1 Week and 2 Days - Blogging Catchup... (aka No Baby Yet)

So you know how I had said that I wanted to blog until my son is born? HAHA. Fail. I meant to blog over the weekend. I truly did. I even have the blog post titles to prove it! Saturdays was going to be "Pop Pop Trickle Trickle" and Sunday's was going to be "Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes". I might as well go ahead and post now what I had meant to post then! (don't you just love how I managed to turn 2 days of blogging now into 3 :)

Saturday - "Pop, Pop, Trickle, Trickle"

This past Saturday was fairly uneventful for our family. We are still in the mood to just hang around the house, do a little playing outside, and a little cleaning inside. Bobby was awesome and helped me out soo much with the floors! He vacuumed the stairs for me and holy moly! I swear, just the dirt from the stairs filled up almost the entire container on our vacuum! Our house stayed fairly sparkling until the next morning and by now its back again to how it normally looks... ;)

Around lunchtime Bobby took off to help out with our church rummage sale for just an hour. Wouldn't you know it, 10 minutes after he left and I was sitting at our computer I felt 2 little pops "down there" and then a funny trickle. (sorry for the TMI). I was super excited for all of 2 minutes until nothing else seemed to be coming out. I called a friend of mine who is a nurse and another who I know had broken her water with both of her kids to see what they thought. It was discussed at length and decided that I should just wait and see. Ugh. I knew that this was a good idea though as I didn't really want to go all the way over to L&D triage just to be sent home right away. We went on to a small birthday party later that night where I still had high hopes but alas, nothing!

Sunday - "Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes"

I know that as babies get bigger and have less room to move around they do more twisting and turning, but OH MY WORD. This child of mine has no concept of that most of the time. He is either sleeping like crazy or moving like crazy! Most nights the TV in our house is barely watched. :) If I pull up my shirt when the baby is doing his acrobatics, Bobby and the boys will literally pull up a chair and just stare at my stomach! He is all sharp angles these days. He pushes his little feet up and outward and pokes out his elbows and knees. The first couple of minutes its entertainment for me too and I'm super excited to have such a strong, big, healthy boy. But, after that couple of minutes it just starts to get painful! The boys (including Bobby) also love to talk to him through my stomach. It's soo cute because now the baby will respond with a kick or a punch usually!  

I will be very thankful when it's next Wednesday and I'm holding my little squirmy wormy in my arms! I'm not sure that I'll ever be able to swaddle this baby tight enough that he won't be able to fight his way out of! I can't wait to find out if I'm right!

I know how you feel about the cleaning. It seems like we clean the whole house one day then the next it's back to being a mess. It frustrates me :(

Haha I can't wait to see Max doing big tricks like that. We can see my stomach move when he kicks or stretches but it's so quick! You can't really make out if it's a foot or hand yet!
