Anyway, we have 11 days to go. Give or take. Stay tuned because it could be any time now.

oh the pain...
We all know it's impossible to predict the timing of labor. However, here's what I do know. I am in pain literally anytime I walk. I think this started Friday, but it just gets worse. I feel like Jude and his 7+ lbs are just baring down on my pelvis as hard as possible. I walk around trying to hold my bump up just to try to alleviate some of this feeling. I am walking so much slower as of yesterday. I mean really slow. I could not keep up with Michael in home depot. I kept begging him to slow down. This is not a conversation we normally have. Normally, our walking speeds are compatible. Not anymore. I am assuming that this is part of the lightening of the baby drop, but I'm not exactly sure. Jude's foot hasn't left my rib cage-still- to give me that ability to feel less crowded. I do look lower though. And he feels lower. I don't know how close to having him we really are just because he has dropped so much more. I'm getting nervous though because reality is starting to set in. I keep reminding myself that God made women for this and my body can handle it. That usually calms me down a bit. What I am not sure I can handle is walking around the school with my kiddos. That will be miserable. Thank goodness today is a staff development day.
