I'm due today.... and nothing is happening yet...

Today is my due date. Leah is not here. Tony is at work (yay!) And Carlee is keeping me busy. Thankfully, right now she's occupied with playdough. (We've already painted, colored, read, and made & drank some apple cider, her new favorite.) She's definitely keeping me busy....

I'm tired of waiting. I'm so ready to be in the next stage of our life already. I want to hurry up and have my two kids! to be in our new schedule! to get my energy back! to be able to go somewhere without thinking, "Oh, but I might go in to labor." I'm even missing out on a Christmas Card workshop today =( boo. It's okay though, I'm still buying the supplies so I can make them here at home.

My mom and grandma are going to be visiting soon. They're coming in on Tuesday. I'm so excited! Hopefully Leah will be here by then... we'll see. I'm hoping she doesn't wait too long. I want my mom and grandma to spend as much time with all of us as possible. I don't want to spend it being tired and eventually in the hospital. Speaking of which. Another reason I hope Leah decides to come soon, is I know my doctor is going to be pushing for an inducement at 41 weeks at the most. I really, really, really, do not want to induce. He's making a big deal about the weight I put on in the last few weeks. Even though, really, it's not much and I haven't changed ANYTHING in how I'm eating at all. (Besides, I ate less healthy and put on more weight with Carlee, so I'm so not worried about it.) He's just weird, wants to be in control, and is beginning to irritate me.

anyway... time for lunch. Send labor vibes my way!!! =)

The day before I went into labor with Mabel, I had a massage (Ask Tony!) and ate chinese food. But the watermelon really seemed to give me contractions.
With Cale I tried everything. I bounced on an exercise ball, I ate pineapple, I ate spicy food. I had raspberry tea. Along with other things...
It will happen. Enjoy your peace while you can. :D

The waiting is the worst, just remember your body is the best place for her until she's ready to come out! A couple months down the road, when you want a nap, you'll wonder why you didnt' take it now! I'm praying for you!

Emy - LOL I really need to not be pregnant anymore. This pregnancy brain has got to go! I read your comment, and thought, "Now how would Tony know Emy got a massage?" LMAO I'm a dork. I'm trying the raspberry tea as well, and walking, among other things too, =)

Kassie - Thanks for your prayers! So true about my being the best place for her until she's ready. And don't worry, I'm definitely taking my naps. =) Thankfully Carlee is self entertaining enough on most days to let me.

Britt- Aww I wish you could be here too! Love you! Give Jonas a kiss for me. =)
