Hmmmm....I think so!

Today I have......

-Shoveled 90% of the driveway (our drive way is a wrap around U shape)
-Done 4 loads of laundry (I have 2 more to finish)
-Cleaned 3 bathrooms
-Cleaned our room and the kids rooms
-Changed the sheets on the beds
-Vacummed the house
-Straightened my office
-Organized Abby's closet (that has all the baby's clothes/stuff in it)


I am thinking about Bissell cleaning the couch cushions and mopping the kitchen during lunch, but not sure if my back can take much more. I sure know if all this, including shoveling, doesn't get this baby to come out, I just might give up. :)
I have another appointment tomorrow morning and hopefully my doctor will rupture my membranes again (even though it was pretty painful all day, last time she did it) and then if this baby still decided to hang out, I will hopefully convince her to induce my by this Friday.
We are having Christmas Eve at our house and I have to be in the hospital for 3-4 days, for my VBAC, so I really don't want to miss Christmas Eve celebration and I don't want this baby to have a Christmas week birthday. Poor kid!


We found another one that we love and we are putting in an offer today. I don't want to say too much, or it might end up like last time and possibly fall through. I have my hopes high and fingers crossed.

 This all explains my absence from blogging. I am still reading your blogs and keeping up with your busy and eventful lives, I just have to energy to blog much myself. :)

You're keeping busy! I do hope the baby will come soon. Dylan was due the 23rd, and they planned and induction for the 20th. Didn't matter, since he chose November, anyway! ;) I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!
Good luck with this house!

Way To Go!!! I loved to Nest when I was pregnant with my Children! I still do it!! HAHAHA~! If you read my facebook every Saturday morning I am cleaning house and getting ready for the next week of work/School!!!

My Birthday is Friday the 18th and My daughter was due on Christmas Day and was born on the 22nd. It might be challenging to have a birthday this time of year but it adds a bonus present!!!

Wishing you luck !!

WOW! shoveling are a super mom :)
I'll be praying this house goes through for you, and the baby comes soon than later.
I cannot wait to hear the gender :)
and name!!!

You are nuts . . I hope I get in a nesting phase before this baby comes so I can have a clean house otherwise maybe my mother in law will do it for me :)

Hope the baby comes! Will have my fingers crossed for the house.

Good Lord, I have a feeling that baby is going to come out tonight!! I know you can't wait! ;-)

Kristi said...

yep it sounds like you are nesting for sure! My birthday is Christmas Eve, but my parents started a tradition of a "Half Birthday." On June 24th, we celebrate my birthday with a party, cake, presents, the whole birthday works. But on my real birthday December 24th we just do a cake and before I had kids we went to a movie as a family. It was a pretty neat idea, and it spread out the gifts for me as a child, and my parents pocket book! Just a thought of something you might do if you deliver too close to Christmas.

Good luck with both!!!!

Paige said...

I believe you are nesting for sure! Hopefully you'll have a baby by the end of the week!

Kelli W said...

Man...I wish I had some of your motivation! My laundry is not done and my house is a wreck! I hope the baby comes soon...I know you are ready for him/her to get here!

Girl, you make the rest of us look bad! :) Those of us that aren't pregnant and still don't have energy.
Praying for the house offer! Can't wait to hear all your news!! (Hopefully LOTS of news SOON!)

That is so great! I actually went into labor after shovling a drive way last year, I stopped shoveling around 3 pm, by 12 am I was in the hospital at 5 mins apart! Good Luck!

Becca said...

Ha! I love nesting. I posted all about my experience when pregnant with Aubrey. Let's just say that even our trash cans got cleaned! LOL! I hope that little one makes his or her appearance soon! I keep checking your twitter and facebook to see if anything is going on!

Good luck with the house! I hope you hear some good news soon.

Tanielle said...

I keep checking on ya, although I have not been blogging or even reading much myself. I'm anxious for us both!:) Hope all is well, and the baby is here soon! Waiting sure can be hard!

Andrea said...

Good luck on the house! The waiting is the worst part. Can't wait to hear how it turns out!

Stephanie said...

Oh goodness see I've been so out of it that I have missed out on everything that's going on with you.

I am praying that the breaking of your water works!!!!!

Christmas birthdays are tough-Caleb's is 2 days after Christmas and it's always crazy!!!!! I pray you're home for Christmas Eve-I remember that. I was so afraid that I was going to be in the hospital on Christmas but I was induced after since he didn't come on his own. Can't wait to hear the update!!!!!!
