39 Weeks, 1 Day: IS IT SO MUCH TO FREAKIN' ASK?!?!?!


We have no internet at home--we shut it off to save $50 a month for when Little Chicken arrives.  So I instead bring my laptop today and I go to Starbucks so I can get a frappuccino and watch Grey's Anatomy, Private Practice, and do some banking stuff online.  I order my frappuccino and THEN find out that their internet is down.  Are you kidding me?!  Well at this point I've already paid for the stupid frappuccino so I sit there for an hour and charge Lippy Laptop while I enjoy my drink and browse the internet on my iPhone.  So when I leave there, I realize, OMG I still have an hour and a half until I pick Kevin up from work, and that's if he's on time--which he never ever is.  Unless I'm not in the parking lot waiting at 5:30.  Then he's out right on the money.  Whatever.  Anyways, so I decide to go to Burger King and get some chicken nuggets instead so I can sit and at least watch one TV show and do my banking stuff.  Well there is ONE PLUG in the entire stupid building, and it's being used by some other hobo with a laptop who is NOT PREGNANT and probably has internet at home.  Asshole.  So I'm sitting here with my poor Lippy Laptop who is only charged to 45% (now it's at 24%).  So I go to and try to watch Grey's Anatomy.  But the INTERNET IS SO SLOW THE VIDEO WON'T STREAM RIGHT.  OMG OMG OMG OMG.  So I've now spent like $8 trying to get some fricken' internet, and I've consumed like, a million calories that I didn't need and I didn't even accomplish anything.  ARGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.

Besides that...

Little Chicken has a heartbeat still! Yay.  And he's wiggly.  And I'm fat.  Nothing new there.

Going to try to convince work to give me off Saturdays and Sundays.  If they won't, Friday will be my last day and I'll just start my leave early.

Still waiting on my flu shot.  Hoping to get it before LO is born.  If not I guess I won't get it...

Feeling crampy and achy.  Specifically my pelvis and hips.  My hoo-hoo is a little swollen--just puffy.  It looks like a fat vagina kinda.  Still feeling cervix stabs.  Carson's head is right in the right spot!  So that means it really could be any time.  No dilation yet.  70% effaced.  Getting my hair cut tomorrow, a prenatal massage on Friday, maybe some sex tonight....and spicy food??  I'm excited to meet him but nervous too!  Should be crazy!

Ok.  Gotta go get Kev now.

38 Weeks, 2 Days: 12 days till EDD OMG

So we're really down to the final countdown here!  So nervous, excited, anxious, disbelieving, scared, happy, sad, and about a million other feelings.  I love feeling little squidget wiggle around in my belly.  I love him so much.  He's so cute.  And wiggly.  I can't wait to see his cute little face and see what his nose looks like.  I can't wait to kiss his little toes.  He's going to be so cute.  I'm nervous about breast feeding.  I went to a class last week and it was so awkward holding a baby doll up to my boob.  Maybe that's because it was a baby doll, but I don't think so.  I think it's just something I've never done before.  I hope I'm good at it, but nervous that I won't be.  I'm still having a hard time about going into labor.  I'm not worried about the laboring part, I'm only nervous about the last 30-40 seconds when he actually has to come out.  Kevin and I started doing perineal massage 2 nights ago.  I think it will help.  I really really don't want to tear.  I don't do stitches.  Or tearing.  Or bleeding.  Or needles.  Or stitches.

I was having really sharp stabbing pains in my cervix area today.  Like, 2-3 a minute for about an hour.  I think it must have been the position the baby was in?  I tried to call the OB office but only got the answering machine.  And by the time I was going to try to call again the jabbing had stopped.  I was starting to think his hand was trying to come out or something.  It was a sharp enough pain to make me kind of bend over momentarily while I was walking.  You know, like a quick "ouch!" kind of movement.  After I sat for lunch though it seemed to subside a bit.

Took some belly pictures!

Ok I know they're all in front of the garage door, but it was the best background that I could find with such short notice.  My husband and I are literally NEVER home together when the sun is up.  So we had limited time and resources here, but wanted to take at least a few pictures before Lil' Chicken was born.  I'd seriously kick myself if we didn't get any good pictures.  

I'll update again soon!!
