Nope, no baby yet.
I have, however, come out of the fog (didn't really think about me or the baby much while worrying about Greg) and kicked into high gear for the month. I had hoped to defend my thesis BEFORE my due date, but with everything that went on in Oct, I just scheduled for defending the week after my due date.
Last time I started 'waiting' for the baby and I'm so determined not to do that this time. Sooo... I have my girlfriends toddler while she's in Paris this week, plus a lot of meetings for my Co-op (did I mention I'm president?), next week we'll have some friends over for Thanksgiving and then my defense on the 28th. THEN I can have the baby. My due date is the 20th, but I've recently remembered that I cheated my LMP by 3-4 days, so I might not fit my defense in.
We'll see. I'm a big believer in how your mind plays into things... plus my mother carried 4 children to 42-43 weeks, so I'm confident I have a few more weeks.
Although I did clean my house all weekend, top to bottom. It felt great! I have diapers ready, clothes washed (are they really that small?!) and Cecilia is playing 'baby' with all the baby toys.
Anna- can't wait to check your blog and photos.... they are always so nice.
Augs- croup! Yuck! Is that 'whooping cough' or something different? I hope it passes quickly or your dh can take a day or two off to help you.
Becca- yowie for Robin's skin! My SIL's kids are like that and every time I see them, I slather them in creme. Looks so ouchy! Celia's skin seems okay, so far, except around her mouth where she 'nuks out' at night... she only bathes a few times a week (yes, I'd recommend visiting on day #1 after bathing, not day #3!) but I swear it's better for her skin. It drives my mom nuts, so last week I let it go for 5 days- yikes!
