Well I only made it to 38 weeks and 4 days. My mom came down and the day before she had to go home we decided to walk to the park and try to get me to start labor. It worked! They wouldnt let us stay at the hospital until I had been in labor for like ten hours and I was at 5 centimeters. Then they didnt give me an epidural until a couple hours later when I was at 7 centimeters. They refused to break my water to so Bella got really stressed from me being in labor for 22 hours and every time I had a contraction her heartbeat would almost stop. so then I was rushed and only got to push through a few contractions before they decided to pull her out with forceps. We were really worried because the doctors were acting worried and a million people started swarming the room flailing and it got really chaotic. But she came out and they checked her out and an hour later decided she was perfect and let me hold her. I was really happy she was ok. She is the most amazing thing that has ever happened to us. It's not so bad because right now she will eat, sleep 3 hours, eat, poop, sleep half and hour-an hour.............eat, sleep three hours, eat, poop, sleep half an hour- an hour.........so I can get about six hours of sleep a night, three hours at a time, which isn't too bad.

Well so much for being at four centimeters. I thought that meant it was time to have a baby! i guess not... my mom is flying down tomorrow. I hope Bella decides to cooperate and pop out while she is here. The transmission is going out on our car...again. They just rebuilt it a few months ago. It has a two year warranty so I guess they will just have to try again and get it right this time. Anyways that means Kelley has to borrow a car to go pick up my mom at the airport. This guy got a DUI so he isn't allowed to drive his car anyways. But idk what we are gonna do without a car if I go into labor. We have friends that will help us out it's just that I don't want to bug people at like three in the morning or something... oh well. lol.
These are my last three sales before the baby comes. I put my shop on vacation mode for now. I went to my doctor appointment today and kelley got to come because he got a five day weekend for Labor Day. Well he talked to us a little and asked if I wanted to be checked and I said sure. The doctor was all surprised and said I was already at 3 or 4 centimeters. So he asked if I wanted him to strip the membrane (yuck) to speed things up and I said sure. So I have been having lots of contractions ever since especially when I walk and when Im active. They hurt and are hard to walk and breathe through but not consistent enough to go back to the hospital. Luckily the doctor was a nice small asian guy. I liked him a lot. I hate it when you get the huge lumberjack doctor with giant sausage fingers that lubes up his fingers and bellows," Just let your legs fall open...." Yikes!

I finally got a washer and dryer. They were having a 10% off appliance sale with free delivery and plus we got a military discount on top of all of that. The first time we tried to pay they ran Kelley's card as debit and it got declined because it was over the daily limit of debit spending. They said we had to use a different form of payment. So we tried my card as credit and it got declined because for some reason I'm not allowed to run my card as credit (even though I have been to the bank and they have "fixed it" three times) We didn't have any other form of payment so we left. A couple days later I called the bank, "fixed" my card, and drove back to Home Depot. Left my wallet on the couch at home because I had it out while I was talking to the bank. Next day Kelley got home from training in the field and we went back to Home Depot again. The sale was over but they still let us have them with the sale and free delivery. My "fixed" card got declined as credit. Kelley's was approved and now I have my washer and dryer! I am also switching banks!!!!
