the time is now!

Or at least pretty soon. I think the babe might be showing up sooner rather than later. things are moving and contractions are getting somewhat uncomfortable, even though they are still irregular. I have been doing a lot these last couple of days, so i'm sure that has something to do with it. i've also dreamt about going into labor the last two nights.

i called the midwife and she told me to have a drink of water and relax for a bit. that kind of made things less painful, but it didn't stop the contractions all together. i'm going to bed after this, just to get a full night in.

the yard sale went well. there's still a few things i want to get rid of.

i can't for the life of me find the hardware for the co-sleeper. i'll have to look some more tomorrow. tomorrow is house cleaning day and time to re-evaluate the things i want to get done before babelicious arrives. her bag is packed. just a couple of options of things to wear on the way home from the hospital. My bag is still undone, but the camera is charged and the laptop is ready to go at a moments notice. I'm going to finish that up tomorrow.

on the knitting front, i did start a swallowtail shawl (ravelry link) with the sundara aran silky merino from the seasons yarn club. i love this yarn. the color (ruby port) the feel of it. it's all so beautiful. i can't wait to finish it. i'm bringing it as my hospital knitting. not sure if i'll actually do any, but at least i'll have something there that i'm really into it it comes up.

if i get around to some photos tomorrow i'll post some wip pics of the shawl.
