Dr' appt this am. There is no reason why I should not be going into "real" labor soon (today, tonight, tomorrow....) So to be safe we are keeping the kids at grandmas tonight and having to do all those "old wifes" tales for bringing on labor. I plan on taking yet another walk at yet another mall this afternoon-bah.

Today so far I had Taco Bell with much much FIRE hot sauce. All it got me was heartburn. I have lost 4 lbs since Tuesday (which they are estatic about) and I have had those membranes stripped 3x and I now have no MP. So if he decides to make an appearance, you will know..

No Baby yet. Feeling crappy, the girls are both teething and have the croup or some other crappy upper RI. Malinda has one new tooth on the bottom and Mya is getting her molars. They keep waking up and crying all night. I dont sleep much, which sucks.....I am not working which means after I dropped them at school today I went home and slept till about 20 min ago. Nice.

Planning on leaving as soon as I can today....I am tired. Contractions all last night which kept waking me up. Strangly I am not getting up to pee as much as "they" say you do. My guess is after the twins (up every 15 min) my body has no problem with the extra pee?

Last night was a treat for us as Dale was home on a Tuesday (no more MW) so Malinda had fun having her bath (which I usually can't do on my own) and playing with Dad. She ate a really large dinner.

Once again I'm on a rampage about Juice at daycare (they keep giving her juice 2x a day which = really messy poops) and about the handicapped space.

So for the past 2-3 weeks (since it got really cold) parents are just parking in the ONE handicapped space at daycare to "run in real quick" and pick up the kids. Do they have stickers or passes, oh hell no. Its totally making me insane. Now would I like to be able to park RIGHT next to the door so I can hussle the kids in and out, yes, yes I would. But if my sad sack, pregnant ass can park way down the row and pick up my kids so can your fat ass. Every time I see someone park there I make the center director (who really hates people who do this as much as I do) go out and yell at the parents. I am about THIS close to calling the cops on this one lady who parks there for like 30 min while she chats with her friend that works there. I had to wait 10 min for a parking spot yesterday and this bitch pulls in, sees me waiting so she parks in the handicapped spot. I overheard Gina yelling at her and she said "whats the big deal, I was in and out in 5 min?" I am tempted to ask my dr for a parking sticker and park my car right behind her to proove a point. "This is the big deal you inconciderate bitch, nice values you are teaching your kids, its OK to break the law if you do it really quick.

Tonight plan on bathing Mya and watching "King Arthur" from netflicks (finished Monk season 1 disc 4 last night and scrapbooked our playdate with the girls page)

Oh the doctor thinks the kid weighs around 8lbs!! I have gained over 6 lbs since last week! Ouch! I guess the week before last I was down 3 lbs, so I guess my net gain is 3 lbs (0r whatever) 2 weeks ago the dr. estimated the baby would be around 6lbs 12 oz...but if i get any bigger this one is really going to hurt coming out (FYI, a 5lber and a 4 lber dont feel like nothing)

Went to the doctor yesterday, I guess I'm almost 3 cm dialated or something. I actually saw my doctor (i guess my nurse lady was overbooked and my doctor wanted to see me) she stripped my membranes and was all giddy "wouldnt it be great if you could deliver today or tomorrow, because I'm on call!" I was speechless as last week she was all "we can't possibly do anything to speed this up for you."

Then she sd, well if you don't deliver by the 27th (my next appt) lets talk about inducing you!! What-the-hell???

The stripping my membranes didnt really do anything for me, I was slightly crampy last night but no biggie....Watched ELF with Dale (it was pretty funny) and one ep of Monk on DVD.

The girls were insane when I got home, they were running around the upstairs screaming and eating cookies. It was a bit overwhelming!

My last day at work is tomorrow and I seriously can not wait, I'm sick of walking down here every day.

So Dale's boss was giving him suggestions for what he can do to help me have the baby when we want to (vs nature-the bitch). Steve (his boss) suggested Dale get really drunk to the point where he can't drive. Then I will go into labor. Apparantly Steve did this when his last child was born and was too drive to drunk his wife to the hospital. Thanks to Steve for the "dee's nuts" Tee shirt and the Chappelle Show Season 1 DVD.

Stayed home from work yesterday as I felt like crud. Watched the Entire LOTR:ROTK documentary dvd footage-brain exploded. Also managed to get to the post office and post my out of country packages. Tonight is our Xmas Party, dinner doesnt start till 8pm!? arg.

Dale gave me his cold. Now instead of bloody noses in the morning from being too dry, I'm all full of snot-lovely.

Mya and Malinda now like to dance by spinning in circles. Very nice. Malinda had breakfast for dinner last night and seemed to enjoy that quite a bit, She threw up on me before bed so that was a nice capper to my evening!

Watched "The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement" last night and also most of Disc 1 of "LOTR: Return of The King: Special Edition." I think I have like 500 more hours of that movie to go.

My dr sucks. There is no "medical reason" to induce labor. There is also no medical reason for elective cosmetic surgery, male circumsisions, scheduled c-sections, or the other million elective proceedures we humans allow dr's to do to us annually. God forbid I should pick and choose my own due date to best suit my families needs. Fuck everyone. Poop on your head.

We had the girls over on Saturday to play (that is the pictorial below) Thanks for the new piano Keira! The girls went to grandmas yesterday for a few hours while Dale and I did laundry, cleaned upstairs, I dusted and got things ready for our Baumer Xmas this weekend! Girls went to bed early Sunday as they were wiped out. I scrapbooked a few pages and watched football then went to bed. :) Dr's appt today where I get to try and convince her to induce labor on the 21st.
