Contractions, expensive day, and some more home decor & organization pictures

I officially started trying to kick start labor yesterday. I saw my acupuncturist, who targeted some stimulating points, and it was crazy, but I could actually feel baby girl dropping lower during and after the session. I followed that up with a 30-minute steep neighborhood walk with the dogs in the evening. Afterwards, I started experiencing some longer, more frequent contractions, but they still didn’t feel like anything more than just tightening and never became regular. I went to bed relatively early, and they went away. It was great to sleep almost 8 hours, even if it was interrupted.

The repairman came out this morning to look at our dryer, which has been burning and melting our stuff off and on over the last few weeks. Unfortunately it needs the drum completely replaced, and on a 30+ year old dryer, that is impossible to find. So we ended up going online to research, and found a reasonably priced, well-rated LG washer/dryer combo – thank goodness for Memorial Day sales! Technically our washer still works, but it doesn’t wash very well, and the new one is a high-efficiency top-loader, so it’ll use less water and detergent, definitely a big plus with the drought nowadays.

Oh yes! Here is our reorganized linen closet, pantry, and kitchen closet. I also attached hooks to the inside of the pantry door to hang my pump accessories and bottle cooler that will be traveling to work with me. It makes me so happy to be able to see where everything is so easily now. If I get a chance, I’ll be adding labels too.

I decided to use my HomeGoods gift card today to finish up decorating parts of the house. We’ve lived here almost 3 years, but it finally feels more homey, and ready to welcome home our baby girl! ❤

    • Ha, you’re my second friend to mention the popcorn! Yup, I buy it in bulk when I see it on sale! Hoping acupressure and acupuncture do move things along. They want to schedule an induction for me at 41 weeks.
