36 days to go...

36 days until my due date.  The days are going fast and the nights are extremely long.  I am too uncomfortable to sleep.  I'm not sure how much sleep I am actually getting between my journeys to the bathroom and thrashing pillows around and shoving them behind my back and under my legs.  Last night, around 4 am, I actually got up and set up camp on the couch downstairs which has firm cushions and I can sit upright.  Once the sun started to rise a little, the dogs started walking around and Joey got up to take a shower so I peeled my body off the leather couch and went back to the air conditioning in our bedroom to try to muster another hour of sleep.

I wonder if sheep become this miserable towards the end of their pregnancies.  This must be why we don't have them lamb in summer.

We have been very busy around our little farm, building a new hoop-house, gardening, and trying to prepare for baby's arrival.  This weekend we are getting a new ram lamb.  I will try to keep you all posted as I near my due date, but bear with me if posts are sporadic.  Big changes ahead!

  1. I found your blog through J's blog and I enjoy reading your entries. I love the stories about the lambs, both the good and the bad. I wish you the best.
