Home With Baby J

We are home with Baby J. Monkey is still a little unsure what is going on. I am still a little groggy and worn out. I will write a more detailed report later. Baby J was 8lbs 10oz, 21 inches long.

Can't sleep

Can't sleep again. Things are hurting and I'm hungry. It's still too hot to get up.
Monkey is sleeping, husband is snoring lightly and I'm wide awake.

Still Not in Labor

So I'm still pregnant. Mom and Dad are coming tonight, not to wait for the baby but to pick my aunt from Ont. up at the airport and go to the internment of my grandfather's ashes. I can't go due to the closeness to my due date but most of the family will be passing through this part of NS on their way so I will try to visit.

Husband is diligently working away at dishes and laundry and various other chores. He cleaned out the cars this morning before it got too hot. It's the hottest day so far this year so I'm trying not to be too warm. Monkey's having a naked nap. She started screaming at me for no reason during lunch so I put her to bed when we were done. I think she's got another molar coming in. She was up a couple of times last night and she was not happy about it.

Little Brother is supposed to be job hunting this week. Hopefully he is because if he doesn't find a job soon Mom is kicking him out to come live here. He will be my nanny until he finds a job here.

Return of the Monkey

Nana is bringing back the monkey today. It sounds like they had a pretty good weekend. Lots of fun in the sun and being spoiled by Nana. Monkey got to go swimming, went on a shopping spree at the dollar store for toys and traumatized Uncle by screaming the whole time she was in his care.

Today is supposed to be hot. If it wasn't for the major road trip they are taking to return I would suggest a trip to the beach when Nana and Monkey get home but I have a feeling that both will be sick of cars by that point.

Still no labor. I'm getting the occasional tweak like I did with Monkey but not much more. I hate waiting.

It's 4am and I can't sleep. It might have something to do with the fact that I went to bed at roughly 9pm or the feet sticking into my ribcage again or the heartburn and backache that won't go away. Ahh, the final weeks of pregnancy. I'm so glad I'll never have to do this again.

Monkey is with Nana for the weekend and Husband works tomorrow but not Sunday. We might have to do stuff and go places if we can figure out what we want to do for our last baby-free days.

Baby J feels like she is getting ready but not ready enough. According to husband I'm supposed to go into labor on Thursday. I told him I'll try but the doctors have warned me that we're probably going to be late again. Yay!

I'm going to watch some TV and try to fall asleep on the couch.
