So nice to know you ladies are here. I'm 41+1 today and tears are streaming down my face as I type this.
I got so little sleep last night because I was so uncomfortable and Baby was so low. I thought surely I'd go into labor. Just when I was drifting off, DH shook me awake because I was snoring loudly. Yeah, let me tell you how that did NOT go over with me, especially when I couldn't get back to sleep for hours.
This morning I got up early to do chores around the house (might as well) and DH is like "you're up early; are you excited about the baby?" I prettymuch just glared at him.
Yesterday, I was wincing as I waddled out of the post office and this stranger exclaimed "Wow! You look like you swallowed a basketball!" and I started crying on the spot.
I've lost my car keys, but I can't drive from all the contractions anyway. I'm burning up my too short already maternity leave because I'm too exhausted/crazy to work. Every time the phone rings, I scream "leave me ALONE!!!"
Y'all, I am losing it big time. I'm so sad and just totally worn down. My u/s on Tuesday (though I know they're notoriously off) estimates this babe tobe, on the very lowend, 7 lb 13 oz, but they think he's probably more of a 9lb-'er. I'm so huge and still scratching myself until I bleed from the remaining PUPPP rash. I just want to go to sleep and wake up in a month. Please send your loving thoughts my way. I'm heartsick.

Cranky McGluestick checking in.
Last night, my very good friend called about 9:30 p.m. to ask me if I thought her contractions were real/strong enough to go to the hospital. Her EDD? 9/24.
By 12:15, her husband called to tell me she'd had her baby. I have spent a lot of time with her today and I am sorry to say I did burst into tears when I saw her holding her baby and when I held her baby. Then a chaplain came in and said a prayer over the new family...and I cried again. I am SO happy for her (she is one of my best people! I love her!), I truly am, but when will it be my turn?! She looked a lot better rested than me today, probably because she was snuggling a baby and sleeping all night. I, on the other hand, could not get comfortable and peed every 30 seconds.
I have become a full-time harpy!!!
So after my mom and I went back to visit my friend to help her establish her BF latch and then to the health food store, my mom's practically brand new car would not start. The battery was so dead it couldn't even be charged; it had to be towed. And the dash thermometer read 101! Oh, and the store had closed, so we had to wait in the heat until my husband could get there from the other side of town to rescue us. AWESOME.
Is trouble following me around or do I just attract it every time I move to a new spot?
41 + 3 today. And stayin' alive.
