Ainh, Eleuthia, Sarahdb and Sallyrae- good luck!!! Lilytiger - hope your LO comes very soon and doesn't keep you (and your Dad, who's sitting out his vacation) waiting too much longer! (And regarding my EDD, mine has been moved a couple of times, but I've been pretty consistent w/the tape measure - now at 42cm(wks) as of Friday....)
Hey everyone, I'm still here, lol! We're well into our 3rd weekend now w/no baby..... The hospital has still not called us since our supposed "induction date" on Thurs, and at this point we've given up on calling them for updates. With DH's parents and his DD arriving tomorrow, we figured that we'd make the most of these "extra days" to get them settled in, show them the stores and attractions around the neighborhood so that they can fend for themselves when we finally check in at the hospital. I don't expect the hospital to free up anytime soon, still feeling no signs of labor, and since baby is doing fine, we're confident that we can wait this out until Monday (42 wks)..... I'm just a little nervous right now about delivering a 9 pounder!!! On the plus side, we'll get to catch up w/DH's family for a day (pre-baby, less distracted and still relatively rested), show off the belly, and communicate some of our boundaries and expectations for the week before things get crazy. And really importantly, we'll get to focus on some quality time w/step-DD and help set her expectations for what things will be like when we bring baby home (I was really stressed about our house turning into a circus w/everybody arriving simultaneously and how she would adjust). I still think I may need that extra day at the hospital for DH and I though.... but am feeling a bit more in control about the overall situation.....
....And now we're off to the movies, yet again!!!
