I feel like I now have to update everyday so that you all don’t start thinking crazy thoughts like that I’ve had this baby already or something. At this point, I don’t think he’s ever going to come out. He’s going to grow up inside my abdomen. It’ll be akward, but we’ll save on the cost of shoes.

I’ve been getting calls from family members every night for the last few. I think I might just record a message on the machine that says “No. Not yet. Seriously- when it happens, WE WILL CALL.” Do you think they’d be offended? Probably.

I still feel horrible. In fact, worse every day. I’m starting to wonder if it’s actually a cold. At least the shingles have all but cleared up. They aren’t even raised anymore. That’s enough to be excited about right there.

I have a midwife appointment tomorrow morning. Maybe she can give me some good news. Like that I’ll have him before the weekend is over.

One piece of good news that I already have and that is keeping me going: my mom will be here on the 29th. At least her arrival is predictable, unlike some tiny brats I can think of… ahem. She not only has a due date but a due hour and minute. That’s what I’m talking about.

Let’s just get this over with so I can talk about something else, okay? Cause you know I won’t shut up about this until it’s over.

Of course, then you’ll just have to listen to Cole stories.

    Just wanted to say “Hi” and give you a virtual *hug.* The hat is almost finished, it’ll be a little big, I think, but that’s better than too small. I may try to call you tomorrow, if you won’t mind.

    Thank you! I’m so excited to see it.
    We’d love to hear from you any time.

    I can’t remember the title or the author (hell, I may have dreamed it up), but there’s a short story about a 9 month pregnant mexican woman who wants to sneek across the boarder to have her kid in the US. She keeps getting caught. Time goes by and she doesn’t have the baby because she wants to have it in the US. A year passes and she still hasn’t made it. In the end, it’s been so long that the she essentially is just a shell proctecting the child. It’s a weird story.

    Oh, this probably won’t happen to you. ;)
