The countdown is on . . . .

Begging and Pleading works!!! I just wanted to schedule the c-section so that I could start planning!!! My doctor Rocks! This girl will be having a girl on Monday, March 24th around 7:30 am!!! That is the day after Easter!! I'm so excited - just to know when it is to happen!!! Woohoo!!!! But while I was there {at the dr's appointment,} I was scheduled for physical therapy!!! Yes, you read right . . . . physical therapy!!!

See, only a few know about my mishaps around the house. Mishaps being falling down the stairs {3 times!!} And that would be in a 4 day period!! My legs have just given out on me. Or I like when I bend down to pick up stuff {normally toys} and I can't get up! Then I'm down on the floor for 15 to 30 minutes with my kids chanting and screaming as they circle around me!! It makes me feel like a dead animal and they are the vultures. Matter-of-fact, I feel like some kind of dead animal when this happens. I'm sure most of you have had the same problem - SCIATICA NERVE. For several weeks, I've had to sleep sitting up {on the couch} because I can't lay down without being in excruciating pain. I had a mild touch of it with the other pregnancies {just didn't know sciatica was the problem - thought it was just normal aches with pregnancy} , but this time it is little more like severe!!!

I already had my first PT today - and man it felt awesome!!! It was a little odd having another man rub on my hips and legs - but I really didn't care after the pain started to diminish! I think I might need this type of therapy after the birth of this kid!! haha

So let the countdown begin -We will meet Emsley Grace in 8 weeks and 5 days!! Oh - have I told you guys that I haven't even done the first thing to get ready for this kid!!! Yeah - I know - pathetic!!

Oh but in true Kim Tate Wheeler form--it will all be complete and not a minute detail will be left out in her room BEFORE she comes. I know it!

Glad you are feeling better too!

Woohoo! On getting a date! I am sure that you will have it all together by then if you could stay off those stairs!

Congrats. I am due in June with baby #3 and we still don't know what we are having yet, but I am ready, just like you.

I am so sorry that you are in pain. I didn't know you were having so much trouble....

So my doctor mentioned the exact same date! He said that is if we can hold off that long. You know how that goes. As for the room you are doing better than me but I guess it helps to know what you are having...hehe
