Well, we are still here awaiting some baby action. I realize my official due date is still almost two weeks off (8/12), but when every child has been early so far, it’s hard for me to not get a little impatient at this stage. The boys have been very patient, but starting tomorrow that may change. They know that the baby is coming in August, so this week I’ve been answering a lot of “HOW long until August?!” questions.
The official stats are…as of Tuesday morning, 80% effaced, 2 cm dilated. Sorry if that’s TMI for some of you. I have friends who want to know 🙂 My weight is holding steady, which is a happy thing in my mind, because the baby is picking up weight and I’m losing it. Blood pressure is golden.
I have a feeling this may be a large baby…I am bigger than I was with Jonathan, and my RIBS! OH, MY RIBS! Can I have them back, please??!! I forgot to ask for a guess on the weight at my appointment yesterday. Suffice it to say I can’t wait to take that first deep breath after the baby’s born.
I am trying to stay busy but I don’t really feel like doing anything. So I’m looking around the house, trying to find things to do. This means I’m doing exciting things like washing random household items (throw rugs, duvet covers, and the like) and making a ton of basil pesto (both green and purple!).
We are also taking full advantage of the fact that our church has dinner for all the families before their evening VBS begins. I haven’t cooked dinner all week! What a unique provision…thank you Lord!
