3 days to go.

Updating my iPod today and getting ready for the hospital. Getting things in order. Packing and tidying. I guess the house is ready. Eh, I'm too tired to really work on it anymore. I do have to clean my bedroom, it's a mess again. (ahem Joshua). I have laundry too.

I had my last doctor's appointment on Thursday, I'm so happy I'm not tied to that place anymore. The doctor said the baby is going to be "a good size", what that means I'm frightened of. I hope he fits into all the clothes I have for him. I remember Norah lost weight and then gained it back, but I'm still hoping I'm not going out to buy new clothes in the first month. I'll cry.

Been having contractions all day, so I haven't been doing as much as I had hoped (including finishing this LJ entry). Some painful, some not. I'm always so confused as to what a real contraction feels like, but I know I'm not going into labor... yet. I don't want to miss that Easter buffet! So I watched TV and took a nap and delayed getting dressed until now. I do have to pick up Norah in about an hour.

I did spend way too much time on the internet this morning. So now it seems April 10th is sneaking up on me, because I just can't get stuff done.

Josh has two weeks off starting today, which is exciting. What is not exciting is that neither of us have vacation until next year. So the baby is our "vacation". It's a pseudo vacation.

I'm so happy it feels like we actually have this maternity leave under control. I'll need the extra help because of the surgery and taking care of Norah. We'll have more money and I'll get TDI eventually. The tax refunds will roll in soon and I'll feel better about money, seeing as how I just finished the last of my vacation and time off from work today.

I need to get moving. I probably won't post until after the C Section. I'll post pictures of the baby as soon as I can. We still need a name, by the way. Don't ask. I just can't decide.
