What makes you feel better no matter what? It seems like today I've tried everything but hormones are winning the battle. And I'm sleeping TONS! I slept for 11 hours, didn't even wake up to pee. Yikes!

Oooo, I could totally go for some hot fudge brownies... And some Tazo Passion Tea. Underwear shopping would usually have me feeling better except no underwear seems to fit properly right now (gee I wonder why lol) so it would probably just end up being really depressing.

I'm sorry I'm so whiney lately everyone, I keep telling myself it's just hormones, but sometimes I gotta let it all out and this is the only place where I know I won't hear, well then why don't you just get induced. So sorry, and thanks for putting up with me!

Aww honey! Of course we understand! And i'm so tickled you HAVE a place to go! I wonder how many women could have had the strength to fight off induction if they only had a group of supportive women? The good news is this flood of hormones and wierdness you are feeling DOES probably mean that labor isn't too far off.

I e-mailed my midwife and she called and I cried and then she came over and took me out for smoothies and then massaged my feet with lavendar oil. It worked wonders. I slept most of the next day as well and went into labor that night.

I always felt better after a good cry over an ice cold tiramisu

Or - jamocha milk shake from Arbys lol.

I justified it by saying I was topping off my protein for the day lol.



It was SOOOOOOOO tough at the end.

Another thing - pedicures. I was getting them 2 & 3 times a week at the end. And - I was goign for a massage about once a week lol. It was the most expensive pregnancy EVER lol.
