A list

1. My brain is a mash of to-do lists and snatches of random song lyrics.

2. My feet are so swollen that it hurts to walk. Nothing will help except going home and sitting on the couch.

3. The baby is so low--even though the midwives tell me he's still "high"--that it hurts to walk.

4. I don't think we're going to actually ever have a baby. I think I'm just going to be pregnant. Forever. Much less fun.

5. I've gotten about 10 hours of sleep in the past two nights combined. See also number 1.

6. After six months or more of shopping, looking, browsing, thinking, and much hemming and hawing, I ordered fabric to MAKE a diaper bag. I have officially lost my mind.

7. I have two UPS packages coming today. One is a stroller and the other is clothes. These are all for the baby that will not actually come but will remain lodged in my uterus until the end of time.

8. Why are all words associated with reproduction weird? Uterus. It's a weird word. I could give more examples, but I'll just leave it at that.

9. I'm glad Paul was able to learn to be content in every situation and all, but he was never 39 weeks pregnant.

10. Why, yes, I would like some cheese.

Witty list. Looking forward to meeting your baby boy and seeing your completed diaper bag. :)

This made me laugh. Particularly #10.

Hilarious. And I've been here!!! Hang in there! That pain from the baby being "low" is so awful, and hard to explain to a non-pregnant husband/kids, and frustrating when medical professionals talk about how "high" the baby is...how close are you?? And just to state the obvious...you WILL be done. It will be over. And someday soon you'll be sending your newborn bouncy seat to Goodwill and getting choked up knowing that this really IS your last baby. And at that point you will NOT be pregnant anymore, I promise. :)
