Ohh bit negative this week eh. I think I've done a damn good job with keeping up with Riley throughout the entire pregnancy. While I may have slowed down a bit we still have managed to hit swim class & walk & do art projects & make massive messes. I couldn't even begin to feel guilty on Monday when I bought her the movie, Elmo Says Boo. We do not usually watch TV, let alone childrens shows when she is awake, mostly because they annoy me greatly. I was on my feet with pictures all morning & she was in the throes of teething & only took a 60 minute nap. So yes, I spent $9.99 on a 30 minute Elmo movie and we snuggled on the couch. I regret the $9.99, because cripes Sesame it was a 30 minute movie!! Could have at least given me an hour for that price.

My point being I seem to have hit a wall this week. Everything seems difficult. Really loading the dishwasher isn't hard but who wants to bend over to put the dishes in. Not I said the woman who feel like her ribs are at their breaking point. I knew this day was coming its an inevitable day in any pregnancy the DONE day. You just can't imagine being any more pregnant, walking hurts, sitting hurts, sleeping hurts. Every little thing is a sign of labor, yet nothing is. I don't think I'm quite there just yet but it's coming. I can feel it I'm quickly approaching DONE.
