Still waiting...

I guess I was just born to incubate. It must be warm and cozy in there. It's two days past my due date.

I'm not really fretting that much it's just that I feel like I should be at work. I opted to just go ahead and start maternity leave yesterday. I figured being calm and relaxed and not stuck in the terrible traffic on I-66 would be better than being an hour or more away if and when my water breaks!

A friend's mom, a nurse, calculates due date differently. Date of last period, count back three months, add 7 days. So that puts my due date at March 9. Tomorrow. I can deal with that...but I'd like her to be born then too. I'm ready to meet her!

I've had chicken Parmesan, black licorice, acupressure, spicy food. We'll see what happens.

Thinking of you. Do what you need to do to spur that little one along.

We do miss you at work but know you are making the right decision to stay at home. Emma must be enjoying all the activity from the inside!
