Still Pregnant

Oh, yes. Hello forty weeks & one day! I was hoping I wouldn't reach this day without a baby in my arms, but apparently she didn't get the memo. At this point I'm not too worried about her being late since she is showing some signs of getting ready. I'm a little dilated (only about 1cm) & she's way down in my pelvis (so much so that walking is difficult because of all the pressure). I suppose that for now, it's just up to me to stay patient & rested.

Unfourtunately, we have a bit of a sickness happening over here (ick). The boy has been coughing, aching & feverish for a couple days & my throat is rather sore. Fantastic timing, right? Hopefully a few days of rest with lots of vitamin c & fluids will get us back to feeling normal. I can't imagine being sick while in labour, so please cross your fingers for us.

I am really hoping that she'll come out this weekend, but if she decides she's much too comfortable on the inside I have a midwife appointment on Tuesday where we'll be discussing my past-due options. Thankfully I'll be able to try everything natural before anyone will suggest a medical induction at a hospital. I won't even bother worrying about that yet.

Thank you to everyone for being so supportive (these past couple days, especially). You're all so sweet sending me little messages & well wishes!

Hopefully I'll be reporting the good news soon. Until then, have a stellar Saturday, everyone. It's time for me to find some tea, toast, blankets & maybe a nice book to cozy up with.

My bet was on her arriving one day late. So she's GOT to come today... okay, baby girl?!

You tell her!

Also, a twitter friend mentioned that sometimes the lunar calendar is more accurate when predicting due date -- so that would be tomorrow ^_^ Works for me!

I've been thinking of you so much lately. I hope it happens soon!

Awe, thanks Elsa! I hope it happens soon too!
Did you do anything to help kick-start your labour?

Oh Lordy, the waiting... All of my kids were a few days past due. She's just trying to make a grand entrance.

Have a lovely weekend, and may it bring you a swift labor and gorgeous baby....

Thanks hon! It's making me so impatient all this waiting, but I know that most babies come after their due date. Tis but a guess!
Ah well, tomorrow I am running all of my last minute errands, so she is welcome to come tomorrow night!
This shall be my new prediction!

I just totally pictured you laying there, feet up in the stirrups and ACHOOOOO!!!! and she flew out. If only labor were that easy, right?

Good luck!! And get some rest.

Haha, that'll be the day!
Though I did read today about a girl coughing during labour & it helped with the pushing aspect a little!

And don't forget about the vomiting! One good *ahem* spew... can decrease labor by hours.
