Erik has to work late today. He is going to work, then going to a photo shoot mid-day, then back to work. So I hope Harper will hang in there a little longer. I mean if I go into labor, of course Erik will leave work immediately and come get me. But panicking while trying to figure out how to do ahold of him during a photo shoot doesn't sound very appealing. So I am going to stay seated and try not to walk around too much (walking is supposed to help induce labor. If you go for a walk or march up some stairs it is thought to bring on labor because of the pressure of the baby's head pressing down on your cervix. At the very least, walking can help get your baby into a better position for labor.) Once Erik gets home I want to take several walks around the block! O, the day in the life of a pregnant women.
If Harper comes on Saturday... he will arrive on the day of the South Carolina vs. Furman game. I went to Carolina and Erik went to Furman, so that would be kind of fun. I convinced Erik to cheer for the Cocks. I think everyone wants to see Marcus Lattimore rush over 200 yards tomorrow. That kid is a BEAST! Seriously, he is so much fun to watch. You think he is going to be tackled then somehow he manages to break the tackle and gain 7 more yards, He is the real deal!
Ha!!! I think we were dancing at tailgate
This is a really RANDOM post. Sorry folks but I am bored. Very, very, bored. Let's see what else...
Last week I went to Spartanburg Regional for a few pregnancy classes. They were wonderful and I highly recommend checking them out if you live in the Upstate. Best part, they are FREE!!
I am pretty sure it is impossible to fully prepare yourself for motherhood. But I think taking as many classes and reading as much material helps ease some of the normal fears.
Erik started playing in a new band here in South Carolina. He seems very excited. I think he was having music withdrawals! His friend from Nashville, Jameson, happened to move down to Greenville recently and missed playing music. So they decided to get together and start playing. They have a show scheduled at USC Upstate in October and they hope to book more shows across South Carolina. I think it is going to be great for Erik and I love listening to him practice. The new band, "Palmetto", is playing more country music and Southern Rock music. So I have had fun trying to convince Erik to learn a few Dierks Bently and Kenny Chesney songs! I think they found a drummer and another guitar player. So they should be playing soon!
I decided to make a few fun song lists because the CDs in my car were old and getting on my nerves This could quite possibly be the most random group of songs ever. But sometimes you just need a crazy mix in the car! I thought I should share:
1) "Ocean Avenue"- Yellowcard
2) "Say It Ain't So"- Weezer
3) "Sunday Bloody Sunday"- U2
4) "Last Dance With Mary Jane"- Tom Petty
5) "Jumper"- Third Eye Blind
6) "Wrong Way"- Sublime
7) "Interstate Love Song"- Stone Temple Pilots
8) "Jet Airliner"- Steve Miller Band
9) "Do It Again"- Steely Dan
10) "She Don't Know She's Beautiful"- Alan Jackson
11) "Brass Monkey"- The Beastie Boys
12) "Juicy"- Biggie Smalls
13) "Good Directions"- Billy Currington
14) "Sideways"- Citizen Cope
15) "Mr. Jones"- Counting Crows
16) "Ants Marching"- Dave Matthews Band
17) "Lots of Leavin' Left To Do- Dierks Bentley
18) "Long Train Runnin'" -The Doobie Brothers
19) "Dirt Off Your Shoulder"- Jay-Z
Ok, I guess that is enough random thoughts for the day. I am off to double check the nursery and hospital bags. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
