She's Still Rather Cozy In There

Still pregnant, of course & despite my discomfort, today has been rather productive. At 10am I went with my Gramma to do some last minute shopping & on the way we dropped my poor sick boy off at Emerg (we don't have a family doctor) where he was diagnosed with Bronchitis (as I'd predicted). Thankfully, he now has some antibiotics & the next four days off of work to rest & get better. I'm also so relieved that I don't have what he has -- his throat hasn't been sore at all, and that is basically my only symptom. Today my throat is a little raw & I have a ticklish little cough -- all completely manageable. The less manageable part is all of the aching that I feel from my little one being so far down in my pelvis, yet seemingly so far from making her debut.

Like mother, like daughter -- she's already showing her stubborn streak.

While the boy was in Emerg I shopped around for some last minute baby items (like a bathing support for the bathtub/sink, some washable nursing pads, more receiving blankets, more washcloths & a sweet little sheet for her bassinet -- brown with little polka dots). I think that I am finally happy with everything I have & the manic nesting can stop.


I have decided that today should be my last day of productivity (of errand running & shopping, that is). I think that from now on I need to stay relaxed & calm with a cup of tea in my hands at every moment. I will still clean my house as my OCD tendencies will lead me to do, but really, I find that a little soothing in its own right.

I can hardly believe it's almost 5pm already. Where did my sleepy Sunday go? Perhaps I'll enjoy some more raspberry leaf tea & bask in the remaining hours of the weekend. I hope you can all do the same.

Bye for now.

I love your nesting impulses! That was always so much fun, and amazing how exciting to buy a little sheet or washcloths... sweet memories, my baby's 3.5 already...

I love getting such a thrill out of those little things ^_^ Like finding a new little onesie, or a cute pair of socks. Silly & cute.

Hope he's ok! What a horrid time for him to get so sick... :( Stay healthy yourself and get that rest you're talking about.

Take care.

Thanks, I will! I just have a miserable sore throat/cough thing going on, but nothing compared to the boy poor and his hacking away :(

It seems like one can never have enough blankets and sheets! I just keep imagining how fast they will get dirty and keep buying more :)

I am also OCD about cleaning my living space and also find it very therapeutic. I don't plan to stop at any time! haha.

I hope the boy gets better soon!

Awe thanks ^_^

Yeah, there's something about cleaning that just puts me into some zen state... call me crazy, but I love it.

Aww. I hope he gets to feeling better very soon! And also hope you don't end up with it.

My dear new found friend... would you like to come and clean my house? I promise to keep you in a zen mode for a good week or so. =D

Keep you & baby safe and have a peaceful, restful night.
