Wednesday-I had the flu. Yes the flu. At first I thought that diarrhea was a good sign. Think again. I vomited my guts out. That's okay though. I don't need the extra food. I ended up having German class, but it was good because afterward I felt like I had learned a lot even though I felt pretty crummy. I thought for sure I was going to go in labor all day. It was a very long day after having contractions every 3-5 minutes for over 12 hours. Sucky.
Thurday-Turkey day was great. I felt pretty good, had two Thanksgiving suppers, and had some good loving. On the down side, my pelvis clicks even when we make love! It totally killed the mood. lol
I also went to K-mart for their Thanksgiving sale and bought my son some matchbox cars 50 % off (he loved them) and a new digital camera for the big day. Yeah!!!
Friday-Today was good. I'm back at work, however I was able to get some nursing homework done inbetween insurance calls. I look forward to going home and seeing my son and husband.
Three more weeks....Three more weeks.....
Hey - at least you got over the flu in time for some turkey! Glad you are feeling better.
ohhh....the flu is terrible but at least you got some turkey!

That sucks about the flu!
(((ELVs))) your way!
Saturday- Work went fine. I was able to get a little homework in here and there. Dirk, my son, was so sweet when I came home from work. What a doll baby!
I also decided with much contemplation that I was going to try a little castor oil. So, I drank two heaping tablespoons of it at 10:30 PM. Nothing happened really except irregular contractions. I watched Akeela and the Bee while I was waiting for the castor oil to kick in, however I didn't even go number 2!!!! That is the nastiest tasting stuff ever, though! lol
Sunday- Today was good. It's been busy at work. There are lots of sick people coming in, and the weather here is starting to get bad. It's good to know that I might not have too much longer left of work. I work with some great people so hopefully next weekend will go by like a breeze. Putting in full-time hours into three days is just a long time when you can barely do things like put on your own socks anymore!
I am so glad the castor oil didn't make you crampy and running to the bathroom!!! Though it sounds like the break from work might have been welcome!
Goodness what a long day at work. I don't know how your still doing that! Is your DS getting excited about the baby? Hope you don't have to work all the way to 40 weeks, come on out baby mommy needs a break!
My husband is doing very well with the idea that the baby is coming. It isn't talked about too much at my house, though. I think that my husband is worried about his job.
Work isn't too bad. I have to go through the same routine over and over again, though, when I go into a patient's room. They always ask a billion questions about my stomach. I keep getting asked if I've taken a pregnancy test yet. That one is getting old. I'm hoping that all the physical activity will keep me in good physical condition for labor. I just wish I had extra time to get my house ready.
Monday-Today was good. I spent most of the morning cleaning the house with my son. German class was good. We learned lots of grammar. Our test got moved to next Monday instead of this Wednesday. I'm very worried about when I will go into labor. We have a group presentation for nursing school next Tuesday that I really can't miss. I can have the baby any time before next Monday or after Tuesday night to avoid that mess. If I miss a German class, I can always make up the test. Nursing school is different.
No real complaints about today. I think that the castor oil finally kicked in a bit. Lots of BM's today, all formed though (TMI). My back feels great, and my face hasn't been very puffy. I'm skipping my doctor's appointment tomorrow because I have a work meeting that was rescheduled for the same time so I will have to wait until next week to hear any more baby news on the crotch front. My doctor doesn't check down there anyway at this point from what I remember from when I was pregnant with Dirk.
