Irritable, irritable, irritable…

You should be glad that you are not married to me today. (Unfortunately, Tim cannot count himself among this group.) I am really hard to deal with. I don’t know if it’s the weather (which is cloudy and humid as all get out), my impatience at the baby not being here yet or just a general feeling of bitchiness that permeates my being, but something is amiss. Maybe it was that I just had to clean up dog pee off of the rug and Tim forgot to call me back when he said he would. That probably has something to do with it.

Anyhoo, just wanted to do a quick post so you know that nothing happened last night, except a smidge of bleeding. I wonder exactly how dilated one can get before labor begins officially. My new theory is that I’m just going to have four weeks of easy labor and on August 6, the baby will just pop out while I’m watching “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” or something. That would be interesting, and much cheaper than delivering at the hospital!

Kim asked a really good question the other day: Will I continue to update the blog during labor and/or after delivery? Well, I’ll try to get Tim to update the blog when he runs home to take a shower or something after the baby’s here and I’m still in the hospital. After I’m home, I definitely plan to keep updating the blog about all the tiny minutiae of the little guy’s life. You can look forward to post after post on the indelicacies of breastfeeding, the many messy diaper changes and how amazing it is to have a little being who depends solely on you.

So have a great weekend, everybody. One of my clients thinks “this is the weekend.” Yeah, right.
