Argh.

Any chance extreme irritability is a sign of impending labor? Probably not, but it's the only sign I have. (Doesn't help that my husband keeps saying, "Wow, you really ARE in a bad mood..." and is completely unsympathetic. Yeah, that helps the situation. And yeah, he reads this blog.) I've not experienced any mood swings, emotional stuff, anything the whole pregnancy. Yesterday and today, a different story.

In good news, we got our Christmas tree and started decorating. And my parents brought up the fact that if I'm just getting home from the hospital when they arrive December 23, they plan to stay in a hotel so I can have at least some of the time alone to figure things out that I really think I want. Now, that makes me cry...because it's so nice. Not that I know that I'd want them to. But it's nice that they'd offer.

As a matter of fact, before I went into labor my brother in law was warning my husband that my sister was in the worst mood before she had her babies. And lo and behold, so was I! Crab-city. Maybe it's a sign for you!!!

I really hope the crabby mood is a sign. You're soooo close!

I was crabby my whole third trimester. So can't help you.
That is cool that your parents would stay at a hotel. I know we had Moana for about 4 days before my mom came and it was GREAT bonding time! Then I was so glad my mom was here because she helped with midnight feedings and laundry and cooking and all that. ;)

If extreme irritability is a sign, then I've been in labour my whole life :-)
