such a mess and thanking him for putting up with me.  When he came home I was finishing up putting the kids to bed.  I came downstairs after tucking them in and there was a vase of a dozen hot pink roses on the counter...these flowers have brought so many smiles to my face in the past 12 hours.  I am so grateful for the man I married.  Oh and he also brought home some Ben n Jerry's ice cream which is a seriously sinful treat but one I am not going to feel any guilt over!

So...still trying to keep busy and distract myself from the waiting game!  I covered one dining room chair the other day...maybe I will tackle the other 5 today?  I go to the doctor this morning - I am looking forward to it!
