lol indeed a nice (small!) glass of wine is my birthday wish.

Well that and having Mae.

DH asked me what I wanted to do for my birthday and I told him "Have a baby, but that ain"t happening"


I know it seems sort of negative to think that since its not even nearly noon yet... but I am so sure this little girl is going to come between midnight and 10am that by the time I wake up... If Im not in labor, I have already given up on that day.

Happy Birthday!!!

ETA: It's also my mom's birthday party today (her real birthday was this past Tuesday), so when I am making her strawberry poke cake, I will dedicate some to you.

Hmmm, the perfect gift for a really pregnant wife, imo would be 1) dinner somewhere she's been really craving, 2) nice long back and foot rub, and 3) calling over some friends to help deep clean and organize the entire house. While she is having said glass of wine.

Is it sad that the thought of others cleaning and organizing the place would be the bestestest gift ever right now?

I hope you have a happy birthday and that you get to celebrate and distract you from labor enough to have it sneak up on you

Happy Birthday, MP! I am going to do my best to get my son out to wish you a happy one, too!

Thinking of you and hoping that if you're right about Mae's timing, you'll hit transition at midnight! Go girl!

Mary, proud to be a mama to Andrew (9/14/10) and Caroline (7/27/13) and wife to Matt.

Home!

About to go to bed.

Had eggplant parmesean and a very nice glass of white wine.

Didnt make the contractions go away or make them worse but did indeed make me just not care about them lol.

Sang at the top of my lungs the whole way home with DH (not from the alcohol lol... we like to do that when we are alone together.)

neighbor who watched my kids while I was out had them each make me a picture frame with a picture of them in it... they have magnets on the back so now they are on my desk lampshade next to my bed <3

Also got Mae her baby book FINALLY... and its a good one, very perfect for me as it has different questions than most (I hate the typical question ones and like the ones with questions the kids will care about when they are older... like what mommy craved, how mommy and daddy met, what we were doing when we realized we were in labor (mommy and daddy separately! Btw, that is one of my favorite stories about my own birth that my parents tell me!)
