I wanted to quickly update even though I don't even have enough time to eat, it seems.
I had my doctor appointment today
See this awkward belly picture? This was today:
Doc said: "It could happen anytime!"
I'm feeling nervous at that because the last time he said that I went into labor
Course.... that was ON my due date and it better happen soon! (I thought)
Actually I think his exact words then were "any day". Whatev. Semantics.
Regardless, I'm nervous- not so much to have a second kid
but that I won't be ready with anything else around here.
I still have loads of editing to do, projects for school, more projects
coming up in school and finals.
But of course..... I can do all that and still have baby H in my arms.
I'd love that.
But I'd love to just sit and stare at just him and not a textbook.
So here's where we are:
dialated at a 2, 69% effaced, lost a few ounces- stopped gaining a few weeks ago)
I'm sure I'll see the doctor next week.
As for other news, my ring's whereabouts are still a mystery.
And later that evening I spilled OJ all over my IMac keyboard,
ruining it entirely.
That set my editing back a couple days.
Just the icing on the cake.
Although one night during a prayer, I was asking
to find my ring and suddenly in my mind I remembered
how Brody had climbed up on a toy, holding onto the counter
around the area my ring was.
So basically I got a strong feeling Brody did in fact scamper off with it.
Which in a way is comforting
but also worries me because it could be down a toilet or
stuck somewhere completely out of sight... we'll move out of this house and it'll still be here.
we took a drive somewhere (that post will come when I have more time)
and after eating our lunch in the car I got out to use a restroom somewhere.
I hadn't peed in like 5 hours, so unlike me.
When I made it back to the car
LOW AND BEHOLD- on my seat was an earring I had lost 6 months prior.
It's a big OL friggin dangly earring too!
(oh yeah the ones in the pic above actually)
So how in tarnation did I ..
ONE: lose it there and not notice
TWO: how did it just appear!?
So anyway that actually brings me comfort
that perhaps my ring will someday just appear. I'm still hoping for that.
And thank you guys for your sweet comments and concern
although a lot worse things can happen, I know.
