Comments: We went out for spicy wings last night to try and get things going. 😉 The ones I had were a little hotter than my usual comfort zone, but not by a lot. If I’m still pregnant next Monday, we’ll go back for 50-cent wing night and I’ll try pineapple habanero (mmmm). They might have helped a little though, as I woke up to find she has dropped, or at least started to. The lump that was under my ribs is now at mid-belly. My pelvic floor has been killing me for three days now. Let’s go baby! 🙂 We went to an LLL meeting for expectant parents on Monday night and it was great, and I went to another one this morning about the benefits of breastfeeding. LOTS of babies there today, including 12-week-old twin girls, and I got to hold one! The next time I go to a meeting, I’ll have my own baby. Whoa.
