OK, it's 11:12 in the morning and I've done basically nothing and feel incredibly grumpy and tired and overwhelmed by life; so I'm gonna write things down as I do 'em in an effort to motivate myself....

DD was induced for pre-eclampsia at 39+4, so I don't know how late I would have gone with her. DS was 41+1. I hated it. It was driving me insane.

This time around I'm on Prozac, which apparently...

I still haven't seen the second OR third instalments of The Hobbit, precisely because I AM a huge LOTR fan. :p I loathed what Peter Jackson did with The Hobbit. Don't get me started.

My friend's baby shower went well! Enough people turned up to make it not-pathetic, despite the torrents of rain. And I finished the cake and cookies in time... barely.

Well, we've been *pretty* good this week. I delayed our grocery shop by a good three days; we had some meals that were slightly odd, but tasty, and it forced me to use up a lot of stuff (veggies in...

It actually felt labour-y, kind of. The clutching a wheatie bag to my abdomen, the waves of pain, the 'should I wake DH up yet or not?'... except, you know, infinitely more pointless and yes,...

So I ended up in hospital at 5:30 this morning with a wicked UTI and some concerns about preterm labour. That was fun.
