I just want it today!
Yesterday, I had my first-ever real contraction made by my body w/o the help of any drugs. I was lying on the couch w/Taryn, and my back suddenly started to really hurt. Then, out of the blue, all of the pain went straight to my belly and I felt like somehow God had managed to tie me in a knot, just like a pretzel. It hurt like a BITCH! On the outside, I say that I don't want to have another one of those. However, deep down, I want to have lots and lots of them, preferrably very soon, so I can just get this over with! I spent the entire day just kinda waiting to see if I would feel it again, but it wasn't so. Like, who the hell has ONE contraction!? It was like my body was saying, "Hey, check this out. Sucks, don't it? Well, one day you can have some more...just wanted to let you have a little taste today." Oh, and I lost my mucus plug the night before that, too. I had thought I had already, but I'm sure I did then. Either that, or I have found a new way to blow my nose!

So all day today so far and yesterday I have felt like complete horse shit. I feel like it may have something to do w/the fact that I pushed myself a little hard yesterday trying to get the boys' room finished (which it is, mostly), and the fact that I did dishes at work last night and worked my butt off. However, after a night of "rest", I still feel bad, if not worse. I would really like for this to end now. Igh.

Oh, did you want to see the boys' room? It's hard to take pics that show it that well, and it still needs some accessorizing, but here it is:

Oh, and so not to leave Taryn out, here's a pic of her in some little sports jersey TJ has. Now that's my girl!

    Sounds like it's going to be sooner than I thought! Hang in there.

    The room looks great! I wish I had the initiative to make my kids rooms look nice.

    I love the red and blue paint job. As for the baby - remember my guess was the 23rd so hold out for just a couple more days, k?

    Oh you sound like you're going to have your baby any minute!!! Good luck!!

    And I agree with Kurt... how come Taryn suddenly grew so BIG overnight??

    She keeps doing that growing thing, and I can't seem to stop her! I beg, plead, and bribe, but nooooo, she insists on growing up!

    If this baby is coming any minute, I wish he'd pick a sooner minute!

    I was starting to get worried!!! I've been 2 weeks without access to the computer and all I could think was that you would have little boy before I got back!! I'm kinda happy he's still holding on. I'll be updating myself soon too. Promise. I'M ONLINE AGAIN AT HOME!!!! YAY!!! Hurry up little boy!!!
