now we're getting somewhere . . . .

Guess who gained two pounds within 7 days - again! The victory dances I boogied over gaining 3 pounds in four weeks seem so silly now . . . and to all the schmucks who previously told me how *tiny* I seemed - BITE ME.

And for the discusto report: 75% effaced, but still at 0cm (shut tight).

As to the baby? Just like Mama, still partying like it's 1999: no shortage of hiccuping and squirming.


I'm thrilled to report that the head is . . . engaged.

Oh I crack me up . . .

Yeah! How exciting!!!

Hey did you ever finish your birth plan? I did see one of those Birth Stories on TLC where the chick made a birth plan to use NO drugs whatsoever. She signed it and gave it to the nurse.

Cut to her in excruciating pain screaming at the nurse, begging for drugs. The nurse said no. I kid you not.

My advice: Don't sign a birth plan, tell the nurse you're going to play it by ear.

I did go drug free all three times, but it hurt. A lot. I was afraid of the needle for the epidural. It's your choice and there's no honor in enduring pain.

And, best of all, the birth will be over before you know it. And you'll fall in love with your new baby!

Wow, I'd be all bitchslapping the nurse if she told me "no".
Don't worry, I giggled at the Picard reference too.
