me: walks up to register and starts to unload cart
Target lady: "Whoaaaa!"
me: to myself (is she talking about my groceries or my belly?)
Target lady: "You've dropped!!!"
me: to myself (what? How can she tell? I've never seen her before!)
Target lady: "Looks like it'll be any day! When are you due?
me: "six weeks from now. April 2"
Target lady: "Well it'll be sooner rather than later"
me: "Well hopefully not too soon! I've been on bedrest for the past 2 weeks for contractions. Hopefully she'll hold out a few more weeks!"
Target lady: "Well rest assured...if it happens at Target, I am perfectly adept at handling the situation!"
So if I go into labor at Target, we've got it covered!!!
But seriously, I enjoy having these little conversations here and there with perfect strangers about our baby! It's fun seeing how excited people get about new life! I want to share our daughter with the world!!! I'm so excited about her!
35 weeks tomorrow! I have been doing good contraction wise until last night. I made us some dinner and then sat down and they were every few minutes or so! I chugged 3 pitchers of water and layed down. Andrew got home and I seriously thought we were going to be calling the on-call doc. I even called my unit to see who was on. But after about 2 hours they spaced back out. I had to eat dinner laying down...that was interesting! Am I going to just blow once I go back to work? We will see!
Oh and I just have to share this. My mom's friend Aunt Kelly called on Tuesday night and insisted that she was going to bring Andrew and I dinner! I had some ingredients to cook dinner, but it was just one of those days where I just didn't feel like it! My back had been hurting all day and I'm just generally getting more uncomfortable! So it was a perfect night for dinner to be provided for us! So she showed up around 6:30 with a huge bag FULL of food! We had homemade stuffed pork tenderloin, these yummy seasoned green beans, roasted potatoes, rolls, and EASTER CANDY!!!! It was soooooo good! But what made it even better was that someone took time out of their day to do this for us! I was just thinking about how much it meant to us for her to do that. We will definitley try to "pay it forward" someday! Also in the bag was a little box with 2 precious baby girl outfits and a funky hairbow clip! Aunt Kelly is too much!!!! I'm so thankful for her!
