- Even your husband is nesting.
- Your ankles are bigger than your feet.
- People have stopped asking if the baby came yet, because they don't want to be yelled at again.

Let's hear it mamas! I'm 41 weeks today and trying to keep it light.

High-altitude mama sweatin' it out in the South. Mama to DS, Feb. 07, and DD, April 2010.

I'm not overdue, but my DH sure is nesting! He's recently gotten on this big cleaning & donation kick. I think we took 8 bags of stuff to Goodwill over the weekend....and that was only from our DD's room! LOL Part of it is that we are going to have to move by the end of May, but part of it seems to be his nesting urge. I guess it's good that one of us is nesting, b/c it sure isn't me.

I recently changed my username, but I still say "Hello" to all those who know me in real life! Hi P, S, T and K!

..when you stop making baby clothes and start making toddler-sized clothes, 'cause otherwise they're not going to fit your baby by the time he/she is born.

Mama to a couple of full-moon caul-bearing rockstar girls:
9yo and brand new as of 4/28/10!

When you get thirsty, drink a big glass of water and then feel so full that it's like you pigged out on a huge turkey dinner.

-Get really disappointed when you don't feel contractions for a while.
-When you try to make deals with your baby like "If you come out today, I'll give you every cent in the bank account to spend on toys."
-When you look longingly at your non-maternity clothing and wonder if you should just say "to hell with it" and box it up for Goodwill.

When you can feel the birth tub taunting you from the living room- "You wish you were in here right now, don't you? But you're not. I'm empty because you aren't in labor yet. Neener neener neener!"
