Checking in

Yup.... still pregnant......

Had my check up this morning with my mid-wife and I'm still measuring a week ahead in how big Carter is. I'm still 1.5 dilated, but I'm not as effaced. I didn't even know the amount of "effaced" could change, but evidently it has a lot to do with how strong my contractions have been, and they haven't been as strong this week, so my cervix isn't as thin. But, my mid-wife says that this doesn't predict anything, and it still means I could go into labor tonight, or go to my due date or past (God forbid!).

This past weekend was crazy. My mother-in-law, her sister (Phillip's aunt), and their mother (Phillip's Nana) came to visit us for the weekend. It was touch b/c they last time his mom was there was when Phillip's dad passed away. Lots of reminders for us all, and sadness. But, it was a very nice visit. We had dinner Friday night at the Jarrett House (you all know how much I love this place!!!) and I had the most akward pregnancy moment ever. It was so weird, and random, you couldn't even think/imagine this one up!!! I'm standing in line to pay for dinner and this RANDOM lady (let me stress the fact that I DO NOT KNOW THIS LADY AT ALL!!!) taps me on the shoulder. I turn around and she and another lady are standing. This is what goes down:
Crazy lady- "Excuse me, can me and my daughter rub your belly?"
Me- "Whhhhaaaaaa!?"
Crazy lady- "Yeah, my daughter is 32 years old and I have yet to get a grand baby out of her!"
Me- (smiling awkwardly and feeling bad for the daughter) "Oh, I'm so sorry!"
Crazy lady- "I think if we rub your belly we might have some luck and I can have a grandbaby that's not a monkey"
Me- (about to run and hide with a very confused and puzzled luck on my face)..... "Uh....... are you on crack?" (Nope, didn't say it, just thought it!)
Crazy lady- "Yeah, my son had me a grandbaby, now I want one from her! I'm tired of considering a monkey to be my grandbaby!"
Me- ...still speechless.... (....seriously, what do you think I was thinking??? )
Monkey lady- "Yeah, my husband and I are enjoying life and consider our monkey to be our child. Obviously momma doesn't like it so much."
So, she wasn't kidding!!! She actually had a monkey!!! She whips out her phone and starts showing Phillip and I 30-some pictures of her monkey (who is adorable and has a diaper!!) and tells us how they are from Georgia and they don't want kids and are perfectly happy with their darling little monkey. It's seriously like "Marcell" from Friends and it's really kinda odd, but so cute!........... RANDOM AND CRAZY RIGHT!!!~ I told you, you can't make this stuff up!!
