The Greatest Creation of My Life | Week 38

Good news and bad news this week – Tina is having contractions! What’s the bad news? – you might ask. Well, just ask Tina. They hurt. (EDIT: Contractions are normal for many weeks before labor, so don’t get too excited)

They’re seldom and very intermittent, but they are definitely happening. At least I have something to talk about in this week’s blog post. Other than my obviously deranged dreams over the past week, nothing much else has been happening. Somehow we thought the end of the pregnancy would be more exciting than it is. It’s actually quite … boring.

But it’s for real. We’re having a baby. Soon.

Last night, we picked up the playpen / bassinet that we ordered online (regretfully) from everyone’s favorite major retailer. Aside from the “wonderful” experience we had in the store and the fact that it won’t fit through the door when put together, it’s a great product sporting a pretty neat airplane design and some really cool features. Obviously I like. Hopefully the baby and the mommy will also enjoy it.

I know I promised some photos in last week’s post, but we just haven’t had a proper day to go do these things. Work has been crazy, and I’m doing my best to leave few tasks open when I take leave for the baby. It’s been tough. We will take some pictures this weekend, for sure.

So anyways, I’m hopping on the be-back-bus … I’ll be-back next week. Cheers!

  1. Hey,

    I love the playpen too! And I figured out how to get it to fit through the door, so now it’s definitely one of my favorite purchases so far. It’s going to be very convenient for taking the baby on overnight trips to the grandmother’s houses.

    Happy Valentine’s day, Ree-chard! I can’t wait till you get home from work, so we can celebrate the adoption of the guinea pig. Love you!!!

    1. I didn’t think geometry could lie – I’m going to need to see you fit that playpen through the door!!!

      Hopefully some delicious Italian food tonight will make that weekend labor happen for you! I’ll tell them to make it spicy!

      Happy Valentine’s Day to you also my lovely!

  5. I was having contractions for 3 weeks before my daughter was born. It was really annoying in the end but now I finally have my cute little girl <3. Try to relax and get as much sleep as possible ;).
