So, what kicked my butt into gear?! Well, at Friday's appointment, I had borderline BP again, which is NOT a big deal. What WAS a big deal was the semi-regular "uterine activity" I was experiencing. In other words, contractions! I was a little freaked out, to say the least, and after spending 3 1/2 hours that morning timing and logging them, I rushed to pack overnight bags for both myself and Alistair in the event that my doctor sent me to the hospital for monitoring. Just the thought of POSSIBLY delivering a baby 10 1/2 weeks early had me in tears, but remember, Noah's still in Va and we're still in Md! It would take him at least 3 hours to get here! Thankfully, my doctor decided to just send me home on modified rest for the weekend and have me monitor myself. Things are calm now and so am I. I will be going back to work on Monday and, hopefully, be getting to my due date by just slowing down a bit.
Lots of stuff is happening around the yard these days too! Noah has been home on the weekends and we've been cleaning up storm damage from the blizzards, trimming bushes and getting the garden ready for planting!

We don't beat pinatas anymore! What is this world coming to?)
The landscaping is looking good!

Aren't they just the best?!
