Despite my conspicuous absence, there is no baby here yet.
Rather, I have not been able to sit in front of the computer for several days because my back is so screwed up. In fact, for a few days I was having trouble even walking or getting out of bed or off of the couch. Thanks to Tylenol with Codeine (oh miracle of miracles!), I am doing marginally better, though I still wander around at a snails pace and can’t lift or bend.
Today I feel “funny.” I haven’t decided if it’s early labor or codeine reaction. Any guesses from the peanut gallery?
When I can sit longer and think a little better, perhaps I’ll write some deeper reflections.
For now I’m just recovering and waiting for baby who is “due” this coming Sunday. We’ll see what she decides.
