I am checking back on this thread and laughing now... somewhat maniacally... because... get this...
I am STILL pregnant.
So, I was offered the non-stress test and biophysical profile today at my midwife's office... but I know that he is warm and happy and snug as a bug in there... just waiting and biding his sweet little time. Meanwhile, I have had to cancel my meal train, which would be over this weekend had he come on time. And I'm supposed to be starting classes next week (obviously not going to happen - hardy har har har), so I emailed all of my professors, who are thankfully all very flexible and supportive. I am 3cms dilated and 90% effaced and the little guy's head is about as far into position as it can be without crowning. So... COME ON, BABY!!! What the heck is taking so long? Every single one of my friends and family know better by now than to even call or text... I have been super cranky and mean with even the people I was trying to be nice to about that. My midwife is the only one who finds that hilarious... thank heavens someone does.
I have taught myself how to weave patterned bracelets with seed beads and made three cuff bracelets (one for each of my midwife team), watched four seasons of NUMB3RS on Netflix, read three books in their entirety (and I'm a very slow reader!), shopped for an appropriate fall wardrobe for post-partum, done all the laundry seven times and packed a diaper bag, rearranged the furniture, watched six movies at home and three in the theater, had eight visitors, handled four financial matters, paid all the bills up through next month and stocked the freezer and fridge with as much as it can take. I shower twice a day for no reason other than I can, and I've gone for too many walks around the mall down the street so that the lady who sits at the counter at the jewelry store and I have a regular chat about how to kickstart labor... and I eat Mexican food way more than I want to. What to do next? Any suggestions?
