28 Days!

Where did that come from so quick!?! Last I looked at the calendar (yes... I marked down the days on my calendar lol) it was still over a month, now less than a month before the baby's due? Just wow...
 My body's preparing, though my last doctor appointment I still hadn't made any progress. For the past 3 weeks I've been having Braxton Hicks contractions every day, and just last night I lost my mucus plug (tmi, I know, but how exciting!). My next appointment is Wednesday (December 22) so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I'm making progress and at least started dilating a little bit.
Things still aren't looking up for us financially, but Jer's done a lot of work to "The Cornfield Corvette" so hopefully she holds up and gets him through a few full weeks of work so we can get caught up on everything. It's stressful to think about every day, but with no eviction notice yet and signs of baby coming growing nearer, it's hard to stay so worried all the time :)

Reliving the roller-coaster

Things have been.... not exactly looking up, but we've been able to make ends meet and start to catch up with our bills. Then the week of Thanksgiving came...

Jer's truck had broken again, he worked 2 days, then had Thanksgiving and that Friday off. This week he worked Monday, and Tuesday, but used the money from both days on fuel. Then he took today off. Tomorrow he's got one load to South Dakota and that's more than likely all he'll have time to do.

We have November's rent paid now finally, but have nothing paid on December yet. Two months behind on phone/cable/Internet, electric and gas (heat). We've now got a loan payment for the semi, gas for every week dr appointments for me, finishing buying baby stuff, and of course rent. I don't think we'll be able to make it this month. After last month getting caught up I really felt better and thought things were just going to continue to move forward. But with Jer losing 2 or 3 days of work a week is just going to kill us. I don't think we'll be able to pick ourselves up after this month. I have a really bad feeling in my gut that this is going to be it.
