Independence day weekend day 1

So today, Saturday, is the first day of the holiday weekend and I didn't do a whole lot I had some more Red raspberry leaf tea to try to help with labor, I took a nap, played with my moms dog, sat on a yoga ball all day and watched some YouTube videos.

Sitting on the yoga ball ALL day!!

I also did dishes and cleaned up the house a little bit. I was going to go swimming but it was super hot 116 degrees!! There was an overcast but I really didn't want to get burnt.. I walked some laps around the house.

I actually had a few more "real" contractions today nothing super strong or anything. Just very light "menstrual" like cramping. I was hoping the tea and the light contractions would get a bit stronger and everything but nothing... I have had two today so far and I think I will have another or two before I go to bed tonight.

This was the simple makeup I wore

I am really hoping to have pizza tonight for dinner, I am super duper hungry right now, and really craving pizza and bread sticks. I probably won't have it but that would be delicious!

Tomorrow we are going to have a brunch for the holiday and my brother is in from out of town (Chicago) so that should be fun and yummy! Tiffany and I will also be going to our house to maybe do some laundry and check in on our pups who I miss sooo much!! I really can't wait to see them I know they are going to go crazy!

I may do some more of Reina's laundry too while we are there just to get it done. I'm not sure I haven't decided. Right now as I am writing this I am having a slight contraction. It's definitely different than a Braxton Hicks I can say that I can tell the difference.

feeling huge @ 38weeks 5days just out of the shower (explains the hair)

Speaking of that (the difference between contractions) I was really worried that I wouldn't be able to tell the difference or not know when to go to the hospital etc. I am pretty sure that now I have a way better idea of what I will be experiencing, not saying I know the exact feelings and everything nor am I prepared but I can definitely feel/tell the difference.
