I woke up with a headache, cramps, and some intestinal issues. I don’t feel well. Had the worst night’s rest ever. The baby hasn’t dropped, which has a few people guessing that he’s coming after my due date (which is 3 weeks, 2 days away). Whatever my future holds, I need to pack a bag for the hospital, make an iPod set list for delivery (I’m thinking REM, The Postal Service, or Will Oldham), and clean our apartment for as long as my unwell body will allow. I’m exhausted. Truly beat. It feels as though every vein in my body is working overtime.
Edited to add: I have a list of things I was told I’d need while in the hospital, but a list isn’t always as good personal input. So, if you have any suggestions as to what you (or your wife) used during labor and delivery, please do not hesitate to let me know.
Edited to add: What’s the point of this set list? To calm me down? Make me happy? Induce labor? Because that totally drives who and what songs I choose.
