Quick Takes Volume 16
I'm sort of in shock that the baby is due in two days and she still isn't here. How did that happen?
I'm doing well accepting the fact that the baby missed the October 1st school cut off date. I've had a few people tell me about how they or someone they know has circumvented the system so I suppose it's something we'll be able to do if we need to.
I'd be lying if I said I wasn't concerned about the prospect of delivering a real full term baby. I mean, how big is this baby going to be? Yeah, I'm freaking out a little. Oh and the midwife told me when I go into labor she expects things will move very fast. That's nice to hear, but I hope things don't move so quickly that I wind up being a headline for delivering my baby in the Target parking lot or something like that.
I went out yesterday and today and once again stocked up on food and other household items. It's not fun to do this task more than once in anticipation of having the baby. I pretty much had to repeat the process I completed nearly three weeks ago.
Once again I need to get the house nice and clean. If I can find the motivation and energy, I'd like to clean the bathrooms and kitchen today. I'm simply not feeling up to the task.
I've reached a point where I'm not really willing to do anything to try and put myself into labor. I spent two exhausting weeks trying pretty much everything to have nothing work. I'm sort of over it now. My focus now has been on just getting the house in order and trying to get some rest here and there. You could say that I pretty much lost all of my motivation.
I've come to the conclusion that having a child who takes on lots of extracurricular activities is exhausting. This becomes more so when the child doesn't want to be bothered with things like studying, homework and school projects. I need Madeline to complete a math project that is due on 10/12. I would love for her to finish it before I have the baby so I won't have to worry about it.
