no baby today.

it is my due date.

i am getting swollen.

(on the bright side... mw checked me last night and I'm 3cm dialated, 90% effaced... this HAS to mean something)

Still no baby, but worked all day and had an OB appointment. Sitting on my exercise ball and trying to get some things going down there..

Hey, I made a mitten today! At first it lookes like a cervix and I had to take it apart and start again.

I'm hoping that by making things that require a pair I'll jinx myself into going into labor.

Nope, no baby here again today... But I did get a bikini wax! And went to the market and went to the (groan) mall of all places... Why is it that I have to x-mas shop for my mother-in-law when I am hugely pregnant??!!

Anyway - there is always tomorrow for the baby... Cause the day after the eviction notice can not be ignored anymore and I am def having it!

Yesterday I did not have a baby. I had a tantrum, a damn fine eggnog latte, a very expensive locksmiths bill after I locked myself out of the house and pizza.

Today I did not have a baby. Instead, I had a doctor's appointment where I found out that I am still only 50% effaced and a bare 1 cm dilated. Also, I got a referral to the past-due clinic at the hospital, in case I am still pregnant next week.

I am only a *day* past my due date. It's a little early for my doctor to be worrying about me being overdue, don't you think?

Today (so far) I did not have a baby. Instead, I gave DD a bath, took her out to play, and did a load of laundry. Now it's nap time!

I did not have a baby either. I did some laundry...and got in a petty argument with DH about sugar free ice cream...And I cried...I am allowed to eat all the sugary junkness that I want at this junction in my life!!

*pout* I did not have the baby today either... I will be induced tomorrow - not the way I wanted to start life w/this baby, but so it goes. Still only 1cm and chances are very unlikely that tonight labor will shift into gear.

Anyway - cheers to all you mammas still awaiting your bundles - you are lucky that you can wait it out even if it stinks for the phyche sometimes!

Today I did not have a baby and I whined alot and cried some because I'm so darn tired. This prodromal labor is killing me as are all the Christmas activities we have going on and not being able to send the kids outside because it's too darn cold. They're bored, I'm bored.

Today I didn't even come close to having a baby. I did wash baby clothes that I forgot about. (Not dried ) Let ds make dinner with me, let dd make cookies and lost my temper at dinner when the kids wouldn't eat. Oh and I made that other mitten...now to make 4 more. I may just wrap presents tonight as well.

Today I did not have a baby. This does not surprise me. I'm going to set up my little tent in prodromal labor land and move right in. I expect to be here until January. I'm taking applications for neighbors... anyone want in?

Today I DID:

Bake a cake (and eat WAY too much of it all by myself)
Meet with the midwife
Test positive for blood in my urine which the mw thinks is a bit of blood in my vaginal discharge
Cry over everything from a tv commercial to songs on the radio.
Finish my Christmas/Yule shopping
Walk for an hour
Manage to keep my sanity and get through another day

I'm thinking I could be here till January too.

Today, I did not have a baby. But I did have all my carseats checked and fitted by a CPS tech. I helped DH pick up presents for his family. And now I'm watching waterbirth videos on youtube.

Yesterday I did not have a baby. I went grocery shopping, took the kids to the library, made lots of chex mix for gifts, cleaned, folded and put away the baby clothes, made dinner and then thought I might be going into labor...but then I didn't. I definately felt different last night. Ctx that took my breath away every 5-10 minutes. Unfortunatly, after a couple hours they were staying the same and I decided to go to bed.

I do feel like baby moved down though, so that's good.

I'm exhausted today, these constant ctx wear me out.

Dh and I are planning on going out for Mexican and then finishing Christmas shoppping tonight, hopefully between the spicey food and walking things will start up and not fizzle out. My due date is tomorrow. I have never been this pregnant before.

My ob hadn't even seen my chart yet when i went in at 39 weeks and was already telling me he wouldn't let me go to 42 weeks.... obs are silly sometimes.... this is why i like the midwives.-23/////////////////

Today, I did the school run, watched Mary snooze, yawn, pick her nose and fidget with baby Jesus's swaddling clothes throughout the nativity play, did some more Christmas shopping, brought all kids home from school and then made two banana breads and a sausage casserole for the freezer and dinner tonight- and the cranberry sauce for Friday, which is now in the freezer. So a fairly productive day, apart from the lack of baby.

I did my last day at work, got everything ready for transfer to my substitute, did a load of laundry, and did dishes. I'm 2 days from my EDD but ready for baby anytime!
