Day 2

Day 2 of maternity leave. Went to the OBGYN yesterday. Our baby is head down facing the right way and really low which is good. My sister in law Lisa lost her mucas plug yesterday. She is due on the 19th, but hubbs predicted today the day and at 8 a.m. I got a phone call she was having some pretty regular contractions. If the hubbs is correct that will be the second time he has called a birth day. Their first daughter, our niece, he predicted when she would be born as well and she was!

At the gas station the other day a young guy approached me saying that he and his girlfriend were taking a poll as to how far a long they thought I was. Apparently he thought I was 4 months a long and his girlfriend guessed 6 or 7 months (they had recently had a baby themselves). I was surprised by their rediculous guesses and laughed at their shocked facial expressions when I told them 9 months! I guess everyone shows differently.

I headed to Target on Saturday and was amazed at how busy it was. It was probably the busiest I had ever seen it, more than Christmas time. By looking at the mobs of shoppers, you would never guess our country is going through difficult financial times. Maybe they were just stocking up on Halloween candy.

Yay for cute bellies!!

And I think people are starting shopping now because otherwise they cannot afford to go Christmas shopping. I know that's what I'm doing.
