Braxton Hicks

*I'm sorry if I sound like a grumpy pants...I'm just being honest*
I just need to post that I am extremely tired and annoyed by these contractions. This was day 4 I believe? It was way worse today. Anytime I'm walking or standing or eating, they come on and are uncomfortable. I'm feeling irritable (ask Gary!) and Kai is being extra wild due to being trapped in a house and the abundance of holiday fun. I just feel a little grumpy because its not comfortable eating the yummy food placed in front of me. I feel crampish and yucky. I feel like crying. I am so thankful for the baby to come. I'm just frustrated with how little I can do right now and how uncomfortable I am. Sitting hurts because the baby gets squashed, standing causes contractions, lying down causes my hips to become numb. Maybe I need to just lie in a pool. I think we will go to the pool on Boxing day. Tomorrow we have the Chapman Christmas part 2 in the morning (if we can get the van out of the garage and all the way to Aldergrove) and then I am going to sit in the recliner and read all afternoon. I hope.
PS We had a really wonderful Dekens Christmas Celebration tonight and we will post pictures later. Kai got a Home Depot Power Tool Workshop from my family and he is PUMPED.


  1. If only we knew someone with their own personal inside pool that you could hang out in all day, we could all serve you food and drink :) I hope you sleep well tonight.

  2. good thing you got a family pass to the pool!
    just CALL to make sure they're open - I know wc blair and walnut grove's pools and hot tubs were closed for cleaning a week ago.

  3. I remember how much I loved the pool in the final weeks. I didn't even care that I looked like a whale! I can sooo resonate with hip pain too. My hips still hurt sometimes:( Maybe you should treat yourself to a massage before (and after) the baby comes! Merry Christmas!
