Threat level indicator has been upgraded to yellow nail polish in honor of turning 39 weeks. Mercy seems to be settling down the last few days. Also, putting lots of parsley on my pizza did seem to get me contractions. No baby, of course. It's not 2016 yet.
Yeah, I think I had one whole contraction today. Woot woot.
Had a wonderfully luxurious mani/pedi that cost an OBSCENE amount of money, even with a promo coupon. But hey, my nails and toes will be KILLER if I ever have this baby. Maybe I can use that french manicure as a focal point during labor.*

Oh gosh, Karey Tuschoff's voice already drives me batty. She's so darn cheerful all the time. I find myself twitching during that "Deepening" CD all the time just because she's so cheerful. I can see myself throwing shoes or something at DH's stereo. Maybe I should use the mp3 player so he doesn't try to kill me during labor as I systematically destroy his precious stereo.
And thanks for the reminder that I should probably listen to that last CD to make sure it works. I think you're not supposed to do that until 38 weeks and I'm 39 now - slacker.
* This, of course, assumes I will ever go into labor, which I will not. Not before the nail polish wears off, at least.
