Second journal of the day.. this one without the whining. I've become cone shaped... but.. my rear end isn't nearly as big as I thought it would be at this point! Maybe all those days trudging around the gym were a good thing. Both this picture.. and a new theory that bouncing on the elliptical could put me into labor make me miss it more than ever. I should try to sell them on giving me a week for free because I'm pregnant.. and I would provide entertainment for everyone there. Plus I just got a new book and it seems wrong to read it sitting on a couch with my feet proped up on pillow. I should be sweating and glancing at my heartrate while I read.. not relaxing! Yes.. I'm a few marbles short of a full count. And yes this is probably a glimpse into the future of me on maternity leave.. rest? relax? take it easy??? what are those things? I should probably start shopping for straight jackets. Can you find straight jackets at Amazon? I wonder if they come with free shipping. I wonder how many people will search amazon for straight jackets now.

4 Days to go! I think it was actually a blessing this little one hasn't made his appearance yet. My sister-in-law decided to take her sick child to daycare last Thursday. She pumped her full of tylenol to bring down the fever and dropped her off. 4 hours later with a 102 fever, runny nose, glassy eyed kid.. the sitter called her back. Since then everyone has gotten sick. The sitter, little man, the other two little girls she watches, and of course.. me. Nothing better than being due any day and feel like crap. Can't sleep because I can't breath and I have to pee every 10 minutes.. that's if I don't cough so hard that I don't peesquirt. Yes I said it! Peesquirt peesquirt peesquirt! There is a 10 lb bowling ball compressing my bladder.. and I'm coughing up a lung. Things happen. Oh and can't eat because the kid is also pressing on my stomach which also.. hates coughing. Soo... anyways.. enough whining.. and cursing. I did enough of that on the bathroom floor at 3am Saturday night.

Just for the record. Mowing the lawn, milking cows, carrying 5 gallon pails of milk, cleaning the bathroom, finally packing my hospital bag, and still.. nada. No contractions. No nothing. Just a very active little boy that appears to be attempting to break his way out. He has some serious muscle. I'm still expecting a beard on his arrival. I don't care what the ultrasounds said.

Now I need opinions.. if you're husbands brother who you only see maybe once every 2-3 years has an 11 yr old son with the name Logan. Are you no longer allowed to use the name? I also like Jason which hubby came up with then conveniently forgot he liked. *smacking head*

Another need of opinion.. if you're due in 5 days and your husband spends 3 hours mowing down hay to be baled on Tuesday.. that means 1 day cutting, 1 day flipping and raking, and the next day baling.. and he says.. just wait till Wednesday. It's suppose to rain then. Are you allowed to cause him physical harm? I think he just jinxed me. The kids listen to him. They don't listen to me.

EDIT: I've got it! This baby is our um.. souvenir from an attempted road trip to Illinois. We got as far as Buffalo NY when hubbies universal joint went out on his truck. Resulting in alot of cursing, me yelling just pull over already!, and a hotel stay in West Seneca's Country Inn and Suites.. on Slade Ave. The kids loved it. Nice hotel, pool, and a never ending supply of cookies! So we should name the baby Slade! hehehe.. sent hubby a text with the suggestion.. um.. an hour ago. I don't think he's going to go for it.

Dear baby.. get out. :) 7 days to go! It was strange this morning not packing my gym bag. It was even stranger not going to the gym. I just can't see signing up for another year then not being able to go for a couple months. Maybe longer.. if I know my boss she won't be happy with me taking breaks to pump for nursing and going to the gym during my lunch hour. Heck she gets upset when I put my earbuds in and listen to music on my phone. She's convinced I'm doing something I shouldn't be doing. Like.. um.. enjoying life?? I don't know. Maybe she thinks it's impossible to listen to music and create a piece of artwork in illustrator. I have 6 weeks coming up to figure out how to enjoy life more. Like find a job where I can telecommute because I can't find anything else around here or advance in the company I'm at and switch to another department with a new boss. Or.. write a book and fill a lifelong dream of writing funny smut.

Eating has been easy! My body is convinced it needs to drink it's weight in water. And eat green beans.. I made the mistake of picking up kfc for the boys so I wouldn't have to make dinner. I ate an entire container of green beans by myself. Now all I want is green beans. I can't figure out how kfc makes theirs to give them a little kick. I have all weekend and a giant bag of green beans from the garden to figure it out. By the time I figure it out I will want something else. Like the watermelon that's currently yelling at me from the fridge. At least I'm craving healthy things! If I was craving something bad I would be in trouble. Like pizza.. no wait. Pizza sounds good now. Crap.

Son of a biscuit!! 8 days to go.. absolutely no freaking signs of progress. Unless you count everyone commenting that I've become a cone instead of a bump. What does that means??? I have no freaking clue. All I know is the doctor said this kid isn't arriving anytime soon. I'm still hoping she's wrong. Then again.. I still need to pack a hospital bag, a bag for little man to go to the sitter with, um.. and just about everything else you should do to get ready for a kid. So I have all weekend to prepare.. and nap. I will try to nap second.

Today is the last day that I can go to the gym without renewing a membership I won't use for a while. It isn't necessarily a bad thing. This will force me to use the elliptical, treadmill, bike, resistance bands, free weights... etc that I bought for the house thinking that if I had these things at home available to me whenever that I would well.. workout more. I'm going to have to remember to pick up some dusting supplies on the way home. If I try to workout on them now I won't be able to breath due to the giant clouds of dust they will produce. Depending on how I feel at lunchtime I may run to the store instead and get hospital bag type things and try to workout tonight at home.. as I dust and roll around on an exercise ball in an attempt to get things moving. Not that I'm impatient or anything.. I just want my bladder back. Then again.. I know me and I'm cheap and wanting to get my $10 worth will have me on the elliptical bouncing around. Maybe I should pay myself for using the equipment at home then I would want to get my moneys worth there too.

Good news is baby is healthy, weight is creeping back down to 202.7 so it was probably just something I ate, and blood pressure was 120/80. Even after she told me there was no progress.. And after the girl in the waiting room who was just as far along as me was bragging to her mom she doesn't have any stretch marks. I didn't throat punch her... I wanted to. But I didn't. Mostly because her mom quickly said "Wow I thought you would since you have them all over your thighs!"
