a little chat

Posted on

Sorry for all the new posts recently! I think I posted too quickly after my “best of…and questions” post and didn’t get a lot of comments. :-) So be sure to check that one out if you missed it!

I am about 2 1/2 weeks from my due date now. Yikes, it’s so close! I don’t feel ready at all, but at the same time I know I’ll be okay. I think part of me is in somewhat mourning of the end of the life Paul and I have had together these past three years. I mean, it’s exciting to enter this new stage, but at the same time I really enjoyed the last stage too. I did this same thing when we got married; isn’t that silly? I guess while I enjoy change, I also miss the stability of my routine.

I am in my weekly visits to the midwife now. It’s nice seeing her every week, because I have lots of questions. :-) I don’t know if I ever said what happened with my midwife leaving my old practice… I switched to a different practice that my friend recommended, and I’ve been really happy. She told me at my appointment last Monday that the baby has dropped head-down into my pelvis and so that’s good! I was wondering about all the discomfort I was feeling. :-)

My computer (the desktop) has been really driving me nuts lately; the most recent thing is Photoshop keeps opening for no reason and I can’t seem to get it to close. (Every time I close it, it automatically opens again.) Restarting didn’t help, so I decided to switch to the laptop. We’re going to reinstall Windows on the desktop soon and I’m so excited! The only thing we’re waiting on is a method of backing up all our my files. Paul had to go buy a bigger external harddrive for all my files – mostly, my pictures. Once that arrives I’ll put my files there then Paul will reinstall Windows and everything will be happy! I really hope this gets rid of my mouse issues and Firefox’s resizing of webpages, and this whole weird Photoshop thing that’s started recently. Oh and we found out that our USB problems were actually because of our USB port and not Vista. So we’re going to get another port thingy and that should be happy too.

Paul found our old webcam and I hooked it up to Skype because I anticipate that the grandparents will want to see the baby after she arrives. :-) I’ve been trying to find people to Skype to test and see if the camera is working okay, but I’ve been unsuccessful so far. I feel like it’s been hard to get a hold of people recently! End of summer is really busy – I know for us it usually is.

Our summer activities are winding down. Kids here in Atlanta started school last Monday, so it’s been quieter outside. We took a Dave Ramsey class this summer, and we only have a few classes left of that. The birth class we’re taking is winding down, too, which is good considering that the due date is so close! ;-) I actually am supposed to be researching topics for the class tonight to give a 5 minute talk on the pros/cons. But… well really, I haven’t changed since high school or college, and I am once again waiting until the last minute to start my homework. ;-)

Well I should probably go and start tackling my to do list. I was unable to sleep last night, so I ended up sleeping until noon and now I feel like I’m just starting to wake up and get moving! (It’s 2pm!) I need to make a few phone calls, and go buy stamps for thank you notes, and do my birth class homework. Other stuff can wait until tomorrow I think. Or midnight tonight, as that seems to be my new alert time.

  1. I was about to email you with a “Yikes, it’s so close!” email today… my 3rd of 5 friends expecting this summer had her baby today, and you’re up next :) Any day now, you’ll have another person in your family, and that’s mind-boggling. This post sounds much happier, and I’m super-excited for you.

  2. Pros and cons of what? Having a baby? I can give plenty on both sides of that one, heh!

    Also, Photoshop just must love you and want you to design something. That’s all.

  3. Kacie: Pros/cons of different things. I think I’m going to do the vitamin K shot and maybe the eye ointment. Look how it’s 4pm and I still haven’t started!

    Photoshop misses me. :-)

  4. You sound much better! That is great. I have 1 week and 6 days to go and the doc said today that she felt the baby’s head during the check and said I could go anytime now. Last week, he hadn’t settled into the pelvis. I was scared and terrified at the same time when I heard about the head.

    Hope you continue to feel better and get that never ending to-do list tackled. I totally know what you mean about to-do lists!
