+3

A cold morning, only 25 with the sun well up- thick frost.

Acupuncture today after my half day of work, then a late lunch with sweet Tammy-- then...
home to rest I hope!

The TIRED is impressive-- almost as impressive as my desire to ignore it, work through it, fight it, do other things. I really suck at certain kinds of self care. Right now, I cannot afford to suck at it. So... Today I hope to actually rest, since sleep is sucking rocks right now, and lying down just feels bad in general.

Psychologically, I admit I feel better with an end date-- I do. I know my last day of work is tomorrow (half days this week), and I know that by early next week, the baby will be here. I have preferences still, strong ones, but I keep reminding myself of the most important goals that have driven me all this long way: healthy baby, healthy kate.

you sound very centered. Like mentally you are ready to face whatever path you need to to meet you dear, sweet baby. checking in with you, as I do every day, to see your update, to let you know that we're out here thinking of you, wishing you a wonderful labor in the way that you want it, but most of all healthy baby healthy kate.

Thinking of you and your dear husband, checking in daily to read your beautiful zen-like updates, and hoping all goes just as you always imagined it would.

I check back often hoping to see either no posts or baby post! Sending positive birthing vibes your way.

Emily Erin said...

Just sending you soothing and wholesome vibes full of patience with a bit of "baby come out" for good measure. Hugs!

Ok, first off, you are a goddess of patience, because I'd be doing jumping jacks by this point in time! Secondly - you sound wonderful, and I am so looking forward to your "take" on the next step of your journey.

yeah, what they all said....

i check frequently, but rarely comment. just wanted to wish you well in these final (or, rather, early) days. i'm always kind of half hoping for "no post" --- and that wonderful, tingly promise that comes with it, waiting for "THE post."

best of luck!
