Random things on my mind Monday morning.

Undies:  if this makes you uncomfortable, then please skip this section :)  Since I've read and heard from friends that the region down south might continue to 'leak' post labor and maxi pads are a necessity, I decided that I need to kiss my cute Victoria's Secret tangas good-bye for a few days (or weeks depending).  Let me back up a bit...yes, I wrote maxi pads.  It's been eons since I've even looked a package of those unsanitary things.  Let alone purchased them.  Gross.  To say the least w/out getting too personal, this momma-to-be hasn't owned a pair of bottom covering undies since...oh let's say 1998 {8th grade ish}.  I had eery intention of going back to good ol' Vickey's for some bikinis.  However, the money saving part of me said that was stupid.  I hope to never wear these undies again, so why spend $25 on five pairs?  I crossed the undies buying line and bought Hanes Her Way.  I did and I can admit that (publicly on my blog nonetheless!).  I got 6 pairs for $6.49...the budget Gods love me :)  Now I won't feel guilty trashing the suckers after their short lived life!

Hospital bag is packed.  Car seat is in the car.  And we know Michael's days off for March.  Baby B and I had yet another talk.  He/She can make the grand entrance into this world March 1st or 2nd, the 9th, 10th, 11th, 17th, 18th, or 19th.  Those are his official days off.  Since he does not have a 'line' yet (a set schedule of actual flights) his days on may very well be spent at home (like yesterday) or at the airport sitting around waiting.  I guess I feel 'better.'  That leaves us plenty of good times for the baby to come.  However, we all know that won't happen...that'd be too easy.  So we still just hope and pray that he's in Chicago when those contractions start!  

The outlook on this week looks mellow (again).  Just as it should be.  A day and a half with hubsy.  I meet with a new doc in the same practice on Thursday.  I'm excited to meet another doctor that could be delivering us!  Maybe I will do some baking.  Although I have nothing in mind.  We've planned out a general ideas for dinner each night- yum!  As you can see, not much has changed, I still focus on food.  I am reading 'Firefly Lane' by Kristin Hannah and can't seem to put it down.  Usually thick, therefore long, books tend to scare me away b/c I get ADD before I can finish the darn thing.  Not this one.  It's been a great to pass the time waiting for baby :)  Belly update tomorrow!


  1. Heather,
    I love reading you blog posts, and can't wait to find out what baby B is, or the baby's name!

    I LOVED Firefly Lane, however just a warning. I bawled (not pregnant or hormonal) thru the last 50 pages....

  2. I did the SAME thing heath.... for the first time since i was 8 i ROCKED the hanes her ways after i had aiden. Trust me, you will not regret getting the large and in charge granny panties, they were a GOD after giving birth! I love that you blogged about it too... so funny but so true! love it

  3. Haha. Sure you want to throw those away? You'll need them for babies 2, 3 and 4! :)

  4. Get ready for your adult sized diaper right after giving birth. So hot :)
