I’m awake. Barely.

Last night, I peed every hour and a half. Every. Hour. An. A. Half.
Yesterday was a bit of a booger of a day (yes, I said booger) because I had my OB appt and so had to be carted to my parents’ house at a time when I am usually sleeping. Once there, of course I had a nice visit with the ‘rents, and ended up never actually getting back to sleep. Then, it turned out that Matt was done with work early, and was home in time to take me to my appt, so there was really no need for me to have been at my parents’ house anyway. But that’s ok, because we ended up doing laundry and I finally got in a nap.
One of the things we had to do yesterday was go down to the farm for milk. Now, last week when we went down there, we got in this sudden HUGE thunderstorm, which was rather thrilling and exciting. I didn’t expect a sequel this week.
But sure enough, just as we were almost there, this whopper of a storm blew up, and it was incredible! Visibility almost nil, and branches and trees getting blown down everywhere, and lightening flashing all around. We almost got hit a couple of times by falling limbs!
The way back home was truly terrifying. We got to see how narrowly we had escaped a falling tree, and the lightening was epic. At one point, we saw the flash, and a few minutes later, smelled burning and saw smoke. At that point, I thought I was going to lose it. I am not a scaredy-cat by a long shot. In fact, I pride myself on being a generally pretty brave person. But to say I was terrified that whole drive home would be an understatement. Every muscle in my body was tensed up and I was very very quiet the whole way. I was so afraid we were going to get hit by debris or lightening. Not that the lightening would have been so bad– the van is grounded, but STILL.
And yet. All that fear and all that adrenaline and catecholamines being sent through my system still did not induce labor. 😛 My OB says it’s still Fort Knox up there, but at least my cervix is thinning out now, for what it’s worth. And the baby’s head is in position.
My middle sister and niece are coming over today to work on the baby’s room. Right now, you literally cannot even walk in the door, ha! My friends who came on Monday may be coming today as well, and we can hopefully finish up with the major progress we made then. It’s nice to see things coming along finally. Now to get dressed.
