Life in Joisey

I am kind of in a funk today. Feeling overwhelmed and stressed. My hormones must be out of whack or something. I need a nap. I am going to spend the morning going through 2 boxes of baby stuff that my friend Crystal in TX sent me. What a blessing. I actually cried when I opened the boxes. For some reason it hit me, I AM HAVING A BABY. I mean I have know it all along but it just seems so much more real because the time is getting closer. I still have so much to do to prepare but yet need to take it easy and then on other days I have no energy.
We have a huge production at church on Saturday. Kiarrah will be dancing with her Creative Movements Class. They are dancing to Zipadee Doo Da and she will be a sunflower. The boys will be animals. Also some of Dominic's art work will be on display. He is extremely creative and already has his own palette as his instructor says. We are so blessed to have an Art's Academy through our church. Reynaldo's drum class will not be doing anything in the show this year. Maybe next year. He is gonna make a cute little mouse though.
I will be sure to take pictures.

Sweet Potato Still Cooking

I had an appointment with the Dr. Monday. Everything looks good except the fact that my BP is up a little and I am not getting any rest and I am overdoing it. ( Ya Think? I have three kids and a house to take care of?) Anyway We are looking at August 10th as C section Day. I was given the major scare tactic of taking it easy until week 34. He said there was a whole floor at the hospital dedicated and full of women like me who are stubborn and don't take it easy. If I am in the same position when I go back on the 25th I am being admitted. I think it worked. I am scared and trying to obey. Gracie Girl is head down. My fluid is ok, cervix length is good but placenta is still very low. She is still beating me up big time. She loves to move around. I am having a lot of pelvic pressure and Braxton Hicks. Just pray that I can get through the next few weeks. The kids are out of school on the 26th so then life gets crazy.
