Restless

me & the boyToday I’m just plain restless. There are things I could be doing, but I don’t have the mental capacity to concentrate for long periods. I’m trying, but just not succeeding. I’ve caught up on my Google reader feeds. I’ve read everything I care to on Twitter and Facebook. I’ve cleaned most of the kitchen and about as much of the living room as I can stand. It’s still cluttered and crowded. It definitely needs more “it’s time to get rid of this junk I’m not using” and less moving things around just to make it look a little better.

But I’m sick of it. All of it.

I even have some things to read on my Kindle. And I’ve been perusing our baby registry. But none of it is keeping my attention for long.

I’m impatient. Just biding my time. Do you know how boring that is? I’m going stir crazy. It doesn’t matter if I get out and go to the store. Or go through the mail and pay bills. None of it. It’s all busy work.

I knew this would be a long weekend but GEEZ. Enough already. Either go into labor or something. Please.

As much as I’ve wanted to see Harry Potter, I don’t know if I could sit through it, even. First, I have to pee every 10 minutes so I’d probably miss a lot of good parts of the movie. And since I didn’t already go and see it, I doubt I will tomorrow considering it’s my son’s third birthday tomorrow.

By the way, this time three years ago? I got induced mid-morning. I was still in labor at this point and wouldn’t have the kid until almost six o’clock tomorrow night. That’s right. It was a very long labor. In spite of that, I’d still rather go into labor about right now. EVEN IF it means both boys have exactly the same birthday. I’m that desperate.

Hold me?

    I think it would be awesome if your kids had the same birthdays, and they’d probably love it too! I hope you do go into labor on your own, soon! And if not, then I wish you a quick and easy labor on Tuesday. :-)

      Thank you. On Tuesday there will definitely be little pain – doc said he’s going for a spinal block. Thank goodness, because the epidural was NOT pleasant for me. It was fine enough during labor, but not nearly effective enough for surgery. It wore off too quickly. In fact, I’m thinking that if I do go into labor I probably won’t ask for another one. Unless I get really desperate.

    Sorry Becky. You are SO close! Snuggle with that boy just a little longer, and before you know it new baby boy will be here. Looking forward to hearing the news!

      I know – it really is so close. Son has been in my lap EVEN MORE. He knows time is almost up. Oh, the anxiety that alone produces (in how he’ll react to having mommy occupied with someone else soon). Thanks for your thoughts. We’ll definitely tweet once we have some news.
