Back Woes!!!

I cannot wait to become a mommy! I was picking out mother's day cards yesterday and it was so different this time. I just couldn't find one that said what I wanted it to say...but with Todd's help we found some! I went ahead and bought mother's day and father's day gifts b/c I knew that I will not be getting out with a newborn to go shopping. Todd and I made it an all day shopping trip to make sure we finished up all the last minute errands we wanted to run before Noah arrives. Plus, we had a doctor's appt. and I am sad to say that she did not check me to see if I am showing any signs of labor!!! I was totally bummed! I made sure we had all of our bags just in case..yeah I was hoping big time..HAHA!!

I asked the dr. if I needed to call her earlier than most b/c we live an hour away from the hospital but she assured me that I would have plenty of time. She said to call when my contractions are 1 minute long and 5 minutes apart. And I have NO contractions to speak of!!! Not even braxton hicks contractions!!!! I have a feeling this little guy is in for the long haul!!! And I would be right on board if it wasn't for my back hurting soooo much. When Todd and I went shopping all day I had to just tough it out, but there were times when I just wanted to cry b/c it hurt so badly. And once it won't stop unless I am laying down on my side. The worst is when I go out to eat (my favorite pastime at the moment) and I can't even enjoy eating b/c it starts hurting. My doctor didn't seem to think it was a big deal and that it just comes with the territory. I have already decided that if I am blessed enough to have another child...I need to start working on my back muscles so that this won't be so bad next time!!!!!

Other than back woes I am doing great. Just daydreaming about my sweet boy and enjoying the nice weather. And I swear Maggie must know when I finally get situated on the couch and my back isn't hurting b/c that is when she needs to go out to potty and when I get back in I can never get back to a comfy position. It is driving me nuts! UGGG!!!! We SOOOO need a fence. I guess that is something I can put on my wish list!!!

Just a few more days and I will only have 3 weeks to go!!! Well, the most being 4 b/c I was told they would induce if I went to 41 wks! Here's to hoping I go before then!!!!
