Well, I’m up again. It’s 6:49 on a Saturday morning, and I can’t sleep. Samuel woke up wanting milk, and I told Michael to get it, but at first he didn’t want to. So I said I'd get it. Then he said that he would, but I got up anyway. I should have let him, because I knew that if I got up that I wouldn’t be able to go back to sleep, and here I am. Oh well. I kind of like being able to get on the computer and fiddle around the house while everyone’s asleep and Samuel’s not trying to bang on my keyboard. I’m also getting ready to be up all night pretty soon.
The common question that people keep asking me now is if I’m ready. My answer is always yes and no – to which they say, “Well, you look ready! You’re about to burst!” But I digress…I am ready to see my sweet little boy and start life with him. I’m so excited to hold him (and to get him out of my ever-expanding abdomen.) I’m also more than ready when it comes to practical preparations. I can’t think of anything else I need or have to do before Monday (except a few everyday household chores). But, nonetheless, I lay in bed with my mind racing trying to come up with stuff. I’m also a bit nervous about the hard work of it all, not that I can’t do it, just that I know that it’s going to be hard.
Also, what in the world! My body is not cooperating with things! On top of a sinus infection, my doctor’s office called me yesterday and told me that I have a bladder infection! Are you serious! So I’m on two different antibiotics that I can’t take at the same time of day. The one for the sinus infection ends on Sunday, which is good. But I’m not going to be able to finish the one for the bladder infection before Monday, and I can’t take it while I’m breastfeeding. Here’s to hoping it goes away without a full run of antibiotics! Pass the cranberry juice! Seriously, if anyone has any good home remedies for bladder infections/UTIs, I’m all ears.
Well, my next post will probably be a sweet little birth announcement. My surgery is on Monday the 25th at 12:30. I’m so excited! Please be praying that everything goes well.
