I had a few things on my to -do list this weekend.

My shower is May 17th and I am trying to have my registry complete before the invites go out. The more info I read, the more my decisions become clear as mud on what type/kind/things I need to register for. There are just sooo many choices. I don't think planning my wedding had this many choices. Plus I have run into a weird situation - I love to find stuff on the internet. I am finding that not all chains carry the same items - nor have access to ordering the things you may find on their website .... very frustrating. SO when I find something I like, I can't run out and see it. I have found the stores offer similar items but not exactly what I was looking for. Grrrrr

My car needed hand washing. I called my father yesterday to see if he would help me since E was working this weekend. Plus my father has insane OCD when it comes to making sure all things on/in cars are clean enough to eat off of. After my father is involved in cleaning - It will pass the white glove test. So we spent alteast 2 hours making sure it will sparkle and shine.

I came home just in time to greet E in the parking lot and come up with a plan for dinner. His mother and 3 of the younger kids are coming over today and I am supposed to have the house cleaned. So last night, I started getting our house company ready. I was so tired and sore from all the manual labor.

Around 3:30 I woke up in some serious weird upper stomach/chest pain/pinching/crampy feeling. I waddled off to the bathroom hoping that would help. It took alittle of the pressure off the pinching pain but didn't make it much more comfortable. I tried to go back to sleep and finally managed to get comfortable enough to dose off. E's alarm clock went off at 5 and woke me up. I got up to go back to the bathroom. I was feeling better but not completely. He was worried about me, but I assured him sleep would make it all better. I woke up a few hours later, went #2 and started to feel MUCH better. I think my bowels were/are getting pushed on. (or i assume that was the problem - it seems to been some of the solution) I won't lie, it's 12:30. I have company coming in less than 4 hours and I haven't gotten out of bed or done any of the to-do's for today that need to be done before company arrives. I am feeling alittle paranoid, but with each nudge, kick, movement from Mini - I am slowly getting my confidence level back up in order to go clean the kitchen, fold laundry and run to the grocery store to get food for our guests and have dinner ready when they get here. I am not really sure how long they are staying. 2-3 days ish

I keep telling Mini, that he needs to hang out in there a lil while longer and If he does so I promise to take good care of him while he is in there! Any good thoughts you can spare for me today would be greatly appreciated! Hope everyone else is having a great end to the weekend.

I meant to ask the other day...what did you do to deserve this torture...I mean blessing?

Hope you're feeling better.

The registering is so hard. I wish people would just give gift cards so you can get what you need as you go. The one piece of assvice I'll pass along--wait to buy things like swings. Instead, go over to someone's house with the baby and try it out and see if they like it. You may find your baby loves vibrating bouncey seats and hates swings, or vice versa. Saves on space :-)

Feel better! You are always in my thoughts=)

Hey I hope you are feeling better soon! I'd tell you not to overdo it, but I know how you feel when company is coming, especially inlaws. I have definitely overdone the cleaning thing when expecting overnight company. Take care of yourself and good luck registering.

Murphey's law of pregnancy. The more energy you need for an event, the worse you'll feel.
Happened to me on Easter. Both our families here and I had 4 rounds of "uh-oh, I think I'm going to pass out."

Hope you're feeling better!

ack family! I say clean as much as you can without taxing yourself and then relax. Don't overdo anything - sit back and just repeatedly tell people "I'm pregnant". I can't promise it'll work all that well, but at least it'll be fun saying it!
