A haiku is 5,7,5 right?

26 days left.
It could happen any time.
Damn. I’m so nervous.

Yeah it’s not good. Bite me.

I went to the midwife this morning. Everything looks good. She seems to think that Cole is now about 7 lbs, 6 oz!!!! How big is this little booger going to get?! John and I were both 8 lbs somethin’ and over 20 inches long. She could be wrong, but I don’t think she’s too far off. She’s a VERY experienced midwife. Good news though: I tested negative for Group B Strep. That means that I don’t have to get antibiotics during labor which means no IVs or intramuscular butt shots. YIPPEEE!! I was really stressed about needing to have one of those.

She seems to think that I should try to go early. I wouldn’t mind if it weren’t for the hassle that would create here at work. It would mean taking more than my allotted 6 weeks off so that we wouldn’t have to put Cole into daycare for a while longer (something I’m totally DREADING doing in the first place). I’m going to have to try to hang in there for as long as possible. I think I’m one of the only women ever who has wanted to go late!

I was really bad and had a packet of peanut m&ms; this afternoon. I figured that, since I hadn’t gained any weight ths last week, I could sort of justify it. Plus, I was working on something annoying and getting really cranky. I needed a sugar and protein boost. Of course, I’ll go home and want to eat the rest of my ice cream too. And then nachos. And maybe a cheez-it chaser.

The people here at work are thinking of starting a Weight Watchers group. Maybe I should think about joining after Cole is born… In roughly 26 days I won’t be able to blame this butt on the baby anymore.
