I think at this point (correct me if I'm wrong, I can't remember every single person who is still pregnant) everyone is scheduled for an induction if their babies don't come like in the next few days???

I'm still business as usual...trying to hold off on baby this weekend so the kids can be there...all of my snafus with dad being out of town and parents watching my sister's kids are now past...after Sunday night everything will work out perfectly in that department...Mon and Tues should be easy days for me....Wednesday is difficult because I work all day with no break and then go to 2 doctors appointments (one for the baby, one for Justin and Sierra afterwards) and then Thursday is Curriculum Night...I will be working from 8 am to 8 pm (not including an hour drive there and back) with about an hour break for dinner. Curriculum Night is killer if you AREN'T pregnant...I can't imagine doing it now. Then when I get home I have to leave for work again 10 hours later.

So I'm hoping by Wed night I can go into labor.

I still hope she doesn't miss Glee with me on Tuesday, though =)

My good contractions from last night...I decided to go to bed and see if I could sleep through them. I could. I didn't sleep as good as I have been and I'm up for good now (4 am) but they're all gone. Leading me to believe I might be pretty safe today. I bet if I kept on my feet all day it would make this all go faster...but I'm doing no heroic measures to get her out until 5 pm tomorrow evening when the kids are here!!!

Since this just might be my last weekend EVER with NO KIDS...I'm going to boogie clean (since I went back to work DH has been cleaning from top to bottom on Wed, his days off, so the house isn't bad at all) maybe go pick out an outfit for Jessica...go to the Italian market by our house to get ingredients for banana cream pie for DH (I tried to surprise him last week and BOY did that pie suck...forgetting to cook it before chilling it makes for a crappy pie....preggo brain) and I contemplated (and am still) going to the shooting range to fire off some rounds but BOY would I get weird stares...which is kind of cool.

I just don't want her to think "HOLY CRAP SHE SAID COME OUT AND NOW SHE HAS A GUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Tonight is supposed to be casino night and fair night with DH and his buddies...but he already mentioned skipping the fair...and I'm a little scared about the casino...we were just going to go alone there but it is all the way in downtown Detroit...and I know my intention to stay up late might not work LOL!!! If I am not having contractions though, I better go while the getting is good. Next time we have the chance we'll have to pay a babysitter...and sometimes it's just easier to stay home and I can see myself falling into that rut. So I want to go out with a bang. Hey, maybe I'll hit big on the one cent slots =)

As long as I don't have contractions, work is the best place for me to be...I seriously don't think about anything but teaching when I'm there. And I did luck out on my class this year...they're a blast and I'm going to miss them already terribly when I am on leave! Problem is...I get in the car and sit down...and I'm BEYOND exhausted!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's 5:15 am and I want pizza. Anyone with me???

Glad to see your classes have been so good! My kids have been begging my sub for more baby pics.

No pizza craving over here. Apparently Betsy doesn't like onions. (Pout, pout)

We are SOOOOOOOOOOOO excited for Glee on Tuesday!!! I hope you're able to watch it!

I'm with you. Still working. I go Monday all day, but the sub will be teaching and I will be doing any last minute things (like testing and prepping for the next 12 wks for her) and then Tuesday I'll go in lightly to do last minute things and stay through to Back to School Night until 8:30/9. Then I have my Csection the next morning at 8 am I can't imagine leaving my sub out to dry on Back to School Night so I'm sticking it all the way out unfortunately. Only 2 more days and one night though and I'm out for awhile!!!!!!!

Jeanine, you are a SAINT! I'd miss Back to School night if I were you. If I was having contractions like I did last night...even though they weren't regular...I'd have skipped. It's hard to work all daqy and keep going all night!!!

Amy, I will watch Glee unless she is falling out. I can't remember what time it's on (Eastern) but if it's 8, my kids are to stay in their rooms or watch Keith play Madden (and no one is to talk to me whatsoever) and if it's 9...they are going to bed early LOL! Only Jessica can mess it up for me. And we watched last season's finale today, she danced throughout the musical numbers...she might like it too much and want to see it, too.

Unless I go into labor, I am scheduled to watch the 21 month old on Monday, Thursday and Friday next week. He'll be here for 11.5-12 hours each of those days.

I was at work until the very last day, and just a little over 1wk after Mia was born, I was back to work!! I must say, there is something so unnatural about going to work when your baby is only 1wk old.......good thing is, Im only going in 3 days a week, but those three days are h e ll!! Hang in there Angela, so far Jess has listened to her mama about when to come and when not too!!

Lori, what do you do again?

Alethia, that's wild...I can't believe you are back already! What do you do, too?
I'm pretty sure when I go back I won't be able to pump two days a week...so I probably can't breastfeed very long. But I've been working with kids now for two weeks and I have needed it, after being off all summer.

still pregnant here with no induction in sight!! I do kind of wish I'd been working all along, I probably wouldn't have gained so much weight. But it's been a relaxing summer!

I love pizza, and now that you mention it, could really go for some!! I'm not schedualed for induction or anything yet, my dr said he will let me go to the middle of Oct to avoid that.. I keep hoping that things will happen sooner especially after this week.. just when the contractions start and i get excited, they go away... go figure!! i'll take some of that pie too!! LOL

Im not preggo anymore, but I own my own business so I worked right up until the day I went into labor, had her on Tuesday afternoon and was back at work (with her in tow) on Friday...

I'm STILL working but it's from home, and my travels and consulting biz have been put on maternity leave, but my faculty work is still in full force (4 classes, 2 universities, on-line so get to work from home). This is why I am a bit exhausted and kind of out of it here til I get completely caught up and even ahead a bit... Jeesh!

I had 5 days off, from Sept. 1-6 and started back on the 7th

FX for you to have your little Jessica Tuesday MORNING, so you can watch glee in peace (sort of, nurses coming...) and get to enjoy your casino night! It sounds like fun!

I'm doing the contractions and getting excited...then stopping, too. Ah well, it's closer than I was all last week, when I felt PERFECT!!! So it's got to be close for both of us, Naomi!!!

Oh if I have Jessica on Tues, I'm locking the hospital room door on Tues night for an hour...NO TAKING BLOOD/PICTURES/VISITORS WHILE GLEE IS ON! I might even try and get Keith to go home with the other kids for awhile LOL...

I can't imagine working with a newborn. I guess if you have your own hours it's a different story though. Both of my kids slept through the night before I went back to work so it was do-able. I pray that Jessica does the same...or I'll be VERY TIRED.

I own a mortgage company, so with rates being at their lowest again, I cannot be away from the office!! But I hate it, absolutely hate having to leave Mia.......I took her to work with me on Friday, but it still sucked, I just want to stay home and snuggle with her all day......
