when you're past your due date and feeling like you might lose your mind, go.get.a pedicure. i just got back from one and after spending the past 3 days in a terrible head space, i feel like a new person. i sat down, read a magazine, turned on the massage chair, and just shut down. for a full hour i didn't think once about the fact that this baby is obviously going to be as stubborn as his mama, or the fact that i am so uncomfortable i want to cry every time i move.
seriously. if you heed no other advice i've given you, heed this. a pedicure will change your life at 40+ weeks.
