(Yup, still pregnant.)
39 weeks into pregnancy #2 (and final), nary a stretch mark to be found.
As I was getting into bed Sunday night, I noticed that the toes on my left foot felt a little funny. So I looked, and indeed, my left foot was looking a little puffy. This is the first swelling I've had with this pregnancy. On Monday morning, I finally ditched my wedding ring as it was becoming ever so slightly uncomfortable.
I have never vomited while pregnant.
All my shoes still fit.
Anyway, this labor thing. How does that work, exactly? I mean, I am not in labor right now. Will I just be in labor all of the sudden at some point? Or does it sneak up on you all gradual like? Will I get a memo stating I may find myself in labor at some point in the next 12 hours? Am I more likely to go into labor if I expend the effort to actually hang the pictures we finally framed for the nursery, or more likely to go into labor if I leave them all piled up in the crib? This whole "wait and see" thing really isn't working for me.
(Chris had some critical, could-not-be-missed work whatever at 10:00 Monday morning and did not tell me about it until 10:00 Sunday night. Which, dude! Clearly, that was when I was meant to deliver this baby but 12 hours just is not enough warning and now I've totally missed the opportunity and am going to be pregnant forever and it is ALL HIS FAULT, just like everything else in the world.)
(Additionally, are men lacking some genetic whosiwhatsits that allows for the loading of a dishwasher, or is my husband just trying to drive me fully around the bend?)
