Still here with not a lot of sleep!- (revised)

I am still here. If any of you are wondering where the heck I've been, I am still with child. If you are not wondering than it means you are super busy with your kids just like me. Plus being 37 weeks pregnant does make my blog writing so not important or even interesting so why bother?! My friend Kelly with four kids tells me that once the baby comes I will sleep better and feel better. I am beginning to believe her. I can't get comfortable at night or any other part of the day. When I do fall asleep at night, I have weird dreams. REALLY WEIRD dreams! And of course I would love, love, love to be in labor right now like I was with Ava Beth at 37 weeks but that's okay. Instead I will just enjoy these last days of pregnancy and if he comes before the 22nd (my scheduled induction), great! If not, that's good too. Soon I will be a mother of three children! Yikes!

One strange thing that happened at my check up today was I lost five pounds in one week. Usually I gain five pounds in one week at this point. Doctor wasn't concerned so I think I will just be happy that I don't weigh more than my husband and I can still easily wear my wedding ring! Yippee! He gave me a prescription for sleeping pills to take when I need one. So the kids are staying at Jeremy's mom's tonight and I plan on taking one so I can sleep!! Maybe, just maybe, I will sleep like a baby without feeling my baby jab me in the ribs all night. :)My Doctor leaves for Vegas tonight and won't be back until Sunday night. He said that HE wants to deliver this baby, not anyone else so I have to wait. Then Mom leaves Sunday for a week long cruise and won't be back until the 21st. So I better NOT go into labor now. I'm content with being uncomfortable for another full week. :) I think. No, I am. I think I can handle it. No, it will be fine. The week will FLY by! Right? Right. It's all good. I will soon miss this, I KNOW I will. I always do. I'm gonna enjoy this!

So if you are sick of hearing about this pregnancy and sick of seeing pictures of me, too bad. Pretty soon you will be hearing all about baby Ezekiel and seeing his picture! For now, it's still all about me! (Right Mom?) I can be the princess for a few more days. But I am looking forward to wearing every single pair of two inch heels or platforms I own! You know I am not feeling that great when you see me wearing flat shoes. (Right Tiffany?)

And before I leave you so I can lay my lazy butt (although my house is clean and laundry is done!) on the couch and play hand held tetris while the kids sleep, let me say I have some great friends and family! Last week my friend, Tiff, came over all the way from her part of the metroplex and brought me my favorite fast food, Arby's. Before that my cousin, Cara, gave me an amazing bracelet that I have always wanted with all THREE of my kids names on it. I love it! Then my fairy God mother, Kathy, came and cleaned my entire house and did laundry. My Mom took all of Ezekiel's stuff that I needed monogrammed to her lady and it's done! My friend with four children has told me to bring my kids to her house on Friday so I can have some time alone (I think she is crazy for offering and really I am just going to hang out with her and play with their new karaoke set up. I mean who needs time alone!? Singing will do me some good!) My friend Laura is coming over tomorrow and we are doing lunch and my Mother in law is taking the kids tonight and Friday night! Maybe I can get some more attention next week! When else does a gal get this much doting on and attention? Needless to say, I love it! Thank you friends! Thank you family! Now if I could only get Oprah to show up with a limo for a day at the Four Seasons and Paula Deen to show up with some fried chicken!

***Revised*** My friend Kelly Ann called and wants to bring lunch this week! My Mom just said she got me the brown velour jogging suit I had been wanting for my going home outfit! (non maternity!) I am so excited!!! So I had to come back and brag on Kelly Ann and my Mom some more. I am loving this attention! :)

Well, it's off to dream land again. My last dream had Condoleeza Rice delivering baby Ezekiel while she talked to my mom on the cell phone trying to make sure she got to the hospital in time. But my mom was driving Regis Philbin to the airport in Knight Rider's car, Kitt. I don't know what happened after that! Pregnancy dreams or am I just crazy? Probably both!

I'll second that, you look great!

I've been praying for you and will continue to.

Sounds like you have some great friends around to help. I'm sure the bracelet is beautiful. I've always wanted one like that too.

I am holding my baby cracking up! And I thought I had some silly dreams... I know how you feel though. Enjoy it b/c I am so missing not feeling little kicks and the hick ups!!! You look do amazing girl!!!!

You're just adorable, Amanda. I knew you would be. :-)

At 6:04 PM, Blogger Dee said...

You are still glowing and beautiful!!!! I am praying for your comfort my friend - or at least as much as you can experience until baby Ezekiel is born. I know you are so thankful for the wonderful friends you have ... you are blessed my friend!

I think I speak for most all of us when I say we aren't tired of hearing about your pregnancy, it is about you and YES! you can continue to steal that spotlight - it's all yours. And then when Ezekiel is born --- you can talk nonstop about him as well, we'll enjoy it - I promise!!!! :)

Enjoy relaxing and pop in from time to time just to let us know how you are!!!!!

Love ya girl!!

Amen about the flats - I am the same way!! Terrible on our backs (since I was at the chiropractore today) but I just hate flats!!

Prayin' for you!

I was really happy for you and all the help until I got to the non-maternity coming home outfit and then I got really jealous. Wow. You're going to be able to wear non-maternity when he's two days old? Sigh. Not me. :) Good for you though.

sleep well!

I simply could not have been driving KITT. Kitt was NOT a corvette and you know a corvette is my DREAM car. Oh well, it was YOUR dream -- not mine. I can't imagine me talking to Condi. You really need to sleep.

You need to get a canvas -- they are 30% off at Hobby Lobby this week and paint a proclaimation to hang by your bed like I did.

"I laid me down and slept: and awaked; for the Lord sustained me.

This is marked in my Bible: Psalm 3:3-5. There is a song written about it. It goes like this.

Thou, oh Lord, are a shield for me. My glory and the Lifter of my head.

I cried unto the Lord with my voice and He heard me out of His holy hill.


I love you.

Thank you for your comments but I must address Kelli. I don't want to mislead anyone! :)

Kelli, my NON MATERNITY OUTFIT is a a velour jogging suit. It's my Old Navy tradition. This is what I wear after every baby is born. But, it's ELASTIC (key word)and not my normal size by any means (much bigger size). So please, please, please don't think I turn skinny over night. NO WAY! Actually, I don't ever turn skinny. I stressed the non matrenity in the post because I am sick of maternity clothes! I think at the end of pregnancy, every woman just gets uncomfortable with everything and longs for the pre prego body. I know I do. I am just looking forward to having my ribs to myself. :)They sure hurt at the moment!

At 6:42 AM, Blogger Amanda said...

Mom, we sang that song at FOJ! Remember! I have it in the car and I think I will go get it. Good idea!

Yes Mom, you and Condi! I love her!

Oh and again, thank you ladies for telling me I look adorable and all of the above. You keep me going! I will need you when I am trying to loose baby weight! :) The treadmill is already shouting my name. I can hear it!

That makes me feel better. :) I'm almost 33 weeks and have had a good time reading about your pregnancy. Can't wait to get back into real clothes either!
