Y'all will enjoy this story: my mom swears that I was 3.5 weeks late. I've known this story for a long time, but I took it with a grain of salt because I was born 42 years ago, and how **sure** is she of her dates?? Also, she could easily have done a little fudging because my parents weren't married at the time ... Anyway, I smile and nod when she tells me this story.
Sooooo, tonight, she brings it up again. My dad wonders how late I am now - 16 days or so. Then he visibly starts to freak out when he calculates how much longer 21+ days would take ... they *were* planning to go home on Monday, but I can't imagine they really will now.
Anyway ... my 40yo brother, who has no kids and has maybe 2 friends who have kids brings up his theory that I must just not know "how" to induce a baby to come out. All of his knowledge is from the show Friends. He questioned me again 'am I really doing **everything** I could?" YES, we are doing everything. YES, that, too.
Then, I said - well, there is one thing we haven't done - castor oil. And I won't do it. My mom heard me mention castor oil, and she jumped into the conversation - DON'T DO IT! i promised her that I have no intention of doing it. She tried it with me!!! And it didn't do anything but make her miserable! My brother asked "it would make you throw up, right?" my mom, DH, and I all laughed.
at this point, all we can do is wait.
take care everyone!
