Waiting

No baby yet.

Ain't nuthin' going on here.

Well, actually, I'm 2 cm dilated. My doctor and doula both said to get walking. So for the past three days, I have been walking and doing not much else except ... waiting. That's about all I have energy for.

I thought yesterday was my due date, but it's actually tomorrow. I really got that one mixed up. I know the baby will come when s/he comes, but I really felt the big day would be a couple weeks ago.

So I feel I'm in a holding pattern. I'm trying to do something fun with Fly every day. Writing thank-you notes. Tying up loose ends. Staring at my to-go bag. Discovering if I scratch my belly in just the right place, it seems to tickle the baby.

Just waiting.

It will happen soon!! Maybe tonight.

I don't know WHY babies like to come at night, but it sure seems they do.

hang in there. it gets hard to wait at the end. Just think, though, that the bigger the baby is the longer the baby will sleep at night :) At least that's what I told myself when I was waiting...

Come on, baby! Don't you know how much your mama wants to meet you?
Sending you tons of "easy, breezy labor vibes."

Good luck and praying for a safe delivery!

I heard that doing "you-know-what" can send you right into labor. I wouldnt know because the last thing in the world I wanted to do was THAT!!!!

I swear these are the worst moments of pregnancy! With a baby that came a week late (2 weeks by my calculation), I know all about it - even crying when the midwife told me nothing was happening yet...

Take a long walk, eat a spicy dinner and then, you know, do it. Doing it is supposed to help.
