Inconveniently Clumsy

I'm two days from my due date so of course I'm peeing constantly and my belly is huge. Last night these two things combined in such a way that I crushed my toe with the bathroom door and fell hard onto the doorknob. My belly button was dead center of the hit. When I mentioned that at my regular OB appt this morning she sent me upstairs to L&D to be monitored just to be sure all was OK. She said it would take about 20 minutes.

It took 20 minutes just to get set up. I had my 23 month old with me and while she was somewhat delighted to watch TV the remote was broken resulting in me trying to talk her into liking some odd things as they crossed the screen. The nurse also brought me ice and juice. It was supposed to get the smaller baby moving but instead it made the bigger one hold still. The funny part was the baby's responses to my parenting of M. He liked it when I fussed at her and he liked it when I pointed out things to her. I think he'll do fine around here.
