Just a little over three weeks to go! I have my first cervix check at my doctor's appointment tomorrow and I am SO hoping that I've at least made a little progress. I've been having Braxton Hicks every evening like crazy for the past couple of weeks and have felt a lot of lower pressure so I'm hoping that's my body getting ready. I know I'll survive if I go all the way to my due date or beyond, but I can't wait to hold my baby boy (who is still unnamed) in my arms!
As of tomorrow, we will also be the owners of a 2005 Chrysler Town & Country LX minivan! We have completely depleted our savings account to make this purchase, but we got a really good deal on it so I'm excited! Well, not so sure how excited I am to already be driving a minivan (I'm only 26!) but it's one step closer to being ready for my little boy to come. Now we just have to sell my car to pay off the personal loan we took out temporarily to pay for the minivan (we had several offers on my car before we decided to do that, so it wasn't really that much of a risk). I'll miss my little Echo...it's been my car since just before I turned 17 so it's seen me through long drives to visit my love and trips to and from college. So many life-events have happened in the past nine years, it's kind of bittersweet to lose a piece of history like my first car. Not to be too sentimental over a car or anything.
Well, I need to eat dinner before Kirk wakes up from his nap (he's back to needing a second one lately...not sure why, unless it's because his molars are coming in). Then I need to feed both of the munchkins and see if I can muster up enough energy to make it through the rest of the evening.
