Plus I keep having flashbacks of how dreadful it tasted. I'm never doing that again.

Anyway, she said it's probably going to be a few more days. Baby is great, I'm great, but sore, so I'm trying hard to be patient.
I am only 3 or 4 days "late", but I admit, I am getting a little antsy. It is more the phone calls and comments from other people. Yesterday, I went to the chiro, and the woman at the desk (who I actually worked with until I went on leave~she is the office manager) says "WHAT!!!??? Are you STILL pregnant? Why haven't you had that baby yet?!?!?!" I said "K, are you trying to commit suicide by pregnant chick?" She thought it was funny, but it was actually a thinly veiled threat!

I got some not-so-great news from dh about his time off of work next week, which has depressed me a bit. Apparently, it won't be as free as I expected/hoped/planned for/wanted. He may have to go into the office for periods of time, which bums me out. I was expecting to be able to hibernate for a couple of weeks, until I felt like joining the world again. I am sure it will be alright, just not what I was looking forward to.

I'm assuming that marcimamma's having or had her baby since we haven't heard from her since last night.

I'm wondering exactly who's left now...maybe I should start a new thread just to find out.
