Waiting on Bindi

She's still inside.

That's good, as far as her lungs go.

But man, oh man, the longer I sit in this bed the worse I feel. I don't know what it is. You'd think laying in bed all day would make you fell more rested and not less, right? Not so much for me, though. I have a headache, I'm sore from laying in basically the same position all the time, and I am hitting a little bit of a wall.

My contractions have stopped completely. Completely. So now we just wait, either for them to start back up on their own, or for me or the baby to show signs of needing to deliver right away.

I won't lie, I'm frustrated.

I don't like not knowing what's happening.

A large part of me wants her out here, where I can see her, where the doctors can help her. I don't like waiting for an infection to start or her to go into distress, but I also see how she can benefit from extra time on the inside.

Just one of those things, I guess. The kids are coming to visit today, which is exciting, and I'm really looking forward to it. What I'm not looking forward to is figuring out the logistics of what to do with the kids all through next week if I'm still pregnant. Can we have it be Christmas Break now? That would be nice. My Aunt Lori is flying in on Sunday to help my mom with the kids, so hopefully that means my mom will be able to still make her shifts at work and not miss out on that. I'm really grateful to her for dropping everything and heading down here from Indiana to help us out. Plus, she and my mom are very close, so hopefully they'll be able to have a good time together, too.

Other than that, I'm just sitting here, waiting. Have a mentioned I'm not very good at that?
