1. Most nights I take a prenatal vitamin. I keep them by my bed. I open the bottle of water, open the vitamins, dump one in my hand, take it with water, and go to bed. The other night I fell asleep on the couch. I was obviously half asleep when I finally moved into my bedroom. Keeping to my normal routine, I opened the bottle of water... and dumped it in my hand. Oops. To save you some trouble, I'd advise against dumping a bottle of water into your hand.
2. I had pop tarts, an apple, ice cream, and cookies for dinner last night. Spread out over like 5 hours, of course. You know, since that somehow makes it okay. Don't tell anyone.
3. We start childbirth classes this week. I'm super excited! This may be a strange comparison, but I'm excited for the birth as if it's a race I signed up for. Bring it on, baby. Bring...it...on. (But not for another 2 1/2 months, please.)
4. Christian has some issues with blood and guts. We're not exactly sure how the whole birth process will go for him. I wish him luck. My friend Madika suggested I test him with the fake body parts and fake blood they use for some of the the medical students' lessons. You know, come around the corner screaming "Christian! I cut my arm and it's about to fall off!" and see if he passes out from the blood or springs into action. I think he would hate me forever. We'll scratch that idea.
