38 weeks

Every week during my pregnancy I get update emails on the development of my baby and pregancy from Babycenter. This is what I am SURE it meant to say this week:

Congratualtions! You are now 38 weeks pregnant. You have an ENORMOUS ass, just like everything else on your body. Do not let anyone see you naked for fear of heart attacks. This baby is not going to come out. You will be pregnant forever.

I went to see my midwife today. Who, by the way, is awesome. I love going to a midwife. They are so much more down to earth than an OB. I wish I had gone to one each time. She poked and prodded and did terrible things to me today. I'm going in again tomorrow for some more torture. There was NO progress this week so I am bummed. 2cm dilated and 50% effaced. She wants me to meet her at the hospital on Saturday so she can "mess with the labor gods" and hopefully get me to 4 cm. What the heck does that mean? I'm terrified. Dan is home this weekend, so it would be really nice for this little monster to make his appearance. Is it bad to call your unborn son a jerk?

All I can say is do WHATEVER she says and you will have this baby as quickly and easily as possible!!! I knew you would enjoy the midwifery experience. If had more time, I would honestly consider becoming one. I definitely want to be a breastfeeding instructor. Miss you!

Somehow I feel left out of this conversation...wonder why? Is there such a thing as a midhusband? What does he do?
Labor Day's a comin'...unfortunately for you its still in September. Hope you're feeling patient. Apparently women should only get pregnant in December so their Labor can begin at Labor day...
Ok its late and I'm basically free-associating. Its fun, come trip with me some time.

One time my midwife came in with a man and said that he was a student there to observe. I found that fascinating. And wondered myself, what would he be called? Who would go to a mid-husband anyway?

I was a labor day baby! HA! It's funny that your brother says that. Anyway, think: "I WILL have this baby THIS weekend" now, say it 10 times in the mirror at midnight on a full moon. :)
