Typical.

That's how things are going here on the pregnancy front, typically! I was due yesterday and still waiting. My doctor has offered to induce me as early as Thursday, and would not like to wait longer than Monday. We will not be choosing Thursday because it is Nick's birthday and we would never choose to make him share it, you give up so much as a parent you should at least get one day all to yourself!

We have plans/activities scheduled for the rest of the weekend and then Nick has to work on Monday and Tuesday so choosing the day this time around is proving rather difficult. I know that should this happen naturally we will be thrilled about it whenever it happens, but in choosing the date there is a sense of making sure it works with life, and a small smidgen of hope that labor will begin on it's own the longer we wait.

However, I do need to be done being pregnant. I know, I know, please hold back all your 'how could you be so selfish to chose your own comfort over your baby' comments should you be urging to spew them forth. My physical limitations and maladies impede my ability to take good care of the children I already have, it's time to be able to bend at the waist again and pick up my 13 month old babe who needs some snuggles.

So, somehow there should be a post up here by Tuesday about our new little one. I may not post much before then because sitting is really. not. comfortable. And I have given myself long to do lists each day to keep from going insane. Like baking 300 cookies, which I'm off to do now.

Can't wait to hear the good news. I'll be praying that you'll have the strength to hang in there until the little one decides to show up! Of course it goes without saying, but a reminder never hurts, You are a GREAT mother. Don't forget it.

I agree with you about having to share birthdays. Our little guy is due March 23rd and my mother-in-law is severly wishing the baby will come on her birthday later that week. My birthday is 2 days after Christmas and I always hated sharing my birthday. There is something to be said for having a special day all to yourself! Of course Dave's birthday is Apr. 1st so there's a good chance our baby will have to share his birthday with someone.

I sure understand about being so ready to give birth.We are so proud of you and Nick for being the wonderful parents you are.

Hey, while you are baking those 300 cookies could you bake some for us? lol

God bless daughter-in-law. We love you.

P.S. Some great people are born on December 1st ;)
I wouldn't mind sharing it with your little one...

I don't think having to CHOOSE the date for your baby's birth is such an easy thing - but this pregnancy must end sometime. And letting it go on to long because nature doesn't take the lead is not only tiring for you but dangerous for both you and the baby - so pick a date with the doctor's guidance and become a beautiful family of 5 already!!!

Love you all and can't wait for the good news.
