Losing It

I have decided that pregnancy needs to be about three weeks shorter. Last night I had a meltdown - all spurred on by an empty pudding cup. Yes friends - a pudding cup. Never mind that the sink was full of dishes, crumbs were on the floor, toys were everywhere, the beds were unmade and my laundry basket was overflowing. One look at that empty pudding cup left on the kitchen table... and I spent the next hour in a mad scrubbing spree with tears running down my face. My poor, sweet, innocent husband... what a guy to pitch in and pretend that he wasn't alarmed at my impending insanity. On a sidenote - I am being induced (if Caleb will wait until then) on the 20th! Seven days early! Hallelujiah!!!

The 20!!! that is so exciting!! I hate the end of pregnancy too! I think the last couple of weeks are longer then the rest of the 9 months! Good Luck!

Loved your past few posts. I can't wait for Caleb to come either. It will be fun to see what a Benson BOY looks like.
p.s I think God/mother nature knew that expectant mothers needed to get a good "nesting" bug before giving birth. Because once the baby is born the chores just go by the way side. Who wants to clean up a house when there are babies & kids to love anyway?

I hate the end too. It just seems so long. How nice to have a date where you know it will be over for sure.

Oh sorry! I hate days like that. And man when your hormones are out of wack it can be kinda scary huh? Hang in there, he will be there soon!

You poor thing! I know it seems out of control at the end, but you are not alone. I see a lot of women in the same situation as you. You will be fine. At least you have a doctor who took pity on you and gave you an end date...and early. That's is awesome. We miss you! Get an epidural if you want one. You don't get bonus points for being in pain! Good luck.
