STILL Pregnant!! So Heres a MPM

I am sure, you are all curious as to whether we have had our new little one. Well, NOT YET!! I am still waiting, and not all that patiently either I might add. Hubby has been home most of the time, which has been such a blessing. He is still working on the base, but his ship is gone. MIL is here as well. The boys are loving all the attention they are getting. Although all the new toys and books might have something to do with that....
We thought it might happen yesterday at some time. Simply because it was a full moon last night. Which apparently has some effect on pregnant women close to their due dates. The funny thing is that when my MIL brought it up, I went and looked it up BOTH my boys were due on a full moon! But, NOOOOO, apparently this baby is quite happy right where he/she is! So, tomorrow I am going in at 6am to be induced. There will be plenty of news and pics probably later this week!
I decided to put together a VERY loose, child friendly, and easy for MIL to make.

Monday: Chicken Tacos with tomato and avocado slices
Tuesday: Pizza Bake
Wednesday: Leftovers
Thursday: Quesadillas
Friday: Mac and Cheese and apple sauce
Saturday: order a pizza

After the baby is born, I will have to stay in the hospital for 3 days. I am thinking I will probably be back home either Friday afternoon or Saturday morning. I will keep ya'll (MIL is from Texas, I think its rubbing off) posted!

I will say the boys are excited for the new baby to be born, Train Junkie keeps asking if he can tell the baby to come out! I have been baking like crazy too. I found the Tiramisu recipe at The Pioneer Woman Cooks, and made that on Saturday. YUMMY!! Oh my word, super easy, and so good! I left out the Marsala for pregnant reasons, I wasn't sure the alcohol would cook out. And while I have read plenty of articles about having a glass of wine here at the end to relax me and maybe spark labor, I am just not THAT liberal!

In order to keep you all occupied (since you are just hanging by a thread to hear what we have and all!) I have 2 questions for you!!
1. If you have children, were any of them born during a full moon? (you can google moon phases and if you have a child born in 2000 - now, you can look it up)

And my second question is a little odd, I have found the BEST toothpaste in the world! Where did that come from you ask? Just my own random ramblings, really. Anyway when I was in L.A. my friend had a tube of Aquafresh Extreme Clean. I tried it, and will NEVER use anything else again! Talk about fresh and minty deliciousness!
2. What type of toothpaste do you use?? Do you have a preference or is it whatever is on sale?

I think an easy menu is in store for this week.

I use Colgate Total...always! I don't seem to care which flavor it is though.

Neither of my boys were born on a full moon (almost the opposite after googling moon phases...LOL). Ds#1 ws Oct. 9, 2002 and ds#2 was Feb. 26, 2006. However, I was scheduled to be induced with ds#2 on Feb. 26 (at 39 weeks). My dad flew in from TX on the 25th and we were busy doing some last minute grocery shopping after picking him up at the airport. When we got home, I was very tired. I went to the bathroom and thought my water might have broke. I waited a while to see if it really had. I was thinking it had and was getting ready to call the doc to tell them...then there was a bigger gush and I was sure. little one was born 3 hours before my induction was to begin!! Maybe tonight is the night!!

Aw. You had a week long lull in your posting and I thought for sure you had the baby! Maybe you'll go into labor tonight and skip being induced in the morning! Whatever happens, I will be praying for you and your new baby! You're doing great, Mama!

Ack, I don't stop by on Monday, and find out that you were due to go in on Tuesday at 6 AM. You must have a baby by now, how wonderful! Can't wait for an update!!! So glad your hubby is not on the ship and your MIL is there too. You guys all take care of each other and let us know when you can :)
