It's HOT

Boy am I grateful that I don't have to go through the summertime being pregnant, because being hot SUCKS!
Although it is quite beautiful outside, and under normal circumstances I'd love it...sleeping is hard enough being this pregnant - but add hot and sweaty to that and you get one ticked off pregnant gal on your hands.
Last night, I had sort of a mini-emotional breakdown...which I was probably overdue for anyway - haha - but poor hubs walked down the hall to find me in the living room at midnight sitting on my big ole bouncy ball on the verge of losing it. He looked at me and goes "what's wrong?" and I looked at him with tears in my eyes and said "I'm just so uncomfortable...and I'm so TIRED, but I can't sleep...I'm just feeling so frustrated - WHY doesn't our baby want to come out???" hahaha! Poor guy just hugged me and said he wished he could do something to make me more comfortable - and I just had to let the tears flow because it was just one of THOSE HORMONAL things, you know?

I had a TERRIBLE night of sleep, mainly because I was hot - but for some reason at about 8am this morning, I was able to find a comfortable spot and I slept until 11am. Yay for a husband who lets me sleep in as long as I want eh??
Once I was up - and definately feeling better after some sleep, we decided to hit a matinee and saw the movie "21" which was really good....we're big Kevin Spacey fans. It was kinda funny because I went to the bathroom after the movie and I was washing my hands and this woman walks up to the sinks and sees me and goes "MY goodness! When are you due?"
and I said "umm, 6 days ago"
and she gaped at me and said "oh my gosh, you're brave - I'd be afraid to leave the house!"
I just laughed...the reactions I get these days are pretty funny.
Then we went to Marshalls and found a nice frame for the sketch we bought - and then hit up Walmart for some oddball items. We're about to load up the pooch and head off to the beach so she can run and jump in the water, and I can tromp through the soft sand and try and walk, walk, walk this baby on out. I didn't have a single contraction yesterday and none today either - so I feel like I gotta get my butt in gear, you know?

My sweet sister in law Carie has decided that she's going to make Eggplant Parmesan for dinner tomorrow night for me. We've both read on the internet that for some reason it's a trigger for labor...which is just ODD - but hell, I'll give almost anything a try at this point...and I've never had eggplant parmesan, sounds yummy.

That's the update for now - still nothing happening...send us all your water breaking thoughts please! hehe

I was hoping the heat, was making you sweat, which would make the middle part of you go - ohhhhhh YES - WATER - and then ba-boosh, water breaking, baby happening.

Pay close attention to the eggplant situation - we get them in our veggie boxes!

Two words: Jumping Jacks.

We were at the beach today, I was keeping a look out for you. I'm thinking Monday is your day.

Isn't there a restaurant in Cali that has salad dressing that triggers labor? I think I read it in People Magazine a while ago so it MUSt be true.
