From The Belly Diaries, Wed, Aug 11, 2010

I admit my post yesterday was a bit of a downer.

I was pretty depressed after my dr appt. I appreciate the support and comments. Granted, sometimes when you feel like poop the last thing you want to read are comments from people trying to get you to cheer up, but thanks anyway :)

Today I am more positive. Just trying to remember that I can only do what I can, and the rest is not up to me.

My friend Erika came over today and brought her son Camden, so that Preston could have a little friend to play with. WOW did he need it! The poor guy has just needed some friend time. Tessha has been an awesome job entertaining him and playing lots of Lego's, but haha - he's wearing her out. I think she was grateful for the break :)

We went for a 1/2 mile walk. It was by far more painful than my walks last week. Those darn pelvic bones were really screaming at me, but I was determined.

I've been doing rotations on the ball too. And still taking my "birth" herbs to stimulate something.

It's exciting to realize that next weekend we'll have our baby here.

If we can just agree on his name, that would be awesome...

We have not agreed on any names these past 9 months. My husband is possibly THE pickiest name person on the face of the planet. However, over the past month or so we had finally found a name that we both semi-agreed upon. Until last night that is...when Will started doing statistical research on the name and found that in recent years it has flipped to more of a girl name than a boy name.

I strongly disagree.

I can't tell you what the name is, but I think if I did tell you, you would agree with me that it is still very much a boy name.

So...I don't know. I really like the name, Will really likes the name...except now he is second guessing it. I think maybe since I carried the baby for 9 months and endured a lot of physical hardship in doing so, I get to pick the name. :) Haha.

Anyway. Trying to stay more positive here. Thanks for letting me vent when I need to, and for the support of my decisions and approaches.

P.S. I got surprise flowers delivered to me this morning. Thank you Tanya :)

Maybe one reason the baby has not come yet is you don"t have a name for him. What ever happened to the brother of Preston?

Hang in there Jenni. You're almost done. Or maybe, the baby's almost done and you were done a while back. Either way, it's almost over.

LOL Sandy! I think she's been done for a while. :)
