Sending lots of love and
to everyone on this thread, but most easpecially AustinMom and bohemama who, like me, are not just post-dates, but basically expired.
Reading this thread does make me a little teary (okay, a lot teary, but even thinking of a candy I might like to eat makes me a LITTLE teary), but I am really grateful to have you ladies here for support.
I cried and cried and cried yesterday because the desperation is just so real! Against all odds, DH and I managed to DTD, but it didn't cause anything to happen. He is really pushing for an induction if I haven't had Baby by Wednesday, but I think the main impetus for that is my totally deteriorated emotional state. Honestly, I am a full-time wreck. Call screening is not so much a luxury as a necessity if DH doesn't want me to be unglued 24/7.
Work people seem to think I am already BACK to work, which is like totally hilarious because: NO. I'm just answering all this email and sending stuff out so I can shave a few hours off the maternity leave that is burning so brightly.
I guess one good thing about never getting comfortable and being up all night is that I was up bright and early working. I guess...
We tried to distract ourselves by going to the movies yesterday, but we went to see George Clooney in The American, which was a total downer. I should have pushed harder for Nanny McPhee 2, though it was playing at a movie theater we don't like to go to. Best part: gorged myself in a popcorn frenzy. Half a large? I've never done anything close to that before...
Love you ladies and hoping we all make it to the delivery finish line VERY soon!

P.S. October babies GET BACK IN THERE!
