It's Getting Close!

Eric's mom is coming in 1 hour, 45 minutes to be exact :)  Wow, I should really get off the computer and get a shower and get dressed, huh?  We'll be leaving the house in about 45 minutes to head to the airport.  Now that help is coming, I know it's getting close!  Baby girl will be here in just 5 days.  HOLY COW!  Eric will be home Tuesday morning, although I wish he would come home earlier.  He was told if anything happened that he needed to come home early, they could get him a flight out.  Family comes first.  This conversation came up because I had a little fall yesterday.  I had to take Murphy to the vet (AGAIN) and she was so excited to be back at her second home that she pulled me so hard, I tripped and fell over.  I landed on my knees and kind of on my left leg a little but didn't impact my belly at all.  I had a little cramping but no contractions or bleeding or anything else so I figured I was ok.  About an hour and a half later I wondered if I should call my doctor, just for some reassurance that there was nothing to worry about.  I didn't talk to the doctor until almost 3pm (the fall was at 9am) but she said I should be fine, just do kick counts (10 kicks in a 2 hour period) and if I start contracting or bleeding to go to the hospital.  Thank God everything's been fine.  Our little angel is still kicking me like crazy so I have my reassurance that she's ok.  In fact, she's been kicking so much that I don't even have to time or count her kicks, they're so frequent.  Not to mention the jabs to my bladder and her pushing her butt up into my lungs...  :)  I'm glad everything was ok and that I worried for nothing, but I kind of wish Eric was coming home early anyway.  Today's his birthday afterall, wouldn't it be nice for him to fly out tonight??  :)

Well, I really should get in the shower now and get ready to go to the airport.  I don't know when I'll be checking in again...probably Wednesday night/Thursday morning since I'm sure I won't be sleeping at all that night!
