just a super quick post to let you all know that we’re still hanging out in pregnantland. zig’s definitely lower (yay), and when contractions get going, they’re way more intense than before…so much so, that at least once a day, i think this is it! and then they fizzle out and i say harumph. and then i scrub something. like the kitchen. or the walls of our entryway, where dogs like to lie with their dirty selves. basically, i’ve spent the weekend scrubbing all the places i feel likely to squat during labor, so i won’t notice dirt or funk in a critical moment. instead, i’ll smell lavender and baking soda.
and i’ve walked a lot. eaten some spicy food. thought about having the sexy time, but have fallen asleep instead. and i’ve snuggled my little girl a lot.
having a contraction now, actually.
going to check in with the midwife a little later this morning to see if a tincture/pumping sort of bootcamp is on the books today. god i hope so. i want to do something that at least gives me the illusion of pushing things along, you know?
over and out.
