Did I forget to blog?

In all the, ahem, excitement around here, I must have forgotten to blog today...

Well. The only news is that there's no news. Tomorrow I go in for my first 'post-date' checkup. It's a real drag, but the best way to make sure that everything continues to be OK. First it's half an hour on the monitor (have I mentioned how much I hate the fetal monitor?) and then an ultrasound (mostly to check the placenta, I believe). After that, I probably get to wait for whatever doctor happens to be around so that he can send me home and tell me to come back sometime next week. Sounds fun, huh?

I've got a great idea for tomorrow, I just need a little time to put it together :-)

BTW, anyone who makes fun of women who go past their due date should be warned: In your next life (or perhaps even several lives), you will be a female elephant.

Wow. That's a long gestation on elephants. I wonder if they get morning sickness. And how long it lasts.

I'm sorry they stick you on a monitor no matter how much or how little is going on with you. I'm sure it's all for the best, but it must seem like much ado about nothing.

Hang in there and let us know if we can do anything for you.

And give Hadas our congrats!

Well, elephant - no offense! - happy due date for tomorrow! It seems pretty exciting you're up to that date, even though who knows when everything will actually happen.
