dakipode, so glad your baby shower is happening after all :)
a budgeting class sounds great. we need to do two more classes, a CPR class and an infant care class. looking to sign us up for the dates in September.

I am worried that me not wanting to give birth is leaving me with emotional baggage that might make labor longer or more painful (since on some level, I am fighting his arrival). Any suggestions?
aidenn, can't get around a pool in Florida eh? ;) good luck!
as for the birth, being a FTM, i am only partially excited about the birth but mostly scared of the unknown and an experience i imagine to be rather painful. i am letting myself be inspired by my growing discomfort in these last weeks.. imagining soon i'll have "my old body" back (well in one way or another, at least). i'll be able to turn around in bed again (assuming i ever get to catch some sleep again?). i'll hopefully be rid of the back pain and the constant peeing and my general fatigue etc etc.. does that work tring to get yourself somewhat excited for the birth??
Serena, whatever happened to your plans to fly to Kenya (?) ? i'm thinking you must be getting close to that trip, no?
CDsMom, whoa! is it "ok" to lose a part of your plug or are you going to get it checked out? i keep thinking i'm about to lose my plug but i think that's just this pressure i'm feeling at the moment.
i am in my second week of maternity leave and not feeling terribly useful at the moment. i'm taking naps almost every day cause i have trouble sleeping at night. i have a lot of stuff on my to do list but don't know where to start right now. i guess i should start with the disability insurance since it's somewhat pressing timewise if i wanted to apply for it.
we're expecting the car seat to get here any day now, so we're planning on getting the car cleaned out and checked out soon too. would make a good goal for this week to get all of that behind us.
DF just told me he wants to start packing the hospital bag today.
i think i've had some success to get him to stay at home for the remaining time and have his weekly band practice in our place instead of that other guy's place. hooray!
hope this week will unfold to be more productive than it looks like right now!
