Yes, still here


Yes, still knocked up.

For those who emailed wondering if they whisked me off to have Tessa today – nope. My blood pressure was better today so it looks like we are on for the 29th. And all of the contractions I’ve been having have had no effect on my cervix – still zipped up tight.

The fun part of being this pregnant is watching people. No one wants to ride in an elevator with me (we’ve all seen several movies or tv shows where the elevator gets stuck and the woman goes into labor). But everyone holds doors and sometimes (like at the ice cream shop the other day) people let me jump in front of them in line. Male clerks at stores seem to fear me – they seem afraid that I might randomly scream at them because one of their kind did this to me so they quickly help me and then scurry off. I see women mummer to their husbands or each other about how I must be about due and how uncomfortable I must be in this heat. It all just makes me laugh.

    Funny how I am remembering the crazy doc wanting to sew you up…

    Hey the 14th is a great day to have a baby… but whatever works for you and the doc will be great I am sure.

    It is getting SO close!

    Glad you’re still on the pregnant boat with me!

    You know that I’m really loving lately. The crotch graze – it’s where people ask you when you’re due and when you say “really anytime now” they can’t HELP but to do a eye graze past your crotch like your baby might FALL right out in front of them. It’s classy and great in a way I never knew possible.
