The Hardest Part

You know what I find the hardest part to deal with at 40 weeks? (besides waiting) This time I've been having lots of braxton hicks ('practice' contractions) and even though I know it's good because my body is getting ready for the real thing. The hard part is that every time I have 2 or 3 in a row it gets me super excited, thinking 'this may be it'... and then things stop! This morning I had about 3 or 4 (between 5:30 - 6am), but nothing since then... *sigh* I will try to post a little something every day or every other day so that you guys know when I'm not around for a while that baby has probably made an appearance :) So anyone have any suggestions of what to do while waiting for baby's arrival?

Run up and down the stairs, lol :) I did it a bunch of times and went into labor that night with Emery.

As to how to pass the time, that's a great question. If I get bored, I bake. Maybe fill up your freezer with lots of yummy treats so you won't feel like you have to do it once baby arrives.

Some say resting and relaxing helps, like getting you mind off it, maybe a spa day!!

hehe.. can you imagine me running up and down the stairs :) lol.. although I suppose it's worth a try :) hmmm.. a spa day sounds good although not probable since my husband is working a lot right now :) I may just have to settle for a bubble bath and getting my nails done :)
