Oh good luck with the packing! I hate that part of moving! I'd almost be tempted to do the race knowing that eventually the packing will have to be done, but my more organized side says, pack it all up and then relax!
That image of the naked woman on hands and knees could be me for sure! I don't think I've spent more than a few minutes during labor even sitting on my butt, let alone lying down, and that was only in a tub!
Last night I had this dream about meeting some hot shot OB who had a new contraption for women to labor and deliver on. Basically it was a slab that she was tied down to, and then, when labor didn't progress it had this automatic laser thing that would just go ahead and c-sec her!
All without anyone needing to be there!
I think I might just surf by expedia.com with DrJen's suggestion in mind!
- Have fun! I hope you do get a little dingo meet-up time too! Don't forget we want pictures

Hey, does your company use Zogby polling? I just got a poll about hand washing last week. After I answered that I'm more or less obsessive about it because of the spreading illness thing it said I didn't qualify for the rest of the poll!
Um, could they be looking for certain answers???? Nah, no one ever tries to skew data to get a certain result! What was I thinking!?
As for tea (red raspberry leaf of course!), I usually brew a smallish amount and make it very very concentrated, then I dilute it as necessary and take it in my water bottle.

And no PMS mood swings, insatiable hunger or incredible sweet tooth cravings that I normally get before AF. But yet nothing funny is going on either, in fact i feel great rolling into my 19 mile race tomorrow
Maybe AF is just generously waiting for your race to be over? Could happen!
I am so impressed at your ab work, I hope you don't mind if I try to emulate you in the coming months!
2BBs - So glad you made it through that weekend, it sounded excruciating. Between ex's exit, J, and your upcoming tri I'd say you have lots to be excited about! I'm so happy for you!
