Note to self: when you call just to chat and say hi this late in pregnancy, your mom will definitely think you’re in labor

Jun 24, 2017

The waiting continues. Aside from a pleasant family trip to the library this afternoon, I spent the whole day at home, mostly working on baby Henry’s quilt and watching a billion episodes of Planet Earth on Netflix. 

(Side note: finally made it through the whole “caves” episode this time. Turns out it gets better/less gross after that scene where the bat falls in the poop and gets eaten alive by cockroaches.) 

I finished all the hand quilting and sewed the front of the binding on by machine tonight, so now I just need to finish sewing the back of the binding on by hand and then maybe/probably/definitely stitch his name into it somewhere. 

Honestly can’t decide at this point if I hope I go early or wait until the scheduled c-section and waltz in there all non-contraction-y. On the one hand, it’d be great to go into labor like, now. But on the other hand it’d be great to finish seeing the binding on the quilt and, more importantly, get the kids settled at Nana’s house without any “I’m already in labor” drama and, most importantly, have my body be in non-stress mode when I go in for major surgery. 

Buuuuuut on the other hand, now still sounds good too.
