D-Day dedication

In honor of my super sure to be right due date that got moved back over 3 weeks I want to dedicate today to T.U.M.S. because I don't think I could have made it this far today without you. (And don't worry....I said my morning offering so my day is officially dedicated to God. But Tums is a real close second.) How else can I tell the difference between going into labor and nasty indigestion???

t-minus 2 to 4 days

Well, my due date ticker says 2 more days and there's an induction scheduled for Friday at 6am if baby doesn't show up for his or her personalized due date. Oh well, we shall see. It is weird actually thinking I might go into labor on my own in the next few days (I'm one for 4 on that concept so far). It makes for weird planning. I have a plan for the day with the constant caveat- I will do this, IF I don't have a baby. It is just a very weird season.

The momo is painfully aware of some big changes coming her way. She loves the baby and every night gives it hugs and snuggle buggles and a kiss from everyone in the family. Then she finishes her routine by sticking her head in front of my stomach and saying "I want you to come out!" She asks me all the time, "You hold me and the baby when the baby come out?" And I have to explain she will have her turn, can sit next to me, etc but I won't be able to hold them both in my arms at once. But she has taken her graduation to big girl very seriously. If you call her a baby, even in a nice way, she retorts, "I not a baby! I a big girl." And at night prayers during the litany of saints she often insists on saying "St. Big Girl, Pray for us." Indeed....we just might need the intercession of the patron saint of big girls around here.

Pop Quiz- Crazy Pregnant Lady Edition

I am a firm believer that ALL pregnant women go insane at the end of pregnancy in some way shape or form. It is truly universal, I am not trying to make myself feel better. I'm really not. Each pregnancy the insanity has taken a different form, but it has always been there. I will obsess about things, brood, generally walk around mentally confused and often talk to myself. Oh and don't forget the insomnia!

Anyway, here's the quiz.

In the last week what weird things have I done?
A. Reorganized my bookshelves by splitting them into hardbacks and paperbacks and then placing them on the shelf by genre.
B. Bought multiple desserts at the grocery store and consumed them furtively, only to be caught by husband eating my second dessert after dinner while writing a blog post.
C. Called up a publisher to track down a book only to discover my all time favorite book is now out of print. Proceeded to lecture the poor man on why the book was desperately needed and then threatened to buy the publishing rights.*
D. Bought 3 copies of the book in question off of ebay.
E. All of the above.

*without first consulting my husband.
