Nice weekend

I had an interesting weekend. Friday I went to see my midwife and she examined me and poked at me in evil ways. (She's trying to get me ready for labor) So for the next 24 hours I was SURE I was in labor because I was having consistent contractions. Then Saturday afternoon after a bath, they stopped. Darn! Actually though, that is good because I am SO not ready. Third time around, I think you set up the baby's room while you are in labor.
Sunday I was planning a leisurely lunch with my mom while my dad babysat. We went down to this fun little restaurant in La Jolla. When we showed up, there was a little party there. My mom had arranged a mini baby shower for me. I had told them over and over I did not want a shower. The thought embarrassed me - this is my THIRD kid and so close together. But it was a great surprise. I loved all the gifts. However, I said that the greatest gift would be a great big basket full of various contraceptives...that is really all we need!

That is so nice!!! What is the point of be given contraceptives if you NEVER use them!!!! Good grief the poor people will be throwing away good money!!! STOP sharing soap with your husband until he has his jewels rearranged!!!

Miss you, I wish I could have been there!!

You're seeing a midwife. That's cool. When are you due anyway?

I am due April 3rd. And I LOVE seeing the midwife. I had a family doc the first time and liked him alot. Last time I went to an OB and hated it, and now a midwife. I am very happy with her.
