So Ready

My official due date is August 13th but man am I ready or what! I've been trying to do alot of walking as I feel more braxton hicks and that makes me think I'm progressing (which I have no idea if I am or not)

Anyways, I'm walking or more accurately waddling across a parking lot that seems never ending to get to my car today. I have Sweet Pea holding my one hand and my hand full of bags and my purse in the other. I see these 2 young men dressed in suits going from car to car. Great, just what I need to be sold something. I was feeling pretty brave and intolerate thanks to my level of discomfort and sweat pouring down my face. The 2 gentlemen say excuse me mam...I respond with a, I don't care what your selling or advertising I'm not interested. I noticed their name tags say something about Church of Jesus Christ..really not interested. One of the guys asks me "what can I do to help you?"

Don't even go there. 1st - I've heard that line before and I know what your trying to do and second do you really want to ask a 9 month pregnant lady that question?....GET THIS BABY OUT OF ME!!!

You make me laugh! I hope this baby comes soon for you!

Well, actually if you told them what you really wanted, it might scare them away, so that's a good thing... I don't imagine the Mormon men would react too well to a woman screaming "I want you to get this darn baby out of me!" :)

I like to call Morman missionaries "Mr. Moroni and Mr. Joseph Smythe" just for kicks and giggles . . .

Babies are a lot of work. :)

Hilary- thank you, so do I :)

Jeni- I probably should have said that just to see the look on their face or what they could possibly say to such a request

Tpluckyt- They also use to make weekly rounds in our neighbor and ring our doorbell right during nap time. thanks Mr. Joseph Smythe

Scoey-d: I need to remember this. Andy and I are also knowing that we will be sleep deprived for awhile when the baby comes. If only for less discomfort

At this point I will do anything...well almost. I am stretching, walking twice a day. Only satisfaction is not seeing the scale move up anymore :O
