39 Weeks and 4 Days Along

Alright.. so I'm still waiting for this little guy to make his grand appearance and I'm starting to get impatient. It really doesn't help that Landon arrived at 37weeks 5 days so I've definitely never been this pregnant before nor had to feel like I was ever waiting for him to arrive.

I don't have much to complain about this pregnancy at all, which is great, but I'm just so ready to meet this little guy! All my back pain has dissapeared in the last week or so (probably because I stopped caring for the other little munchkins I was looking after), my tummy just feels heavy, I don't sleep the greatest, and Jeff and I both sort of feel like life is on hold at the moment.Every night we go to sleep thinking.. hmm maybe tonight is the night I'll wake up with contractions! :-p So yeah.. not exactly anything to complain about except that I'm getting anxious and want to meet him :)

I guess babys really do just come when they're ready:) I've been trying all kinds of things to help get my body ready but nothing has actually kickstarted labour yet. I've gone to a few sessions of induction accupuncture, been going for nice walks, doing squats, drinking red raspberry leaf tea like crazy, and taking homeopathic rememdies that are supposed to ready the body. Last night Jeff made a special Eggplant Parmesan meal that has a claim to fame of sending ladies in to labour within 2 days of eating it. I gobbled that up and then we went out to a hilarious movie to try that idea (a good gut buster might send you in to labour :-p ). It's not to say that these things arent getting the body ready because I know they are, which is awesome! Internal checks over the last 2 weeks have shown a really good change in the cervix and I"m over 2cm dilated which is great and should mean a shorter pre-labour! But come on body, pop this baby out!

Just maybe baby boy is waiting for his Aunty Amanda to arrive from Australia on the 1st of July :) It would be pretty cool for that to be the case, but really? Another week of waiting ?

I know I shouldn't be in such a hurry to start the crazy life with two munchkins.. I know it will be a bit chaotic at first. Also it could possibly be my last pregnancy.. which is sad to think that I might not ever have this awesome experience again. We'll see.. we're still thinking that there could be a number 3 baby Mottishaw, but we'll discuss that in a few months :-p

This is quite the rambling post! I had been meaning to blog for a few weeks now, but instead you get it all in one entry in a big blob.. sorry! I just had to get it all out :)

Well, that's all.. now we wait and enjoy life as a family of 3 for the last few days :)
