Large & In Charge

Me, that is.  I'm incredibly large and in charge, well, of our household at least :)

Yes, still pregnant.  38.5 weeks.  Granted our due date isn't until Jan 10th, but I've been off work since December 21st and am bored!!  I just want baby to come so I have something to do - yes, I do realize how crazy this is.

I'm feeling good - getting uncomfortable/tired/winded easily, but nothing miserable.  I haven't slept more than 4 hours at a time in the past week, so I guess that makes me 'ready' to have a newborn.  The good news is since I am already off work (I work in a school and we're on break anyway), it doesn't matter if I have normal sleep or not.  It's cool to sleep from 5-8pm and then again from 6-10am - isn't that what everyone does?!!

My husband really wants a tax-credit baby - apparently we get an extra $5K if this baby is born in 2012 - but I don't see that happening in the next 22 hours.  I've had no labor pains/contractions/symptoms at all, so that's not gunna happen.  Honestly, I think I'll go after my due date, but who knows.

In the mean time, I've been relaxing, putting my feet up, catching up on some good books and watching some great old school movies.  A Time to Kill, A League of Their Own, A Few Good Men, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, you know, the good stuff :)

I hope you all had a great Christmas and any other holiday you celebrate.  Happy New Year!!


  1. Happy Baby Time! Yay! I don't think the tax thing will be that much, so don't sweat it. :)

  2. Awe you are adorable! Best wishes for the birth of your child. Jan 11 is a great b-day...just sayin'!

  3. Best wishes for these last few days - I remember how hard that was and how anxious I became! And I was 5 days late with my daughter too which played huge mind games with me! As soon as they "schedule" something for you, that's when you'll go into labor!
    BEST WISHES to you!
