the beer I love so much I named my firstborn after it! (seriously!)
I'm hanging in there. Lots of contraction action today, but nothing labory yet. We'll see what happens after the children go to bed tonight. My mom and sister, who are my kids' support/distraction people for labor, have traveled out of state for my uncle's funeral, which I am very sad to be missing. I would like to meet our baby soon, but I would also like for them to be here. We'll see what the baby would like.
On a totally different note, I actually talked both of my professors into giving my finals early, so I took one yesterday and I'm taking the other tomorrow. Frankly, I don't care at all how I did this semester. I am done with it, and I will never ever ever go to school in a third trimester of a pregnancy again. That should be easy since this is my last pregnancy
. I think I will likely need to take college algebra a second time to get the A that I need/want.
I am a big old cranky b!tch these days. And I've been on crying jags. The last few weeks have been a total emotional roller coaster with everything that has been going on. I'm waiting for the catharsis to kick in. My poor children - I don't think they've ever heard me grumble as much as they have the last few days. I'm getting a massage and going to yoga tomorrow and hopefully that will improve the mood some.
Ina May Gaskin will be speaking at a local midwifery conference this weekend. I didn't pre-register because of the impending child, but now it looks like I probably could have gone. I might just go and pay at the door or something. How cool would that be, to start labor in the same room as Ina May (as well as all the other sweet sweet midwives who will be there)??!!
