It is the weirdest weather today- beyond warm plus dark and rainy...
all surfaces sticky with moisture in the house
steamy

I am in a t-shirt, jeans and bare feet...Yesterday's big tired persists today- but I am giving myself permission to move slowly.


Last night when Doug got home, we walked to the end of the road and back-- phew! my belly felt like it weighted a million pounds (not its usual) and me? one big braxton hicks contraction (or so it seemed) the whole way. I was thinking it meant something, and it probably does.
It means things are getting ready to get ready.

Cat on the windowsill
me, here, and a day of research ahead of me (which I really enjoy)-- so, if I can settle into that, all will be well.

(Weird how some days I feel impatient, and others, I just feel like my more usual me)

PS Emily Erin--you can email me at icantwhistle at yahoo dot com BUT for goodness sakes, comments make me happy! no need for stuff!

The calm before the storm? Can you tell I'm ready for your baby to be born? I'll calm myself down....all in good time.

Oh, Kate, what a lovely place you are in at this moment. I am so very happy for you. Wishing you love and joy for the big day, whenever it is!

Continuing to read and hope that all goes super smoothly. Those moments of peace before the baby arrives are so wonderful, just contemplating the last months and the miracle that is about to happen. Sending much love and many prayers that the next days are easy and wonderful.

Glad that you are feeling peace-- it was when I got to that point where I'd gotten past the frantic "I need to do X before baby comes" that she came... cheering hard from here, so happy that you are so close!

It's such a wonderous place to be... "ready" in every conceivable way (and of course still wondering if you'll be the parents you want to be... but you will so don't worry), and enjoying the last moments of being two-as-one, the unknown that will be known (a little) soon. Thank you for posting daily. As soon as there's a silence, you know exactly what we all think.
