What am I doing?

37w 6d

Today's post brought to you by Natural Way to Induce Labor No. 164: Spicy Foods

Spicy foods, evidently making pregnant women go into labor since the beginning of time. Oh, and giving them bad gas too.

15 days. 15 DAYS? I could start the next sentence going two ways. I could start complaining about possibly having another 15+ days of "will I or won't I sleep tonight" or "what was that? WHAT WAS THAT PAIN just now?!" OR I could get all giddy and excited and start with the "Like, ohmygod I am going to be a mother soon" rants. I think I will do neither. I think instead I will focus on what I have been doing with my days. I'm sure you are all dying to know because OBVIOUSLY it doesn't take me 16 hours to write these posts.

Most recently, I have been doing a lot of reading and catching up on my backlogged 90210 episodes. I read Dan Brown's Angels and Demons last week and I must agree with my husband that it was WAY better than DaVinci Code. Trust. I have also graduated to the baby books instead of the pregnancy books. I had a little "holy shit I know nothing about babies!" (entirely not true) moment last week with my mom and we sped off to the nearest Borders. Turns out I know a lot more than I think.

I have also been getting myself pretty. Pedicure? Check. Highlights? Check. Eyebrow wax? Check. Half-assed backyard tan? Check! Yep, lookin' as good as I can. All that would complete the look now is a non-protruding belly button and a baby in my arms.

How much longer on the back logged 9-0? I am debating whether or not just to skip to the last few episodes.

I think I have 35? At least now they have re-started from the pilot, so I canceled my season pass.

OK, I wasn't going to say this, but you do know the number one way to enduce labor, right? It's private and there's a chemical in "something that happens" that really CAN cause you to go into labor. :)
