I live on a largish island,
with my husband, our cat, and our tiny baby boy.
Will you post pics?!100% - but so far every time I sit down at the computer, Armand needs a feeding 2 minutes later and I don’t actually get a chance to type or do anything. It’s actually insane. See. Now he’s awake again. How?!?!
Christa had her baby!!
The cat food is here lol
And the silly cat just ignores him! Like I’ve never seen her avoid a person or object like this before - she barely sits with us anymore because Armand is always with us. I wonder what the poor thing thinks about him.
Awe. We have Willie’s grandmother’s (the one Emma’s named after) chair. I love it.What wonderfully random family furniture for us to both get. And both shipped across the continent at one point or another, which I find amusing.
I ate a bunh of pineapple, due to cravings, and my water broke the next day.That’s really funny. I don’t think any of my cravings have been nearly that helpful.
Unclear on when to have the doula come over - she lives like 30 minutes away and I feel super guilty about making her sleep on my couch if nothing happens tonight, but she’s insisting that she’s rather be here too early than too late.
Contractions were 5 minutes apart while I was out walking, but are back to 9-12 minutes apart now that I’m sitting at home. I don’t want to rush it along - I want to sleep.
Dear mother, please don’t try to nag me into going to your party tonight after I’ve told you that I’m too crampy and tired to go (and 9 days past my due date, so I don’t see why I need an excuse anyways). Don’t ask for details about what I’m feeling physically. And when I provide them, even though I’m uncomfortable doing so, don’t tell me my symptoms “might not be anything” and “maybe braxton hicks”. I didn’t tell you I was in labour - I told you I don’t feel up to your party. Fucking respect that.
2:20am - contraction too painful to sleep
3:30am - contraction too painful to sleep
4:40am - contraction too painful to sleep
And every time one wakes me up, I handle it like a total spaz, thrashing around and fighting it like it’s a leg cramp that I can rub away. Why am I my least relaxed while I’m sleeping? Why do these suck so hard but they’re still so damned far apart? Why am I awake right now?!
