Do you believe in signs? You know those little things that happen that almost seem to be messages?
I have been very emotional the last few days – if you ask Kiara she will say “VERY EMOTIONAL” and yesterday started off really crappy and I was feeling rather overwhelmed. I was watching an episode of House – I wasn’t really paying attention to the episode but looked up for the last scene where they focused on the word “acceptance” that was written on a white board! It was a reminder not only of my word but also of what it means.
Today while I was spending a Christmas voucher having a pedicure (can you say HEAVEN) I was paging through a magazine they had and a lot of the people featured were from a small town David and I would love to move too. It was for different things, so not like a feature on the town or anything but rather just random people who happen to come from there. David and I will have to make some serious decisions this year about our families future and seeing that town come up so often in the magazine has made me think that we need to put that option back on the table.
Do you notice things like this? Do you take them to mean something or are they just words on a white board and stories in a magazine?
Apart from VERY EMOTIONAL today I had the added bonus of an hour of cramping (??) – thought it was labour but it then disappeared and my blood pressure just dropped – like plummeted and is probably right now sitting at 0 over 0. Not fun because I can barely keep my eyes open despite trying to eat a variety of things to get it back up again! Pregnancy really is a wonderful thing :-p
In case you missed the au pair drama – here it is. We had Holly, then we didn’t! Then we had X and her mom, and then we didn’t. Then we had another au pair, then we didn’t. Then we had a friend who could help 2 days a week and a granny who would help a third. Then I had a nervous break down, ate half of my baby shower cake, 2 boxes of biscuits and then we had soccermoms!
In the end I think it is the better option – it is now a business transaction between us and them and the lady I eventually spoke was lovely and helpful and we worked it out so that it fits our budget and everything.
Did you go into labour? Were you induced? Or did you make your caesar date?
