BABY edition: Stop messing with me, child!


Now you listen RIGHT HERE. I'm trying to hold you in there until you SHOULD come out, don't go making my body all crazy so that the doctors bandy around crazy sentences like "induce three weeks early" or "possible csection at two weeks early".

Okay? Because your papa has a PHD paper he has to get done, and your mummy wants to meet Diana Gabaldon on the 18th and oh by the way, I have a book to edit/rewrite that will be published so when you're older you can tell everyone your mummy writes for her living, okay? You aren't SUPPOSED to come until April Fool's Day! Don't be a smart ass, darling!



Can't you do that? Because I'm slowly losing my mind here. With seeing two to three docs of some type daily, my patience and sanity levels are quickly sinking into the ever present sludge of OMGMORESNOWMAKEITSTOP!

Yes, boys and girls. This is my brain. This is my brain with baby brain included.

Pity me.

Maybe if you didn't like possums so much she'd stay in your belly longer. You're scaring her! Ha, ha!

I can't wait for Izzy to come! You best be posting massive pics when she has arrived!

Darn kids start misbehaving before they're even born eh?

I wish I could give you a big hug and assure you that it's okay... even if your baby comes early, you can make the adjustments and life will work itself out... it'll be the hugest change ever and no matter what you'll feel all disoriented but it's totally okay!

YOu're allowed to go a little crazy. And it's normal to be a little frightened. Breath, close your eyes, assure yourself that you are amazing and you'll find a way to do everything, whether it's before the birth or after.

Always remember: this can all be a big pain but you get a baby out of the deal!

Perhaps she knows how much we all want to see her...

perhaps if you post pictures of your growing belly she'll be appeased...

just saying...

You think you're losing it now? Just wait 'til the baby's born and you aren't getting any sleep! :p

Seriously, though. Well wishes and sympathy!

Ohh, I hope she can wait until you see Diana, otherwise you must take her to her first literary event, which will only prepare her for YOURS! : ) Hang in there, first babes usually can come two weeks early or two weeks later.

Hang in there - it will all be worth it when you see that sweet little bundle! And a HUGE congratulations on your book!

Hi Jen!

I found you by way of Jen's blog. I don't know which to congratulate you in first, so I'll go in order of upcoming appearance...

Congrats on the coming birth of your baby!! My youngest sister is due any day, too. In fact, my money was on her having little D.J. on Sunday since it was a full moon. I talked to her yesterday, and I swear we had the same conversation you posted about here!

AND, congrats on selling your novel! Whoo-hoo!! You're living my dream, and your story inspires me. Way to go!

I look forward to reading more from you!

Believe it or not I had a sympathy dream for you last night. I was super preggo and about to give birth! Me!!! It was so scary! ~bites nails for you~
Loki- you be nice to your mama. Remember to stay nice and quiet until it's time, and then make yourself and skinny and rope-like as possible on the way out.

You tell that baby she's staying put until you say she can come out.
Tell her I said so.
