Pictures, more baby, etc

Guess whose camera magically reappeared last night?!?! It was the oddest thing. I swear we've looked there before.

Well, right before it went missing, I specifically took pictures to share of my 36 week belly, and my awesome new haircut/color. I was kinda hoping to debut the hair with my maternity pictures, but I think Wendy's pretty far behind on editing so I don't know when those will be available. So, unfortunately, the color is a bit faded and not as cool (as happens so quickly with bright pink), but here you are:

Holy crud my belly looks HUGE! I swear it doesn't look that big in person. At least not from my perspective.

So last night, I got closer than ever to going to the hospital (which you're gonna laugh at, because you probably wouldn't even blink an eye at this): my contractions got up to 10 minutes apart, and strong enough to make me go "Ow." I got super excited and started watching the clock religiously..... at which point they of course disappeared completely. Dangit!

"Nesting" is kicking in, but just in response to my frustration about still being pregnant. I can't sleep as well because my mind is racing, wondering/hoping SOMETHING will happen SOON, and so as a coping mechanism I'm keeping myself busy (and walking!) by cleaning the entire house and running errands. Even though I'm exhausted. Everything else is completely ready for baby, and I'm running out of things to do, which frightens me. I don't need more time to think!

Oh, and I almost forgot, a picture of my cute husband making me "breakfast in bed" on Mother's day:

I had to work Saturday night, so Brit woke up early to have breakfast ready for me when I got home. (Unfortunately it took me an unusually short amount of time to give report and get home, so it wasn't quite ready when I got there.... but that wasn't really a problem.) He made me pancakes and brought them to a sleepy me after I'd gotten in bed. It was soooooo nice. I sleep better if I eat first, anyway. I love my Britty. And this Father's day, he's gonna be a real dad! I'll have to think up something special for him.

If you go this early I'm going to be really jealous ... I'm fully anticipating going late. Grrrr ... :)

Glad you found your camera! Love seeing your cute belly - can't wait to meet the little man!

Wow you look great! I hope you don't have the same experience as I did with the contractions, I was having contractions every 5-10 minutes, sometimes really painful, for a full week before she came. The 2 days before Kiara came they were every 5 min and had me on the floor in pain, but when we went to the hospital the first time they said I wasn't even dilating! It was probably the worst 48 hours of my life but it was worth it in the end!

make that husband of yours strip your membranes (that is if you are dilated some already). then have s*x a bunch. I'm sure that would get labor going for you. ;)
