When are you due?

This is the best question ever when asked the week that you are due. I went out to dinner with a close friend yesterday to a relatively nice restaurant. I wore my cute maternity maxi dress, which really feels like a nightgown so the joke is on everyone else. Several people asked, "when are you due/" Um, two days!!!

Well that was yesterday. Tomorrow is my due date. Not that due dates mean much. Today I feel totally normal. I've had quite a few Braxton Hicks but truly, nothing new for me. Other than that, I did have a hard time sleeping last night. The first time in the whole 9 months!! I was so freaking hot. Since I didn't sleep well I kinda dozed several hours this morning and Miss B just played next to me. I felt so bad but once I dozed a bit, B and I were able to go about our day.

Like last time, I'm a few days from my induction. I'm not hoping to make it to that, but getting used to the idea. The one nice thing about it is there is kind of a plan in place. It's hard to imagine going into labor in the evening when you have a toddler at home. I've envisioned just driving to the hospital myself so everyone can rest. Don't worry, I won't do it.

As usual, MR. LTM is starting to freak out a bit. I get men. Birth is hard for them because they have no control over anything. I remember the poor guy when I was in labor with B and crying my eyes out when my meds didn't work. He was ready to hurt someone. Not that it was anyone's fault, but he needed someone to blame.

Baby is active today and last night. Actually, she normally sleeps through the night and last night she was having a field day around midnight. Between that and being hot, I thought I would never get any sleep. Then I remembered in a few more days, I won't be sleeping at all! LOL
