The Escape Club

Hi!  I'm still pregnant!  At least it's only 95 degrees and not over 100.

I had another appointment at the birthing center yesterday.  I weighed in at 185.  Not what I would like to weight, but oh well, I'm nearly done anyway.  I think part of the weight gain was due to swelling and (here comes some TMI) constipation.  I hadn't been drinking enough water later in the week and I could feel it in my fat, swollen fingers.  While at the birthing center I bought some hippy, loose leaf, raspberry leaf tea.  It came in a baggy and looks like hash.  (more TMI coming)  It helps to thin your cervix lining which helps you go into labor.  It also helps with postpartum bleeding.  Sorry fellas, I keeps it real.

I'm starting to waiver on my thoughts that this kiddo is a girl.  I was really certain a couple weeks ago.  I have up until the last minute to call it and so far I'm 2 for 2.  We'll see if I can go 3 for 3.

On Wednesday we went to a small water park in Denton with some friends.  My kids are huge wusses when it comes to water.  It is one area where I have failed as a parent.  Our friend's 18 month old daughter was having a blast, going down slides and walking through the sprayers.  I made Alaurie (5 years old!) go down a slide and she screamed the whole way.  It was a kiddie slide!  But we still had a good time.  Also it was a cool place that I learned, gives swimming lessons and you can pay to use their lap pool.

I'm looking pretty large here.  

Title explanation:  At the water park, the Escape Club's "Wild, Wild West" came on which always makes me think of my cousins.  Our Granny used to walk us down the street from her house to Mr Burger where we would play that song on the jukebox and dance around like weirdos.  It's still in my head.

Tomorrow we have run group in the morning and then I'm going to pick up my bountiful basket.  Then we're headed to Lindee's son's cowboy birthday party.

And here's what the kids are up to with their neighbor friend.

  1. I'll have to remember that raspberry tea tip. All I know for now is that I'm not supposed to be drinking it.

    How much longer do you have? I'll be interested to see if you are right as well!

  2. Good to hear from you! It's been awhile and I wanted to see how you were doing!

    The semi cooler weather is kind of nice huh? We got a lot of rain here in Austin!

    And you look great...180 is what I got up will lose it fast! You look great!

    Have a great weekend, and thanks for the update
