I think I'm in Labor!!!!!

Yep, you read right.  I am showing signs of labor.  I have never been this early.  I will officially be 37 weeks tomorrow.  I am not mentally ready to have this baby, but what can you do when your body is showing signs of early labor. 

Last night I was having some loose bowels and I lost my mucus plug.  With my previous pregnancies this has meant that I will be having the baby within a few days to a weeks time.  Last night, around 3 am true "cervix type" contractions were coming every 5 to 7 minutes and became stronger as the morning approached.  I am very tired and have not slept since 3 AM.  Around 5 PM, I started to have some spotting.  I am still having some of this bleeding.  I have never had this before, so this is all new for me.  I debated calling the hospital to check on what they might think I should do.  I haven't called them yet.  I am going to hang low and see if these contractions start changing. 

It is about 8:45 AM and they seem to have spread out in timing.  I am probably going to lay down and see if I can sleep some.  That is if I can rest my mind and stop thinking of what I "still" need to do.   All I know, is that I just might have this baby within these next few days.  Yes, I am very excited, but never expected to come 3 weeks early.  My last two babies were late.   I will be sending out updates as I am able to.   I have to go pack my hospital bag!!:)

PS.  "Secret Agent Dog" has been going nuts.  He was whining in the middle of the night pacing the halls (while I was having contractions).  Follows me to the bathroom and scratches at the door.  The poor dog is sooooo tired he starts to fall asleep standing up.  :)  Pretty funny.

Thanksgiving at home: First time in 18 years

Let's just say that we didn't plan to spend Thanksgiving at home this year. I think the last time we celebrated in our own home was back when Moriah was a baby.  Yeah...that's about 18 years ago or so.  Let me tell you....W e absolutely loved it! Here's a little run down on how our plans were miscommunicated. You see...Donnie and I didn't communicate our Thanksgiving plans very well this year.  He had forgotten that we had spent Thanksgiving with his side of the family last year so that meant it was time to drive up to Jacksonville and spend time with my side of the family.  With not much talk of our T hanksgiving plans, I hear from the kids that he t old brother or dad not sure who that we would be heading down to see them Thanksgiving.    This conversation happened just a few weeks before Thanksgiving.  Kids: Hey where are we going for Thanksgiving this year? Me: Ummm....I think it's Jax.   One of the kids:  I thi

Stop the Rush

Since returning to blogging, I'm finding some drafts lost in the archives of this ole' blog.  It's interesting to read and think about the day, time, year....when I wrote this specific post. What was I feeling? What was I thinking? This specific post was drafted on March of 2016...Ana was around 7 years old. That was almost 5 years ago! This sweet little girl turned 12 last week.      As I read through the post, I remember that feeling of "rushing", a lot of it was in my mind but I also was rushing...kids to school, boys doing some sort of sport, Ana was taking dance, helping kids with homework, no need to go on.  You get my point.  This was 5 years ago!  This was a year before we left our town Gainesville, Florida to explore the United States and Mexico.  A lot has changed since then and looking forward to catching you all up on everything. So here we go... Most of the time I find myself barely living in the moment.  That's if I don't purposely try to liv
