My mother-in-law said that she ate lots of ice cream from Friendly's the night before my husband was born so on the night before his birthday (also known as week 40 day 4 of my pregnancy) we went out to Friendly's to re-enact, just in case. It didn't work, but I did get a really yummy dessert!
There was finally a day that was not too hot to use the stove to cook breakfast so I made oatmeal. This one has apple, cinnamon and dates in it.
I've been so paranoid about produce for weeks now. I'm afraid to buy too much at once and I'm terrified that I'll go into labor and then come home with a new baby and find some kind of slime-covered science experiment growing in our refrigerator. So I just chopped up every vegetable we had and ate that for lunch with hummus and some pieces of cheese. Ha ha! That was a lot though so I did share the veggies with Steve. :)
Lunch (part deux):
You probably noticed the lack of balance in that lunch I ate. My belly noticed, too, but alas it can't really accommodate all I want to eat all at once these days. So I waited a little while and then chowed down on some graham crackers with peanut butter and raisins.
Dinner & Dessert:
We went to Friendly's where I got a grilled cheese sandwich and a cup of tomato basil soup. When I was a kid I would always get a grilled cheese and dip it in barbecue sauce. I almost ordered that but then decided to try the slightly fancier version that they seem to have put on the menu. It hit the spot. For dessert I got a Reese's Pieces Sundae. It has peanut butter, hot fudge, and marshmallow in it. I devoured the whole thing, obviously, but the magic didn't work. I am still pregnant.
Ultimately, it's OK. Steve didn't really want to share his birthday with the baby and I didn't really want them to have to share either. It's nice to have your own birthday, whether you are an adult or a little kid. If we have more children someday and they have their own birthday to be king or queen on then I would always feel a little bad if this child didn't get his/her own day. Plus, I would HATE sharing my birthday so I would never wish that on Steve! Ha ha!
If you've had a baby did you do anything to try to help labor along? Give me your tips!!!
