Six Days And Counting...My Speculations...Smeculations

Hello everyone!

After all the activity yesterday, I slept like a baby last night. Like nothing happened and everything felt like it was back to normal today. It actually feels now like this labor could be, heck, days and days away.

But, I know that all of that could change on a dime. And quickly too. Just because I don't feel like it won't happen soon doesn't mean it won't.

So, I know I mentioned yesterday that I lost some of my mucus plug yesterday. Well, I continued to lose more of it today which as I mentioned before just means that I'm dilated enough that it's just falling out.

This also has me speculating on a few things. If I'm already dilated to three or maybe four and I have no more mucus plug, could this mean that when the real thing finally happens that it could go...quickly?


Only time will tell I spose.

In the meantime, I got in a wonderful nap this afternoon. Cooked up some home made soup for supper. Made it to the gym and got in the my third work-out for the week. I felt strong and pretty normal throughout my work-out.

I'm feeling real good about having my work-outs in. Like, ok, now the baby can come. Actually, I think I'm over the whole irritations of the baby not coming yesterday. Now I feel like he can come next week if he wants. I just want it to be the right time and for him to be healthy and ready.

I've also been eating on plan and have been feeling great because of it. I have a strong desire to finish this pregnancy strong. I want to eat well all the way to the end and beyond. I want to get those work-outs in...all the way to the end. I really, really want to see what happens when I do it the right way. And how my body will recover differently because I have done it the right way.

Anyway... as I was bustling around getting things ready yesterday I thought of all these things that should be done before he comes. Like the house is a mess. Laundry needs to be done. I could do some more baking... So, I will have more time to do these things. Heck, our eight-year-old son has one last flag football game this Saturday.

It's kind of weird to plan like tomorrow will happen as normal while at the same time planning as if it won't.

Ahh, but what's life without a little excitement?

Hope you all have a happy Thursday!
