16 days to go

And, yesterday I had consistent contractions from 3:30 - 6:30 every 20 and then 17 and then 15 minutes and then, they just stopped. It was exciting! But, obviously, those were just pre-labour or else I would have baby pictures posted here this morning lol! But nope. Baby is fine INSIDE, I am fine. I am OK with waiting. I will be 38 weeks on Saturday. Really, what is the rush.

Last night, I fell asleep upright on the couch, and I woke up to the lovely taste of puke in my mouth. This is one part of this pregnancy I am NOT enjoying. So, I got myself to bed, and slept with my head really raised up. And, thankfully I only got up a few times last night to go pee.

This morning, I feel great. And, the swelling in my legs is not so bad. Must be all of this chilly weather we have been experiencing.

Unfortunately, Cliff and most of the kids are getting colds. I am hoping I can stay healthy. I could not imagine having this baby, and then not being able to smell that newborn baby smell.

Congratulations Cathy and Cliff!

Well I really thought it was going to be a boy (I've only ever right a couple of times anyway!) I wish you the best of luck with Courtenay and hope she brings your family as much joy as Cameron, Claire, Carly, Catie and Caroline do!

Hugs,
Dawn
