The Journey Continues....

Well the past 24 + hours has been pretty rough. I started getting really fatigued with body aches yesterday afternoon. By evening it progressed in to fever and all that. I went to the dr and luckily it is NOT the flu. Apparenlty it is something called an adenoid virus. The doctor didn't seem too worried. I think that luckily with me being so close to delivery, there is less risk involved. I'm just trying to keep fever at bay, stay hydrated, and rest. I took today off for rest and drs appts. I'm taking tomorrow off too.

Unfortunately, Michael came down with the same symptoms this weekend. We have the keys to the apt we are subletting in Lewisville for the next 2 months until our house is ready. We can move in any time, but with us both feeling so badly, we'll have to wait at least a little bit for that to happen. Boo!

I also went to my weekly obgyn appt today. Nothing really to report. A couple of the nurses were saying how surprised they were they I hadn't had Jude yet. Too bad this baby has no desire to come out! One asked me if I was having contractions yet. Luckily, I can say that I am. At some point during the day I will have 10-30 minutes of contractions and then that will be the end of it. The nurse kinda got crestfallen when I said that because apparently thats not enough to be getting close. Again, boo. I know I'll be 38 weeks tomorrow, but I honestly don't think he's dropped at all. He STILL feels like he's camping out right in my lungs. It becomes more miserable every day as he grows so much. No one can really call it, because all babies seem to do things their very own special way. We shall see, but for all of you anxious fans out there- you don't appear that much closer to saying 'Hey Jude Dylan'....
