week 27 day 5

Last night around 11, I was trying to go to sleep. I had woken up at 3:30 that morning so I was ready for a long rest. However, the baby thought differently. In fact, I'm pretty sure she was practicing to play Rock Band drums on expert with a little head banging and a lot of moving. She must have been pretty worn out because when I woke up during the middle of the night, she wasn't moving as much as she normally is during the night.

Mike and I are trying to plan another vacation for next month. It's been really difficult because I don't want to be uncomfortable the whole time and I don't want it to be too high stress because I don't know how fast I'll be able to move ... or willing to move. I also have a huge fear that something will happen with the baby like her trying to come out early. It's not likely since she's my first but since she's my first and I don't know anything about my family history, it could be a possibility. It would just really stink to be stuck somewhere where there isn't good health care and good hospitals.

I'm really leaning towards Hawaii. It's really beautiful and there are a lot of things I want to see there. The Caribbean is also a choice but I haven't found a lot of things I want to do there yet other than snorkel ... but I don't think I will be able to do that. Either way, little Katie gets to come with us. I just feel bad that she won't be able to remember any of it and since we're going now, we probably won't go there again. There's just too many things to see in this world.

Another downfall to planning for next month is it looks like it's our last chance to go to a seminar at AF Hospital for this birth. If we don't get to go next month, chances are, we won't actually go and I think we should go. I also have a problem because I feel like I should be taking some birthing classes but I don't know what to take. It seems like other than the working through the pain and the actual pushing, there's not much more to it. But there must be more, right? Why else do they have classes?

But maybe it's like taxes. This was my first year doing taxes by myself. Normally my dad is nice enough to do them for me. I was worried because I've only heard that it's hard yet it was fairly simple once I figured out which forms I was supposed to fill out. Granted, I made one mistake, but when I entered the tax forms in online, I would've realized it.

Anyway, I guess my next goal is to research about birthing classes.


  1. You should do Hawaii! That would be awesome. I love it there. P.S. I highly recommend my classes. :)

  2. That's so awesome that you guys are taking a fun vacation! I would suggest not to go to the Caribbean right now. The rainy season is about to hit and so you might not be able to enjoy it as much as normal. It rained most of the time we went there so we couldn't even go snorkeling. So, go to Hawaii! From when people have said I think you should take classes. Maybe ask people around you what classes they took? It seems like some sort of breathing class helps you be able to manage the pain.
