nope all quiet. LOL my grandma is gonna be upset if this little one isn't out by thanksgiving! She's comming up to IL from FL just to see her. hehe I wonder if Caia is gonna be that much of a punk and come after grandma and grandpa leave. I think she'll be here before then though. Although she's gonna be so young, I really don't want her being passed around from person to person to person just a week or so after she's born, espically in cold/flu season. I'm not thinking there will be any way to avoid that though without having my entire family disown me forever. I'll just try to limit contact as much as possible. Ugh, the thought of about 25 people passing around my newborn.
: I'll just try to "feed" her as much as possible (ie go to my old bedroom every 20 min with her
) My dad sent me a rather irritating email today. He said "well since you're not adverse to trying alternative medicine like chiro and acupuncture, maybe you could try something a little crazy, go to a REAL Dr. They just might have an idea of how to induce labor"
I just replied "induction of labor is very dangerous for both me and the baby. She is much safer waiting in there until she is ready to come out. Induction not only has problems in it's self, but it greatly increases the chance of c section which doubles or quadruples my chance of dying and can cause many many problems for the baby, including breathing difficulty even several months after the delivery. I won't harm my baby just because it's uncomfortable to be pregnant for so long. She will come out when she is ready. " I wanted to say that I won't harm my baby just because some family members can't be patient
: I told my husband, just in case I forget about all of this, next time I'm pregnant, make sure I pad my due date by AT LEAST a month. Mabye 2. That way everyone can be pleasantly suprised when the baby comes "early"
