No Baby yet.....

I am still here....hanging on.....My due date hasn't hit yet (Feb11th) but it seems like everyone else is going early! I will probably have to be induced ten days late knowing my luck. Then they will discover that I am having a giant baby and end up doing a c-section. Cross your fingers for me that I can just have a normal labor. (I realize that there is probably no "normal" but as normal and complication-free as possible.)

One time I had a very vivid dream about having a baby that grew at an incredible rate- the worst part was carrying around this really tall man-baby who inexplicably wore bad khakis and sweater vests. Odd...

Right now I feel like I am just clock-watching, waiting for something to happen. I am trying to enjoy the calm and quiet- but that is easier said than done!

Oh my gosh, I can relate! I had a dream my baby was so big my doctor told me to stop taking my prenatal vitamins and start smoking so he would slow down! hahaha. I have a dr. appt. today to see how things are going. Pray for good news!

The waiting game is the worse part! I thought for sure I was going to go early but was 6 days overdue, it was torture. I feel for you- the memory is not so distant for me!

Hang in there and feel well. The last few weeks before my kids were delivered, I became a little obsessed with having pedicures.

If you can, walk. They say walking a lot can bring on labor. Also, PPPG was right on with pedicures...they also say that can stimulate labor. Good luck! You'll have a new baby in your arms in less than 2 weeks!

I have this gut feeling that Baby M is going to come late, but I am sure that as I get towards the end that might change. And def go get a pedi! I am planning on an all out spa day the week I am due.

aha! You know the baby is due soon when you have the weird dreams! Hope you are coping well with the sleep side of things, it can get so difficult as you get bigger! Best of Luck! Should you get desparate - fresh pineapple is supposed to be good (and an anti-inflammatory as well!), doing exercises on a birthing ball (that worked for me!) and apparently, as a last resort to avoid induction - Castor Oil (ugggh!)
