Ah, so let’s dig ourselves out of the hole, shall we? Yesterday’s post was dismal, huh? That’s how I felt though. That’s how I feel at the end. I meant it when I said it was worse than post-partum for me.
Things are better; things always are by the light of day. A few bad nights doesn’t make me a bad mom. It tends to make me feel bad; but I know I am not actually horrible. I don’t know.
Let’s back track a bit!!
I took the kiddos to the community pool on Tuesday and they had a really good time. I ran out of sunscreen just as I was finishing Bud, so that left me bare, and I did end up with a bit of a burn. I look healthy now though, despite the potential cancer and whatnot. Besides, it was worth it for the fun the kiddos had.
Yesterday, I shopped for baby items and nursing bras. Then I got a pedicure in a trashy hot-pink shade called “Bimbo Limbo”. I love it. I worked around the house for a bit in the afternoon/early evening and then played Wii for a bit after my temper tantrum.
We got up early and went o the park today to scope it out for Lucy’s upcoming birthday. Hub and I got coffee and breakfast on the way (it’s about a 45 minute drive to this great park, where we also used to camp), and we all had a picnic lunch before heading home. It was a really nice time.
ON TO CONTEST STUFF
My package from Swistle arrived yesterday and it was full of great stuff, as well as notes about where most of it came from. It was awesome.
It included a blanket, cardigan, sleeper and adorable sandals for baby, some animal trading cards—2 sets EXACTLY the same for Bud and Lucy, A Teeny Bopper Beany which Lucy has not put down, a Halloween costume, and the reusable target bags—which I do not believe are sold here. (Those are Lucy’s toes in the photo; Swistle did not ship me toddler toes.)
Then there was this, my favorite thing. I actually said out loud: “Is this from the MIL set????” Indeed, it is, and it is gorgeous. I love it.
Now then, of course I have to pay it forward, an lets not do any of that random crap unless it’s necessary. Here’s what I want to do:
My tell-all appointment is tomorrow. We will find out if/how much I am dilated as well as get an estimate via sonogram of how big the baby is. Whoever is the closes on the CM and size wins!!
To help you out:
*Tomorrow I will be 36 weeks and 3 days pregnant
*I was 2cm with Bud for the last 5 weeks of pregnancy.
*I did not dilate until 38 weeks with Lucy and was 3cm the day before I went in to labor.
*I have measured about 2 weeks ahead of schedule size-wise since about 20-weeks.
*Bud was born at 40 weeks and 3 days at 10lbs 2oz
*Lucy was born at 38 weeks and 1 day at 9lbs 5oz.
So go!! Make your guesses! Really, it is anyone’s game. You will have until 11:59PM (eastern time) on Saturday 7/12 to enter. I will announce a winner on Sunday.
OK, I feel a bit better now and I’m off to bed. Big day tomorrow!! If you aren’t entering and must know how things went, shoot me an email.
Ok! I’m going to split the difference and say you’re 1 1/2 cm and that The Bean will measure 8 lbs 2 oz.*Nobly suppressing Swistle prize envy*
2 cm9 lb. 1 oz.I have to win something, WAHHHHHH!
Okay, I have won more than my share of PIF contests already, so I shall refrain from entering. But can I just say, OMG what a great prize! Fun!
Great prize!I’m guessing 1 cm dilated and the baby is currently measuring 8 lbs even.
Glad that you’re feeling better. It looks like the kids had a great time swimming. And what a great gift pack from Swistle.Yeah, this will be a fun appointment and contest. 😉 My official guess is 2cm and baby measures 7lbs 6oz. (I’m guessing smaller, because my son measured almost a pound and a half smaller the day before he was born. Yikes!)
1 cm and the size will be 8 lbs, 14 oz.Cool prize!P.S. I am jealous that you have a Wii.
Holy Crap. Dude. I had my answer all written down and it was STOLEN by NoWheyMama. Harumph.Oh, well.This is my guess: 7 lbs 14 ozs and 1.5 cm and 25% effacement. Yeah!Also,*Fan Face* You have a piece of the MIL set!?!?!Oh. My. God. Jealous. (I am not noble at all 😉 )
Couldn’t there be a tie?
I’m guessing two cm. and the baby is weighing in at approx. eight pounds, eleven ounces.
Oh, dang it, I forgot to include toddler toes! I KNEW I forgot SOMETHING!I’m entering this, because I love guessing baby stuff and also because I think that would be very funny indeed for us to loop like that. So let’s see.I guess 2 cm dilated, and I guess the baby’s weight will be estimated at 7 pounds 8 ounces.
1 cm (sorry)8 lb., 12 oz.Good luck!
2-3 cm, and 8# even

No Whey Mama- if there is a tie, I will break out the random number generator. Tessie– JESUS!!! She could be like 11lbs by the time you’re done with her.

4cm, 8 lbs. 7 oz.
3 cm and 8 lbs 11 oz
