Playing the waiting game!

In a little more than 3 hours, my mom and grandma will be here. I'm pretty excited, but stressed at the same time. I am SO not the best housekeeper, period. My grandma has always had some comment to make about wherever we are living. This time around, the less she has to say, the happier I will be! So, I'll do some little spot cleaning and an hour or so before they arrive, I will do some scrubbing to make it smell nice haha.
With all the pressure and the pre-labor contractions, I am ready to be done! I hate walking around like I am hodling a watermelon between my thighs, or like I just finished a 4 hour horse ride. I went to the hospital Saturday night, because I was feeling contractions every 3-5 minutes. They saw a few occurring every 2-3 minutes on the monitor, but sent me home due to lack of progression. Warren was sooo ready that night too! He was even happy to show me his polo shirt so he didn't look like a scrub in baby pictures. His family gave him a lot of flack for what he was wearing when Shannon was born. So, he decided to dress a tad differently this time around. I was so frustrated after that night, all I could do was cry. They told me to go home, take a darvocet and get some sleep, so I did. I haven't really had contractions since then. I had a few last night about 4 minutes apart when I was trying to do dinner and dishes, so I sat down and they went away. But the pressure is still there. The nurse told me the pressure is what could potentially break my water. I had no idea since I was induced last time. I feel like a complete newb about going into labor this pregnancy.
Warren is taking some leave off this week to help me and spend some time with my family. His first day, he ended up staying up until 8 am playing video games, then crawled into the bed when I got up. So far, no time with me =o( Hopefully he'll decide to wake up once my family arrives. Anyway, I should probably get started on my to do lists. I foresee A LOT of breaks and pauses in the process, so I definitely need to get a move on!

Gold patent leather pants are hideous.

So, yeah, I've been bad and it's been a while since I've written anything. I guess a whole lot hasn't taken place. Still pregnant, still pulling my hair out over Shannon, and 75% of me is still hating my husband's schedule.
I love having the bed to myself at night. I love being able to utilize all pillows and every inch of the bed. But, I HATE being alone at night. Especially since I could have sworn I heard gun shots last night around 2 am. This place just freaks me out, and I'm so tired of telling the people below me to shut up. They throw more parties during the week than they do on the weekend. I can't wait until Erin is here so I can have 10 days of "normalcy" with my husband. I guess I took much for granted when we lived in Monterey.
Shannon finds so much humor in driving me NUTS. Like, I swear she still poops in her pants just to spite me. The other day she even thanked me for changing her diaper. I have just been so tempted to sit her on the toilet for a full day. Since we moved her toys to her room, put a small tv in there, and take her outside more, she has been a little easier to deal with. There have definitely been fewer time outs.
And yes, still pregnant! I guess I'm right around 36 weeks. Already at 2-3cm and about 50% effaced. I've had some spouts with irregular contractions and most days I feel like someone kicked me between the legs with a steel toe boot. I have no idea what I'm doing really right now. Since I was induced with Shannon, I didn't really go through any of this. So, I feel like I'm walking up to the batter's box with a blindfold on! My poor doctor's nurse, I call her constantly to tell her about some new symptom I'm feeling, or something to do with my gall bladder. I'm pretty excited though, we finally have everything we need or wanted. Also, my mom and grandma will be arriving on Monday. So, it will be nice to see them and hopefully get some sightseeing in before Erin arrives.
