stick a fork in me, please

I am So done being pregnant. Two weeks to go and I feel like I am going to explode. So much pressure on my organs. Constant heart burn. Ugh! I guess this is how nature prepares you for the goriness of birth- by making you feel so terrible you don't care how the baby comes out as long as it's out!

That said, we managed to get through 90 percent of the to-do list. Thank goodness. Most of the stuff around the house is finished. We have all of our bathrooms working, we have all the light fixtures working and/or converted to ceiling fans. The cars are all in working order, oils changed, and all repairs big and small are finished (fingers crossed for nothing else to go wrong...). The firewood is chopped and stacked.

My reward for all the last few weeks of heartache and hard work-- I'm getting a prenatal massage tomorrow. Oh, I hope it's great. Of course, any sort of relaxation and quiet time would feel nice at this point.

On another note, I decided to bump up our biweekly automatic savings transfer by $50, to $300 per paycheck. It may not sound like a lot, but it would mean an extra $100 a month, which can really add up. I'm hoping we won't miss the extra $25 a week.

It also dawned on me today that our college savings will have to go up dramatically once the new baby arrives. we put about $5,000 a year away for Bean, and we'll have to do the same for Bean Two. Not sure how we will come up with the extra money, since the recession has basically killed my income, but we'll figure it out somehow.

    Denise - you are very fortunate to have had the nesting bug. We get so much done. I hope you've packed your hospital kit. I was 6 weeks early with the first and 4 weeks early with the second. Try putting both your hands and arms above your head. It will expand your lungs so you can take a deeeeeeep breath. Good luck and enjoy the journey. You are indeed fortunate!

    @baselle - you're a riot!

    So, then Denise, you need to be basting yourself in stretch mark creme? Here's hoping you & Lil Sid an imminent meeting!

    Hurry Lil Sid!! HURRY!!!

    I so agree with the first paragragh! Good luck and enjoy. I sometimes wish I could relive those years, but not the birth part! Back in my day it was all about "natural childbirth" here in California. No drugs even with my second birth which was breech!!!AAAHH!

    You're almost there! Take care!

    Trust me, I am up to my elbows in moisturizer. I didn't get stretch marks the first time, I sure as hell aren't going to get them this time.

    Tonight was me and hubby's last baby-free date night for what I suspect is a really long time. We had sushi and went bowling. It was lovely!

    Oh that is great that you guys got to go out baby-free for the night. Sounds like a good time.
