No change yet. I was feeling the braxton hicks contractions pretty strong, and consistently yesterday afternoon, and I have to admit, got a little excited thinking that maybe they were real contractions. I thought maybe I would be on my way to the hospital sometime late last night or early this morning. But, they slowed down throughout the night, and I realized that baby Garrett was not quite ready yet to meet the world.
Josh and I were invited to our neighbors house for French Onion Soup and Chocolate Cake last night (for the second time that day, I know baby Garrett was loving it!!) Andy (Andrea) did a great job, and the soup, which is one of my favorites, was scrumptious!!! With yummy cheesy bread. Little Aubrey got to feel the baby move and kick, and she thinks that we should call the baby "Coco." We had a good time talking and laughing with friends and neighbors, sharing conversation and stories. We headed home, where I cleaned again (when is this little peanut coming?, I can only clean the house so many times!!) Then my hubby and I watched a scary movie snuggled up on the couch. It was a good day.
Josh is in St. Louis today, working hard for this little peanut and I (he asked if I thought I was going to go into labor today before he would leave, how cute:) so mom and I are headed out for a 'girl's night out' (before this peanut is here) to see "Confessions of a Shopaholic," the movie based off of one of our favorite authors, Sophie Kinsella. We absolutely adore her books. My mom and I often trade books we love back and forth, and we have done that with all of Sophie's books. I, myself, am a fan of Isla Fisher, so I am looking forward to this movie for many reasons.
Just waiting for this little peanut...I keep repacking our bags, re-organizing the baby room, and re-cleaning the house. Just waiting...Looking forward to a cocktail, a slightly smaller tummy too, and a change in clothes! I know Josh is ready to not get kicked anymore in bed by this little fire cracker!
Will keep you updated!
