No baby yet. I don't know why. I am dilated to 4+ and I have tried a lot of things to get labor started. I even ran intermittently while walking the other day. Everything I have tried has just made me sore and exhausted but I am getting a lot done. Reorganized the garage recently. Sewed some projects I had planned - recovered her carseat, made a carseat cover you know to protect from weather and peekers while sleeping, and sewed me a nursing cover. Sanded and painted my dresser yesterday and sewing pillows for my bed. Now I feel like I might have to do it again because I am not sure I like the color. Reorganized and cleaned the pantry closet. Organized our office and got rid of the paper avalanche on my desk. Super cleaned the whole house today. This baby is chicken to come out I think because I was having contractions, 1 every hour on New Year’s Eve after the Dr. checked me vigorously that day and told me she was almost 8 lbs. We really wanted a New Years baby! And we wanted to have her while Luke has been home with Christmas break. Luke took this Thursday and Friday off and worked on our business at home because we thought I would go into labor.
We thought 1/2/13 would be cool, then 1/3/13 would be cool. Now I think any day would be cool. I do think we are having a chicken though not a baby! How do I make her run out of room or get braver to come out? I don't blame her though, this is a pretty scary world she is coming to. I guess I will give her a few more days to be ready. I don't know why but something tells me not do castor oil even though I have heard it works. There are so many people who keep messaging me and calling me to see if we had her yet that, while I feel like it's so awesome that so many people care, it is making me anxious and frustrated that she isn't here yet and I have to keep telling them no. (I am actually not due for 1 more week.)
So Karlie, Lexie, Rosie- whatever your name is, you better hurry up or I am going to drive Luke nuts with my orneriness. He thinks I am taking it out on him. And with my moodiness, I am sure I am. It's a good thing he loves me. Wish me luck for 1 more “fat” week of comments that people just have to “pop,” (see I can be clever too), and I will let you know as soon as she is here. Whenever she comes, it will be right! Hollie
