38 weeks
Everything you have ever heard about how unpleasant it is to be pregnant when it is hot outside is true. Heat has always made me cranky, so you can imagine what it does to me in my current condition. Yesterday when the air conditioning seemed like it was barely denting the heat wave I made an inappropriate remark about tearing my clothes off to my gamer friends. Luckily for me I have smart, understanding friends. I also have a husband who deserves danger pay for living with me during a heat wave. I'll never know how my mother survived an entire summer of being pregnant in NYC with no air conditioning.

Things are less hot today, which is good. Yesterday when I was delivering the birth plan to the OB, the one that says ten different ways how we don't want any interventions, was also on the verge of begging to be induced right then. Warren had to warn me that I wasn't exactly sending a consistent message. I'm less desperate now, but I still would probably jump for joy if my water broke in the next five minutes. Sadly, I suspect that it will be July before we see this baby, what with my complete lack of anything even resembling a contraction.

I am officially huge. My belly button is gone. It's a good thing I have that laproscopy scar to remind me of where it should be.

It's hot, but not too humid here. The heat is getting to me and none of my shoes fit! And I know I have (probably) at least FIVE more weeks, maybe SEVEN! My husband is somewhat worried about how hot and sweaty I get even inside. My belly button sticks out a bit still, so I at least know where it is.

Hang in there! I'm sure you'll go into labor when you feel like you really can't take it anymore... I figure it'll be the most inconvenient time for me, too. ;)
